The past few months I’ve been playing architect and admin, rather than developer. I have worked with a couple 2010 environments for play and work and at least one upgrade. So here are just a few tidbits that you might not know that I’ve found… When working with the blank site definition you have to activate the taxonomy features through stsadm if you want to use managed metadata. Here is a good article: http://neoassyrian.blogspot... There is a bug ...
You can now get your hands on the Release Candidate version of Visual Studio 2010 and .Net 4.0 if you are an MSDN subscriber. MS also announced that it will make the RC available to all on Wed Feb 10. Upgrade for VS2010 and .Net 4 is an uninstall/reinstall operation. The RC release also includes an updated TFS 2010. If you are upgrading from TFS 2010 Beta 2 to the RC build Byran Krieger blogged some instructions for doing so. Technorati Tags: VS2010,RC,TFS 2010,Upgrade ...
Major Highlights Add Office 2007 File Extensions to default allowable file extensions in Host Settings Add reference to SQL Server 2008 to Install Wizard to make it clear that SQL Server 2008 is supported Moved Whats New Module/Page to Host menu as it contains content which is not applicable to the Administrator Corrected a problem with "Auto" installation option which would occur when using a non-dbo database user Inline updates to Text/HTML were not HTML encoded when stored in the database App_Browser ...
One of my main tasks now that I'm back at work is to migrate our TFS from 2005 to 2008. Our main concern is with process templates. We went to quite a lot of trouble to create our own process template and we do not want to lose that work. I posted a question on MSDN forums about customized process templates migration without much success. So, I decided to dive in on our test environment and see what happens. Test procedure: Prepare a test machine with Windows Server 2003, TFS2005, VisualStudio 2008 ...
I'll preface this by saying this works for renaming your TFS server for internal use. I have not tried this for external use. There might be some more steps to get it to work from the Internet. In the past month we migrated our infrastructure from 2005 to 2008 and in order to upgrade we needed to change a few things. If you recall from this my blog post on the subject Changing to a friendly Team Foundation Server Name we changed the NETBIOS name a new nicer to remember name. Well it turns out that ...
So in this post I will revisit a post I wrote a while back TFS Server Administrators (when you can't be a Windows server administrator). Is it possible to manage a TFS instance without being a windows administrator? Well I'm aware of one thing right now I can't do as a regular application administrator. There are probably others but we are able to be pretty affective by following the steps in this and the previous post. I wrote the first post about a year and half ago and after going through many ...
After we upgraded our server to Team Foundation Server 2008, our builds were failing. To be more specific, our builds were failing for lots of reasons, but the first problem was that the build server was unavailable. We needed to stop the Team Build Service - the build service for TFS 2005 (and set the startup type to manual), before starting the Visual Studio Team Foundation Build service - the build service for TFS 2008.

Take a good last look at Geekswithblogs.net on .Text because tomorrow night, we are doing a major upgrade to SubText 1.9.4. This upgrade will most likely take 4 to 5 hours to ensure the software is converted and stable. I really want to thank Dru and the SubText team for all their work with us during this process. After quite a bit of testing, we have very high confidence in this product and the migration should be seamless. ** IMPORTANT ** If you find any issues with the site after the upgrade, ...
We made a decision on a project I've been on for over a year now to upgrade to ASP.NET 2.0. This is my first major upgrade project, and to be honest, it was fairly smooth. Now that we're on .NET 2.0, we have a few issues, but we'll get to that. First, the upgrade process. We upgraded two projects that shared a library. We ran a test ahead of time, and did it disconnected from source control, and ran into one immediate issue: the first project upgraded just fine, but as soon as we tried to open the ...
