Today I get to learn how to change a Team Foundation Server from a workgroup based install to a domain based install.

We've had Active Directory for a while, but it was never set up right.  Thanks to Robert Oderkirk at Free State Business for helping us figure out what was wrong.  So now, we have to attach all of our computers to the domain, set up the network users, and hope that TFS plays nicely with the transition.  I need to do more research, but hopefully, I just have to switch the TFS accounts to active directory accounts and re-assign all active tasks to the new network user name.

I'm not a network/server kind of guy.  Servers scare me a bit.  One time I got a letter from my ISP saying that they were shutting down my internet because my IP was a source of spam.  I remembered that a couple weeks before that, I was trying to setup a SMTP service on my server at home.  It wasn't really working right, so I just stopped messing with it.  Apparently, somebody figured out how to use it because there was several thousand message files in the sent folder.  Whoops.
