Things hard and not so hard.... RSS 2.0

Folks - my blog has moved to

So we’ve gotten through the final part of our TFS upgrade and as with all new products there’s a sense of anticipation in discovering the new, the brilliant and the clever that’s been baked into these products.

So I’ve offloaded as much as possible such as the DBs, SSRS and Analysis on our SQL2012 cluster, leaving the function of TFS and SharePoint 2010 on the one box.

Here’s my list:

  • TFS source control – tick
  • TFS reporting through SSRS – tick
  • TFS Analytics – tick
  • SharePoint 2010 – tick
  • TFS 2012 – tick
  • Razor? JQuery access? REST API(I’m guessing YES)

Before I embark down the track like the Leyland Brothers I go hit with a very informative message – BOOM

“TF400080: Your system does not have the recommended amount of system memory available: 10 GB. While SharePoint 2010 with Team Foundation Server can operate with less than this amount of memory, the performance will be degraded. Upgrade your system memory to at least the recommended minimum for optimal performance”

Soooo…the old 10GB means it will run ‘better’. I reckon anything in 10GB will run great! SQL supporting 4000 concurrent transactions, etc.

10GB! Run TFS + SP2010 = 10GB (optimal).

I guess for years the ‘recommended guides’ have undersold themselves. This time round, they’re not guilty of that.

Looks to be a great upgrade though.

Cracking on.

I think at the moment, the short answer is no! Off to check the documentation…

”To continue with this installation or upgrade…please remove!…”



From the documentation – we uninstall TFS 2010 bits, but not the DB obviously and you do….

Step 3 Use Control Panel to completely uninstall the previous version of Team Foundation Server. If SharePoint Products is running on a computer other than Team Foundation Server, you have to uninstall the TFS Extensions for SharePoint from the SharePoint server, too. If SharePoint Products is on the TFS application tier, don’t worry: We’ll automatically uninstall the TFS Extensions for SharePoint while we remove the old version of TFS.

Uninstall previous version

Step 4 Run the Team Foundation Server install from the product DVD and then use the Upgrade Configuration wizard to upgrade your installation. But wait—if SharePoint Products is running on a computer other than the computer running Team Foundation Server, you’ll first want to install the new TFS Extensions for SharePoint on the SharePoint server. Similar to the previous step, if SharePoint Products is on the TFS application tier, we’ll automatically install the Extensions for SharePoint while we set up the new version of TFS.

Select upgrade
