Once you have followed the parts you need to, you might want to do as I did and make a few changes.

I also needed to do a few extra bits to have the functionality I required delivered to the server and TFS clients

  • Visual Studio 2010 and MSSQLMS (Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio) need to connect to TFS
  • VS 2010 must also compile and debug javascript/jquery in the background as much as it does for the .NET object model
  • I want to get the most out of my dev team so I am also going to install a couple of VS2010 extensions to make them work faster and more efficiently
  • The TFS 2010 server is going to have some handy Administration tools installed
  • TFS will also have Team Explorer 2010 installed and TFS 2010 service Pack
  • Use a FQDN for connectivity rather than machine name to access TFS requires loopback be disabled http://support.microsoft.com/kb/896861

So to begin with lets list the software and the download locations

loopback cure

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\

add a REG_DWORD named “DisableLoopbackCheck”” and set it to decimal value 1

or

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\MSV1_0

add a REG_MULTI_SZ and enter each domain name on new lines to allow loopback on only those domains
