Preparing for VSTS 2010: Upgrade process
I've earlier posted about the new installation process, which really simplifies the way we setup TFS. With VSTS 2010 Beta 2 around the corner it's time to start planning for upgrade to TFS 2010 Beta 2 and then forward to RTM. This post is an overview of the overall process of upgrading a TFS 2008 server to TFS 2010. In coming posts I'll dig in to the key steps below in detail.
Requirements for TFS 2010
- Windows Server 2003 or 2008, 32- or 64-bit.
- SQL Server 2008
- WSS 3.0, 4.0, MOSS
The following steps outline the overall upgrade process:
- Uninstall TFS 2008
- Upgrade to SQL Server 2008
- Upgrade to WSS 3.0 SP1 or SP2
- Install TFS. This will copy the bits from the installation media to the local machine.
Configure the features you want from the TFS admin console.
- Team Foundation Server
- Team Build Management
- Team Lab Management
Validate the upgrade
- SQL Server
- Upgrade existing projects to take advantage of the new features in TFS 2010.
