Get more detailed error message information from the TFS admin tools in TFS 2008.


The TFS administration tools will output error information should a command fail.  There is an environmental setting that you can set before running the command that will cause our tools to output more detailed information.   Simply set the following variable: 


 


Set TfsDetailedErrors=1


 


Now when you run tfsadminutil command you will get more details.
