get-tfsserverstatus.ps1 – fetch the configuration bits of your TFS server

It's currently in the collection as get-tfsstatus.ps1 which has caused confusion since it doesn't act like "tf status", but it's intended to run on your app tier and gather some config settings - I use it to confirm the right things have changed when using "tfsadminutil activateat" or "tfsreg" or whatever.

Note that it needs to run on the app tier, as it uses a local registry path to figure out where the TFS bits are installed and then uses a local filesystem path to read the web.config files.

It'll change over time, since right now I haven't done the WMI calls to get the IIS settings (web sites, app pools, etc), although they'll be easy to add, I just need to get around to it 🙂  It's also ripe for a good bit of refactoring, but it's in the "works for me" category right now 🙂

Example output (from one of our lab machines):
