The TFS Rangers team has just published a guide to help you get ready to upgrade from TFS 2008 to 2010.
This guide covers scenarios which may be encountered during and after the upgrade process. It provides examples of most common and potential issues. It covers scenarios related to general Upgrade Process, Work Item Templates, Reports, and Enterprise TFS Management (ETM).
