    Hi I am new to TFS and need to migrate a .NET project from TFS 2010 to TFS 2015 along with automating build and deploy process and also automating VM creation.

    Why are some of the labs NOT available in TechNet Virtual Labs (https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/virtuallabs)? Specifically: •Introduction to Test Planning with Microsoft Test Manager 2015; •Introduction to Test Case Management with Microsoft Test Manager 2015.

    1. Filter on Developer Tools->Microsoft Visual Studio->Software Development Lifecycle and then search on "Introduction". I see both of these labs are in there (though the search/refresh is super slow). Good luck!
