This article outlines an approach for performing TFS migrations to a new data center (in a different domain) where there is limited or no connectivity between the current and target environments. In this context, migrating the TFS deployment includes restoring backups of the TFS (config & collections), SharePoint (content), and SSRS (reports) databases in the new domain environment. If you are faced with this scenario, read on. Even if this does not match your scenario, some parts of the information covered here may still be useful when dealing with large numbers of changes to existing TFS, SharePoint, and SSRS user identities and permissions.
