Recently one of my customers ran into a TFS workspace issue. They were getting below error when they open TFS project in Visual Studio 2010:
“TF14091: you cannot perform this operation on workspace. domain/eid are not the owner of the workspace”
Issue cause: VS cache the login credentials for workspace. When we try login with current credentials still it take old credentials from cache.
Solution: Clear the cache and reload it. Follow below steps to do that:
Step 1: Open VS command prompt.
Step 2: Run below command to clear the local cache.
tf workspaces /remove:*
Step 3: Run below command to set the Owner for respective TFS server
tf workspaces /s:TFS_ServerName
