After having some problems recently to install a TFS platform, I decided to post some tips and tricks about it.
Even if your favorite search engine (just in case I precise Bing www.bing.com ) is your best friend to troubleshoot errors with a copy/paste of the error number or/and error descriptions, you can have multiple causes for the same error.

- TFS31001: Team Foundation cannot retrieve the list of team projects
- This error is most of time linked to security permissions
- If you try to access to http://<yourreportserver/reports/pages/folder.aspx and you do not see folder content with your admin account
- If you try to access to the TFS webservice
