Getting ready to upgrade

The RTM release of Team Foundation Server is just days away. If you installed the Beta 3 Refresh version or the RC version, you might be wondering how you’re going to upgrade to the RTM version. There are two guides available to help you do this. While both guides are available as part of the software package you’ll need to download from the Microsoft Web site in order to upgrade, we are also posting them here so you can read ahead. You can view the Upgrading from Team Foundation Server Beta 3 Refresh to the Release to Manufacturing Version (RTM) of Team Foundation Server guide or the Upgrading from Team Foundation Server Release Candidate (RC) to the Release to Manufacturing Version (RTM) of Team Foundation Server guide, to help you plan for your upgrade.

These are long documents, with many complicated steps – as the process dictates. Be sure to read them carefully before starting your upgrade. For additional guidance, information, and assistance with your upgrade, visit the Microsoft forum. We hope these documents help you. As always, comments are welcome.
