MSDN Magazine – Migrating from an On-Premise TFS to TFS Preview Using the TFS Integration Tools

Our latest MSDN article has just appeared on MSDN May 2012 Web Issue Smile


In this article, we demonstrate a migration from an on-premise Microsoft Team Foundation Server (TFS) 2010 to Team Foundation Service Preview, which uses the latest TFS Integration Tools. You can use these tools during the preview period, or at least until the hosted service offers a more direct attach/detach experience. The intent of this article is to walk you through some of the product’s key features, supplementing the technical information and guidance found in the product documentation.

Enjoy the read!

    How about a two-way sync between Codeplex and TFS Preview?

  2. Although synchronization is not covered in the article, it is feasible using a different
    session configuration. However, as eluded to in the article and the product
    guidance, synchronizations come with a high maintenance cost and should only be
    considered when a migration is not feasible. The product configuration
    documentation covers the session types, planning and configuration of a
    potential synchronization.
