"Team Foundation Server 2012 Illustrated Install Guide v1.0" from the field... (i.e. someone doing it all the time...)
I do a lot of Team Foundation Server installations and – well, they can be a little tricky. There are a lot of steps and, while they’re not that hard, you really have to pay attention to the steps.
Over the years, I’ve found that it’s helpful to have a step-by-step guide with screenshots to help walk me through the process so I always write one. I figured that this might be useful to those of you who are tasked with installing and configuring TFS so I decided to post it. In its current v1.0.0 form, this guide walks you through the process of installing Team Foundation Server 2012 (TFS2012), the TFS2012 Build Service, System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2012, and TFS Lab Management. (NOTE: it assumes that TFS2012 and the SQL Server database for TFS are on the same box.)
Here are the individual chapters:
If you're doing TFS installs or thinking about it, this is a MUST read guide. Available both online and off and both are awesome...
