Upgrading from WSS 3.0 to SharePoint 2010 on TFS 2010


So, you installed TFS with the basic install and it just put WSS 3.0 on there by default.  No you want to go to SharePoint 2010!  Not so fast!  The install guide is not that helpful and can be right down misleading in this regard.  So, having just completed this ordeal in a shade under 10 hours (with MS support), let me give you my lessons learned.

  • You will have to do a database attach upgrade of SharePoint (in-place is not an option) with WSS.
  • Make sure to un-install WSS 3.0 AND un-install the TFS SharePoint extensions feature  BEFORE installing SharePoint
  • If you are unable to get TFS to recognize that you did indeed uninstall the SharePoint extensions, use this command: Tfsconfig setup /uinstall:sharepointextensions
  • If all else fails, you may have to manually install the TFS SharePoint extensions, which is really just a set of three SharePoint solutions.  Here are the commands to do so:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\bin\stsadm.exe -o addsolution -filename “c:\Program Files\Microsoft Team Foundation Server 2010\Tools\Templates\Microsoft.TeamFoundation.SharePoint.wsp”

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\bin\stsadm.exe -o deploysolution -name Microsoft.TeamFoundation.SharePoint.wsp -local -force

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\bin\stsadm.exe -o addsolution -filename “c:\Program Files\Microsoft Team Foundation Server 2010\Tools\Templates\TswaWebPartCollection.wsp”

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\bin\stsadm.exe -o deploysolution -name TswaWebPartCollection.wsp -local -force -allcontenturls -allowgacdeployment

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\bin\stsadm.exe -o addsolution -filename “c:\Program Files\Microsoft Team Foundation Server 2010\Tools\Templates\Microsoft.TeamFoundation.SharePoint.Dashboards.wsp”

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\bin\stsadm.exe -o deploysolution -name Microsoft.TeamFoundation.SharePoint.Dashboards.wsp -local -force

  • Do not use “Claims” authentication for your SharePoint web application
  • Make sure the TFS Admin account is also put as a Site Collection admin

Otherwise, easy-squeezy, lemon-pleasy 😉
