Screen Gallery: Upgrading WSS 2.0 to WSS 3.0

You updated to TFS 2008, but since the upgrade process doesn’t touch your already installed WSS you are responsible for upgrading it yourself.

(Be aware: if you do not use the same port as your TFS is configured to talk to today you need to change the TFS registration using TFSAdminUtil afterwards!)

TF220064 when trying to upgrade to TFS 2008

I you received:

TF220064: An error occurred while the Setup program was querying the settings from the server that is running SQL Server Reporting Services. This error is most likely caused by your account not having the required administrative permissions on the server that is running Reporting Services. Click Next to try again. For more information about this error, see the installation logs. For more information about the installation logs, see “Troubleshooting Installation for Team Foundation” in the Team Foundation Installation Guide.

Cause:

You probably use FQDN names for your reporting services server as explained here.

Workaround:

Change URI for the ReportsService to use a NETBIOS name instead of a fully qualified domain name (FQDN) – and revert it back after successful setup.

 

(Special thanks to Daniel Hackel who administers this environment and had to go all the upgrade trouble as well.)

Uninstalling TFS 2005 (services) on the app tier removes reporting services virtual directories

After uninstalling TFS 2005 (services) from a standby TFS application tier the SQL Server Reporting Services were not available, i.e. browsing http://server/reports and http://server/reportserver/ resulted in a 404 error.


Workaround:


Run the Reporting Services Configuration Tool and recreate both virtual directories and re-configure the identities.

Problem when upgrading to TFS 2008: Setup has detected that the specified database server is already in use by another Team Foundation Server (services) computer…

When trying to upgrade to TFS 2008 you receive the following error message on your primary AT shortly after starting the setup program

“Setup has detected that the specified database server is already in use by another Team Foundation Server (services) computer. Click OK to configure this computer as a stand-by Team Foundation Server (services) computer. Click Cancel to specify a different database server.”

Cause:

You are using a fully qualified domain name (FQDN) to reference your Team Foundation Server application tier.

Workaround:

  1. Remove the FQDN (run the ActivateAt command with the NETBIOS name), i.e. change it back to the regular NETBIOS name.
  2. Apply the TFS 2008 upgrade.
  3. Re-apply the FQDN.

 

Update: There is an official KB article now.

 

Enjoy TFS 2008!
