Here are the screenshots from upgrading a TF Build from 2012 to 2013.2:
On the TFS application, if you try to access TFS using its FQDN you receive a “Not authorized” or “Unauthorized” error.
How to fix
Try disabling the authentication loopback check as described in KB 887993 (there are two methods, where setting BackConnectionHostNames is the preferred one).
Solution #1: Change config file
The Solution #2: Install a local SMTP server
Product: Microsoft Team Foundation Server 2010 – ENU – Update ‘KB2182621′ could not be installed. Error code 1603.
In my case the log file indicated that permissions to the Master database were missing. I made sure the setup user got sysadmin priviledges for the time of the SP install and it went through very smoothly.
Probably the .ISO file is corrupt.
How to fix:
You can try to re-download the .ISO file or use the VS SP1 Web Installer (which downloads only the required patches itself) and re-apply the patch, when asked to chose between re-apply and uninstall.
The .ISO file has the following checksums (according to Heath Stewart’s blog post):
Updated (Sept 3rd, 2011) to include link to checksum of .ISO file. (Thanks to Ahmed Ilyas)
You want to install SharePoint 2010 complete install and use local accounts (instead of Active Directory accounts).
You receive the following error message:
The workaround is to use a PowerShell script instead of the Wizard, as explained at: http://sharepoint.microsoft.com/blogs/fromthefield/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=112
If you configured a public FQDN for your TFS and the "Team Web Access" link on the project portal still points to the non-FQDN URL…
… all you need to do is: using the Team Foundation Admin Console, in the "Extensions for SharePoint Products" node, change the TFS URL (= Integration Target) to use your public name (with FQDN):
Microsoft released an update (KB 983578) for:
It’s the same update package that will update the client and server components.
According to Brian Harry and the KB article:
- Improves performance for Lab Management Workflow Wizard.
- Improves performance for running automated test cases on Network Isolated Lab environments.
- Fixes an issue in which a Test Controller service account that is the same as a Lab Service account causes issues with environment capabilities.
- There is a new Expression Encoder 4.0 based Video Diagnostic data adapter to collect video recording when you perform tests. This diagnostic adapter replaces the Windows Media Encoder base video diagnostic adapter.
- Labels created in TFS2008 do not contain items after migration to TFS 2010 under certain rename/delete conditions.
- TFS Cannot be re-installed (ATOnly) targeting a database that was patched before.
- Tfs2010Beta2ToRTM operation is not executed when RC database is upgraded by post RTM server (RTM + Patch1 or SP1).
- VS2008 “smart device” projects pick up the 2010 MSTEST rather than the 2008 one.
- Unavailable build agents are pinged indefinitely rather than giving up after an hour.
- Duplicate changeset listings in build report.
- Test results for VS2008 solution not published in case of a failed test.
- Cannot delete build drops if a controller goes down
- Open Process File Location” grayed out on menu- right click on a build definition when connected to a TFS 2008 server
- Branch from label has been removed in TFS 2010 – now it’s back.
- Convert folder to branch on a hierarchy root folder with children and cycle renames crashes VS.
- Unshelve reports bogus errors about a null DownloadUrl when dependent renames are shelved and child item names overlap.
- Incorrect query plan on QueryPendingChanges when querying all users pending changes can lead to bad performance.
- merge /discard in both directions causes unnecessary “empty” merges in future merge attempts.
- Issue in merge causes a conflict not to be generated when there is a rename in the target and source.
- Overly aggressive automatic detection of file encoding can result in inappropriate encoding mismatches during merges.
Work Item Tracking
- Work item queries containing references to deleted fields can cause a red X on the work items node.
Team Web Access
- Firefox Browser: "Link Selected Items to a New Work Item" and other dialogs don’t launch pages successfully
- Chrome Browser: Adding an attachment doesn’t work
- Chrome Browser: Select Query Dropdown doesn’t work in Choose Work Items window
- Chrome Browser: Retain/Delete a build in Build Report page will get an exception “Unexpected callback response”
- Query Picker Web Part Incorrectly Renders List Items (Rows) in List View (Overflow DIVs) within WebKit-based Browsers (including Safari, Chrome, etc)

Getting this error (and your TFS is installed on a Domain Controller)?
An error has occurred during report processing. (rsProcessingAborted)

Logon failed. (rsLogonFailed)
Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070569)
