Q: Can I run a second, third, etc. build agent for TFS 2015?

February 17th, 2016 · No Comments · Team Foundation Build (TF Build), TFS 2015

This post applies to the new TFS 2015 Build Agents (not XAML Build Agents).

Answer: Yes, you can run multiple agents on the same machine.

To install an additional build agent, make sure to download the Agent.zip file from your TFS again (do not just copy the existing Agent folder as it contains configuration) and run the ConfigAgent.cmd file to register the new agent.

Note: For fully automated installations, you can configure a build agent using:

Agent\VsoAgent.exe /configure
