How to Install and Configure MOSS 2010 for TFS 2010

5 Comments

This video shows how to install and configure MOSS 2010 for TFS 2010. MOSS offers the full featured TFS dashboard experience, but you have to setup MOSS on your own to use it with TFS. And the MOSS setup is somewhat complex.

In this video, we install MOSS on the same server as TFS and even go through the TFS installation. When you’re done with these steps, you’ll have a working installation of TFS 2010 with MOSS 2010.

What do you need to accomplish the steps in this video?

We assume you already have SQL Server setup (but if you don’t, check out this video for instruction). We use the TFS MOSS Configuration tool to configure MOSS 2010, so you’ll want to download it.

You’ll also need a single domain account. We use a single domain account for two identities: 1) the account used to create reports in TFS (TFSREPORTS) and 2) the service account for MOSS (WSSERVICE). This account has to be permissioned with the “Log on as a Service” permission. You can find more information on the accounts required for installing TFS here.

You’ll also need a global security group from the domain that contains all the users to whom you want to grant access to dashboards and reports in TFS.

I don’t want to use the MOSS configuration tool. Where can I find the manual steps for configuring MOSS 2010 for TFS 2010?

At this point, no manual instructions exist. However, I have taken over this space and intend to make creating these instructions a priority. For now, you’ll have to use the tool.

UPDATE: I have published the manual instruction for configuring MOSS 2010 on MSDN. If you’re more of a watch and learn kind of gal (or guy), you can also check out this video I created that walks you through the entire process.

Speaking of the tool, I found a bug in it on MOSS 2010 during the making of this video, but working with the product unit, we found a workaround for the bug, so I wanted to mention the workaround here.

Where can I find the manual steps for the other procedures in this video?

Glad you asked:
