Migrating TFS to New Hardware

prerequistes: make sure both machines have the same version of tfs and have the same patches. Example: We had our old version with sp1 and the new tfs only had RTM. You will need to apply sp1 so no version conflicts occur with tfs_configuration.

Don’t worry about migrating the tfs_warehouse and analysis cubes as those can be rebuilt from tfs_configuration.

So work on reporting after you have tfs_configuration working on the new box.
