Working offline with Team Foundation Server

Thu, Jul 19, 2007
I’m just about done reading Professional Team Foundation Serverand at the end I found this little gem: This tip needs the Team Foundation Power Tool (tfpt.exe) to work. When you are working offline you just clear the read-only attribute on the files you want to edit. Later, when you are online, you open the command line, navigate to your workspace and run: tfpt.exe online Now the power tool will find all those writable files and create a change set from them.

TFS:All files are up to date.

If you do a tf.exe get filename.ext and get All files are up to date. back, it might be because your current directory is not correctly mapped to a folder in the Team Foundation Server project your root folder is mapped to.

TFS Listener for logview4net

I am about to separate the SQL and EventLog listeners to an assembly for MS listeners. A TFS Listener is exactly what that would need. Add: Share and store documents… Free.

If you are looking for your shelved changes in the Source Control Explorer you are out of luck. There is a tool item in the Pending Changes windows for managing you shelved files.

Deleted files in a label, TFS

Sun, Mar 25, 2007
According to this article from the dev team deleted files are not left in a label. This might lead to some nasty surprises when you are in to restructuring your code base (as we are now). It is nice that we can get files from a specific point in time instead.

TFS Server with friendly DNS name

Thu, Jan 4, 2007
Since I didn’t find this info the first time I searched I’ll add it here to. This is what you have to do to get the Team Explorer to work correctly if your TFS Server has a different DNS name than it’s machine name. …and what is really missing in that instruction is to disconnect/reconnect you project in Team Explorer since all URL’s are cached on the client.
