Why a friendly URL?
Server names, in most of the companies we serve, are usually
strange curious and hard to memorize. So, instead of using “nrio765ftfs“ or “ihmtztfsapp“ (real names of TFS servers in two of our customers) wouldn’t it be easier to use e.g. tfs.mycompany.com.br? To assign a friendly name to TFS, you need to take into account the various components of the solution that need to be changed. So, I decided to create a series of posts explaining how to configure each component of TFS. As the posts are published, I’ll update this post with links.
- TFS Application Tier ;
- Reports (SQL Server Reporting Services) ;
- Project portal (SharePoint);
- Data warehouse (SQL Server, SQL Server Analysis Services);
- Build (drops, symbols);
- (Bonus) Visual Studio Release Management Server.
Stay tuned – more to come!
