Continuing along with my recent flurry of posts regarding various Visual Studio 2010 guidance being released by the Rangers, here’s one that has perfect timing for me personally – the Visual Studio 2010 Upgrade Guide.
If you are planning on upgrading from Team Foundation Server 2008 (or even TFS 2005) to TFS 2010, then this guide is a gold mine of information. It covers in-place upgrades as well as migration upgrades and details the steps that must be completed for more than a dozen specific scenarios. For example, enabling branch visualization in upgraded projects, splitting team projects into multiple collections, and much more.
Although this guide is currently listed as a “beta” release, it contains a lot of great information. If you’re planning an upgrade to TFS 2010, I highly recommend you check this guide out.
Update: While you’re at it, it’s worth checking out this post on Rules to Better TFS 2010 Migration.
