If anyone out there has experience with Team Foundation Server installations, I would really appreciate some help.

I am installing TFS 2008 on one server, so everything is there -- SQL, SharePoint, et. al.  I have followed all of the instructions and installed all of the prerequisites.  I am now ready to install Team Foundation Server.

When I run through the install application, I get to the Windows SharePoint Services page.  Now, I have a SharePoint installation already, so the application has disabled the Install and configure Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 on this computer option.  Instead, I am asked to supply the configuration site URL and the default site URL.  So I do this:

Configuration site:  http://<servername>:22758

Default site:   http://<servername>:80

Then I click Next.  The install application works for a bit and then returns this error message:

TFS220034: The default URL for Windows SharePoint Services could not be found at the following location

http://<servername>

Anyone know what that error means?

Oh, another piece of information.  If I try to navigate to http://<servername>:80 or http://<servername>  the web site does not work.  I get a general DNS error.

So I tried building another site; thinking this could be the new default site.  I built http://<servername>:81 and this site works.  But if I use this URL in the TFS install application, I get an error about this site not containing the default site collection.  Sorry, but I forgot to copy that error message.

I hunted the 'Net a bit last night but did not find much to lead me to resolving this issue.  Please, if you know anything, make a comment on this blog.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Clarify something for me: You said you already had Sharepoint installed. So do you have Sharepoint installed on the TFS server itself? And is it the full Sharepoint Portal Server or just Windows Sharepoint Server? Or is Sharepoint on a different machine.

Email me back and we'll see if we can't get you going.

Hey,

I'm one the resident TFS expert here at GWB. Try uninstalling WSS and let the TFS installer install it. You might have better luck. Also did you install it in farm mode or full. I mean did it install it's own DB? TFS creates it's own site collection DB. So if you didn't install it properly you might have issues. My best bet is for you to uninstall WSS and let the setup install it himself.

Cheers,

ET

I installed SharePoint based on the insturctions from the TFS 2008 Help Documentation. The title of the document I used is, "How To: Install SharePoint Products and Technologies on Windows Server".

I have SharePoint installed on the same server as where I want to install Team Foundation Server. According to the documentation, this is permitted.

As for which version of SharePoint, it is what comes with the TFS discs. Unfortunately, I do not know what version this is.

Thanks for the suggestions guys!

I'll try a few more tests on IIS and then see what else I can do. It seems funny to me that sites on ports 81 and 22758 both work while the site on port 80 will not work. That seems like IIS to me but I do not know what else to check for.

I may just have to try and remove WSS. I am not sure what else to check on.

I got the same problem as you described.
Windows Server 2008 with default installation of IIS 7(no changes since I added this role), Windows SharePoint Service 3.0 with SP1, I put all these on the same server (including SQL server). WSS was configured as the TFS 2008 installation guide instructs, except for one step:
20. At the command prompt, type the following command, where [Domain\TFSSETUP] is the domain and user name of the account that you will use when you install Team Foundation Server:

stsadm.exe -o siteowner -url http://localhost:80 -secondarylogin [Domain\TFSSETUP]

I run this command in the Command-Line Prompt and stsadm.exe reports it cannot find the site with the specified url.
I'm confused.
Before this, I've followed the guide carefully and make sure every detail is matched. Now the execution is returning an error, feeling I'm caught unwares.
And I can't figure out why the url is hard coded into the installation guide. Shouldn't be a variable changing along with different environment just like [Domain\TFSSETUP] does?

Thanks in advance for your time.

arshad, take a look at my other post regarding installation (http://geekswithblogs.net/NEParis/archive/2008/01/16/118607.aspx). Maybe this will help.

I had this error and found out it was just because I wasn't puttings the managed path at the end. In my opinion, my default site collection is my root site collection, which is just the base DNS URL for our site. I have nothing built under the "sites" managed path, so I didn't put it in the box and got the error above. Once I went back and simply added "/sites" to my base URL, it worked like a charm.

In my case, I already have a full separate farm built and am putting TFS on a separate VM with its own local DB (for now to test but will probably combine it with my MOSS DB server in prod).

#1 - For TFS 2008 installation to use an existing instance os WSS 3.0, you should have installed WSS 3.0 and extend the "Default Web site" create a contentDB and make HTTp://servername:80 browsable.

#2 - Or uninstall WSS 3.0 and let TFS 2008 install and configure WSS 3.0

I wish I could be of help to you, vineet. Unfortunately, I have no idea what this error message means. Nor do I know of a resource to send you to in order to fix it. I wish you the best as you work through this.
