Same problem as mentioned by 'by Jon Kirby | March 09 2012 ' Visual studio crashes againa and again . I have to uninstall the Tools to make my visual studio work. Thats a shame I can't even use the Tool. Iam hoping some update will be done in order to solve the issue. Else it makes simply useless.
The Team Explorer changes causes Visual Studio to crash whenever you go to Team Explorer. This happens on our main development machines but not on our virtual build machine. On the build machine the additions seem good.
The Windows Explorer integration works fine and is good.
Rating it down due to it's stability issues on some machines.
Is there a procedure for using the Power Tools to restore the databases onto a different server? There is a manual procedure for restoring databases that were backed up manually, but not using this tool.
I am assuming install SQL server and TFS, the Team Explorer and the Power Tools on the other server prior to restore. When I try to restore via the power tool, I am told to drop or rename the existing databases. Since these were just created as part of installing a new instance of SQL and TFS, do I just drop/delete all the databases for TFS? It seems like after I do that, then the restore fails with permission issues. The tool says that the databases restored, but the they didn't restore. Looking at the logs, I got access denied trying to restore.
Not sure what cause this issue. But previously it runs well.
The error show me is: "There is an error in XML document (309, 101). For more information, please refer to the logs. "
Anyone may help?
Logs is too long, how can I attach it?
I've run into the same issue. It is the result of the BackupSets.xml in your backup directory becoming too large. This appears to happen if you take frequent transaction or differential backups and have the number of days to keep set to large. Try setting the number of days of backups lower and/or reducing the frequency of your transactional/differential backups to see if that helps.
Yes - If you try to install TFSPT Sept 2010 over TFSPT April 2010, you will get a dialog stating: "Another version of this product is already installed." You will have to uninstall April 2010 before proceeding.
After installing the Power Tools I started TFS Admin Console and clicked on "Create Backup Plan". An error dialog was displayed with the message, "AdminPTHelper.exe has stopped working.". I did a web search and found absolutely nothing pertaining to this condition. Thoughts?
The View With ... command in the Source Control Explorer is not working on deleted items. (If showing them is activated in Visual Studio.)
Choosing View With ... reports an error that the Item was not found in source control version T.
I hope it's possible to fix this. Thanks.
Hi there, im tryin to create a backup plan for a TFS installation.
The backup is running under account NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICES.
I have configured the backup plan to also backup sharepoint and report server.
The verification process goes fine but when executing the backup plan i get the folllwoing exception:
Info @10:41:41.356] SqlExecuteNonQueryScript threw Sql Exception on statement 'if (not exists(select * from sys.tables where name = 'tbl_TfsTransactionLogMark'))
Create Table tbl_TfsTransactionLogMark
Insert into tbl_TfsTransactionLogMark (logmark) Values (1)
' Exception:System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException (0x80131904): DDL statement is not allowed.
There is no way to set the port to use to connect to the SMTP server. It's hard enough to get the normal TFS alerts to work with a non-standard port (you have to edit the job agent config file by hand).
Did you not consider those of us who don’t use port 25?
During the Server Backup Configuration, in the Alerts Page, when I set the E-mail To Address and click the Test button, the progress image appears but nothing happens.
The SMTP Host IP is there and correct and the Alerts from TFS works.
I´ve tried to click on booth navigation buttons, Previous and Next, but the page doesn´t change.
No errors and no actions.
Where can I check the possible error?
The test e-mail alert process continue running, and only when get in to the Readness Check, an Alert Box popups and show the message:
"You do not have permission to send email alerts."
I check the TFS log and the test was running until the Readness Check.
This tool reverts the recovery model back to FULL when doing a full backup. Is this required to maintain a Full recovery model? If I want to use the simple recovery model, can this be changed to not force it back to full?
If I have the powertools 2.3 for VS2008 installed, do I need to uninstall it to install Powertools 3.1?
If so, does that mean that I will no longer be able to use the powertools in VS2008?
Currently our TFS Server is 2008.
In our shop we have projects that use both VS2008 and VS2010, so I would like to be able to use the powertools in either environment on the same computer. Is that possible?
All versions of power tools (the one for VS 2005, VS 2008 and VS2010) can sit side by side.
So you do not need to uninstall power tools 2008 (nor should you if you using the check-in policy pack)
There will obviously be certain options that integrate specifically for TFS 2010 that would not work (all the TFS server tools).
But from the client side it should all work.
