Team Foundation Server Integration Tools (March 2012 Release)
The TFS Integration Tools is a project developed by the Team Foundation Server (TFS) product group and the Visual Studio ALM Rangers to integrate Team Foundation Server with third party systems for migration and synchronization of data.
First we used TfsImport to import a 2008 TFS into a secondary 2012 collection, but noting the database schema of the imported data didn't match the original 2012 we weren't happy to use it going forward so we used TfsIntegration to migrate just the code and comments over to the original 2012 "DefaultCollection". All worked great. We didn't have a need for anything more than the core code and comments.
A nice idea but it tries to migrate all the data at once, storing everything in memory. What that means is that when you try to push a significant amount of data through it, it just explodes with an out of memory exception. It's also x86 so it has a pretty restrictive memory cap as it is.
It has a database which it uses to store migration settings, so it seems as if it could also use this to store the data it's migrating, because at the moment it's not much use.
Hi, When i configure the tool for detailed migration from clearcase to TFS, the dynamic view drive is identifying only the M drive even though it is mapped to A drive.Using M drive the migration doesnt happen at all.
Can any one specify the reason, why only M drive is identified.
There is no "easy" synchronization for defects between TFS and HP ALM. You will be adding numerous fields to both to capture the data from the other system as there are very few fields that are able to truly synchronize. Read all the documentation from HP and TFS on the synchronization (be prepared for a complex mapping solution especially if you have highly customized both systems).
