Hi,

We have a TFS Server 2008 setup running in our environment. It has multiple projects running .
We want to export and archive a single project entirely and restore it in a different server in different location.
Please let me know the possibilities.

Thanks,
krishnamus

The software should have a backup/restore function. Backup the project on the current server. Install TFS on the 2nd server, and restore (should be similar to how it was backed up). The restore may give you an option to adjust the directory it's being restored to.

You will then need to point the clients to the new project location. First you will need to share the directory the new files have been put it. You can do this by right clicking the directory, and clicking sharing/security. You will need to click share this folder and configure a name to share it.

On the client I expect you will find the project is accessed using a network drive (S: for example) pointing to the project files on the server. This will need to be replaced with the new link. So you will have to disconnect the old network drive. Navigate to the new server by opening run within start menu typing "\\<new server name>" which will list the shares, right click the newly shared directory with the project files within, and click map network drive. You will need to assign the network drive the same drive letter as it had previously on the old server.

TFS 2008 does not have backup and restore facility.

Please provide with some additional information on this.Means are there other ways where a single TFS project can be backed up and restored...like any third party tools or upgradation to higher versions?
