I have team foundation server 2010 on a standalone server. I can connect to the server remotely via Visual Studio 2012 Team Explorer. I'm trying to migrate TFS 2010 to TFS 2012 to a new hardware and want to know what are all the checked out files and the person checked out to.

I ran this command from visual studio command window

tf status $/MyFolder /user:* /recursive > c:\MyPendingCheckouts.txt


I'm getting message saying "Unable to determine source control server". How do I connect to my tfs server from the above command?

Are there any other ways to get this information easily..

On  Team Explorer in VS right click  server name and select properties, you need to enter  entire URL parameter including http,  port number,  for example,

http://devserver:8080/tfs/defaultcollection

so for  the command is just

tf workspaces /collection:"http://devserver:8080/tfs/defaultcollection"

that may solve the issue of  "Unable to determine source control server"

If still not working, try to alternative to tf command, try to install , TFS 2010 power tools,
http://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/c255a1e4-04ba-4f68-8f4e-cd473d6b971f

You can then right click on any folder in Source Control Explorer and select "Find in source control" > "Status"

the default option is to find all checked out files in the path you have selected

Hope understand your question completely, if not, please pt it out

have the "Team Foundation Server 2010 Power Tools" installed.  You can then open Source Control Explorer and navigate ‘Find in Source Control’ > ‘Status…’  . This enables you to get a list of list of checkout files or per user level.
