Verify the success of the upgrade and complete other configuration.
In this section I will verify the upgrade of the old projects and review how the old and the new features are working properly, so I will review the migration of the Source Control, SharePoint, Reporting, and also the new features like Task Board and Product Backlog.
After the installation complete, launch Team Explorer, click on Connect to Team Foundation Server, from the drop down select the current server, in our case (TFS12UP) and then select the Default Collection, we will find that it retrieves the old project that was on TFS 2010, I will select that project (MarvelonTFS2010) and click Connect.
In Team Explorer home page, click on Documents, click on Show Project Portal, type the user name and the password, the Dashboard opened successfully but the reports not displaying properly, so we need to add that site to the trusted sites.
Now we are going to verify the new features of TFS 2012, from Team Explorer home page, click on Web Access, type the user name and password, the page open successfully but it’s not displaying properly, so we need to add that site to the trusted sites.
In Internet Explorer go to Tools, Internet Option then Security and add the current site to the trusted sites.
Refresh the page, now the Web Access displayed correctly.
We want to verify the Agile planning Tool, so we will click on Work, we will find it’s not working because this team project need extra configuration because the process template, so we will click on Configure feature.
Click on Verify, to verify that the wizard can perform that configuration automatically, this mostly happen if you are not customizing your process in a complex way that prevent the wizard from upgrade the process template.
