Change Team Foundation Server – The solution is in a directory mapped to team server …

Scenario

Project was on one TFS Server and you want to move it to another. In this case to visualstudio.com

How did I move the code to a different TFS Server

  1. First unbind the solution projects from the current TFS Server – TODO method
  2. Connected to the new TFS Server
  3. Right-click on Solution – Add solution to source control
    This returned message:
    “Change Team Foundation Server – The solution is in a directory mapped to team server …<the old server>
    Continuing will close the existing team server <the new desired server> and open team server <the old server>. Continue ?
  4. To resolve see steps in: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/957110. I did not do exactly as stated and instead backed up and then edited the VersionConfig.config:
    Note to self: If I get further problems then delete all the files and folders in the Cache as suggested in this web page
  5. Navigate to %userprofile%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Team Foundation\3.0\Cache\VersionConfig.config
  6. I removed the whole related <ServerInfo> section, which in my case only had one mapped path.
  7. Appears to have resolved the matter

End.
