Upgrade TFS 2010 to 2015 on-premises

Was concerned this was going to be hard work, but turned out better than expected.

Really brief notes:

Install

TFS Server 2015 will install SQL Server 2014 standard

 

Process template upgrades

If the TFS work items intranet console does not work then:

  1. https://msdn.microsoft.com/library/vs/alm/work/customize/add-features-manually#update-processconfig
  2. Download process template
  3. I created .bat files to practice with a less significant project, then moved to main projects. Sample script below. Must be ran as administrator. May be remote to the TFS Server.
    Had to repeat for various work item types

 

cd C:\
set root="%programfiles(x86)%\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\Common7\IDE"
cd %root%
pause
witadmin importwitd /collection:http://<server>:8080/tfs/DefaultCollection /p:"<project>" /f:"D:\Users\<user>\Documents\Visual Studio 2015\VS-TFS Process Templates\Agile\WorkItem Tracking\TypeDefinitions\UserStory.xml"
echo Done
pause
