Recently, we needed to run both TFS 2008 Build and TFS 2010 Build on the same machine. I was not able to find ANY docs on how to do this, so, I’m bringing the blog back to life for more storage 🙂
It’s fairly easy to get the two build systems working together, but it does require doing the setup in a specific order.
- Install the compiling environments, VS 2008 and VS 2010.
- Install TFS 2008 Build.
- Install TFS 2010 Build. During the install, the installer will ask for a port for the build services. CHANGE THE PORT USED FROM 9191 to 9192.
- Register the TFS 2010 Build Server with the TFS 2010 collection that it will be building from.
