I'm getting close to setting up TFS but not there yet. I'm setting up a single server with
SQL 2008 R2
I'm following the instructions for setting up TFS and have reached the step where I need to setup a secure store in sharepoint 2010.
I have created a global security group in AD called Sharepoint Group and added this to members in the secure store settings.
I need to now "set credentials" for the secure store called "TFS".
It states in the dialog called Set credentials for secure store target application (Group)
Credential Owners: Sharepoint Group
then it asks for
Windows User Name
Confirm Windows Password.
It has a warning that has me very concerned.
I do not know what windows account to use. Am I creating a new account? Should I be using an existing account and if so what one?
I think this is my last step before I install TFS - so please help soon!

Thank you for your post.
According to your description, the issue you are experiencing is you want to know what account is needed in Set credentials for secure store target application (Group) dialog window.
The windows user name and windows password are the TFS data sources account for SQL Server Reporting Services.
Configuring Secure Store Service is optional, if you choose to use it, you will get the benifit that you can use SQL reporting service thought your SharePoint account, just like use the SharePoint account access SQL reporting service, bacause in Secure Store Service we have set the credential for accessing SQL reporting service. Yes, the account is what you met and not sure what kind account in this issue.

Thank you very much. Using TFSReports was exactly what I needed to know.
