I have installed Visual Studio Ultimate in my system. I wanted to configure TFS in my system as the feature is given. So how do I configure my TFS server without using any other system? I wish to add some of my hard disk space as server for TFS, is it possible? Can I use localhost (IIS) as server for TFS? Well I tried for localhost, but its giving error as URL or server name is invalid. I have started using TFS few weeks back in office, and have not used any source control software before this. Some people on StackOverflow suggested me to type my system name there, but I ended up with no luck even though i am running the visual studio as admin.
I clicked 'Connect to Team Server foundation' in 'Team' menu. Clicked on Server button beside combobox. Typed myPCname/localhost and both ended up with error.
Error: Unable to connect to server.
Technical error: Unable to connect to Remote server.
There is huge message between these 2 error lines.

It looks to me that you are trying to use a local TFS server.
From what you have described I did not get anywhere that you have also installed TFS locally on your machine where you have also Visual Studio Ultimate running?
You can find the installation manual here: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=24337

Thank you for your post.
According to your description of the issue, it seems you have not installed TFS. VS Ultimate and TFS are different applications. If you want to use TFS, you need to install it. VS Ultimate does contain TFS, just contain Team Explorer.
If you have TFS installation application, about how to install it, you can refer to TFS installation guide.
If anything is unclear, please free feel to let me know.
