TFS 2010 and Lab Management on seperate domains? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I had a deployment of TFS 2010 (reporting/build automation, etc), which worked perfectly but died (domain controller failure). Anyway, I intend to deploy TFS 2010 on a server with Hyper-V (the role in Windows Server). The parent partition will also be a domain controller.

    On another server, I will setup lab management and make this another domain. However, is there any issue in having TFS 2010 and lab management on seperate domains?

    Thanks

  • I wasn't quite ready to give up because this was the configuration that my client was wanting to implement. I researched this some more and for a short time had some hope because I saw that SCVMM supports having hosts in other non-trusted domains with perimeter networks. However I found that Lab Management doesn't support hosts on a perimeter network.

    Host is part of a non-trusted domain, a host cluster, or is on a perimeter network

    To resolve these errors, you must make sure that the host is part of a trusted domain, is not part of a host cluster, and is not on a perimeter network. Lab Management does not support hosts that are in non-trusted domains, or are configured as part of a host cluster, or resides on a perimeter network.

  • Hi GSS1,

     

    Thanks for your post.

     

    I think these two domains must have the trust relationship if you want to configure TFS 2010 Server and Lab Management in different domains. But I suggest you to setup them in the same domain, for configuring Lab Management, please refer to: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd380687.aspx.

     

    If you occurred any issue during configuring Lab Management in the future, please post it here, we will discuss with you and try to resolve it.

  • Hi,

    I was looking for this answer too. Mostly I was trying to find something in writing to confirm my suspicions that this probably isn't supported. I found this blog post below. So, like John mentions, this will only work if the the two domains are fully trusted. Unfortunately in my scenario, there is no trust between the two domains.

    Do you have a trust between the domains?

     

    3) Lab Environments joined to different domain

    I would like to emphasize again that, in Visual studio 2010 Lab Management release we require TFS (AT/DT), VMM server, VMM host, VMM library, Test Controller and Build controller all be in same trusted domain. Visual Sutdio 2010 Lab Management do not support any of them being in a partially trusted or in no trust domains.

    However, you can have your Lab environments created and joined to a different domain.

    I hope this helps,

    Mike

  • Hi,

    I can setup full trust between both domains, that's not a problem. So I guess thatll work then?
