Unable to Configure TFS 2012 Proxy Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • I configured new TFS 2012 Server: ServerA, on Hyper-V with two collections successfully migrated and upgraded from TFS 2010. This server is at a different geographical location.

    Installed TFS 2012 for proxy server: ServerB, also on Hyper-V at a local geographical location.

    Both Servers are Win2008 R2 with MSSQL 2012 Ent.

    ServerA is configured correctly and I am able to access collections through Web and Team Explorer, even from ServerB. But when I try to configure Proxy by selecting the collections from ServerA, it ends up at the bellow screen.

    Currently I have these rights; Local Admin on both servers, Admin Console User at ServerA, Team Foundation Administrator on ServerA and Project Collection Administrator on ServerA.

    

     Please guide me if I am doing something wrong.

  • The issue is resolved by repeating the installation and migration processes.

    I don't know what was the cause.

    Thanks Cathy for your support.

  • Hi NavaidAlam,

    Thanks for your post!

    Please check if the System Requirements for Team Foundation Server Proxy are meet:

    You can install Team Foundation Server Proxy on a server that is running one of the following server operating systems:

    • 64-bit versions of Windows Server 2008 with SP2 (Standard or Enterprise Edition)
    • 64-bit versions of Windows Server 2008 R2 (Standard or Enterprise Edition)
    • 64-bit versions of Windows Server 2012

    In addition, please note, Team Foundation Server Proxy does not support the Server Core installation
    option, please check it.

    Hope it helps!

    Best Regards,

  • Hi Navaid,

    Thanks for your feedback!

    I recommend you follow the steps in the following link about How to: Install Team Foundation Proxy and Set Up a Remote Site:

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee248710.aspx

    In addition, please check the proxy configuration file, please check the <Servers></Servers> section and see if the collection is cofigured correctly or not.

    Team Foundation Server Proxy has an XML configuration file that maintains information that is required for the proxy configuration. This topic describes the nodes in this file and their effect on the configuration of Team Foundation Server Proxy.

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms400679(v=vs.110).aspx

    Hope it helps!

  • Thanks for the reply,

    I have setup the server according to the instructions provided at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/vstudio/jj620930.aspx which seems right.

    But unable to connect to the collection while configuring proxy.

    The proxy configuration file is not present, may be because it is not configured.
