Migrate from English TFS 2015 to German TFS 2019?

    Question

  • Hello everybody,

    we have an English Windows Server 2012 running English SQL Server and English TFS 2015, and we would like to migrate to the current version of TFS 2019. Just because our WSUS has to load *every* update in German AND English just because we have one single English product here (that is, the TFS installation), our WsusContent will grow to 4.4 TB (Terabytes!). So we would like to cut that in half by migrating to a German TFS.

    Our TFS 2015 includes SharePoint Services, which we do not use. So we want to just migrate the source code and work items, but do not need to migrate SharePoint or the Analysis Services databases.

    Would it be a supported way if we: a) Install a German SQL Server 2017 instance, b) install a new German TFS 2019 (without SharePoint) on a new German Windows Server 2019 and c) just migrate our single one project collection database to that new installation, thereby upgrading from English to German? Thanks!


    Best Regards, Stefan Falk
