VSS Upgrade / Migration Wizard RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am looking to test the VSS Migration Wizard from a VSS database with many projects.  When I run the wizard, it asks me to select a project.  It appears that I can only convert 1 project at a time?  is there a way to spin the entire VSS database in one shot?

    TIA

  • In this case, TFS Team project is the target, and we can only specify one team project. All VSS project will be ported to the single team project. Each of them gets created a new folder in source control.

    Since you have hundreds of projects in VSS, you can create multiple TFS team projects as necessary.  Remember, in each run, you can only port to one team project.

    Does that sound clear?

  • Yes, I assume you upgrade VSS to TFS 2012, in this case we can select all projects in one database at one time. If you could not get to it, please share a screenshot.

  • I can select all the projects, but then on the next step, "team project" it only lets me select 1 project.

    If we use your screenshot for example,

    $/databaseProject -> should be able to upgrade to a Team Project called $/databaseProject

    $/vssproject1 -> should be able to upgrade to a Team Project called $/vssproject1

    and so on...

    Our developers have hundreds of projects in the database.  Do they need to be created in TFS before the upgrade???

    Or am I just not understanding the software?  I am not an end user of VSS or TFS, I work with SharePoint.

    I appreciate your help on this.
