How to add additional build agent on TFS 2017

    Question

  • Hello,

    We've a TFS 2017 server installed in a domain environment. The TFS 2017 build service is installed and configured on a separate server.

    We've created an "Agent pool" where we added the build server name as agent name.

    Question : How can we add some more build agents on the same server ? Any procedure ? 

    I highly appreciate your help.

    Thanks

    No special procedures.

    Just follow the standard procedures mentioned in this link : https://docs.microsoft.com/zh-cn/vsts/build-release/actions/agents/v2-windows#download-and-configure-the-agent

    1. Download the agent to a new location in the same machine
    2. Configure the agent

    Besides, this forum is about MSuild, if above not help you, you can submit this question with a new thread on stackoverflow with TFS tag.

    Hope this helps.
