Hi

Over the last month or so I've been trying to move our TFS from one W2K3 domain to a different one. Having followed the guides I always have problems and I think I know where these problems stem from but I don't know how to fix them.

One of the first steps in moving domains after stopping the TFS services is to join the new domain. It is here I think the problems start.

Once I have joined the new domain, I can no longer look at any TFS database properties in Sql management studio, I get an SMO error, saying the owner property is missing.

Before moving domains I have noted that the database properties say the owner is <originalDomain>\TFSSETUP. Now, when I move domains this owner is no longer valid.

Have I done something wrong in the initial installation steps of TFS

Has anyone managed to move domains successfully

Thanks for your help

Hi Matt,

sorry, no, this is no longer an issue. I managed to get the server on to the new machine and domain by more following the instructions for moving a TFS from one machine to a new machine in the same domain (if that makes sense).

Regards
