Quick hit: Team Foundation Server security

Just a quick note to myself about security in TFS 2010…

How to grant permissions to use Reporting Server: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb630430.aspx (How to: Configure a Report Server for Local Administration on Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008)

Questions to ask:
