Unable to Create Team Projects On a Fresh Install of TFS 2008 SP1 on IIS7; TF201072
I’ve just installed TFS 2008 SP1 (slipstreamed) and could connect to my new server however could not create team projects. Having run the BPA and it come back clean I was a little baffled until I stumbled upon the IIS role and spotted the “HTTP Redirection” was not installed. Installed this and project creation now successful.
For those searching for this issue I’ve included the exception below in the hope that search engines will index it:
Event Description: TF30207: Initialization for plugin "Microsoft.ProjectCreationWizard.WorkItemTracking" failed
Exception Type: Microsoft.TeamFoundation.WorkItemTracking.Client.ImportWorkitemTypeException
Exception Message: TF201072: A user or group could not be found. Verify that the users and groups used in your work item type definition have been added to Team Foundation Server.
Yet again, if step 3 fails it’s because I missed step 2. I should’ve double checked this when installing IIS, I guess overconfidence leads to mistakes!
Hope this helps,
