One or more of the following error messages appears if the tool cannot retrieve the requested information or if the tool determines that the user's permissions are not sufficient to create a team project:

  • Web service call failures:

    • ReportService Web service experienced a call failure

    • SharePoint Products Web service experienced a call failure

    • Team Foundation Server {0} Web service could not be accessed

    • Team Foundation Server CommonStructureService Web service experienced a call failure

    • Team Foundation Server ProcessTemplate Web service experienced a call failure

    To resolve a Web service call failure, perform the recommended actions that A Web service could not be called describes.

  • Insufficient permissions:


    The tool checks the permissions of the person who logged on before running the tool. To determine whether a user has sufficient permissions, the tool examines only direct membership of groups in SharePoint Products and SQL Server Reporting Services. The tool does not examine permissions for groups of which the user is a member.

    • User "{0}" is not part of the Site Administrators group for SharePoint Products

    • User "{0}"does not have Team Foundation Content Manager permissions

    • User does not have System Administrator permissions

    To resolve a permissions issue, see the following topic on the Microsoft Web site: Managing Permissions.
