The information in this article applies to:

  • Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2010

  • Application-tier server

  • Team Foundation Server Complete Health Check

  • Team Foundation Server Framework Health Check

  • SharePoint Products Health Check

The Best Practices Analyzer tool for Team Foundation Server scans the configuration of the administration site for SharePoint Products when the tool determines that SharePoint Products has been installed. The tool logs the information that it gathers in the tree report under the Web Sites node. You can locate this node by expanding Team Foundation Server Complete Health Check, expanding SharePoint Web Applications, expanding Web Sites, and then expanding the named Web site.

The following error message appears when the tool determines that basic authentication is enabled and NTLM authentication is not enabled for authentication providers for SharePoint Products.

  • Windows Integrated Authentication is disabled

You must use NTLM authentication when you integrate SharePoint Products with Team Foundation Server. NTLM authentication is required to support Windows Integrated Authentication.

You must enable Windows Integrated Authentication to resolve this error and integrate Team Foundation Server with SharePoint Products.
