Experiences upgrading our TFS2012RC to RTM

We have just completed the upgraded of our TFS2012 server from RC to RTM. All went smoothly, just a few comments worth mentioning

  • The install of TFS2012 (after the removal of the RC) required three reboots, 2 for C++ components and one for .NET 4.5. So  if seeing reboots don’t worry too much.
  • When running the upgrade wizard we got a verify warning over port 443 already being used (we had manually configured via IIS manager for our server to use 8080 and 443). We ignored this warning. However after the upgrade wizard had completed, with no errors, we found that the new web server could not start. Turns out it it had been left bound as HTTP to Port 443, so it was very confused. We just deleted this binding and re-added HTTP on 8080 and HTTPS on 433 with our wildcard certificate and it was fine. So in hindsight we should have headed the warning and removed our custom bindings.

So now off to the long job of upgrading build box, test controller and the rest.
