TFS Virtual Machines

I often get asked about the Virtual Machine that I use for my TFS presentations.  I use the VM created by Brian Keller and it can be found here: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/briankel/archive/2011/09/16/visual-studio-11-application-lifecycle-management-virtual-machine-and-hands-on-labs-demo-scripts.aspx

This virtual machine is configured with:

  • Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard Edition
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2
  • Microsoft Visual Studio Ultimate 2012 Update 1
  • Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2012 Update 1
  • Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2010
  • Microsoft Project 2010
  • Microsoft Office Professional 2010 (Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook)
  • Sample users and data required to support hands-on-lab scripts which accompany this download and exercise 21 ALM scenarios, including 8 new capabilities from Visual Studio 2012 and 12 capabilities which were originally introduced in the Visual Studio 2010 release.

It also comes with over 20 hands-on-labs that help you learn all about the different features of Visual Studio ALM.  He keeps it up to date with the latest updates (currently Update 1) so I’d expect Update 2 in the coming months.

A few days ago, he also released a new VM that contains SCOM integration: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/briankel/archive/2013/02/07/team-foundation-server-2012-and-system-center-2012-operations-manager-integration-virtual-machine-and-hands-on-lab-demo-script.aspx

Download them and enjoy!
