Which SharePoint Workspace to use!?

Apr 9, 2008 at 7:18 AM
Hello,

we have successfully married TFS Server 2008 and Project Server 2007 together. Thanks to everybody who worked on VSTS Connector V 2.0!

We have a SharePoint Serverfarm which acts as our document management system. In this farm all documents should be stored (let's call this farm Prio 1 in terms of document storage and document management).

We have:
- TFS Server who wants to create a SharePoint Site (=Workspace)
- Project Server who wants to create a SharePoint Site (=Workspace)
- SharePoint Site which should act as Prio 1 Site (all documents must be stored and managed here, other systems may connect to this site read-only in terms of documents). Workspace should propably exist before Project or TFS TeamProject may be created.

Questions:
Do you have any idea how we can get this to work?
Can i tell TFS Server or Project Server not to create a Site and use an existing one? If yes, how can this be done?

Does anybody have similar requirements to re-use an existing workspace from another Microsoft System?

We really appreciate any kind of help regarding this issue.

You can configure TFS to leverage your existing Sharepoint Server farm instead of using its own WSS 3.0. There's some documentation that the VSTS Rangers are working on that will speak more to this; however, I think there is also some documentation on msdn that also details how to leverage an existing SharePoint Farm for TFS. This is what you're trying to do, right?

Oh, and you're welcome :-)
