Administer Team Foundation Server

Administrators of an on-premises deployment of Visual Studio Team Foundation Server (TFS) install, configure, and maintain the deployment. They are tasked with supporting teams to have access to the resources to do their work. This includes managing permissions and access to servers, backing up and restoring data, and maintaining the security of the deployment.
