Stop and Start Services, Application Pools, and Websites

To ensure that Visual Studio Team Foundation Server functions correctly, you must verify that all required services, application pools, and Web sites are running on the appropriate server. In single-server deployments, each element must be running on the server that is running Team Foundation Server. In multiple-server deployments, each element must be running on the appropriate server. In addition, you might need to stop an element to perform a particular task, such as moving your deployment to a different set of hardware. For detailed information about how to start or stop all of these elements for operations such as backing up or restoring databases, see TFSServiceControl Command. For information about how to stop individual services or application pools, see the steps at the end of this topic.

Important noteImportant

You must use the TFSServiceControl command to perform certain maintenance tasks on the server, such as backing up and restoring databases. Do not use the steps at the end of this topic to attempt to manually stop all of the services and application pools for tasks that require the TFSServiceControl command.

The following table lists the server on which each service, application pool, and Web site must be running. The Name column lists the display name for each element with service names in parentheses. Which services you need will vary based on which features of Team Foundation you have installed.
