How to: Add the Service Account for Team Foundation Server to the Farm Administrators Group

You must add the service account for Visual Studio Team Foundation Server (TFSSERVICE) to the Farm Administrators group on the SharePoint Products site. If you are using Network Service for TFSSERVICE and SharePoint Products is not running on the same server as Team Foundation Server, you must add the computer name of the server that is running Team Foundation Server instead of Network Service. The computer name required is the server name followed by the $ symbol (for example, Domain\ServerName$).

If you are the network administrator for SharePoint Products and you are collaborating with the administrator for Team Foundation Server, you can find the account name that is used for TFSSERVICE on the printed copy of the worksheet that the administrator for Team Foundation Server may have handed off to you. For more information, see Worksheet: Team Foundation Server and SharePoint Products Collaboration.

For more information about service accounts, see Accounts Required for Installation of Team Foundation Components.

Required Permissions

To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Administrators security group on the server that is running SharePoint Products.
