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

You must add the service account for 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$.

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