// Connect to Team Foundation Server
//     server is the name of the server that is running the Team Foundation application-tier. 
//     port is the port that Team Foundation uses. The default port is 8080. 
//     vdir is the virtual path to the Team Foundation application. The default path is tfs. 
Uri tfsUri = (args.Length < 1) ? 
new Uri("http://server:port/vdir") : new Uri(args[0]); 

// Connect to the server without impersonation
TfsConfigurationServer baseUserConnection = new TfsConfigurationServer(tfsUri);

// Get the identity management service
IIdentityManagementService ims = baseUserConnection.GetService<IIdentityManagementService>();

// Get the identity to impersonate
TeamFoundationIdentity identity = ims.ReadIdentity(IdentitySearchFactor.AccountName, @"DOMAIN\user",
   MembershipQuery.None, ReadIdentityOptions.None); 

// Connect using the impersonated identity
TfsConfigurationServer impersonatedConnection = new TfsConfigurationServer(tfsuri, 
   identity.Descriptor);
