View Team Foundation Server Services

On a server for Team Foundation, you can view the services that Visual Studio Team Foundation Server uses and the Web Service application pools that Team Foundation Server installs. Team Foundation Server includes many services that run on the application tier. Your actual services will vary based on which features of Team Foundation you have installed.

Note Note

In a single-server deployment, you log on to the application-tier server to view all services and application pools. In a deployment that has more than one server, you must log on to the appropriate server that hosts the specific service or application for Team Foundation Server.

Required Permissions

To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Team Foundation Administrators group and a member of the Administrators group on the server on which the administration console is installed. For more information about permissions, see Team Foundation Server Permissions.
