TfsBuildService.exe.config File Settings in Team Foundation Server Components

This topic describes the configurable settings in the TfsBuildService.exe.config file. This file is located in <drive>:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE\PrivateAssemblies on the Team Foundation application-tier server.

TfsServerScheduler.exe.config Settings

Setting Description


This setting specifies the numeric value that represents the port that is used by the Team Foundation Server application tier to connect to the Team Foundation Build computer. This value must be the same as the value in the Build Web.Config File in the <root>:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Team Foundation Server\Web Services\Build folder of the Team Foundation Server application tier.

For example, value = "9191"


This setting specifies the Team Foundation Server application tier that can connect to the Team Foundation Build computer.


As part of the build process, access controls are set in the build directory to help secure it against unauthorized access. By default, only NTFS partitions are allowed because FAT partitions do not support access controls. To override this to build on FAT partitions, set this value to true.


Set this flag to true if you want to use the build type definition that exists on the local computer instead of downloading the definition from Team Foundation Server. The local path used is the local workspace for the build type.
