Configure Team Foundation Server Extensions for SharePoint Products

If SharePoint Products is not on the server that is running Team Foundation Server, you have a remote portal. If you have a remote portal, you must install and configure the Team Foundation Server extensions for SharePoint Products on the remote portal.

If you have multiple servers in a web farm, you must install and configure the extensions on every server in the farm. After you install the extensions, you must perform this configuration procedure on each server. An error message might appear during configuration asking you to verify that the extensions have been installed on every server in the farm. You can safely ignore this error. After the extensions have been installed and configured on every server, this error stops.

TipTip

You can access the Team Foundation Server Configuration tool from the Start menu by launching Team Foundation Server Administration Console, choosing Application Tier, and then choosing Configure Installed Features.

Required Permissions

To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Farm administrators group on the SharePoint Products administration site.
