The port assignment does not match the default configuration

The information in this article applies to:

  • Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2010

  • Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008 

  • SQL Server 2008

  • Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007

  • Servers that host the application tier and SharePoint Products

  • Team Foundation Server Complete Health check

The Best Practices Analyzer tool for Team Foundation Server queries the metabase for Internet Information Services (IIS) to determine the port assignments for the Web sites on which Team Foundation relies.

A warning appears if the port assignments do not match the following default assignments.

Web site

Port

Default Web Site

80

Team Foundation Server 

8080

NoteNote

You do not need to resolve this issue. Before you make any changes, you should determine why the assignments changed. Organizations frequently change port assignments to match their infrastructure requirements or security policies.

To resolve the issue, log on to the application-tier server, and change the port assignment to the one that the warning specifies.
