How to: Configure Cache Security for Team Foundation Server Proxy

As a Team Foundation Server administrator, you must add a Team Foundation Server Proxy service account and specify a password to maintain security for the Team Foundation Server Proxy.

NoteNote

By default, you created this account and password when you installed Team Foundation Server Proxy. For more information about how to install Team Foundation Server Proxy and user accounts required for Team Foundation Server setup, see the Team Foundation Installation Guide. For more information, visit the Team System Documentation Directory (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=62213).

If you must change the proxy service account or password, you can use IIS Manager or the proxy installation wizard to make the changes.

Required Permissions

To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Administrators security group on the Team Foundation Server Proxy computer.

To add a Team Foundation Server Proxy service account using IIS Manager

  1. Make sure that the new proxy service account is a member of the Team Foundation Valid Users group.

    For more information, see Team Foundation Server Permissions.

  3. In the left pane, expand Computer Management (Local), System Tools, Local Users and Groups, and then click Groups.
