VS 2008 TFS TF30177 Error      
  11/19/2009 6:33:42 PM

Recently, I setup a VS 2008 TFS, mainly to be used as a source control vault.  Things have been working.  The problem came when I tried to create a new project.

I got a TF30177 error.  When searched around, I got many posts about installing SP1.  That didn't work for me.

Here is the problem I ran into.

When I installed the TFS, I named my SharePoint the same name as the hostname.  Let's call that VS2008.  After getting it setup, I decided to also use it as a SharePoint portal for team file sharing.  As a result, I changed the URL for the SharePoint to a FQDN.  Let's call that sharepoint.mydomain.com.

When I connect to the TFS from VS2008 Team Explorer, regardless of which URL I connect to, I cannot add a new project.  The problem I believe is either way I connect, I had a permission problem trying to add a TFS project to sharepoint.mydomain.com.  After poking around, I the resolution I got working was to create an alternate accesspoint for the SharePoint.

To do this, login to the Central Admin page of the sharepoint server.  Typically, it's http://vs2008:17012, with vs2008 being the hostname of the server.  From there go to Operations.  Select Alternat Access Mappings.  Create an alternate access mapping http://vs2008 for http://sharepoint.mydomain.com.

That's all.  Once that's created, creating the new TFS project went through with no errors.
