TFSInfo Updated for TFS 2008

A few months ago I created a simple command line utility called TFSInfo that can be used to display various bits of information about a Team Foundation Server 2005 installation.  I have now updated this utility to work with TFS 2008 as well as TFS 2005.

 

You can see from the screen shot which information is displayed.  In case you can't see the image, the following information is displayed by TFSInfo:

  • AT server name
  • AT Version
  • AT Edition (e.g. Standard, Workgroup, or Trial)
  • DT server Name
  • DT Server Version (not available for TFS 2008)
  • SQL Server Version
  • Reporting Server URL
  • TFS Installation Date
  • TFS Product ID

You'll notice in the list above that the Data Tier schema version is not available for TFS 2008.  This is because the column that's used to determine the schema version in TFS 2005 does not exist in TFS 2008 (at least not in the same table).  I wasn't immediately able to locate a replacement column to retrieve the same information.  If I am able to determine how that information is stored (assuming it is) I will release an update.

The new version can be downloaded here.

NOTE: The Team Explorer Client 2005 or 2008 needs to be installed for TFSInfo to work.
