Updating computer name in tfs workspaces
Why TFS still shows "wrongowner#test.com" in workspace although there is new email registered as "realowner#test.com"? Click the blue computer icon to Update Workspace Computer Name and you're done. I've tried what the prompt told me : Like so : tf workspaces /update Computer Name: My Old Computer Name but I got back : The /collection option must be specified whenever /update Computer Name or /update User Name is specified.In order to get the collection name I ran : tf workspaces which listed my collections and I got the name of my collection (...myusername...) Then I ran : tf workspaces /collection: Computer Name: My Old Computer Name Didn't work as I got this: TF31002: Unable to connect to this Team Foundation Server: tudio.com/defaultcollection. Possible reasons for failure include: - The name, port number, or protocol for the Team Foundation Server is incorrect - The Team Foundation Server is offline. Technical information (for administrator): The remote server returned an error: (404) Not Found.Then I noticed that I've typed http instead of https, corrected, retried and it worked!Look at this link Vaccano said : This command did the trick: tf workspaces /update Computer Name: My Old Computer Name /s:" Server:8080/tfs/My Collection" It had to be run from the computer I wanted to assign the workspace to (that is how it gets the new computer name.When I type: tf workspaces /computer: ABOTONJIC-PC /owner:* /format:detailed Workspace : ABOTONJIC-PC Owner : wrongowner#Computer : ABOTONJIC-PC Comment : Collection : netuse.visualstudio.com\Default Collection Permissions: Private Location : Local File Time : Current But I need to have : Owner : realowner#Computer : NEW-PC Then I try: tf workspaces /update Computer Name: ABOTONJIC-PC /collection:netuse.visualstudio.com/Default Collection No workspace matching *;wrongowner#on computer NEW-PC found in Team Foundation Server netuse.visualstudio.com/Default Collection.So my question are : How to update computer name in my workspace? Open the Workspace Sidekick, click Search, and select your workspace from the list.
This is done completely server side, you don't have to have access to your old computer.
