Last Update: 2/7/2017

TFS 2017 | TFS 2015 | TFS 2013

If you choose to use an installation of SharePoint Products other than the one that was installed during Team Foundation Server installation, you should verify that your installation of SharePoint Products meets the following guidelines:

  • The administration site and default website are running, and other computers on the network can access them.

  • SharePoint uses NTLM, the recommended authentication. (Basic authentication is not supported by Team Foundation Server extensions for SharePoint Products.)

  • If you are using a supported enterprise edition of SharePoint Server, you must configure settings for dashboard compatibility.

Required Permissions

To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Administrators security group on the server that is running SharePoint.

To verify that the administration site and default website are running and that other computers on the network can access them

  1. On the server that is running SharePoint, choose Start, Run, enter inetmgr, and then choose OK.

    Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager appears.

  2. In Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager, open ServerName (local computer).

    ServerName is the name of the web server.

  3. Choose Sites, and then choose the default website.

  4. On the Actions pane, choose Browse :80 (http).

    The default website appears in the default browser.

  5. Choose the SharePoint Central Administration site.

    On the Actions pane, choose Browse :Port (http).

    Port is the number of the port that is bound to the SharePoint Central Administration site.

    The SharePoint Central Administration site appears in the default browser.

  1. In a web browser, open the SharePoint Central Administration site, and choose the Security.

  2. Under General Security, choose Specify authentication providers.

  3. In the Zone column, choose Default.

  4. In Claims Authentication Types, make sure that check boxes for Enable Windows Authentication, Integrated Windows authentication, and NTLM are selected.

Note:
You should check that the authentication setting that appears in the SharePoint Central Administration site matches the authentication setting that appears in IIS.
