Known Issues

TFS Database Import Service does not support RC releases

The TFS Database Import Service for Visual Studio Team Services doesn’t support imports from RC releases of TFS. If you’re planning on importing your collection database to Team Services using this service, it’s important that you don’t upgrade your production database to this RC release. If you do upgrade, then you will need to wait and upgrade to the RTW version of this release or restore a backup copy of your database from a previous TFS version to import.
