By default the maximum size is set to 50 MB. We simply need to increase the acceptable file size.

- On the Web Applications ribbon, click the down arrow on the General Settings button.
- Click General Settings.
- Scroll to Maximum Upload Size.

I created a team project and did not select the option to create a share point site and now I want to add one.
Create a dummy site and remove the link to sharepoint and wire it up to the original team project. Or two create a new site in SharePoint and wire it up.
There is a great write up here on how to do both options.

You have to install TFS2010 on an existing Sharepoint2010 install. How do I verify it is configured correctly?
I have been handed many preinstalled SharePoint 2010 machines to use with TFS installs or upgrades. The problem is there are many options that must be just right for it to work with TFS and confirming those settings can be very difficult if you don’t use SharePoint very often. For example the two I constantly have to verify are that the web application on port 80 has NTLM set for IIS Authentication and the Anonymous Access is disabled.
Here are the steps to confirm this information.
1. Open Central Administration
2. Click Manage web applications under the Application Management section
3. Select the desired Web Application
4. Click the Authentication Providers button
5. On the Authentication Providers Pop Up click the Default link
6. You can now edit the authentication settings and confirm that NTLM is selected and Anonymous Access is disabled.

I have to perform a migration many teams over to TFS and assign permissions to TFS, Report Server and SharePoint for dozens of Team Projects.
Use a batch file to set the permissions to all three locations at once.
TFSSecurity /g+ %1\Readers "[domain]\[user or group]" /collection:[tfs]\DefaultCollection
rs -i security.rss -s http://localhost/reportserver -v userName="[domain]\[user or group]" -v roleName="Browser" -v itemPath="/TfsReports/DefaultCollection/%1" -v keepCurrentPolicy="True"
stsadm -o adduser -url http://[tfs]/sites/DefaultCollection/%1/ -userlogin "[domain]\[user or group]" -role Contribute -username "Development Team" -useremail "developmentteam@[domain].com"
· %1 is a parameter to a batch file. The value passed into the batch file is the Team Project you want administer security over.
· All username or groups are in the domain\username format so replace [domain] with your domain and [user or group] with the username or group you wish to assign permissions too.
· [tfs] is the name of your TFS AT Server
Be sure that rs.exe, stsadm.exe and TFSSecurity.exe are on the machine you execute these commands from and are in the path. You must run the command prompt as Administer for the stsadm commands to succeed.
