How to configure a search server for SharePoint 2010

If you would like to be able to search your TFS Project Portal you must enable a Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Search Service.  This process is for SharePoint 2010 that is installed by TFS during the configuration.

  • Open a command prompt and change to the following directory:
    • C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\BIN
  • Run the following command:
    • psconfig.exe -cmd services –install
    • NOTE: This command will take down our TFS while it runs.
  • Open SharePoint 2010 Central Administration
  • Click Manage services on server under the System Settings section
  • Click the Start link next to SharePoint Foundation Search
  • You will be sent to the Configure Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Search Service Settings on server [serverName]
  • Simply scroll down and click the Start button
