Though MSDN has useful guidance on project server integration, but the book summarises the License & CAL specifications, Authentication Modes, Permission Management and management SQL scripts all in one place apart from the installation and set up steps making it easy for you to get to when required. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone looking for guidance on setting up and managing Team Foundation 2012 integration with Project Server 2010 without getting overloaded with too much information. In case you are interested, `Instant Team Foundation Server 2012 and Project Server 2010 Integration How-to' is a good value for money, available on PACKT and Amazon for purchase.
Happy Reading :-]
The exposition is clear and simple, a step by step guide, complete with precise directions, menu-checkbox-fields to select / click for the entire procedure.
There is also a section on the configuration of permissions and security for users, service account, and access to the database, which in fact is reported as "Must Know".
A small note: I would have expected a troubleshooting section, even not complete;
all the infos in this book help us in reducing error probabilities, but it might be helpfull any hint so reader could debug & find solution.
In summary, it keeps what promised in the title;
5 stars only with the section of the troubleshooting.
The form of this book makes it very suitable for both anyone who are doing this the first time, making sure you don't miss any crucial step on your way. For those doing this again, it can also be used as a check list, to keep track of the different things you need to do.
I liked the form; it is very concise, with a minimum of extraneous chatter.
I you are planning to deploy TFS/PS integration, then I would recommend this as a good technical starting point.
