It is important to get another developer to check the migration for issues.

They should follow these steps:

  1. Start Visual Studio 2013
  2. Open Team Explorer and connect to the new TFS Server
  3. Confirm that they can:
  4. Source Code - Browse the projects and code using the Source Code Explorer
  5. Source Code Operations - Get Latest on a file, make a change and check in
  6. Source Code History - View the history of a number of files in different projects
  7. Work Items - Browse and view recent work items
  8. Open Visual Studio 2015 and repeat steps 1 to 3.
  9. Test that your builds complete successfully on the upgraded build controller(s) and agent(s).
  10. Check that they can create a new Team Project in Visual Studio 2015

Congratulations! You've completed a successful migration!
