Update TFS proxy account (small bug)

A few weeks ago I ran into a small bug when updating the TFS proxy account (domain account) via the TFS Administrator Console on the TFS 2012 proxy server.

Proxy1

Proxy2

So, the UI does not provide a way to immediately switch to another domain account. The bug has been reported to the TFS product team and a fix will be provided in the (near) future.

Here’s a possible workaround (until it gets fixed in the product):

  • Unconfigure proxy in TFS Administration Console
    • Select Root node in TFS Administration Console
    • Click on the “Remove Feature” link on the right
    • Choose “Team Foundation Server Proxy” and click “Remove”
  • Reconfigure proxy
    • Select “Proxy Server” node and “Configure installed features”
    • Run “Configure TFS Proxy” wizard

    Hello
    We too faced the same problem with TFS 2013 update 3. Looks like MS has not fixed this bug yet. But the error we got was different. The error was :
    “Object reference not set to an instance of an object”
    We used “TFSConfig.exe setup /uninstall :All” to uninstall the old TFS proxy configuration and reconfigured it all over again with the new service account.
