Update TFS proxy account (small bug)

July 8, 2013

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
