Walkthrough: Install TFS2017 Build Agent on Windows and Ubuntu 16.04 Linux


I’ve updated my Team Foundation Server 2017 install guide to add new chapters for installing build servers. This new version (v1.1) now has a chapter for installing the TFS2017 build agent on Windows and a chapter for installing the build agent on Ubuntu Linux 16.04.

If you’re interested in installing TFS, here’s my TFS2017 install guide.  The guide is now up to 118 pages of step-by-step instructions with screenshots on how to set up Windows Server 2016, SQL Server 2016, Team Foundation Server 2017, SMTP email configuration for TFS, and now TFS Build/Release Agents.

Here’s that link again.
