Azure DevOps Server 2019 Install Guide

Hey All —

I just published my Azure DevOps Server 2019 Installation Guide.

You may or may not have heard this already but Team Foundation Server (TFS) has been renamed to Azure DevOps Server. This guide continues the tradition going back to 2009 of publishing installation guides for each new version of TFS.

Here’s the list of chapters the Azure DevOps Server 2019 guide:

  1. Install Windows Server 2019
  2. Install SQL Server 2017 for Azure DevOps Server
  3. Install Azure DevOps Server 2019
  4. Configure an SMTP Server for Azure DevOps Server 2019
  5. Install the Azure DevOps Build & Release Agent on Windows Server

If you’re looking for a Team Foundation Server (TFS) install guide, here are the links:

Once again, here’s a link to the new Azure DevOps Server 2019 install guide.

I hope you get some use out of this. Enjoy!
