Prerequisites

As a best practice, you should import the Windows Server Management Pack for the operating system you are using. The Windows Server Management Packs monitor aspects of the operating system that influence the performance of computers running SQL Server, such as disk capacity, disk performance, memory utilization, network adapter utilization, and processor performance. We also recommend the SQL Server and Internet Information Services (IIS) Management Packs. The Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2017 Management Pack for System Center does not require any additional Management Packs that are not part of the standard Systems Center Operations Manager installation.

Due to the security model that Team Foundation Server 2017 uses, the monitoring account will need to be a member of the [TEAM FOUNDATION]\Team Foundation Administrators group. This enables the management pack to discover and monitor new Team Project Collections as they are added to the configuration without requiring additional incremental security configuration. The detailed setup instructions located in Appendix A of this document outline the creation of the required monitoring account as well as required security privileges.

Mandatory Configuration

For general information about importing a management pack, see How to Import a Management Pack in Operations Manager.

By default the .MSI installer will place the management pack files in the “%ProgramFiles(x86)%\System Center Management Packs\Team Foundation Server 2017 MP” directory unless the install location is modified during the install.
