TF03177: Team Project Creation Failed

Or TF30004: The New Team Project Wizard encountered an unexpected error while initializing the Microsoft.ProjectCreationWizard.Reporting plug-in..

And TF30171: The Microsoft.ProjectCreationWizard.Reporting plug-in used to create the new team project could not be initialized and returned the following error: TF30224: Failed to retrieve projects from the report server. Please check that the SQL Server Reporting Services Web and Windows services are running and you have sufficient privileges for creating a project.. [sic]

Team Project Creation Failed

I ran into this problem with TFS recently and it had me stumped. Why could I no longer create projects? My TFS server had been ticking away unchanged for sometime. I hadn't touched the security settings... why would it suddenly stop working?

Turns out I had rebuilt my machine since I last added a project to TFS (everything else in TFS was still working swimmingly) so where had I gone wrong.

In my haste to get my build up and running I was in the habit of installing Visual Studio 2008 SP1 early on - and I only ever got round to installing Team Explorer when I needed it, usually a couple of days later. And this is where I was going wrong, you have to reinstall Visual Studio 2008 SP1 after installing Team Explorer or you'll get this issue.

Baffling but I'm relieved to have solved it. To help others who are searching for this issue I'll include the full log below:

Hi
I was facing the same issue and tried all the things mention here and on other side but non worked for me.
people Please help other in solving this issue.
My issue got resolved by looking into below url

It is quite easy to re-create them by following these steps:
- browse to http://<ApplicationTierName>/reports
- Click on New DataSource and fill up the information

- For TfsOlapReportDS:
- Connection type: Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services
- Connection String: Data source=DataTierMachineNameGoesHere;initial catalog=TFSWarehouse
- Credentials: Use "Credentials stored in the report server, specify your service account and its password and check the first check box: "Use as Windows credentials when connecting to the data source"

For TfsReportDS: Everything is the same except the Connection type which should be set to Microsoft SQL Server.

Also ensure that they are named exactly as specified above as these are the names used to reference them in the reports.

Thanks,
Krishna
