TFS & Virtual Machines


What to do if you need to roll back \ undo your virtualized client

Use the Force -  To get the server and workspace versions in sync again perform a get using the force option. 


If you are using Hyper-V a better solution is to put your workspace on a drive that is offline to the host OS (Windows 2008) but known to the Hyper-V machine.  You have to disassociate this offline drive from the Hyper-V machine before you do the rollback and re-attach afterwards.  This keeps the rollback from affecting the workspace drive, leaving your workspace files the same.
