I am preparing a machine for testing and demos. While I was busy installing my machine I was unable to start my build service anymore with the following error
Build Service received Stop command and will be stopped. Details: Error in starting TFSBuildServiceHost in Lab mode. ExceptionType:System.Exception. ExceptionMessage:The Hyper-V Data Exchange Service is not installed on the virtual machine.
My installation is a single server installation with everyhing installed on my laptop, being:
- Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate
- Team Foundation Server 2010
- Team Build 2010
- Lab Management 2010
- Test Agents
- Lab Agents
I found out that the Test and Lab agents should *not* be installed on the server. They should be installed on the vm’s that I build to be hosted in the Lab environment. More information on this you can find at http://blogs.msdn.com/b/lab_management/archive/2010/04/21/setting-up-agents-controllers-for-lab.aspx
So uninstalling the Test and Lab agents solved my issue.
