After using the TFSAdminUtil.exe to point TFS Beta 2 to an existing WSS 3.0 farm.  TFS do not use the path set correctly if the path is anything other than /sites.

For example

TFS works correctly if SharepointSitesUri is set to http://somewssserver/sites, but does not work correctly when set to http://somewssserver/development/sites

We want to use an existing Sharepoint farm within the organisation and the path made available for use is http://wssserver/development/sites.

We think this url problem is also causing project creation to fail when configured to anything other than /sites for SharepointSitesUri

It is a managed path per TFS server, we just want the starting path to be 2 levels deep. So if it is by design to support only a single level managed path. Should make it more obvious and stop people from specifying a a managed path which is not just off the root.

In TFS 2008 You have to use managed paths per TFS server. Create managed path "Development" and set URI. More Info:
