It is important to get another developer to check the migration for issues.

They should follow these steps:

a.      Start Visual Studio 2013

b.     Open Team Explorer and connect to the new TFS Server

c.      Confirm that they can:

 .                Source Code - Browse the projects and code using the Source Code Explorer

a.               Source Code Operations - Get Latest on a file, make a change and check in

b.              Source Code History - View the history of a number of files in different projects

c.               Work Items - Browse and view recent work items

d.     Open Visual Studio 2015 and repeat steps 1 to 3.

e.      Test that your builds complete successfully on the upgraded build controller(s) and agent(s).

f.       Check that they can create a new Team Project in Visual Studio 2015

Congratulations! You've completed a successful migration!
