TF254006 on Application Tier 2

Posted on November 3, 2012


You can stop searching forums if you’re stuck on this error after successfully installing your first Application Tier (AT): when rushing through an installation today, I forgot to specify a domain account for TFS itself – I left the default NETWORK SERVICE during the Configuration Wizard of the first AT.

In the Application Tier Only wizard on the second AT, it prompted with “TF254006: No usable accounts are present in your configuration database.  Use TfsConfig accounts /add to add and account and return to this wizard.”

What it really means: go back to the first AT and change the service account to a domain account.
