Re: TFS 2017 uninstalled itself after system updates RRS feed

  • Question

  • We upgraded on-premise TFS to TFS 2017 update 3 (product version: 15.117.27024.0) on a new Windows 2016 server on 9/21/2018.  It worked perfectly.

    On 10/10/2018 around 12:40am, a KB4462917 was installed on server. A new TFS product version, 15.117.27414.0, was installed around the same time. However, it didn't finish the mini-upgrade totally, and the TFS App Tier was removed. From the TFS log, I can see a command '/uninstall:ALL' was issued around the time. The result was that TFS website was removed and we cannot use TFS website. I had to configure installed feature at the app tier using TFS admin console.

    Does anybody know what's going on here?

    Thank you.

  • Hi Jian.Huang,

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

    Based on your description. It’s a TFS issue, since our forum focus on VS IDE issue. I recommend you to redirect the Stack Overflow forum, that a forum is supported by Microsoft TFS VSTS… engineers, you can start a new thread with “tfs” tag for a more professional support! Sorry for your inconvenience.

    Have a nice day!
