Hi, I've just setup Microsoft Lab Management for our TFS Team collection and I'm a bit confused on how it's connected. If you open Microsoft Test Manager 2013 you have to connect to a specific team project, not the whole collection. After that you can connect to lab. Does that mean my virtual machines and environments will be linked to a team project and not to a whole team collection?

Hi DS_Kevin,

Yes, you are right. A lab environment is linked to a team project. Also, the virtual machines that used in that lab environment.

If we want to use the virtual machine that has the same configuration, we could store the virtual machine into the library, then deploy that library.


Best Regards
