regenerating a TFS server’s guid

in order to clone TFS server and still be able to connect to both the existing and cloned server afterwards from the same client, you must regenerate the Project Collection’s identity guid.  This can be done with TFSConfig ChangeServerID.  after this you must update the guid on the AT’s web.config.

if you have already connected to the cloned server before regenerating the guid and wish to switch back to the original server, you must delete the client cache or you will receive a HTTP 404 error.
