Scrum for Team System v3 - SharePoint 2010 Portal

In this post I will tell you how to add a SharePoint 2010 compatible solution to your Scrum for Team System version 3 Team Foundation Server setup.

The current SfTS v3 installer (version 3.0.3784.03) does not support SharePoint 2010 environments. The installer simply skips the SharePoint portion of the process. When attempting to create a new SfTS v3 project [that includes a project portal], SP 2010 users suffer a project creation failure. The project creation log file contains an error message like:

“TF249033: The site template is not available for the locale identifier (LCID).”
”The site template name is: SCRUM.”



To correct this error condition, follow the below steps.


  1. Download the SharePoint 2010 solution zip.


  2. Extract the zipped “ScrumForTeamSystem.SharePoint.Dashboards.wsp” file to a working folder.

  3. Deploy the solution to your SharePoint instance by executing the following PowerShell script:

    Add-SPSolution -Filename "scrumforteamsystem.sharepoint.dashboards.wsp"
    Install-SPSolution scrumforteamsystem.sharepoint.dashboards.wsp
    -GACDeployment –AllWebApplications

Hi Crispin,

thanks for this post and the attached zip, the manual installation of sharepoint site template worked fine.

Let me just specify that, in the second line of the powershell script, the parameter for the file name in Add-SPSolution is called "LiteralPath", and not "Filename".

Hi Crispin;

Thanks for this update - just what I was looking for!  To add to Allesandro's point above, I'd also add that you may want to ensure that you execute your PowerShell command outside the working folder to preserve your sanity (LiteralPath is not nearly as forgiving as STSADM's Filename), eg:

Working Folder:


Execute @ C:\

Add-SPSolution -LiteralPath "C:\STSInstall\ScrumForTeamSystem.SharePoint.Dashboards.wsp"

Works... pretty cool that on our SP farm I only had to run these commands on one box.

The Sharepoint 2010 .wsp you have provided causes a number of issues (as found by Richard Fennel in http://blogs.blackmarble.co.uk/blogs/rfennell/archive/2011/05/04/problems-and-workaround-for-the-emc-scrum-for-team-system-process-template.aspx?CommentPosted=true#commentmessage).

I've opened it up in VS2010 and given it a complete makeover to fit in with the Microsoft process templates while fixing all of the broken links and minor issues.  You can find the fixed .wsp at http://www.thecontrarycat.com/2011/07/scrum-for-team-system-v3-and-sharepoint-2010/

Feel free to take this work and include it in the SFTS distribution.

The SBOK guide of <a href="http://www.scrumstudy.com/index.asp">Scrum will actually show how Scrum can be a very useful tool to keep organized and create better goals for your team. If all goes well, your team will gain a lot more focus and work more efficiently.

More and more companies are trying to get nimble to enable them to respond to change with agility. Over the years, there has been a clear shift in momentum about the ways how companies manage projects. So, the project manager should be a PMP certified, who can better handle the planning, execution, and closing of any project. To get yourself prepared for PMP Certification, http://www.pmstudy.com is the best source.
