Logo Microsoft Visual StudioMicrosoft has published a Hyper-V Virtual Machine that lets you evaluate the current TFS to Project Server 2010 Integration tools.

This virtual machine includes enterprise project plans in Project Server mapped to team projects in Team Foundation Server, along with sample data to highlight key integration scenarios. The walkthrough documents provide four scenarios that simulate the interactions between the project manager, working in Project Server, and the software development team, working in Team Foundation Server.”

The team is looking for your feedback on this and have a Team Foundation Server and Project Server Integration Forum on MSDN for ideas, problems, discussions, etc.
