TF30171: The Microsoft.ProjectCreationWizard.Portal plug-in used to create the new team project could not be initialized and returned the following error: TF30270: Project site folder “ProjectName” already exists.User Action

by XDK 4. August 2013 12:16

Explanation:

I was not able to create a new team project due to the following exception even though the site with the new team project name does not exist in share point.

Module: Initializer
Event Description: TF30207: Initialization for plugin “Microsoft.ProjectCreationWizard.Portal” failed
Exception Type: Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Client.PcwException
Exception Message: TF30270: Project site folder “ProjectName” already exists
Stack Trace:
at Microsoft.VisualStudio.TeamFoundation.WssSiteCreator.Initialize(ProjectCreationContext context)
at Microsoft.VisualStudio.TeamFoundation.EngineStarter.InitializePlugins(MsfTemplate template, PcwPluginCollection pluginCollection)

Solution:

Exception message misguided me. The real problem was with the Share Point connectivity. I was not able to connect to Share Point server using the server name but IP worked. I changed the Share Point sever name to IP in TFS administration console which fixed the issue.
