Configuring SharePoint 2013 with Team Foundation Server 2013

I recently had a requirement to set up a SharePoint 2013 Server AFTER I had already set up and installed my Team Foundation Server 2013 installation.  Normally, I have been using the built-in installation capabilities of installing SharePoint Foundation 2013 as part of the TFS installation and have not messed with setting up a separate instance of SharePoint 2013 to integrate with TFS 2013 on a completely different server, so this was a new experience to say the least.

Of course, I used AutoSPInstaller ( to install SharePoint 2013 for me, so many of the manual steps for setting up my SharePoint installation were already taken care of for me. 

I then followed the steps for installing the TFS Extensions on my SharePoint installation:

After doing this, I was ready to go into my TFS Server and complete all of the remaining integration points to get my SharePoint installation up and running with all of the necessary TFS features!
