TFS 2008 BETA 2 VPC’s expiring prematurely.

Jeff Beehler at Microsoft is letting folks know about an issue that they have identified in the TFS 2008 BETA 2 VPC’s that they had distributed where they are expiring prematurely on November the 1st. He is asking folks to get the word out to let them know that they need to backup their databases and get ready to migrate to a new VPC that they will ship in about a weeks time.

In order to do the preparation you need to follow this documentation on moving Team Foundation Server. If you don’t get this done then its going to be a little bit trickier I would imagine because you’ll need to get the new VPC, mount the old VPC as a D: drive and then copy the database files off, but in terms of recovery process – you are in uncharted territory as far as supported TFS documentation goes.
