How can I create a Enterprise Resource Pool in Project Server 2010?

    Question

  • How can I create a new Enterprise Resource Pool in Project Server 2010 by using already existing project files from a previous version?

    Since I am using the VM "2010-4a Project Server 2010" provided by Microsoft, I see a Enterprise Resource Pool already. Nevertheless I need to create a new one, using my mpp-files with local resources now.

    Many thanks for any kind of help!

    There isn't an upgrade path from previous versions of Project 2010 server beta.  If you are using the demo VM, I would suggest going into the Server settings and deleting all the projects, resources, etc and then importing the projects one at a time.  The same with the resource pool. 

    Lot's of manual processes.

  • Hello Michael,

    thanks for your help!

    With "previous versions" I meant: project files from MS-Project 2000 and/or 2007.

    If I understand you right, there can only be one Enterprise Resource Pool on the Project Server 2010, right?

    So I have to delete all existing (demo) resources there and import my resources via my old project files (Add Resources -> Import to

    Enterprise Resource Pool).

    I'll give it a try...

     

    Thanks again!

    Tom
