Access Denied Starting Project Server Application Service RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was doing an on-premise installation of the Project Server 2013. After successful installation of the Project Server binaries and running of the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard, I tried to start the Project Server Application Service from Central Administration -> System Settings -> Manage services on server. After seeing Working on it for a while, the system returns Access Denied and the service could not be started.

    The SharePoint log shows a few error messages:

    - An attempt to start/stop instance of service Project Server Application Service on server did not succeed. Re-run the action via UI or command line on the specific server.

    - Cannot start service ProjectQueueService15 on computer .....System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception: Access is denied

    - Application error when access /_admin/Server.aspx, Error=Access is denied.

    Could someone help?

  • Which Account are you using? Does that Account have FARM Admin privileges ? Its always better to have things sorted with Farm privileges and later on assign less privileged accounts for running them.

  • Yes the account is having Farm Administrator privileges.

  • Try removing the service and recreating it again.
