PSError: GeneralActionCanceledBecauseServerEventServiceProblem (22002) in PS2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a customer working with monthly timesheets. For some resources, one person is entering actual work in usage view in Project Professional. When finished, this person is creating all timesheets with "Surrogate Timesheet" for the period. These resource don't have a computer, but data is needed for billing system. They are working in this way since January 2008 without any issues (except some user mistakes).

    Since begin August when creation of July timesheets was started, we have a lot of issues. While creating surrogate timesheet, user gets an error with someting like "Event Service". Eventlog shows PSError: GeneralActionCanceledBecauseServerEventServiceProblem (22002) for PSI Entry points TimeSheet.CreateTimesheet
     and Resource.CheckInResources.

    Excerpt of UlsLog:
    Process: Microsoft.Office.Project.Server (0x23C4)

    After restarting services and editing resources, surrogate timesheet can be created.

    I have only one suspicion, and I hope, that it is not true - we applied CU June on July 20th.

    Has anyone seen something similar?
    Thanks in advance!

  • I believe this environment has configured with Timesheet tied mode.

    When the project services (especially Event service) are frozen or the event handlers are not functioning appropriately, it will not be able to process the Timesheet request.

  • Hi Sririam,

    no timesheet tied mode. Not necessary with this procedure.

    - Enter actual work on project level (no difference if via "My Tasks" or directly in project plan)
    - publish
    - create timesheet for this period

    -> actual work is prepopulated as actual work billable.

    I also think that Event Services gets frozen. Do you have any idea why and how to prevent?

  • Ok, since it seems that no-one has seen something similar, I opened a call with Microsoft.

  • Hi,

    sorry to tell: I have no idea, if and how this was solved. I stopped working for this company while this case was running. During investigation, it seemed to be a lack of performance on SQL side. But I can't tell you more.

    I can only suggest to open a call yourself.
