Project Server migrated, but cannot be accessed from application server RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have completed the 5 database migration from our production environment to one of our test environments.  Everything seems to be working correctly from client PCs and other servers in our environment; however, from the application servers (load balanced between 2 applicaiton servers) I am unable to access the site.  I am able to get to every other application/website hosted through in the test SharePoint environment.  The newly migrated Project Server seems to be the only site having issues.

  • Hello Mike

    Each load balance is setup different.  Are you using DNS names or IP address?  You need to provide more details on how the NLB is setup, your front ends and etc.

    Be sure that IIS has binding for the different DNS names when switching between the front ends.  They may need to be binded in IIS.

  • We were able to set up a work around for this using the host files.  We are still looking into possible issues  with the load balancer, but at this time everything is working in the environment with the host file entries.

    Thanks.

  • Hi,

    Try disabling the loopback check and check the behavior.

    1.Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
    2.In Registry Editor, locate and then click the following registry key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa

    3.Right-click Lsa, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.
    4.Type DisableLoopbackCheck, and then press ENTER.
    5.Right-click DisableLoopbackCheck, and then click Modify.
    6.In the Value data box, type 1, and then click OK.
    7.Quit Registry Editor, and then restart your computer.

  • If host files is working, then it sound as though your DNS entries are not set up correctly.  Each node should be defined separately as you found with using Host Files.    IE.   ServerNode1 and ServerNode2 with NLB switching between the two,

    However, most NLB that I have seen don't use DNS names and use an IP address for routing.  It really depends on what your NLB requires.

    Cheers!
