  • Hi,

    What do the logs say? Event viewer, ULS logs? 

    Also try to check the properties of the webapplication and see if they don't contain test server information.

    Try the following:

    $Web = get-SPWeb http://<servername>/<PWAInstance>

    $Web.AllProperties | Format-Table

    Check if the information gives you the PWAURL you are expecting. If not you need to update it.



    Hope it helps.

    With kind regards,

    I restored four database and tried to PWA provisioning its giving the following error.

    "Provisioning 'PWA': Failed to provision databases. An exception occurred: Published database schema version newer than project server schema version"

  • Hi Muhammed,

    From the error, it looks like the environment in which the DB's are being restored is at a lower version then compared to the farm from which the DB's were backed up.

    I would suggest you to install the Service Pack or the Cumulative Update on this farm as well and then try provisioning the PWA.

  • Hi Dinesh,

    Thank you for your answer.

    I installed CU and patches in Production server same as the test server.

    Now the PWA provisioned successfully but i got another issue that when i tried to create new project the project centre occures "An Unknown Error".

    I applied hotfix for resolving this issue but the result is same.

    Project centre giving "An Unknown error"

  • Is this a custom EPT? Can you try creating the project using an OOB template.

  • Did you use all 5 databases in the final working provision?  If not then the error may be due to missing PDPs as these are in the Content DB.  I'd suggest getting a 5 DB restore and provision working - or if you have not created new EPT's then you could just edit the existing ones to ensure the pages are referenced correctly.  Unknown error is very generic - check the ULS logs for the specific error - just applying a hotfix that happened to resolve a very specific 'unknown error' is very unlikely to fix anything else.
