Migrate Project Server configurations RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I would like to export the configuration elements of Ms Project Server 2010 such as EPT, Custom Fields and Lookup from one environment(DEV) to another. I have used Playbook tool for migraition. However, Playbook doesn't work with https site.

    Are there utilities, add-ons and approaches to migrate Ms Project Server elements across environments? I would appreciate any help in this regard.

  • Hi Abhikit,

    The FluentBook from FluentPro is an efficient configuration tool.

    Hope this helps,

  • Thanks for the reply. However, it is a licensed tool. I am looking for non-licensed utilities and add-ons.

  • Hello,

    For Project Server 2010, Playbooks is the only free tool, others such as Fluent Pro are paid for. The other options you have if Playbooks is failing on your HTTPS site are:

  • Playbook tool doesn't work even after accessing via HTTP using Alternate Access Mapping. I would like to go for writing my own bakup and restore tool. Could you please share the details for creating backup and restore tool.

  • If HTTPS is part of your problem with using Playbooks, then create an AAM (Alternate Access Method) to reference the site without HTTPS and turn off the signature requirement in IIS (If it is turned on).  Once you finish with the playbooks migration, then remove the AAM

    When using Playbooks, some of the features do not work, such as workflow. So try using only parts of the playbooks.  It also sounds like you may be using some 3rd party web parts and this is breaking Playbooks.
