Project File Checker - Issues with Saving to Project Server 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We are having some problems with a few projects on some of our environments (Project Server 2010) hanging at 98-99% for over an hour sometimes. These are projects that have been on the server, but something a user does seems to cause some sort of corruption after which this hanging in the Project Server Queue starts occurring. Even if we move the project file to a different environment, the same behavior occurs.

    Saving the MPP seems to cause no issues with slowdown or lag. The issues only seem to happen on a few schedules around the 98 to 99% range.

    I know there are a few applications out there that are supposed to look for potential issues in Project Files, but I am not very familiar with any of them. Does anyone out there have suggestions on what could be causing these issues with files hanging on saves like this, or software packages that could do the job?

  • Hello Bill,

    Project Pro saving job hanging after 95% is related to the SRA record in the project server.
    Could you please check ULS log? You may see error similar to

    Winproj did not provide guid for bool custom field XXXXXX for container Assignment XXXX-XXXX-XXXX

  • I have not yet checked the ULS Logs. However, these projects don't have resources assigned to summary tasks. Saving the projects to different environments still has it hanging in the 99% range as well.

  • Hi Bill,

    Summary Resource Assignments (SRAs) are not assignments to summary tasks - but summaries of the assignments of the resource used to show availability when working in other projects - to avoid having to open all projects at once.  Hopefully the ULS logs will give some clues - but 98-99% sounds a little late in the process to be SRA's.  Let me know if you find anything in the ULS and I'll see if I can track down what is being saved at that point in the process.

    Best regards,
