Project Server 2013 (On Premise) unable to retrieve user's Out Of Office status RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We have fresh deployment of the Project Server 2013 and Exchange upgraded from version 2010 to version 2013 with 1 CAS+Transport and 1 Mailbox roles server. The integration was done according to the Technet, via running configuration script (### is the Project Server host name):

    Configure-EnterprisePartnerApplication.ps1 -ApplicationType Sharepoint -AuthMetadataUrl https://####/_layouts/15/metadata/json/1

    Check Partner Applications:


    Name                    ApplicationIdentifier   Realm                   UseAuthServer           Enabled
    ----                    ---------------------   -----                   -------------           -------
    Exchange Online         00000002-0000-0ff1-c...                         True                    False
    SharePointEnterprise... 00000003-0000-0ff1-c... 294a6ced-db44-4e16-8... False                   True

    The Project Server is able to create and update tasks for users. However the Out of Office time is not retrieved from the Exchange. The timer Job, when running Out of office synchronization job, is throwing the error:

    Standard Information:PSI Entry Point: <unknown>
    Project User: <unknown>
    Correlation Id: <unknown>
    PWA Site URL:
    SA Name: <unknown>
    PSError: <unknown>
    A queue job has failed. This is a general error logged by the Project Server Queue everytime a job fails - for effective troubleshooting use this error message with other more specific error messages (if any), the Operations guide (which documents more details about queued jobs) and the trace log (which could provide more detailed context). More information about the failed job follows. GUID of the failed job: 548975be-5198-e511-8113-00155d548803. Name of the computer that processed this job: a6778025-7d09-448f-bd03-4110d47bf15b (to debug further, you need to look at the trace log from this computer). Failed job type: ExchangeCalOofSync. Failed sub-job type: ExchangeCalendarOofSyncUpdate. Failed sub-job ID: 1. Stage where sub-job failed:  (this is useful when one sub-job has more than one logical processing stages).

    We already have tried to recreate Application with Exchange, to create site mailbox, to set different permissions for the test users, but the error is the same.

    Could someone help with troubleshooting this issue?

    Kind regards,

  • any help from:


    P.S. If you cant find anything on the Sharepoint side of the forums, I would open a ticket with Microsoft. Im not even sure that the functionality you want is available.

  • Did not help much, unfortunately.

    I've raised this question in the Project Server forum, as it is not specific for Sharepoint.

  • Hi again,

    Our Project Server specialist also indicates few more log entries, which indicates that Exchange is not answering to the query from the Project server. Those does not say much for me, but maybe someone could give a hint, regarding those? Here they are:
