Project Server 2007 and SharePoint 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    Can anyone tell me if it is possible to migrate to SharePoint 2010 (from MOSS or WSS 3.0) and keep Project Server 2007? Or do we need to migrate Project Server to 2010 in order to use SharePoint 2010?

    thanks

  • ....or you might look into moving Project Server 2007 into Project Server
    2010 with Backwards Compatibility Mode. That might end up being the easiest
    option as the migration is a pretty simple database detach, reattach. The
    learning curve from 2007 Server Admin to 2010 Admin isn't all that great,
    especially as you're already looking at a SharePoint 2010 deployment and
    would most likely turn off some of the extra features like Portfolio Analysis,
    etc.
     
    Just throwing the option out there for consideration.

  • Hi ClaraOscura,

    Yes you can migrate WSS 3 to SharePoint 2010 and keep Project Server 2007. But you will have to keep your SharePoint 2007 farm because Project Server 2007 runs on SharePoint 2007. So you will have to create a new SharePoint 2010 farm on different hardware!

    Why keep Project Server 2007 if I may ask?

    I hope this helps,
    Hans

  • Hello Hans

    Thanks for your answer. Our project is about implementing an intranet on SharePoint 2010. In this context, we were thinking of moving the Project Server 2007 documents to the new SharePoint 2010. But migrating Project Server 2007 is not really in scope.

    If I understand what you say, it doesn't make much sense to migrate WSS3.0 to SharePoint 2010 if we still need to keep our SharePoint 2007 farm.
