Impossible to create Project Site (PWA2016 on-prem) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everybody,

    Few days ago, we encountered a very silly error on our on-prem PWA2016.
    We're not able to create project site (from PWA or from Project Client).
    After a quick look at the ULS, we find this error. TBH, I don't know what to do or where to look at.

    Error is: GeneralUnhandledException. 
    Details: General Unhandled Exception in _WssInterop.CreateWssSite_ 
    Attributes:  System.UriFormatException: Invalid URI: The URI is empty.

    Any help or insight is very welcome.

  • It looks like the site creation is failing. Are you using the standard out of box template for project site? 

    Did you happen to update the Issue, Risk or Deliverable web part for the project site template?

  • Hi Michael,

    Please find below my answers.

    • Are you using the standard out of box template for project site?  

    >>> Yes, we gave away custom Site Template, prior to PWA2016 migration, 1 year ago.

    • Did you happen to update the Issue, Risk or Deliverable web part for the project site template? 

    >>> Absolutely not.

    Thanks for your help.
