Project Server on the same machine as Sharepoint server or different machine RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi I am planning to roll out sharepoint server 2010 in our dev enviroment along with the project server. We have a userbase of about 500 users and around 100 concurrent users. Now the questions is :

    1. Would it be better to have Sharepoint 2010 and Project Server 2010 on the same server within a single farm

    2. Or have one server dedicated to sharepoint server 2010 install and another one for project server.

    3. Incase we decide to go with the option 2, how can we configure this as I have not configured multiple servers in a farm, except for segregating the Database.

  • Not sure I understand, are you looking for architectural recommendations
    for your DEV or PROD environment?
     
    1) For DEV, you can install everything as a single server farm (WFE, Project
    Server, SQL, AD).  Don't pick the standalone install option, but pick farm
    install, then install everything on one server.  Personally, I'd prefer my
    DEV environment to look reasonably close to my PROD architecture, but that's
    a preference and not necessarily a recommendation - provided of course that
    you do have a TEST environment that is exactly the same as PROD.
     
    2) You mean have one Web Front End (WFE) and one Project Server App Server
    - and one SQL Server - and AD.  This is the typical deployment I see for
    a PROD environment.  You'd have to check the hardware and network specs to
    ensure that this would support your deployment, but my guess is that if you
    don't run into other performance bottlenecks and have decent hardware, that
    should be enough for your needs.
     
    Check on Technet for the appropriate hardware recommendations.

  • Hello Andrew,

    I am planning to put sharepoint server on one WFE and Project Server on a different WFE in the same farm. Both WFE's would also work as an application server. Please suggest how can i proceed to this.

  • Since it’s a dev environment you can either way you want .

     I just build a dev environment using 2 server Sharepoint2010 is installed on both. One is application server where CA , Search , userprofile , excel and other services are running . I am also using the same server as project server means project server service is running on the app server. Other server is just a wfe and queryservice server.
