Host Project Sites in another web application - Project Server 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everyone:

    I´ve installed Project Server 2010

    I want to host Project Sites in another web application  different to web application that i used for host PWA Site,

    http://srv09prj01 is web application for host PWA Site

    For that purpose:

    I created a new web application, with a new app pool and a new content database http://srv09prj01:81

    I created a site collection for this web application http://srv09prj01:81

    But in  Project Server 2010 Server Settings -> Operational Policies ->Project Site Provisiong Settings in Site URl section i just can see one  web application (web application for host PWA)  but i can´t see the new web application that i´ve recently created it.

    Is there any missed step that i have to do ?

    Help me please,


    Gina Ocaña

  • In 2007, it was a recommended practice to split PWA and workspaces into their own site collections - not Web Apps.  A previous poster listed the same issue with getting Web Apps to show up as provisioning options.  You may want to search this list and see if that was resolved.

    I've observed the same issue, but haven't figured out the solution....

  • Gina,

    Rather than setting up a second web application to host the Project Sites, you can create a new site collection and deploy it in it's own content database, within the same application.

    I hope this helps,

  • Hi Gina,

    You must create new PWA instance from SharePoint Central Administration. When you will be create new PWA instance, you can select needed web application. If you want to migrate PWA site from one web application to another, you can use this manual: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff961887.aspx

  • I will add to A.Green comments.  THe PWA is within a site collection.  Creating additional instance are creating additin site collection.  SIte collection is where the security boundary lies and thus you will not be able to cross security boundaries

  • Thanks A. Green and Michael.

    I can noted that project sites in Project Server 2010 are totally different from Project Server 2007, becuase in PS2007 was a best practice host Workspaces in another web application  than web application for PWA 2007.

    But in your answers you told me that for archive this goal i have to create a new PWA instance, so i´ll have new Project Server databases, a i dont want this, I dont want a new PWA instance.

    So, is  there any problem if I create project sites in the same web application ??

    Could yo explain me, please?

     

    Greetings,

    Gina
