Project Server 2010 : Deleted project and work space restore RRS feed

  • Question

  • Good Day,

    A client has deleted both a project and the associated work space. I have taken a backup, restored it to to a QA Server, exported the workspace fromn QA qand Imported to the Production Environment. The Schedule was saved locally as well so we used that copy to "restore"  the schedule. But when i try to relink the schedule and workspace i get the "Given Site was not created with a project server template "

    The thing is, the site was actually created with a valid template. I think it has something to do with the Export / Import

    Your help will be appreciated

  • Hi Andre,

    Is the Project Site Collaboration lists feature activated on the imported site? If not activate it and try again. If the site still doesn't relink then the site has been modified (rename/default default lists / fields) and Project Server doesnt see it as a valid Project Server site. This link might help you:

  • HI Paul,

    Just some feedback, the feature was activated already, so what i did was follow the steps to create blank - Delete as per your blog posting. It did the trick with some limitations. Fortunatly none of the limitations is a show stopper. For example the "Risk" indicator in project center is not appearing in the Indicator colum, even though there are risks associated with the project, a publish also did not help.

    But point being it worked.

    Thanks a mil
