Data Migration from 2007 to 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • We use Proj 2007 server inclusive of Portfolio 2007 currently. In Project 2007, we are not using the timesheet module only the task and project tracking. Wondering if anyone would be able to advise if migrating up to 2010 from this set up would be quick and easy or very time consuming. I have heard that you could reattach the old database ot the new etc etc. I would greatly appreciate input from the field on this. thanks,

  • Migrations are never simple.  That being said, the Project Server 2007 >
    2010 migration path is pretty simple, and barring any major hiccups, should
    work just fine.
     
    Your Portfolio Server implementation may be a bit more complicated.  The
    Ignite slides (downloadable from Microsoft's site if you Bing it) have a
    section discussing potential upgrade paths from Portfolio Server 2007 to
    Project Server 2010.  My general inclination would be to simple recreate
    that component from scratch, but that's dependent on how much data you have
    in it.
     
    You could also continue to run Portfolio Server in parallel with Project
    Server 2010.  Depending on what features in PPS you're currently using, that
    may or may not make sense.

  • quick and easy are relative terms perhaps for me :) but be assured if you follow the well documented MS Technet approach as detailed, it should be pretty quick and easy to do it, for me it took around 3 hours to complete a migration(excluding setup of environment time) :)  again depends and is subjective on how comfortable you are with it

    Refer to this technet article : http://technet.microsoft.com/en-US/projectserver/ee691958.aspx
