Start Project Server Service Application with PowerShell RRS feed

  • Question

  • It may be a very simple question: how could the Project Server Application be started using PowerShell?

    Sure there's 'Start-SPProjectServerApplication' but it needs an Identity GUID, you'll could use 'Get-SPServiceApplication' for a list of applications, copy-and-paste the GUID from here, but there's no way of filter for the specific Project Server Application. Another idea is to use the only Get* Command from Project Server PowerShell support 'Get-SPProjectWebInstance' with the URL parameter, but this one won't work until the instance is started.

    How could a PowerShell three-liner look like to start the Project Server Application?

  • When you put the to pices together like

        Start-SPServiceInstance -Identity (Get-SPServiceInstance | ? {$_.TypeName -like "*Project*"})

    it works great, thanks for your ideas and have a good day.

  • Did you mean Project Application Service instead of Project Server Application?

    You can use this command to get Identity & Status of your Project Application Service in your farm:

    Get-SPServiceInstance | ? {$_.TypeName -like "*Project*"}
    

    and use Start-SPServiceInstance [-Identity] command to start service:

    Start-SPServiceInstance [-Identity]
    

    example (in my case):

    Start-SPServiceInstance 406f1ce4-fba2-4ccb-a150-d895c8b350ce
