Project Server into an Existing SP install RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    We have a 6 server SharePoint farm, 3 app, and 3 wfe, and need to install Project Server to it. Do we have to install Project Server to all of them? And, should we just run the service on just one? Can someone tell me high level steps of the install process?

    Are there any real no no steps?

  • Hello,

    You need to install project server binaries on all servers and make sure you also apply the same cumulative updates/service pack for project server. If your SharePoint farm is at service pack 2 then you need to apply service pack 2 for project server while installing it on all servers. 

    You can run the service from any one of the app server.

    Below are the brief steps.

    1) Install project server with appropriate patch on all servers (you can create slipstream package for installing patches)

    2) Run the SharePoint config wizard from the central admin server and then from remaining app servers and the from remaining wfe servers

    Hope this helps

  • The above procedure is valid for 2013 farm as well. You need to just install the Project Server 2013 SP1 if you already have the SharePoint SP1 installed.

    No need to install March PU as SP1 is roll up of all cumulative and public updates. More information on Project Server 2013 SP1 can be found at http://blogs.technet.com/b/projectsupport/archive/2014/02/25/project-2013-and-project-server-2013-service-pack-1.aspx

    Thank you,

  • Thanks, forgot to mention its Project Server 2013, does this make a difference? Our SharePoint 2013 is SP1, so do we have to install just SP1 for Project Server e.g. not the whole Project Server (inc SharePoint) update?

    And, what about March PU, is this required for SP1?
