Project Server 2016 - Content databases do not have Project Server Schema RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everyone,

    after an installation with the usual scripts of Project Server 2016 Preview, everything was there (web application, profiles, search, project server service & service application, etc.) and I was ready to create the PWA site.

    However, Enable-feature PWA failed because all content databased were missing the Project Server schema extension.

    Recreating content databases, web application etc. did not resolve the issues.

    Finally, I ended upscrapping and rebuilding the farm with the wizards, and the schemas were there and the PWA instance was created.

    Did anyone experience something similar?

    Thank you and best regards,

  • Yes, I have exactly the same problem! Maybe it's because of the "Single Server Farm" minrole that I chose when installing SharePoint. I found that I could not start the Project Server Application Service, and had to convert to the Custom role in able to start the service.

  • Hi Erik,

    I did the steps you mentioned - convert role, start service and create service application. They were shown as running correctly. However, I was not able to create the content DBs correctly. I'll report to SP 2016 Preview forums.

    Best regards,
