Unable to provision new PWA RRS feed

  • Question

  • Environment

    SharePoint 2007 (WSS) and ProjectServer. Version

    What we are tyring to do

    We have an existing PWA running. We are trying to create a new PWA through the Central Admin screen. There is a content database available and the URL is not being used.

    Error we are getting

    Provisioning  ‘PWA’: Error provisioning site or database

    System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. at Microsoft.Office.Project.Server.Administration.ProjectPSISharedApplication.RemovePWASite

    It looks like it's trying to remove a PWA site first, but it's not finding it and causing the provision to stop.

    In the event log you could find some additional error message, typically there are 4 error messages associated with PWA provisioning failure

    Could you please share those details?
