Project Server Restore Error RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to restore project server.  After going through the steps of the restore when I go to the project server landing page I get the following error.

    The base type 'Microsoft.Office.Project.PWA.PJBaseWebPartPage' is not allowed for this page. The type is not registered as safe.

    Got any ideas on how to get past this issue.  Thanks in advance

  • One thing I'd consider doing at this juncture is to create a second instance
    with my 4 Project Server databases - that may have to be your fallback position.
     You'll lose any customization or content on PWA, but at least will have
    all of your project data.  I'd prefer to work through the Webpart issue,
    but if you have stakeholders breathing down your neck, this could mollify
    them just a bit.
     
    Could you describe the steps you took to backup/restore Project Server?

  • Hello DavidLewis27

    Provide more information, like Project Server version and IE browser version.

    Do any of the quicklinks work in PWA.

    What kind of errors are in your event log and your ULS logs.

    CHeers!

  • Hi,

    Were there any modifications made to the PWA page? Custom items added?  I have seen this error before when I have 'hacked' the page to edit it (I know, naughty boy).

  • No modifications were made that I am aware of.  Project Server is 2007 with SP2  IE is a mix of 7 and 8 but the error message comes up for both
