Install Project Server 2013 in an existing farm RRS feed

  • Question

  • After verification of the requirements for the installation of Microsoft Project Server 2013 I have this situation 
    Server 1 - Sharepoint 2013 Enterprise 
    Server 2 - MSSQL 2012 
    Server 3  - Project Server 2013 
    I can not install Project Server 2013 on a single server, it asks me to install Sharepoint 2013 Enterprise on the same server? is that correct?

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    Yes, that is correct. SharePoint Server 2013 is required. Also, you will need to install Project Server 2013 on the first server in your farm so you will end up with something like:

    Server 1 - SharePoint 2013 Enterprise, Project Server 2013
    Server 2 - MSSQL 2012 
    Server 3  - SharePoint 2013 Enterprise, Project Server 2013

    thanks

  • Hi,

    If you want a single farm with the configuration you mentioned then yes you will need two SharePoint 2013 Enterprise licenses and two Project Server 2013 licenses

    Another option would be to have two separate farms (it depends on your requirements and what you want to achieve):

    - one farm where you have SharePoint 2013 only (Server1 and Server 2)

    - the second farm where you have SharePoint 2013 and Project Server 2013 (Server 3 and Server 2)

    In this case the number of Project Server licenses will be reduced to only one. However, the question would be if the Server 2 (SQL Server) will handle both farms

    Hope this helps

    Paul
