Project Web Access 2010: Change the owner of a project fails RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi!
    System: Project Server 2010 Backward Compatiblity Mode
    Migrated from Project Server 2007.

    I am trying to change the owner of a specific project. It works with a lot of project, but with some projects I receive the following queue error as I click on "Save" in the Project Web Access:

    ProjectSchedulingEngineException (9133). Details: id='9133' name='ProjectSchedulingEngineException' uid='b2f03dfa-6f0b-4086-bd78-5007e7d88257' exception='Microsoft.Office.Project.Scheduling.EventHorizonFinishException: Error in the application. at Microsoft.Office.Project.Server.BusinessLayer.ProjectSchedule.Schedule() at Microsoft.Office.Project.Server.BusinessLayer.ProjectMain.HandleProject(ProjectDataSet dataset, Guid projectUid, Boolean fSkipSchedulingCalc, Guid userUid, String userName, Boolean isNew, Boolean addColumns, ProjectLocks projectLock, Boolean fCheckReadOnly, Boolean fCheckProtectedActuals, Boolean fAllowAddEntRes, Boolean fOptIndexRecalced, Guid templateUid, Boolean fSkipCfFormulaCalc)'.

For more details, check the ULS logs on machine VIE165NT for entries with JobUID cc4ed594-f5c0-4a30-a6d1-cf0a50772b0f.

  • Hi Gerald,

    the owner is the same for every projects?

    Has the user (new owner) the correct permissions (ie Create Projects) ?

    Hope that can help you,

    Best Regards

  • Hi Paolo!

    I used the owner for other projects, if that's what you mean. I set this user to own other projects, and it worked.

    Thanks for the input!

    Kind regards,

  • Hi Gerald

    Has this been solved? I registered exact the same behaviour?

  • Hi!

    Sorry, no this issue has not been solved, I don't know why Mr. Fiessinger marked it as answered without comment.

    I still have this issue. Right now, what I do as workaround is:

    Open the project in MS Project

    Save it as file to the desktop

    Then again save the file to the server with the exact same name to overwrite the old server version

    After that I can change the Project Owner to the correct person via Project Web Access. (You have to do that at that point because as soon as you overwrite the project you are the owner of the new server version.)

    Hope it helps you!

    Kind regards,

  • I just stumpled upon the very same issue and have found the following KB article/hotfix that seems to address the problem:

    However, I haven't tested it just yet. Will post again once I've done so.

  • I have the same issue for a client with SP2.

    I assume this KB is included in SP2.

    Is there another solution?
