Project Server 2010 in a multi-tenanted environment

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 11, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Can Project Server 2010 be setup in a multi-tenanted SharePoint 2010 environment? Basically, does Project Server 2010 support multi-tenancy?

If so does anyone have any good documentation on how to set this up? I've tried searching but just couldn't find anything specific on this.

Configuring SharePoint Foundation 2010 with ADFS 2.0 in a multi-tenant environment using subscripti

Hi, I am trying to configure SharePointFoundation 2010 and ADFS 2.0 in a multi-tenant environment, where I have one Web Application and two site collections, each one under one subscription.  At this point is still a very simple infrastructure with one single Domain, AD and ADFS.  My problem starts with the configuration of ADFS 2.0 as Identity Provider in SharePoint. Since I have only one web application, the directory for the incoming token is "_trust" is placed at the root level or the application. Is there a way to change the location where this directory is created, so I can have one distinct one for each one of my site collections ? Or in other words, is there a way to have on identity provider by site collection ?  Thank in you advance for any information on this.   --MD.

Visual Studio 2010 Lab Environment for Student to deploy to a IIS 7.5 web server with SQL 2008

Currently the environment I am trying to create is a teaching lab for Visual Studio 2010 and ASP.NET website development. The intent is to setup an environment where students can create a website with an attached database written with the assistance of Visual Studio 2010. When the website is completed they need to use one of the Visual Studio deploy technologies to upload the website to a locally run server (Windows 2008 R2 with IIS 7.5 running and SQL Server 2008.) I am responsible for setting up the correct deploy technology in Visual Studio as well as setting up the IIS 7.5 deployment server that is running the right version of SQL Server. I have already started this process and figured out how to configure a deployment package in visual studio and have it published on our local server. I am trying to get a very streamlined environment that does not require students have to configure a lot of SQL strings and IIS settings because this is not really what the teaching lab is all about. Just to let you know, we have had  this exact setup using Visual Studio 2008, Server 2003 with front page server extensions on IIS 6.0 and SQL Server Compact edition running on the server. My issue is that since it is now time to update everything there does not seem to be something comparable. Any help would be greatly appreciated. If someone has an idea of the 

Does the "F5 experience" work with a multi-server 2010 farm?

I have a multi-server SharePoint 2010 farm I'm attempting to develop against.  I have Visual Studio 2010 installed on one of the servers.  When I create a default Visual Web Part project and hit F5, I get an error such as the following:   "Error 1 Error occurred in deployment step 'Activate Features': Feature with Id '06789185-b4a0-41d8-a535-1d8602a05b97' is not installed in this farm, and cannot be added to this scope."   After a bit of searching, I came across a thread that suggested multi-server farms were not supported by Visual Studio 2010 in regards to the F5 experience of being able to deploy, activate, and debug a feature.  Can anyone shed light on this for me?Chris Stewart

Clone production Sharepoint 2010 server to Developmet environment - steps? help?


Greetings all,

I'd really appreciate some thoughts and suggestions about how to make a clone of our Sharepoint 2010 Production environment that we can use for testing and development.

At the moment, we are likely to have two different servers (Production is a much more expensive, powerful server) for the scenarios; so if we make a direct clone, the Windows OS files would be upset.

Would it be enough to simply copy the Windows Shared files into the Dev system (taking all modifications with it) and the db into a cloned db?

If not, what are the things we'll have to consider, and/or has anyone accomplished this yet?

Thanks for your tips and suggestions!


SharePoint / Project Server 2010 Unable to edit a HTTPS site in SharePoint designer 32 bit



I posted this thread below under a different forum and was requested to move.  Below is our current problem and the feedback that was given.

We currently have a project server 2010 site with several workspaces associated with it.  When trying to edit the site (either from choosing edit is designer from the site actions or from trying to open from within the designer) a dialog appears asking to choose a certificate for the site.domain.com.

The certificate issued by the site is a GeoTrust certificate and checks ok when browsing the site in IE.  This Windows security dialog also appears when trying to export to excel on the same site.

Any thoughts to what we are missing?

Why I can't install Project Server 2010 on my SharePoint 2010 Server?


I recently installed on my server SharePoint 2010, SQL Server 2008 is on another box and all seems to work fine, except that when I try to install Project Server 2010 it keeps telling me that I need ton install SP 2010.

I already checked that the required edition of SP is the Enterprise, as far as I remember that is the edition I activated because I used the Product Key for the  "SharePoint Server 2010 For Internet Sites Enterprise", but to double check this (and correct it if I am wrong I went to the 'Convert License Type' page and not only it does NOT show what my current license is (information is empty), but also the box to type a new Key is disabled, so I am not allowed to try to change the one used.

Can anybody tell me what is going wrong?

Making Claims based authentication work with multi-tenant environment in SP 2010


Does anybody know of a guide or reference for setting up hosting in a multi tenant where authentication happens in claims based mode?


We have a setup where our clients are hosted on a single web application under different site collections. And we use forms authentication where user of a particular site collection gets authentication using the respective database. We now want to use claims based authentication and out-of-the-box multi-tenancy of SP 2010. We can setup site collections and site groups, but how do we implement claims based authentication in an env like this?

Cannot refresh OLAP-based data in Excel Services workbook in browser (SP 2010 / Project Server 2010)



In SharePoint 2010, Project Server 2010, Business Intelligence Center, upon attempting to refresh OLAP data in an Excel chart in the browser, the following error appears:

An error occurred during an attempt to establish a connection to the external data source.  The following connections failed to refresh:

My ODC Connection Name

We have loaded and configured Project Server 2010 according to spec (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee662109.aspx).  Excel Services is configured according to spec (global settings, trusted file locations, trusted data providers and trusted data connection libraries).  The Secure Store Service is configured with the ProjectServerApplication target application. 

Non-OLAP data refreshes of spreadsheet data work fine in the browser.  OLAP data refreshes in the Excel client itself work fine.  Only the OLAP refreshes in the browser fail.  The problem occurs whether using a Microsoft ODC or one that we created (saved in a trusted location).

The ULS log has only one error, which is:

SharePoint 2010 with Project Server 2010 Issues


Hi all,

i have a clean installation of SharePoint 2010 and Project Server 2010 in a test enviroment with two servers (APP+DB).

After completing the installation of SharePoint and Project, I have installed the October 26 Cumulative update both for SharePoint and Project.

The upgrade was finished successfully without errors but in the Healt Analyzer there are two issues under the configuration category:

  1. <!-- [if gte mso 10]> <mce:style>


    Product / patch installation or server upgrade required.

    Correlation key issues in a multi-server environment


    I have a long running workflow installed on a two server farm with a sql persistance store on a third server. Each receive statement is within a TransactedReceiveScope and appears to work correctly. If the workflow initially runs on server1, it will work properly on server1 but not server2 and visa versa.

    The correlation data I'm passing to the workflow receive statement is definitely correct on both servers. The event log error message is as follows:

    The execution of an InstancePersistenceCommand was interrupted because the instance key 'ce0773ae-f73b-1202-0a22-d604d5c087f6' was not associated to an instance. This can occur because the instance or key has been cleaned up, or because the key is invalid. The key may be invalid if the message it was generated from was sent at the wrong time or contained incorrect correlation data

    I ran a sql trace and discovered that the "instance key" is parameter @keyToLoadBy in stored procedure [System.Activities.DurableInstancing].[LoadInstance]. I assume this value is calculated from the correlation data, however the value differs on the two servers even when the same correlation data is provided.

    Does anyone have any thoughts as to what's wrong.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
