Even if you are not migrating from Project server 2003 the Virtual Migration Environment (VME) has something for you! One key point for migration (migration usually refers to 2003 to 2010) or upgrade (2007 to 2010) is that “Script 9” should always be run and acted upon. This script identifies some known conditions in your 2007 system and this is just as applicable if you have come through the VME, or are just starting from 2007 and looking to upgrade to 2010. These are the conditions it identifies:
Even though the title of the TechNet page for the scripts at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff700189.aspx does say “optional” – treat this as being optional in the same way as paying taxes. The penalties for not doing it can be quite hard. This also goes for your 2007 to 2010 upgrade even if you did not start in 2003, nor use the VME.
Another tip for the VME is that you could use this as a practice ground for your 2007 to 2010 upgrade, even if you are not starting from 2003. It is after all just a pre-configured Project Server 2007 system. You could add your own Project Server and SharePoint databases, provision a PWA site and test out the upgrade to 2010 – rather than having to build up your own test environment. Give it a try!
