Well new to blogging anyway. Doug McCutcheon has joined the realm of Project bloggers with particular focus on our partner community. Welcome Doug, go visit his blog and perhaps we’ll even find out what ate his cat???
If you have started working with Project Server 2013 and have run into issues with Project Sites not being provisioned as you expect, and are using Alternate Access Mappings (AAM), then take a look over on the new Project Support site at the latest posting - http://blogs.technet.com/b/projectsupport/archive/2013/01/10/project-server-2013-project-sites-alternate-access-mapping-and-themes.aspx
The April 2014 Cumulative Update (CU) for Project 2010, Project 2013, Project Server 2010 and Project Server 2013 is now released (mostly) so see Microsoft Project Server 2010 and 2013 April 2014 CU Announcement for the full details. Due to some recent issues with SharePoint and Project Server 2013 SP1 there are some packages held back, including a patch that contains several of the fixes for Project Server 2013 that folks are waiting for. View load failures in timesheets, status update for mater pages, saving protected baselines and grouping in views are ones affected. More information once I have it.
There should be no issue installing the April CU if you already loaded SP1 (I gave a false alarm earlier – but my server had a pre-release SP1 installed). We will be re-releasing SP1 and when we do you should re-install even if you have SP1 installed already – this will ensure no issue will be seen with future patches.
*** Update 4/22 SP1 re-release
Stefan's blog has the full download links for SP1 http://blogs.technet.com/b/stefan_gossner/archive/2014/04/22/sp1-for-sharepoint-2013-has-been-rereleased.aspx
And patch again to avoid the lost resources issue - unless you also load April CU. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2933444
Welcome to my Microsoft Office Project Support blog! The aim of this blog is to post some useful information, particularly about the latest release - Project Server 2007. Why on MSDN? Well, this release really takes Project more into the realms of a development platform and I am sure many of my posts will deal with the Project Server Interface (PSI) a set of Web Services that allow you to do many of the things you can do with Project Professional, most of the things you can do through Project Web Access - and a few things you can't do through either! Plus it doesn't really matter where I am - as many of you will be reading this in some other form - either though Outlook's new capabilities with RSS Feeds or Internet Explorer 7 - or perhaps even a non-Microsoft news reader.
I am not going to be able to address specific answers to posted comments - the public newsgroups or our other support channels may be better for these, but for one line answers, or pointers to Knowledge Base articles I will try my best to give these. The real aim is to help with some of the known issues and guidance on some of the new features that will hopefully save you a support call. With any new release there are some new features that take a little understanding - and even occasionally some bugs that we didn't quite get fixed. I will be helping you understand how we intend the new stuff to work - so that you know when it is working as we intended but perhaps not as you might have liked it.
I will be adding links to some of the other great sources of information on Project and keeping my focus on support. Please let me have comments on any topics you feel need some coverage - and above all I hope you enjoy working with this great new release!
If like me you didn’t get along to the SharePoint Conference in Las Vegas, then you can find out plenty about the new version on the SharePoint blog at http://blogs.msdn.com/sharepoint/archive/2009/10/19/sharepoint-2010.aspx. Also announced today at the conference was the availability of the Beta of Office and SharePoint 2010 (and of course Project 2010 and Project Server 2010) next month. See http://www.microsoft.com/project/2010/en/us/default.aspx for more details.
