Project Server 2007 Infrastructure Update Release

This white paper covers the new features and changes associated with the Project Client and Infrastructure Update for Microsoft Office Project 2007.

Back up and restore your farm (Project Server 2007)

With the new Infrastructure Update, the globally unique identifier (GUID) and change log of each content database are retained when you restore or re-attach the database. Therefore, if you are reattaching a recent database version, Search does not need to perform a full crawl to integrate the reattached content database. This is a substantial improvement over the RTM release of the product.
