Although installing the programs that are listed in the "Applies to" section on the same server may be a good testing environment, we do not recommend this practice if a company is
going to use these services to their fullest capacity.
Microsoft Office SharePoint Portal Server 2003 is very CPU
intensive with its crawling and indexing functions. Microsoft Office Project Server 2003 is just as intensive
for its publishing and VWnotify services.
Note Running these services at the same time on the same server may
create conflicts. For example, some of the conflicts that may occur
- Excessive memory usage
- Excessive paging to the hard disk drive
- Service performance degradation
- One service delaying the start of the other service
