SUMMARY

SharePoint Team Services, a superset of Microsoft FrontPage Server Extensions 2002, can be integrated with Microsoft Project Server to provide both Web publishing and collaboration features (for example, Microsoft Project Web Access Documents and Issues) to make communicating and sharing project information easier. When you integrate SharePoint Team Services with Microsoft Project Server, SharePoint Team Services is treated as a component of the server, instead of as a stand-alone program. Microsoft Project Server Setup automatically configures SharePoint Team Services, but some manual configuration and administration may also be required.

This article discusses the following methods that are used when you configure SharePoint Team Services for Microsoft Project Server on Microsoft Windows 2000:
  • How to Install SharePoint Team Services for Microsoft Project Server
  • How to Configure SharePoint Team Services for Microsoft Project Web Access
  • How to Connect SharePoint Team Services in Microsoft Project Web Access

MORE INFORMATION

To configure SharePoint Team Services for Microsoft Project Server, use the following methods in the order that they are presented.

How to Install SharePoint Team Services for Microsoft Project Server

The installation of SharePoint Team Services for Microsoft Project Server is completed by the SharePoint Configuration Wizard (the Stswiz.exe file ) from the Microsoft Project Server CD-ROM. If you try to connect to a Web site based on SharePoint Team Services (that is installed on a computer running Microsoft Office XP) for Microsoft Project Server, you must run the SharePoint Configuration Wizard before you can integrate your existing Web site based on SharePoint Team Services to Microsoft Project Server. The SharePoint Configuration Wizard adds additional components for use and connectivity to Microsoft Project Server, such as the Public Documents folder and Issues templates, and does not remove your existing subwebs.

To install SharePoint Team Services, a SQL Authenticated Administration account is required for the installation portion. After you run the SharePoint Configuration Wizard, you receive a confirmation message. Note and save the information that is contained in the confirmation message. You will use this information at a later time to connect SharePoint Team Services in Microsoft Project Web Access.

How to Configure SharePoint Team Services for Microsoft Project Web Access

After you successfully install SharePoint Team Services and you receive the confirmation message from the Stswiz.exe file, perform the following additional steps to connect Microsoft SharePoint Team Services during the Microsoft Project Server Setup.

Note You can complete these steps during the Microsoft Project Server Setup, or when you connect to Microsoft Project Web Access.
  • Grant administrative permissions to the Microsoft SharePoint server for the Microsoft Windows user account for Microsoft SharePoint.
  • Grant the Windows user account that has the db_datareader role for the Microsoft SharePoint database in Microsoft SQL Server the appropriate user rights on the computer with Microsoft SQL Server installed.
  • Run the PSComplus.exe. file. (This step is only required if you postpone the connection of SharePoint Team Services during Microsoft Project Server Setup.)
  • Run the WinHTTP proxy configuration utility (the ProxyCfg.exe file). (This step is only required if you postpone the connection of SharePoint Team Services during Microsoft Project Server Setup.)

How to Connect SharePoint Team Services in Microsoft Project Web Access

To connect SharePoint Team Services in Microsoft Project Web Access, enter your Microsoft SharePoint Server, port, and database information during the installation process of Microsoft Project Server, or when you connect to Microsoft Project Web Access.

Use the following steps when you connect SharePoint Team Services after Microsoft Project Server Setup is finished:
  1. Start Microsoft Internet Explorer, and then enter your Microsoft Project Server Uniform Resource Locator (URL).
  2. Log on to Microsoft Project Server by using an Administrator account.
  3. Click Admin, and then click Manage SharePoint Team Services.
  4. On the Connect to Servers page, click Add Server.
  5. Enter the server information as appropriate for your server.

    Note The information required for your server is provided to you in the confirmation message that you received after you run the SharePoint Configuration Wizard. Depending on your server configuration, the SharePoint Server Name may be your server name, IPAddress, or fully qualified domain name (FQDN).
  6. Click Save Changes.
Note If the connection is not established or is broken, usability features, automatically or manually created subwebs, and the Documents and Issues feature are affected in Microsoft Project Web Access. You can verify if the connection is not established or is broken by clicking Save Changes.
