You can deploy PM Central R1.8 or newer on a new Web application in SharePoint 2010 without having to reinstall the product again. Use Solution Management in Central Administration to deploy PM Central to the new Web application.
For information on creating a new Web application in Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2010, read this Microsoft article. For information on creating a new Web application in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Foundation 2010, read this Microsoft article.
To deploy PM Central R1.8 or newer on a new Web application:
1. Deploy PM Central on the New Web Application
After you have created the new Web application, navigate to Central Administration > System Settings > Manage Farm Solutions.
The list of PM Central's Web Parts is displayed.
Click each Web Part and select Deploy Solution.
In the Deploy To? section, select the new Web application from the drop-down menu and click OK.
Repeat these steps for each Web Part. All of the Web Parts must be deployed to the new Web application.
2. Reset IIS
After the Web Parts have been deployed on the new Web application, reset Internet Information Services (IIS).
- To reset IIS using IIS Manager:
- Go to Start > Administrative Tools > IIS Manager.
- In the Connections pane on the left, expand and select the node for the server you want to restart.
- In the Actions pane on the right, select Restart.
- To reset IIS using command-line utility (must be a member of the Administrators group on the local computer):
- Go to Start and click Run.
- In the Open box, type cmd and click OK.
- At the command prompt, type iisreset /noforce computername and press Enter.
3. Activate the Web Application Features
To activate the Web application features, navigate to Central Administration > Application Management > Web Applications > Manage Web Applications.
Select the new Web aplication. From the ribbon at the top, select Manage Features.
Activate Bamboo Update Task, Issue, Project Health Lists and Update Summary Project List by clicking Activate and then OK.
Note: These features are not automatically activated for new Web applications. You need to activate these features so that the timer jobs for the Bamboo Update Task, Issues, Project Health Lists and the Bamboo Update Summary Project List are created and run. There is a timer job for each Web application that you have created.
4. Create the Site Collection in the New Web Application Using a PM Central Template
Now you can create the site collection in the new Web application using one of the PM Central top-level site templates.
Navigate to Central Administration > Application Management > Site Collections > Create Site Collections.
Choose the new Web application from the drop-down menu. Enter a title, an optional description and a URL for the site. Choose the PM Central top-site template and the primary site collection administrator. Click OK.
Add your resources in the Enterprise Resource Pool, then follow the 10 Steps to Using PM Central in SharePoint 2010, beginning with Step 3.
Check the Timer Jobs
Make sure that the timer jobs for the Bamboo Update Task, Issues, Project Health Lists and the Bamboo Update Summary Project List are running for each Web application that you have created.
Navigate to Central Administration > Monitoring > Timer Jobs > Check Job Status. Under History, scroll until you see the Bamboo Update Task, Issues, Project Health Lists and the Bamboo Update Summary Project List.
If the portfolio site's Summary List and charts do not show data, or if the project site's Tasks, Issues and Project Health Lists are not updating (for example, the Project Name field in the Tasks List is blank):
1.Check if the Bamboo Update Summary Project List and the Bamboo Task, Issue, Project Health Lists timer jobs are running by navigating to Central Administration > Monitoring > Timer Jobs > Check Job Status and looking for the timer jobs under History.
2.If a timer job is not running, it does not show up in the Timer Job Status. If the timer job failed or did not initialize, it is displayed under the Timer Job Status, but the status is Failed.
To fix this, deactivate and then reactivate the timer job, or stop and start the SharePoint 2010 Timer.
- To deactivate and reactivate the timer job:
- Go to Central Administration > Application Management > Web Applications > Manage Web Applications.
- Select the new Web application and click Manage Features from the ribbon.
- Click Deactivate next to the timer job, then click Activate.
- To stop and restart the SharePoint 2010 Timer:
- From the task bar, select Server Manager.
- Under Services, select the SharePoint 2010 Timer from the list of services.
- Stop and restart the timer using the options at the top left of the menu or by right-clicking on SharePoint 2010 Timer.
3.Check the timer job again to make sure that it is running and that the portfolio and project sites now display data.
Note: The Bamboo Update Summary Project List timer job and the Bamboo Update Task, Issues, Project Health Lists timer job are set to update every 20 minutes. You can modify these jobs to run at a different schedule, such as every 5 minutes, by navigating to Central Administration > Bamboo Project Management Central > Project Central Timer Job Scheduler.
