How to close for good a Project 2007 Workspace? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    After a migration from Project Server 2007 to Project Server 2010, I need to close for good the project workspaces on old 2007 version. How can I do that?

  • On the old server, in Server Settings, go to the Delete Enterprise Objects section.  At a minimum, delete the project from the Published database (you may want to delete it from all dtabases outright as well.)  When you do this, make sure to check the box that allows you to delete the SharePoint project workspace.

    Good luck!

  • Hi,

    I depends on what your mean by close? If you want to keep the sites intact in the 2007 instance, then you can change the access permissions on the sites to restrict access to view / update / modify content, allowing them still to be viewed for reference purposes, whilst stopping users actually modifying the content.

    However, if you have migrated all the workspaces to 2010 and verified the content migration, then surely an option is to backup and then decommission the 2007 instance?

  • Thanks Alex,

    To restrict access to only "view" the old workspaces content, do I have to do that site by site?
