Project server 2007 installation on a different server than application server RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi,

    I have a requirement wherein in a server farm I only want to install moss 2007 on the application server. There is a separate server on which I only want to install Project Server 2007.

    When I tried doing it its not able to connect to the application server.

    Please let me know whether such scenario of having Project server 2007 installed on a separate server is possible for a farm.

  • So you want one farm.  The farm will consist of three servers:

    1 X WFE

    1 X App Server

    1 X SQL Server

    No other WFE will be connected to this farm.  This farm will not be linked to any other farm in your environment.

    Typically, I might suggest combining the App Server and the WFE in this case to make a two tier deployment, but that depends on your requirements.  I would start with this article, and then follow the links to the relevant follow on articles:

  • Not sure I follow your description.  You want a farm with a Web Front End
    (WFE) and an App Server on the back end sharing MOSS Services (such as Search,
    Project Server, etc.) or do you want two farms, one with MOSS and one with
    Project Server?
     
    Note if the first that any MOSS farm with Project Server will require a license
    for all servers in the farm.
     
    Perhaps you could provide more information on why you're trying to design
    it the way you are?

  • There is only one farm which has many WFEs.

    usually what I used to do earlier was to setup Project Server in Shared Services in Application server and then connect WFEs to it.

    So Project Server being a part of Shared Service used to be installed on Application server.

    However, now due to change in requirement I want one WFE to only contain Project Server and then connect it to Application server. The constraint with this is that I am unable to connect the Project Server WFE to Application Server.

    Also, when I tried setting up Shared Services on a WFE apart from Application Server, then too its throwing error.

    I read somewhere that Shared Services could be configured on a separate server as compared to the application Server. However, I am unable to understad how?
