Split PWA Site RRS feed

  • Question

  • Our PMO office decided it would be more beneficial to general operations to split our existing PWA site into 2 or 3 separate PWA sites.

    What we're most concern with transferring is the Project Site contents

    I have a feeling we will just have to build the new sites and manually transfer project files etc...

    But i was wondering if there is a more automatic process to do so.

    We're on project 2010 in a single farm configuration.

    I know i could probably do it by restoring the current PWA site to several new farms but those cost would be pretty high.

  • Hi,

    You can create more than one instances of PWA as per your requirement, and in order to move the same data you can do the 5db attach process with each of that PWA instace. This way all the data will be available to any of these new instances from start - and later you can remove the data not required while using the new PWA.

    for the database attach process, see this article: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd207290.aspx

    hope this helps.

  • If you are moving the entire project site, you could probably try back-up and restore for project sites. Check this link: http://appleparkltd.wordpress.com/2008/02/01/how-to-move-a-sub-project-workspace-to-another-programme-site/
