Chapter 17. Installing and Configuring Project Server

IN THIS CHAPTER

  • Reviewing requirements

  • Installing peripheral software

  • Setting up Windows security accounts

  • Installing Project Server and Windows SharePoint Services

  • Connecting to Project Server through Project Web Access

  • Troubleshooting your installation

This chapter is aimed at IT administrators — the people who handle the hardware and software setup. If you're an everyday user or a project manager, you probably won't enjoy this chapter very much and you're welcome to skip it.

To install and use Project Server, you must install certain software—and, in some cases, the software that you install depends on the features of Project Server that you decide to use. The hardware that you use must also meet some basic specifications. And you need to consider the user and network environment in which you will run Project Server to maximize performance.

In this chapter, you read about the software that you need, the basic hardware specifications, and the network issues that affect Project Server performance. You also find some sample hardware configurations that you may consider, given your user and network environment. You work through installing peripheral software, at that point, you're ready to install Project Server and Windows SharePoint Services and configure Tarm services. And finally, a troubleshooting section appears at the end of this chapter that addresses some of the techniques you can use to address performance issues.
