This article describes how to install Microsoft Office Project Server 2007 with Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007.

ImportantImportant:
Before installing Office Project Server 2007 or Office SharePoint Server 2007, it is very important to thoroughly plan for the deployment. For information on planning for Office Project Server 2007, see Planning and architecture for Office Project Server 2007. For information on planning for Office SharePoint Server 2007, see Planning and architecture for Office SharePoint Server 2007.
ImportantImportant:
There is a known issue when installing Office Project Server 2007 in a Office SharePoint Server 2007 farm with over 2,000 site collections that affects the "Issues & Risks" Web Part in Project Web Access. See Project Server 2007 Web Part performance for information on mitigating this issue.

A major benefit of integrating Office Project Server 2007 with Office SharePoint Server 2007 is the other capabilities offered by Office SharePoint Server 2007, such as:

  • Workflow functionality. If you plan on using the automated proposals feature in Office Project Server 2007, you need the workflow functionality provided through Office SharePoint Server 2007. For more information about project proposals and other Office Project Server 2007 features, see What's new in Office Project 2007. For more information about workflow functionality in Office SharePoint Server 2007, see What are workflows? and Understanding workflow.

  • Rich business intelligence and dashboard capabilities in the Project Server Report Center when used with Excel Services. For more information, see Plan for business intelligence.

  • Easier Windows SharePoint Services workspace administration with the features in the document management system. For more information, see Plan document management.

  • Richer search capabilities. For more information, see Plan search (Office SharePoint Server).

There are three different deployment scenarios when integrating Office Project Server 2007 with Office SharePoint Server 2007:

We do not support using Inter-Farm Shared Services to merge an existing Office SharePoint Server 2007 farm with an existing Office Project Server 2007 farm while retaining the deployments on the same hardware configuration. This is due to functionality, performance, and security issues that can occur when Office Project Server 2007 is deployed in this manner.

As an alternative, you should use the following general steps to merge the two farms:

ImportantImportant:
You must follow the steps in the order provided.
  1. Install Office Project Server 2007 on the Office SharePoint Server 2007 farm. For more information, see Deploy Project Server 2007 to an existing deployment of Office SharePoint Server 2007.

  2. Migrate Office Project Server 2007 sites and workspaces from the Office Project Server 2007 farm to the Office SharePoint Server 2007 farm (on which you just installed Project Server 2007). For information on migrating Office Project Server 2007 data, see Back up and restore the Project Server 2007 farm.

  3. Disconnect the Office Project Server 2007 farm from its Configuration database. You can do this by rerunning the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard on all servers in the farm and selecting the option to disconnect from the farm.

  4. Install Office SharePoint Server 2007 on the computers on which you disconnected Office Project Server 2007 from the Configuration database. When running post-setup configuration, connect to the Configuration database being used on the farm in step 1. For more information about installing Office SharePoint Server 2007 on a Office Project Server 2007 farm, see Deploy Office SharePoint Server 2007 to an existing deployment of Project Server 2007.

The final results will be a single farm with Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Office Project Server 2007, spanning servers from both farms.
