Cause

You move a project database from an off-site computer to a customer site computer, when a project cannot be deployed from an off-site computer.

Resolution

  1. On the source computer, in WorkStation for Projects, ensure that the project is backed up. For more information, see Checking the Backup Status of a Server .
  2. Close WorkStation for Projects.

  3. Wait 5 minutes to ensure that the project is closed.

    • A project closes 5 minutes after the last user has logged off.
     
    •  When multiple users are working with the Project Configuration Server, make sure a stop of the Project Configuration Server Windows service does not negatively affect your projects before closing.
     
  4. In Software Administrator, in the Project Configuration Server tab, copy the path of the Projects folder.

  5. In Windows Explorer, in the Address box, paste the path of the Projects folder.

  6. Move the individual project folder to a USB drive or to another appropriate media.

  7. On the target computer, in Software Administrator, in the Project Configuration Server tab, copy the path of the Projects folder.

  8. In Windows Explorer, in the Address box, paste the path of the Projects folder.

  9. Move the individual project folder from the USB drive to the Projects folder.

The project can now be opened in WorkStation for Projects on the target computer

Make sure that the versions on both PCS servers is the same.
