W3WP crash on syncing workitem update to Project Server

Nov 15, 2007 at 6:44 PM
Hello!

I have successfully connected a TFS and a Project Server Project including the assignments.
When I update an workitem in TFS (entering actual work), this workitem shows up in the list of workitems to be approved in the TFS connector. I approve it and some seconds later a w3wp process crashes.
The project association is locked afterwards and the updates do not show up in project server.

These are the errors I get:

Microsoft.Vsts.Ranger.Connector.PS2007Providers.ExceptionHandling.PS2007WorkItemStoreException was unhandled
Message: Unable to save assignments

Timestamp: 11/15/2007 7:28:52 PM

and a .NET Runtime 2.0 Error with EventID 5000:
EventType clr20r3, P1 w3wp.exe, P2 6.0.3790.3959, P3 45d6968e, P4 microsoft.vsts.ranger.connector.ps2007providers, P5 1.0.0.0, P6 46963719, P7 dd, P8 1ed, P9 150kuqa02kududulzcxaalj5gspipj25, P10 NIL.

I already created new projects and new associations. The same error messages.

Does anyone know a reason / solution?

Thanks

There should also be an issue logged before "Unable to save assignments". Can you tell me what it is?
Usually, this occurs beciase authorization to the statusing API has not been properly configured or the incorrect SSPUrl or SiteGuid is configured for the Connector.
