Cannot see any projects

Jun 20, 2008 at 10:51 PM
In the connector web interface, i cannot see any projects in the project configuration drop-down and I have 7 published project on Project Server.

I have the 2 box setup: 1 (tfs 2008+sql server 2005+connector), 2(Project server 2007+wss 3.0)

I have followed the install instructions precisely and have tried to perform the installation twice with the same results.

I fixed my problem. It was really silly. In Project Server, I had set the global permissions for the service account with the Administrators template, but have forgotten to also include it in the Administrators Security group. So, even thou the account could do everything administratively, even change it's own security group associations or delete any project, it could not see published projects in Project Center. Kind of weird, but I am just glad it's working now.

I have the same symptoms, but it doesn't seem to be the same cause.

See here http://jing.bloommedia.co.uk/capture/2009*01-15_1722.png   (replace the * with a - for the URL to work)

My setup is similar - 2 servers : 1 (Win 2K3 x32, tfs 2008 SP1 + connector) 2 (Win 2k8 x64, project server 2007, + wss3.0 + SQL 2008)

I've checked the error logs, there's nothing alarming in the TFS or Sharepoint Server logs.  I've also double checked the connector install logs on both servers and all seems to have gone well.

I have noticed however that when publishing the Project, there are some errors relating to TFS which weren't there before I installed the connector, so must be related?

I have had a couple like this

It seems that there is some component which can't be seen or accessed.   I absolutly stuck with this one.  Can anyone help?
