A good friend of mine, Jacob Hansen, is looking for a Senior Consultant for their corporate IT portfolio management. The focus will be on moving from reactively reporting to proactively managing and developing PMO and Sourcing processes as well as developing strategic capabilities.
But here’s the cool part…
The company is The LEGO Group in Billund, Denmark
More information on the position can be from here:
So you just installed or have a new computer with Windows 8 and you’re attempting to access Project Web Access (PWA) on Project Server 2010. You can access the PWA site, but you receive the following error when selecting the Project Center:
“This Web Part requires at least Microsoft Internet Explorer 7.0. For more information, contact your Project Server Administrator”
The same error occurs when accessing the Resource Center.
But now you’ve got your new shiny phone (in my case a Nokia Lumia 920), configured your Start Screen and Lock Screen to look just right, but now you’re missing your Apps from your old phone.
So what are you going to do?
Sure you could go to the Windows Phone Store (no longer called Marketplace) and start searching and installing all your apps manually (if you can remember them all). But that’s gonna take a lot of time.
I have a better solution and it’s REALLY COOL

Now you might be thinking to yourself, just install the Windows 8 Enterprise media and just select the Upgrade option and you should be done. Well normally you would be right except for 1 small problem…
You can’t upgrade from Windows 7 Ultimate to Windows 8 Enterprise.
Don’t believe me? Well then check out Wikipedia for yourself
So now what are you gonna do?

Have you ever attempted an PWA operation as a non-administrator and received an error message like the following:
But the million dollar question is:
What is global permission 85993afd-5430-4c0e-bdcf-12e013fa0b1e ?
Very strange situation happened in my test environment where the Project Server Administrator is denied access to some objects in the Server Settings in PWA.
In my situation I attempted to access the Active Directory Resource Pool Synchronization setting under the Operational Policies section.
Well I finally decided to upgrade my Lenovo ThinkPad W520 from Windows 7 to Windows 8 Release Preview. The upgrade worked flawlessly (thank you Microsoft!). So I’m checking out my new digs on the new OS and opened up Windows Explorer. Very nice! The new ribbon feature add great additional functionality to the tool. But I saw that there were a few new folders added ($WINDOWS.~BT and Windows.old). Naturally I assumed that it was the folders used in upgrade process.So I decided to continue and investigate more of the new functions of the OS.
In the end, the final verdict was this build was Rock Solid!!

As many of you already know, restoring a Project Server 2010 database can be done a few ways:
- SharePoint Central Administration
- SQL Server Management Studio
And this is all fine if you are restoring the database from the same server.
But what happens if you attempt to restore the databases from a different SharePoint/SQL Server and possibly from a different domain? How about working in an isolated Dev environment and wanting to restore the database into production? While this is a very unlikely scenario in a production environment, nevertheless what would happen if you had to rebuild your network domain infrastructure?
Here’s a hint: we know that Active Directory GUIDs are used for Project Server users to access PWA, so if the GUIDs are changed in any way there will be no access to PWA and would receive the following error (that includes the Administrator): Read the rest of this entry →
