Seems like there has been an insurgence of people upgrading their phones from Windows Phone 7 to Windows Phone 8
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?

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): Continue reading “Advanced Restoring of Microsoft Project Server 2010 Databases” »

First of all a Big Kudos go out to the Project 2010 product team for building and making the Microsoft Project Server 2010 – Virtual Machine publicly available. If you haven’t downloaded the virtual machine image yet, here’s where you can get it:
Now the really nice thing about this VM image is that it’s already preconfigured and ready to go and comes with a VERY detailed demo script that covers a lot material. Let’s fast forward a bit… You’ve gone through the demo script and really like all the new features, heck you might even be asked to do your own demo for your fellow colleagues or God-forbid, the Management Team or Executives.
But the good news is they like it too and all agree that you need to do a “Proof-of-Concept” or “Pilot” for the organization, but obviously you won’t be able to use the pre-configured Contoso PWA instance as it won’t be the same configuration as your organization.
So what are your options?

So I’m working on an EPM project in a virtualized Dev environment. Creating custom fields, defining security groups, etc., etc. and also creating some enterprise calendars for specific countries (US, Canada, England and Australia) that included their national/regional holidays. Took a fair bit of time getting it right (especially with the Aussie calendars)

I do a fair bit of consulting / training and in order to cut down the installation and updating time, I’ve slipstreamed SP2 and the Cumulative Updates into my RTM bits. Because there’s no sense getting started with the configuration until the infrastructure is rock solid. So I have decided to post my Graphical Step-by-Step procedure. Here it is:
In this procedure I will be using Project Server 2007 RTM bits, but you can substitute for MOSS 2007 RTM bits. Either one will work. Also the folder names I use can be changed to whatever suites your needs. Just make sure that you can tell the x86 and x64 bits apart
