  • 1. The Enterprise Resource Pool failed to sychronize
    Hello all, PLEASE I'm going nuts here. I'm trying to synchronize Project Server 2003's enterprise resource pool with an Active Directory group. From the web client running from the server console I go to: Admin->Server configuration-> Active Directory Group to Synchronize I have a group name from Active directory containing only alpha characters without spaces. I click on "Update Now" and shortly receive a message stating: "The Active Directory group failed to sychronize with the Enterprise Resource Pool on <date> <time>. In the Application log I receive: Component: AD Connector File: AutoADProcess Line: -1 Description: <Description><![CDATA[AD Res Pool Sync - failed to open the Ent. Res. Pool]]></Description> Any assistance or insigt would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all
  • 2. Outline field lookup
    Hi, Just updated to Project 2002 and have a question about custom outline field look ups. In 2000, when you used the dropdown listbox to pick a custom field value from the look up table, both the name and the description were displayed for choosing. In 2002, it seems that only the name is displayed (in an folder-type view) but not the description. Is this an option I can turn on? Tony
  • 3. project server and SharePoint Portal ?
    Hello Guys, I Just installed Project sever 2003 as well as SharePoint Portal 2003 on Win2003. I can connect to Project web site, as well as SharePoint Portal Admin site. The problems occur when I try to hit default Share point Portal site - I'm getting this error : Cannot connect to the configuration database. When I was installing stuff all DBs were created ok, I can see them from SQL 2000 server. Accounts also looks like fine. Any ideas what is wrong here? Thanks S

predecessors and successors

Postby Ingrid » Wed, 30 Jul 2003 15:57:53 GMT

I am using 4 project files linked to each other in a master
file.  The predecessors and successors don't seem to have
any pattern for when they appear and when they don't.  Eg.
a task in one project(project A) may have three successors
in another one (project B), yet only two show up in project
A in the task list of a gantt chart.  

I've tried turning the "show external sucessors" on and off
in Tools>Options but this doesn't actually hide them all or
show them all - I still get some showing and some not

Any ideas how to get some consistency with these?

I think that if all the subprojects are expanded then you will see the
But other than that, I find that they are somewhat capricious.

2.External Predecessors and Successors

I have many External Predecessors and Successors within my schedules.
When looking at Tools, Options, View - Cross project linking options for

3.Display Predecessor and Successor Task Names

I want to display for each task row any predecessor and successor task names 
that the task has.
I want to do this because the procject is relatively large.
I think I should use a customized text field. However, I am unsure how to 
code the formula to pull the task name.
Any advice would be appreciated.

4.synching predecessor and successor dates based on F-S link

Hi folks,

I'm working with MSP2003 and PS2003.  I have a project with afew tasks that have predecessor - successor relationships.  They are F-S.  Some have a lag, some have a lead time, some have neither.  The issue I have is that when the finish date changes for a predecessor task, the start date for the successor remains unchanged.  I've checked the calculation settings and it is set to recalculate automatically.

For example

Task 115 is a predecessor for task 117.  T115's end date is June 28.  T117's start date is June 30.  If I change T115's end date to July 7, the startdate for T117 remains set to June 30.

Thanks for any insights.
