Sharepoint and Project Central Server on the same Machine

  Asked By: Taylor    Date: Aug 11    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1149

has anyone got any experiences with Project Central Server and Sharepoint
working on the same machine. Project Central uses SQL 2000 Server as
database and IIS as Webserver. I have installed both (Prjct Ctrl and SQL
2000) on a testmachine together with SPS and it seems to work but I am not
quite sure for how long;o) The other possibility would be to install SQL
2000 on a different machine and leave Central Server on the SPS machine, but
I guess this would slow down performance.

I installed Project server  and SPS on the same machine  by I used SQL server
an a separate server.

For those of you used that want to test different software on the same box,
I recommend using a software from vmware http://www.vmware.com
<http://www.vmware.com> that allows to create virtual machine without
disrupting your main box. I installed VMMare on my Windows XP workstation
and I am running SPS and Project Central in a virtual machine running
Windows 2000 Server. Performance are well above what I would have ever
expected and it works very well for testing

I bet you don't have 128MB in that workstation.
VMWare rocks if you want to test or play with applications. You can even
setup a cluster on your desktop.

640Mb but it still rocks, the best tool to test beta or others
