Project server Installation on SharePoint 2016


Project server installation

Project Server 2016 runs as a service application under SharePoint Server 2016. It is included as part of the SharePoint Server 2016 Enterprise installation, though it is licensed separately

Project Server 2016 requires a license in order to operate, and you must enable Project Server 2016 by using your license key before you can create a Project Web App site.

(If you are not sure if Project Server 2016 has already been enabled, use the Get-ProjectServerLicense cmdlet to check.)

To activate Project Server 2016

First, make sure that it is not enabled

Open the SharePoint admin shell

Make sure to run as admin

This means I have no license yet

Run the following command

Enable-ProjectServerLicense -Key <LicenseKey>

Creating a service application

Project Server 2016 runs as a service application in SharePoint Server 2016, so the first thing to do is check to see if you already have a Project Server Service Application configured.

Check for a Project Server Service Application

  1. In the SharePoint Central Administration website, under Application Management, click Manage service applications.
  2. Check the service applications list for a Project Server Service Application.

Now the service application is created

Now it will give you the following error if you try to open

You must go to the following in the central admin

Service must be started

It must be started

Now it is started

Now it’s working
