There are two options for deploying Project Web App, either you can create a Project Web App site as the top level of a new site collection, or you can add a Project Web App site to an existing site collection.
It is recommended to create separate Database for the project server
After creating the content Database, it will be better to lock it to prevent SharePoint form adding additional site collection to the database.
, make sure you are using the correct database by running the following
Get-SPSite -ContentDatabase <projectserverdatabase name>
In the Database Capacity Settings section:
- In the Number of sites before a Warning event is generated box, type 0.
- In the Maximum number of sites that can be created in this database box, type 1.
