So at the moment we’re completing a project that included migrating an existing Microsoft Sharepoint Project Server environment implementation to a different server environment with a different URL. Our goal was to get rid of the /pwa part and create an http://projects.domain.local/businessunit URL. We have read a lot about this on the internet. A lot of peope saying it’s not advised to do so, it cannot be done etc. etc. No straightforward manual how to accomplish this. Even our consulting partner said it couldn’t be done.
So in this article I’m writing how it can be done and which errors we faced. You do need Sharepoint and Project Server knowledge cause I will not include screenshots etc. If you start using this article I’m assuming you have the knowledge to create a content database and add a managed path.
