Thought of sharing these Q&A from one of the webcasts
Q: What is the risk of applying the December Cumulative Update on the server but not on the client? Is it highly recommended to always keep them in sync, or is it acceptable to have some clients that are not patched to the same CU as the server?
Q: Ref 30900 – the fix relating to custom calendars – is that custom enterprise calendar, or custom calendar in template, or both?
Q: The Save Error 9000 is a very generic message. Can you repeat the exact issue for which this fix was designed?
Q: In regards to Timesheets in Single Entry Mode, if a timesheet is submitted and accepted with actuals against 3 projects, and later one of those projects is deleted, and then someone deletes that timesheet and attempts to create a replacement timesheet, currently that results in an error. (The timesheet line items from the deleted projects still remain and seem to stop the new timesheet from being created.) Does this CU address this? The issue is that there is an “orphan” timesheet line record.
Q: You spoke about graphical indicators disappearing occasionally after changes have been made to their enterprise field definitions. Are there other graphical indicator problems…. such as enterprise fields showing incorrect indicators after changes made to their field definitions? I experienced some problems in one of my deployments but I believe the issue was a wrong indicator not a missing indicator. The problem seems to have gone away when I created new fields in the production site. Forum postings gave me the impression the December CU would address this. Any comments on the status? Are all of these graphical indicator problems resolved now?
Q: I know that for Project Server 2007 there was a tool (P12ACTool) that could be run against the environment that would check for standard issues behind the scenes and provide steps for resolving those issues. This was used in my past as a preventative step to keeping the environment up to par. Is there a similar tool for Project Server 2010?
Q: What is the status of the fix for the 2010 client issue with “Save and Send” where the data is not actually saved to the Server?
Q: We have a couple of different 2010 client machines running the Oct and Dec CU, and the links between tasks are vanishing and then reappearing, resource usage view is jumping around between resources when modifying planned time phased actual work, and indicators in the status line (at the bottom) are vanishing – is this a known issue? (not seen it prior to August client CU for 2010)
Q: Should you be able to update Actual Start in the Project Center views in edit mode
Q: Are either of you going to be at the Project Conference?
Q: This is a general Project Server config question: Is there a way to report time a the high level and not at task level because we just record total time of a project? Meaning entering the time
Q: Not really project related but I recently downloaded a few of the past webcasts in wma format. But I can’t sync any of these to my Zune. Any suggestions?
Q: What is the correct way to submit a Design Change Request? Is there a website we can go to directly?
