Hello Project Server gurus,

i have a serious problem, yesterday we try to restore the full farm back of main prodcution envrinoment to our development envirnoment. Its restore the suceesfully but i project server workspace failed to provisioned.

I tried this process 3 to 4 times every time its failed to provision. i am writing down the steps which may clear the stuff you people.

1)I take full back from production servers (1 APP & 1 Backend database)
2) copy the backup files to the development servers (1 APP & 1 Backend database)
3) run the Sharepoint product and techonlogy wizards and dissconnect the server from server farm.
4) delete all database which were left undeleted in SQL Server.
5) Reset the IIS
6) run the Sharepoint the prodcut and techonolgy wizrad and creat a new server farm and coonect tot he databse.
7) After successfully creation of server farm, running the services through central admin(Project server & Search services)
8) got he operation adn click the restore from backup, giving the path, select the back verion, slecting the full farm back.
9) Choosing the new Configuration adn providing the new Database server name, Web Application URLs, Services accounts, Location of Database file.

10) its completed with 0 errors and o warnings.
11) all SSPs are recoverd and their admin site recovered and all user accounts recovered even
12) But when we go into the project workspace then in front of our URL its shows: "ailed to provisioned see logs"

i repeted this process 2 to 3 times either from stsadm or central admin.
But if i want to try create new workspace its created and working fine.
