Connecting MS Project Manager 2007 to Project Server 2007

Hello guys,

I’m having an issue with Project Manager 2007 connecting to Project Server 2007. Allow me to give the scenarios;

Very small network (22 user’s total)

(2) Windows 2003 Enterprise Server SP1

Server1 = DC, File Server, Print Server, Terminal Server, Remote Access/VPN Server, DC, DNS Server, DHCP Server, WINS Server.

Server2 = Taken Offline for now.

Server3 = File Server, Application Server, Terminal Server, SQL 2000, SQL 2005 (We aren’t using SQL 2005 just yet on any applications)
•      This Server runs the Project Server 2007 + Windows Share Point Services + SQL 2000 databases.  (Office Project Server 2007 with Service Pack 1)
•      Project Web Access URL = http://server3:1057/pwa 

All users can use IE and connect to http://server3:1057/pwa w/o any issues. It authenticates users w/o any problems, and each user’s name is reported in the top right Welcome sign in message. They each can perform the duties to their permissions given in the Web Access of this site.

(The PWA Admin (FarmAcct) and two other users I needed to be admin’s can connect to http://server3:1057/pwa and to the Project Central Administration site. They three can also connect to the http://server3/1057/pwa via MS Project Manager 2007.

***My issue is: none of the other users can connect via MS Project Manager 2007! I have checked the credentials under Enterprise Options to make sure the correct URL is set, also just for kicks, made sure they are logging into the Domain….

When each user other then the FarmAcct + 2 other users with Administrative permissions try to login using MS Project 2007, they get the below error:

Could not access Enterprise Global

Possible reasons:
*You do not have sufficient permissions to access the Enterprise Global.
*There is a problem with the Enterprise Global in the database.
If the problem persist, contact your administrator

So, I’m lost now, so looking for some help.

I believe I just solved the problem. Under "Global Permissions" I noticed "Log on to Project Server from Project Professional" wasn't check to either "Allow" nor "Deny", and I selected "Allow". This enabled all my users using Project Pro 2007 to connect. I'll leave this open just in case someone thinks I shouldn't "Allow" this permission.
