Hi,

yes this is possible and we have just done this for a customer. BUT: the possible technical migration path is SO complicated that we decided to install Project Server 2013 as a new system, then transferred all Enterprise fields, projects and resources via export/import/files.

The technical way would be: migrate 2002 to 2003 (in-place, same server), then migrate 2003 to 2007 (needs a second server with EPM 2007 installed), then migrate 2007 to 2010 (needs another server with 2010 installed), then migrate 2010 to 2013 (and again this needs another server installed)! Server nightmare, not worth it.

Hope this helps

Thomas

Hi Thomas!

Thank you very much :) I'll test a new system at first.
Don't you know if it works if we install everything it needs on a standalone server?
MS Project should not be overloaded, as we have about 100 projects with
about 60 resources.

Kind regards,
Evgeniy.

You mean to install all components for Project Server 2013 on a single box? Yes, this works, just make sure you have min. of 12 GB RAM (better more) available as you know that you need SQL Server, SharePoint Server and Project Server all running at the same time.
