Upgrading Project Server 2003 to Project Server 2007

Few days back I was looking for ways to upgrade Project Server 2003 to PS 2007 but there is no step by step guide on how to do that.  During the holidays I got a chance to do a test migration and create a step by step guide.  I hope this guide will help people do Project Server migration hands on

  1. Login with domain or local Administrator
  2. Install Windows Server 2003 Service pack 1 or two

  1. Click Next

  1. Click I Agree and click Next
