Error when navigating to the PWA root site for Project Server 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I received a nice Happy New Year from my Project Server 2010 today. I tried to navigate to the root site and received the following error.

     

    Error

    The base type 'Microsoft.Office.Project.PWA.PJBaseWebPartPage' is not allowed for this page. The type is not registered as safe.

    Troubleshoot issues with Microsoft SharePoint Foundation.

    I did some searching and found that it could be one of 2 things

    1.       App Pool security

    2.       Custom Master page.

    All the sub-sites seem to work fine, so I went with option 2. I changed the Master page of the root site back to v4.master and everything works fine again.

    So far the only solution I found to allow for using a Custom master page is to modify the web.config as suggested here: http://jimecox.wordpress.com/2011/05/03/project-server-2010-changing-master-page/

    My custom master was working fine for the past 6 months, so I’m not sure why I need to make this new update.

    Anyone else run into this recently with another fix? The changes seem to be opening the security on the Project web app a bit or am I wrong?

    Thank you in Advance!

  • Looks like I fixed this by changing the Master page back to the OOTB version v4.master here:

    https://<pwa url>/_Layouts/ChangeSiteMasterPage.aspx
    


    Then I navigated to the PWA root site.

    https://<pwa url>/default.aspx
    

    Finally changed the master page back to my custom one. Error gone!

  • That totally worked thanks Peter :) Scratch that.. it works for a while but this is not a perm fix. every once in awhile it happens again and you have to go thru and reset it again.
