Registering Server Side Event Handler - PS2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have to use Server Side Events to start some actions after the StatusUpdated  event.

    I wrote my event Handler, and it works perfectly on my development environment: standalone Project Server (

    Problems start when I want to make it work on the production environment: it's impossible to register my event handler...
    This Project Server instance is built on a 4 servers farm (2 WFE and 2 AS) and a DB server.
    I tried the following things:

    - Deployment in GAC through a WSP solution. After installation, my assembly, with the correct version, is in the GAC.
    - Deployment in the C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Servers\14.0\Bin\ProjectServerEventHandlers folder. On the MSDN, this method is recommanded for production env. (this method works fine in my dev env)

    After deployment, I try to register through 3 methods:

    - normal method in PWA
    - Powershell script found here: by setting the EventID to 137
    - Through the LoggerAdmin application found somewhere on a MS blog

    No of these methods works. No trace on the ULS nor the Eventlog, nothing. I can refresh my PWA screen as I want, the Event list is definitively empty.

    I also tried with an empty event Handler, or with another event...No result, and I think I will start to be crazy ;-)

    It looks like my Project Event Service would not work for custom event handlers. I tried to restart it many times.

    So if somebody could give my some ideas, it would be really great !

    Thank you

  • Hi,

    I have the same issue, can anybody please advise where all should I deploy my event handler code in a 3-tier EPM architecture (2WFEs and 2Apps)?
