Project Server 2010 hotfix package:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2553047

We recommend that you test hotfixes before you deploy them in a production environment. Because the builds are cumulative, each new release contains all the hotfixes and security updates that were included with the previous Project Server 2010 update package releases.

Issues that this hotfix package fixes
  • When you apply updates on a completed task that does not have an actual start date, task scheduling fails in Project Server 2010.
  • Assume that you first set a large value for the actual work on a material assignment in Project Server 2010. Then, you reduce the value. In this case, the actual work is saved incorrectly for the material resource.
  • Assume that you click Send to submit a timesheet in Project Server 2010. You click Send again when the timesheet is being processed in the queue. In this case, a TimesheetIncorrectMode error occurs.
  • Task scheduling fails in Project Server 2010 if a project contains links to tasks that do not exist.
  • Consider the following scenario:
    • You have a project that has a material resource.
    • The material resource is assigned to a task.
    • The material resource has no cost.
    • The cost accrual is set to the start of the assignment.

    In this scenario, task scheduling fails in Project Server 2010.

  • The scheduling feature changes a task’s start date to an earlier date under certain conditions. This issue may cause task scheduling to fail in Project Server 2010.
  • Assume that you open a timesheet for a future period of time. Then, you click Save. In this case, additional lines are added into the timesheet.
  • You may experience one or more of the following issues in Project Server 2010:
    • When you update a timesheet line, you may receive the following error message:

      An unhandled exception occurred in Microsoft.Office.Project.Server.BusinessLayer.Statuing.StatusingSendGridUpdatesForNodeConsistency.

    • When you save a timesheet, the queue job fails. Additionally, the following message is logged in the Unified Logging Service (ULS) log:

      assert – resume_computation error.

  • When a project manager makes a change to an assignment in Project Server 2010, resources receive an email message notification even if the assignment is completed.
  • The reporting database update job fails in Project Server 2010. Therefore, other jobs that are marked with "waiting to be processed" that follow the update job in the queue are auto canceled.
  • When you click the This is an Enterprise Project. Click this icon to open the Project for editing in Project Professional icon to open a project in read/write mode in the Project Center, the project opens in read-only mode.
  • You cannot use the QueueUpdateProject project server interface (PSI) to change a project owner if you do not have Save permission in Project Server 2010.
