Project Server: Migrating Project Server Settings with Project Resource Kit (PRK) Tool

I recently discovered a utility, called PRK tool, to export all the project server settings from Development to Production environment. Often times, when exploring new features I tend to work on development server, ensure that it works, document it and then make a similar change on Production environment. Now with this PRK tool, I am saving tons to time and also backing up server settings on regular basis.

Download from Microsoft Download Center. Few screenshots of PRK Tool is shown below:

If you get the following error while trying to backup the server security settings, you’ll need a copy of Microsoft.Office.Project.Server.Library in the same directory as the PRK tools. It ships in the Project SDK.

ERROR: Could not load file or assembly ‘Microsoft.Office.Project.Server.Library, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c’ or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

This tool should ease a lot of migration headaches for Administrators.
