Project Server 2010: June CU–Possible timesheet issue


*** Update 7/12 – the June CU for Project Server 2010 has been re-released – please note the new KB numbers,  If anyone installed the earlier release they are strongly advised to install this new release. ***

*** Update 7/1 – Hopefully we will be re-releasing the June CU for Project Server 2010 sometime next week assuming all goes to plan ***

I maybe sounding the alarm bells too soon, and of course you all test Cumulative Updates before deploying to production, right?  But we have seen a few cases so far where after applying the June 2013 CU for Project Server 2010 is leading to timesheet submit problems.  The timesheet submit will go into a failed and blocking state and clicking the error will give something like:

GeneralQueueJobFailed (26000) – TimesheetSubmit.SubmitTimesheetMessage. Details: id=’26000′ name=’GeneralQueueJobFailed’ uid=’52eb835f-ed3f-44a5-92d0-3bb6c2e11c5b’ JobUID=’163bf55d-cc5b-40c8-ae72-e4d6a310775f’ ComputerName=’<Servername>’GroupType=’TimesheetSubmit’ MessageType=’SubmitTimesheetMessage’ MessageId=’1′ Stage=”. For more details, check the ULS logs on machine <servername> for entries with JobUID 163bf55d-cc5b-40c8-ae72-e4d6a310775f.

I’ll add some ULS log entries that might help tracking later.

More information once we have it… and sorry for any inconvenience this is causing.

 

*** More news – this appears to relate to customers in Single Entry Mode where timesheets contain lines that have no data entered. We are working on a fix, but no timelines as I write.  A couple of workarounds we have tried internally –

  • if you add some time to each row (0.01 will do) then the submission will work. Admin tasks with no time are OK.
  • Just send status so that at least you can get the progress on the project
  • Turn off Single Entry Mode – probably not a great workaround as you would need to import timesheet to My Tasks

More info as we have it ***

    Is this an issue also with Project Server 2013?

  2. No TB, this just affected the 2010 release.  The 2013 is fine, and has now been released.

    Best regards,

    The issue is still there in our environment, after installing the corrected CU of june 2013 (KB.

  4. Hi JB, could you elaborate?  We often fix things that have fairly generic error messages – but the fix will be very specific.  Sounds like you are hitting a different issue that we have not yet addressed – best to open a support incident so we can dig deeper.

    Are you referring to the issue with the original CU release and timesheet submission?  Did you re-run the configuration wizard?

    Best regards,

    Brian.
