Project Server 2010 | Removing orphan baseline

By | April 29, 2013

Orphan baseline prevents Project Server 2010 report publishing queue to complete its job. In our environment it was caused by sudden disconnection of either client or SQL server during the publish command. I search arround internet and found following discussion on orphan baseline : http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/projectserver/en-US/f4d638ad-003e-421c-85d9-7ed5d7fda029/project-server-2007-error-24006-reportingprojectchangemessagefailed-insert-statement-conflicted .

The solution suggested by that discussion is:

delete 
from MSP_TASK_BASELINES
where MSP_TASK_BASELINES.PROJ_UID ='[PROJECT UID]' 
AND MSP_TASK_BASELINES.TASK_UID NOT IN
 (
select TASK_UID 
from dbo.MSP_TASKS 
where PROJ_UID ='[PROJECT UID]'
)

For me, I believe that any TASK_UID not in TASK_UID of MSP_TASKS table are orphan baseline. So, change the above SQL statement to below statement will clear off  any orphan baseline in EPM

delete from MSP_TASK_BASELINES
where  MSP_TASK_BASELINES.TASK_UID NOT IN (select TASK_UID from dbo.MSP_TASKS )

Execute the above script for *_Draft and *_Published database of your EPM.

To prevent the same problem in the future, you have to install latest CU for Project Server as well as SharePoint Server.
