Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.



In P6 Professional connected to a SQL Server database, when a large project is being copied (copy/paste operation), if the user Schedules a different project, the Project Schedule job does not start until the project copy operation, completes due to an exclusive lock on the database by the copy/paste procedure.


The Schedule Project job should run while the project copy job is running.

The issue can be reproduced at will using the following steps

  1. Log into P6 Professional.
  2. Copy/paste a large project.
  3. Schedule a different project.
  4. The Schedule job remains in Pending status until the copy/paste completes.
