Environment is a single SharePoint 2007 server (MOSS) and a SQL db server farm. Once upon a time a previous SP admin installed Project Server on the SP server, but it was never used. Some action was taken so that now SharePoint sees a site collection which was obviously used for projects (obvious by the naming of the collection) that make the collection inaccessible (via browser).
The plan is to clean up this SharePoint environment and upgrade to 2010 (on new hardware). There is no desire to use Project Server. I have heard that project server cannot be uninstalled safely from the SP server.
Is that true?
Would there be a problem with just 'ignoring' project server in production, not install it on the new 2010 hardware and SharePoint will just never know it existed in the old environment?
If not, what do I have to do to detach project server from SP in the new environment?
