Switching authentication claims/classic for a SharePoint Server 2010 Web Application for Project Server 2010

I was switching authentication from claims to classic authentication for a Project Server 2010 site.

I had used PowerShell but there were caveat to the script SOLUTION as there had to be some manual steps to switch authentication .

See the PowerShell below:

$webApp = Get-SPWebApplication "http://vm-dev6:40932/"
$webApp.UseClaimsAuthentication = $False;

Manual Steps 1:

In the below snapshot the Forms Authentication is still enabled. Disable it as we need to use Windows Authentication.



Manual Step 2:

This is because I was getting an “access is denied” for the PWA( Project Web App)

Go to the Central Administration –> Service Applications–>“Project Server Services Application” and click on Manage button from the Ribbon. You would need to click on the provisioned Project Server web application ( PWA) and “Edit” and set the right administrator
