Problem:

Doing a 'Save As' from MSP to CA PPM fails if a project is created in MSP, has PPM resources staffed and assigned to new tasks, then baselined in MSP.

Steps to Reproduce: 

Prerequisite: an active connection is already established between CA PPM and MSP by opening a project from CA PPM and closing the project without closing out of MSP completely.

  1. In MSP create a project
  2. Browse PPM for resource and add the resource to the project
  3. Create a task and assign the resource to the task
  4. Create a baseline
  5. 'Save as' to PPM

Expected Result: Project save is successful

Actual Result: Project save fails

Environment:

This issue applies to 14.3 with the new driver, it is not reproducible on 14.2 and other lower versions

Cause:

Caused by CLRT-79005

Resolution:

Resolved in CA PPM 14.4.

Workaround:

Clear baseline in MSP and baseline in PPM once the project saves
