Mass Meta Migration

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 02, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
There are 2 sites with same doclib template (same metafields set). When i just copy files between libs no metafields are saved. Only way to save passports is to copy it with context menu command. But i can do it only 1 files at a time. Any options ? PS Well there is another method  to apply metadata - through excel view magic, but it is non systematic )

SharePoint document migration challenges when migrating files and folders

There are several challenges when migrating documents to Microsoft SharePoint. While these challenges can be overcome, they are a real pain if the migration source, content and file systems are not SharePoint friendly.

Migration from ASP.NET 3.5 to 4.0


So, I just recently started to migrate my website from 3.5 to 4.0.   I am running in a bunch of issues but mainly 2 so far that have me stumped.

1. I have a custom URL rewrite module that I use, and it seems like it's being ignored to some extent.  It works fine if I run it through Visual Studio 2010 debugger, so I have no idea why it's not being fired. 

2. In some of my pages, I reference a BasePage class instead of System.Web.UI.Page.  The ones that reference this BasePage class works fine, but when I use System.Web.UI.Page, I get : Object reference not set to an instance of an object when I try to create an object.

Any ideas? 

Migration to .Net 2 and includes



I'm currently having a problem with one of our old .Net 1.1 applications. For generating the user interface, a lot of incude statements were used.

<!--#include file="includes/header.aspx"-->

In these includes, the variables from the parent files are used.

Now I have to use at least .Net 2 and Visual Studio 2010. The problem is that VS tries to compile these include files, which of course failes.

Is there any way to restore the old behavior again?

Metadata: Create a Database Schema Repository with Meta Data Services in SQL Server 2000


SQL Server 2000 Meta Data Services is a repository technology that stores and manages metadata for SQL Server. Instead of building database schemas over and over, Meta Data Services allows you to freeze an entire schema for use in other projects. You can also use these schemas for training, testing, or debugging. In this article, the authors will review the various components of Meta Data Services and show how it can be programmed using a Visual Basic client, XML, and XSLT. They will also show you how to manage and manipulate your metadata by generating a simple database schema using a SQL Server repository.

.NET Migration Case Study: Using ASP.NET to Build the beta.visualstudio.net Web Site


When the Web site used to collect customer feedback about the Visual Studio .NET beta needed an update, the Visual Studio team saw a good opportunity to implement, deploy, and showcase a real-world site using .NET technologies. This article covers the migration of the Web site, beta.visualstudio.net, from components written in Visual Basic 6.0 and ASP hosted on Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) 5.0 to ASP.NET and the .NET Framework. The choices of technologies to be incorporated, along with issues such as validation, security, and authentication, are all discussed. Both existing components and the new components written in JScript and ASP.NET that were used to migrate the site are also explained.

site migration


Hi we are migrating a website from a proprietary system  to a new system built inSQL 2008.

We have created a lookup table that contain the UrlAlias of every individual page and its associate id. On every page request the new system has to query the lookup table with around 6,000 pieces of rows to get its id.

Now i am afraid of the load it would generate on our server and make the system slow?

Is there any work around of doing this using rewriter, regular expression etc

SQL 2005 migration issue

Hey everyone, I do not know anything about SQL, so hopefully someone can help me out. Installed SQL 2005 on a new server.  Restored a database from SQL7. The database I restored is called "train" for example and in that database is a user called "train_user" I cannot connect to the obdc data source using this "train_user".  I do not know if the password didn't carry over during the migration and don't even know how to check or change this password.  I don't know if this user needs certain privileges to be able to access the SQL server?  They are the db owner of the database that I restored.  The application I am trying to launch gives me the odbc error.  This info is stored in an ini file.  If I change this info to sa, then I can access the application. If I need to provide more info, I can do that, but hopefully someone understands what is going on or what I need to do to fix it. Here is the error code:  Error: 18456, Severity: 14, State: 5.

My question is about initial restore of master database in Seattle. is it a problem to restore 2005 master db on 2008 server?JulieShop

Transfer all FSMO role into another domain controllers 2. Install and configure similar role in the new VM (Exchange Server 2010 Std.) 3. Confused… Things to do after all mailbox migration: 1. Cutover the MX record into the new server name 2. Install updated UCC- SSL certificate into the exchange server 2007 Any kind of help and suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
