Attach site collection data from content databases

  
I have migrated my Sharepoint from a stand-alone installation to a server farm installation by following this article. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc262325%28office.12%29.aspx Every step was completed successfully, except for the last one (4): Install Office SharePoint Server 2007 on a new farm Move databases from the stand-alone server to the server farm Create and attach data from the Shared Services Provider (SSP) Attach site collection data from content databases Whenever I try using the stsadm -o extendvs I get the following message: The IIS Web Site you have selected is in use by SharePoint.  You must select another port or hostname.   The following is the command: STSADM.EXE -o extendvs -url http://dms01 -ownerlogin group\dms -owneremail dms@xxx.com -exclusivelyusentlm -databaseserver jagrb -databasename WSS_Content -apcreatenew -apidname DMS -apidtype configurableid -apidlogin group\dms -apidpwd xxxx   So far, all my efforts to Attach the site collection data from the content databases have failed. Any ideas?

Content Query Web Part, QueryOverride and sorting by site

  
Hello, I want to display documents from various sub-sites in my portal. These documents must be grouped by site and only documents created in the last 7 days should appear in the CQWP. The first difficulty I encountered was that I cannot apply a filter like " date created< today - 7" in the tool pane of CQWP. So I searched the web and found that I can create a custom query by exporting the web part and changing the QueryOverride property. Thing is that you cannot specify a CAML group clause in the QueryOverride property. It is just not supported. It seems though (thanks to this post: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-US/sharepointdevelopment/thread/92e335ad-48f6-4572-a314-752c8b41ef8f) that if you specify a "order by" clause for the field you want to group by, then you can use this field in the group by section of the CQWP tool pane. Thus, I need to sort my results by site (because I want to group by site afterwards). But how do I do that? After another long research, I found out (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff380147%28office.12%29.aspx#odcsp2007CustomizeCWQP_CustomizingUsingtUIwebpartFile) that I have to specify the ViewFieldsOverride property in order to include the original site that my document comes from. And in the property I have to include the following property: <ProjectProperty Name="Title"/>. But still I ca

What are points i need to take care?

Delete a Site Collection without a Content database

  

I have a site collection whose content database has been deleted with no backup. Now I want to delete the site collection and i get what seems to be a sql login error. I know the account I am using has enough access to the sql server (used this account to install sharepoint). I am guessing it is complaining because it can't find the database.

Remove-SPSite : Cannot open database "WSS_Content_Database" requested by the lo
gin. The login failed.

I used the Remove-SPSite <URL of site to delete> command.

Any ideas?

Thanks, Berney

WSS 3.0 Cross Site-Collection List Lookup

  

Hi all

New to Sharepoint here, so apologies if the question is unclear.

We would like to store centralised reference data in a dedicated site-collection and allow it to be accessed from other site-collections using list lookups. Can anyone recommend a webpart that would allow us to do this? I've found lots of cross-site list webparts, but not for crossing SC boundaries. Is there an OOTB feature that we could extend to achieve the same thing?

Thanks

Ewan

Lookup column across site collection that are in different content DB

  
Is there any solution to create a custom look up column that get the data from lists in different site collection that are different content DB?

cross site, within collection, Lookup column

  
Is it possible, through the UI or with  Designer 2007, do create a Lookup column that gets its data from another site within the same site collection?  If not, can you recommend any FREE third party tools to do this?  Thank you.
There are no mistakes; every result tells you something of value about what your are trying to accomplish.

How to Specify Content Database for a Site Collection Restore from Backup

  
Hello,

I have prepared code that first creates a new Content Database within a specified Web Application, then restores a Site Collection backup to that same Web Application.  Unfortunately, the Restore doesn't provide an option to select the Content Database that was just created.  So, is there something that I might do to ensure that the Site Collection gets restored to the Content Database of my choice, programmatically?  If not, is there something I can do to change the Content Database for the newly restored Site Collection?  All ideas would be appreciated.

Thank you,

Doug

Wss v 3 site collection - can't add /change /edit any content

  

Hi guys,

I have noticed a very strange thing in my wss v 3 site. Since a few days Nobody can add / modify / delete contents of site. Site actions button give only Site settings options, Not like before edit page etc, View all site content does not show Create button. Any document library or list does not shpow anything but Actions button.  It is clearly a lost permission issue, however  when I checked and rechecked all of those are correct. I'm even login as an administrator which is listed as site collection admin and nothing. STSADM.EXE" -o backup -url let me do a backup however option restore give access denied HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED). Of course I'm running as site collection admin. Where to look for answers ?


Reset site collection content types

  

Hi,

I have a "Test Document" content type inheriting from the default "Document" content type which, in turn, inherits from "Item". The "Test Document" is a MS Word template document (as is "Document").

I went into the "Site Settings" of the site collection, selected "Site content types" -> "Document" -> "Advanced Settings" and while the "Update all content types inheriting from this type" was set to Yes, I clicked OK.

Now when I go back to the documents library and open the "New" menu to create a new document, both the "Document" and the "Test Document" logos are changed to plain icons (not the MS Word icons it had before) and when I click it I get the "Upload Document" dialog.

Is there a way to restore the site collection's content types to their default settings?

 

Thank you,

Sagy

Creating Site Collection in Existing Content Database

  
Hi All,

I'm trying to create a site collection in a existing content database. I haven't found a method in Sharepoint object model to perform such a action. There is an option to create a site collection in a new database using the following command:
                                                                
SPSiteCollection.Add(url, siteDescription, siteDescription, 1033, siteTemplate,
                                                                siteCollPrimaryAdmin.LoginName, siteCollPrimaryAdmin.Name, siteCollPrimaryAdmin.Email,
                                                                siteCollSecondaryAdmin.LoginName, siteCollSecondaryAdmin.Name, siteCollSecondaryAdmin.Email,
                                                                strSQLServerName, siteContentDBName, null, null);

Is there a different object to do this creation on existing database? Any ideas to approach this problem will be greatly appreciated

Thanks,

Content Query Web Part missing in SharePoint 2010

  
If you don't see content query web part listed in the web parts list, this is because you have not enabled "Search Server Web Parts" feature in site collection features. Enable this feature and content query web part will show in the list of web parts.

workflows when saving site as template with content

  
I have have a MOSS 2007 site on a production server with custom workflows.  I saved the site as a template with content and used the template to create a sibling site.  I am testing it and the workflows aren't working.  Is this to be expected? I have read that workflow don't work when saving between development and production, but I can't find anything that addresses both sites being on production. Will I need to recreate the custom workflows by hand?
