General question steps to configure mysites in SharePoint 2010

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 03, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I am trying to configure the mysite web application, so I have created a DNS record "mysite" and created a web application for the mysite and created a mysite host site collection on it. Now I have read somewhere that u have to create managed paths for the profile and the mysite, which actually corresponds with the name of the DNS record/mysite webapp. For some reason when i am opening the mysite, i get a url something like http://my/my. What am i doing wrong? Can somebody just give me a step by step approach on how to configure Mysites in MOSS 2010?I am a SharePoint Infrastructure Engineer, focussed on Administration and Installation of SharePoint Server environments.

SA Question about SharePoint 2010

Hi,   This is a fairly basic question but I wasn't able to find a specific answer. I would like to know the cost of Software Assurance for SharePoint 2010 - is it a % of the license cost? What Percentage please? OR Is it a fixed $ cost? Thanks, ~Trevor

Configure Incoming Email in SharePoint 2010 with a remote (public) SMTP Server

I have a standalone SharePoint 2010 Installation on my local network. Have configured the SMTP Services and a SMTP domain called "internalcompany.com". Created a hosts file entry also for that - now outlook is able to send emails to this domain; it reaches the drop folder and from there SharePoint picks it up and pushes to the document libraries. So far so good. But obviously this is not what I want to do: my www.company.com is my public domain and mail server is mail.company.com - how do I get the local SMTP point to this address - so that if someone sends an email to shareddocs@company.com (just like any other normal id), it comes to my local server and then SharePoint. How do I do this? Remember, my server is standalone and my network is not domain based and does not have exchange.Karthick

RBS on SharePoint 2010 Question

Hopefully an easy question for you all.  In the technet documentation on setting up RBS for SharePoint 2010, I noticed it states that you can provision a BLOB store only one time.  Does that mean you can only use the RBS that you setup (eg, C:\Blobstore1) for the one Content database/web application associated with it and for each other web application I bring up, I need another blobstore?  Thanks in advance.

Clone production Sharepoint 2010 server to Developmet environment - steps? help?


Greetings all,

I'd really appreciate some thoughts and suggestions about how to make a clone of our Sharepoint 2010 Production environment that we can use for testing and development.

At the moment, we are likely to have two different servers (Production is a much more expensive, powerful server) for the scenarios; so if we make a direct clone, the Windows OS files would be upset.

Would it be enough to simply copy the Windows Shared files into the Dev system (taking all modifications with it) and the db into a cloned db?

If not, what are the things we'll have to consider, and/or has anyone accomplished this yet?

Thanks for your tips and suggestions!


Sharepoint 2010 core.js question


I was reading articles (mainly targeting SP 2007) that talked about changing the master page so that core.js is only loaded on demand for sake of performance. And for external facing sites with Anonymous users, delayed/asynchronous loading was recommended.

So I decided to take this to heart and began creating a secondary master page for my SP 2010 site. However, when I looked at the code, the both the existing v4.master and dayandnight.master were already set to use RegisterSod for all the js files. So have things changed with SP 2010 where this optimization is no longer necessary? Please advise.

Thanks in advance,

General Steps on how to use (infopath) Forms in 2010



I'm planning to use infopath forms and I need some guidelines on how to use Forms in Sharepoint Server 2010.

I need answers in questions like:

Should I use one form library for one type of form, or a form library per Department, having all forms inside?

How do you implement logging?

What is the use of a tasks library in workflows of a forms library?

Any help?

SharePoint 2010 Backup Question


Hi Guys,

I have just configured my SP2010 backup and I want to make sure that I am not missing anything.  I was hoping I could list off steps and precautions I have taken and that you could lend me some of your expertise.

  • I have a MOSS server and a SQL2008 server.
  • Symantec Backup Exec backs up the content database every night.
  • I have created a script to backup the SharePoint config every night.  Saves it on my moss server in a backup directory.  (gets cleaned out every 7 days)
  • I have created a script to backup the //MOSS site every night into the same backup directory. (over writes itself every night)
  • This backup folder, is backed up nightly using Symantec Backup Exec as well.
  • I am also backing up the logs folder in the 14 hive (using Symantec)

Is there anything else I should be backing up???  Am I missing anything?

Thank you

I am having the exact problem with the Configuration failing. It appears that EmilyBen fixed the problem by uninstalling and "reimaging" her server. Would you please tell me how this is done and will I be able to reinstall without any problems, such as reusing my license key for the product?
