Moving metadata and files together to Sharepoint 2007

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 05, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hello, The question is related to data migration (created using ASP application). I have metadata stored in SQL server 2008 and for each record there are few documents which are stored in windows file system(not in SQL server). I want to move to the metadata and the associated files to a SharePoint list ( the document should be stored as attachment, i think). Could you please suggest me a method to achieve this result?

Moving SharePoint 2007 from Domain to a Workgroup


For development purposes, we have SharePoint 2007 installed on a virtual server (Wind 2003) on a company desktop (Vista Business ed.).  The SharePoint is using Active Directory and company domain. For learning purposes, we want to copy the virtual machine on another Vista machine that is outside the domain and is not using AD:

Question 1 : How can we move the SharePoint from a domain to a Workgroup
Question 2: Is it possible to still be able to use emails (through local installation of Outlook) on the same computer that is not on the domain? If, yes, what are the possibilities (any articles on it? Etc.)?

Publish Office 2007 documents with metadata to SharePoint 2010?

Hi. I have SharePoint 2010 Enterprise based Intranet solution. We are publishing office 2007 documents to various document libraries there. When uploading documents normally to the document library, I can enter managed metadata to the documents which are later sorted and filtered by this metadata. But how can I enter metadata at the point where I'm publishing the document(Publish->Document Management Server)? I can get the document management pane to show my metadata -column in word as a textbox after the document is published, but the textbox is colored grey and says that I should modify that data on the server i.e. from sharepoint.

SharePoint 2007 Metadata In Outlook 2007

I have a few users that are looking for a better way to send documents to recipients outside the organization from SharePoint 2007.  The company's policy is to try to use Metadata rather than folders in the document libraries.  Unfortunately these custom columns are not displayed in Outlook 2007 and there are hundreds of files in each of the libraries.  This makes it a little challenging to locate the files to be attached to an email.  I see that there is an add-in from Colligo that may help but I'm wondering if there is another way without the purchase of add-ins or other products.  Any ideas?

Moving a larger Sharepoint 2007 site collection over to a new server



We have a Sharepoint 2007 site collection roughly 36 GB in size and have been having problems moving the site to a new server farm (Also 2007). We are trying the Sharepoint backup and restore method, but I understand that this method is not recommended for sites over 5GB. Has anyone moved a site of this size and how did you do it?

Thanks  Ron


Sharepoint Designer 2007 Not showing files in windows 7.

What happens is it brings up the insert window and shows the folder structure but we are unable to see the files in the folders. We have tried compatibility mode and run as administrator options and have had no luck.... If anyone has any ideas id be glad to hear them.

Moving Sharepoint 2007 from Virtual Server 2005 to Hyper-V


I'm a little unsure of the exact sequence to move my Sharepoint 2007 Virtual server from VS2005 to Hyper-V.  In my enviroment, my sharepoint machine and SQL machine are on 2 different boxes.  SQL 2005 is on Hyper-V and Sharepoint is on Virtual Server 2005.  Do I shutdown the SQL VM before I move Sharepoint???   Will the new VM and SQL sync back up without any help??

Also, what happens to the SQL database if the new Sharepoint VM (on Hyper-V) has issues or problems??  Does that make my SQL server

out of sync with my old Sharepoint VM???  I have done multiple moves between VS2005 and Hyper-V so I really familiar with the process.

I usually keep the old VM around for a while after moving just in case there is a problem.   I can always blow away the new VM and crank up the old.   Viola!  I'm back to square one.

Any ideas??



SharePoint 2007 - SharePoint deleting files and libraries


There was a process that ran overnight that randomly deleted document libraries and directories within some document libraries thoughout our sharePoint Site.  I do not have any archive jobs running and there was not rhyme or reason to why some were deleted and others were not.  Most of the items deleted were moved to the second recycle bin or stie recycle bin - deleted from end user recycle bin but it was done with the SharePoint administrator account.  I have looked at the logs for anything out of the ordinary but this has never happened in the 3 years since SharePoint was installed.  I have restored the items that were located but others were deleted completely

This deletion of items went through 21 of my site collections but did not delete items from 18 other site collections.

We are running SharePoint 2007 version, MS SQL 2005, NO CUSTOMIZATION straight out of the box installation, 32 bit, 2 WFE's - one running application and one running search, central admin

Any help would be appreciated.

Sharepoint 2007 delay in files are not showing up in document library


When saving a file from ie. an email attachment into a sharepoint document library the files show up in explorer view of the document library but there is about a 20 minutes delay before they show up in the default view of the document library.  This is quite frustrating as because you can not see it there the users try to save as again. 

This seems to work correctly in our test sharepoint environment.  Does anyone have any ideas as where to start looking.


moving sharepoint server 2007 to another domain

Cannot access SharePoint 2007 site after moving data to another AD domain



We are setting up a staging farm on a test domain. For this we took a copy of the data from production and attached them to staging. In the test domain I created user with same user name as in production but they cannot login. I tried making the user site admin still he cannot access. I hope there is a problem when we move sharepoint data between domains.

I ran the stsadm migrateuser comman with ignoresidhistory and it ran successfully, but still user get access denied message. Is there someway this can be fixed?

For example, we have 2 domains, prod and test. I setup SharePoint farm (same patch level as prod) in domain test and copied all my content databases and attached in test domain sharepoint. The system account in test domain is “test\spadmin”. Now only he can access the new site in test domain.

There was a user “user1” in prod domain and I created a similar user in test domain - “test\user1”. Even after giving him full control on the sites, he gets Access Denied error. I tried creating a new user in test domain that does not exist in prod domain, even he cannot access the site because of Access Denied exception. Is it a limitation of SharePoint that we cannot move data between domains.

PS: We are running MOSS 2007 Ent 64 bit SP1 and SQL Server 2005 SP3. We use NTLM authentication.


Error saving Office 2010 files opened from SharePoint Server 2007


I have recently started testing Office 2010 and have found only 1 major issue - I cannot save any Office 2010 files opened from a SharePoint Server 2007 location.  Upon save I receive an error message saying "Upload Failed. This file wan not uploaded because the specified path was not found on the server." and the file is captured in the Microsoft Upload Center.  Using the Upload Center action 'Open Web Site' opens the site without problem; however, a all subsequent resolve actions fail.  Any ideas?
