How do use an existing application pool when creating a new web application on Moss-2007 SP2

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 07, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I have been asked to try and reduce how much memory is being used on our Moss 2007 SP2 farm by reusing existing web application pools. My problem is that when you go through creating a new webapplication and choose the option labled "Use existing application pool" under the section labled "Application Pool - Choose the application pool to use for the new web application" I can only select from a list of three application pools "(Default App Pool (network services), Shared Services, and OfficeServerApplicationPool (NetworkService)" The drop down list does not mention any of the other app pools I have created for previous web applications. My question is this, how do I pick an existing web application pool that I have created previously, rather than keep on creating new application pools for every new web application I create? The farm consists of 3 FE servers 1 search, 1 Query and a Clustered 64bit SQL backend running SQL 2005 all running 64bit W2003 server R2 Thanks for any help you can provide on this. Mr T.    MR T

PowerPivot - New Application Pool vs. Existing Application Pool

When creating a PowerPivot Service Application I am giving two options: "Use existing application pool" or "Create new application pool" and if I join an existing pool which one should it be "SharePoint Web Services Default" or "SharePoint Web Services System"? Now I understand isolation and other technical reasons but what I want to understand is what you guys in the field that run SharePoint Farm would want me to configure and if that does not cause me any scale or performance issue we are good.  If I want to run outside most SharePoint standards I better have a good reason. One note I just missed was: "While this may be a good security best practice, you may still want to use an application pool and/or managed account that is tied to your SharePoint Farm account. As will be noted in Chapter 9, for the PowerPivot data refresh feature to work, the PowerPivot Service Application and PowerPivot System Service requires Farm account rights to access the Secure Store Service database." -- PowerPivot for Excel and SharePoint, page 217 So folks what you would suggest or better yet, how would you like it configured within your farm. Thanks. Denver, CO

Hi all, I'm new to infopath forms and i dont find much articles to develop enterprise application (I'm coding for an ERP module).

How to implement robust Document Management application using MOSS 2007


I want to implement an efficient document management system using MOSS 2007.

I know Sharepoint 2007 offers OOB document management capabilties but I am facing strong challenge in uploading large files(500-1GB file size) into document library. If I have to avoid direct storing of files in document library then pointer/link to files in physical drives is possible but in that case I will not be able to leverage the full capabilities of sharepoint.

Need some views or directions in regard to this. Any link to custom solution/source code is most welcome.

Thanks in advance.

[MOSS 2007] Cannot connect to SSL web application / site list


Hi all
I have a quite strange problem with MOSS 2007 and I cannot solve it..

I installed MOSS 2007 SP2 on a single server (Windows 2003 Server SP2 + local SQL Server 2005 Standard Edition) without problems

I created a web application (port 80) and a site list on it without problems; everything is running correctly, I can connect to http://servername and to http://servername/sites/sitename

Then I created a SSL web application (port 443) selecting "Use Secure Socket Layer"; web application is created without errors
I created a new site list on this web application and site list creation is correct

BUT I cannot connect (from the server) to https://servername/sites/sitename or to https://servername
I always have "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" error

I can connect to any other SSL website using the same Internet Explorer so I don't think it is a browser problem...

I cannot understand what is the problem; the strange thing is that some months ago I installed another server with the same configuration (web appl on port 80 and web appl on port 443 and sites created on ssl web app) and I had no problem and it is still perf

Creating an database search application in VS C#

Hello everyone, I wish to create a C# application that will have a form and a text box where I can enter a text, and then ask the application to search if this text exists in a database. If it exists, I want all the information associated with this text to be displayed in a datagrid view or list box. I am able to create a database in SQL Server and I can connect to my database from VS 2005 C#. If this is possible, how do I go about it? Many thanks in advance.

BuildManager.GetType returns null until application pool recycles

Our application uses the Enterprise Library's PropertyProxyValidator class to validate user input (v4.1 - Oct 2008).  On occassion, the code will raise an exception saying the source type cannot be found.  This error persists until the application pools recycle at night, at which point everything works again.  It tends to only affect one of the web front ends at a time (there are two). I tracked down where the exception was being raised, and this is the section of code:Type IValidationIntegrationProxy.ValidatedType { get { if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(this.sourceTypeName)) { throw new InvalidOperationException(Resources.ExceptionNullSourceTypeName); } Type validatedType = BuildManager.GetType(this.SourceTypeName, false, false); if (validatedType == null) { throw new InvalidOperationException( string.Format(CultureInfo.CurrentUICulture, Resources.ExceptionInvalidSourceTypeName, this.sourceTypeName)); } return validatedType; } } (As you can see, the value for this.SourceTypeName is shown in the exception and I've checked that it matches exactly.) We have never been able to reproduce this exception and at this point don't have any ideas left as far as causes.  For a while, my suspicion was that it was related to the Temporary ASP.NET Files folder.  The last

SharePoint 2007 Web Application Images

When I create a new web application in MOSS 2007 the images are broken. I find "Red Cross" symbols but no images. To my surprise I have created plenty of applications before but I never had any such issues. The images on other applications on the same server work absolutely fine but when I try to create a new one I find this problem. I have also tried the following: 1. Added "Everyone" to the Images application 2. Checked the permissions on the site and folders 3. When I try to browse to the image it gives me a 403 forbidden error. In the Log files i see 403 1 5 0 error for all the images. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
