Possibility of overwriting other sites on other servers in the farm?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 08, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hi,   This is my first Sharepoint site so please be gentle :). I'm creating a sharepoint site to function as a local wiki for IT documents. I want to install the site on one server only.  I'm at the section where I'm given the option: If you opt to create a new IIS web site, it will be automatically created on all servers in the farm.  As, I said, I only want the site on one server so the option of using an existing site probably isn't for me since it needs to reside on all of the servers in the farm but in my farm topology I have the following                                                         *Services Running* Our exchange server                           Not configured Server B (correct server)                    Central Sharepoint admin and Services db etc Webmail server              &nbs

Taming the Stateless Beast: Managing Session State Across Servers on a Web Farm


Running a Web farm means managing session state across servers. Since session state can't be shared across a Web farm with Internet Information Services 5.0, a custom solution is required. One such solution using a tool called the session manager is described here. The article begins with a description of the SQL Server database used to store state information, the stored procedures used to update it, and the retrieval of session data. ASP code drives the session manager tool and the COM and COM+ components that run the stored procedures.

Getting servers list in the farm in WSS 2.0


I need to get the list of all servers in the farm. Using WSS 3.0 I can do that

                            using (SPSite startSite = new SPSite(ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings["FarmName"]))
                                SPFarm farm = startSite.WebApplication.Farm;
                                foreach (SPServer spServer in farm.Servers)

Same IIS Sites on Every Farm Server?



I am working on extending my current internal SharePoint environment to external users, and I had a question...

Basically, I added WSS 3.0 to one of my forward-facing web servers.  Installed no problem....(connect from the outside with SSL no problem)....but it did replicate every SharePoint web application (IIS Site) in my farm to this server.

When I extended my web application that I want to be accessible, I created a new IIS site.  And this is the only site I want on this server...

Can I delete the others off that forward-facing web server?  If so, can this be done within the Central Admin page?  Or simply by deleting them in IIS?

*I would hate to delete it off the server and have that change replicated through the farm.....lol!

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Cannot connect new Servers to existing MOSS 2007 SP2 farm


We have Single Server MOSS 2007 SP2 farm with DBA managed database server. We have different web applications running and deployed several solutions (SharePoint Learning Kit, Facet Search, workflow extensions, new themes) in the farm.

Recently we wanted to scale out our farm by adding one WFE and one indexing server. I have installed MOSS 2007 SP2 slipstream in the C drive (default location) of both the new servers. Then before running the SharePoint Product & Technology Configuration Wizard I uninstalled MOSS, restated the servers and reinstalled MOSS 2007 SP2 slipstream in D drive.

I didn't add farm administrators group to the local administrator group of the new servers but I added my own account which is a member of farm administrator group to local administrator group. I didn't add Central Admin Webapp pool identity account (which is a service account) to the local administrator group either. But this service account as well as farm administrators group account has dbcreator & securityadmin privileges in the sql server, both t

Upgrading servers in a MOSS 2007 farm from Windows 2003 SP2 to Windows 2003 R2

Are they any particular pitfalls to watch out for here?  We have two front ends in a load balance with an index server, andtwo SQL servers forming a failover cluster.

SharePoint Tutorial - Team Sites

Team sites are small web sites that are created to store everything about a particular thing. For example a site can be created for a department in an organization like human resources. I site can be created for a particular project. A site can even be created for a meeting. Everything about the thing (department, project, meeting) like documents, lists, calendars, etc. is stored in that site.

Creating Sites/Lists/List Items under Current User Context in SharePoint By Using SPUserToken

Usually we do this by performing the action under RunWithElevatedPrivileges method and updating the listitem using SPListItem.SystemUpdate() method (see here). but this approach has its own flaws like (RunWithElevatedPrivileges will run under system account, we cannot use SystemUpdate for SPSite,SPWeb,SPList, since it runs under system we will "CreatedBy" by as SystemAccount).

2 Web Sites


Does anyone know if it is possible to pass a Session variable from one web site, to another web site?  I am writing both.  They are located on the same server - but with different URL's... different projects...

ASP.NET Security: An Introductory Guide to Building and Deploying More Secure Sites with ASP.NET and


Forms authentication is one of the most compelling and useful new features of ASP.NET. It enables developers to declaratively specify which files on their site can be accessed and by whom, and allows identification of a login page. When an unauthenticated user attempts to retrieve a page protected by forms authentication, ASP.NET automatically redirects them to the login page and asks them to identify themselves. Included here is an overview of forms authentication and what you need to know to put it to work. Also included is hard-to-find information on the security of cookie authentication and on combining forms authentication with role-based URL authorizations.
