Moving a feature from dev server to production server

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 13, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hi, I have created a feature in my sharepoint development server. The development server is one location and the production server is in another location. After testing the feature in the dev server, I am not sure how to move the feature to the production server. I want to move only that feature, that is newly created and not the whole site. How to move a feature from dev server to the production server. Please explain the steps in detail, if possible. Thank you

Deploying custom Web Parts on SharePoint 2007 production server

I would like to develop a custom SharePoint 2007 Web Part for a client. Currently I'm using Visual Studio to deploy my solution to a test environment (since it's a SharePoint Project I choose just Build -> Deploy from the menu). What are the appropriate steps to deploy it to the production server?

I'd like keep it simple and safe (i.e. use the principle of least privilege). Therefore (if possible) avoid using stsadm, achieve this through web interface, or avoid using administrative rights.

Also, can I specify the scope of my Web Part, i.e. choose on which Web Application or Site Collection will it be installed?

Problem adding .NET 3.5.1 feature on Server 2008 R2

Having an issue with a 2008 R2 64-bit Server becoming unresponsive/locking up when trying to activate the .NET 3.5.1 feature.  Did not have any previous version of .NET installed but ran the .NET Cleanup utility and completed successfully but still have same issue.  It installed .NET 4 via the Microsoft Updates OK but still hangs part way through the 3.5.1 install via the Server Manager/Add Features.  Any ideas?  Thanks!

Will SQL Server Compact feature an updated and more capable OLEDB driver

Hi, Earlier, we found problems with using SQL CE 3.5 via OLEDB. While some limited functionality was available and data can be accessed via commands and recordset via OLEDB/ADO from, say, Excel or Access, we were unable to access SQL CE directly from other data-driven packages that nominally support OLEDB, most importantly SAS and SPSS. So our question is whether SQL Server Compact will feature an updated and more capable OLEDB driver? Thx and regards, Ralph

Moving a Copy of SQL Report Server 2005 and Upgrade to 2008

Hello, We have SQL 2005 Report Server in a Windows 2003 64 bit server box. We want to create a copy of this report server database somewhere in the domain, so that we can access it for a different purpose. My question is, will there be any complications with this? I'm thinking about the encryption key that's needed to access the database. If we are successful with this, we might also want to upgrade to SQL 2008. Thanks for your help,   Elizabeth K.

Moving WSS 3.0 to a new server

Hi, The server that I have Sharepoint on is dying and I need to move it to a new machine. The new server has different hardware and a different hostname. Can anyone point me in the direction of a guide as to how to do this? What I've done so far is install Sharepoint on the new server and copied the databases over. I've changed the web application using the central admin so it points towards the copied content database. I'm was thinking that it could be an issue that the hostnames are different so I've also tried changing the host header of the site to the same one as the old server. There are no errors or anything just the sites from the old server aren't appearing on the new. Any help welcome, - Claire

need help moving System Center SQL Databases to new SQL Server about30 databases to be moved...

We are running various System Center products, SCSM, SCVMM, SCCM, DPM, OPALIS. and a few other servers all using the same SQL server, which currently is a VM. We have configured and built a new Physical box that will replace this. In the past we have moved SQL databases by doing a full backup and then restoring the backup on the new server, then renaming the servers, both network name and internal sql name.  This has worked fine in the past. However I've never had to move 30 databases before, nor have I had to move reporting services. Is there a better method. a recomended method?

Moving SQL Server between domains

We currently have SQL Server 2005 running using specific user accounts, i.e. DOMAIN1\!serviceSQL. Our old forest was DOMAIN1.OTHERCOMPANY.COM. We are running our own AD now using DOMAIN2.COM. We copied all of the users and groups using ADMT, retaining all of the same SIDs. Then we moved our SQL server to the new domain. It comes up fine, but all of sql service instances are still running under DOMAIN1\!serviceSQL. We tried to manually change the account that the service starts as to DOMAIN2\!serviceSQL, but get the following errors listed below when we start the service.  1) Any idea as to what could cause this error? 2) Are there any tools for migrating all of the service users? 3) Are there any tools for migrating all of the server logins from DOMAIN1\OurDatabase User Group to DOMAIN2\OurDatabase User Group? 4) Tools to migrate the database users and groups?  Event Type: Error Event Source: MSSQL$DEVSQL3_1 Event Category: (2) Event ID: 17190 Date: 3/15/2010 Time: 3:05:06 PM User: N/A Computer: DEVSRV07 Description: FallBack certificate initialization failed with error code: 1.
