How should I configure Asp.NET on IIS 6, Sql Server 2005 and SSRS 2005 across 2 Windows Server 2003

I was running a MIS reporting solution on a single server running MS Windows 2003 Server and Sql Server 2005. The solution was built using ASP.NET 2.0 on IIS 6.0, Sql Server DB & SSRS. I now have purchased a 2nd server running MS Windows 2003 Server and Sql Server 2005. What is the best configuration to split the following application components across the 2 physical servers? ASP.NET web application SQL Server 2005 Datawarehouse SSRS Web Applications (Reports & ReportServer) SSRS Databases (ReportServer & ReportServerTempDB) The hardware configuration of the 2 servers are as follows Server 1 MS Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition SP2 Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU 5150 @2.66GHz 16 GB RAM Sql Server 2005 SP3 Standard Edition Smart Array P400 in Slot 1 (SAS Array A with Spare / SAS Array B with Spare) Drive C: 68.33 GB | Drive D: 273.40 GB Server 2 MS Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition SP2 Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU X5570 @2.93GHz 4 GB RAM Sql Server 2005 SP3 Standard Edition IBM ServeRAID-MR10i SAS/SATA Controller Drive C: 135GB | Drive D: 556 GB | Drive E: 271 GB Any suggestions would be of great help

SQL Server 2008 R2 on Windows 2008R2 Ent - Drives+Raid Configuration + W2008 Disk Initialization


Hi, I just want to make sure that we setup this server the best way possible as we are moving from a previous box where

performance was affected mainly because of partitioning and SQL memory optimizations.


The Hardware:

Dell PowerEdge R710 

  • Intel® Xeon® X5660, 2.8Ghz, 12M Cache,Turbo, HT, 1333MHz
  • 64GB Memory (8x8GB), 1333MHz Dual Ranked RDIMMs
  • PERC H700 Controller
  • 8 x 300GB 10K RPM Serial-Attach SCSI 6Gbps 2.5in Hotplug Hard Drive
  • Virtual Volume 1: 2 Drives = Raid 1 - for the OS
  • Virtual Volume 2: 2 Drives = Raid 1 - for the ldf's
  • Virtual Volume 3: 4 Drives = Raid 10 - for the mdf's

Windows 2008R2 64bits is installed on Volume 1.

- I would like to know what suggestions you might have for the Initialization of the other 2 volumes (MBR or GPT).

- Any other settings like partition align = 64

- Memory Settings at the OS level.

- Memory Settings on SQL.

- Any other recommendations.

Windows Service Applications Tutorials

You can easily create services by creating an application that is installed as a service. For example, suppose you want to monitor performance counter data and react to threshold values. You could write a Windows Service application that listens to the performance counter data, deploy the application, and begin collecting and analyzing data.

Serving Silverlight Apps from Windows Mobile

Even if mobile dev is not my every day work, thanks to the .Net Compact Framework, it's still .Net programming.

Here is the scenario:

You come back home, you have a windows mobile phone wifi capable and you want to quickly get access to your phone pictures from your home network.
You just activate the Wifi, run my app and then browse to the provided link from any computer on the network.

Getting Started with Windows SharePoint Services

Of all of the capabilities of SharePoint, I thought I would start with the most basic installation - as a corporate intranet. It is likely that we will need to discuss some of the elements of SharePoint as we go along, so this also gives us the opportunity to review these elements for future reference.

Before going into too much detail, I would like to point out that you can try the core SharePoint framework (known as Windows SharePoint Services or WSS) for free. On Microsoft's Web site you can download a trial version of Virtual PC 2004 (VPC). Using VPC, you can install the Windows 2003 Evaluation Kit and the WSS add-on. This combination will give you 45 days to evaluate the setup.

Building a Searchable Phone Directory with Windows SharePoint Services

I want to continue to build out the intranet site we've started in our previous articles. A standard item in every intranet is a staff/employee list. Most companies implementing Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) are large enough to have a database that contains all employees. We will use the aggregation features of SharePoint to include data from this database into our intranet.

Getting Started with Windows Communication Foundation

Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) provides a unified framework for rapidly building service-oriented applications that makes it easy to build and consume secure, reliable, and transacted Web services. It unifies the capabilities in ASMX, WSE, Remoting, COM+, and MSMQ; therefore developers need to learn only one programming model.

Application Architecture in Windows Forms 2.0

Applications have special support in Windows Forms. For starters, you can manage and tailor your application's lifetime, and, when the work flow is disrupted by an unhandled exception, you can choose from several methods of response. Then, there are several application models that you can employ, including Single Document Interface (SDI) and Multiple Document Interface (MDI) applications, each of which can support either multiple-instance or single-instance mode, the former the VS05 default and the latter requiring special consideration. All applications, however, can discover and use a wide variety of information about the system and environment they execute in.

Application Architecture in Windows Forms 2.0-Single-MDI Applications

Consider an MDI application like Microsoft Excel; files opened from the file system (by double-clicking) are all opened as separate child windows within the parent Excel window.7 For the first instance of an MDI application to open a new child window to display the file that was passed to the second instance of the application, the second instance must be able to communicate with the initial instance.

Windows Presentation Foundation and your architecture

Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) is a new client user interface technology that ships as part of the .NET 3.0 Framework. Architects have long faced the challenge of selecting an appropriate presentation tier technology for their applications. In recent times, if you are developing for the Windows platform, it was at least a fairly short list. You either built a web application, a smart client, a mobile device, or some combination of those depending on your target audience. Which one you picked gave you a fairly short list of practical options in the .NET space - ASP.NET, Windows Forms, and Compact Framework respectively.

New Features in Windows SharePoint Services 3.0

Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 (WSS 3.0) is the next version of WSS 2.0, released on 2007, and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (MOSS 2007) is built on top of this. Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 takes full advantage of Microsoft ASP.NET 2.0 and the core Microsoft .NET 2.0 runtime. WSS 3.0 offers a lot of new features and programmability support. I have consolidated a list of new features and enhancements in the below section:

How to programmatically add controls to Windows forms at run time by using Visual C#

Create a Windows Forms Application
Start Visual Studio .NET or Visual Studio 2005 or a later version, and create a new Visual C# Windows Application project named WinControls. Form1 is added to the project by default.
Double-click Form1 to create and view the Form1_Load event procedure.
Add private instance variables to the Form1 class to work with common Windows controls. The Form1 class starts as follows:

Reading and Writing Images From a Windows Mobile Database using UltraLite 10(C#)

Periodically I get a request for information on how to read and write binary data to a database running on Windows Mobile. If you search the Internet you can typically find examples that are available on Windows Desktops or allow you to read and write to a local file system. The problem is that it can take a bit of work to get this code to work on Windows Mobile accessing a database.

Ultimately you might be asking, why would I want to store and image in a database? Well in an environment where you synchronizing data between a local mobile database and a consolidated (central) database this can be extremely useful. Imagine if an insurance adjuster went to an accident scene, took a picture of a damaged car, loaded it into his Windows Mobile database and then replicated that image up to the Insurance headquarters for approval. All of this could be done in a very short period of time when using images in the database. Another good example might be a doctor who was waiting for a patient chart to become available. If you could store the image in a database this chart could be sent down to the doctor's device once it became available.

For this article I am not going to get into how to synchronize the images to and from a remote and central database as this is typically fairly straightforward when using a data synchronization technologies like MobiLink

How to create a windows mobile (Smart Device) .Cab installer

A Cab file is the default setup format for Windows CE and Windows Mobile devices (similar to windows .msi files). You probably already have installed several application using .cab files, and are familiar with the concept. One point which is often unknown is that .cab files are processed by wceloader.exe, and it can only install one .cab file at a time. That means we cannot have nested .cab files. It doesn't mean we cannot have .cab files contained by another .cab, but the contained .cab files will not be installed during the installation of the container .cab. We should install it manually after the container .cab file installation has been completed.

There are two ways to create a cabinet (.Cab) file. The traditional one, and the friendly VS Smart Device Cab project which doesn't require additional coding, but which also relies on the traditional one at low-level.
