Alternate Access Mapping Problems

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 16, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I have set up a windows server 2003 and sharepoint 3.0 on the same computer. First, I set up two "New Host A" in my DNS Server - Forward Look up Zones and then I tried to access the websites. No luck.  I went to the run command and pinged both sites to see if they worked. They pinged as they should. Then I went into Sharepoint and set up the Alternate Access Mappings with a default and extranet zone. A login box appeared which won't accept my administrator password or anyone else's.  I can log directly into all site collections that I have developed. I saw that you advised someone with regards to their login and browser but could you explain in more detail what you mean by that?  I am a bit stupid sometimes. :-) I also changed all the properties in my DNS Server host records to have full administrator privileges. Can you please advise if I should take that back off as a precautionary security measure. It didn't resolve my problem anyway. Thanking you in advance. Tracey

Alternate Access mapping - Intranet site

Hi All, I'm banging my head against a brick wall here trying to setup an alternate access mapping for an intranet site in SharePoint 2007. I have a default site setup which has the following public default URL: http://SERVERNAME:2586 I want users to access the site using the URL http://Intranet Now from reading about alternate access mappings I thought this should be as simple as adding an internal url of http://intranet under the intranet zone. With this set up I preceded to add the binding to the IIS website. I added the binding with All Assigned IP addresses, port 2586, and host as Intranet. The final thing I did to check this was to add an entry to the hosts file for the server IP address with the host name of intranet. This was followed by a flush of the DNS cache on the server. Whgen trying to access the site using the URL i now get the IIS7 welcome page, but not the SharePoint site I expected. Can anyone point me in the direction of what i've done wrong, Its got me stumped. Cheers, Grant

Reporting Services and Sharepoint Integration - Sharepoint Alternate Access Mappings (Zones)

I get the following error when I try to navigate to a report/model/data source, stored in a Sharepoint Document Library using a Sharepoint URL based on an Extranet or Intranet zone - but it works OK using the url for the Default zone: System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException: The specified path refers to a SharePoint zone that is not supported. The default zone path must be used. ---> Microsoft.ReportingServices.Diagnostics.Utilities.SecurityZoneNotSupportedException: The specified path refers to a SharePoint zone that is not supported. The default zone path must be used. Is this a limitation of the SQLRS-WSS3 integration or is there a workaround? Many thanks to anyone who can help!

Problems with access to external lists in SharePoint 2010

Our environment is SharePoint 2010 Enterprise, Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard and SQL server 2008 R2.   We have External lists that access a local database in SharePoint SQL Server. When new lists are added and permissions are given in the SharePoint Central Administration the domain users had to be in the Windows administration group to access the lists.   Recently in the same environment the domain users were removed from Windows Administration user group and could access the external lists.   In another similar test server we found adding the domain users to Windows Administration does not give the new domain users access to External lists.   The inconsistency is the issue. Has anyone seen this issue or provide a possible solution?

MySite Alternate Access Mappings not working

Hi, I had some problems with my upgraded SP2010 server last week. Something happend and the web.config files for each web application was reset to base settings. I had some backup on these files and got everything working again. The only thing that is NOT working is Alternate access mappings for MySites. if I use the server:port url all the webparts work just fine. But when I set it to the AAM I used before the "crash" no webparts work. It is just the message: Web Part Error: "This page has encountered a critical error. Contact your system administrator if this problem persists. " Does anyone have an idea where to start looking for bad configuration? Regards Joakim Gustafsson Stratiteq Sweden

My memberships not updating after renaming alternate access mappings and IIS hostheader



After upgrading fram MOSS2007 to Sharepoint 2010 via the database attach model "My Memberships"on MySite are not being updated.

During the update session, our host headers and alternate access mappings had af different name than they were supposed to have after a successfull upgrade. This was to insure that users had access to the old platform in a read only state while upgrading.

After a successfull upgrade the old farm was closed down and alternate access mappings and IIS hostheaderes were nenamed to their normal/old names on the 2010-farm.

However, in the time where the 2010-farm was temporarely named the "My memberships"-list was generated with these URLs. After renaming the my memberships-list is not being updated - even not with new memberships on the new farm. By looking into old threads I have tried this to resolve the problem, but without any luck:

  1. stsadm -o deleteolddatabases 0
  2. checking the timer jobs regarding profile sync i CA (ok)
  3. reset of the search index and initiating a full crawl
  4. a full profile import from AD

All without any luck.

Remote access to SSAS (SQL Server 2008): problems with SQL Browser / UDP port 1434


Hello everyone,

since last Friday I'm fighting with an issue, which drives me crazy. I tried all the hints I found, but nothing worked. Now I address the community with a hope, that anyone can help me.

So, here is my situation: I have dedicated database server (server'S OS is Windows Server 2008, DBs are (1) SQL Server 2008 SE with all BI components, named instance and (2) SQL Server Express Edition, installed together with VS 2008), joined to our company's domain. My laptop is also in this domain. When I try to connect to the named instance of SSAS on that server from my laptop using SSMS or BIDS, connection fails. When I connect to SSAS on the server itself, it works.

What I did on Friday:

1) I opened all "SQL-server"-related ports in the server's firewall (including UDP port 1434 and TCP port 2382);

2) I tested UDP port with telnet (telnet <IP-address of the host> 1434) - ne response, neither localy nor remote;

3) portqry2 gives following output:
C:\PortQryV2>PortQry.exe -n <IP-address> -p UDP -e 1434

Querying target system called:

Attempting to resolve IP address to a name...

Failed to resolve IP address to name

Problems Mapping Drive Letter on Windows XP



Good Afternoon all,


I am having issues mapping drive letters to document libraries in WSS 3 via Windows XP.  For some reason Windows Vista will work with no problems at all, but Windows XP will just say "The Network Path http://xxx Could Not Be Found".  I am wondering if I need to do something different with Windows XP than what I am doing with Vista.


Here is what I am using, copied DIRECTLY from the sharepoint site.




We have numerous Document LIbraries in Sharepoint, but this one in particular is names "Sales Docs" and yes there is a space.  What do I need to do differently with XP to get this to work?


Thanks for your help all.

MVC architecture in ASP.Net using C# and Microsoft Data Access Application block

The Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern separates the modeling of the domain, the presentation, and the actions based on user input into three separate classes [Burbeck92]:

Model. The model manages the behavior and data of the application domain, responds to requests for information about its state (usually from the view), and responds to instructions to change state (usually from the controller).

View. The view manages the display of information.

Controller. The controller interprets the mouse and keyboard inputs from the user, informing the model and/or the view to change as appropriate.
