Cannot crawl sharepoint site and mysite after database attach upgrade form sharepoint 2007 to 2010.

After database attach upgrade site and mysite from sharepoint 2007 to 2010 , I have full crawl and get "The crawler could not communicate with the server. Check that the server is available and that the firewall access is configured correctly. If the repository was temporarily unavailable, an incremental crawl will fix this error. ( Error from SharePoint site: HttpStatusCode ServiceUnavailable The request failed with HTTP status 503: Service Unavailable. )" for mysite and get "Access is denied. Verify that either the Default Content Access Account has access to this repository, or add a crawl rule to crawl this repository. If the repository being crawled is a SharePoint repository, verify that the account you are using has "Full Read" permissions on the SharePoint Web Application being crawled." for sharepoint site. The content access account for search is "db_owner" of both of site and mysite. How do I solved this problem ?

SharePoint 2010 - Seperate MySite collections.

We are currently looking into SharePoint 2010. The configuration will be in a farm setting with a couple front end servers etc. We will have the one main farm, but each department is then given thier own 'Portal' or 'Web Application'. This web application points to thier own SLQ DB on the shared SQL server. Some departments have expresse the possibility of using 'My Sites'. My question is, how can I configure each departments's my site to also use a different SQL DB. Currently I see only the ability to have one my site DB for the entire farm.   Thanks in advance.

General question steps to configure mysites in SharePoint 2010

I am trying to configure the mysite web application, so I have created a DNS record "mysite" and created a web application for the mysite and created a mysite host site collection on it. Now I have read somewhere that u have to create managed paths for the profile and the mysite, which actually corresponds with the name of the DNS record/mysite webapp. For some reason when i am opening the mysite, i get a url something like http://my/my. What am i doing wrong? Can somebody just give me a step by step approach on how to configure Mysites in MOSS 2010?I am a SharePoint Infrastructure Engineer, focussed on Administration and Installation of SharePoint Server environments.

Configure Incoming Email in SharePoint 2010 with a remote (public) SMTP Server

I have a standalone SharePoint 2010 Installation on my local network. Have configured the SMTP Services and a SMTP domain called "internalcompany.com". Created a hosts file entry also for that - now outlook is able to send emails to this domain; it reaches the drop folder and from there SharePoint picks it up and pushes to the document libraries. So far so good. But obviously this is not what I want to do: my www.company.com is my public domain and mail server is mail.company.com - how do I get the local SMTP point to this address - so that if someone sends an email to shareddocs@company.com (just like any other normal id), it comes to my local server and then SharePoint. How do I do this? Remember, my server is standalone and my network is not domain based and does not have exchange.Karthick

Is it possible to configure an existing sub site as variation source label in 2010?

Hi, I am trying to configure variations on an existing site. For example, I already have a site collection and a sub site "en-us" that has all the content. Would it be possible to configure this existing "en-us" as my variation source site? If not possible, can anyone suggest me any work-around? This is very critical and hopefully there is a way to achieve this without having to move all the content from "en-us" to my top level site, create variation labels with different names, and then delete the content from top-level site. Please suggest. Thanks, Karthik    

Mysite SharePoint 2010: Displayname shows domainname/username?


Hi !

I setting up MySite on SharePoint 2010 for my organization. MySite is our first priority to get up and going. Everything is installed and working.

- SharePoint installed
- Active Directory is synced

When I browse around for users in the search bar, everything looks fine. I can use the organization chart to browse up and down, and their names is all correct. 

Problem is: 
When a user connects to MySite for the first time, the MySite is obviously created and the user can start to add content and so on.
But - After the user logged in for the first time, his Displayname (property collected from AD) shows as "domainname/username" 

After we tried and tested a couple of users and they logged in, the organization chart is falling apart, and the displaynames are all changed to domainname/username. 


Anyone know what causes this?

Mobile page refuse some workflows to go ahead that published by Sarepoint designer 2010


The workflow refuse  to go ahead after operation when browsing the mobile page (...?mobile=1), but same workflow  by SPD (Collect data from user) is nunning well on the non mobile page (ASPX).

In mobile page, no "complete task" button. Only a "save" button.

Using it's "save" button, some modified can be saved in the page, but it's workflow not go ahead.

I tested "assign for approval" workflow by SPD on mobile page, same.

if you try "assign for feedbak" by SPD on mobilepage, it's oK. The workflow can go to it's end. Funny.

My wish:  The "Collect data from user" designed by SPD can go ahead when using the mobile page (...?mobile=1). My boss like to do it by mobile phone.

My environment:

Sharepoint server 2010

Sharepoint designer 2010

SQL 2008

Windows Server 2008

if using iPod tests it,  same as above.

SharePoint 2010 - Photo Displays in MySite - Photo Doesn't Display in Contact List


MySite is up and running fine.  I am adding photos through Central Administration > Manage User Profiles.  All photos are syncing and showing up in contact lists whenever someone is added to a "Person or Group" Name (with picture) column. 

I recently added someone, uploaded their photo.  It syncs fine with AD, can see it in the thumbnailPhoto attribute for this user.  I looked in the UserProfile_Full.PictureURL column in the Profile DB.  It is there as well (http://sharepoint:80/my/User Photos/Profile Pictures/DOMAIN_USERNAME_MThumb.jpg).  The photo refuses to display in the contact list. 

This is only happening for one user.  Any ideas?
