I'm curious to see if anyone has done this. Currently, my environment has 3 seperate SharePoint 2007 server farms. I'm currently evaluating SharePoint 2010 and so far like what I see. I'm wondering though what would be the steps I would
need to go through to actually upgrade and then merge them all to one SharePoint 2010 farm? The steps I can think of are the following:
1. Make sure all 2007 farms are on the lastest (or at least similar) version
2. Upgrade each farm to SharePoint 2010
3. Create new 2010 farm
4. Copy upgraded farms' site collections to NEW 2010 farm.
OR can I do this:
1. Make sure all 2007 farms are on the same version
2. Create a copy of each current SharePoint 2007 site collection that I want
3. Create NEW 2007 Farm
4. Copy content to new farm
5. Upgrade new farm to 2010
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
Is there a way to move a sharepoint site from within a site collection to an already exsisting site collection on another sharepoint farm.
i want to move a site from our development SharePoint site to our production environment.
Recently for one of my project, I had a requirement to install SharePoint on a farm environment. I had a walkthrough with technet site and completed the installation. I thought share my scenario so that somebody with similar requirement may find this useful.
First of all, I had 2 servers for the implementation. So I have decided to dedicate one server for database and another for Sharepoint installation.
The server names are SP2010_DB (for database) and SPPortal (for sharepoint). Both are joined to the domain. For the sake of this article, I am mentioning the domain as SP2010FARM.
I have used the following user accounts for the installation.
Server roles required
-Sql Server service account
- domain user account
I want to build a small Sharepoint Farm on a hyper v
Windows Server 2008 R2
I want to have the following instances. An App server (with indexing and query) and an SQL server.
I need to scope out a server which will accommodate this development environment and ultimately scale out to include additional virtual instances.
What would the minimum memory and CPU requirements be?
Server farm config is 4 servers: 2 wfe,1 app, 1 db. NLB on WFE's.
Deploy from VS 2010 to http://myspapp or
http://myspsite I get this error in visual studio.
Error 2 Error occurred in deployment step 'Recycle IIS Application Pool': Cannot connect to the SharePoint site:
http://myspapp/. Make sure that this is a valid URL and the SharePoint site is running on the local computer. If you moved this project to a new computer or if the URL of the SharePoint site has changed since you created the project,
update the Site URL property of the project.
On my dev machine deploy works fine. Is it possible to deploy to a server farm from visual studio 2010 or do I have to use powershell commands?
HI have 4 farm:-
1 FARM (5 SERVRES) MYSITE
2nd FARM (n Server) Application hosting WFE
3rd FARM (n Server) Application Servers
How would the communication in the FARM will happen?
How the data shearing like MYSITE creating, Indexing etc will take place amoung these various farms?
We have a 2 server farm--SharePoint 2010 Farm server and SQL 2008 server. Unfortunately, the SP 2010 farm server needs to be renamed. We're not yet a production environment, but I do have some sites created. I'd rather not have to totally
"reinvent the wheel". What's the "best practice" for this type of situation? Disconnect SP 2010 server from the config database first, then rename the SP 2010 server through Control Panel, reboot, and then reconnect to the database? If
I do this, how will I connect to the CA? I don't want to miss any crucial steps!
We want to have a dedicated Index server in our Sharepoint 2010 Farm and we have have Query roles on our WFE server itself.
I came across this -
http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepointadmin/thread/f775c95d-4bec-450d-a56c-5114a0f52c0a in which it is written: " By installing WFE on Dedicated index server in SP2007 Farm, you will have benefits"
But as per my understanding , in Sharepoint 2010 Farm Setup, we dont need install WFE role on index server as index server will have to propogate index to query server and we cant avoid any network traffic.
Please validate my understanding and if you have any recommnedations for setting dedicated Index server in SP2010 Farm , please suggest .
I am trying to do a backup the Backup using the Backup and Restore feature in SharePoint 2010 Central Administration. I just want to backup only the farm configuration settings only.
so I followed the GUI
Open CA Backup and Restore, checked the Farm checkbox, click Next
I chose the following:
Backup Type : Full
Data to backup: Back up only configuration settings
Backup File location : use an UNC shared location
at this point, I see the Estimated disk space required is: 1.2 GB
the server hard disk available space is 30 GB
but when i click the Start Backup, i got an error in RED saying
"There is not enough disk space. Free additional space on your hard disk and then try again. Approximate amount of space needed is 40 GB. Amount of space free on disk: 30 GB."
Why is this happened? and the estimated disk spaced required still showed at 1.2GB
If anyone had experience this problem and have a solution, please advice
I have an existing sp 2010 enterprise server hosting websites and central administration. I have a seperate sql 2008 r2 server holding the databases. My goal is to setup another sp 2010 enterprise server to provide redundancy for the websites
and central admin. I believe I am able to accomplish this by adding another web front end to the farm. On the second server, I install sp 2010, run the config wizard and connect to the config database located on the sql server, however, I
am interrupted at step 3 when I am notified of the following:
Failed to connect to the configuration database.
An exception of type System.InvalidOperationException was thrown. Additional exception information: There was an error encrypting or decrypting credentials. Either a credential update is currently being performed, or you must update the farm account credentials
