Code Name WinFS: Revolutionary File Storage System Lets Users Search and Manage Files Based on Conte


One of the monumental problems organizations face today is aggregating information that's stored in disparate formats. Knowledge workers have long wanted to be able to search for content independent of format. The next version of the Windows operating system, code-named "Longhorn," boasts a new storage subsystem that makes that task easier. That subsystem, code-named "WinFS," allows the user to perform searches based on the metadata of the stored item, regardless of what type of file it is or which application created it. This article covers the basic architecture of WinFS and explains how to use the WinFS managed API.

How to manage large .trc files?

Hello everbody,        Sir, with raid 10  with enough arrays to hold files saperately.    Is an array of raid 10 will be identified as one logical drive? such as c:, d: e.t.c.   Actually I want to store trace files on server to capture representative workload for DB Tuning with DTA. As i know that will be very large in size as my OLTP DB gets very busy at 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. and less busy at diff. time and i don't want any event to be missed out due to lack of resources. So how to manage this?   Can i attach ext. HD to the dedicated sql server to hold .trc files? Is it advisable?   Pl provide any available link for config. best practices for raid 10. Or standard config. for raid 10 to get optimum performance. Or any suggestion regarding this issue.   Thanks in advance

"Manage checked out files" crashes

In any of our document libraries (SharePoint 2007 SP1), if I run "Manage checked out files" (from Document Library Settings), the page spins for several minutes and then crashes.

In the trace log, we see that proc_GetListCheckedOutFiles timed out.  Any ideas why this would happen?

ASP.NET session variables, do you need to save each time?


Anytime you change the object variable that is already assigned to a session variable, do you need to "re-save" the variable back into the session variable or does it do it automatically?

For example:

// abc is an object of some random type

Session["abc"] = abc;  // initial declaration of session variable.

abc.a=1;  // updated abc.a field after a button_click event

Session["abc"] = abc;   // resave the new field value of 'a' back into the session variable 'abc'.

Or does the session variable already keep track of all changes made to the object and saves automatically?


Best time to save "structure" session variable


I have a structure that groups a number of fields together that I want to use to retain values between different web pages. My plan was to transfer the structure to a session variable and retrieve it as each page loads. In theory each of the different fields could be stored in and retrieved from separate session variables but the structure approach seemed more elegant.

I was initially assuming I would be a "sensible time" (e.g. specific event) when I could consistently save the structure content to the session variable but I realise that I may be on the wrong track and that it may be necessary to transfer to the session variable to the structure each time one of the individual field values is updated as there is no way of determining when the user is about to move to another page.

Is there a solution to this or a better approach?

wsp files taking alot of time to deploy

In order to integrate SSRS 2008 with MOSS 2007, we added a server as a WFE on the farm. this wfe has SSRS 2008 configured. but after that the wsp files, though not giving any error... are taking more than 30 minutes to deploy and retract... the configuration of the farm is simple too. 2 front end, 1 search and 1 database. i have tried restarting the timer service and turning the timer service off on the wfe2 (where SSRS 2008 is also present).... any ideas?

How to get a mdf file back from sql files recovered from SQL Recovery Toolbox?



I had a corrupted mdf file so I purchsed SQL Recovery Toolbox to fix it. When it repaired the file, it spat out a number of sql files and an install.bat file. Because the file was a sql 2008 express file, i'm supposed to now use sqlcmd.exe to fix it. Apparently to get it back to a mdf file, I need to create a blank database and somehow use sqlcmd.exe to import the sql files into the new mdf file.

I use a security program which installs sql express 2008 during the install. I don't know how to use MS Sql. The security program I use has it's own batch file to attach or detatch the two mdf and ldf file to it. I emailed the SQL Recovery Toolbox tech support for instructions on how to created a new mdf db and import the repaired sql files but they basically said that they have an agreement with MS and cannot tell me how to do it.

Can someone please let me know what to do or where to look for assistance? I am stuck at the moment and don't know what else to do.

Any help greatly appreciated, cheers.
