Hello there:

  I know it is just button click actions in admin GUI to copy sites inside same site collection in MOSS2007.

  However, if we do want to copy site across site collections, how can we do that? shall we involve other tools?


Thanks for your kind help and

Copy site in same site collection fails in MOSS2007


Hello, everyone:

  In our MOSS2007 environment, we have a '/countries/' site collection level, underneath which there are several country-sites. We give the local webmaster of each country site  'full control' permission.

  However, one local webmaster encounter copy action failing error while she definitely has been granted 'full control' permission in this site. The error is as below.

  We tested with site collection level admin, it works fine. Therefore, we suspect that there could be a hidden thing in this site that even local webmasters cannot access?

Best regards,

Hi there.

How would you go about creating a workflow for the creation and editing of sites within a site collection?

Visual Web Developer 2010 Express "Copy Web Site" using different login


I created a site and am trying to grant another pesron access to upload changes to it without giving them my super-user login.

I made a login for her but I can't test whether it works or not because no matter how much I "disconnect" in the Copy Web Site page of VWD 2010, reconnecting to the same site always logs in as my superuser account without prompting me for a login again.

How do I test is the account it set up correctly before having her try to upload to it?    I want to force the login to remote site dialog to pop up again to test her account.

Any ideas?

Site Collection Usage Summary: No Data Available


Usage analysis processing is enable for my farm in both Central Administration and in the SSP.

I've checked TImer Job Status and the three timer jobs responsible for doing the log analsis are all running.

I've also checked the log file locations and the log files are being generated.

Yet when I browse the "Site collection usage summary" report (SpUsageSite.aspx) I get the following:

No data is available for this report. Usage analysis might have been enabled only recently, or there might have been insufficient usage to result in any values for the report.

My farm is running 2007 Enterprise SP2 (

Can someone confirm if this issue was fixed with one of the CU's that were issues post-SP2?

Site Collection Usage Report Include Outlook?


Hi all,

Does anyone know if the Site Collection Usage Report includes activity that occurs from Outlook? For example, if a user contributes to a discussion board without ever physically touching the site or if the user just reads list content from Outlook, is this included?

ANY help at all is greatly appreciated.


Portal Search Work - Site Collection Search Does Not


In our SharePoint installation we have an SSP which indexes local office sharepoint server sites.  However there is a problem, although we can do portal searches which reveal search results it is not able to do local searches at the site collection level and as a result we are presented with the typical error below.


No results matching your search were found.

  1. Check your spelling. Are the words in your query spelled correctly?
  2. Try using synonyms. Maybe what you're looking for uses slightly different words.
  3. Make your search more general. Try more general terms in place of specific ones.
  4. Try your search in a different scope. Different scopes can have different results.

I am unsure as to why this strange event is occuring.  We do not have the WSS Search component running in the MOSS environment as the SSP service should be able to index and server search queries at the portal and local site collection level.


Any thoughts to this?

Only crawl one site collection

Hi We have an intranet with about 100 site collections. How can I set up one of those to be in a separate content source that can be crawled more often? Do I need to make two content sources with one containing the other 99 site collections with the setting "Crawl only the SharePoint Site of each start address" and the other one containg my prioritized site collection with the same setting? I also would like to ask if the crawl rules have any effect on in which order the content is crawled. If I put a certain site to be included with order 1 will that site always be crawled first? //Niclas

site collection size

what is the solution of a site collection if its size grows beyond 100GB?  There is no way we can split it into two site collections and the content database will be large than 100GB even if it contains a signal site collection. Thanks in advance, Peter
