Visual Upgrade SiteDirectorySettings.aspx issue

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 20, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

After completing a SharePoint 2007 to 2010 migration I perfomed a Visual Upgrade on my site collections.  I noticed that the Site Directory Settings page (SiteDirectorySettings.aspx )  in the site settings section is not rendering properly.  It looks like it is still trying to render using the old SharePoint 2007 look/feel.

Has anyone else noticed this issue?

Repo steps:

  1. Database attach migration from 2007 to 2010
  2. Perform Visual Upgrade
  3. Go to Site Actions, Site Settings, choose Site Directory Settings under the Site Collection Administration grouping

Checkin.aspx fthrows error in live - not un dev - after visual upgrade


Dear all,

I made a cusomized masterpage in dev - based on the starter master pages of randy drisgill. They worked fine there. Used SP2010 designer export and import to live. Although I dont see them in SP designer, I see them in the MP gallery. Also tried dragging them in the library while in SP designer, no luck.

I go over to the master page gallery on the live and try to check the new masterpages in, no such luck, an error. I check out blackband, try to check it in, same error. So it seems to have nothing to do with the masterpage i'm trying to check in. The SP2010 machine is an in-place upgrade. Which worked fine - after a visual upgrade  though nothing seems to want to checkin anymore - also not on other libraries. This though was not the case in dev after visual upgrade.

Have a look at the ULS log here : http://twitpic.com/2vn3k2/full

I will revert to version 3 of the UI with powershell - but do hope to get to version 4 eventually.

Thanks for any tips

Visual Studio closes itself by opening aspx-Page designer after Windows Update


Hey Guys,

I've a problem with my Visual Studio.

On the 13th of August 2010 i installed a Windows update on my vista sp2 pc. For this date my Visual Studio 2008 sp 1 always has closed itself by opening an aspx-page in designer view. There is no error message just closing the window. I restored a backup of my windows from the time before updating it and it helped, i could open aspx pages in the design view till the update has been installed again automatically after rebooting the pc. I can't disable windows updates, cause it's my pc at work and safety is very important. I hope you could help me out of this disaster.

Visual Upgrade and New Subsites

Hi Folks When we create a new subsite in a 2010 site that has not had visual upgrade applied, the subsite is in the new 2010 format. Is there a way we can revert the new subsite back to the old WSS style like the parent site so the site and subsites are consistent? TIA Adam

SharePoint 2007 upgrade to 2010 without UI update masterpage issue

I have a public facing site on a SharePoint 2007 farm that will be upgraded to 2010.  This site has a very customized look and feel that will not initially be updated to the 2010 UI.    I have run into one small issue with 2010's handling of legacy 2007 UIs.In SharePoint 2007,  to have a different master page for the application pages and dialog boxes we utilized an HTTP Module to switch the master page on the fly.    After migrating the SP2007 into our 2010 beta test environment the HTTP Module no longer worked properly.   I did some debugging and found out that SharePoint 2010 is returning a NULL value for MasterPageFile property on the pages in the _layouts folder.   I would have expected to see the URL pointing to the application.master page (or dialog.master).   Any ideas if this is a bug in SP2010 beta and will be fixed in RTM or is this the intended behavior.If it is the intended behavior in SP2010 how could I update my HTTP Module to allow the site to continue functioning as it did on 2007?

SSRS in place upgrade from 2005 to 2008 issue

    • The data source 'Data_Source_Name' cannot be found. (rsDataSourceNotFound)

Panel Layout and Visual Studio issue - what is recommended path?



I am working with .NET 3.5 (VS 2008). In one of my tabs, I have added two panels. Each panel takes up the whole tab area (dock=full).  At any one time only one panel is visible. Depending on what the user does, one panel will be hidden while the other is visible.  My problem is that when I am in Visual Studio in the design mode, I can only see the panel that was added last.  The first panel is below that, so I can't work with the panel to add other components (buttons, labels, ect).  I tried to right-click the top panel and select "Send to back" but that does not make the bottom panel visible.  The only thing I can do is undock the top panel and move it to the side while I work on the underneath panel.

Does anyone know of a better way to access the underneath panel in design mode or if there is a more appropriate way to create stacked panels (think deck of cards).

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated - Peter

AJAX Upgrade Issue


We have a DNN site and we use the AJAX Toolkit.  We upgraded from AJAX 30930 to 40412.  We changed the script manager to a ToolkitScriptManager.  I have a image button that posts back and calls a modal popup.show() method.  When I click the button I get a javscript error before the post back:

Error: Sys.WebForms.PageRequestManagerServerErrorException: This version of MicrosoftAJAX does not offer the ScriptManager.RegisterClientScriptBlock method.

Any suggestions would be helpful.  I will obviously provide more detail if needed.

SSRS 2008 formatting issue - different in visual studio preview/pdf/excel vs. internet explorer


The formatting of the report is perfect when viewed in Visual studio and also after exporting it to pdf or excel. But when I deployed my solution and opened it on IE/Firefox there is a lot of problem in formatting. Specifically the row height is giving me a problem. I manually entered them to be 0.1in and made the CanGrow field as false to force that row height but some rows in the tablix expand ( to 0.15in, which is the height of my header). This is true for a matrix as well. Is there is a feature to lock the row height in IE o any other web browser?


SQL 2008 Reporting Services Report Parameter and Analysis Services issue after upgrade

I have upgraded my SQL 2000 database and analysis server and SQL 2005 reporting services server to a new instance of SQL 2008 running database engine, analysis services and reporting services.

The analysis services database migrated successfully and I have got the database into a state where it processes fine but I am having the following problems.

- My Reports show in reporting services but the drop down list parameters are all empty.
If I change the parameter in report builder to use the display name instead of the uniquename then the drop down list populates and works until I select a value that contains a space character and then it reports a problem with the dataset used by the report.

Query for the dataset used to populate my parameter.
with member [Measures].[GroupUniqueName] as '[Site].CurrentMember.UniqueName' member [Measures].[GroupDisplayName] as'[Site].CurrentMember.Name' select { [Measures].[GroupUniqueName], [Measures].[GroupDisplayName] } on columns, { [Site].[Group].members } on rows FROM [Invoice Reporting]

Query used by the report, filtering on the selected parameter value from the drop

IT Workspace upgrade to SP 2010 issue

After SharePoint 2007 upgrade to SharePoint 2010 issue with custom site(s)


With our 2007 site(s) we had a custom module (we developed) to swap out the application.master with our own master page which resembled the site default.master.  This worked great.

After the upgrade, out site's main pages looked fine however when navigating to the admin type pages (settings/viewlists etc.) pages the module stopped working.

1.) I have figured out something things with respect to what is going on but am still at a loss to how best resolve.  We want the layouts/admin pages to have the same master page as the main user pages.   I have read in 2010 this is now possible.  How can I achieve this?


2.) Currently, when navigating to the sites/settings page the site is using template/layouts/layoutsv3.master as the master page.  The settings.aspx page has DynamicMasterPageFile="~masterurl/default.master" .  It was my understanding that when DynamicMasterPageFile was set to default.master it would use the master page from the site.  So, with that said I am confused why it is using layoutsv3.master

any help would be appreciated
