Adding Current Windows User to Database Encounters Existing User with Same Login


In VS2008 in debug mode, I am using SMO to programatically change the users and permissions on a database. Windows authentication alone is being used. I need to limit access to a administrators group and the current user for whom the database has been dynamically created during the first run of the application within their current Windows environment on the machine. I have no problems creating and assigning the administrators group, but when I try to create the user using the environment's UserDomainName and UserName variables (which would be my creditals) I encounter an inner exception "The login already has an account under a different user name". Before doing running the app, I manually have checked the local server for user and logins with my credentials and programatically looked at each login but have not found any matching credentials. 

Insights and suggestions appreciated.

Migrating content database to farm with different build number


Is it possible to attach a MOSS content database from FarmA (SP2) to FarmB (SP2 + Oct Cumulative) when both farms are on different builds?

Creating Sites/Lists/List Items under Current User Context in SharePoint By Using SPUserToken

Usually we do this by performing the action under RunWithElevatedPrivileges method and updating the listitem using SPListItem.SystemUpdate() method (see here). but this approach has its own flaws like (RunWithElevatedPrivileges will run under system account, we cannot use SystemUpdate for SPSite,SPWeb,SPList, since it runs under system we will "CreatedBy" by as SystemAccount).

dynamically adding sql server columns based on number of files in fileuploader


I want to create a new table to sql database at runtime.  The column names would be "Name", "Date", "Event".  I would also like to have one more column name "Image" but the problem is that since the amount of images will vary, I want the application to count the amount of files in the Multiple fileuploader and then add a image column to the table for the respected amount of files. 

For example if i am uploading 3 files in the multiple fileuploader, the names should be "Name", "Date", "Event", "Image1", "image2", Image3"

I also would like that table name to be name dynamically from the textbox Name when the user enters the information.


I have the following code to make a new table, but I dont know how to name the fields at runtime like previously asked please help!!!

MOSS Content Database has more documents than what's seen on browser

I am not sure how sharepoint internally handles stuff, but this is what I see. I am a SQLDBA and one of my company sharepoint group re-organized a site, by moving some files from a document library to another document library. I think she used the content deployment.

When she see the number of documents in the document library it showed 700 documents. She moved only 50 of them. I went into the database and queried the Docs and DocStreams View and I get the list of all the those documents. I see both the ones that we see on the site as well as something that we do not see on the site.


ad.DirName, ad.LeafName, TimeCreated, ads.size/1024 as [Size(KB)], SetupPath

SharePoint Version 2.0 (WSS 2.0 SP3) Content Database restore to new farm

Is it possible to use an SQL backup from a sharepoint Version 2 SP3 database to restore the content on a new server farm and attach to a new web applicaiton. NOTE: This is WSS 2.0. In WSS 3.0 this is a very simple task, but it is not the same in WSS 2.0 (the add content database option CANNOT be used to attach to an existing content database like it does in WSS 3.0). The options I have found appear to say you need the configuration database from the old server then it can be done. I am migrating from an outsourced deployment, so I do not have access to that. Plan B is to do a sharepoint STSADM backup. THis seems to be a more likey way to do it.

adding a SharePoint content source using powershell

Hi I'm trying to create a content source using powershell and (I'm not a programmer) I've got this far -   [System.Reflection.Assembly]::Load("Microsoft.Office.Server.Search, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c") [System.Reflection.Assembly]::Load("Microsoft.Sharepoint, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c") [System.Reflection.Assembly]::Load("Microsoft.Office.Server, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c") $site = new-object Microsoft.SharePoint.SPSite("http://breakfast/ssp/admin") $searchContext = [Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.SearchContext]::GetContext($site)  $content = new-object Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.Content($searchContext) $Content.ContentSources; --> and now I'm stuck! I think I can use the Create method with type and name parameters but I can't work out how to translate this into powershell This is the code I'm looking at: ContentSource contentSource_com = content.ContentSources.Create(typeof(WebContentSource), "www.someurl.com"); WebContentSource webContentSource_com = (WebContentSource)contentSource_com; webContentSource_com.StartAddresses.Add(new Uri("http://www.someurl.com/index.html)); webContentSource_com.Update(); and $contentsource = $content.ContentSources.

Cannot create content database: The specified SPConfigurationDatabase Name=SharePoint_Config Parent=

Guys, This is the farm configuration: 1. SQL Server 2005 back end server 2. WSS 3.0 / MOSS 2007 WFE Server 3. WSS 3.0 / MOSS 2007 Index/WFE Server All servers are showing the version: in 'Servers in Farm' in C.A. When attempting to add a new content database, the following error is thrown in the web UI: The specified SPConfigurationDatabase Name=SharePoint_Config-New Parent=SPDatabaseServiceInstance has been upgraded to a newer version of SharePoint. Please upgrade this SharePoint application server before attempting to access this object. Furthermore the following is posted to the application event log on the WFE hosting central admin: Database 'SharePoint_Config-New' on SQL Server instance 'XXXXXXXX' is not empty and does not match current database schema. There is nothing of further interest in the trace log, just the same error as above. No errors on the SQL server either. Also no updates have been installed, and content databases HAVE been created since the last updates were installed 2 years ago. Can anyone suggest anything before I raise a call with MS? I have checked permissions for the sharepoint system account on the databases and all seems fine. Cheers, Conrad    Conrad Goodman MCITP SA / MCTS: WSS3.0 + MOSS2007
