I need a detailed instruction on how to upgrade From Upgrading from Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 (SBS 2003 ) to SharePoint Foundation 2010.
Background of the case:
I have all my databases (STS-database and STS_Config) saved but, I forgot to save my Virtual Site )Companyweb site) and I mistakenly re-installed IIS on the SBS 2003, hence I lost the companyweb site. Is this an issue to migrate to Sharepoint foundation
2010. The Sharepoint foundation 2010 is running on a Microsoft HyperV Server 2008 R2
Also, I have created a Virtual 2003 SRV ENT with Sharepoint Services 3.0 running on it. I also have attached my Databases STS_Database and STS_Config)... how do I get it working like a regular website. I have modified the CNAME record to reflect the new server...
http://companyweb - it take me to the new site but it loads a blank page. I did create a new CompanyWeb Virtual site on the VHD 2003 server.
Your help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your prompt response. Nelson
i wonder if it possible to install Sharepoint foundation 2010 with windows 2008 WEB and Sql 2008 Web Edition,
Good day to all
i am trying to install Sharepoint server 2010 on my server, i have a windows server 2008 sbs sp2 pc. i have manually downloaded the Prerequisites and installed all except the windows identity foundation which just hangs. i have downloaded the file from the
windows site namely: Windows6.0-KB974405-x64.msu, please can someone assist me in this matter i am at a lost.
I have Sharepoint Foundation 2010 installed and Sharepoint Designer. When I create a Site workflow there are 2 Start Options grayed out, 1) Start this workflow to approve publishing a major version of an item. 2) Start this workflow when an item is changed.
Is there an onther setting to prior to creating the workflow to turn these option on or are these 2 options not available in Sharepoint Foundation 2010?
I need to perform a lookup of a user creating a list item and fill out some of his properties automatically. (such as company, departement, etc.)
I can imagine there are two ways to go ahead with this. You can create Infopath filters or/and rules to lookup information. I don't know whether it is possible to lookup information from Active Directory with this as well?
I do know it's possible to lookup information from another list. I could of course use BCS to create a list within SharePoint and then use that. Somehow that doesn't feel like the proper solution.
I can also use workflows that would start automatically and go ahead an retrieve user information in such a way. I don't know whether this is the best option either.
Any advice / feedback would be much appreciated.
Visual Studio 2010 extensions for Windows SharePoint Foundation
Did anyone tried the Extensions for VS2010, please provide info where can i fin all of this !!!
I have installed successfully SharePoint Foundation 2010 on my Windows 7 computer, and it works perfectly. I have read the installation notes in Microsoft website and they advice about using this kind of configuration is not properly for production environments,
but the question is, WHY? if it is working perfectly? should I buy a Windows Server 2008 and an expensive hardware to deploy into my small company?
Thanks in advance :)
