Need Dec2008 or Feb2009 SharePoint Cumulative updates for pre-SP2 testing.

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint


I am trying to download the cumulative update package for MOSS for either december 2008 or Febuary 2009, I can find the WSS package not problem, but the MOSS package is not found.

I get this - http://support.microsoft.com/hotfix/KBHotfix.aspx?kbnum=960011&kbln=en-us

I have looked and looked, but found no where to download these updates.  And I do NOT want to have to call MS just to pay $600 for MS to send them to me...

What gives?

All SharePoint 2007 & 2010 Cumulative Updates Unavailable??


As far as I can tell, all SharePoint 2007 and 2010 Cumulative Updates are unavailable -- trying to download any of them goes to a page saying that the hotfix download page is unavailable.

Anyone know if they are working on this problem, or any idea when the site will be working again?

Do they have any ftp site they can fall back on, when their web service platform fails like this?

Unit Testing SharePoint - Past, Present, and Sporm

As I described in SharePoint: The Wild West of Software Development there is a serious problem when you develop for SharePoint: ensuring quality through unit testing is really, really hard. And that's where a new open source tool just released today called sporm (SharePoint Object Relational Mapper) comes in. While sporm provides many benefits besides simplified unit testing I wanted to focus on this topic first, because sporm's approach, which models the entity framework in the way it supports POCO's, is a unique feature not available with other SharePoint tools like LINQ to SharePoint.

Disregarding updates on non-checked-in entries in a sharepoint list (SPAudit)


Hey guys.

Okay, this is a little hard to explain, as the title might suggest.

I have an event receiver on ItemUpdated and ItemCheckedIn, which both writes custom SPAuditEntries. When CheckedIn occurs though - it comes with two update entries as well (one for added file, and one for a simple update to the list item I suspect).

I'd love to get rid of these entries. At first I thought it would be really simple, just put an if in the itemUpdated event receiver, and stop everything

if(SPListItem.CheckedOut = false) { //... do nothing }

However I couldn't find any way to ascertain the checkout-status of the listitem. My next thinking was, they hit almost at exactly the same time, so I could just crawl into the auditCollection, filter down to the specific listitem, user, and time (minus a second) and delete the two entries. But, sadly I found out I couldn't delete auditentries.

Anyone got any ideas?

SharePoint 2010 Cumulative Update - Install sequence - Foundation required or not?

For a SharePoint 2010 Server (not Foundation) environment, is it necessary to install the Foundation Cumulative Update as well as the Server Cumulative Update?  (In the same way that with 2007, you install the WSS update and then the MOSS update) The nearest I have found to an answer is here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-gb/sharepoint/ff800847.aspx where it says 'We recommend that you always install SharePoint Foundation 2010 patches before installing SharePoint Server 2010 patches. This best practice ensures that you will always be successful when installing updates.'   In this regard, should 2010 Foundation be thought of as a pre-req, or underlying component, for 2010 Server?   The same question applies to the use of the Updates folder in the install media - for a Server install, should we be extracting both the Foundation and Server Cumulative Updates there, for a correct slipstreamed install?   Thanks.   Rob

Can the cumulative updates be installed during the 2010 upgrade before the configuration wizard is r

For an in-place upgrade of MOSS 2007 Enterprise to SharePoint 2010 Enterprise done by running the installation package, cancelling out of running the configuration wizard, installing all of the cumulative updates, and then run the configuration wizard one time? The "Understanding Updates for SharePoint" white paper states: It is possible to successfully install service packs, hotfixes, and language packs and their updates all at the same time, and only run the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard one time. However, the environment will not be accessible between installing the first update and the final update and running the configuration wizard. It would be nice if this also applied to the 2010 upgrade to say on some machine time. Thanks!Eric

Performance(Load/Stress) testing in the SharePoint 2010?


I have SharePoint Server 2010 Enterprise based small farm. Farm consist of 2 servers. All users are in AD. This Intranet portal is currently on development phase and we don't have all 300 users active. There are currenly only 10 users who are part of the development project.

How to test performance of the SharePoint farm?

In past, I used to test performance of SharePoint 2007 with SQL Server Profiler and Windows Server 2003 Performance Monitor. Is this method good enough to measure actual performance? Any better tools for this?

How about load testing of SharePoint 2010 Server?

Is there tools can generate loads and reports?

Any experience about Load testing with Visual Studio 2010?

Load testing tool the Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Administration Toolkit is for testing SharePoint 2007?

Is Load testing tool totally wrong tool for SharePoint 2010 Server?



Getting Exception: Testing Custom Webservice deployed on SharePoint 2010 using VS 2010 Pro


Hi there, I am a newbie in Webservice programming.
The exception:
The Address property on ChannelFactory.Endpoint was null.  The ChannelFactory's Endpoint must have a valid Address specified.
I have read many sites in internet (found unfortunately only for VS2008 and SP2007) and tried many things, but always failed. I really need your help to solve this problem. Thank you in advance.

I am trying to test a custom webservice deployed on Sharepoint 2010:

The webservice can be called: http://localhost/_vti_bin/StructureSearch/StructureSearchService.svc
And I got instructions like below: 

svcutil.exe http://localhost/_vti_bin/StructureSearch/StructureSearchService.svc?wsdl

This will generate a configuration file and a code file that contains the client class. Add the two files to your client application and use the generated client class to call the Service. For example:

C# .. and so on

So I created a simple c# console app like following:

Installing Cumulative Updates



On a 2 Node SQL Cluster, I run the SQL installation on the Primary Node. I then run SQL setup on the secondary node using the 'add node to failover cluster' option within Setup. I then run SP1 on the Primary Node then run the Cumulative Update (not tested SP2 yet with our apps). 

My question is - do I need to run the Cumulative Update on both nodes or will running it on the Primary Node replicate over?

Installing SQL Server cumulative updates


I am running SQL 2005 32-bit on Windows Server 2008 64-bit. Do I require the X64 or the I386 cumulative updates? I'm not sure if the X64/I386 designation on the updates applies to the OS or the Application. I expect it will probably tell me if I try to install the wrong one but I thought I would ask first.


SBS 2003 R2 SharePoint 3.0 (side-by-side install w/2.0) not accessible after latest .NET updates


After the last MS SBS 2003 update, many of which were related to .NET 2, 3.5 & 4, my side-by-side for SharePoint 3.0 became inaccessible.  Initially I had the non-specific "An unexpected error has occured" so I turned on the more verbose explaination and received the ASP.NET 2.0.50727.0 below.  I have tried:

1. Restarting IIS
2. Restarting Application Pool
3. Reinstating permissions on Application Pool & SharePoint -22836 Website to ensure correct account was being used
4. Alter authentication type in SharePoint 3.0 Central Administration (and then put it back to original state)
5. Uninstalling .NET updated KB2418241, KB2416473 & KB2416472
6. Using SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard after attempted control panel repair of SharePoint 3.0 (this actually failed, which may not be such a bad thing because it would have likely tried an upgrade)
7. Verifying I could access SQL 2005 using SQL Server Mgt Studio via np:\\.\pipe\MSSQL$Microsoft##SSEE\sql\query (I could) and that the users/security appeared correct for WSS_Content_642767e6691d43fd8a350543af751504

I've tried various permutations of the above and then placed every back into original place.  I am literally at my wits end, I have no idea how to fix this.  Any help would be greatly

Applying cumulative updates



Does anyone have instructions for applying a cumulative update?  Does SQL have to be online or offline? If online, does it need to be online on the active node (if you are installing the update on the passive node)?
