My SQL Server is running in Windows 2008/64bit environment. I have scheduled more than 20 jobs running in different interval. Jobs are failing often with Unknown error number -2146233082.

LDAP Problem with .NET - Unknown error (0x80005000)


I am trying to create a proof of concept to show how to connect to an LDAP
server and how to search for values but I do not get anywhere. Here is what I
have so far:

Dim objEntry As DirectoryEntry
Dim objSearcher As DirectorySearcher


objEntry = New DirectoryEntry("ldap://www.openldap.com/dc=OpenLDAP,dc=org",
Nothing, Nothing, AuthenticationTypes.Anonymous)

objSearcher = New DirectorySearcher(objEntry, "(ou=People)")
objSearchResult = objSearcher.FindOne()

If Not objSearchResult Is Nothing Then
'Do something
End If

Catch ex As Exception

result.Text = ex.Message & vbNewLine & ex.Source

End Try

My code fails at the line:
objSearchResult = objSearcher.FindOne()

with the unhelpfu error of Unknown error (0x80005000)

As you can see I use the www.openldap.com directory and I can connect
anonymously using the Softeerra LDAP Browser 2.5

Any help would be greatly appreciated 

PS: I know there is already a similar thread (http://forums.asp.net/thread/1028020.aspx) but none of the suggeste

Modifying Customizing EditForm.aspx of Doc lib breaks Upload function - Unknown Error

Part of a bigger design issue really. But does anybody know why customizing EditForm.aspx of a Doc lib breaks the Upload function? and how to fix it so it does not. My version of the editform works great, but after an upload I get Unknown Error the resulting url looks like this: https://xxxxx.edu/sites/xxxx/_layouts/Upload.aspx?List=%7b0404432B-91A3-4E18-9202-5954E3A7E0D2%7d&RootFolder=%2fsites%2fmcpharm%2ftest3&Source=https%3a%2f%2fxxxxx.edu%2fsites%2fmcpharm%2ftest3%2fForms%2fAllItems.aspx --- The bigger design issue - disregard if you like: That said, the bigger design issue is we are trying to relate one list row to many documents, but don't want to seperate the docs into seperate folders and would like the solutoin to be seamless. We are going to add a look up from the doc lib to the list, but did not want to use anythng but the List's ID column. However, we do not want users to have to manually look up List row IDs in that form, and we did not want to use a list column that can be edited, even if we can add a unique column policy. My design and thinking is to build a few custom pages with dataviews to show row level details in both lists (1 to many) and a dataview to drive list level functions like edit, delete and upload docs. I think all the pieces are there except for the less than graceful upload function that fist uploads the file and then asks the

"Unknown error" when adding link to My Links

When I click "Add to my Links" I get an unknown error, but only with some users. "Manage Links" works, mind you.

Unknown error trying to lock file

Hi This error may have been reported in the forum before. If so I apologise for asking again, but I just can't find any reference to it (or any solution).This is using IE7, Vista Business 64bit, Word 2007To summerise: (step by step)1. We log into Sharepoint (from remote locations)2. We locate the list containing items with attached documents3. Selecting the document gives the "harmful..." message4. Microsoft Word loads up with a certificate warning (which we accept)5. We then are prompted to log in a second time.6. It then prompts with a certificate ("Select Certificate") dialog. (We select OK 3 times)7. Word opens the document in Reader view8. Document reports "Server document" at the top of the screen next to the "Edit Document" option.9. Choose "Edit Document"10. and we get "Unknown Error trying to lock file".The same sequence of events using Windows XP has no problems.Switching back to XP is not an option.Various threads scattered through the internet talk of various solutions from port numbers to running Word in XP sp2 compatible mode. None of these solve the problem. Can someone give me some indication of what is going wrong here. I'm not completely up to speed with sharepoint, but if you ask the questions, I'll dig out the answers.Best regardsRobert

Unknown server tag error even after assembly registration


Hey guys,

I don't know what is going on. When I try to add a tab container in my page, it allows me to do that but when I modify the code, the unknown server tag error pops up in the design view of the page.

I checked the source code to see if I had my @register clause in there, and it was there, but still the error shows. I don't know what happened, the last time it worked perfectly.

I have also recently downloaded the cute editor for .net and installed the .dlls to my bin folder and it is showing the same simtoms as well.

Had any1 encountered this problem before and if so how did you fix it?

I am executing a SSRS 2008 report from report manager so it opens in a web browser. Since it is a big report it takes some time for execution. During this time i get an error icon on the left bottom of the web browser and the execution stops. When I click open the error icon to see the details it says,

"Sys.WebForms.PageRequestManagerServerErrorException: An unknown error occurred while processing the request on the server. The status code returned from the server was: 12029." 

I have no clue what it is up to. Please help me on this.

The other relatively smaller reports are coming up successfully without any issue.

Initially my application was simple ASP.NET 2.0 application and later on client decided for implementing AJAX.

My form is containg datagridview inside UpdatePanel and one textbox also. datagridview is having all rows editable. I have master page implemented.

I am updating records on lost focus of any text box(inside datagridview  and outside also) 

Problem is that I am able to run my application locally without any problem. But when I am publishing my website on server it is giving me following error:

Sys.WebForms.PageRequestManagerServerErrorException: An unknown error occurred while processing the request on the server. The status code returned from the server was: 500

I have uploaded following DLL's on server: AjaxControlToolkit.dll, AJAXExtensionsToolbox.dll, Microsoft.Web.Extensions.Design.dll and Microsoft.Web.Extensions.dll
