General question steps to configure mysites in SharePoint 2010

I am trying to configure the mysite web application, so I have created a DNS record "mysite" and created a web application for the mysite and created a mysite host site collection on it. Now I have read somewhere that u have to create managed paths for the profile and the mysite, which actually corresponds with the name of the DNS record/mysite webapp. For some reason when i am opening the mysite, i get a url something like http://my/my. What am i doing wrong? Can somebody just give me a step by step approach on how to configure Mysites in MOSS 2010?I am a SharePoint Infrastructure Engineer, focussed on Administration and Installation of SharePoint Server environments.

question on attachments/document upload in SharePoint

Scenario: I have business need where I need to attach some documents to a document library. My users fill out a form, which is a custom List Form in a list called "Request" but on the same form I want to provide my users a document upload feature which will save the document to a document library called "Request Documents".

In other words, request information such as Title, Department, Description etc get saved to "Request List" (SharePoint List) whereas the documents attached/uploaded (if there are any from the user) while filling the same request form out, get saved in the "Request Documents" (SharePoint Document Library) with the same ID #. If Request ID was 100, then the uploaded document(s) in the Document Library should also be 100.

I tried a few techniques out, and I'm reading some more on Data Source Library of SharePoint but I believe I need some help from the community before I do anything further.

Sharepoint slide library adding functionality.

The slide library in Sharepoint allows you to upload Powerpoint slides to it, then to copy a slide to a new presentation and edit it, or check it out so you can edit it and check back in the changes. Unfortunately the ability to check out multiple slides at once to edit is not possible, only the ability to copy them to a new presentation, so you lose all data stored with them.  I am trying to find a way to be able to check out multiple slides at once, then be able to check them in when you have made changes.   My questions are basically:  Can I add a button to the Sharepoint slide library interface? How can I interact with the client machine in terms of opening Powerpoint and getting them to be able to check out the slides? I have the Sharepoint VSTO tools installed and this must be for Sharepoint 2007. Thanks

General Question About Remembering Property Values Between Postbacks

Here are examples of two different ways I've found to story Property values between postbacks:    private bool Initialized    {      get      {        return Convert.ToBoolean(this.Attributes["Initialized"]);      }      set      {        this.Attributes["Initialized"] = value.ToString();      }    }    private int DataTableRowIndex    {      get      {        return (int)ViewState["DataTableRowIndex"];      }      set      {        ViewState["DataTableRowIndex"] = value;      }    }I'd appreciate any comments about differences between these two approaches [Attributes vs. ViewState].  Is one better or worse?Robert

General Setup Question regarding Ssytem.XML assembly

Hello,I have a solution running perfectly well on one machine (or actually quite a few machines).  All the code is in source safe and I am trying to set up a new machine with the solution but keep getting the following build errors:'XName' is ambiguous in the namespace 'System.Xml.Linq'. InternalXmlHelper.vb 'XNamespace' is ambiguous in the namespace 'System.Xml.Linq'. InternalXmlHelper.vb 'XElement'is ambiguous in the namespace 'System.Xml.Linq'. InternalXmlHelper.vb 'XAttribute' is ambiguous in the namespace 'System.Xml.Linq'. InternalXmlHelper.vb and so on...The main difference that I noticed was that on the machines where the application builds, in the property page of the project whgere the build erros are occurring I check the reference list and I see a reference to the System.XML assembly (GAC,  However in the machine with the build errors, even when I try to add a reference to the System.XML assembly I get no error messages, but afterr adding the assembly does NOT appear in the reference list.In addition I have verified that I am able to create a new web application without any build or runtime errors on the machine experiencing these issues.Any feedback would be greatly appreicated.Thanks.

SharePoint 2007 Enterprise Search Scope Question



I have configured different search scopes to point to different search contents on my MOSS server and had them displayed on cope dropdown menu.  Everything is working great but with one issue; the selected scope from the default Search page does not stick on the Result page.

For example, I have three scope choices available on my scope dropdown menu: scope1, scope2, and scope3.  For this particular scope Display Group, I have selected "scope1" to be the default.  So when I go to the main Search page, "scope1" is shown as the default choice on the scope dropdown menu.  If I select another scope from the dropdown menu (e.g., scope2) and perform a search, it takes me to the Result page showing the result of the search and also shows what I typed in in the search text box.  The problem is that although I selected "scope2" on the original page's dropdown menu, the result page's dropdown menu shows "scope1" which is the default choice and not what I selected on the original page.  This behavior is confusing to my end users who want to refine their search from the Result page but then they have to re-select "scope2" from the dropdown menu.

My question is, is there a way for me to make the selected scope choice from the original page to stick on the Result page's s
