Use VS Project Module to Deploy Page to Central Admin

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Does anyone know if it's possible to use a Visual Studio project Module to provision a page to the Central Admin site when a SITE feature is activated?

If I use  

<Module Name="MirrorAdmin" Url="_admin/Datagility">
    <File Path="MirrorAdmin.aspx" Url="MirrorAdmin.aspx" />

(or similar, I haven't copied and pasted) the file gets deployed to a folder called _admin under the site where my solution gets deployed. Do I need to create a separate solution and deploy it to the admin site or is there something I can use in the Url= element to deploy the page to the correct place?

SharePoint 2007 Central Admin - blank page, isapimodule error in IIS


I've got a Windows 2008 SP2 server runing x64.

When i try to access the SharePoint Central Admin site, I just get a blank page. No errors in the Windows logs, nothing showing up in the SharePoint logs. The IIS log shows a 500 error.

I enabled Failed Request Tracing for the 500 status code, which gives me the following information:

ModuleName IsapiModule

Notification 128

HttpStatus 500

HttpReason Internal Server Error

HttpSubStatus 0

ErrorCode 2147942593


Can I deploy a custom site page from the VS2010 SharePoint project?

Hi We're setting up some demos of our sharepoint plugins and want to easily deploy these into sharepoint so that all members of the company can easily get the demos running on their own machines. This is fine for layouts, web parts and so on - but the demo also has a customised sharepoint home page (which I edited in SP Designer) - how do I make this edited home page part of the VS2010 project so that it can be deployed easily to any site collection?   Thanks  

Not able to browse Central Admin Page



I had installed SharePoint Server 2007  on windows server 2003 machine. I am able to browse my sites, which were created through the Central Administration.

How to rectify this?

Thank you

Can't Deploy, Repair Install or Go to Central Admin



Sometime recently (I'm not sure exactly when) something with my Sharepoint install seems to have broken. Through Visual Studio, I can no longer deploy and debug web parts and get the following error:  Error occurred in deployment step 'Recycle IIS Application Pool': The local SharePoint server is not available. Check that the server is running and connected to the SharePoint farm.
If I try to go into Central Administration I get this error: "A Failure occurred when accessing the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Web Server Extensions\14.0\WSS registry key. Repair this product by selected it from the Add/Remove Programs Menu. Curiously, I can navigate to it just fine (only the task menu button doesn't work)

When I try to repair the installation I get this error: Microsoft Sharepoint Server 2010 configuration did not complete successfully. One or more required Office components failed to complete successfully. For more information, consult the setup log file.

I am the system account on the farm and I have appropriate rights to all relavent databases. I can't help but think that all of these things are related, does anyone have any insights?

Where is StartPage.cproj : Custom Start Page Project Template


I am reading through Wrox Professional Visual Studio 2010.
In Chapter 3, there is an example of how to customize and extend the start page.

So he wants you to copy the files from C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\StartPages\<Culture>
C:\Users\<user name>\Documents\Visual Studio 10\StartPages. He say you may need to create this because it may not exist by default. So I would just copy the files into:
C:\Documents and Settings\Sam\My Documents\Visual Studio 2010\StartPages and work from there right?

Then he says double click StartPage.csproj to opent the WPF project in Visual Studio 2010.
But StartPage.csproj simply does not exist anywhere.

I have installed Visual Studio 2010 sdk and the Custom Start Page Project which shows up in extension manager.
I just can't figure out how to use it.

I am on Windows XP.

calling a web service on a remote server from a ASPX page (web site project VS2005)

HI,I am maintaining a web site project in VS2005 and have to call a new web service on a remote server. I've done add web reference, and created the .wsdl and .discomap files in the app_webReference folder.  When I try to create a object representing the web service in the code ( wsnamespace.serviceName ws = new wsnamespce.serviceName(); ) the code wouldn't compile.The web site project is already calling other web services. When I right click on the type representing the web service and "go to definition" it takes me to a proxy class (derived from of course SoapHttpClientProtocol) in the metadata. I think this is what's missing for  the new web service i'm trying to call. Have I missed any steps?Thanks in advance.-me

Web Application list in Central Admin in 2007

Can somebody tell me where Central Admin pulls the data for: Central Administration > Application Management > Web Application List   Somehow, the name for one of my applications has changed, but the URL has remained the same.  The website content itself, the website in IIS, and the content database name all still appear to be intact and nothing has changed there.  Everything seems to be fine, I just happened to notice that the NAME of this one web application has changed and it's really bothering me that it could possibly be pointing to the wrong data.  HELP please!

Cannot find Manage services under Service Application of Central admin

We have Intranet solution based on SharePoint 2010 small farm. Somehow we don't see Manage services on server under the Service Applications in the central admin. Portal seem to work otherwise fine.

We have tried to login with Admin, SP_Farm and SP_Admin user, but access denied every time. I checked who have Full user rights in the Central admin. It is SP_Admin Admins of the Sitecollection is SP_admin and Administrator. Why this happens?Kenny_I

Cannot login to Sharepoint 2010 central admin

Hi Guys, I am relatively new to MOSS and have started investigating the product. I had MOSS 2010 fully funtioning in a test environment and had an issue with authentication. Each time a user accessed the site for the time, they would be prompted for a username and password. I then came across an article that indicated i should enable Kerberos authentication in Central Admin. I did this but once the configuration completed i could no longer access Central admin. The normal site sites are available and functioning. What could the issue be? thank you,

Central Admin (and all other sites) 404 error

I have a MOSS 2007 installation on Windows Server 2008, all 64-bit.  I still have this setup in test phase but there has been a lot of work put into it and was near ready to start receiving content when this happened.  There is one externally facing site collection using port 443 forwarded through our router and mapped through DNS, as well as the default websites and the central administration site.  The only sites being used are the one on 443 and central admin.  Both sites were working and accessible as of yesterday but now they are not.  Directly before the sites became inaccessible two things happened, so I'm not sure which is the cause.  First, updates were installed, and secondly a blank IIS site was created on port 443 as a test, then was deleted out of IIS manager.  Attempts to log into Central Administration now bring up a 404 error although it does take the credentials and Explorer reports "Website found. Waiting for reply." Attempts to access an externally facing site do the same, the web page displays the message to accept the server certificate as well as the logon dialog box, but then it simply times out and brings up a 404 error.  A number of errors have also been reported in event viewer over the past 24 hours: ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------The description for Event ID 27745 from source Windows Share

Central Admin Site got replaced with another site

Hi, My Central admin site got replaced by some other site. I guess someone had restored their site on the central admin site. Is there anyway I can bring back my Central Admin Site? If I run the Sharepoint Configuration Wizard, will it fix it? Thanks,

Backup through Central Admin fails; works using stsadm

Hi, I'm trying to schedule automatic backups of my SharePoint 2007 site.  I wrote a .vbs script that does the backup with the following line:   objShell.Run "cmd /c stsadm.exe -o backup -directory """ & BACKUP_DIR & SITE_DIR & """ -backupmethod full -item ""Farm\Windows SharePoint Services Web Application\SharePoint - SharePointSites"" > """ & CURR_DIR & "log.txt""", 0, True   I ran the vbs script from the command line and everything worked fine.  I used the Windows Task schedule to run the script as a scheduled task.  The script ran fine and the backup completed successfully (according to the logs), but now if I go to the Central Admin page and try to do a restore, I get the error:   The backup/restore job failed. In order to rerun the backup/restore the timer job must be deleted from the Timer Job Definitions page. Failure Message: Backup or restore is already running.   The odd thing is I can do another backup or restore using stsadm at the command line and it works fine.  I can also run the scheduled task to do another backup and that works fine too.  I just can't do any backups or restores from Cetnral Admin anymore.   Any suugestions or ideas? Thanks. -Cynthia
