Problems after changing domain name

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

Due to the purchase of our company, we had to change our domain name.
I have a server running SQL Server 2000.
Enterprise Manager is v8.
I have the SQL database back up and running, and can view tables etc.
One of the databases is setup for users to access via a MS Access front end, with linked tables.

I have the system DSN set up in the ODBC data source administrator, and when I test the connection, it is successful.

But when I'm in the database front end, and try to open a form that's based on one of these SQL tables, I get an ODBC--connection 'mySql DBS' failed.
I can't figure out how to fix this...

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Changing user domain

Hi, We have our sharepoint 2007 entreprise farm importing users from two different AD. Let's say 'potato' and 'orange'. We have mysite creation activated in our farm. We have to change one user from potato to orange. The user domain is not in the mysite url of the user. We have http:\\...\personal\fLastName. Questions: 1- How can I change potato\fLastName to orange\fLastName?    We wante to disable potato\fLastName AD account and then create orange\fLastName.     Does it impact profile AND mysite? 2- What are the impact on document history?   Will I still be able to see what potato\fLastName changed or it will show orange\fLastName? Thanks.

Connection string problems using domain name


Presume that the following all point to the same physical server:

  • Host name:  MyServer
  • IP:  10.61.734.321
  • Domain name: oakl.abt.gov

Using the first two naming methods works in my SSRS Report Manager connection string, the last one does not.  So in the following the first two work, the third one does not:

  • Data Source=MyServer;Initial Catalog=ZipCubes
  • Data Source=10.61.734.321;Initial Catalog=ZipCubes
  • Data Source=oakl.abt.gov;Initial Catalog=ZipCubes

The last connection string yields the error message:  Cannot create a connection to data source

The problem is given the widely varied network topology, not every end user can resolve the server name and/or IP address, only the domain name.  Any tips then on how to use that in the connection strings?  Thanks.


Changing AD domain name and keep SharePoint 2010 settings



I currently have a single server with SharePoint  which is inside the aaa.org domain. Due to business requirements they need to change the domain to bbb.org. The main problem that I have is that I need to replace the aaa.org domain which is basically stop it completely and start the bbb.org domain and migrate all users to this domain.

All the settings in SharePoint when installing it, I used users from the aaa.org domain can I change this before the bbb.org domain goes live? What would be the easiest way to "migrate" the users in SharePoint to point to the new domain? 

Thank you very much. I don't have too much experience with SharePoint and I need to have a better idea on it before I change anything else.



Changing the graphics on the home page of a SharePoint site

When you create a site in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services by using the default Team Site template, the home page includes two default graphics. A Windows SharePoint Services graphic appears in the body of the page, and a picture of a house in a circle appears near the site title. You can change these graphics to customize your site. Changing the smaller graphic requires a Windows SharePoint Services compatible Web page editor

AutoGenerateSelectButton="False" ignored when using Domain Service


Crosspost from RIA Services forum: http://forums.silverlight.net/forums/t/196466.aspx

I'm creating a Dynamic Data application in VS2010 and have recently switched to using a Domain Service to give greater control over the data presented to the client. I've noticed that the AutoGenerate<Action>Button attributes on my GridView are being ignored. The presence of the Edit and Delete buttons appear to be contingent on the existence of Update and Delete methods on the partial classes autogenerated in the Domain Service, but i'm not seeing how to control the generation of the Select button. Is there a way to control this from within the Domain Service class?

Problems with Forms Authentication in DD 4 site


Hello,  I am seeing a strange problem with Forms Authentication in my DD site.   A user logs into and can view/edit/delete data all day, but when they execute a Custom Filter against data (for example , a control DynamicData/Filters/CustomerLastNameSearch.ascx ) then the site auth fails, and redirects to the log in screen.

in web.config I have

     <authentication mode="Forms">
            <forms name=".Star" loginUrl="~/Login.aspx" protection="All" defaultUrl="~/Default.aspx" path="/" timeout="43200" cookieless="UseCookies" />     

Offhand, I am thinking two things : that DynamicData/Filters path requires some special handling for some reason, or the control extension ascx is causing auth to get confused.   Has anyone else experienced this or have any suggestions?  Thanks!

Dynamic Data, Domain datasource, Poco and lookups


Mr. Edward,

Excuse my question but: it is necessary to involve in our projects something more than just Dynamic Data or should we make use of all other features available in VS2010 (which will make assume taht they had been left out of the Dynamic Data framework) like: wef, poco, azure, wcf, cloud, mvc, silverllight, ajax, odata, agile, workflow, etc.?

Pass ASP.NET membership identity object across domain?


I am trying to figure a way to SSO with ASP.NET membership and role model.

I can implement custom membership provider which consume web services hosting on a server.

With encryption of data. No problem.

But my question is, If I sign on a website with my provider, got my identity object on that application,

could I pass it to another website on another domain which use the same provider and by doing so, do not need to login again?

If this is possible, I am going to implement this solution. Please tell me what's your take on this.

How do I preserve __viewstate between cross domain posts or how do I get a __viewstate of a Remote S


Here is what I want to do:
I have a local site in which I want to display data from a remote site
Lets say: I want to display data of http://www.abc.com/Default.aspx on my localhost

Now Default.aspx requires some post-data which it sends to itself. Thus the __viewstate and __eventvalidation are posted back to it by itself. I want to directly post the data to Default.aspx from localhost without opening Default.aspx and display the Default.aspx's response on my localhost.

The WebApp on http://www.abc.com is configured for __eventvalidation i.e. I cannot post-data to it from my localhost without getting a __viewstate from it. I also have to post the current __viewstate of http://www.abc.com/Default.aspx to itself

How can I accomplish it?

Problems posting to a package


Hey Y'all

I'm currently creating a program that accesses a mysql package to add data to a few tables.  I'm currently getting an error that says  "

ORA-01403: no data found
ORA-06512: at "JESSE.PKG_WORKPLAN", line 42
ORA-06512: at "JESSE.PKG_WORKPLAN", line 177
ORA-06512: at line 1


These lines are


and 177:add_team_members(V_PROJECT_ID, V_START_DATE, v_FISC_YEAR, V_MEMBERS ,V_NUM_MEMBERS,'add');

Checking these variables in my asp.net page they are all receiving parameters.

Is there a  way to see what the database is actually receiving from the asp.net page?

Or is there another thing to be looking at?


URL Routing and Existing HttpHandler problems


Hello everyone,

I have a problem:

I am currently using 2 features: 

1. HttpHandler

Registering the path="res.aspx" verb="*"

2. URL Routing:

Registering with this pattern: "Company/Edit/{*companyId}","~/CompanyEdit.aspx"

In my CompanyEdit.aspx page, I used httphandler res.aspx to generate some images at client.

  • res.aspx?img=1
  • res.aspx?img=3

Now the problem is here, the page is load success with companyId = "12345", but when the images was loaded at client, it loaded the CompanyEdit.aspx again and show error with wrong id.  

I have debug and find the problem that because when image's urls were generated to client with url=res.aspx?img=1, url=res.aspx?img=3, the asp.net will understand that they are Company/Edit/res.aspx?img=1, Company/Edit/res.aspx?img=3 when it maps with URL Routing pattern.

=> So the CompanyEdit.aspx was load again with wrong id (id now is "res.aspx"). 

So, do you have any ideas to solve this problem, or other design.

Thanks, and best regard
