WebTemplate or Site Definitions in SharePoint 2010

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 30, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

Hello,

With MOSS 2007 Microsoft has a clear recommendation for using site definitions as against site templates .stp.

With SharePoint 2010, we now have webtemplates .wsp, but are there any best practicies defined to identify the usage scenerios for SiteDefinitions Vs WebTemplates and which approach should be better to manage large scale customizations keeping in perspective scope for future upgrades, ease of deployment and competibilty with future microsoft platform upgrades.

Lookging forward for any guidence on this!

Regards
Saurabh

Cannot crawl sharepoint site and mysite after database attach upgrade form sharepoint 2007 to 2010.

  
After database attach upgrade site and mysite from sharepoint 2007 to 2010 , I have full crawl and get "The crawler could not communicate with the server. Check that the server is available and that the firewall access is configured correctly. If the repository was temporarily unavailable, an incremental crawl will fix this error. ( Error from SharePoint site: HttpStatusCode ServiceUnavailable The request failed with HTTP status 503: Service Unavailable. )" for mysite and get "Access is denied. Verify that either the Default Content Access Account has access to this repository, or add a crawl rule to crawl this repository. If the repository being crawled is a SharePoint repository, verify that the account you are using has "Full Read" permissions on the SharePoint Web Application being crawled." for sharepoint site. The content access account for search is "db_owner" of both of site and mysite. How do I solved this problem ?

When Upgraded a site from Wss 3.0 to Sharepoint foundation 2010, subsites are not working

  
HI ALL, I recently migrated an old Sharepoint site from WSS 3.0 to Sharepoint foundation 2010. There were no problems during the upgrade and the stsadm command displayed the message that upgrade completed successfully. However when I am accessing the sub-sites from outside the server, I am able to see the content, but when I go to Site Settings, I get an error "File not found". Also the Views for the sub-sites are not working. However on accessing the sub-sites from the Server everything is working fine. Can anyone please help me?
