Troubleshooting when nothing happens

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 01, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

This is not a specific problem. Many times, after setting everything up, the controls, the code-behind, etc. and after fixing the obvious problems, there comes the moment when the page comes up, your information shows fine, you make changes, click submit and .... nothing happens. No error message, nothing. It just posts and comes back.  I hate that!

How do you troubleshoot that? Am I missing some log/error window that displays what went wrong? So far what I do is painfully putting going step by step, to see if I detect anything wrong somewhere (many times I don't). Nothing changes in the database, it just ... doesn't do anything.   Is it only me? How do you find the problem when there is nothing telling what went wrong where?

Troubleshooting Webservices


Hello All,

I have been working on web services for quite sometime. Have been creating and consuming simple to intermediate levels of web services. But now i want to start using some third party web services.

I have got to know that there are good ways to troubleshoot issues in our own web services or any third party web services. For example, if a particular web method was working since 3 months and all of a sudden, it stopped working as expected or its not giving the results now. In these kind of situations, what are the best approaches to troubleshoot the issue. 

Can someone please share some points on this? May be some right articles having some examples will give me the clear picture. Please let me know. Thanks.

Troubleshooting IIS 7 network performance issues and TCP Chimney Offload, Receive Side Scaling, and

There is a lot of posts on http://forums.iis.net related to network performance.  Actually, there was two today!.  The problems can be different, but the common thread seems to be network performance.  Windows Server 2008 (and R2) enabled a new network feature by default which has been referred to as "Scalable Networking Pak".  Some people refer to the feature as TCP Chimney Offload.  Either way, in my experience this feature causes more issues than it solves.  If you are having a network related issue or performance, this is a easy setting to check and verify if disabling portions or all of them can resolve the issue.   KB article on TCP Chimney Offloadhttp://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/network/dd277645.aspx KB Article how to show your settings and disablehttp://support.microsoft.com/kb/951037 I strongly encourage test these changes in a non-production environment before making changes to your production systems!

Open SQL Server Connection Troubleshooting

Hello, This is regarding ASP.Net (VB) 2.0 and SQL Server 2008.  My project's (there is only one in my solution) has a "Start Action" set to a "Specific Page" (..\Forms\frmMain.aspx).  Occasionally (though not always) a large number of connections (30+) will be opened prior to the frmMain.PreInit event.  These connections stay open for quite some time.  I am closing all of my connections with extreme prejudice.  In my "finally" clause of my try...catch I have myconnection.close.  Immediately after the "End Try" I have myconnection.dispose (redundant, I know).  I have accounted for all connections.  I placed a breakpoint on frmMain.PreInit and then (sometimes) a large number of connections (used SSMS to run sp_who and sp_who2) will have just opened.  What would open a large number of connections prior to the starting page's preinit event?  I am closing (and then disposing) all of my connections.  I thought that I must be missing a myconnection.close in the "finally" clause, but I have looked repeatedly and cannot find anywhere that a connection is open and then not closed.  Also, I do not believe that I have even opened a connection prior to the frmMain's preinit event.        

Troubleshooting an XSL Select to another List in a Dataview.

I've done this before to join in some column from another List into a dataview.    I've looked over the two list and  this line of code for a few hours now. It's producing no output, when I know there are matches. <TD class="{$IDASV40H}">    <xsl:value-of select="/dsQueryResponse/Applicant/Rows/Row[@ID = current()/@ApplicantID]/@AName"/></TD> None of the colums or lists have been renamed. None of the columns have spaces in the names. I want to make sure I'm reading this right.  do I need to define current()? Any bood way to troubleshoot this in Designer? any issue with trying to compare @ID? Thanks.

Troubleshooting Alert Emails

Hi, I have a case where one particular user is not receiving alert emails for a particular doc library.  Any help or further insight will be appreciated. Here's some background and steps I've already taken to investigate/correct the issue: MOSS 2007 SP 2 farm, multiple WFE servers, MOSS 2007 SP1 was the original install to this farm. This user is able to receive the confirmation email after the alert is initially created.  It is just the alert emails that are not being received.  The alert was created using the immediate notification setting. This same user, user A,  is also able to receive the confirmation email and subsequent alert emails from another site collection (different content DB) on the same web app of the same farm.  That alert was created using the immediate notification setting.  Another user, user B, is able to receive the confirmation email and subsequesnt alert emails from the doc library that user A is not. User A has contribute permissions on the doc library the alert was created for, User B has full-control permissions. Executed the query "select * from eventcache where eventdata is not null" against the related content database.  The query returned 0 results. Verified that the Windows SharePoint Services Timer service is running on the index server and all WFE servers. Checked the Timer Job Status

Troubleshooting query question?

Hi All, We have below query which is working perfectly fine:-  ;WITH CTEA AS ( SELECT ....... FROM TABLEA LEFT OUTER JOIN TABLEB ON TABLEA.COLUMN1 = TABLEB.COLUMN2 ), CTEB AS ( SELECT ........ FROM CTEA -------------- record count of CTEA is 2 million records EXCEPT SELECT ... FROM TABLEC ), CTEC AS ( SELECT ..... FROM CTEB GROUP BY ........ ) SELECT * ----------------------- records count of CTEC is 30-40K records, execution time 2 mins FROM CTEC  But we have to do below query instead of "SELECT * FROM CTEC":- SELECT ......... FROM CTEA INNER JOIN CTEC ON CTEA.COLUMN0 = CTEC.COLUMN0 AND CTEA.COLUMN1 = CTEC.COLUMN1 AND CTEA.COLUMN2 = CTEC.COLUMN2 AND CTEA.COLUMN3 = CTEC.COLUMN3 AND CTEA.COLUMN4 = CTEC.COLUMN4 But above is not giving us any result for more than 30 mins, finally we have to kill the query, we tried it is not doing any cartesian product, so can anybody help us to troubleshoot where I'm doing mistake and what is wrong? Please feel free more questions for doubts, Also my 5 columns where I'm doing join operation are VARCHAR columns. Any Help ? Also let me know if their any other way to write above query instead of JOIN, main purpose is to reduce the execution time. Thanks Regards, Kumar

Content Query Web Part troubleshooting


I am trying to use the Content Query Web Part, but it is not working properly.  On the Page where the Web Part lives, the content under the title reads...

"Unable to display this Web Part. To troubleshoot the problem, open this Web page in a Windows SharePoint Services-compatible HTML editor such as Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer. If the problem persists, contact your Web server administrator."

When I click through to "Modify Shared Web Part," I get what looks like a stack dump (to my uneducated eye).

microsoft .net framework troubleshooting


My computer needed to be "reset" at the beginning of this year.  I let my computer go through dozens of "updates".  When it came to the .net 3.5 sp1, it has been stuck for almost 9 months and cannot complete.  It says it was interrupted and cannot continue.  I have tried in vain to research a solution, but am not sure what I am looking for.

I am pretty good at computers, but the thing that really bugs me is that Microsoft (and the great minds) cannot come up with a "fix" type of button that -lets say I want to get to the ms .net framework 4.0, but I am having errors, that it will examine what I have and don't have and "repair" my files to completion.  I thought this is what the "update" deal was all about.

Also, there are so many types of the .net framework downloads, I don't know what is relevent for my computer or not.  I have the newest version of Roxio Creator and cannot get it installed because of these files that will not complete.  It seems that there are "repair" options for most of the stuff in microsoft and our programs, please help us who don't dissect computers for a living.  I need help....thank you!

troubleshooting a .NET/WPF 4.0 application requiring 2.0 to run


I am very confused what is going on with my application.

I have a complex C++/CLI and WPF application that I've migrated to .NET 4 to take advantage of the WPF goodies. All our projects in the solution are targeting 4.0 I'm having problems though with the deployment and running of our app on fresh XP installs (without .NET previously installed).

Right now the installer will install the Visual C++ 2010 redist and .NET 4 client profile, then our application. On XP this doesn't seem to be enough. In it's current state it will crash upon running the .exe. By chance I guessed perhaps our CLI based .dll has some dependencies on some old libs, so I also installed the Visual C++ 2008 redist. Now when I run I see the splash screen for our application, but I get an error dialog that says:

"To run this application, you first must install one of the following versions of the .NET Framework: 2.0.50727"

If I click the yes button it redirects me to install .NET 4 again. For kicks I tried installing the .NET 3.5 SP1 framework and my application runs.

How can I troubleshoot what is going on?


I also tried instead of installing .NET 3.5 SP1 but the standalone 2.0 SP2 redist and my application also works.

Is there something in 2.0 that is not available in 4?

how do you balance admin and developer roles in managing security/audience and troubleshooting user


We're a 500-person services business, relatively new to SharePoint and recreating many legacy applications in SharePoint.  We have a couple developers and an administrator and have been trying very hard to segregate those roles.  The administrator controls Audiences, SharePoint groups, Distribution Lists, etc.  Developers have read access to Active Directory, but no rights to view or edit SP groups, Global Audiences, or Distribution Lists.   When user issues arise, the developer must always suspect a group membership problem but can't know enough to confirm or deny.

I would love to hear how others handle this.  Do your developers have admin rights? (And what problems does that cause?).  Do you have strict naming conventions to differentiate GA from SP from Dist List?  Do you have 3rd party tools to synchronize groups, so you can have perfect confidence that the Global Audience "Busboys" contains exactly the same users as the Active Directory group "Busboys?"  Is there a way for developers to have read-only access to the various groups so they can troubleshoot membership problems without endangering security?
