Linked Server/ LDAP connection help.

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

Hello

I just got assigned to a project to link two servers. The information I am trying to obtain is in a "Lawson LDAP application" and I'm transfering it to a SQL 2008 DB.

I went through the linked server wizard but I dont really understand the depth of it. 

I have the Host name, protocol, port, Base DN, User DN information.

I did some research on the Lawson software that the company is using but what Provider should be selected in the wizard for this type of program.

As you can see I'm quite lost, Any help would be greatly appreciated.

LDAP - Can't find server

  

Hey people,

I would like to get a persons name from their username - a common query on forums i know, but i haven't managed to get mine working yet and any help would be appreciated.

I currently have this code that I found here: http://www.vbforums.com/showthread.php?t=612655 (Thanks Chris128)

I have adapted it from VB into VB.net. The page renders but when i enter my username into the Username textBox and hit the submit button (Which calls IsUser) I just get "The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted." I have tried lots of other code but I always get this response...

If anyone can help by posting links to a tutorial or another post for code that they know works, i will give it a go.

Cheers,
Jim

A connection could not be made to the report server http://localhost/ReportServer.

  

Hi,

  • I created a Report using Business Intelligence Studio. Its working working well, i can able to view records. But when i try to deploy the report an error occurs specifying that "A connection could not be made to the report server http://localhost/ReportServer. (Microsoft Report Designer)".
  • I open the IIS 7 and find out virtual directories "Reports" and "ReportServer" are available.
  • I check on the browser and type "http://localhost/reports".  I find the browser direct to this url: http://localhost/reports/Pages/Folder.aspx and find error specifying the following one:

         Error:The report server is not responding. Verify that the report server is running and can be accessed from this computer.

  • when i type http://localhost/reportmanager, i found the error:

    HTTP Error 404.0 - Not Found

    The resource you are looking for has been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.

A connection that was expected to be kept alive was closed by the server.

Connection Pooling To SQL Server

  
Hi Folks,

I'm a new SQL PFE and just encountered my first SharePoint installation at a customer site. (The first of many, I'm sure.) I ran some health checks on the SQL Server and noticed 600-700 user connections from the SharePoint account. The SharePoint admins and developers are novice to junior-level, and unfamiliar with connection pooling. I've never worked with SharePoint before and don't know what it's normal behavior is or how connections should be managed by SharePoint.

They indicated the SharePoint system is relatively new and only getting a small amount of use compared to what is expected soon.

SQL Server is handling the load well right now, but if the number of connections grows proportionally to the load, this will become a performance constraint.

1. Is this a normal number of connections for SharePoint?
2. If not, where can the SharePoint staff and myself find a thorough explanation of the principles of SharePoint connection pooling?

Thanks, JDL

Linked Server to access Excel 2007

  

Hi

I'm tried SELECT * INTO XXX FROM OPENROWSET alongwith Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0.

Apparently the query requires the sql account to have SYSADMIN privileges.

Considering that SYSADMIN should not be provided to a database account on a Production Server, I tried using the Linked Server method.

Following is my code.


Exec sp_addlinkedserver 'AB2','Ace 12.0','Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0','\\202.46.215.35\sagarr\Test1\cpc\c2\AB2.xlsx',NULL,'Excel 12.0;IMEX=1'
Exec sp_addlinkedsrvlogin 'AB2','false',NULL,NULL,NULL
go
SELECT * INTO [CPCAB2.xlsx] FROM OPENQUERY([AB2] ,'SELECT * FROM [Sheet1$]')
Exec sp_dropserver 'AB2','droplogins'


Now i get the following error

Error.15247-User does not have permission to perform this action

My Excel file, Database and Windows Application run on separate machines.

i have provided the following privileges

GRANT ALTER ANY LOGIN TO sqlaccount
GRANT ALTER ANY LINKED SERVER TO sqlaccount

FtpWebRequest - how to upload two files on FTP server using only one connection?

  
Hi I am using FtpWebRequest with option KeepAlive = true. When I upload first file I create ftp request object: FtpWebRequest result = (FtpWebRequest)FtpWebRequest.Create("ftp://10.10.6.104/lcsroot//inpt//Test//file1.xml"); I set KeepAlive = true and I do upload file. When I want upload second file I have to create new FtpWebRequest object using new URI FtpWebRequest result = (FtpWebRequest)FtpWebRequest.Create("ftp://10.10.6.104/lcsroot//inpt//Test//file2.xml");   I set KeepAlive = true and I do upload file. The problem is that I have to create new FtpWebRequest so I create new connection to FTP server (I have checked using netstat -b command that my application uses another port number for second file). How can I upload two files (or more) using only on FTP connection/session? Regards

Linked server to access 2010

Instance and Default connection properties on SQL Server 2005

  
We had a sql server fail and I have been having troubles.  I compared the connection properties on the server properties and noticed that multiple default settings are no longer set.  So I'm wondering if during the failure these could have some gotten flipped.  DB's that worked all of a sudden don't work and we had to migrate to a different instance.  I have never changed any of the setings below and wonder what impact they would have if I changed them back to the default of an installed instance? ansi warning is checked ansi padding is checked ANSI NULLS is checked arithmetic abort is checked quoted identified is checked No Count is checked concat null yields null is checked Could anyone tell me how clearing these checked options will impact my db?   -- Paul Bergson MVP - Directory Services MCITP: Enterprise Administrator MCTS, MCT, MCSE, MCSA, Security+, BS CSci 2008, Vista, 2003, 2000 (Early Achiever), NT4 http://www.pbbergs.com    Twitter @pbbergs Please no e-mails, any questions should be posted in the NewsGroup This posting is provided "AS IS" with no warranties, and confers no rights.

SQL Server Configuration Manager: Connection to target machine could not be made in a timely fashion

  
I have a SQL Server 2005 box that was moved from a domain environment to a non-domain environment and was never dropped from its original domain before moving over.  Subsequently a new domain was created at the data center this SQL Server box now resides in.  The machine was dropped from its old domain and joined to the new one.   All the while the service accounts were set to the local admin account.  When I tried to start the Configuration Manager I got the message "Connection to target machine could not be made in a timely fashion.".  I read some blog entries and tried changing all the service accounts to Local System and the error message still came up.   All of the SQL Server services run fine.  It is just this management console that I cannot open.  I wasn't with this employer when this box was moved to the data center so I do not know if it worked prior and there isn't anyone here that could give me its history.   Any help would be appreciated.
