Upgrading My Site Web sites without upgrading shared service database

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint


We have upgraded our My Site using database attach upgrade approach - it took a very long time but apparently the site is working.

We have NOT upgraded the shared services database as described in http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc263299.aspx / http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc263299.aspx#SSP .

'Are we asking for trouble' or is this approach without anny real consequence?

Error upgrading MOSS 2007 publishing site to 2010 - Exception: Column 'PublishingStartDate' does n


We are in the process of testing a database attach upgrade from MOSS 2007 to SharePoint Server 2010. We are running into an issue when we attach the database with the main portal site collection which has the publishing features enabled. In the upgrade error log, we are receiving the following errors:

"User cannot be found" error when creating My Site after upgrading to SP2 for MOSS 2007



Hope this is the place for sharepoint gurus?

I upgraded MOSS2007/WSS3 to SP2 and since then I have been unable to get My Site to create new sites for existing domain users.

Some of the domain users created their My Site before the SP2 upgrade and they still work. We just cannot create new My Sites for existing domain users.

Now when we try to create a My Site we get this error:

"There has been an error creating the personal site. Contact your site administrator for more information."

I checked the event logs and usually no error is recorded when this happens so sharepoint does not even give me a breadcrumb (thanks!).

However, on one occassion I did get an event message after fiddling here and there and many attempts at trying to create a My Site, hooray! See below for all the glorious details of the event message, but the basic error is:

"User cannot be found".

I have checked the My Site settings of shared services (SSP1), veiwed user profiles, all the domain users are imported. So I have no idea why when creating a My Site it fails?

I have searched many forums and although they get the same error it seems to be for different reasons so the solutions don't help my situation.

Is there somewhere in Sharepoint that these domain users need to exist? Would I be able to c

Problem upgrading to MVC3 - System.Web.Routing



I'm trying to upgrade to .NET 4 and MVC 3.

When trying to compile my project, I get the error:

Error 1 The type or namespace name 'Routing' does not exist in the namespace 'System.Web' (are you missing an assembly reference?) C:\Users\spencer\Desktop\weblauncher\Common\MVCConfig.cs 4 18 Common

The type or namespace name 'Routing' does not exist in the namespace 'System.Web' (are you missing an assembly reference?)

I do have the System.Web.Routing in my references for the project.

BUT - when I try to view System.Web.Routing in the OBJECT BROWSER, nothing is inside!  The System.Web.Routing namespace is not in there - the entire thing is empty!  Could it that the dll is corrupted?  I tried to reinstall the .NET 4 and MVC 3 stuff, but its still empty!

The dll is coming from here:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\.NETFramework\v4.0\System.Web.Routing.dll

UpdatePanel is not a known element - message when upgrading to 1.0 ajax


It worked on one of my old pages.  I change the web.config, renamed all the <asp.

On some aspx page it doesn't recognize the updatepanel.  It only does on one page.  If I create a new aspx page with a different name - then it works.

Should I just create a new web project ajax - then copy all my code into there?  Or is there a way to get those old pages to recognize the new ajax controls?

VS2010: Upgrading projects from VS2008

I just upgraded my VS2008 solution to VS2010 and have run into a problem. I have a .NET C# application that references a managed C++ DLL, which in turn links to a native static library. All this works just fine. However, whenever I attempt to run the C# application, Visual Studio claims that the native static library is out of date and must be recompiled. It does that even after I've just compiled the native library. When allowing VS2010 to build the native project, the only thing it does is this: 1>  LibraryName.vcxproj -> C:\Bleh\Blah\LibraryName.lib Is there a way I can figure out what's causing VS2010 to think the project is out of date?
