Running multiple websites in Sharepoint 2007 with AX2009 Enterprise Portal

  

I need to setup two separate webshops with public access and different layouts using AX2009 Enterprise Portal.

However I am uncertain how to implement two completely different layouts/designs because the Sharepoint Templates are located inside the 12 hive and not seperate for each website.

Can anybody give me some hints on how to do this - and if so, which requirements I have to meet (VSS 3.0 or MOSS Standard / Enterprise) in order to do it.

I am speculating whether I need to setup two separate web-servers with each own Sharepoint installation (and Business Connector Proxy)

Thanks in advance

Using ONLY User Certificates for SharePoint 2010 Authentication/Authorization

  
  Hello, I am relatively new to SharePoint, and was wondering how I can accomplish using only user certificates to authenticate (and eventually authorize) access to the SharePoint 2010 Server (not just IIS). My Environment currently looks like this:  - SharePoint is SSL-enabled - User Browser Certificates (generated using OpenSSL) successfully authenticate to the IIS Server - SharePoint uses Basic Authentication (user/password based on AD credentials) I need to: - Authenticate the user to SharePoint using the User Certificate from my browser (in other words, no password authentication to access the SharePoint website, but use the certificate that was used by iis to be able to log into SharePoint) I am assuming I must use some sort of claims-based authentication.  Ideally, I would like to use ONLY the certification itself as a source of Authorized Repository for authentication. However, I am also open to having the user certificate be linked to Active Directory users as well.  I have done some research on this but am still lost as to how to approach this problem. Is there anyone that has done this or can assist me in getting this to work? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!  

Converting Word Documents library to PDF document library in SharePoint Server 2007

  
My project requires me to create an event reciever such that when a word file is added to one library the same content pdf file should be added to other library also when a word file is updated,edited or checked in the respective pdf file in other document library should be replaced by a new pdf file with the edited word content . Can we do this in Sharepoint 2007 I have seen this can be done in Sharepoint 2010 http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff181518.aspx

Best way to implement authentication and authorization for a sharepoint 2010 website.

  
Hi I come across different authentication methods in Sharepoint 2010. The sharepoint website we are develpoing as of now is Intranet. Later we are planning to move it to Internet(Public) site. What will be the best way to implement authentication and authorization for our website. If windows authentication(Classic mode authentication) is default for a sharepoint website (2010) , I have a few questions ragarding windows authentication. 1) In case of windows authentication, where should we maintain  users? 2) In case of windows authentication, how are the users created? 3) In case of windows authentication, how can I perform authorization.   If we want to use FBA(Form based authentication) in sharepoint 2010, I have a few questions ragarding FBA in sharepoint 2010. 1) In case of FBA(using Claim based authentication) , if we want to use custom database(where we are storing user details and  roles) rather than bulitin SQL membership  provider, how can we achieve this? Can anyone provide some useful resources to implement authentication(Windows or FBA or dual) and authorization for a sharepoint 2010 website with sample code? Please reply ASAP. Thanks & Regards Mahendra Babu

Form based authentication Sharepoint 2007 gets redirected to login page

  
Hi We have sharepoint 2007 site deployed on Windows server 2008, IIS 7.0.  We extended the web application to enable forms based authentication referring to link http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb975136(office.12).aspx#MOSS2007FBAPart1_Intro, we selected Kerberos instead of NTLM, behavior is like, when user tries to login into the site using OOB login.aspx, user again gets redirected to the login page. We tried to extend the web application again but this time we selected NTLM, but this time farm account (also is application pool identity) is not able login and exhibits same behavior as above, but for other users we are able to login. Has anyone come across this behavior? can anyone please guide me in correct the behavior? Regards, RK  Radhakrishna

Sharepoint 2007 - 80GB Documents in 1 document library

  
Hi, My customer wants 'customer docs' in SharePoint. It is now stored on several disks and wants to move it to SharePoint 2007(!). It needs to go into a folder structure.....I'm now investigating the information that needs to move to SharePoint and it turns out a quick scan resulted in 210.000 documents with a total volume of 80GB. Off course this is raw data and thus containing archives, zips, access databases and a lost movie and the like (just like any normal network drive :-)). When I look at the limits and best practices: no folder should contain more then 2.000 items (OK) no doc lib should contain more then 2.000.000 items (more then OK) no file should be larger then 2GB (OK - we set it to a max of 150MB) It is all fine but my concern is the shear size of the total load. Let's say they don't migrate 80GB but 30-50GB. My Question: can a single MOSS 2007 document library hold this kind of documents and total size? What does this mean for overall performance, backup, search indexing, crawling etc etc?  Thnx for any tips!

Migrate/Move Document Library from Sharepoint 2007 to Sharepoint 2010

  
Hi, I have a customer that is setting up a new SPS 2010 environment. They have a Sharepint 2007 environment with one document library containing only PDF files. They will not need any metadata on these documents, but would like it to be moved to the new SPS 2010 environment only to be used for history and free text search. Is there an easy way to accomplish this?   Regards Christian GrannesChristianLLoyd

InfoPath 2007 - Publishing Creates multiple columns on SharePoint Form Library (GUIDS apparently are

  
I have been working this issue for 2 days now.  This has happened to me in the past and I was able to work through it.  It doesn't appear that this time I am going to be so lucky. Issue Description: When publishing an InfoPath form a new column is created that has the same name as the correct one, but a new GUID is created. Troubleshooting steps: I have read this article: http://www.delphi-ts.com/blogs/lozzi/post/2009/06/03/Duplicate-site-columns-in-MOSS-from-InfoPath-Forms.aspx   This was the solution the last time I had this problem.  However, no matter what I do, it is not working now.  I have a column named User Name which is the username of the person that submitted the InfoPath form for use with my Visual Studio workflow.  When the workflow kicks off, it reads this column and attempts to get the value.  The value is blank because a new column with the name User Name now exists and that is where the value is stored.  I attempted to fix it by remapping the GUIDs as described in the article.  I also reverted the code to a previous version from TFS.  None of these worked.   I now have 3 columns called User Name and I can remap the GUID to the second column and third column.  But when I try to map it to the first column (the one I need) it doesn't work. The first column that is circled is the correct column. 

How to hide image in SharePoint 2007 picture library

Currency and number column error with office 2007 document formats in SharePoint 2010 library

  
Hi there,

 

 

The following error occurred within a SharePoint 2010 document library:

As I tried to test out the new SharePoint 2010 environment I changed the metadata from a few documents within a document library. I noticed that the data from the currency und number field was incorrect from a few documents. The numbers looked like that the decimal separator were ignored. For an example: 123.456,78 was saved as 12.345.678.

At first I thought it could be a language incompabilty but if that would be the case: Why would there be other documents which show the correct number?

 

I created another document library to recreate this error. And there I noticed the real reason: Every time I changed these fields from a document which was saved in the office 2007 format the error occurred. The metadata from the documents in the office 2003 format were correct.

 

Has anyone a similar problem or got an idea how to solve this problem?

SharePoint 2007 Enterprise Search Scope Question

  

Hello,

I have configured different search scopes to point to different search contents on my MOSS server and had them displayed on cope dropdown menu.  Everything is working great but with one issue; the selected scope from the default Search page does not stick on the Result page.

For example, I have three scope choices available on my scope dropdown menu: scope1, scope2, and scope3.  For this particular scope Display Group, I have selected "scope1" to be the default.  So when I go to the main Search page, "scope1" is shown as the default choice on the scope dropdown menu.  If I select another scope from the dropdown menu (e.g., scope2) and perform a search, it takes me to the Result page showing the result of the search and also shows what I typed in in the search text box.  The problem is that although I selected "scope2" on the original page's dropdown menu, the result page's dropdown menu shows "scope1" which is the default choice and not what I selected on the original page.  This behavior is confusing to my end users who want to refine their search from the Result page but then they have to re-select "scope2" from the dropdown menu.

My question is, is there a way for me to make the selected scope choice from the original page to stick on the Result page's s
