SharePoint Portal Server 2001: Search and Access Disparate Data Repositories in Your Enterprise


The knowledge worker is greatly empowered if she is able to access information across the enterprise from a central access point.

This article discusses the use of ActiveX Data Objects and the Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning protocol for creating search solutions based on SharePoint Portal Server 2001.

SharePoint: SharePoint Portal Server Makes Your Intranet More Manageable and Easier to Navigate


Most large organizations have mounds of disjointed information in a variety of formats spread out across an enterprise. To make the most efficient use of that information, it must be readily accessible, easy to identify, and simple to navigate. SharePoint Portal Server 2001 unifies information by allowing members of any organization to create, share, and publish documents from a single access point. This article covers the services in SPS that can help an organization improve workflow and information management.

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

Can I deploy a custom site page from the VS2010 SharePoint project?

Hi We're setting up some demos of our sharepoint plugins and want to easily deploy these into sharepoint so that all members of the company can easily get the demos running on their own machines. This is fine for layouts, web parts and so on - but the demo also has a customised sharepoint home page (which I edited in SP Designer) - how do I make this edited home page part of the VS2010 project so that it can be deployed easily to any site collection?   Thanks

Problem with SSO when published Sharepoint portal in ISA 2006

Hi We successfully published Sharepoint portal 2007 with ISA 2006, the portal contains links to OWA, SAP etc. For each the user has to enter credentials. MOSS 2007 uses internal portal name as Indsps02(without FQ domain name), so with ISA we published this link, which does not contain FQDN for the portal and the developer told me it's not possible to change the name to Indsps02.mydomain.com. Published external name is pubip.pubdomain.com and in SSO we mentioned both internal and external domain names, but still it's asking user names and password for each links. Shall anyone one help us to resolve the issue. Thanks in Advance LMS

Delay Activity is not working with SharePoint state machine workflow

Hello,   I have a problem with Delay Activity in Sharepoint state machine workflow. This issue is kind of common to many people but so far I haven't come accross any working solution. In one of the workflow states, I want to add a delay activity to send email notification if no action is taken after certain time. Below is what I have done:   In the targeted state: 1) add one eventDriven activity to handle the normal process (approve the item) 2) add another eventDriven activity to send the reminder email. In this eventDriven activity, I first add a delayActivity, set it to 2 minutes for test purpose. Then I add a Sharepoint SentEmail activity.   With my test, the Dealy Activity is never invoked after timeout period. What should I do to make the delay activity work in the SharePoint state machine workflow? Is there any work around if the delay activity is simply not working there?   Any suggestions are appreciated.

Error - The evaluation period for this version of SharePoint Portal Server has Expired

I am using SharePoint Portal Server 2003 and in the app log I'm seeing this error "The evaluation period for this version of SharePoint Portal Server has Expired" which I believe is causing the search service to not work and I can no longer sign in to the SP central admin console. While I did not perform the install myself it has been running for over a year and according to MS the SP PS 2003 eval was only 120 days so I assume the full version was installed.  Any idea's? There are a couple more errors in the event log but I assume they are symptoms and not causes.

Deploy reusable Workflow on SharePoint Farm with other language pack

Hi all, I created a reusable workflow on my development system with no language pack installed. I saved the workflow as a template and saved the generated wsp. After that I added the wsp to a SharePoint farm at out customer (with the dutch language pack installed) and deployed the wps. Everything was looking good, but the WSP didn't creae a feature which I could activate, so I was not able to use the Workflow. Should it be possible to create a reusable workflow on a system with no langualge pack installed and install it on another system with a language pack installed? Johan.
