Anonymous Web Site receives "The request failed with HTTP status 401: Unauthorized"


I set up a test website on my local box and was able to access sharepoint search using the querySearch web service from SP.  After I got it all working properly I transferred the code to the target website that is set up with anonymous access for all people on the fab floor.  However from this website I keep getting the 401 error.  It can't be SP because the same code worked from my local website "localhost".  Any suggestions?  we don't want to have to have the fab people log in so we can't not have the box anonymous.  I would appreciate any suggestions very much!!!

cannot restore a site if it has been restored previously

Hi there, I just found out that if I have restored a site but then realized that I need to put it on a different URL, I can't add it anymore. Here's what happen ... We have 2 SP servers, the live one and the test one: - live --> sp.company.org - test --> sharepoint2010 The plan was to backup the site collection from the live one and restore it on the test server. The site in question called mysite and the current URL (on live server) is http://sp.company.org/sites/mysite Using SharePoint2010 Management Shell, I did: restore-spsite -identity http://sharepoint2010 -path c:\backup\mysite.bak And I realized that mysite was restored at the root of http://sharepoint2010 ... I thought it will re-create the path (/sites/mysite). So I delete that '/' collection and tried to restore it again to a different path. I ran: restore-spsite -identity http://sharepoint2010/sites/mysite -path c:\backup\mysite.bak --> note that the mysite part is a non-existent path to avoid using -force switch but then it gave an error: Restore-SPSite : The operation that you are attempting to perform cannot be completed successfully.  No content databases in the web application were available to store your site collection.  The existing content databases may have reached the maximum number of site collections, or be set to read-only, or be offline, or may already contain a copy of t

MySite user profile site creation of My Content page is created as provisioned failed (unprovisioned

I've been trying to troubleshoot our User Profile Sync and have noticed the profile pages weren't getting updated with everything.  Most content was but things like memberships and the content tabs weren't.  I also saw this error in ULS: ProfSynch: Exception attempting to enumerate site 25a72070-4249-4698-ae99-c2a45d25b08e for ContentDB 23a6e3ef-6d56-4bde-825e-95c6924e2f91: Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.ProfileSynchronizationInternalException: ProfSynch: The site with ID 25a72070-4249-4698-ae99-c2a45d25b08e cannot be synchronized due to an unprovisioned root web.      at Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.SiteSynchronizerCollection.GetSynchInfoForSite(SqlDataReader dr, SynchInfo info)      at Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.SiteSynchronizerCollection.<get_Elements>d__0.MoveNext() I checked in the MySite database under the webs table and noticed all the My Content sites for all of our users had the flag column with the number 1315 in them - (meaning unprovisioned as the error above states).  Cross checking with the User Sync Profile database under the SiteSynch table I noticed all of the sites have NULL for the value under both the LastSynch and ChangeToken columns (The User Profile Service Application - User Profile to SharePoint Full Synchronization  timer job takes care of populating that).&

version dependency while backup restore of SharePoint 2007 Site Collections


hi all

I am aware of a version dependency on the stsadm -o backup/restore operation.

But will the same dependency exist for a content DB backup restore..

i.e. for example will we able to restore a content DB backup taken from a server with version say to a server with say assuming that the versions of SQL is the same in both cases.

Will the version difference in SQL create issues

Thanks in advance




Restore Site Collection on a Different Farm with Taxonomy Field



I am trying to restore a site collection from my production environment into a staging environment (completely separate farm).  However, my site collection contains a Pages library which has a taxonomy field that points to a Managed Metadata Service term store in the production environment.  When the site collection is restored in the staging environment, the items in the Pages library have invalid content in the taxonomy field.  Ie. The values are there, but when I try and edit an item, the values in the picker are invalid. 

I have imported the same term set in the term store in the staging environment but it still doesn't work.  I am assuming it is because all of the terms have different guids in each environment so the values are not 'synching' up properly... 

Can I restore the Managed Metedata Service application from my production environment into my staging environment?  Or, am I going about this process in the wrong way entirely?

Thank you for any advice.


MOSS 2007 Restore Operation Failed: The specified component exists.


I have a production MOSS farm and selected to backup my content database to a share on my network so I can move its data to my development environment. I used the Sharepoint Central Administration GUI to do this backup and selected New Configuration since I didnt want to use the same config as my production server (i.e - my development environment has its own farm with different naming conventions for those servers), and then changed the name of the Database server and kept the same name as the current _SITE database in my DEV environment. The backup ran fine, but now on restoring from the backup I receive this message below:


Object portal1_SITE failed in event OnRestore. For more information, see the error log located in the backup directory. SPException: The specified component exists. You must specify a name that does not exist.

Below is some information from the log...
