Need Help Setting Up Developer Environment

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 08, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

If your environment looked like the following how would you set up your developers with VS2010?

Our SharePoint development server farm has two VMWare VMs with a separate SQL server on SQL 2008 R2. We've currently got 6GB of RAM and a total of 40 GB of disk space on the WFE. We will be utilizing RBS on the SQL server as well - data will go out to SAN storage.

We have requirements for building dashboard solutions using BCS and tying into other SQL or Oracle-based applications, creating complex workflows and maintaining consistency across the farm. We are moving to Windows 7 for all of our users - some of our developers have migrated and some have not. There is an existing unwaiverable policy that no desktop can have IIS enabled. We've got source code configuration control software available. None of our developers currently have MSDN licenses - they have stand-alone VS licenses.
Given all that, how would you set things up to give the developers the assets they need to do the development working within policy constraints and keeping the cost manageable?

Visual Web Developer 2010 Express "Copy Web Site" using different login


I created a site and am trying to grant another pesron access to upload changes to it without giving them my super-user login.

I made a login for her but I can't test whether it works or not because no matter how much I "disconnect" in the Copy Web Site page of VWD 2010, reconnecting to the same site always logs in as my superuser account without prompting me for a login again.

How do I test is the account it set up correctly before having her try to upload to it?    I want to force the login to remote site dialog to pop up again to test her account.

Any ideas?

Setting default localization



I ever thought that I can set a default localization if the users one (which is set in the browser) isn't available.

I've implemented my localresource files for localization. The start.aspx.resx contains all texts and elements for German use and the start.aspx.en.resx for English users. When I switch the language in the browser settings from German to English everything works fine and the english text is displayed. But when I switch to an other language which is not German or English, it takes defaulty the german resource files.

I've set

UICulture="auto:en-US" Culture="auto:en-US"

as well, but it didn't assume the .en resource file automatically. (For example when I enter the website and switch the browser language to French or Italian it should take the english resource files.)

Thanks and regards,
