Setting Up New Web Application Issue

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 11, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I am trying to setup a new web app on my SP 2007 server in a Win2003 domain.

I the "Create New Web Application" webpage the random port assigned is 19761. I want to use the site as a main portal so I entered the header as http://portal.gracenet.net:19761. The application pool name is the same.

I also made an A record in DNS titled "portal" and provide the ip address of the SP app server.

When I press "OK" I get the error "Invalid application pool name"

What do I need to do?

An Excel Services Application setting does not allow the requested operation to be performed.

I'm facing a problem with Excel services and JSOM. On the page load, I'm registering a JSOM with a Visio webaccess webpart.

Deadlock issue in SQL Server 2008 R2 (.Net 2.0 Application)

The Sql Server 2008 R2 instance in question is a heavy load OLTP production server. The deadlock issue came up a few days back and is still unresolved. We received the Xml deadlock report that listed the stored procedures involved in the deadlock and some other details. I'll try to list down the facts from this xml first: Two stored procedures are involved in the deadlock, say SP1 and SP2. According to the report SP1 was running in Isolation level "Serializable" and SP2 was running in "ReadCommitted" . We have investigated the following: Are we setting IsolationLevel of SP1 to "Serializable" inside SP or in Code? - No. Is any other SP whose IsolationLevel is "Serializable" calling SP1? - No. Are the table used by SP1 called by any other SP that has Isolation Level as "Serializable"? - Yes. There are SPs that have Isolation Level set to "Serializable" and access the same tables as SP1, but we don't know whether they were running at the time of deadlock or not as the deadlock report only showed SP1 and SP2. Lines of thought: We have considered the following possible causes: Deadlock is occurring because SP1 is running as "Serializable". - Why is this SP running in Serializable when I haven't set it? Is the Isolation level escalating (like locks do)? If we figure this out and make it run as ReadCom

WPF Application Size Issue

I'm planning to work on a desktop application using WPF. My biggest concern is, how to distribute this application to my users. It seems size of the framework 3.5 is near 200 MB. My users are not expected to download and deploy this much size from internet. Please suggest any alternative for this problem.

Issue with customizing Application templates


We created a website using the application template Change Request Management provided by Microsoft at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyId=7BCEA3BD-FE37-4532-A58B-051DA6A6900A&displaylang=en.

A sample website created with the above template can be seen at: http://www.sharepointcommunity.com/crm/default.aspx

Then we customized our website by deleting two columns, namely “Budget vs. Actual” and “Cost  Budget Days vs. Actual Days” from the dashboard using SharePoint Designer.
Then we saved the site as a site template (including content). But when we create a site using this custom site template, the “Overall Project Status” section of the dashboard is not displaying any data even though the customized site (the site template was created from) is showing data in that section of the dashboard. (Note: To understand the dashboard of the application template, you can click on the Dashboard link in the Quick Link Launch bar on the left of the site with the above URL. But that is not our site that we are talking about).

Does anyone know what could be the issue?


Issue using Managed Metadata with custom fields in the User Profiles application


Hi there,

I've created several custom properties in my User Profile Application.

I've also created several Term Sets in the Managed Metadata service application Term Store for use with these custom properties. Some of the Term Sets contain terms and have a closed submission policy whilst others have an open submission policy.

If the user hasn't already populated any of these custom fields in their profile, when they click on the Edit My Profile link from their My Site Profile page everything seems okay (for the first time).

The user is then able to successfully select values for these custom fields - the metadata is available. They can click on the "tag" icon to select values, or start typing and the suggestions appear. They are also able to enter new values into custom property fields where the term set is open to submission.

If they then Save and Close then go back into Edit My Profile, often not all of the existing data is populated in the metadata custom fields. On different occasions different fields may be blank. Sometimes this is accompanied by the error "Message from webpage / The server method 'ValidateTerms' failed", but not always.

Has anyone else tried this or have any suggestions are to what the issue might be?

Thanks in advance.

Application deployment - database connection issue


Hi, I finished an intranet application using webconfig to store my connection string to an Access database which has linked tables to SQL Server 2005.

Everything works perfectly, but when I publish the application on a IIS server service, it seems like all connections fail... :(


I looked up on internet but found nothing on this. I think my webconfig file is correct :


    <add key="dbconnect" value="Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=//192.168.xxx.x/Websites/xxx/xxx.accdb;Persist Security Info=True"/>


Any idea why it happens?


thanks alot !

Web Application Load time issue


Dear All,

I have a web application that is using a single page. This page has 2 multiviews and each one of them has around 10 views. Each of the views contain a grid and a form. My main problem is that when Switching views my application takes too much time (Around 5 seconds). I am using the three tier model though, that is; I have a Busingess Logic Layer and a Data Access Layer and I am using Object Data sources.

I am so confused about the main reason for the huge load time my website requires. In addition, I am not using any images within my views which might need high load time.

Please help me out in this

ASP.NET Application Frequent Log Off issue - Event ID 1077 registered



We have one ASP.NET application which was built with Oracle as backend. This is one of the real time online booking system which was working fine for the past 1 and half years. Recently we are encountering frequent logoff issues where the end users are logged out automatically from the application in 5 to 10 mins interval. The session time out in the application and in IIS is 60 mins.

In server event viewer we have seen lot of W3SVC events with ID 1077 (recycling the application pool). W3SVC had other event 1013 that shutdown the application pool.  The machin.config has been changed as per the recommendation given by the following URL.


But still we have the issue.

Can any one faced this issue before? Please advise.
