document/file partitioning in a web farm

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 11, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework
 
I have a .Net application running on a web farm that allows users to upload files and download them later via link to that file.  Currently, I use Windows DFS to replicate the local IIS directory where the files are stored across the web farm servers (/data).  However, as this solution does not scale out, I want to implement a more scalable solution by partitioning the documents.  Specifically, say I set up multiple file storage servers (Fs1, Fs2, Fs3, etc.) on the network.  Further, let's say I change my upload page to save the uploaded file to one of the file storage servers on the local LAN (based on some logic).  I assume so far I am safe with ASP.NET doing this much assuming I have the correct permission for the ASP.NET process ID.  The question I have is with regards to download links.  When a user gets served a download link to their document (e.g. http://www.testco.com/data/doc1.txt) is there a way for me to "intercept" that HTTP request and underneath the covers serve the doc1.txt from the file storage server (e.g. Fs2) it resides on?  Any sample code would be appreciated.  Thanks.

Upload a File to a SharePoint Document Library - Part I

  
The following helper class demonstrates a few techniques that allow documents to be uploaded to a SharePoint document library programmatically without using the API or a custom web service. You don't need to specify a document library name, and it will create any folders specified in the URL as required. File meta data will be updated if any properties are passed.

The file reached the maximum download limit. Check that the full text of the document can be meaning

  

Hi,

I'm facing an issue with the indexing.

I have 1 WFE+Index server+DB server.

Index server is not installed with MS FIlter pack 1.0

When crawling, the there will be document with warning in crawl log:
The file reached the maximum download limit. Check that the full text of the document can be meaningfully crawled.

Documents that with warning are such as doc, ppt, xls, docs, ppts and many others.
However, I view into the successful crawled document, there are doucments with ext doc and ppt.

For large file index, there are MaxGrowthFactor + MaxDownLoadSize required to be added into the index server.


As my understanding is, MS Filter Pack should installed into index server(already did, correct me if i'm wrong).

I looked into the Office SharePoint Seach(CA>Services in farm), if the server is appointed to "Use this server as indexing server", then MS Filter Pack is suppose to be installed into that particular server as well.

At the bottom, there also has another option is "Use all web front end for crawling".

The question here is, IF the option "Use all web front end for crawling" is selected.
Does the WED FRONT END Server required to installed the Ms Filte

how to automatically save new file into document library with a unique name or ID?

  
I've created a form using MS Word Document (2007) and lock it (protect it) so that users will be able to fill in the required fields.
then i've created a Content Type and uploaded the MS word form to be used as a template.

Then I've created a document library and enabled the content type and associate the above form for the library, so that when users click on New button the form will open.

everythings goes fine till here.

The problem is when users clicks on New and save the file back to the library, It doesn't save it with a unique name, instead it is over writting the existing one.
in other words, if employee 1 fill up the form and save it and later on employee 2 accessed the library and fill up a new form, he will overwrite what employee 1 has already saved!!

Is there a way to give every new created file a unique name? maybe (username+time)??


The URL 'ao/AO Document/Admin Guideline/xxxxx.jpg' error on 2nd SharePoint server in farm

  
We just added a 2nd SP2007 server to mirror our site.  The original site is in China, the new site in the US.  They are connected via a permanent  site to site VPN.  We are hitting the errors when attempting to upload files to the US mirror.    Environment: US server site: OS: Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise (64 bit) APP: Windows Sharepoint Server 2007 Enterprise SP2 (64 bit) DB: Windows SQL Server 2008 Enterprise R2 (64 bit) China site: OS: Windows Server 2003 Enterprise SP2 (32 bit) APP: Windows Sharepoint Server 2007 Enterprise SP2 (32 bit) DB: Windows SQL Server 2008 Enterprise R2 (32 bit) Background: We setup two test Sharepoint farm to be syncronized with only its content database. The upload works good on SZ site. But we got the following 2 error messages randomly when uploading file to document library of SF side. Error message: 1. The URL 'ao/AO Document/Admin Guideline/xxxxx.jpg' is invalid.  It may refer to a nonexistent file or folder, or refer to a valid file or folder that is not in the current Web. 2. Cannot open file "ao/AO Document/Admin Guideline/xxxxx.jpg". -- We've tried the official hotfix, altering the schema, changing the IIS memory limit settings, and restarting the application pool. Could the issue be related to the different OSes 2008 vs 2003, or 32 vs 64bit?

I have a document library with several office documents in it.  Currently, users select a document and the click the "Tags and Notes" button on the ribbon, then click the "Note Board" tab on the resulting pop-up in order to read or post notes.   What I have been asked for, is a connected web part that would display the notes associated with the currently selected document. The "Note Board" web part does not appear to accept connections.  Am I missing something?  Any ideas? TIA

WSS2.0 opening pdf documents an error message appears: The document could not be saved. The file may

  
Hi All,. In a WSS2.0 document library, a user is trying to open pdf files. However, an error message is displayed: 'The document could not be saved. The file may be read only, or another user may have it open. Please save the document with a different name or in a different folder'. No one else has the file open. When the user saves the file using Save As (as it is apparently Read Only) and then saves the file back to the SharePoint site, all previous versions of the file disappear. The user has noted that this has been happening since today, and she had some other network issues that have been resolved. No other users are experiencing this problem.  Not sure if this problem is related to the network problems the user was facing. I've had the user reboot but this has not resolved it. Any ideas?

Uploading a file to a document library produces access denied error, but only on first try.

  
Hi I have a task which uses a custom form which is part of a custom workflow.  The form incorporates an asp fileUpload control to allow a user to browse for a local file which they can then select and it will be upload a file to a folder in a document library.  The first time this action is performed the folder in the document library will not exist so the code creates a folder and then uploads the file to it. The problem I have is, the first time users try and upload a file the directory is created in the document library as expected, but then the user gets redirected to the standard SharePoint Access Denied page.  If the user goes back to the task list, then loads the task web page again, selects the same file and hits upload, then the file is uploaded fine. All subsequent file uploads work fine after that for all users. Users have Contribute permissions on the document library. The code to do the upload is as follows.  The task has a "CR Number" associated with it, which the directory in the doc library should be called.  It uploads the file to a stream.  Then gets the url of the web and works out the file url and uploads it.  The creation and checking of the folder in the doc library happens in the getDirUrl method. /// <summary> /// Processes an uploaded file. /// </summary> /// <param name="

Where is the document library setting "Unique file names"?

  
Live can be so simple if only… ;-).   When using DMS functionality unique file names must be possible. The name is an unimportant attribute when using Meta data. So why can I not choose somewhere in the document library settings something like:   ·         Generate unique filenames Or ·         Do not allow overwrite existing filenames   Maybe in the first service pack?   MS? Please, please, please
