SBS 2003 R2 SharePoint 3.0 (side-by-side install w/2.0) not accessible after latest .NET updates

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 16, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

After the last MS SBS 2003 update, many of which were related to .NET 2, 3.5 & 4, my side-by-side for SharePoint 3.0 became inaccessible.  Initially I had the non-specific "An unexpected error has occured" so I turned on the more verbose explaination and received the ASP.NET 2.0.50727.0 below.  I have tried:

1. Restarting IIS
2. Restarting Application Pool
3. Reinstating permissions on Application Pool & SharePoint -22836 Website to ensure correct account was being used
4. Alter authentication type in SharePoint 3.0 Central Administration (and then put it back to original state)
5. Uninstalling .NET updated KB2418241, KB2416473 & KB2416472
6. Using SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard after attempted control panel repair of SharePoint 3.0 (this actually failed, which may not be such a bad thing because it would have likely tried an upgrade)
7. Verifying I could access SQL 2005 using SQL Server Mgt Studio via np:\\.\pipe\MSSQL$Microsoft##SSEE\sql\query (I could) and that the users/security appeared correct for WSS_Content_642767e6691d43fd8a350543af751504

I've tried various permutations of the above and then placed every back into original place.  I am literally at my wits end, I have no idea how to fix this.  Any help would be greatly

Sharepoint integrated mode, any side effect ?

Hi, We planned to switch from native mode to sharepoint integrated mode our SQL Server Reporting Server. But it is a production server, so we liked to know if any side effect can happened on existing report and if it is possible to switch an existing database into sharepoint integrated mode ?

How to Perform Query Side Expansion of Synonyms in FAST Search for SharePoint

Hi, I have added Two Way Synonyms in FAST Search Keywords option in Site Settings. If I type the synonym alone, it works but if I type it with some other keyword, the search results in no hits whereas with the Same Keyword if i give the Main Keyword instead of its synonym, the search is successful. I understand that for this we need to do Query Side Expansion of Synonyms. I also tried to Set a Resubmit Flag to AddSynonymsAutomatically but this also failed. Can u pls suggest a way for this?

Client side validation using Client OM in sharepoint 2010

Hi, Can we use Client Object Model for Client side validation? Suppose, i have a SharePoint 2010 List. While adding a new item in that list, i want to check for Title is already available or not, person has posted any item earlier or not..that kind of stuff. Could i check this at client side rather than ItemAdding Event, so that i can reduce the network traffic? Thanks in advanced. Hardik Shah Solution Developer.

Server Side Validation for SharePoint 2007 Form Fields


Hi Guys,

Need to validate NewForm.aspx and EditForm.aspx of SharePoint custom list. My current implementation is by using JavaScript. It's working fine.

Someone suggested JavaScript is not a good approach.I am unable to fetch ids dynamically by JavaScript only for few fields (people picker, calendar control) and in that case i have hard coded the ids. hardcoding is always a bad approache.

Is there any way to validate those mentioned form at server side? Is it really good way to think that my validation can put inside Event Handler?

SharePoint Workflow : Failed to Start when a document is added to library from server-side object mo


When I add a document using my server-side object model code, I get an exception "The type or namespace name 'Office' does not exist in the namespace 'Microsoft'" in the server logs and in the library I can see the Workflow status as "Failed to Start".





Interestingly, when I add a document to the same library from sharepoint site portal, it works just fine, the workflow kicks off with the state : in-progress.

Also, I modified the task form for the Approval workflow template from SharePoint Designer using infopath.(Not sure if that be a problem as adding from portal works fine.)

What am I missing out here??

 Details of the exception:

How can I split one Sharepoint 2010 List into two Sharepoint 2010 Lists which are displayed side-by-


I have a list (table) with 50 items which is in a webpart zone of a Sharepoint 2010 page. Unfortunately, users have to scroll down the page to see the last items in the list. Therefore I would like to break the list in two and display both lists (each with 25 items) side by side in the same webpart zone. How can I do this? 

The only thing I can think of is to add a new webpart zone next to the other one, put a copy of my 50 items list in it, and apply filters to the lists so that the left one displays items 1-25 and the right one displays items 26-50. Unfortunately, I will have to change my filters once in a while.

Cannot open Sharepoint Designer 2010. Side by side configuration is incorrect.


This happens only on my desktop and laptop. When I try to open any site using "edit with sharepoint designer", I get the following message.

"c:\program files\Microsoft office\office 14\spdesign.exe

The application has failed to start becuase its side by side configuration is incorrect."

The site I am trying to open is a SPS 2010 site. Even if I try to open the application without trying to open the site, I get the same message. I have reinstalled Office 2010 and SPD 2010 but with no luck. Any advise.

SharePoint 2010 - missing server side dependencies and missing web parts


I did a clean SP 2010 install recently on a new server farm.  I got a health analyzer warning about missing server side dependencies - a lot of them - and missing web parts ... then I installed the August cumulative upgrade and got a clean configuration but an erro log with, again, a list of theoretically missing web parts.  I don't see any issue with features or functions but-- even after reading the posts- am unable to figure out (1) whether this is important or (2) how to fix it -- please note that my test server shows none of these issues - the only difference between test and prod is that test is completely vanilla and production uses a named instance of SQL Server ... Thanks so much for any advise ... Pete

How to close the sharepoint modal dialog and refresh the parent page using Server side API?

I am trying to find a way to close a modal page that has been opened with the click event of ribbon control. Once the modal dialog is opened, I'm showing 'OK' button for the user to confirm some action on the respective list item. If the user clicks on 'OK', I'm performing some action on the listitem using server side code. Here the problem for me is, once the action is completed on this listItem, I need to close the dialog and refresh the parent page (AllItem.aspx) using *sharepoint server side

I'm aware that for closing the dialog we have JS code "SP.UI.ModalDialog.commonModalDialogClose". But this is not useful for me, because I should first run some action on the listitem and once that action is complete, then only I should close this dialog.

call JavaScript - jQuery code from ASP.NET Server-Side

jQuery got so close to me lately that I can see myself adding the scripts to my project almost unconsciously. The thing is, jQuery is very useful for me, in almost all situations and it has been a do or die enhancement for all my project since I first put my hands on it.

Of course while using it, you encounter few situations which need a bit of research to solve, mostly when you are trying to combine it with some other technologies like: UpdatePanels and ASP.NET Ajax. For instance there are many situations when I would like to run some jQuery magic based on some decision that I make on the server side.
