MOSS 2007 - Propagate changes to multiple sites and lists

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 18, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
We use MOSS 2007 for doc mngmt and maintain individual sites containing lists and libraries for each of our 90+ projects.  All sites are created from a site template and we wish to keep them all identical.  How should I push out changes and updates as business requirements change?  In other words, if we change/update the template, how can I make all the sites and lists look the same?

Seperate out the Document Libraries to individual Sites in MOSS 2007

We are using the MOSS 2007 with SP2. We are having three different Document Libraries for three different projects under same site. We have the requirement to migrate each library to shift to the individual sites. We need to do this with all the content, settings and and the permissions. It's fine to migrate the database and settings individually i.e. content database seperately and site settings seperately. Is anyone have this kind of migration?

MOSS 2007: list column that lookup to multiple documents stored in doc library

Example: - List item 1 --------> Lookup to Doc 2                   --------> Lookup to Doc 5 - List item 2 --------> Lookup to Doc 3                   --------> Lookup to Doc 5                   --------> Lookup to Doc 8 - List item 3 --------> Lookup to Doc 1 How can I achieve this? is it possible that in the lookup I have a "search" option? Thanks all Vit

MOSS 2007 Alerts - Multiple Emails Issue

I've been experiencing a strange issue with SharePoint alerts that seem to happen randomly.  I've setup a daily alert on a custom list that sends a summary of all changes at 5pm, but on some days I'll receive more than 1 summary email (150+ this past Tuesday).  Each email contains different information and the total number of emails is random along with the number of records in each email.  Some days the summary comes in one email and others it comes in multiple.  This is happening on our production server and I haven't been able to recreate the issue in development.  Does anyone have any thoughts as to how a daily alert would get split up into several emails?We have 1 MOSS 2007 app server, 1 index server and 1 SQL 2005 database server.

Combining lists from multiple sites into SPGridview


I have one main SharePoint site which has 5 child sites. Each child site represents a different department. On each of these sites there is a list called "ActionPlans". These lists all have the same name and the same number of columns. I need to somehow combine the 5 "ActionPlans" from the child sites into one on the main page.

I was able to loop through the SharePoint object and pull out one list, populate a datatable and display it in the SPGridview. I am having problems looping through the other sites and combining all lists.

Please help, Ninel

Is a multiple administrative and service accounts a MUST for MOSS 2007/2010?


Want to set up a MOSS 2007 server farm and was reading up on how to do it. One Msft article insist that I need multiple accounts. My sys admin tells me that I can use one account for everything. This account is a domain account and is a member of the domain admin group, it has dbcreator, public, secadmin, serveradmin, sysadmin roles on the db server.

Any thought on the topic?



MOSS 2007 Search - All Sites vs. This Site


Environment - MOSS 2007 Enterprise SP 2

I noticed that the search bar in SharePoint defaults to "All Sites".  I have a dropdown arrow where I can change it to "This Site" which is relative to whatever site I am on.  How can I configure the search to default to "This Site" instead of "All Sites"?

Wiki lists in MOSS 2007 HTML Validator bug


HI all,

I'm facing a nasty problem with Wiki lists in MOSS 2007. I managed to create a custom functionality for the Wiki list which allows our users to insert business images into the Wiki page. So actually I programmed the functionality to insert inline images (base64 encoded) into the SharePoint HTML editor. So far so good but on server side when the list item is saved, it seems there is some kind of HTML validator or something which removes the entire "src" attribute probably because it's value is not an URL but something like ""data:image/Png;base64, here goes base64 string of the image". Also some custom attributes for HTML elements are removed during this interesting validation/filtering...So if I have some custom attribute for an "img" html element, the attribute is removed on server side when the item is saved.

This strange behavioral is only for wiki lists but if I have a custom list with the MultiLineText field (with rich text mode enabled) my base64 src for images are not removed.

Does anyone have any idea how can I disable that server validator/filter? I even checked with reflector but couldn't find any helpful information.

In my opinion this is a SharePoint bug since base64 inline images are supported by IE8...


How to combine multiple task lists on multiple sites into single task list which then connects to Ou



I'm hoping someone can provide some insight into a problem I'm having.


I have been tasked with trying to find a way to create multiple sites within the same site collection with a standard Task list in each site.  Now, I'd like to combine each of those task lists into one single task list viewable by the managers.  I know I can create a dataview, however I haven't been able to get that view into Outlook using the "Connect to Outlook" option in the Actions Menu of a task list.


Is there a way this can be done?

Any help is appreciated.

Creating Sites/Lists/List Items under Current User Context in SharePoint By Using SPUserToken

Usually we do this by performing the action under RunWithElevatedPrivileges method and updating the listitem using SPListItem.SystemUpdate() method (see here). but this approach has its own flaws like (RunWithElevatedPrivileges will run under system account, we cannot use SystemUpdate for SPSite,SPWeb,SPList, since it runs under system we will "CreatedBy" by as SystemAccount).
