Downloading a document from a sharepoint site to local file system, copy web service returns null

Hi Guys,
               I am trying to get this done for the last 2 days and I am still banging my head to the wall.
All I need to do is to download files from my sharepoint site library that uses integrated windows authentication. I was using copy webservice : getItem method to accomplish this.

CopyService.GetItem(copySource, out myFieldInfoArray, out myByteArray);

Problem : myByteArray is always returned as NULL

Note: I have tried the same with another site that uses forms authentication but the result was the same (NULL !!)

This is my code:


Copy copy = new CopyService.Copy();

SharePoint 2010 Service Application Proxy & My Site Settings


I have a SharePoint 2010 Site Configured with Claims based FBA. I have also made My Site work with FBA.

My question is:

In 2007 I would create a seperate SSP for FBA based my site and Set all configuration there. As SharePoint 2010 supports Service Application Proxy how can I isolate FBA based My site and Other AD sites.

While I was able to select the required services for my Site using Configure service application associations link in Central admin, all changes I make in My Site Settings reflect for both FBA & AD based application.

How do I isolate My Site changes ?? I wanted to have different configuration for each of the My Sites

When accessing SharePoint or Central Administration 3.0 a "503 Service Unavailable" error is returne

I am running a MOSS 2007 server in a test environment. I have been off building other aspects of the environment, but I come back today and notice that SharePoint is no longer working. Whenver I try to access it or the Central Administration area I recieve a "503: Service Unavailable" error.

I have also notice that after an IISRESET that the applications pools that are associated with the SharePoint sites (Extranet, Intranet, Sharepoint - 21075, and Central Administration fail to start on their own. I can start the manually. They are all running under the DOMAIN\Administrator account (as are ALL of the SharePoint related features. I know, I know, but that is what the requestor of this test environment requested).

Additionally the following error codes are logged (NOTE: These are translated from German):

Event ID: 6641
Source: Office Sharepoint Server
The SSP timer Mandate for import distribution lists did not execute.

Reason: Registration failed: The user does not have the required logon on this computer.

cannot access sharepoint site through Internet Explorer 8 on a machine running Win XP Service Pack 3


The Sharepoint portal can be accessed fine through Firefox. Opera allows me to access it, but I cannot sign out, check out a shared document or do anything which opens a small window on clicking an option.

I can stay with Firefox, but when I try to edit a shared Word document in Word I get the message "Edit document requires a Windows Sharepoint Services compatible application and Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 or greater" We need to edit a shared document/calendar which is uploaded. All I know is we are using Sharepoint 2007 and the version of our site is Does that mean we have Windows Sharepoint Services SP2 on our Sharepoint server?

When I try Internet Explorer, I cannot log on at all. I get a window which asks for my credentials which I enter, it fails to authenticate me, then shows me the You are not authorized to view this page message. I tried with different computers, but cannot get in using Internet explorer.

What could be the issue?

Our Sharepoint admin does not have time to look into such matters so I am on my own.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

how to delete custom site templates(solutions) still shows afert remove the solution in SharePoint 2


I created several version of site templates with different name.  Next I removed the older versions in solution gallery but in the list of template sites still  are showed.

I searched for cmdlet in PowerShell witho no luck.  The custom templates does not shown in SP-WebTemplate command.  So I don´t know how to remove this templates from SharePoint, if the gallery solution is empty.  I remove the solutions from recycle bin in the site and site colleciton scope but with the same results.  And I first deactivate the solution and next remove the solution but nothing works to remove the template from site template.

The odd thing is that in my SharePoint 2010 development Virtual Machine removing the solutions remove the site templates of the creation site option. But in  the Production Server recently migrate to 2010 it does not work.

Any solution in code, cmdlet or some else could help.

Thanks in advance!

Changing the graphics on the home page of a SharePoint site

When you create a site in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services by using the default Team Site template, the home page includes two default graphics. A Windows SharePoint Services graphic appears in the body of the page, and a picture of a house in a circle appears near the site title. You can change these graphics to customize your site. Changing the smaller graphic requires a Windows SharePoint Services compatible Web page editor

Take a tour of your SharePoint site

What is a SharePoint site for?
A SharePoint site is a Web site that provides a central storage and collaboration space for documents, information, and ideas. A SharePoint site is a tool for collaboration, just like a telephone is a tool for communication, or a meeting is a tool for decision making. A SharePoint site helps groups of people (whether work teams or social groups) share information and work together. For example, a SharePoint site can help you:

Coordinate projects, calendars, and schedules.
Discuss ideas and review documents or proposals.
Share information and keep in touch with other people.

Six easy ways to customize your site using Web Parts in SharePoint

Becoming familiar with Web Part customization techniques gives you a range of page-customization choices. For example, you can customize your site's home page so that it displays the specific information that your team needs. You can rearrange the list items on the home page, add lists, and even change the images on the home page. As you become more familiar with Web Part Page customization techniques, you can build interactive Web Part Pages that makes the data in lists more dynamic and useful, and you can add new Web Parts that provide access to external data and Web services.

SharePoint Application and Site Pages - Part 1 of 2

In this first part of the two part series, Steven covers the differences between Site and Application pages in SharePoint 2007, why each may be used in various circumstances, and prepares for the construction of a menu located application page. After a brief introduction he examines the concept of Site Pages and Application Pages separately in detail with supported screenshots.

SharePoint Application and Site Pages - Part 2 of 2

As the second article in a two part series, Steven examines the attributes and details of a SharePoint 2007 application page, including the construction and feature deployment of the same page based project. Since this is a WSS level objective, as opposed to MOSS, you will not need MOSS to work with the code included in this project. Windows Server 2003, WSS, and Visual Studio 2005 are all that is needed, with no additional add-ons. He provides a detailed analysis of each step involved in the creation and deployment of the project.
