Missing mysites after content DB migration

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 19, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 
Hi We are migrating our MOSS environment to new hardware (same domain). We have successfully migrated the SSP and the main site - they appear to be working fine. When I try to attach the mysites content DB (restored in SQL) the mysites are missing. Under application management -> content databases the 'current number of sites' is 0. SSP mysites settings look ok (we are using a different URL for the mysites). Can anyone shed any light? Cheers Mike

Content Query Web Part missing in SharePoint 2010

  
If you don't see content query web part listed in the web parts list, this is because you have not enabled "Search Server Web Parts" feature in site collection features. Enable this feature and content query web part will show in the list of web parts.

Content migration from MOSS Enterprise edition to MOSS Standard edition

  
Hi,     I have developed a web application using MOSS 2007 enterprise edition. I have customized the site using custom ASPX pages, custom Webpart and custom features. Also I referred http://blog.brianfarnhill.com/2009/03/19/changing-list-forms-through-code/ for updating the contents of list forms. I have configured SQL-Form based Authentication for this site. Now I have a need to migrate this site to an environment which has MOSS 2007 standard edition and use a Active Directory Authentication instead of SQL-Form based Authentication. So can anyone guide me wether this scenario is possible or it will create any compatibility issue?      Which are the precautions I need to consider for performing this task? I would appreciate any help on this. Thanks, Patav

Sharepoint 2010 Missing Content Types

  
Has anyone run into an issue where your system's base content types dissappear after deploying a new site definition.  We are doing a proof of concept using several CMS solutions and decided to see how sharepoint would fare in the process.  I worked on the POC for 6 weeks without any issues.  After selecting sharepoint as the solution I started refactoring my code into a more logical structure as many of the components were developed from sample code.  I created a couple of custom site definitions that were pretty simple.  Basically I copied the onenet.xml from the publishing site template that sharepoint uses and made a few simple modifications like associating my custom master page and a custom content type with the default page.  When I initially developed these I had no issues at all but yesterday I suddenly was not able to create sites using these site defs.  I figured there was some kind of conflict with my old templates so I deleted all site collections on the server and then tried to create a new site collection and then I couldn't even create a base publishing site.  I got an error indicating the base content type did not exist.  After spending hours going through logs it was clear that sharepoint was not able to build the content type hiearchy when creating new sites so I took a look at the UI and there were only abo

My content missing

  
We've recently implemented sharepoint 2010 in our company network. This have been going well for several months. However yesterday every user has lost his/her content on the 'my site' portion of Sharepoint. The other profile information is still intact (user picture, profile information). Only the my content portion has disappeared. I have no real idea how or why this has happened. After this event I decided to remove the my site application and recreated it in it's own application on a different port. The profiles have been synced with the DC succesfully. However I am afraid that this will take place again in the future. Has anyone ever encountered similar issues with sharepoint 2010? The main sharepoint application luckilly did not lose any information.

Flash Content missing in firefox redirected

  
Hi,    Do not know if anyone has encountered this problem? Not familiar with Flash. Here's the situation. We have a public client site with Flash content (uses url rewriting) say "\malls"  but at server side it is something like Default.aspx?page_id=456. Now since this site comprises of several sub sites like malls, which has existing public url like www.mymalls.com which is redirected to www.mysite.com\malls no problem with other contents (all displayed ok except for the flash content). but when you click another within www.mymalls.com say going to www.mysite.com\mall2 the flash content is displayed ok (not missing). Can anyone show me where to look or how to fix this? Thanks.

Content Query Webpart Missing Content Type and Approval Status

  

I'm a great fan o the CQWP , and love the changes made in 2010 on this webpart. What bothers me is that I use to Filter Documents by Approval Status, thus showing Draft or Pending Documents and Group these by their Content Type.

Both these were available in 2007, but removed from 2010 CQWP. Any idea why, or how to bring this back? sample or URL guidance would be great. My gut feeling is custom XSLT but id like to confirm this first.

Thx a lot

 

 


SP2010 Upgrade Error: Missing Reusable Content Types

  

During the in-place upgrade from MOSS2007 to SharePoint 2010, I experienced the following issue for numerous site collections.  Even though these were errors, the configuration wizard completed with Errors stating that there were some sites not fully upgraded.

I cannot determine how to resolve this error and complete the content database upgrade.   Thanks in advance.

 

In the Upgrade-YYYYMMDD-######-##-error.log file, the following details were logged for about 15 different site collections:

Missing Content Types from Central Administration site. How do I fix?

  

SharePoint 2010 Enterprise (Configuration database version: 14.0.4762.1000 ) 

When trying to create a new site (Document Center)  collection via Centeral Administration, I get the following error:

Custom Content Types Missing after 2007 Upgrade to 2010

  

Hello everyone - 

We have a portal solution leveraging custom publishing content types and page layouts in 2007. The database was backed up, and the upgrade was done via dbattach on a 2010 environment. The site works seemingly fine - though there is some strange behavior we noticed where a few content types are missing.

The Content Type Gallery lists only say 10 of the 15 content types we should have. Loading the Master Page and Page Layout Gallery we see the inheriting content type, though clicking on it yields in an error as though it cannot find the content type. These are all custom content types, though they are not very different from each other.

Has anyone experienced this problem and devised a solution? - I tried to iterate through the site collection via a console application to see if I could somehow update or intercept the issue with the missing content types to no avail. I'll be open to suggestions / tools recommended...

All the best,

Alex

Missing "Include Content" checkbox when creating Project Workspace template.

  
I'm trying to use an existing project workspace to create a custom template. This workspace includes standard content that I'd like to include in the template for use in future project workspaces. However, when I go to "Save site as template" I don't get the option to "Include Content" like I see when creating a template for a site or sub-site. Any clue why I can't include content for a project workspace template? MOSS 2007.

SharePoint 2010 External Content Type and InfoPath 2010 - Numeric data type fields missing in InfoPa

  

Connected SQL data table to SP 2010 ECT from SQL table.  The SQL table has several fields that have a type of "numeric(3,0)".  The SP 2010 list shows all fields form SQL.  When we open up InfoPath Designer and reference the SP List data (from SQL) all of our numer fields are missing from the available fields list.

I amd going to try another data type but that hardly feels like a solution.  If anyone has any ideas please let me know!


Error adding image to Rich Content Area - Missing ContentPlaceHolders

  

Hello forum

I've recently installed a standalone SharePoint Foundation, and it seems to be working well. But today I tried to edit a Rich Text field /SitePages/StartPage.aspx file, and it threw an exception complaining about a missing ContentPlaceHolder. So I've tried comparing the "faulty" master page to a working one, and they're identical. I've searched the master page code for the ContentPlaceHolder - it's nowhere to be found.

What I've found is, that the page that fails resides in the /_layouts directory and a master page with the same name exists there as well.

Does anyone know what I can do to make this error go away?

 

PS.: I haven't modified the v4.master or any other master page for that matter.

This is the stack trace:

Server Error in '/' Application.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cannot find ContentPlaceHolder 'PlaceHolderRteDialogBody' in the master page '/_catalogs/masterpage/v4.master', verify content control's ContentPlaceHolderID attribute in the content page. 
Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

Hi All,

We have taken the backup of content database and restored it in the new server, after that attached the content database on sharepoint central admin, but few sites are missing after this. when checked the database server Number of records are matching in both the servers content database and also the data is matching, but still we are missing few sites. Do we need to do any specific change in sharepoint or database?


Option to Group By: Content Type is missing from view settings.

  

In testing for migrating/upgrading our WSS 3.0 environment to SharePoint 2010, I have noticed that there is no longer an option to group list items by the Content Type column in view settings.  Is this by design, or a known issue that still needs to be fixed?  This is using the recent SharePoint 2010 Enterprise RTM.
