Can't start crawl becasue of index move operation

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 26, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Hi there,

I can't start crawl task. The log says that "Deleted by the gatherer (The start address or content source that contained this item was deleted and hence this item was deleted.)" But I did not change the path of content sources and When I trie to start crawling job it says "Crawling might be paused because a backup or an index move operation is in progress. Are you sure you want to resume this crawl?"

What is index move operation? What should I do? I'll really appreciate the solution greatly. Thanks in advance.

Move cursor position during drag drop operation



I know how to change to a custom cusor or visual instead of a standard cursor during drag and drop operations.  I know how to get the current mouse position during drag and drop methods (often there is a GetPosition method, or alternatively I can use p/invoke or System.Windows.Forms.Cursor.MousePosition getter).

My question is, how can I (or is it not possible) to change the mouse position programmatically during the drag/drop operation, ideally just before the drop occurs so that items are dropped at the point of the programmatically set cursor position? 

I tried to to use the System.Windows.Forms.Position setter and SetCursorPos both in the source's PreviewQueryContinueDrag handler and the target's PreviewDrop handler but neither affected the position of where the items were dropped.  In the case of PreviewQueryContinueDrag, the mouse visually moved to the programmatic location after the items were dropped, even though the PreviewQueryContinueDrag handler was called before the item was dropped (and before PreviewDrop).

Any ideas?



Move cursor position during drag drop operation



I'm enhancing the behaviour of out of the box WF designer drag/drop experience.  One of the things I'm trying to do (in part) is when a toolbox item is drag over an existing activity designer and then dropped, I want the toolbox item's activity to be dropped close to the activity designer on which it was to be dropped, but not directly on top of the designer.

To accomplish this, I detect when a drop operation is about to occur and then I attempt to move the cursor position next to the activity designer.  The problem I'm having is moving the cursor during the drop operation.  I've tried various ways to do this programmatically, but nothing seems to work.  Or, perhaps it is getting moved but then the workflow designer (and in particular the flowchart designer) does something special with mouse position or otherwise ignores it. 

I started out posting this question on the WPF forum, but now I'm beginning to wonder if perhaps there is something unique to  the WF/flowchart designer that's causing the mouse not to move (or to move back to the original position perhaps) rather than a general issue with moving the mouse during drag/drop operations.

Can anyone provide any guidance?



Can google crawl and index this .aspx page?



I have a question. I will take the example exactly as it looks like.

Below I have an .aspx page and a .cs page. In the .aspx page There is alot of text written.

The .cs file as seen will in the Page_Load event redirect to another .aspx page which holds the real design to show for a user.

(I only create these below .aspx page for google to find and index. These are content like Thread and posts but when someone enter this page, it will redirect to the real desinged page and now know what text to read in there.)

My question is if this .aspx page below can be crawled/red/index by search engines like google. (To mention is that I do use a sitemap).

What worries me with this question is that I immediately redirect to another .aspx page.

Does this prevent google from having the ability to read the below .aspx page and index the content? How does this work?

[MOSS 2007]Problem on crawl and index


Hi all,


I'm here because I need some help on MOSS 2007 search and I don't find anything to solve my problems.

I have some problems when I try to crawl my sites collections.

On the server (MOSS 2007, Windows Server 2008 64 bits, SQL Server 2008 32 bits), I create many Web App fot my sites collections.

Each Web App has her own content data base.

Errors when I try to move the Index files


I tried to change the location of the search index files in Central Admin.  The current setting is the default:  C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Servers\14.0\Data\Office Server\Applications

I want to just put it on E:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Servers\14.0\Data\Office Server\Applications - so all I changed was the drive letter.

It churned for awhile then listed this error:

Errors were encountered during the configuration of the Search Service Application.

How to connect two machines for directory/file operation like copy/move etc in C#


Hi All-

I wants to write c# code for a file transfer tool. My basic requirment is that, copying directories/files or moving directories/files from one machine to another machine.

For that I am populating source machine drives, directories and files into a first tree view control.

Now I wants to connect to onther machine which will be a destination machine and populate the drives, directories and files into second treeview control to copy/move the directories from source machine.

To connect, I will provide IPAddress, Port number, user name and password of destination machine.

To accomplish this,

which type of connections could be used?

How many connections type are there?

If the two machines are same LAN/Network how to connect together?

What is client/server connection mode?

What type of transfer protocal could be used?

Please give all the details about this.

Thanks in advance

SharePoint 2007 Workflows - Things to Consider Before You Start

SharePoint 2007 (MOSS) utilizes the Workflow Foundation (WF) to enable workflows on lists and content types. But before you start doing cartwheels there are few things you should know before you get started. The experiences I'll be discussing are not from book smarts but from building real MOSS solutions that are in production today.

A lengthy operation in an ASP.NET web service


I've built an ASP.NET web service with .NET 2.0 (an asmx file). I invoke a web service method using Ajax. The method takes a substantial amount of time to execute (5 minutes to 1 hour). I believe it's not a good idea to "hang" the web request for so long.
I'm wondering if the web service method could spawn an additional process which in turn would execute the lengthy operation and notify the web service once the operation is completed.
Are there any good practices regarding this kind of functionality?
