Upgrading Windows 2003 Server with .Net Framework 2.0 SP2

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework

We have multiple websites deployed onto Windows 2003 WebServer running under .NET Framework 2.0 SP1 version and now we want to upgrade it to .NET Framework 2.0 SP2, so just wanted to check that after upgrading the .NET Framework on the server do we also need to re-deploy the websites by recompiling them in .NET Framwork 2.0 SP2 version or it's not necessary as they will automatically start referencing the latest assemblies?

Your early response will be much appreciated...

Windows Server 2003: Discover Improved System Info, New Kernel, Debugging, Security, and UI APIs


There's a lot to say about Windows Server 2003. First of all, it's the first operating system with built-in .NET Framework support, and it's the first 64-bit OS from Microsoft. But wait, there's more! There are lots of new features and APIs in this version as well. For instance, Windows Server 2003 features Hot Add Memory and a number of other arcane new tidbits. There are new APIs for handling threads, directories, and files, and new features like the low fragmentation heap for managing memory and system information. There's vectored exception handling and new UI APIs as well.OS internals expert Matt Pietrek takes a look at the additions he finds most interesting and useful so you'll have a good place to start when you dive into Windows Server 2003.

Security Briefs: Exploring S4U Kerberos Extensions in Windows Server 2003


Building Web sites that provide services external to the corporate firewall is tricky. Usually it's not desirable to grant corporate domain accounts to external clients, and from a purely practical standpoint Kerberos does not work well over the Internet due to the typical configuration of client-side firewalls.

SQL-Server 2005 x64 / windows server 2003 x64 crashes during file copy

Hi We are running: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Standard - 9.00.4294.00 (X64) Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2 Enterprise x64 We have gigabit interface. Today we copied a file (using robocopy) from our databaseserver to another server (backup-server). The copy was started from the backup-server and source were specified using UNC. The copy were using about 20% of the bandwith (about 200Mbit). During the copy, sql-server reported several errors, for example: AppDomain 15 (mp.dbo[runtime].14) is marked for unload due to memory pressure. The client was unable to reuse a session with SPID 75, which had been reset for connection pooling. This error may have been caused by an earlier operation failing. Check the error logs for failed operations immediately before this error message. ***Stack Dump being sent to [PATH\SQLDump0005.txt Resource Monitor (0x1384) Worker 0x000000008000C1C0 appears to be non-yielding on Node 0. Memory freed: 0 KB. Approx CPU Used: kernel 15 ms, user 218 ms, Interval: 428541. So to me it appears that sql-server crashed during a file copy. We have 27 GB ram. With 24.5 GB dedicated to SQL-Server. The files we copied were quite large, some over 50GB. I found a similar issue about this: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/920739/ Do you think the issue above could be the cause of the sql-server crash? ///Patrik

Sharepoint 2003 + Windows Terminal Server 2008 + Office 2007 problem?

Hi, We have a customer where some users runs Windows Terminal Server 2008 with Office 2007. They open documents from a Sharepoint 2003 site. When they open an excel sheet they get a button in the document which says "Server workbook: Click edit workbook to edit this workbook" and there is a button: "edit workbook" The users clicks "edit workbook" but get an error message saying there is no connection to the server.  They are able to edit the document, but not save it back to the sharepoint site. Most other users work on their local computer with Office 2003. Here, everything works fine and there are no button/message stating its a server workbook.   Is this caused due to some compatability issues between Sharepoint 2003 and Office 2007?   Best regards, Thomas Hansen ErgoGroup AS

How to access RAM above 32gb on Windows 2003 Server Standard x64?

My employers went and maxed out their database server for RAM to 64gb from 32gb. It's running SQL Server 2005 x64 on Windows 2003 Server Standard x64. As far as i'm aware of, 32gb is the RAM limit for the OS but does sql server have the ability to see beyond this limit? I'm about to ship the RAM back... Any insights would be greatly appreciated!

Install MOSS 2007 and ProClartity 6.3 (PAS6.3) on the same Microsoft Windows 2003 Server

An install of MOSS 2007 and ProClartity 6.3 (PAS6.3) on the same Microsoft Windows 2003 Server seems to be problematic. MOSS 2007 creates a default website and stops the normal default website. As soon as PAS 6.3 is installed it installs to this stopped default website. How can I overcome this issue?

Copy files through batch program on Windows Server 2003

I have a VB6 program running on windows server 2003. When I try to open a file in a SharePoint Document library it will not traverse folders. If I run the application on Windows 7 (maybe Vista too), it can. I assume that there is some operating system helping hand here. In order to get around this problem, we have to output our files to a network share and then copy the files over to the document library manually. My question is, how can I write a batch program that will copy all of the files on a network share to the document library using the individual's credentials? I am unable to map a drive letter to a document library in Windows server 2003 (it works on 7). Any suggestions and tips would be much appreciated. Thanks.
