404 error after unsuccessful restore server error message about author.dll

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 25, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Hi All

I recently tried to restore a section of a site using stsadm. I got a versioning error when i tried to install it. Now i can't access any of the pages at the site level i tried to install //localhost/ anything at //localhost/sites/ works fine. I tried a DB backup/restore. It didn't help.

When i look at the pages in Designer they give me an error "Server Error: The Url "http://localhost/_vti_bin/_vti_aut/author.dll" is not contained within a Windows Sharepoint Service site. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I've been searching forums all day and nothing seems to be working.



P.S. The section of the site i tried to restore was from a different site. It also contained a third party SP application called "K2".

Error Message: The attempt to connect to the report server failed. Check your connection informatio

I have a web page that contains a ReportViewer control.  I am trying to display a report, which is an .rdl file located on the SSRS server, in this ReportViewer control.  I have set the ReportPath and ReportServerUrl correctly.  I am getting an error message. Am I suppose to use an .rdlc file rather than a .rdl file?  Does the web server configuration need to use a certain account?  I am getting the following error message: The attempt to connect to the report server failed. Check your connection information and that the report server is a compatible version. The request failed with HTTP status 404: Not Found.

Error when running an SQL script to restore a database on SQL Server 2008 R2 Express

Hi, At work, I use SQL Server 2008 Express running on Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3. At home, I also use SQL Server 2008 Express running on Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3. Whenever I do work on the database at work, I usually restore the database at home (or vice versa) I have been using the following SQL scripts to back up the database and to restore the same database (at work or at home). BackupRealEstate.sql USE Master BACKUP DATABASE [RealEstate] TO DISK = N'F:\My Documents\My Database\RealEstate.bak' WITH NOFORMAT, INIT, NAME = N'RealEstate-Full Database Backup', SKIP, NOREWIND, NOUNLOAD, STATS = 10 GO RestoreRealEstate.sql USE Master RESTORE DATABASE [RealEstate] FROM DISK = N'F:\My Documents\My Database\RealEstate.bak' WITH  FILE = 1, NOUNLOAD, REPLACE, STATS = 10 GO Everything worked fine until I replaced my 8yo home computer with a newer and faster one. My new home computer is running Windows 7 Home Premium and I use the latest SQL Server 2008 R2 Express. When I tried to run the above restore SQL script, I got the following error message: Msg 3101, Level 16, State 1, Line 2 Exclusive access could not be obtained because the database is in use. Msg 3013, Level 16, State 1, Line 2 RESTORE DATABASE is terminating abnormally. There was no other application/process using this database. Can someone please help me? Regards,

MS Message Queueing 4.0 HTTP Support - 500 Internal Server Error

Hi all,   I've been trying to set up MSMQ 4.0 with HTTP Support to allow one of our partners to send messages to us. However, whenever I make any call to the msmq page I get an internal server error 500 (See below). My platform is Windows 2008 SE (64-bit) running as a DC (though MSMQ is running in workgroup mode).   Any hints on what might be causing this or how I can investigate further? Are there any log files for the ISAPI extension, or the MQISE.dll, or the MSMQ service that might help me shed light on this problem?   I've seen blogs about an issue with MSMQ 3.0 where the machine name can't be 15 characters long, is this still the case with MSMQ 4.0?   The error details are as below,     Server Error in Application "WWW.MYDOMAIN.COM/MSMQ" Internet Information Services 7.0 HTTP Error 500.0 - Internal Server Error There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, so it cannot be displayed. Detailed Error Information  Module IsapiModule Notification ExecuteRequestHandler Handler AboMapperCustom-113521 Error Code 0x8007007e Requested URL http://www.mydomain.com:80/msmq Physical Path c:\inetpub\www.mydomain.com\msmq Logon Method Anonymous Logon User Anonymous The path to the ISAPI Filter is incorrect.

throw exception message giving internal server error on live site


using vb.net/asp.net 2005

when a user enters a bad email I am doing a check on this and throwing an exception message as follows, this works fine on the test site but for some reason the same code on the live site gives a "internal server error" (http code 500).  The code below:

            If isThisEmailValid(strEmailThatTheUserEntered) Then
		'do something


                Throw New Exception("You entered a bad email address.")

            End If

not certain why this is happening, I assume that it's some server or config difference between the test and live sites.  has anyone seen this before?  For a quick fix i'm registering javascript alert and showing the same text so it works but I would like to figure out why the code above is not working.

as always, thanks for your feedback

Error Message "Not enough server storage is available to process this command" thrown when using Dia


I've been trying to make a library that uses the System.Diagnostics.PerformanceCounters to monitor perfmon on a variety of machines in C#. While the system seems to run fine, I've noticed after three weeks or so of polling that I just started receiving the error:

"Not enough server storage is available to process this command" on Windows Server 2003 machines

which the stack trace identifies as being from:

at System.Diagnostics.PerformanceMonitor.GetData(String item)
   at System.Diagnostics.PerformanceCounterLib.GetPerformanceData(String item)
   at System.Diagnostics.PerformanceCounterLib.get_CategoryTable()
   at System.Diagnostics.PerformanceCounterLib.GetCategories()
   at System.Diagnostics.PerformanceCounterLib.GetCategories(String machineName)
   at System.Diagnostics.PerformanceCounterCategory.GetCategories(String machineName)


The same error occurs when I try hitting System.Diagnostics.Process.GetProcesses().


I can "fix" the issue by restarting the Remote Registry, but it's not really a long term solution since I won't be able to do this going forward on all of the machines.


I've noticed that on the machines that fail, around the time the failure occurs, I start to see warnings in the

Error message: Cannot connect to server (SQL Server 2008 R2)


I just installed SQL Server 2008 R2.  When I try to connect to the server i get the following error message:

A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server) (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 2)

The Server Name is filled in automatically and I've been told it's my computer's name.  It's correct so I don't understand why I can't connect.  Can anyone please give me some guidance?  I'm not technical in SQL Server so I need a step by step.  Thank you in advance!!

Windows Update error message 84B30001 - SQL Server 2008 SP2 update fails


I am running Windows 7 Professional on a 64 bit platform and have Windows update on and selected to notify me when updates are available.  The other day, I received an error message that an update failed to install properly.  The update that failed is to update SQL Server 2008 SP2 - KB 2285068.  I have made several attempts to retry this update with the same result.  When I Googled the error message, all of the responses deal with the SQL Server 2008 SP1 update not SP2.  Couldn't find a solution to this problem - nor could I find one in the KB article - which basically explains details of SP2 and DOES give me the option to instal SP2 from here.  Don't want to take the chance and download it from here - maybe I should though.  Can usually find a solution to a Windows update error in Google - can't find one this time.

Any suggestions?

Inserting personal error message in ValidationSummary



I am creating a web form that requires a lot of validation. I use many of the validation control in asp.net already like RequiredFieldValidator and CompareValidator. 

My Problem: after my custom validation for the value entered return an error message, and I pressed enter key when the field is empty, my custom error message is overlapped by my ValidationSummary. 

Setting my custom error to visible = false on button click also does not seem to work as it requires for me to enter the value first.

This made me think, is there a way to insert my custom validation inside the ValidationSummary as an error message like for other validation control?

Thanks in advance
