Mapping the local drafts folder

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

We have our Staging server in a DMZ and our Content Managers are required to login to this domain.

They have a requirement to edit documents. If the 'Use my local drafts folder' option is checked, the document is copied across the domains to a drafts folder on a shared drive.

We are about to close down this drive, so where do I go to re-map this path? Is it in Sharepoint or would it be my network profile settings?

Can "Use my local drafts folder" option be entirely disabled?

Is there a a way to disable the "Use my local drafts folder" option (upon check-out) entirely?

We have a SharePoint 2007 library with some users running Office 2007 and some running Office 2003.  Check-out is required for editing.  I would prefer users not even be presented with that option regardless of which Office product(s) they have loaded.

Possible?  If so, how?!?!?!

Contacts created in Outlook put into 'Local Failures' folder

We have users with Outlook 2007 sync'd to a WSS 3.0 contact lists. New contacts created in WSS appear fine in Outlook. However if a user "Creates new contact from same company" (within outlook) or drag/drops contacts from outlook personal contacts to sharepoint list, the contact always gets put into the 'local failures' box. There have been posts about checking any contact website address is entered correctly, this is not the issue.  During outlook send/receive, these errors appear: Task 'SharePoint' reported error (0x81020014) : 'Failed to copy one or more items. For details, see the log file .' Task 'SharePoint' reported error (0x00000000) : 'OURCOMPANY Intranet - COMPANY Contacts - Failed to copy one or more items because some are not compatible with SharePoint. The failed items were moved to your Local Failures folder and replaced with copies from the server. If you need assistance troubleshooting items in your Local Failures folder, a Help topic is available at the following address: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=70300. For details, see the log file .' The microsoft link is dead, so no use. Can anyone help? - thanks

Copy folder from FTP site using SSH to local machine using DOS batch files



Is there a way to copy a folder from an FTP site listening on SSH connection using DOS batch files? I know that there are several third party tools out there that accomplish this. I am NOT looking for that solution. I tried this in Powershell, but could not find a solution, and I am hoping a simple DOS batch file can handle this.


Any help would be appreciated...

Problem Mapping a Sharepoint folder to a drive in Windows XP


I can map a folder on sharepoint from a Windows Vista machine with the following command line

NET USE z: "http://srv-nam/sites/folder-1/folder-2"

...and it works just fine.

If I then logon with exactly the same user to a Windows XP box and type exactly the same command I get

Failed with system error 67; Network name cannot be found


Note that this is not a HTTPS issue as the server is not set up to respond to HTTPS requests.

Does anyone have any ideas how I get the Windows XP box working please?

Local variable scoping in C#

In my previous post, Compiler-generated scopes for local variable declarations, I briefly touched on the issue of multiple meanings applied to the same name. In this post, I'll aim to flush out the compiler's rules with regards to binding names in their local scopes.

Compiler-generated scopes for local variable declarations

I was tasked with understanding and fixing a bug on error reporting with foreach iteration variables the other day, and it got me thinking about local variable scoping rules in C# in general. First, the bug.

Changing from Local to WCF


I've been handed an application thats connection string implies a local host connection.

I want to make this connection a remote connection, to a database located on a Server.  I want the client and server to be able to communicate with one another remotely, instead of a local connection.

How does one create the Data Service, and establish end points to Server and Client?  Is it as simple as creating a contract (which I have limited knowledge on constructing), between the two locations, setting up the dataservice, security, and ratifying the 'connetions'?

A smidge of insight, please ;-)

Foundations: Workflow Services for Local Communication


This month's column describes how to use WCF for communication between a workflow and a host application in Windows Workflow Foundation 3. This knowledge should help developers with their efforts using WF3 and prepare them for WF4, where WCF is the only abstraction over queues (referred to as "bookmarks" in WF4) that ships with the framework.

Trying to launch a .exe file on my local computer from intranet site.


I have been told I can launch a local program on my PC from my intranet site but it has to be done with Active X or vbscript and not javascript.  I found the following little sample html code that will launch notepad.  However, I cannot figure out how to put this in a button, etc., within my aspx or code behind to execute it.  Does anybody have any idea how to do this?  I have a lot of javascript code I am launching urls with and I have even tried using that but again, I have been told that to do it client side it needs to be vbscript or something like this.  Any ideas?
