Deploying Publishing SharePoint site from development to test and production environment.

Posted By:      Posted Date: November 01, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

Hi,

 

I have created a Publishing Site in SharePoint 2010, with pages created from custom page layouts, content types and Publish Content areas which I have created using SharePoint Designer 2010.

Also, I created custom Lists, Libraries and workflows in my development environment.

I want to replicate the site in test/production environment.

Can you please suggest me the best way to package all, along with custom site settings from development environment so that I can migrate small changes to test/ production environment later also without creating .wsp as I have access to SharePoint designer 2010 only.

SharePoint 2010 Development and Test Environment

  

I've seen statements to the effect that one can develop for SharePoint 2010 on Vista or Windows 7. Could someone please clarify this for me?

If I have Windows 7 64-bit edition and enough memory, can I load SharePoint 2010, the whole nine yards, along with SQL Server 2008, SPD and Visual Studio, and have it run in a meaningful way for a lab environment? Do I need a lab domain and a lab domain controller?

Can I do the same with Windows 7 and Windows Virtual PC, running SharePoint as a VPC image? In that case, which guest operating system would be preferred, Widows 7 or Windows Server 2008?

If I use Windows 7 as the host in a non-virtual environment, what do I lose over doing the same thing but with Windows Server 2008 as the base operating system?

Thanks,

Deploying custom Web Parts on SharePoint 2007 production server

  
I would like to develop a custom SharePoint 2007 Web Part for a client. Currently I'm using Visual Studio to deploy my solution to a test environment (since it's a SharePoint Project I choose just Build -> Deploy from the menu). What are the appropriate steps to deploy it to the production server?

I'd like keep it simple and safe (i.e. use the principle of least privilege). Therefore (if possible) avoid using stsadm, achieve this through web interface, or avoid using administrative rights.

Also, can I specify the scope of my Web Part, i.e. choose on which Web Application or Site Collection will it be installed?

Migrating changes from the Development to Production Site (SP2010, SPD and Visual Studio 2010)

  
Trying to find the best (least error-prone) approach to updating a live site containing content (based Documents and Tasks mainly) with changes. This got to be a common issue - a Development environment containing new features needs to be migrated over to production but the existing data and workflows with the associated tasks should be preserved. I found this thread http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-us/sharepointdevelopment/thread/2C524797-9737-4D11-BE19-3E407C5C83CE which seems to provide a rather negative take on a tool-based approach but it's for older Sharepoint. Anything improved since then?

Deploying taxonomy term store and managed meta column from development machine to production machine

  
Hi, In my development environment, I created a taxonomy term store by importing a CSV file. I also created a site column of type "managed meta data" based on that term store. Now, I want to migrate to production environment. What is the best way to do this? When I generate the schema of my site column, it looks like this: <Field Type="TaxonomyFieldTypeMulti"    DisplayName="Article Type"    List="{d8b20e4f-ce12-4def-b59d-d44da2c13234}"    WebId="eef74e7c-a852-4c89-b811-e31b86853641"    ShowField="Path1033"    Required="FALSE"    EnforceUniqueValues="FALSE"    Group="Custom Columns"    ID="{47f78411-65fa-43c9-8cb8-68955aea1256}"    SourceID="{eef74e7c-a852-4c89-b811-e31b86853641}"    StaticName="Article_x0020_Type"    Name="Article_x0020_Type"    Version="4"    Mult="TRUE"    Sortable="FALSE"> <Default></Default> <Customization> <ArrayOfProperty> <Property> <Name>SspId</Name> <Value xmlns:q1="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" p4:type="q1:string" xmlns:p4="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">99d

Mirror SharePoint Live environment to development

  

Hi,

I Realize this question has been beaten to death lately, but I think my request is different. I have built a development farm to mirror our live MOSS 2007 farm, but am looking at a way to keep the development environment up to date with the live environment besides from a content perspective. I already have a solution in place to mirror the content db, but what about all of the binaries outside of the db's? For example, lets say I have two web parts deplolyed in live, but dozens deployed on development. I would like to "refresh" my development environment so that it represents what is in live, since every web part I have deployed in development adds elements to the web.config, binaries in GAC, customizations, etc....in essence dirties up the environment.

Besides cloning, which brings about different issues that make it undesireable.....is there any information available on designing a Development to Staging to Live environment.....or are there third party products that can "replicate" the content as well as what is outside of the content database in order to "mirror" a production version of our live environment to development? In addition, can this be done periodically so that developement environment can be "refreshed" by the live environments most current state?

Thanks!


Publishing site to Sharepoint WebServer from VS 2010

  

Hi All,

I am new to SharePoint. Started playing with SharePoint 2010 & VS2010 Premium on Windows Server 2008 R2.

Here is my doubt:

I have created a custom STS web site in VS 2010. Now I want to host it on that site on SharePoint Web Server(IIS 7.5). But when I am trying to publish from VS 2010 it shows following error: "Visual Web Developer does not support creating Web sites on a SharePoint Web server".

Can you please help on this issue.

thanks in advance.

Deploying SSIS Package configurations in production and development

  

I'm working on a SSIS package which I want to deploy onto our development environment on a daily basis as I work on it. In addition, I want it to be easy to deploy to production. We're using xml configuration files for our packages, but I haven't seen anyone discuss the entire development process.

Do people keep their production and development configuration files in source control? If so, how? Are they part of your BIDS SSIS project? I tried adding them to "Miscellaneous". i.e. Example:

I have a project with the following SSIS Packages in it:

ImportSpreadsheets.dtsx

TransferAccounting.dtsx

 

In the Miscellaneous folder I have:

ImportSpreadsheets_Dev.dtsConfig

ImportSpreadsheets_Prod.dtsConfig

TransferAccounting_Dev.dtsConfig

TransferAccounting_Prod.dtsConfig

 

I did this so I can keep them in source control. We don't use package deployment utilities, we just deploy by hand, but putting the files in Miscellaneous breaks the building of the deployment utilities because it attempts to copy the config files into the Deployment directory twice.

 

In addition, I set up the package configurations such that the

Clone production Sharepoint 2010 server to Developmet environment - steps? help?

  

Greetings all,

I'd really appreciate some thoughts and suggestions about how to make a clone of our Sharepoint 2010 Production environment that we can use for testing and development.

At the moment, we are likely to have two different servers (Production is a much more expensive, powerful server) for the scenarios; so if we make a direct clone, the Windows OS files would be upset.

Would it be enough to simply copy the Windows Shared files into the Dev system (taking all modifications with it) and the db into a cloned db?

If not, what are the things we'll have to consider, and/or has anyone accomplished this yet?

Thanks for your tips and suggestions!
