Due to unusual blue screen problems on virtual host, I need to migrate Sharepoint Foundation 2010 to a new server. Everything is installed on the same server. I have a new server stood up and awaiting data. Is it as simple as going into Backup/Restore
and performing a Farm Backup and then a Farm Restore on the new server? What exactly needs to happend to get this done?
I have Sharepoint 2010 Foundation with Search Server Express installed. The Sharepoint was an upgrade from WSS v3 and search server express 2003.
After the upgrade whenever users search from the main site I get web part errors displayed on the search page. I think because it is trying to use the old search server express which is no longer installed.
Search Server Express 2010 is now installed and a Search Center web page can be viewed however when searching via the entire sites I site the web page with web part errors.
Any thoughts or any further information you require I can provide.
Can I get some clarification on a couple of points?
Firstly, what is the recommended installation path for SPFoundation and Search Server Express on the same server. Do I just install SSE 2010? Or SPF 2010 and then SSE 2010?
Secondly, when the two are installed together how do I add the a SSE 2010 search center link to my SPF 2010 site so I can search all crawled content? I've created crawls of Exchange public folders and file shares but when I use the built-in site search
box it's only returning content crawled from the local site and not anything from the other crawls.
I am having a terrrible time getting this to work. I have configured the SharePoint site and the SQL Servers involved to use Kerberos. That has been confirmed working.
I then configured the SharePoint site's Reporting Services integration (trusted account), enabled anonymous access and enabled report builder. I can launch report builder without any issues at all. The problem comes when I try to save my report. When Report
Builder is started Items->New-ReportBuilder Report it opens and display in the lower left hand corner "No current report server." When I close the Wizard dialog and click connect I enter
http://server.fqdn.net and I receive the following error:
Unable to connect to the server that is specified in the URL, 'http://servername.fqdn.net/'.
Make sure that the server is running, the URL is correct, and you have permission to use the server.
I have also tried http://servername.fqdn.net/reportsserver/. When I try that I receive a login prompt. When I enter my credentials it tries for a few seconds and then sends another login prompt. I installed
the report server using default settings. The reporting services db is on the same server as sharepoint. The configuration and other databases are on a remote S
Setting up a new install who will be using SharePoint Foundation 2010 in Standalone mode. They do not have SQL SERVER 2008 so need to utilize the Standalone option and the latest version of SQL Server 2008 Express R2. They are just getting started with SharePoint
and it is unknown how much the technology will be embraced to afford to purchase SQL Server at this point. I wanted to get that explanation out of the way before everyone tells me the best practice of installing in Farm mode only! I realize the best practice
but sometimes we have to roll with the punches because getting a client to begin using SharePoint on their current budget is better than never getting the chance to use it at all.
So SharePoint Foundation 2010 is installed with the default SQL Server 2008 R2 Express instance. Is there a procedure for moving the databases to a new drive? What is the default instance name that is created? I'm having a hard time locating that information
in the documentation. I've done this before with WSS 3.0 without issue but wondered if there were any documents on moving the newest databases and what the default instance name is. Thank you in advance.
I changed my server name yesterday and cannot access SP any more (Cannot connect to configuration database error). This article: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc288510.aspx says
you can rename using Powershell but when I open the mgmt shell I get the error "“The local farm is not accessible. Cmdlets with FeatureDependencyId are not registered” . I ran the mgmt shell "as administrator"
I enabled TCP/IP and Named Pipes in SQL Manager and connected from a remote machine. Tried to add DBO to SharePoint_Shell_Access but get an error ""Cannot use the special Principal "dbo" (Microsoft SQL Server Error 15405)".
I have re-created this on a lab machine with a pretty plain vanilla install (Single Server). I tried to run the SharePoint Config but it says "not connected to a farm". Saw an article where you can disconnect from farm (that is the next prompt) and then
reconnect. Tried and cannot reconnect...
I am really trying to avoid naming my server back to the original name, for it is a production server now (SharePoint not yet, thankfully). Any help would be greatly appreciated
Does Search Server 2010 Express include Sharepoint Foundation? Or do I need to install Sharepoint first and then install Search Server on top? This is for a brand new install on a single server.
I had a simple site in a SharePoint 2010 server, and I backed it up. That server is not available anymore, and all I have available is a SharePoint 2010 Foundation server. Can I restore on that server? I got an error message saying that the versions of "SharePoint
Foundation" on the two servers are different. Note that only one of the servers (the destination server) was running SharePoint Foundation, the other one had full SharePoint 2010.
I don't think I am using any features that are not part of SharePoint Foundation... it's an extremely simple site. Just a list with custom list forms edited in SharePoint Designer.
is possible use reporting services in Sharepoint Foundation 2010 if I have installed SQL Server 2008 R2 RTM - Express with Advanced Services? I tried various settings and configurations, but it not works (I am not able successfully configure Reporting Services
Integration in Central Administration).
Now I am not sure that is possible use reporting services in SPF 2010 + SQL Server 2008 R2 RTM - Express with Advanced Services...
I have a SharePoint foundation 2010(beta) on my Windows 7 OS Devlopment environment, now I want to upgrade this SharePoint server 2010(Beta).
Do I have to just install SharePoint server 2010 on top of current installation or any other steps need to be performed?
Thanks in advance
We have a product on sharepoint 2010 whose major feature is with the reporting services, we are checking to see if our product can be deployed in a minimum environment of sharepoint 2010 foundation.
we have a minimal test environment with the following :
windows server 2008 R2
SQL Server Express Advanced
Reporting services configured in Native Mode
Sharepoint 2010 Foundation.
I would like to know if we can enable report viewer webpart on sharepoint foundation 2010 with the reporting services in native mode. our plan is that even if the reporting services are not in sharepoint integrated mode, we are thinking of using web services
to get XML data and using the XML data in report builder 3.0 to generate reports? will the idea work in this environment? if so can anyone let us know how to get the report viewer web parts in this environment?
Thanks for any help,
