Sharing folders under 12\logs

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

Hi Admins, 

I have a general question.  developer team does not have direct access to server. But they frequently need to dig logs for errors. (yes we have a test server but when switched to prod. environment, programs sometimes give errors that are need to be digged in prod)

Is it ok to "share" the folder program files\common files\microsoft shared\web server extensions\12\logs folder, so they can map the Web front End's logs folder to their computers ?

I dont really think it sounds good to make a sharing on production server like this,it is a sort of customization, I need your advices. is there a significant disadvantage that causes "don't!!" for this kind of operation?


Thanks in advance..

Session sharing with virtual folders



i have two solutions, 1. user management and 2. travel management. i publish the user management solution to http://localhost/usermanagement/ and i publish the travel management to http://localhost/usermanagement/travel here i face the problem. the default home page would be http://localhost/usermanagement/default.aspx, its a windows authentication in page load, i capture the username, pass it to procedure which will fetch me his credentials on access. i store these in a session. in the home page i have link to navigate to travel page, when i try to access the sessions in travel page, its empty. i tried printing the session id in both user management and travel, both are same but the sessions created in user management are empty in travel. what would be problem here and how can i resolve this. 

Can I use folders instead of logical drives to separate data from logs if all data is on a RAID10 di


I've got six clustered SQL Instances storing data on a SAN, a SAN that is all RAID10.  It has one RAID10 disk pool.   Did it make any sense for me to create separate iSCSI initiators for data and log volumes?  I have no RAID5 space on which to store the data.  All the information gets the same high-quality access.


Could I have saved myself some time and just made one big disk for each instance, separating logs, data, backup, temp and master in folders?


When the data is sent, via iSCSI, to the SAN, the SAN director takes the data and does what it wants, irrespective of the operating system that sent it.  I think all the old rules of thumb go out the window.

Sharing authentication ticket between two applications


Hi all,

I have two web applications:

1. http://www.mysite.com - primary app running at the root of the web server

2. http://www.mysite.com/second_app - running in a virtual directory

At user authentication, I'm using FormsAuthenticationTicket to set up authentication cookies. Is it possible to share the same cookie for both the apps?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Many thanks!

Sharing IUnityContainer across application



We are considering to use unity container in fairly big application. Having learned ins and outs of unity I found most examples on microsoft site creates contains in a using clause such as

using(IUnityContainer container = new UnityContainer())



Ideally, we want to use "container" object across application not just one place. I would like to ask community here who have used unity in their applications how would you share "container" across projects in a solution. From the fact that "container" should be disposed as soon as you use it, if doing so would not make "container" available in the whole solution.

What pattern should be used to create container and disposing and make it available across solution?

Does keeping "container" alive for long time hit performance of the application?

'There is no Web named' in logs


I was wondering if anybody could help me.  When i look at logs in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\LOGS i get a lot of errors saying 'There is no Web named'.

For example:-
09/08/2008 09:29:37.17  w3wp.exe (0x1BA0)                        0x296C Windows SharePoint Services    General                        8kh7 High     There is no Web named "/quality/Audit Reports/Forms/AllItems.aspx". 

There are no errors in server application event log.  I was hoping to find out what this means and if i should worry about the errors.
