Move MySite with stsadm backup from FARM A to FARM B within same Domain

Hi, I'd to move, with a series of "stsadm -o backup -url..." command, a lot of mySites from one Farm to another in the same Active Directory.

MySite creation never completes

Our moss 2007 SP2 farm currently won't create any My Sites.  When a new user visits my.domain.com they get the "Please wait while your personal site is setup for the first time and the default document libraries and lists are created.  This may take several seconds." message but it just sits there forever.

I'm not sure when it stopped working as we only really create new accounts at certain periods during the year - it was working 6 months ago.

I can't find any log messages about the creation/failure - any tips on where to look?


Mysite in the Enterprise


Hi all,

I'm using and administrating sharepoint in the education environment and have a question regarding Mysite.

I have created a central portal for the office I work in for internal use, and within that have created department sites from that. For the sake of it it's hosted at sharepoint.local.office, with MySite being hosted at mysite.local.office.

As other districts join the domain forest I've asked if they would like to have their own sharepoint site. In saying yes I then create sharepoint.districtx.whatever, but have disabled MySite creation for them.

Each district is tied to their onw Shared Services for the purpose of searching and such.

Ultimately I would like to permit each district to have their own MySite domain, but I have glanced through various things and keep seeing this thing that if MySite is deployed a certain way users will get a disconnected experience with sharepoint and other users. I'm just not unserstanding what is meant by the "disconnected experience" any ideas on that?

In addition, I would like each shared service to have their own mysite, if that's possible under their own URL. I'm sure it is, but maybe I'm just missing some central piece that gives me that Aha moment of understanding.

How are other folks using mysites under such an environment?

Extended MySite: Profile picture uploading to the wrong zone.

I'm experiencing a problem where uploading a profile picture, in a MySite, uploads it to the wrong zone.

What I've done is created one web application and configured SSP to use that same one. As a result, the MySite host location is in that same web application:

Default Zone:
http://my.domain.com  <-- default SharePoint site.
http://my.domain.com/personal <-- MySite host

I then extended that web application to enable FBA & anonymous access:

Internet Zone:
http://extended.domain.com <-- extended default SharePoint site.

Now I"m able to navigate to a user's MySite using the extended URL (http://extended.domain.com/personal)...but when I upload a new profile picture in my MySite... it prompts me for new credentials because it's trying to upload to the Default zone (http://my.domain.com).

I found the following thread that talks about this...but there wasn't any resolution:

What is the best practices when configuring a MySite in an extended web application? How can I fix the situation I'm encountering above?

P.S. I tried to change the MySite Host location (via SSP in the Central Administration)

MOSS 2007 and MySite in Outlook

Looking to get the My Site feature working in Outlook 2007 when you right click someone's name in an email. I've followed this (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/968115) and I can add/remove various fields but when it comes to the My Site feature it nevers show a link to the users Sharepoint My Site. It's strange because the URL for people's My Site is in AD. It's not like I even get a error message where the My Site option should be - the field never displays...help!

Problem accessing Sharepoint 2007 MySite


My users are having an issue accessing their mysites.  When they go to the main portal page or any other site and click the link at the top right of the page to go to their Mysite they are thrown into an endless authentication loop.  If they cancel out of the loop the URL in the address bar is for http://mossserver/_layouts/MySites.aspx

For a user to successfully get to their myself they need to enter the full url like http://mossserver/personal/username/default.aspx

Now, I know somewhat how this happened.  It resulted from me trying to delete a user's mysite and I apparently did it wrong but I'm not sure what I did.  It almost seems like I deleted a redirect page or something...

Looking for any ideas.



Mysite Default Master Page



We have been using the mysite section of sharepoint for 6 months and have recently changed the default.master is there any quick way of changing all the users pages without losing anydata.

I know i can go into the Master Page library for the users, upload the new default.master and then set this as default within sharepoint designer, however this will be quite a lenghty task for me to complete for all our userbase.

Could you please advise if there is a quicker way to do this.

MOSS 2007 Backup Strategies

I saw some backup strategy best practices papers stating you could backup the databases and site content separately, but was told by Microsoft that if you do that, and have to do a bare metal restore you will not be able to recover because the site content and database will be out of sync. Does anyone have a proven DR process for MOSS 2007 that they can share? We have Commvault in house right now, but are using it only to backup the databases and file system separately. Should we be using the built in sharepoint backup stdadm(sp?) tools?

SMO Backup and Restore Help

Hello Friends, I am new to SMO, Till now I have only worked with Selct,Insert/update Queries.. Now I want to Implement some backup and restore feature for my application. I looked at some documents of SMO and found it is possible using SMO. First of all I will explain my situation. My application wants to store data belongs to different companies(which is maintained with in application) in to single database server, Sql server 2008. I am planning to use Partition Scheme function and create filegroup for each company. Advantage here is, taking backup of each company will be easy. I am generating primary key for each table without taking into consideration of companies. In other words Particular table's ID 1,2 belongs to Company A, 3 Belongs to Company B and 5 belongs to Company A... But these data will be split in to Different filegroups using Company ID.(horizontal partitioning) Ok... Now the Problem.. My backup for a particular company was taken successfully. Now I want Restore function. When I am trying to restore this backup to somewhere else. Target database may or may not contain Companies installed. When Restoring Will there be any Primary key Violation? I know one solution is to generate primary key by taking into consideration Company Id. But this will cause a complete rewriting of code, as it contains lot of edit/delete queries.  I want to know, whether the

SQL2008 - Cannot Restore a new database from a full backup of a different one, database in use

I am trying to restore a brand new database from a copy of another one and am encountering an error message stating: System.Data.SqlClient.SqlError: The file <Backup source database file location> cannot be overwritten.  It is being used by database <Backup Source Database>. (Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo) I am running the Restore procedure with the REPLACE option and am wondering why it is stating that the source database is the database in use when I am trying to restore and overwrite a completely different database. This issue happens when running the replace both in C# using SMO and when manually restoring with SqlServer Management Studio Interesting note is, the original source database is created / deployed using a database project within VisualStudios 2010 and then deployed to SqlServer through VisualStudios. Any thoughts on why this is happening? Thanks in advance for any help!
