Move the Office Server Web Services IIS Site

Posted By:      Posted Date: December 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Is it possible to change the Home Directory of the Office Server Web Services IIS website (Sharepoint 2007) without breaking the shared services that are in use?  We would like to change the directory to a different folder on the same Web server.

OLAP: Build an OLAP Reporting App in ASP.NET Using SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services and Office XP


Many organizations analyze their business-critical data using Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) technology. OLAP-based data mining provides a way to query multidimensional data sets and drill down into the data to find patterns. ASP.NET and the Microsoft Office Web Components (OWC) enable Web-based OLAP reporting. The OWC controls include PivotTable and Chart components that can be embedded in a Web page and scripted by programmers. In this article, the authors build a Web-based OLAP reporting app using ASP.NET, OWC, and SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services to illustrate the process.

Office Sharepoint Server Publishing Infrastructure is missing in site collection feature SharePoint

I was trying to activate the Office Sharepoint Server Publishing Infrastructure feature in the site collection features but the feature is simply not there. Is this option not available in SharePoint Foundation 2010?

Move SharePoint 2010 Server/Services

I currently have a SharePoint 2010 Enterprise server running as a virtual machine.  I want to move this to a physical server that has more power to handle the load I've been throwing at it.  What is the best approach to take to accomplish this.  Ultimately, the current server will be completely gone when this is complete.  I am using shared services with a "MySite" configuration as well as the SharePoint Enterprise Search. I think I tried this when I was running MOSS 2007 and things didn't go so well, even though I backed out the original server properly, central admin still thought it had to go to the original server. I really need to move this bad.Dave Durand

Does Word Automation Services require Office 2010 install on server to function?


Subject is the question.


My requirements are to "maintain existing functionality with current version of a windows service running on Server 2003 and automating Word through COM."   I.E. All the stuff that breaks when you upgrade the OS to Server 2008.  

My customer has already rejected several third party alternatives as "not being accurate enough"  The rendered PDF doesn't match what comes out of Word when compared with an electron microscope.

So now I'm investigating using Word Automation Services and Sharepoint 2010.   Got my development server functional with Sharepoint 2010 and Visual Studio 2010.  But my first attempts at creating rendering jobs is failing with an "ArgumentNullException" in deep inside a method I'm 100.0% sure I'm NOT passing any NULL's to. 

My VM is low on space so I figure I'd save time by asking for a conclusive answer before I make room / install Office.

Where is the Office SharePoint Server Shared Services

We want to enable Excel Services on our sharepoint. I think I have to somehow enable Shared Services. I googled, but on all the pages they say: "On the Application Management page, in the Office SharePoint Server Shared Services section, click Create or configure this farm's shared services."

But on our Central Administration site there is no Office Sharepoint Server Shared Services section.

On another page is says: On the SharePoint Central Administration Web Site, Click SharedService1 (in the quick launch part under 'Shared Services Adminsitration'). But this link is not on our Central Administration web site.

I'm logged in als the System Account of the sharepoint. (tfsservice account).

Am I missing something? Or do I have to install something to het Shared Services?

sharepoint security groups, ACL of site collection or subsite need to move in to sql server 2008 usi


HI Team,

I am new to sharepoint here is my query. i am working on MOSS 2007, SQL server 2008

I want to move the sharepoint security groups, ACL(access control list), user groups all the security and permission related data to sql server 2008 from a particular site collection or subsite. After getting the data in to sql server we should be able to update the users from sql server itself which should reflect in sharepoint sites.

best way to move site from one server to another?


I need to move one site (within a collection) from a development server to a production server.  Unfortunately, the site was used for quite a while and the amount of data in it makes it to large to save as a template with content.

Creating a Web Package (.fwp) is not an option as I need the data to go along with the site.

I read that a backup/restore (.cmp) does not include "some customizations and settings" as well as alerts.  Can anyone tell me what those type of customizations, and particularly settings these might be?

Also, if you know of another way to move a site, please let me know.

There are no mistakes; every result tells you something of value about what your are trying to accomplish.

My Site not accessible, getting error "The evaluation version of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server


I am facing this problem from last couple of days and I am not able to figure out the root cause or find some solution. When I try to access My Site. It gives "The evaluation version of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 for this server has expired" error.

I tried creating different web application for my site, and created the root site collection by selecting MySite Host template. After site collection creation when tried accessing it ended up in same error. but when i tried creating site collection of different template it worked. Only for My Site I am getting that error.

I have tried all options mentioned in the below URLs. still not able to resolve.
