SharePoint on one WFE shows 404 Not Found

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

I have server setup with 1 CA with multiple WFE.. In one of the WFE, when I browse to the site, it shows 404 Not Found error for default.aspx. However, it's ok when I browse to _layouts/settings.aspx or _layouts/viewlsts.aspx. When I use SPD, i get below error: 

 soap:ServerServer was unable to process request. ---> The file http://[servername]/default.aspx does not exist.

All is OK at CA server. Anyone has any idea?

  • Excel Services XLSX shows different results when accessed via Sharepoint UX vs REST

    I have an Excel services report that connects to Project Server 2010 data via an ODC.  Looks great when I view the XLSX through the browser via the Sharepoint doc library; everything refreshes, no warnings, all is good.    But when I access this same file via the Excel Services REST call: https://myserver/_vti_bin/ExcelRest.aspx/ProjectBICenter/My%20Reports/Initiative%20Status%20Report.xlsx/model/PivotTables('InitiativeStatusSummary')?$format=html I get an older version of the report -- not refreshed with the latest data.   I have the file set to "refresh data when opening the file" in the data connectioon properties.     What am I missing?

    ASP:Upload control . Uploading into a SharePoint Document Library Subfolder and FILE NOT FOUND error

    RE: ASP:Upload control . Uploading into a SharePoint Document Library Subfolder and FILE NOT FOUND error Two Issues, apparently unrelated. I have subfolders like this /ApplicantDocuments/20 and /ApplicantDocuments/21 (where 20 and 21 are my subfolders and ApplicantDocuments is my library. 1. The below function is erroring with file not found, but I confirmed I'm sending the fully qualify path (i.e c:\test.txt) to System.IO.FileStream content = System.IO.File.Open(documentFileName, System.IO.FileMode.Open); 2. Even if it worked, looking at the code, I'm not using argument foldername.  I'm passing 20 to the argument. How can I make sure it uploads into subfolder 20 of ApplicantDocuments? Thank you.     Just testing in test environment. Will tighten code once it works.   public void UploadDocumentToSite(string foldername, string documentFileName) {      SPSite siteCollection = new SPSite("https://xxxxxx");      SPWeb web = siteCollection.OpenWeb();      //SPSite.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true;      //Web.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true;      string Lib = "ApplicantDocuments";      SPFolder destFolder = web.GetFolder(Lib);      sendmail(documentFileName+" "+foldername);

    Mysite SharePoint 2010: Displayname shows domainname/username?


    Hi !

    I setting up MySite on SharePoint 2010 for my organization. MySite is our first priority to get up and going. Everything is installed and working.

    - SharePoint installed
    - Active Directory is synced

    When I browse around for users in the search bar, everything looks fine. I can use the organization chart to browse up and down, and their names is all correct. 

    Problem is: 
    When a user connects to MySite for the first time, the MySite is obviously created and the user can start to add content and so on.
    But - After the user logged in for the first time, his Displayname (property collected from AD) shows as "domainname/username" 

    After we tried and tested a couple of users and they logged in, the organization chart is falling apart, and the displaynames are all changed to domainname/username. 


    Anyone know what causes this?

    Infopath form on sharepoint always shows scrollbar


    I'm using Infopath 2007 with Sharepoint 2007 server.  Now every time I try to view a form, the form acts like it is too large and shows TWO sets of scrollbars.  The inner set of scrollbars are both vertical and horizontal, the outer scrollbar is just horizontal.

    I have tried removing images, removing parts of the form, shrinking the form content down to very small, opening the browser window up over two monitors.  Nothing I do seems to get rid of the scrollbars.

    Can anyone give me some suggestions?

    Fast Search 4 Sharepoint 2010 Business Data Connectivity (BDC) - IEntity Could not be found


    Hi, I am using Fast for Sharepoint and I have created a simple Employee database in SQL server 2008 and I am trying to crawl this database.

    Using Sharepoint designer, I have created an external repository and I have configured it to look at my test database. After trying to crawl this database - I get two successfyul documents crawled - which are just junk documents. And 5 errors.  The errors say:

    Error while crawling LOB contents. ( IEntity could not be found using criteria 'Id=2502'. )

    I also noticed that if I was to disable "Defaul Action" from the BDC configuration, then I get all successful crawled documents. However, if I click on any of those documents in the search page, then it brings me to "unkown page". 

    This makes sense since Default Action (View Profiles) is disabled. Does anyone know how to avoid this error message above without having to disable Defaul Action check box? 

    P.S. I can also see that the connection between SQL Server - BDC - SP is working since when I create a user profile page, I can see that data populate.  

    SharePoint Edit Form Shows Field Tabs over Field Item - How Can I Hide These


    I am working with a custom edit form in SharePoint designer and I notice that when the form is displayed it shows the form field title in the column on the left and also in a tab directly above each field in the column on the right.  My question is how do I remove those tabs? IOW I just want to show the form field title on the left and the form field on the right; I don't want those grey tabs above the form field.

    Field shows as when using SSIS and sharepoint adapter


    Hello, I am setting up an SSIS usingthe Sharepoint Source adapter. I am replacing and existing process that imports data from Sharepoint into Excel directly, but this is manual.  The sharepoint source adapter seems to truncate column names or provides different column names then what is visible on the user Sharepoin site - they all do not match my manual import into Excel and there are additional fields.  I'd assume that what it is returning is the actual Sharepoint Database column name.  Anyway, I need to map my fields to my existing process in SQL.  The only way I know how to do this and identify what columns are being returned, I am attempting to import the data into Excel using SSIS through the Excel Destination.  I'm having an issue with a few fileds....I have a field/column called QAReviews which is importing into Excel with all the fields for each record showing <Lon Text> instead of the value the Sharepoint site actually contains.  In my manual Excel import process, this field shows the correct data.  By the way, on sharepoint this is a choice field. Can someone tell me why I'm getting something different through SSIS then what I get from using the manual import in Excel.  I also exported the data from Sharepoint to Access and again I get the correct data. Please advise.
