HTTP 504 Errors in SharePoint

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

I have some users are experiencing HTTP 504 errors in SharePoint. This is occurring when they just connect to the actual SharePoint site. Internet Explorer is just displaying a generic error message but I captured a more detailed error through Fiddler. The result was this:

ReadResponse() failed: The server did not return a response for this request.

The user can either wait a few minutes or refresh the page a few times then everything will function normally again. Has anyone else experienced this?

SharePoint crawl errors on files which are not present

All, I'm noticing 2 errors in my crawl logs. Neither of the files exist anywhere on our site. The URLs are http://.../forms/repair.aspx and http://.../forms/combine.aspx and the error message is 'Error in the Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services Protocol Handler'. Our crawl normally takes about 3 and a half hours. Recently, it's been taking 5-6 hours. These 2 errors are logged at the end of the crawl. While the crawl is running, I see the success count growing and at about 3 and a half hours into the process, the success count stops growing. I'm not sure what the crawl is doing for the next 2 or so hours, but if finally logs the 2 errors mentioned earlier at the end of the crawl, then completes. I have tried resetting the crawled content and changing the index location of the SSP, but neither have worked.  I have also tried excluding the path to these two files with crawl rules, but that hasn't worked. I am on SharePoint 2007 SP2. Any ideas? Thanks

SharePoint Database Consistency Errors

Hi All, I have noticed that my sharepoint content database contains many database consistency errors. I have run following SQL command to verify these errors ALTER DATABASE your_database_name SET SINGLE_USER WITH ROLLBACK IMMEDIATE DBCC CheckDB ('your_database_name', REPAIR_REPAIR_FAST) ALTER DATABASE your_database_name SET MULTI_USER Now I want to remove them safely with any application error. Is there any method to remove these errors ? For Information: I know following SQL commands will remove these consistency errors but with data loss. I want to know what type of data will be lost and whether it is safe to run below commanrds with REPAIR_ALLOW_DATA_LOSS parameter ALTER DATABASE your_database_name SET SINGLE_USER WITH ROLLBACK IMMEDIATE DBCC CheckDB ('your_database_name', REPAIR_ALLOW_DATA_LOSS) ALTER DATABASE your_database_name SET MULTI_USER Thanks and Regards..

User permissions in SharePoint 2010 act differently in http and https

I installed SharePoint 2010, created a site (complete with a document library), and assigned user permissions.  Additionally, I set up certificate authentication for all users.  Two problems occur: 1. As the system administrator, when I access the https site, I no longer have permissions to add/edit users 2. When user's, who have permissions to edit/add a document/folder click on "Add document" or the folder icon to add a new folder, they get an error. Any help is much appreciated.

HTTP 500 After Sharepoint 2010 Install on Win 2008 R2

Environment specifics: Windows 2008 R2 SQL 2008 (Version: 10.0.2746.0) No internet connection so I installed all the prerequisite software. I have two domain accounts: SPAdmin and SPFarm SPAdmin is what I use to install Sharepoint. SPFarm runs the app pool, timer service etc. Domain: Development domain. Scenario: After the SP Setup Wizard, Central admin is inaccessible and gives a HTTP 500 error. I checked the recommended permissions for both accounts and they both appear to be in the correct groups. The only way I can get it to work is to add the SPFarm account as a local admin. So it appears to be a permissions issue. But I can't figure out what the issue is or even where to start. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

SharePoint Designer 2010 errors out when trying to connect to SharePoint 2010

When trying to connect Designer 2010 to our SharePoint 2010 we have setup here, the web seems to open, but then it bombs out with an error "An error occurred while trying to fetch data from your SharePoint site. Unknown response from the server.". And we're stuck as of now. Noting this bombs out also from Designer 2010 on the server, as well as from my workstation, so it's some sort of service issue.We've done:1) Firewalls off, on both server and my desktop2) I've been made admin everywhere, including the farm admin. Doesn't just die on my user, but all users get same error.3) Clicking lots of checkboxes in hundreds of places :)Any thoughts as to why designer dies?NotingThat when I Open Site in Designer 2010, and put the Url in the Site Name, the folder structure does show the folders of the site, so I can see images, _catalogs, SitePages, etc. It's just when trying to connect is when it doesn't work.

Sharepoint list NewFormUsr form page gives HTTP 404 error



We have main SP list say X, within that we have other child SP list say A, B and C. When I view all available list in the SP site I can view all list here (http://server/sitename/_layouts/viewlists.aspx?Basetype=0)

When trying to add new item individually to child list the NewFormUsr.aspx page opens with popup message "You are only allowed to add new items from the [Main List Name] Screen".

Going back to main list DispFormUsr.aspx page I can see a form with all columns of the main list and at the bottom all child list with a link to add new items to them. However, when we try to add new item to child list from this page the NewFormUsr.aspx for child list gives webpage cannot be found error. I'm not sure why this suddenly started to happen as it use to work before. Can someone advice if they had similar problem and how was it solved?

Windows Application Log Event Errors writing back to SharePoint Library fields


Hi has anyone done anything like this?

My Library workflow is writing to an External List (MS SQL backended).  If an exception is thrown in MSSQL (Stored Procedure, Trigger, etc) I would like to create a mechanism for writing something back to my Library besides the workflow column saying "Error Occured".

I could create a text field to provide some error feedback, anybody ever did something like this?

Opening SharePoint List Attachments - HTTP 500 Internal Server Error

Hi All,


We are programmatically attaching documents/attachments to the list item through a web-part.

I'm using the below code to accomplish this. (Fileupload control is rendered in the webpart)

byte[] buffer = new byte[inputStream.Length];

inputStream.Read(buffer, 0, (int)inputStream.Length);



spListItem.Attachments.Add(this.fileUploadCtrl.PostedFile.FileName, buffer);



The attachments are getting added fine. But in some cases, only the file is attached but not the contents. when we click on the attached file name, we get the following error:


Has anyone encountered this issue? Any help is highly appreciated.
