Sharepoint/fpse server2003 problems

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#
 

Been a while so forgive me.

Setup a server 2003 machine, made webs and sub webs, all work fine, but trying to teach some high school students some basic web, scripting, asp then on to .net. trying to begin with sharepoint designer to IIS. all usare admin group, so security should not be an issue, all have fpse on the main and sub sites.

When I try to connect sharepoint says it can't find site, but then lists the remote site in right pane. btw sharepoint designer 2007.

If I remove and reinstall fpse then reinstall it works one time then the same issue.

I have setup remote desktop so if anyone wants to see I'll give credentials, nothing on the machine but OS and these blank sites. figure the issue lies either in a service pack or fpse's.

If anyone can help please let me know what more info you need.

Thanks

SSRS 2008 R2 and sharepoint 2007 report builder problems

  

I upgraded our enterprise sql server 2008 to sql server 2008 r2 last weekend.  Along with this i installed the report builder 3.0 on the servers as well and the updated ssrs add in for sharepoint.  The upgrade went fine, no errors that i could find.  The problem is now when i go to a library that has the report builder content type enabled and click report builder report under new it does not load report builder 3.0.

I updated the custom report builder url in central administration from /_vti_bin/ReportBuilder/ReportBuilder_2_0_0_0.application to /_vti_bin/ReportBuilder/ReportBuilder_3_0_0_0.application

however when i do click the new report builder report it kicks me over to http://company.com/ReportServer_MossEnt  which itemizes out each individual sharepoint site in the farm.

Is the integration of ssrs 2008 r2, sharepoint 2007 and report builder 3.0 work?  did i install the wrong version of the report builder add in?  The above is the only problem i am having now.

all servers are server 2008, 64 bit and moss 2007 enterprise with sp2 & april 2010 cu


Attachements problems - also - How to add Office Communicator link to sharepoint Form ?

  

Hello

I have created an Infopath 2007 form and published it to Sharepoint 2007.

1. I can add "attachements" to the form, but the function can handle only one attachement per link. If i need to add 10 attachements, i have to create 10 attachement functions to the form.

Is it possible to create one attachement function in the Infopath form, that is able to save several attachements under it?

2. Is it possible to save .exe, .msi and similar files to the form as attachements? Sharepoint says security settings prohibit this.

3. How can i add a link that shows up as MS Office Communicator link in the form? For example: John Smith in Office communicator is now Online. I want his name and his status to show also in the Infopath form, when somebody opens it in Sharepoint.

Please help!

 


Sharepoint Foundation 2010 problems with Office 2007 ActiveX controls

  
I have a SPF server that I recently upgraded from WSS 3 using the database attach method. The new server configuration is SQL 2008 R2 with SPF 2010 on Windows 2008 64bit SP2. Mostly things are working fairly well, though there have been a few fires to put out. The latest inflamation seems to be centered around ActiveX controls for Office 2007. I'm getting the following message whenever I try to create a new document using the New button: " 'New Document' requires a Microsoft SharePoint Foundation-compatible application and web browser. To add a document to this document library, click the 'Upload Document' button." On the client side, the browser is IE8 on Windows 7 (Windows is 64bit, though the browser is in 32 bit mode.) using Office 2007. I've also had the same problem with systems running XP. In terms of troubleshooting, other activeX related features seem to be working fine. I can open datasheet views, if I click on a document, it will open in the appropriate client. However, I have some libraries where the Word document template opens the document information panel and those will give thhe following message on open: "One or more ActiveX controls could not be displayed because either: 1)Your current security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on thi page , or 2) You have blocked a publisher of one of the contols. As a result the page mi

Sharepoint 2007 Task List problems

  
I have encountered some problems with the task list web part and I wondered if anyone could suggest any solutions?   So heres what is happening. I create a new task list and check the box to have it send out emails when tasks are assigned. I create a new task, assign it to myself and I get an email, great! Then I see that everyone elses tasks are viewable in sharepoint and in outlook 2007 when I sync the webpart with that, which is no good. Okay no problem I'll make a change in the advanced settings of the webpart so 'only their own' is set for read and edit. Sounds good. However now when I create a new task and assign it to myself (just like before) I don't get an email (and nor does anyone else). (Incidently I tried reversing the item level permissions but still no emails). A second problem seems to be that people now also don't see tasks in sharepoint that have been created by someone else and assigned to them. Useful!   Any help would be much appreciated. More info can be provided as needed.

Problems with access to external lists in SharePoint 2010

  
Our environment is SharePoint 2010 Enterprise, Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard and SQL server 2008 R2.   We have External lists that access a local database in SharePoint SQL Server. When new lists are added and permissions are given in the SharePoint Central Administration the domain users had to be in the Windows administration group to access the lists.   Recently in the same environment the domain users were removed from Windows Administration user group and could access the external lists.   In another similar test server we found adding the domain users to Windows Administration does not give the new domain users access to External lists.   The inconsistency is the issue. Has anyone seen this issue or provide a possible solution?

SharePoint Designer Problems

  
I am experiencing an issue recreating functionality for a web part in a new site that exists in another site.  I start by adding a Data View SharePoint control and point the datasource to a list that is similar to the list working in the working site.  Next I copy the XSL used in the old site and copy the contents into the new version.  Everything works except the drop down arrows that provide you options such as editing the item don't appear for the new web part.  I noticed that when looking at the List Properties through the control there are no tabs for Settings, Security and Supporting Files.   Does anyone have any insight on how to get this to work?

Strange Permission Problems with Sharepoint 2003

  
Hi We are having a problem with access permissions with sites created in Sharepoint.  We set the permissions for individual site via 'Site Settings' for that site and lock it down to certain individuals selected from Active Directory. However the problem is some users who are in the administrators Active Directory AD Group manage to get to access the site when they do not have any permissions set via 'site settings' Any ideas on why this is occuring and any possible solution. TIA

SharePoint Development Problems and Issues with Workflows - New to Forum - Can someone help? :)

  

Please forgive me if this is posted in the incorrect forum, but I didn't see another that was a better fit.  We are on SharePoint 2007.  Here are the following items that I've asked our in house SharePoint people to answer and they have not been able to.

1)      When in a workflow an email notice is sent to multiple people that a document needs to be reviewed is there a way to do the following:

a.       If notice is sent to 4 people and person #2 accepts the task, can a file be “checked out” or “locked” in some way so that the other three people cannot edit the document or accept the task?  Is there a way to notify the other three that that person #2 has accepted the task?

Sharepoint WF developed on 32 bit computer, Deploying on 64 bit computer giving problems

Sharepoint backup problems

  

Hello, As a sharepoint newbie with practically 0% experience, I have inherited a sharepoint 2007 setup.  Our 3rd party backup tool is not working (commvault) with this sharepoint server. 

To troubleshoot, I went into MOSS 2007's central administration and tried to initiate a backup to a local folder on the sharepoint server. The estimated size of the backups when i was starting the backup was approx 4.5 gb. The first time I tried this, the backups never finished after 12+ hrs and only ~300kb was in the folder.  I have tried backing up to the local folder e:\backupfolder and have now tried \\servername\e$\backupfolder and it fails also.

I tried to initiate another backup and it said to delete the job from timer definitions.  I did so and tried again, now the backups fail almost instantly with the error, "The backup/restore job failed. In order to rerun the backup/restore the timer job must be deleted from the Timer Job Definitions page. Failure Message: Backup or restore is already running."

I'm confused as to whter backups are running, are not running or hung.  I do see some logging but do not understand the logs.  Below I will paste relevant time of logs when I tried to initiate latest ba

Problems to connect to sharepoint server from another computer

  

Hi.

recently i developed a webservice in Visual Studio 2008 that connects to Microsoft office sharepoint server 2007, i've already have both the WS and the SharePoint server deployed in the same IIS, and when i create a client to that webservice that its on the same machine that the iis, it works perfectly.

 

but the problem comes when i run this client from a different instance or machine, i'm not able to connect to the SharePoint server, i'm wondering if there is a configuration that i'm missing.

 

this is my web.config from my webservice:

 

<?xml version="1.0"?>

Problems with Exposing Excel contents in SharePoint 2010

  
<!-- [if gte mso 10]> <mce:style>

I have an Excel spreadsheet and I want to use it to trigger a work flow ... BUT ... I don't want to just use the creation or modification of it to trigger the work flow ... I want some data in the sheet to trigger it. 

I followed some How-To's and was able to get to the point where I set up a Site Column and associated it to a Custom Content Type (i.e.: my Excel sheet) and when someone creates a new document this is loaded with the ability to manually enter the value in the Document Properties bar that appears.  Great ... but why would I want to manually enter the value again when I have already have it in a cell below.  I thought, OK a little more work to do and I am done.

So, after some research, I learned that I have to  create a named cell range and custom field in my Excel document and then expose that to SharePoint. I was referenced to this article (http://tinyurl.com/29l98rl) and performed the steps as outlined ... and thought, "Great that was easy ... I am done !!"

Well ... that wasn't quite true.  After testing this out I soon realized that the data in the cell was not being populated into the Site Column.  So I went back and double checked it and am pretty sure that I did everything right (

Sharepoint 2010 and Outlook 2007 Problems!

  

I am using SP 2010 and have outlook 2007. I am using the calendar synch option and am easily able to synch the calendar from SP to Outlook. I was easily able to drag and drop all appointments at once from my outlook calendar to the SP calendar and they showed up on the SP site. Now I am unable to make any further changes on the SP calendar using Outlook that will show on the SP site. It will say it is "Send/Receive Status % complete" at the bottom of the Outlook screen, but when I look at the SP site, no changes are reflected. It will allow the opposite, if I make changes to the calendars on the SP site and then the changes will show on my Outlook SP calendars.

I have full permission in SP. Really confused why it let me synch at first FROM Outlook to the SP site, but no longer will.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!
