Lost access to Central Administration Page

After trying to troubleshoot why all the e-mail alerts stopped working, I ran the best practices analayzer and ran the commands it suggested the paragraph below. "The same account that you use to run SharePoint 3.0 Central Administration must be configured as the SharePoint Timer Service. If they are not the same, the system may not be able to send Alert Notifications and you will not be able to add a content database to a web application using the Manage Content Databases page. Although there are built in mechanisms to keep these accounts synchronized, it is possible to manually change the SharePoint Timer Service account. If the account that you are using to run SharePoint 3.0 Central Administration is the correct account, you can log on to the Web server where the SharePoint Timer Service running as the wrong account. From a command prompt change to the directory where the SharePoint Timer Service is running, this is typically C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\BIN, and run the command: stsadm -o updatefarmcredentials -identitytype configurableid -userlogin domain\account -password password. Although you could directly update the SharePoint Time Server account by opening Administrative Tools, Component Services, you should use this approach only as a last resort.

Manage Content on a Master Page from a Central Location?


Phew long title! But what is the best way to manage and render content on a master page that you want to show up on ever single site/subsite? For example I have a bunch of site collections with footer links. Each site collection however will have its own sets of links but we don't want them hard coded into the master page - so we don't have to manage 80 different master pages.

Right now I am using an XML file in the style library which is called from the master page. This works alright, but if that file gets deleted or something then the whole site breaks because it can't find that file. Additionally, the XML file is finicky with some of the stuff you put in it.

Any better suggestions?

Use VS Project Module to Deploy Page to Central Admin


Does anyone know if it's possible to use a Visual Studio project Module to provision a page to the Central Admin site when a SITE feature is activated?

If I use  

<Module Name="MirrorAdmin" Url="_admin/Datagility">
    <File Path="MirrorAdmin.aspx" Url="MirrorAdmin.aspx" />

(or similar, I haven't copied and pasted) the file gets deployed to a folder called _admin under the site where my solution gets deployed. Do I need to create a separate solution and deploy it to the admin site or is there something I can use in the Url= element to deploy the page to the correct place?

Central Administration returns blank page after installation on Windows 7

Hi, I have successfully installed SharePoint 2010 on Windows 7.  However when I browse to Central Administration, I just get a blank page.  I have been able to create a new web application and teamwork site using PowerShell, and that site also returns a blank page.  In the IIS log, I can see that the requests produce a 500 error.  Rerunning the Configuration Wizard has not helped.  Other ASP.NET sites run ok.

Any suggestions?

Changing the smaller graphic requires a Windows SharePoint Services compatible Web page editor

Unique content within master page based on conditions met


 Hi all-

I would like to present users with unique content based on certain conditions being met as they land on the home page (default.aspx).  The condition logic will be in the VB code behind Page Load event. The content will go in a content placeholder as specificed from the master page. 

However, the content change wouldn't be something small (ie making a panel or label visible or not) but rather it will be different HTML,  Divs and databound gridview content.  The HTML content will be stored in the database.

Can someone point me in the right direction for best practices on how to accomplish this?


Launch CMD File From ASPX Page


My organization uses a CMD file to install updated files for a major enterprise application. Currently, we send out an email to users with a link to the file and instructions to run it, BUT inevitably users don't update their machines until their in field and try to start the app.


We're now liking the idea of using an ASPX page to prompt the users to run the updates and to capture the fact that the updates have been run. I realize that we can't capture the success or failure of the update. But we'd like to capture the user accessed the page.


Is it possible to embed into the markup for the page a link to the file on the local intranet that the users can click on to run the file?

The user accessing the page would capture that they did just that. We'd deal with wether or not the update was actually installed or if it failed later with them directly.
