Error when crawling Exchange 2003 public folder

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

Hi all,

When crawling Exchange 2003 public folder, I get the following message in the crawl logs:

url : https://myserver/public/xxx
A component required for crawling this type of content is not registered with this application server. View the event logs for more information.

The configuration of our production environment is:

  • SharePoint Server 2010 Enterprise Version with december 2010 cumulative update
  • 2 front end + 2 app server

I tried to distribute the crawl component to different servers of the farm : same problem.

We have an integration server (a all in one configuration) and we success in crawling the public folder. The configuration of the content source and the crawl rules are exactly the same with production.

Thank you in advance for your help,

Cannot crawl Exchange 2007 SP2 Public Folder

I am trying to crawl Exchange Public Folders within the free version of Sharepoint 2010 (Search Server). I have followed the instructions within the tech document http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee806927.aspx and teh account which is being used is a domain administrator with a Mailbox and full access to the Public Folders. When ever a undertake a crawl it runs for a minute and then produces the following error: Error while crawling LOB contents. ( In order to access a public folder, the effective caller must have a mailbox. ) Is there anyway I can further diagnose this issue as I have tried different domain accounts into the crawl rule but with no effect. Many thanks in advance.

Crawling fails with 404 error message, but the IIS log tell a different story

In our clean SP2010 install, crawling stops immediately, just logging a single error message:   The object was not found.

Sharepoint 2010 & Exchange Public folders?

HI All, We are planning to move our Public folders to SharePoint 2010. But Before I would do that. I would like to know: 1. Can we receive emails with attachments in Sharepoint 2010? If yes, how the attachments are stored? Inside the email or separate? 2. How the mail enabled library and lists are different from Mail enabled public folders and Distribution list? 3. What is the format of the mail, .msg or .eml when saved in SharePoint? 4. How do we view content of the sharePoint public folder site inside outlook client? 5. What are features of Public Folders that I can't accomplish using SharePoint 2010?     Your help would be highly appreciated...

I have created a .NET connector assembly that pulls data from an in-house .asmx web service.  I have successfully created an external list in a search center site that displays this data without problem.   However, I've run into an error and a warning when indexing this list in search server 2010 for which I cannot find much information.  I've configure a content source with LOB data as the content source type and select my external data source from the list. After running a full crawl, I receive this error: Error while crawling LOB contents. ( Not a valid Win32 FileTime. ) And this warning: The content for this address was excluded by the crawler because this item was marked with a no-index meta-tag. To index this item, remove the meta-tag and recrawl.

Crawling MOSS2007 from SP2010 gives a STS2S error

Hi all, We have a MOSS2007 farm and our new SharePoint 2010 intranet needs to crawl the MOSS2007 farm. A crawl test with our MOSS2007 test environment succeeded (after opening the STS3s TCP Port on the firewall), but the same crawl test on production gives me an STS2s error message! Isn't STS2s from WSS2.0 / SharePoint 2003 ? Why does a (clean) installation of MOSS2007 give me this STS2s error message? Now, before I also open the Firewall for this STS2s protocol, I'd like to know where this comes from... grtz, Octavie

save reports in Private and Public folder using Report Builder 2.0




I have a report builder built on RB2.0. Users are able to create their reports and browse them.

Now, Users wants these reports to be saved in their Private folder and public folder.


Also, I have a UI developed in .Net 3.5 from where I am calling this report builder.  In the UI, I need to show the users those reports that they have created in a drop down list. And when the user clicks on any report (that they created should) open.


I have searched a lot but not getting any clue how to allow the business user to save a report

Exchange 2003 Inbox and Calendar webparts for MOSS 2007


I've created one Inbox and one Calendar wepbart as descibed here:


using  OWAInboxPart and OWACalendarPart (code below).

When deploying them and placing them on the same page, only one of them will show anything. It looks like the last added webpart works, while the other won't.
If any one of them is placed alone on a page, they work as expected.

Does anyone know how to make them work togheter on the same page?

Thank you for your time!

Best regards,

Hi all,

Sharepoint 2007. When I try to open documents (clicking on it) in a sharepoint document Library with office 2003, i receive an error that say that the file is not valid and to check the path.

If i try to open document with the scroll down menu and the "edit command", the document open normaly.

Even if i try to open the same document with office 2007 it works normally. 

It seem something due to the read only opening of the file...


Can you help me?
