I have setup 2nd front-end server - so where are IIS sites hosted ?

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 14, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#


I am in process of deploying an internet facing site with FBA. I have added a new front-end server in DMZ. On my internal server, I have created a new web app for this and extended it. so not I have 2 separate sites with different port numbers. I will use one for internet and another fot intranet access.

Hope that made sense.

So my questions are:

1. For internet facing site, do I use the extended site or the default main site? Does it matter?

2. It seems that the new front-end server does not actually host the sites. They are hosted on the internal server? Why is that? e.g. If I stop web application on the new front-end server, I am still able to see the website. But if I stop it on the internal front-end server, I am not able to browse the site.

So what is the use of the 2nd front-end server in DMZ?

3. If I want to implement SSL, will I need to install it front-end in DMZ or internal front-end server?

Thanks for you help,

SQL Server Installation error. setup.rll

Hi, I am coming to you folks for some help on this issue that has been baffling me. Installing SQL Server 2008 R2 on a Windows Server 2008 R2 generates the same error every time ( "SQL Server 2008R2\Resouces\1033\Setup.rll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error tryinstalling the program again using the original installation media." Then when I click on OK (From the error box) I get the following message: SQL Server MEdia does not support the language of the OS or doewn't have an ENU lcalized files. Use the matching language specific SQL. I am using a full version of both Windows Server and SQL Server.  

SQL Server Express 2008 Setup fails. Support Rule "Restart Computer" Failed

Hi, I have been trying to install SQL Server Express for most of the day now without any luck.  Whatever I do setup fails at the stage of Setup Support Rules, Rule "Restart Computer" - Failed.  Needles to say I have restarted (several times!) and I have tried downloading  and installing the "Advanced", "Tools" and "Basic" versions, all give the same error.  Trying a repair does the same.  I have been searching the net for an answer without success, any help would be MUCH appreciated. Further info: I am trying to install a stand-alone installation on to a single PC running under XP SP 3 with .NET 3.5 SP1 installed.  The PC did have some earler versions of SQL server installed but I (?hopefully?) removed all of these through Control Panel.  Before trying the first SQL install I installed Windows installer 4.5 and PowerShell 1.0 as per the Microsoft Instructions. Running SQL Server Configuration Manager results in an error (MMC could not create the snap-in. The snap in might not have been installed correctly).  A directory structure for SQL server exists in "Program Files".  Services MSC shows SQL Server (SQLEXPRESS) as Automatic Statup (not running).  Trying to start this manually gives error 14001: "application configuration incorrect - re-install to fix" .......... Which is precisely what I'm trying to do.........:(

How to setup windows server 2008 to enable socket communication?

I wrote a simple socket program, which listens to the 82 port, then receives and sends data through it. I tested the program on my local machine and it works fine, but after I published the program onto my windows server 2008, it does not work anymore. I guess it should be the firewall causing the problem, so I added rules to allow 82 port for both in and out bound, and I also add my application to the allowed program list for passing firewall, but still doesn't work, how could I solve it?   The windows server 2008 machine has a public network IP address, while my workstation is in a local network without public IP address, I connect to server 2008 through a router which has a public IP address. Is that the problem?   thanks! Regards! directfriends.net

Where is System.Web.Extensions.dll now? Fails on remote hosted server.

I've read all the notes about how from RC2 to ajax.net the name space has changed. "The core ASP.NET AJAX assembly has been changed from Microsoft.Web.Extensions.dll to System.Web.Extensions.dll. In addition, the namespace has changed from Microsoft.Web.* to System.Web.*. For some reason, my app runs on my local machine but when I copy it to a remote server (that does not have the ajax updated installed) it fails.  How can I get an IIS installation to work?  Am I missing a dll that I can push up to the remote server?  I can't run the install on the remote machine becasue it's a hosted server. Thanks

How to setup port forwarding for SharePoint server on home network

I have a SharePoint 2010 server running on my home network.  I want to be able to access the server from the internet and edit pages, create sites etc.  The web applications is running on a specific port (1234) not port 80. I've configured my router to forward port 1234 to the server's IP address and I can access the site fine from the internet using the routers IP address and adding the port number.  Viewing the site works fine but the problem is when I try to access a page in the _layouts folder for any of the sub sites I get a "File not found" error.  Also, if I go to a sub site and create a new site (no _layouts page required) it works but the new site is created directly under the root and not the sub site. It seems that the port forwarding from the router is messing up the context for the _layouts folder.  Is there any way around this? Thanks.

Testing setup of SQL Server 2008 R2 developer

The "Windows Package Manager" has the error "Operation failed with 0x80070643" and "Fatal error during installation." I have tried a few basic approaches to the installation problem, including downloading the ISO image to a different computer.  I have burned the ISO image onto four different DVDs using different media and two computers but only succeeded in verifying the burned media is Ok.  I have verified the SHA1 key with the two installation ISO images that were downloaded.  I have tried repairing the installation, but that generated a different kind of error message, "Error 1316.A network error occurred while attempting to read from the file E:\1033_ENU_LP\x64\setup\SSCERuntime_x86-enu.msi".  And then there is the "SQL Server 2008 R2 Setup has stopped working" message indicating "Windows is checking for a solution to the problem...". How fatal are the errors being encountered?  Is everything Ok?  How can I test that SQL Server 2008 R2 is fully functional?  T.69.72.
