Impact of changing backend and Front End Server hostnames and IP addresses on Sharepoint site

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 14, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#
We have a migration scheduled for our Datawarehousing application. We use Sharepoint 2007. As a part of the migration activity, the hostname and the IP addresses of the backend sqlserver (on which Sharepoint administration and Configuration databases are hosted)  and the frontend server(Which hosts the Sharepoint Site) will be changed. Is is advisable? What precautions do we need to take in this migration? Could you provide any documentation with respect to changes to be done in case of Server hostname change.

Changing an authentication of SharePoint site from SQL-FBA to Active Directory

Hi,      We are using MOSS 2007. I have customized a web application using Custom web part, features and ASPX pages. we have configured SQL-Form based Authentication for this site. I have also used FBA user management functionality from Codeplex. I have created some groups and my application (custom aspx page) is referencing these groups to send an email to specific person as per his role for certail events.        I have a requirement to migrate this set up on other server and change the authentication from SQL-FBA to Active Directory. So if I have to change the Authentication from SQL-FBA to AD then what are the steps I have to follow to make this happen?      I would appreciate any help on this. Thanks, Patav    

Create a Site template with subsites in Sharepoint Server 2010

Hi, I'm with my first SharePoint project, and we are using server 2010 as a Document Management system. The thing is our company has about 300 customers, and we have to create 300 site collections, 1 per customer.  For each site collection, I use the blank site template, and it's very simple page, as I just need a document library in the home page, and then I need to create a subsite called "cases" and the inside profiles, the users create a document library for each case. For subsite I mean, I create a new site and I choose the option to share the top menu, so basically the site has 2 tabs. So basically what I need is a template that has 2 tabs, Home and Cases. Home with a document library in home and Cases empty. Is there a simple way to achieve this? I guess maybe I have to edit some XML files to create a Site Template. If this is the case, can someone point me to the right documentation. Second, I need to create a Visual Basic project so that the final user has a form, and he just inputs the Customer Name and the code must automatically create a new site with the template I metioned before. I guess that once I have the template this won't be very hard to achieve, as I have seen this SPSite class. The question is, can I have the template with the 2 tabs, o maybe I have to use 2 templates, and write code to create the home site and the Cases Subsite.. Ple

Purpose of initial "site" in SharePoint Server 2010 Express Install

I’m installing Search Server 2010 Express using “Farm” mode. After the SharePoint Configuration Wizard completes, and selecting  the SharePoint config wizard, one needs to create a website. What is that site intended for? Is it for the Search Center itself? (If so, then I better select the Enterprise – “Basic Search Center" template. If it is intended for a "normal" top level site, then I will create a new Search site in its own web app). TIA, Barkingdog

We have a Sharepoint 2007 site collection roughly 36 GB in size and have been having problems moving the site to a new server farm (Also 2007). We are trying the Sharepoint backup and restore method, but I understand that this method is not recommended for sites over 5GB.

Can't deploy SharePoint solution even after changing Site Url property



I've developed a SharePoint 2010 solution in VS2010 and i've also deployed it on my site collection - everything works perfect, fine!

But when I try to deploy the same solution in another site collection (on local server not remote) by changing Site Url property of the solution to my new site collection, VS is not deploying the solution. I'm getting the following error:


Error 102 Error occurred in deployment step 'Recycle IIS Application Pool': Cannot connect to the SharePoint site: http://newsiteurl/. Make sure that this is a valid URL and the SharePoint site is running on the local computer. If you moved this project to a new computer or if the URL of the SharePoint site has changed since you created the project, update the Site URL property of the project.


I've packaged the solution and deployed it manually, it's working fine but i don't understand why i'm not able to deploy the solution on a different site collection on the same machine??

Does anyone else has experienced the same issue? 



Thanks & Regards,


SharePoint / Project Server 2010 Unable to edit a HTTPS site in SharePoint designer 32 bit



I posted this thread below under a different forum and was requested to move.  Below is our current problem and the feedback that was given.

We currently have a project server 2010 site with several workspaces associated with it.  When trying to edit the site (either from choosing edit is designer from the site actions or from trying to open from within the designer) a dialog appears asking to choose a certificate for the site.domain.com.

The certificate issued by the site is a GeoTrust certificate and checks ok when browsing the site in IE.  This Windows security dialog also appears when trying to export to excel on the same site.

Any thoughts to what we are missing?

SharePoint Server 2010 Site Suddenly Dissapeared - 404 Error


I created a site in a brand new SharePoint Server 2010 environment.  Now when I browse to the site, I get a 404 error.  The site has suddenly vanished. The link to the site still remains in SharePoint, but it's not there!  I tried running the SP Prod and Tech Config Wizard, rebooting, etc...

No one is even using this environment.

Any ideas?

Did anyone at Microsoft test SharePoint Server or Project Server before launch?  This 2010 release is so full of bugs.  Sorry to rant.

Programmatically activate SharePoint Server Enterprise Site Collection features


As my solution requires the enterprise features I'm required to activate them. Right now I'm doing it manually through "site settings -> site collection features", but I want to do it automatically when activating an other part of my solution. I've used PowerShell to see the difference for "Get-SPFeature -site myurl" before and after activating the enterprise feature by hand, but there're at least 10 site collection features being activated through this one click step.

Is there a list of features which are part of the SharePoint Server Enterprise Site Collection features or is there an easier way to activate them all at a time instead of doing it one by one programmatically.
