Search Server 2010 Express - To Deploy Or Not To Deploy

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

We want to deploy (brand new deployment) on Search Server 2010 Express but I need to determine if SSE will be supported in the same manner as SPF?  In other words, will CU's and Service Packs be available for SSE as required? 

Currently I see CU's (KB 2475880 and KB 2459125) for SharePoint Foundation 2010 and a CU (KB 983319) for Search Server 2010 but nothing specifically for Search Server 2010 Express.  Is this product being maintained?

Can SharePoint Foundation CU's and Service Packs be applied to SSE installations to keep SSE up-to-date?

Any insight into this would be greatly appreciated,

Search Server Express 2010 - Access Denied when attempting to manage Search Service Application or P

I first noticed this error with the Search Service Application when I was no longer able to use the search portal, but have since noticed the issue with the PowerPoint Service Application.  When I navigate in Central Administration to either the "Farm Search Administration" or the "Manage service applications" pages and attempt to manage the "Search Service Application", I get this error: Error: Access Denied  Current User You are currently signed in as:  WHEELERS\MyUserName   Sign in as a different user    I have tried removing the service application and re-adding it, changing the application pool to running under an existing application pool as the farm administrator, as another application pool with the same identity as the primary web application, and as another application pool running under the SP-SearchService identity. The big recent change with SharePoint, aside from fixing the previous issue where I was incorrectly using CNAMEs with Kerberos, was to switch the main web application to claims authentication. That site correctly works with claims based authentication and Kerberos.

SharePoint Search Server 2010 Express returns no search results for non-admin users

This is going to sound crazy, but anyway... bare with me... I have a SharePoint Search Server 2010 Express (RTM) installed with a crawl account (call it sharepoint_crawl) which has full read permission to an entire site collection of 100,000 documents. I have logged in with this account to make sure it has read access to everything, and it does. I run a full crawl of all documents and allow it to finish. If I try and search the content for an extremely common term (i.e. 50,000+ hits) I get no results. However, if I log in with a site collection admin I do get search results. There are no indexing errors or query errors in either log files or event log. Everything looks like it is working correctly - just no results for non-admins Anyone tripped on this? I have recreated the crawl account and perform a full re-index with the same results. What gets me is that the crawl account does have read permission to the content it is indexing, the content is indexed correctly, but the crawl account cannot get results back. It is as if security-trimming is removing everything. Any ideas?

Visual Studio 2010 Lab Environment for Student to deploy to a IIS 7.5 web server with SQL 2008

Currently the environment I am trying to create is a teaching lab for Visual Studio 2010 and ASP.NET website development. The intent is to setup an environment where students can create a website with an attached database written with the assistance of Visual Studio 2010. When the website is completed they need to use one of the Visual Studio deploy technologies to upload the website to a locally run server (Windows 2008 R2 with IIS 7.5 running and SQL Server 2008.) I am responsible for setting up the correct deploy technology in Visual Studio as well as setting up the IIS 7.5 deployment server that is running the right version of SQL Server. I have already started this process and figured out how to configure a deployment package in visual studio and have it published on our local server. I am trying to get a very streamlined environment that does not require students have to configure a lot of SQL strings and IIS settings because this is not really what the teaching lab is all about. Just to let you know, we have had  this exact setup using Visual Studio 2008, Server 2003 with front page server extensions on IIS 6.0 and SQL Server Compact edition running on the server. My issue is that since it is now time to update everything there does not seem to be something comparable. Any help would be greatly appreciated. If someone has an idea of the 

Search Server 2010 Express databasename GUIDs

I installed SSE 2010 using the "Server Farm" option and default options. I note it created some 9 databases with names like: <normal name>_<GUID> I prefer not to have those GUIDs appear in the name.  It's easy enough to rename the sql databases but what has to be done on the SharePoint side to make it use the renamed databases ?     TIA, Barkingdog

Upgrading Foundation 2010 to Search Server Express


Hi there,

I can't find any conclusive articles/technet references on what the correct (best) way to get to a Search Server Express 2010 built on top of Foundation actually is.

I know I can install Search Server directly, but does this then limit the features of the resulting "foundation" aspects? Is it better to do a full install of Foundation and then an 'upgrade' to search server 2010 express?

Any links to an actual reference would be great!


how do I enable anonymous search in search server express 2010

I am crawling a local file share that has read permissions for NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE account. I have enabled anonymous access and now I am able to get to my search box without authentication. But when I actually search for something I get no results back. I am able to get results when using the administrator account. I have even created local account and that is also unable to see the results.

Sharepoint 2010 Foundation with Search Server Express


I have Sharepoint 2010 Foundation with Search Server Express installed. The Sharepoint was an upgrade from WSS v3 and search server express 2003.

After the upgrade whenever users search from the main site I get web part errors displayed on the search page. I think because it is trying to use the old search server express which is no longer installed.

Search Server Express 2010 is now installed and a Search Center web page can be viewed however when searching via the entire sites I site the web page with web part errors.

Any thoughts or any further information you require I can provide.

Sharepoint Foundation 2010 and Search Server Express


Can I get some clarification on a couple of points?


Firstly, what is the recommended installation path for SPFoundation and Search Server Express on the same server.  Do I just install SSE 2010?  Or SPF 2010 and then SSE 2010?

Secondly, when the two are installed together how do I add the a SSE 2010 search center link to my SPF 2010 site so I can search all crawled content?  I've created crawls of Exchange public folders and file shares but when I use the built-in site search box it's only returning content crawled from the local site and not anything from the other crawls.



how to deploy to server farm from visual studio 2010?


Server farm config is 4 servers: 2 wfe,1 app, 1 db.  NLB on WFE's. 

Deploy from VS 2010 to http://myspapp or http://myspsite I get this error in visual studio.

Error 2 Error occurred in deployment step 'Recycle IIS Application Pool': Cannot connect to the SharePoint site: http://myspapp/. 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.

On my dev machine deploy works fine.  Is it possible to deploy to a server farm from visual studio 2010 or do I have to use powershell commands?

Can a user with SQL express deploy a SSIS to a remote SQL server (how)


sql express does not have integration services.

dtutil does not work without integration services.  This is therefore not an option.

The deployment manifest needs dtutil to execute.  This is also not an option.

The documentation on microsoft states that a person can connect to remote integration services by editing the ini file and then connecting locally. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms137789.aspx.  Without integration service, one can not connect locally to integration services so using the transfer package of sql server is also not an option.

Also connecting remotely to an integration without editing the ini seems to require local admin rights on the target server.  This is a bit too much to ask.  (this is what I experimented let me know if you know the exact requirements)

Is there a possibility for a person with sql express, without local admin rights to the target server, to push his ssis to his sql server test instance?

How to deploy on a windows web 2008 dedicated server the VS 2010 ASP.NET simplest template ?

Integrating Sharepoint Foundation 2010 and Search Server Express

I've been searching for ways to do this but I haven't come up with anything.  Surely this is a very common need/want.  Basically I want to use Sharepoint Foundation 2010 but I would like to run Search Server Express in the same installation.  Additionally instead of going to a dedicated search page and then searching, I'd like to add the Search Server Express search functionality as a Web Part to the Sharepoint Foundation home page.  Is there any documented procedures to this?  If not how have you done it?

Deploy and update script file with custom ribbon tab to Sharepoint Server 2010


Hey everyone,

currently I'm building a custom tab for Sharepoint Server 2010 and at the moment I'm stuck on the following issue,
with the first debug deployment Visual Studio sends the .js file that provides some functions for the ribbon elements from Scripts folder in the VS project
to Sharepoint Server.
However, it won't apply any changes I did on the script afterwards to the file on the server.
So the effect is, that as soon as I do the next debug, the previous script is being used by Sharepoint and the new version, containing the new code, is left aside.

It seems to me as if Visual Studio would only deploy the .js file just once and then rely to this copy, maybe there are some configuration settings to make, but after hours of research, I still can't figure out where things do go wrong or what configuration to apply to update the script on the server.
I couldn't locate the file on hdd either, even searched the whole fs but the results showed only the new script file.

Any help on this would be very much appreciated, this issue drives me nuts and consumes plenty of time ;)

Workaround at the moment: each time the script is changed, set up new project... :D
