Brand new newbie with some set up questions.

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

Hi All,

Please bear with with me as I'm coming into this pretty much blind. We are setting up to implement SharePoint 2010 in our organization. The setup we are going with is as follows:

Database server running Server 2008, SQL 2008

App server running Server 2008

Front end web server running Server 2008

Now for a few questions:

1. The central administration site is running on the database server. Is this OK or should it be on the app server or does it matter?

2. Since my workstation is only a 32 bit machine, I currently have Visual Studio 2010 on the app server. OK to leave it there or should I upgrade to a 64 bit system on my workstation to remove VS from the server farm?

3. Any recommendations for good online tutorials for site development?

ROWGUID in Merger Replication - Newbie questions


I am a newbie in MS SQL Replication. This is long story for your BlackBerry. I hope you can read and understand my story below.



Publisher: Windows XP & MS SQL 2008 Standard, Customer maintenances EXE Application.

Subscribe: Window XP & MS SQL 2008 Express, Customer maintenances EXE Application.

  I only have Customer maintenances EXE file and I have no application source code.

  Both publisher and subscribe CUSTOMER table will be update by different people and different location.


Problem: for example

In publisher, Table Customer have 3 clients Mr. A, Mr. B, Mr. C.

In subscribe, Table Customer have 2 clients Mr. A, Mr. D


As you know a ROWGUID will add to the tables in merger replication. After the first synchronization, then I execute the EXE application to reads the Customer table, doing some add or delete customer to tables, then the program hang.

Frequently Asked Questions - SQL Server Data Types

This is good and precise introduction and Frequently Asked Questions - SQL Server Data Types

connection string question from a newbie


when publishing  in the webmatrix dialogue it asks for "destination connection string" for my "database.mdf"

I was not sure what it was so I pasted this from my web.config file :

Data Source=.\SQLEXPRESS;AttachDbFilename=|DataDirectory|\database.mdf;Integrated Security=True;User Instance=True

it all published ok, but wont run, so I guess it has somthing to do with this connection string or some kind of configuration issue.

My question is this, What should go in the field for "Destination connection string"

Linq qry with order by basic questions


I have never tried a group by with linq, now I do and I'm stuck.

I try to convert this sql statement to its linq counterpart :

SELECT COUNT(tb_Mailer_Smses.Id) AS [cnt], tb_Mailer_mailing.Id As [Id]
,SUM( CASE WHEN tb_Mailer_smses.DLRStatus = 200 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) As [Delivered]
FROM tb_Mailer_mailing INNER JOIN
tb_Mailer_Smses ON tb_Mailer_mailing.Id = tb_Mailer_Smses.MailingId
WHERE tb_Mailer_mailing.ApplicationId = 1
GROUP BY tb_Mailer_mailing.Id

Is there some one who can me show me the convertion process ?

Questions about getter and setter


I created a getter and Setter in Visual Basic. I have some questions though. Please look at the code below.
Here are my questions.

A.) At line 1 below, should "pieces" be declared as Private?
B.) In the IDE at lines 4 and 7 the IDE keeps changing those variables to uppercase so that the property name "Pieces" is the
    same as the variable name "pieces".Should I instead define the integer pieces with an underscore: _pieces ?
That is the only way I can get around the IDE forcing the variable to become uppercase.


1  Dim pieces As Integer

2  Public Property Pieces() As String
3  Get

4  Return pieces
5  End Get

6 Set (ByVal values As String)
7   pieces=value
8 End Set
9 End Property

Total newbie question: Calling jQuery in an UpdatePanel?



Please forgive this ignorant question - I've used ASP.NET AJAX a good deal but I'm new to jQuery.  Specifically, is it possible to call or create jQuery events on the fly via an UpdatePanel?  For example, calling a jQuery modal or animating a Label (or <div> contained Literal), etc.

If anyone has any advice or could point me to some easy tutorials on mixing ASP.NET AJAX and jQuery, I'd greatly appreciate it. 



[newbie] How to return a data record from a webservice (wsdl)?



vs2010, .NET 4.0

I have a webmethod which I want to return a data record (for example: name, surename, address, age, zip etc)

I wonder how to accomplish this. I think the solution is about creating an object which contains all the records serialized. And then the webmethod returns this serialized object. I'm not 100% sure how to accomplish this, if some of you good provide me with some tips, tutorial or link to an article explaining it, that would be great

Redirect to Security Questions if Site accessed from unrecognized computer?


I'm fairly new to ASP.NET and i'm using the Membership Provider.  I have the need to do similar to some banking sites. Baically I need to track "authorized" computers/ip's for a user.  If the user accesses the site form a recognized Computer/IP then the user is allowed into the app after successful login.  If the computer/IP is not recognized I need to redirect them to a screen to answer the security question setup in fhte Membership Provider.

Has anyone done anything like this or can anyone point me to any examples?  I did a search, but can't seem to find anything.

My idea is to maintain a list of authorized computers/IP addresses and check them on initial login.  If the IP address isn't found I can redirect them to the questions.  My concern is that they are then actually authenticated and could enter any of the site URL's as an authenticated user.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

2. Is there any problems I should be aware of like the problems(yet manual fixble) with  using Cascading in EF 4 , MVC 2, SQL 2005.


Thanks :)
