Restore-SPSite in extended web application.....

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

I tried to restore a site collection from my production farm to my test farm. It was pretty straightforward and completed without errors.

The powershell command I ran to back up the site collection followed this syntax:

Backup-SPSite http://internet-staging/ -Path <file path/filename.bak>

The powershell command I ran to restore the site collection followed this syntax:

Restore-SPSite -Identity http://internet-staging -Path <file path/filename.bak> -Force

The site collection was created with 'internet-staging" as a host headre and the web application was extended to the host header "internet"

I see on my test farm's WFE that the "internet" site no longer exists in IIS ....

What did I do wrong and how do I fix? Should I have used the '-Identity flag during the restore?

Multi form Application - Restore, minimize, maximize

Hello, I have a Windows forms application with 4 forms. Only one of the forms is visible at a time. When I maximize/ resize/ reposition Form1 into State1, and then switch to Form2, Form2 is in State2. I would like to see Form2 in State1 -- that is, after switching to the second form, it should be of the same size and at the same position as the first form. Can somebody please suggest the best way for doing this?

Extended application: how do I specify a separate landing page for Extranet users?

This is the current scenario: http://intra - Normal internal intra. http://intra.foo.fi - Accessible through the firewall. This address extends the http://intra SharePoint application. This is the extranet. I.e. both addresses links to the same location essentially. Now our customer suddenly notified that they'd like to have a separate landing page for users arriving to the http://intra.foo.fi address (extranet users). How would you proceed in making a separate landing page?

Is there a way to restart that job?


SPSite - The Web application at
could not be found.

I'm trying to use SP object model from a web application and when I create a new instance of SPSite I get this error:

The Web application at <address> could not be found. Verify that you have typed the URL correctly. If the URL should be serving existing content, the system administrator may need to add a new request URL mapping to the intended application.

I've tried loading the SPSite using the server name, server IP address or localhost, but in each case I get this error.
The web application is run from the SP server.

Search Services Application error. Can I restore to default? Or other ideas?



I posted an question but I think I may have put it in the wrong forum. 

When trying to create a new Search Services Application (after deleting old one) I get the following error:

An unhandled exception occurred in the user interface.Exception Information: Some or all identity references could not be translated.

This is the only application that gives me an error.

Help is Greatly appreciated!!

Thank you,

Microsoft's Collaborative Application Markup Language (CAML) Loop

discovered an interesting error recently while working with Microsoft's Collaborative Application Markup Language (CAML) that, surprisingly, had received no ink. Partly what surprises me about this is that the error may require you to rewrite large sections of your code if you haven't previously considered this SharePoint limitation. I'll start with some context, but first of all the error is:

Integrating a Legacy Web Application in SharePoint

This month we will continue with the theme of deploying Microsoft's SharePoint as a company intranet by describing a method for integrating a legacy Web application inside a SharePoint site.

In many companies the intranet site is not just a home page with announcements. It houses Web applications used by many different departments. In last month's article, I built a page to search the employee table in Northwind (the sample database included in Microsoft's SQL Server). This month, I will move the Web pages used to add/remove records from the table into the SharePoint intranet.

MVC architecture in ASP.Net using C# and Microsoft Data Access Application block

The Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern separates the modeling of the domain, the presentation, and the actions based on user input into three separate classes [Burbeck92]:

Model. The model manages the behavior and data of the application domain, responds to requests for information about its state (usually from the view), and responds to instructions to change state (usually from the controller).

View. The view manages the display of information.

Controller. The controller interprets the mouse and keyboard inputs from the user, informing the model and/or the view to change as appropriate.

High-Performance .NET Application Development & Architecture

It has always been a goal of project architects to plan an effective strategy from the ground up in regards to an new application. All relevant factors are taken into consideration with respect to the application, from its design and layout to a functional website infrastructure. Pre-.NET strategies and design guidelines still effective now were developed with Microsoft's DNA (Distributed interNet Application) platform. This model successfully served the purpose of architecting N(any number of)-Tier (levels) applications. In its basic sense, as in most robust, distributed applications, you'll architect 3 main layers or Tiers: presentation, business rules and data access.

Application architecture in asp .net

Application Architecture is the most important process of developing a good application. Some people tends to jump into coding without any architecture laid. Later we see those people changing the architecture and finally the application had to be developed from the scratch with the correct architecture.

In this article I will describe some details about how you can improve the architecture of you application. This article is targeted to the beginner's audience.

Improving Application Performance in .Net

Application performance has always been a concern for Web Application developers. This article contains guidelines and tips for maximizing application performance in ASP.NET.

Logic behind N -Tier Application Development

In the arena of application development, developers all over the world use various programming languages, technical processes, and technical tools. While using number of technical & non technical elements the processes or methods become complex, for simplification of the application development process, developers use various techniques such as dividing the application architecture into layers or parts. In the professional & technical language this separation or division process is called N-Tier Application Development process, where "N" stands for number and "tire" stands for layers or parts.

How to create 3 tier application using LINQ

As you know that in 3 tier architecture there are three layers

User interface layer. (Is our Form in Windows application and .aspx page in Web application)
Data Access layer. (Which provides interface between Business logic layer and Database)
Business Logic layer.(Which stores your application logic)

Using Lightbox in an ASP.NET Application

The article describes Lightbox as, "... a simple, unobtrusive script used to overlay images on the current page." It delivers a nice, professional looking method for displaying images as overlays through the use of hyperlinks.

Solidify Your C# Application Architecture with Design Patterns

design pattern can solve many problems by providing a framework for building an application. Design patterns, which make the design process cleaner and more efficient, are especially well-suited for use in C# development because it is an object-oriented language. Existing design patterns make good templates for your objects, allowing you to build software faster. This article describes several popular design patterns you can use in your own applications, including the singleton, the decorator, the composite, and the state classes, which can improve the extensibility of your applications and the reuse of your objects.

Application Architecture in Windows Forms 2.0

Applications have special support in Windows Forms. For starters, you can manage and tailor your application's lifetime, and, when the work flow is disrupted by an unhandled exception, you can choose from several methods of response. Then, there are several application models that you can employ, including Single Document Interface (SDI) and Multiple Document Interface (MDI) applications, each of which can support either multiple-instance or single-instance mode, the former the VS05 default and the latter requiring special consideration. All applications, however, can discover and use a wide variety of information about the system and environment they execute in.
