Sharepoint alerts not working on Production

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#

Hi all,

When i am intitating an alert, a mail is sent to the user that alert has been created to this list/library. But when i change anything in the item then no mail is sent to user who is configured to that alert.

Note: I have configured alert for all the changes and immediate alerts.

I have checked the timer job in central admin, they also are present in the timer job definitions.

Do i need to do anything else to get the alert message. Please advice....

Working with SharePoint document libraries

Document libraries are collections of files that you can share with team members on a Web based on Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services. For example, you can create a library of common documents for a project, and team members can use their Web browsers to find the files, read them, and make comments. Users with Microsoft Office 2003 can check out and edit the files as if they resided on a local or network drive.

By default, your team Web site comes with a built-in document library named Shared Documents, which is listed on the Quick Launch bar as well as on the Documents and Lists page.

Sharepoint 2007 Search Not Working


I am pulling my hair out guys. I have tried everything i could find from this site and all other sites but have not been successful. No matter what i do I cannot get the search to work. We are using SharePoint 2007 and the search had been fine but our security team performed some patches and now I’m stuck with a dead search feature.

Any help would be immensely appreciated.

Things I have tried but did not resolve the problem:

1. Check all accounts and passwords

2. Run the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard

3. Reboot server reset IIS

4. Try to rebuild the index but that also fails

5. Check the Content Access Account

Office Sharepoint Server Search not working but Windows Server Search is.

I am having an annoying Issue with the Sharepoint 2007 Enterprise search functionality. I cannot get the Search Centre to work, the out of the box webparts crash the page except the Searchbox when the others are closed. The event viewer shows up numerous Errors (Office Sharepoint Server - EventID 7080) returns with and the same when trying to add a search related web part (e.g. core.results, federated etc). EventID 6398 - Timer is a regular as is 7080. Details below.

A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: SQL Network Interfaces, error: 26 - Error Locating Server/Instance Specified).

Remote connections are connected, I am not 100% on the Instance name, (how would I go about checking this?)

Also I cannot access the link to SharedServices1 - Open Shared Services Admin site (not clickable), guess it's permissions but I seem to have full site permissions, I think I need SSP-Admin to make more edits to the Search, maybe this is related :s

Both Search Servers are runnig, I have tried everything I can think of to fix this and allow the Search Centre to work.

I am running Sharepoint 2007 on SQL Server 2008.

 SSRS reports are working success fully in SharePoint using above topology, The issue is through SharePoint library when i am trying to access report builder reports the client is installing, after enter the credentials it is not connecting to server and am getting the following error "Unable to connecting server at 'http://servername/Reports/Forms/AllItems.aspx'  please use different url

The above issue on production only.

SharePoint Designer: insert custom list not working anymore



Suddenly sharepoint designer decided today that it doesn't want to insert a custom list form anymore...
To be more specific, it doesn't work anymore in a site that uses the Microsoft budgeting and tracking template. In a website that uses an out of the box template, it still works.

It did work before, because I did it in other websites using the same template (it's broken there as well now).

Why oh why does SharePoint refuse to do this now?
I searched google and here on the forums, but all I could find was some issues after installing SP1, but we did that already long time ago and it was still working after that. I checked with our infrastructure guys and they didn't install new updates they say.

I also tried the solutions listed here: http://blogs.msdn.com/spdsupport/archive/2008/07/03/how-to-fix-custom-list-forms-will-not-insert-or-show-up-on-the-design-surface-of-sharepoint-designer.aspx
But they don't fix the problem.

So my problem is, I can go to Insert > SharePoint Controls > Custom List Form
I pick my list, content type and form type, I hit OK and... nothing happens.

Discussion board template of SharePoint 2007 not working properly


Use case 1 – Discussion board to suggest change to documents

 User adds a suggestion. The discussion board needs fields like module name, document name, section name and reason for a change etc.


 Problem 1 – When I try to add fields to the discussion board – When a user wants to post a reply to a suggestion, user screen shows the new item form and all fields instead of just a reply or comment field. Need help how can I ensue user only sees reply or comment field?


 Problem 2 – If I make these changes in the discussion board template through SharePoint designer 2007 and later if we plan to upgrade to SP 2010. Do I have to redo the changes I did on old discussion board or will upgrade take care of migration of the changes to new discussion board template available with SP 2010? 




Deploying custom Web Parts on SharePoint 2007 production server

I would like to develop a custom SharePoint 2007 Web Part for a client. Currently I'm using Visual Studio to deploy my solution to a test environment (since it's a SharePoint Project I choose just Build -> Deploy from the menu). What are the appropriate steps to deploy it to the production server?

I'd like keep it simple and safe (i.e. use the principle of least privilege). Therefore (if possible) avoid using stsadm, achieve this through web interface, or avoid using administrative rights.

Also, can I specify the scope of my Web Part, i.e. choose on which Web Application or Site Collection will it be installed?

Anyone got the SharePoint List Adapter working with SQL 2005?

Like the authors of some other similar posts, I cannot see the SharePoint list dataflow source and destination options after installing SharePointListAdaptersSetupForSqlServer2005.msi from codeplex.  The options do not appear in the SSIS Data Flow items tab within the "Choose Toolbox Items".  Anyone manage to figure this out? If i install it on my dev laptop - I get these options and can add them to my toolbox - however I have both SQL Server 2005 and 2008 on this machine.   On my 64 bit server however I only have SQL 2005 and nothing! I would love to use this as the last time i wrote a web service extraction is was a very unpleasant few days of my life. Ritchie

Microsoft Word hyperlinks not working consistently in Sharepoint

I'm running into an issue with some Word hyperlinks.  I have a Word document (with embedded hyperlinks) uploaded to a document library.  If I go into the library and click on the document, the hyperlinks work as intended (which is to say that the embedded hyperlinks open up a .pdf in a NEW window). However, on my home page, I have a link to the Word document directly (not to the library, to the actual file).  If I use this link, then the embedded hyperlinks open the .pdf in the SAME window. Part of the issue seems to be that when I open the document from within the library, it opens it with what I'll call a Word emulator whereas if I follow the link from the home page, it opens it with a regular web browser.  Is there a way to get the link from the home page to also use this emulator?  Alternatively, are there any other solutions?  I really need to be able to use the home page link method.

FullTextQuery not working after upgrade to SharePoint 2010

I have a function   Public Function QueryEx(ByVal webUrl As String, ByVal queryXml As String) As DataSet     Dim ds As DataSet = Nothing   Try   Dim myCredentials As NetworkCredential = CredentialCache.DefaultNetworkCredentials sws =   New SearchService.QueryService sws.Url = webUrl &   "/" & webServiceName   CType(sws, SearchService.QueryService).QueryEx(queryXml)     Catch ex As Exception lblDebug.Text =   "QueryEx: " & ex.Message pnlError.Visible =   True ds = Nothing   Finally sws.Dispose()   End Try   Return ds     End Function and passed the following full text query wrapped in the appropriate xml SELECT FileExtension, Filename, EffectiveDate, Title, Author, State, PolicyType, ApplicationType, PolicyNumber, ClientCode, CreatedBy, Created, ModifiedBy, LastModifiedTime, Path FROM portal..scope() WHERE ("SCOPE" = 'MyDeptScope') AND "IsDocument" = 1  AND ("Filename" LIKE 'Sub%') this worked in SharePoint 2007. We upgraded to SharePoint 2010.  I have all the managed properties setup the same on both versions.  I had to modify the query to get past one error I was receiving to SELECT FileExtension, Filename, EffectiveDate, Title, Author, State, PolicyType, ApplicationType, Pol

SharePoint Search not working on one site collection

I am running into some weird behavior with how SharePoint is crawling site/list data.  Let's say our main intranet site is http://www.intranet.com: Most of our older sites are setup with URLs like http://www.intranet.com/sites/sitename .  Crawling is working fine on these sites and I can execute a search and find all of the results I would expect.  At some point recently (before I joined this firm), they made a decision that all new sites would have the URL http://www.intranet.com/SiteDirectory/sitename .  Any sites which fall into this bucket are not being crawled, it would seem. If I check Central Adman>Shared Services>Search Administration, I can see that the first content source being crawled is http://www.intranet.com so I would imagine this crawl should pick up anything under /SiteDirectory/ but it is not.  I also checked the Crawl Settings on this page and it is set to "Crawl everything under the hostname for each start address".  Lastly, I see that there were only 21 errors in the last full crawl but none of these errors apply to a /SiteDirectory/ site. In short, what could be causing the crawl to apparently skip all of the sites within /SiteDirectory/ and how can this best be fixed?
