Cannot add SQL Server 2008 R2 Report items to SharePoint Server 2010 document library

Upgrading to SharePoint 2010 Foundation on SBS Server 2008

Hi all, I've just tried to install SharePoint Foundation on 2010 on Windows Small Business Server 2008 and whilst the literature I've found suggests that this is supported, I receive the following error: SharePoint 2010 Products cannot be installed in Stand-alone mode on a Domain Controller.  For more information on upgrading, see http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=975805. What's funny about the KB ID, is that it doesn't exist.  The pre-requisites for SharePoint 2010 Foundation installed OK and the SharePoint installer has detected that it will perform an in-place upgrade.  the STSADM -o preupgradecheck output is below. Any idea's?  It would be really great if we could start using the shared workspace and ribbon features that are inherent with SPF2010. Jason.  

Issues with updating Lists with Manager Names and User Profile Imports in SharePoint 2010 Server

I am having a curious problem with SharePoint 2010 Server. I have imported all the user profiles of our organization into SharePoint User Profile Service Application from our Active Directory. When the Manager name imports it comes in as domain/login. The organizational browser seems to work for MOST people, but not all. I believe this is contributing to my second problem, which is, I have setup a very simple workflow in SharePoint Designer that simply looks up the persons Manager, then places that information into a field called "Approval 1". After that it looks at Approval 1 and get the Manager name and populated "Approval 2" with that information, and so on. I have used an Impersonation Step as the Farm Administrator in the workflow and I have done it without the impersonation step. Both results in the same problem. When I enter my name into the list and run the workflow it runs beautifully give every manager up the chain to the top. However, if I put any other person's name in there it gives me the error "Workflow failed to get user profile for user: ____". I went to my supervisor's office and asked him to run the workflow. Using his login he had the exact same result--if my name was in there it worked great, otherwise, it gave an error. Any help with this strange error would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks

Can WEBDAV be disabled in Sharepoint 2010 on a Windows Server 2008 R2?

Hello, we had some issues with WEBDAV use with Sharepoint 2010 placed behind WEBSeal proxies. We decided to only use FPSE (front page server extensions) for an external access to this portal. I cannot find a way, how to disable WEBDAV, or how to force clients to only use FPSE with this portal. It is fair, to say, that we would like to make such configuration on a server side, rather then configure client computers. We are running Sharepoint 2010 on a Windows Server 2008R2 server (i.e. IIS 7.5) thank you in advance for help/ideas Roman Cernovsky

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?

Can I install SQL 2008 on a server running SQL 2005 to install Sharepoint 2010 Enterprise (Productio



Sharepoint 2010 Upgrade Question - A customer is currently running sharepoint 2007 on a 64bit windows 2003 OS with SQL 2005 sp2, they are looking to install/upgrade to Sharepoint 2010 and want to use the current SQL server,for the upgrade a new SharePoint 2010 environment will be built and for a short while they will have two instances of SharePoint running SP2007 and SP2010. The plan is to then manually migrate the data from SP2007 to SP2010 (ENT), the web and application servers will be newly built. From research I think they have three options

1) Upgrade the current SQL 2005(SP2) instance to SQL 2008 R2 standard.

2) Install a new instance of SQL 2008 R2 on the same server and have both SQL 2005 & SQL 2008 running on the same server (Is this an option? Will sharepoint happily run from a SQL server running two SQL instances, do I have to be careful regarding the installation and configuration, could I break the existing sharepoint farm doing this?)

3) Upgrade the current SQL server to SP3 and install a new instance of SQL 2005 SP3 and install SharePoint 2010 Enterprise here, again I have all the questions from point 2 above.

We are thinking of trying option 1, then 2, then 3, and obviously only moving to the next option if we come across a show stopper. H

SharePoint 2010 + SQL Server 2008 SP1 and R2


I have Sharepoint 2010 + Sql Server 20008 SP1 availabel on the server. I want to install Sql Server 2008 R2 also on the same server (side by side).

Will the installation effect the existing Sharepoint 2010 system? 

Which is a good option, have Sp1 and R2 side by side or upgrade to R2?

Windows 7/Server 2008 R2 + Office 2010 cannot connect to SharePoint 2010


I have a Windows 7 x64 machine, with Office 2010 x86 installed.  I also have (2) Server 2008 and (2) 2008 R2 machines with Office 2010 x86 installed on them. On all of these machines I can not connect to SharePoint 2010 using Office.  The following occurs:

  • From the browser, browse to a doc lib. 
  • Click on an Office document, select "Edit in Microsoft ..."
  • An "Open Document" dialogue box appears, indicating that "Some files can harm your computer. If the file information below looks suspicious, or you do not fully trust the source, do not open the file.  File Name: Whatever.docx  From: SPServer2010.  (This is the first clue that something is not working properly.  I don't think this would appear otherwise)
  • Click OK.
  • The document opens, but with a [Read-Only] in the title bar. 
  • If I click save, it tries to save to a default location on my desktop computer.

Another example of the problem:

  • Open an Office 2010 application. 
  • Click File>Open
  • In the Open dialogue box, type in the URL of a document lib on the server. 
  • The error message: You can't open this location using this program. Please try a different location.

Final example of the problem:

  • Click Upload Multiple

SharePoint 2010 Foundation - Standalone - SQL Server Express 2008 R2 - Moving databases to another d


Setting up a new install who will be using SharePoint Foundation 2010 in Standalone mode. They do not have SQL SERVER 2008 so need to utilize the Standalone option and the latest version of SQL Server 2008 Express R2. They are just getting started with SharePoint and it is unknown how much the technology will be embraced to afford to purchase SQL Server at this point. I wanted to get that explanation out of the way before everyone tells me the best practice of installing in Farm mode only! I realize the best practice but sometimes we have to roll with the punches because getting a client to begin using SharePoint on their current budget is better than never getting the chance to use it at all.

So SharePoint Foundation 2010 is installed with the default SQL Server 2008 R2 Express instance. Is there a procedure for moving the databases to a new drive? What is the default instance name that is created? I'm having a hard time locating that information in the documentation. I've done this before with WSS 3.0 without issue but wondered if there were any documents on moving the newest databases and what the default instance name is. Thank you in advance.
