Installation of Server Admin "Fabulous 40" Templates -
I saw a new feature appear after the templates were installed by our farm administrator. I didn't see anything in the documentation about it, but it seems like I should activate it.
Should I activate the "Fields and Content Types for the Windows SharePoint Services Application Templates" feature?
Are there any drawbacks?
Any other words of wisdom?
I just installed MOSS SP2 and ran the config wizard on the server.
I am facing issue with our farm. Found that "Windows SharePoint Services Web Application" is in a problem.
I tried below commands:-
stsadm -o provisionservice -action stop -servicetype spwebservice -servicename ""
stsadm -o provisionservice -action start -servicetype spwebservice -servicename ""
But getting error:- Provision of service failed. Additional information: 1387.
Checked eventvwr and found below error log:-
Event Type: Error
Event Source: Windows SharePoint Services 3
Event Category: Topology
Event ID: 7034
Time: 5:16:10 AM
An attempt to start/stop instance of service Windows SharePoint Services Web Application on server <servername> did not succeed. Re-run the action via UI or command line on the specified server.
None of the sites are working and I cannot see anything in the IIS folder nor in the IIS manager. All application folders are missing. But, I can see all the sites & Content databasesin the Central Admin.
Can someone please help?
Does microsoft provides any study materials for below certification?

Windows SharePoint Services helps improve collaboration and workflow while protecting documents and intellectual property. But one feature is conspicuously missing - an easy way to back up and restore deleted files from document libraries. In this article, the authors take advantage of the extensibility of WSS and its server-side and client-side object models to build a restore feature that works like the Recycle Bin in Windows Explorer.

Microsoft Office SharePoint Portal Server 2003, which is part of the Office System, lets you create and manage virtual servers, site collections, sites, workspaces, and users. You can also use the Windows SharePoint Services object model to design and implement user-targeted applications. In the second part of a two part series, the authors take a look at the WSS and SPS object models, Web Part Page anatomy, creating and deploying Web Parts, and Web Part security. They also discuss Web Part infrastructure and how to create custom Web Parts.

I need a detailed instruction on how to upgrade From Upgrading from Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 (SBS 2003 ) to SharePoint Foundation 2010.
Background of the case:
I have all my databases (STS-database and STS_Config) saved but, I forgot to save my Virtual Site )Companyweb site) and I mistakenly re-installed IIS on the SBS 2003, hence I lost the companyweb site. Is this an issue to migrate to Sharepoint foundation
2010. The Sharepoint foundation 2010 is running on a Microsoft HyperV Server 2008 R2
Also, I have created a Virtual 2003 SRV ENT with Sharepoint Services 3.0 running on it. I also have attached my Databases STS_Database and STS_Config)... how do I get it working like a regular website. I have modified the CNAME record to reflect the new server...
http://companyweb - it take me to the new site but it loads a blank page. I did create a new CompanyWeb Virtual site on the VHD 2003 server.
Your help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your prompt response. Nelson
