WFE and Application Server in sharepoint

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 31, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hello, Want to know the differences between WFE and Application server? According to my knowledge,WFE for handling user requests?(ok..fine,where can I find WFE or more than 1 WFE?) and Application Server for Excel Services,Search,index server etc But the url or the link or any diagram so I can easily guess what is wfe and why some times we can use more WFEs and what is an application sever and why we can use more than 1 Applicaion server? 1)I know a web application like http://server:5000/sites/MySiteName .Can we called it as an application server? Like any url for WFE? 2)Is there any command or program code to know how many servers (Front-end Servers,Application Servers,Database Servers,Index Servers) etc in a FARM Please clarify all the above without missing any Thanks in Advance

I installed a Project Server 2007 in a 3 server structure (all Win 2003 sp2; one for App server hosting Central Admin, Project Server service & Search service; one for web server; one for database server).  They are only in the same domain and I use the same network account for the installation as well as the WSS service account.  The same network are local admin for those 3 servers. All installation & patches seem ok (at least I don't get error messages) until I attempt to create my first Web Application.  After I filled out the web appliction and try to click OK, the page does not change and i saw the java error at the right bottom corner from my IE browser (version 6).

Passing credentials from Sharepoint application to Reporting Server

Hi, Think of an environment where SSRS is deployed in share point integrated mode. There is a sharepoint application which is using user authentication (not windows authentication) for validating the login credentials of users using the application. There are some reports presented as web parts in the sharepoint application. Now, how should the user credentials be passed from Sharepoint application to Reporting services and how should they be validated? How the user credentials from sharepoint to be passed to report server and validate the permissions before showing up the report? Please let me know.  Phani Note: Please mark the post as answered if it answers your question.

Server Error in '/' Application on a personalised sharepoint page



I have a login to a sharepoint subsite where the default.aspx has been modified to show a personalised page. Unfortunatley it is now showing an error relating to a datasource for a report. This has been fixed but the personalized page stillthrows an error on login so I cannot get to the settings to remove the problem.


Is it possible to remove the personalised page via the back end? Either via the sharepoint database or by Sharepoint Desiginer.


Thank you.

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.

SharePoint Application and Site Pages - Part 1 of 2

In this first part of the two part series, Steven covers the differences between Site and Application pages in SharePoint 2007, why each may be used in various circumstances, and prepares for the construction of a menu located application page. After a brief introduction he examines the concept of Site Pages and Application Pages separately in detail with supported screenshots.

SharePoint Application and Site Pages - Part 2 of 2

As the second article in a two part series, Steven examines the attributes and details of a SharePoint 2007 application page, including the construction and feature deployment of the same page based project. Since this is a WSS level objective, as opposed to MOSS, you will not need MOSS to work with the code included in this project. Windows Server 2003, WSS, and Visual Studio 2005 are all that is needed, with no additional add-ons. He provides a detailed analysis of each step involved in the creation and deployment of the project.

Application Vs. Content Pages in SharePoint

SharePoint has two types of ASPX pages. One type is the application page, also known as a _layout page. The other type of ASPX page is a content page, also known as a site page. Each of these page types is stored in a different location in SharePoint. When developers create custom ASPX pages, they must decide on the page type.
