Publish Sharepoint Foundation Server to Internet

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 01, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hi guys, first of all I don't want exactly to publish SPF server to Internet, but place it in DMZ and make available from Internet. So I won't have any dedicated web server, only one server with MSSQL and SPF on it. Is there any practices to make it more secure? So far I'm only came up with form authentication... Any ideas or links are highly appreciated!

Sharepoint Foundation 2010 to Sharepoint Server 2010

Hi there, We have Sharepoint Foundation 2010 already installed on Windows Server 2008, which uses SQL Server 2008 R2 Express (64 bit). There are sites already created and Custom lists and workflows. We then purchased a Sharepoint Server 2010 license. Is there an easy way to upgrade our current sharepoint using the same Database (Content DB). How do I deploy this new Sharepoint (on top of the Foundation) Worst case scenario: I have to remove Sharepoint Foundation and then install the licensed "Sharepoint Server 2010" version Please advise

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.  

Visual Studio 2010 can't find the Sharepoint Foundation 2010 Server when compiliing, Standalone vs

I'm wondering if we installed Visual Studio correctly cos when we get into Visual Studio 2010 the "Deploy as a Farm Solution" is the only available button option and the "Deploy as a Sandbox Solution" is un-selectable, grayed out, assuming the "Sandbox" solution is the "Standalone" approach? So when we go to compile a Workflow, the error message says the Sharepoint Server is not found" Could this "Deploy as Farm Solution" be a problem when we were instructed to install Sharepoint 2010 Foundation as a "Standalone" install? in other words we're trying to find out why when we go to compile a Workflow in Visual Studio 2010 that it can't find the Sharepoint Server Step 3: Install SharePoint 2010 1.  To install SharePoint Server 2010 or SharePoint Foundation 2010, open a Command Prompt window, and then type the following at the command prompt: On the Choose the installation you want page, click Standalone to install everything on one developer workstation. Thanks very much for any suggestions, ideas or pointers! BobK

Team Foundation Server and WSS 3.0 SharePoint Service Search not visible

I am having issues with setting up SharePoint Search service on the TFS 2008 server WSS 3.0. The Windows SharePoint Service Search service doesn't appear in Central Administration>Operations>Services on Server page. Only the Central Administration, Windows SharePoint Services Incoming E-Mail, and Windows SharePoint Services Web Application appear. I have Windows SharePoint Service Search running through Services in Windows and still it doesn't appear on the page to configure it. The service account that this service running under has db_reader role access to the WSS_Content database and is a db_owner for the WSS_AdminContent and WSS_Config database as well as for the WSS_Search database. I have executed iisreset and even rebooted the server to no avail. The installation/set up of TFS was done prior to me join the team. It was a default set up with dual servers. The Event Logs show nothing out of the ordinary to help me troubleshoot the issue. Does anyone have any other suggestions I should try or other things I should be looking for? Thank you in advance, WillWill Piedmont

Cannot publish InfoPath 2010 form template to SharePoint Server 2010 RC

Hi all, I am MSFT in Vietnam. I created a SharePoint list using InfoPath 2010 RTM 64bit. After publishing it to SharePoint 2010 RC, I see an error message:  Click on button "Show Details" the message is The list schema does not match the schema of this form. Refresh the data source and publish the form again. When I create new item based on published SharePoint list, I can see plain form not browser enabled InfoPath form. I checked InfoPath Form Services, everything seems to be good. What should I do to publish SharePoint list from InfoPath 2010 to SharePoint 2010 as browser enabled form?

SharePoint AAM - Help - Publish Sharepoint with UAG to Internet and Intranet with Similar Url

I am trying to Publish Sharepoint with UAG to Internet and the desired url is https://abc.contoso.com and the internal people want to access with http://abc.contoso.com. I have my AAM in Sharepoint similar to this, which i read from Sharepoint UAG msdn documentation. The Internet people access the site using https to reach UAG which inturn request http to Sharepoint server. with the above AAM setup, the internal people will not be able to access the site using http://abc.contoso.com as there is no AAM mapping for it. i am not able to add AAM mapping as it says internal URL already in the collection. Can you please help how to make this setup , thanks Joe

Publish sharepoint site on the internet?


Hi Folks, after reading a few other Q&A's on here thought i'd just have to write one myself and see what sort of responses i got.

I have created an intranet and internet website on a Server2008r2 box with sharepoint 2010. What i want to do is now publish both these on the internet. The intranet one so that people i work with can log in to it and use it for controlling documents and calendars etc, and the internet one so that I have a public accesible website for anyone to look at.

The sites have been created. The server is connected to the internet with a dedicated line. I just wan to get them out there now and start using them.

Noted on one of the other posts i may need an connector licence. Which is fair enough, but really what i want to do just now before i get things out in the open area of the net is just be able to connect to the sites myself for testing from any other internet connection.

So far im having no luck.

Whats the quickest and best route to making sure i can at least access the sites from the internet?

Any help would be great but this is however my first time working with Sharepoint and IIS properly so help IN DETAIL would be even more appreciated.

Im used to just using online hosts and not hosting myself.

Migrate Sharepoint Foundation 2010 to New Server


Due to unusual blue screen problems on virtual host, I need to migrate Sharepoint Foundation 2010 to a new server. Everything is installed on the same server. I have a new server stood up and awaiting data. Is it as simple as going into Backup/Restore and performing a Farm Backup and then a Farm Restore on the new server? What exactly needs to happend to get this done?


Sharepoint 2010 Foundation with Search Server Express


I have Sharepoint 2010 Foundation with Search Server Express installed. The Sharepoint was an upgrade from WSS v3 and search server express 2003.

After the upgrade whenever users search from the main site I get web part errors displayed on the search page. I think because it is trying to use the old search server express which is no longer installed.

Search Server Express 2010 is now installed and a Search Center web page can be viewed however when searching via the entire sites I site the web page with web part errors.

Any thoughts or any further information you require I can provide.

Licensing situation with internet facing website using sharepoint foundation

I'm considering using wss 4.0 for my internet facing website, with windows 2008, sql server 2008 standard on the same physical server. What is the licensing cost I'm looking at? Sifting through Microsoft's literature gave me a headache, yet no closer to an answer. Can anyone give a ballpark number, the way the total costs are added up, and the kind of licenses(processor, server, CAL, external connector etc.) for each components? Also, can I use sql server express with wss 4.0?

Sharepoint Foundation 2010 and Search Server Express


Can I get some clarification on a couple of points?


Firstly, what is the recommended installation path for SPFoundation and Search Server Express on the same server.  Do I just install SSE 2010?  Or SPF 2010 and then SSE 2010?

Secondly, when the two are installed together how do I add the a SSE 2010 search center link to my SPF 2010 site so I can search all crawled content?  I've created crawls of Exchange public folders and file shares but when I use the built-in site search box it's only returning content crawled from the local site and not anything from the other crawls.



Report Builder 3.0 unable to access SharePoint Foundation 2010 Report Server


I am having a terrrible time getting this to work. I have configured the SharePoint site and the SQL Servers involved to use Kerberos. That has been confirmed working.

I then configured the SharePoint site's Reporting Services integration (trusted account), enabled anonymous access and enabled report builder. I can launch report builder without any issues at all. The problem comes when I try to save my report. When Report Builder is started Items->New-ReportBuilder Report it opens and display in the lower left hand corner "No current report server." When I close the Wizard dialog and click connect I enter http://server.fqdn.net and I receive the following error:

Connection failed:

Unable to connect to the server that is specified in the URL, 'http://servername.fqdn.net/'.

Make sure that the server is running, the URL is correct, and you have permission to use the server.

I have also tried http://servername.fqdn.net/reportsserver/. When I try that I receive a login prompt. When I enter my credentials it tries for a few seconds and then sends another login prompt. I installed the report server using default settings. The reporting services db is on the same server as sharepoint. The configuration and other databases are on a remote S

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.
