MOSS 2007 and .NET framework 3.5 SP1 – Second part

I've had an article about our .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 issue, where the Records Center went wrong after the .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 installation. Well, that story comes back to my life again and again, so I had to search forward the issues. Well, Anders mentioned the loopback check in his comment as well as the Microsoft MCS recommended me to check that. (Un?)fortunately I’m too curious and the simple solution is not enough to me. I wanted to know: why? First of all, some facts: My post about this issue was written on October 31, 2008. Another post about … Continue reading MOSS 2007 and .NET framework 3.5 SP1 – Second part

Linq4SP – RC2 timebomb extended

Although the development of Linq4SP has been finished since a few weeks, unfortunately we had to be faced a few (sales and marketing based) issues during publishing it.

You need to purchase a license file to run this software." We apologize for the inconvenience.

You can download it from here. … Continue reading Linq4SP – RC2 timebomb extended

MOSS 2007 and .NET Framework 3.5 SP1

At one of our customers we had to faced with a very-very sneaky trouble. The environment: Windows Server 2003 SP2 x64, with MOSS 2007 Enterprise, and of course .NET framework 2.0 and 3.0. The SQL Server 2005 is installed to a separated hardware. The farm is a test environment on the customer side, with almost 1 year on-time: this is the integration "bridge" between our dev environment and the customer's production one. Every solution is deployed to this server first, here are the user acceptance tests, and after the acceptance they'll be deployed to the production farm. As we wanted … Continue reading MOSS 2007 and .NET Framework 3.5 SP1

OBACT Appsettings

When you install the OBA Composition Toolkit, maybe you have to face the provisioning problem described a few days ago. One more detail about this issue: during OBACT installation these tags will be inserted into the web.config file of SharePoint Server Central Administration's web application: <add key="OBAAdministration" value="http://spsdemo:21212/CompositionServer/Administration.asmx" /> <add key="OBACompositionInstallerPath" value="C:\Program Files\CompOBARefToolkit\" /> If the last one is missing, the proper database field will be empty, so the provisioning is failed.

Although SSDS (SQL Server Data Services) is in private Beta status, but we've got SSDS SDK Beta since last week! This contains a Command Line Tool, and the SSDS Explorer.
