  • 1. MOSS: attach bare content database from other MOSS server
    I need to open a site collection of another MOSS server (which is no more and had another server name) of which I only have the content and config databases and logs. What is the scenario if I want to attach this database to another MOSS server? Do I need to first create an empty application or do I have to rename the database of a newly created site collection database? Anyone, please provide step-by-step guidance Thank you very much Orfeo

    We would like to pull in blog entries from user blogs (from My Site and other Blogs on the sharepoint server) based on categories. Is there a built in way to do this? Thanks.
  • 3. SQL Audit Failure after reinstall
    Hi, I am setting up a new Server 2003 x64 box with SQL 2005 installed and MOSS 2007 on a Server 2003 Std box. I messed up on the configuration of MOSS (app pool permissions) the first time through and had to reinstall. The reinstall went smoothly and everything is working like a champ. Except I'm getting SQL audit failures every 2 minutes filling my event logs on my x64 box. Right now, I'm assuming they're comming from the old install. Does anyone know what might be going on...or at least how to increase the detail of the SQL auditing so I can determine what DB it's trying to gain access to, etc. to help me determine what's going on? ------------------------------------------------ SQL Event Log Error Date 6/7/2007 11:50:50 AM Log SQL Server (Current - 6/7/2007 11:50:00 AM) Source Logon Message Login failed for user 'ADVANTECHCNY\SHAREPOINT$'. [CLIENT:] Date 6/7/2007 11:50:50 AM Log SQL Server (Current - 6/7/2007 11:50:00 AM) Source Logon Message Error: 18456, Severity: 14, State: 16. --------------------------------------- I've checked the App Pools after the reinstall and none of them use the Network Service account except for the Default App Pool and Office Server App Pool. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Link to discussion board in Topics subarea into Home page

Postby ziyi » Thu, 02 Dec 2004 18:21:05 GMT

Hi all,

I have a discussion board in one of the subareas in the Topics area
which i wish to display on the Home page itself.

For example, the discussion board is in Topics -> Staff Discussion
I wish to link the above discussion board in Home so that users can
see the discussion threads in Topics -> Staff Discussion.

Is there any way which I can achieve the above? 

Thanks in advance!

You can use data views in FrontPage to accomplish this.

Open FrontPage connect to the Area where you want to put the data, Select 
Insert Data View, Manage Catalog, Add the Catalog address from the site where 
you'll be getting the data from, Select the Discussion Board, Select which 
fields of data/sort/and display you would like then save the page.

2.Discussion Board replies posted to top level instead of topic

We have just encountered a problem where replies to a topic on a
discussion board are not posted as replies to that topic - they're
posted as new topics at the top level of the discussion board. This
install of WSS has been working fine for some weeks; this problem
apparently just began today. Any thoughts?

3.Is it possible to move discussion board topics?

4.Web Part availble for home page not available for subarea

I used the Links webpart in SPS2003 on the homepage of our sharepoint site, 
but I noticed that when I go another area on the site, that web part is 
unavailable.  It lists 23 web parts available, rather than the original 28 
that were available for the homepage.  

Am I doing something wrong?
