  • 1. Customize Version History
    How can I customize the Version History display? I want to do this as Administrator as opposed to programmatically. Specifically I neew to show a Version number column in the Version History display, I know users can enter this in the Check In Comments, but if they don't do this at the time, there is no way to edit this field. Thanks, Liam.

    Hi, All my authors are receiving the above error message in SharePoint 2007 when they attempt to edit a document's\folder's properties when they click on the 'OK' button and the page posts back. This error happens for everyone even if I give them 'Full Control' rights. However adding them as 'Site Collection Admins' stops them from receiving the above message and the properties get saved ok. Has anyone else had this issue and solved it, using BTR2 James

I'm adding areas for different project to SPS 2003 and I would like to hide 
the home, Topics, News, sites from horizontal navigation bar in SPS 2003 from 
I know I can go to change settings for each of these areas except home and 
go to display tab and check the Exclude from portal site navigation and it 
will not show on navigation bar. I wnated to know if there is another way to 
do it beside opening the page in front page and removing the links.

I am just starting with Sharepoint development, but have been doing .Net 
development for several years. I too am looking for a similar solution. I 
would like to eliminate the navigation options that users SHOULD not have 
access to.

Why would Site Settings be shown as a menu choice for a user that has no 
admin rights? That just doesn't seem right to me. The default behavior of 
letting them select it then prompting for additional credentials seems very 

Has anyone else approached this topic from a programmatic perspective? I 
would like to be able to include choices based on a users site group maybe?

4.Migrating existing SPS 2003 to new SPS 2003

I have been asked to research any migration tools which will allow my
organization to migrate an existing SPS 2003 implementation to a new
redesigned SP 2003 with a different structure.  In addition we will be
migrating file system documents into the new implementation but need to
modify the metadata for these files because they it was improperly
populated on the original installation.

Does anyone know of any tools that will aid in migrating from SPS 2003
to another SPS 2003?  And what about changing the metadata when needed?


5.Migrating/Restoring SPS Sites from one SPS 2003 to another SPS 2003

RE: Migrating/Restoring SPS Sites from one SPS 2003 to another SPS

I've been playing with Sharepoint MOSS 2007 for a few weeks.. but I
now have a project to upgrade a few Sharepoint Portal Server 2003
sites to 2007.

My first step to build a safe place where we can play and I decided to
build a server and install SPS 2003.

A few novice questions.

1. I've been looking for the SPS 2003 install and can't find it. I
know we have a license. I see the download site for sp3. where can I
download SPS 2003 and how can I tell what sp level our SPS 2003
instances is at. On our network I found an install form SPS 2003 sp1,
but that gave me an error saying it can only install on windows 2000..
our server is at 2003.

2. Currently we peform a backup of all sites under a given SPS 2003 as
SPSBackup.exe" /all /file

Will i be able to use that backup to restore everything I need from
one instance to another?

3. What if one server is on a given domain and the other is not?

4. After I find the SPS software, if my plan is restore in an existing
site, should I still proceed to creating a top level site?

Thanks for any help or information!
