  • 2. Web Part Errors on rebuild
    Wwhen developing Web Parts, if a change is made to a Web Part that has been placed on a page (resulting in a rebuild of the DLL file) then what happens is that the Web part generates an error:- "Web Part Error: One of the properties of the Web Part has an incorrect format. Windows SharePoint Services cannot deserialize the Web Part. Check the format of the properties and try again." And the only way to make the Web Part work properly once again is to restart IIS. This strikes me as being very flaky and inconsistent since there are other controls and Web Parts that are edited and built without the need to restart IIS. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks In Advance Jason

SPS 2001 Folder Security ACL Stops Responding

Postby Q2hyaXMgRnJvaGxpY2g » Fri, 18 Mar 2005 03:51:02 GMT

When I try to view the ACL on a document folder in Sharepoint Portal Server 
via a network place, the security pane stops responding for minutes at a 
time.  If I leave it for up to 10 min, it will often display, but this is 
rapidly becoming a major problem.

I should note: 

1. The network place is pointed at http://COMPUTERNAME/WorkspaceNAme 
(Essentially at the default website of the box, so host headers, and bound 
IP addresses are not at play here)

2.  I've tried to access the folder security from the portal server itself, 
from several other servers, and from a workstation on our network with the 
same results.

3. OCCAISIONALLY, I can access the ACL with no problem, but I've not been 
able to determine any specific trend to it.  

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.  I've already opened a case 
with Microsoft support, but have not gotten any good answers after 2 days and 
figured I'd try here.  

Thanks in advance,

1.SPS 2001 - Security settings disappear


I've just migrated SPS 2001 from one server to another (same OS and SPS
versions). I used SPSIMEX for the move and all looked fine.

I've just found out however that the security settings I did set in the
SPS administration mmc before the actual content move (just a few
people made coordinator), have disappeared. Furthermore, if I set them
again and log off and on they're gone again. Same thing happens when I
set them on the actual folders using the web folder extension. Before
the move everything was OK.

Can anyone shed a light on this and give me a solution?

Thnx & Regards

Hello Gurus,

we are getting the following errot when we try to access documnets the 
Sharepoint portal Server 2001 through network places

"The client components are installed automatically you cannot install , 
repair or uninstall them separately .To repair them , run Sharepoint portal 
Server 2001
SP1 repair"

When we right click on the document we cannot check-in,check-out or publish 
the documents ..there is no option like that. even when we check the 
properties by right clicking we cannot see any other tabs other than 
'general'. We wonder how these options disappear suddenly.

Please need you help urgently to resolve this issue.
