SharePoint Services. 04-06-10


We are trying to do a migration of Sharepoint Services V2.0 from one server 
to another.

Run smigrate to do a migration of the database and website, this appears to 
work, it backups and compresses all the files into a .fwp format. When we do 
a restore it becomes apparent that not everything has been backedup 
correctly. large chunks of the website are missing and no users or 
permissions have been transferred.

The command i am using to back is smigrate.exe –w http://server/site –f 
C:\companywebbackup\companyweb.fwp -u user_name -pw password

To restore smigrate.exe -r -w http://server/site -f 
C:\companywebbackup\*.fwp -u user_name -pw password

Everything on the backup shows it has worked and is running at around 8GB, 
when I do a restore it shows errors and has data missing which clearly means 
it has not backed up correctly. there has been chat about moving the SQL 
Database instead of using smigrate.exe, is this viable.

If anybody has any ideas I would appreciate them as my company relys on this 
Service and the existing server is falling apart so it has to be done

Hello Dave,

Thanks for your post.

I am not sure if you have checked the KB 829112, besides Stsadm.exe command-line , please try to use the Windows NTBackup to backup and restore companyweb :
How to back up and restore http://companyweb data in Windows Small Business Server 2003

Hope this helps.

Workflow email 06-14-07
Hi, I created a workflow rule that should send an e-mail to a specific user every time a service activity is created. For some reason, even though the rule doesn't appear as paused on the workflow monitor, no e-mail is received. I tried to send to an external user (private email) and that worked. The exchange mail server is working correctly, and the environment diagnostics wizard is clear. This sort of rule is essential for us so i really have to figure this out. Any ideas of what to check? There are no errors in the event viewer for the crm server or the exchange server. Than...

My impression is not really. or at least not if you don't want a frequently corruped database. Access can look at and access and link to sharepoint tables/views HOWEVER I have found it to be horribly slow. I have written a couple of apps that pulled info from sharepoint and the best w...

Sharepoint and GP
At Convergence this year there was a session about GP and Sharepoint (it was GP12 -- How Microsoft Dynamics GP Helps Save You Money with Microsoft Office Sharepoint) and John Dooley gave a demo of some workflow that was between GP and Sharepoint. A customer was created in GP and it would automatically send a business alert to Sharepoint to create a folder for that customer. Was anyone else here sitting in or know about how he did that? I know how to do the alert, of course, and I have a rudimentary understanding of the workflow in WSS 3, but how do the two talk to each other so it makes the ...

97 to 2000 03-03-04
Hi there, I am currently building a database in Access 97. In four months, we will be converting to Access 2000. Are there any issues that I need to be aware of - will I lose any functionality when making the upgrade to 2000? Thank you so much, Salli It's impossible to say. It depends on the specifics of your application. However, I have upgraded hundreds of Access 97 applications (most of them being code intensive) without any problem. That's not to say it can't happen. The good news is that you don't actually convert a database. The conversion utility creates a N...

Printing Quotes 12-13-04
In MS CRM, to print quotes you merge your quote to a Word document template, using the Sales for Outlook client. With this template, I can dress up a quote to have a specific look and feel. I also see how, once you open a quote in CRM how you can perform a generic "print" of the quote, but nothing fancy. In fact, you can't, as I understand it, modify this report. What if I don't have a Sales for Outlook client and I want to print a quote -- dressed up? How is that being accomplished. If you do not use Sales for Outlook client it is only possible to create a n...

Windows 7, MS Project, or Sharepoint which to get first
We are planning on getting all 3 but were wondering what questions to ask as to which to get first to start development with. Project Server runs on sharepoint, so you if you are using project server you need sharepoint. Project can run on windows vista, etc. so Windows 7 would not be a requirement. Of course if you want to use project you need to get project too... Sharepoint requires some sort of operating system, so if you have none then you need to buy something - and windows server would be a good starting point. What are you planning to develop? -Jack "chaz...

Apparently, this was easily fixed after many complaints in Service Pack 1 with this Hotfix: Unfortunately, when I try to install that Hotfix, I get an error message stating...

GP10 and Sharepoint
