Another MOSS Portal Project (Past)

Below is the image of a project that I completed in february 2008.  This is MOSS Standard Portal with log of customizations.  Almost 30 Web Controls were Developed as Web Parts using ASP.NET 2.0 and AJAX.  These controls are loading data from a complex dataware house which use hundreds of stored procedures and objects.  Audience is used to show and hide controls on the pages and master page and page layouts are designed for the placement.

Installing Infrastructure Updates Step by Step

Step 1

Make sure you updates the server at a time with less users.

Take Full Backup

Back up the server farm before you start the software update installation. You should create a backup of search and all databases. We recommend that you follow these guidelines:

  • Search: Use the full backup operation from SharePoint Central Administration or the stsadm command-line tool to back up the Shared Services Provider (SSP) that is associated with the index server. The backup operation includes both the SSP database and content index in the file system.

  • Configuration database and Central Administration content database: Perform a full backup operation by using either the stsadm command-line tool or SQL Server. If you are using SQL Server, use the simple recovery model, so that your transaction log is truncated.

  • Content databases: Perform a full backup operation with either the stsadm command-line tool or SQL Server to back up all content databases. If you are using SQL Server, use the simple recovery model, so that your transaction log is truncated.

  • Front-end Web server: If you have customized the front-end Web server or are unsure of the extent of the customizations to your Web applications, we recommend that you make a backup image of your front-end Web server. Make sure that you have a backup of any solution packages that you have deployed on your front-end Web servers.

A Nice Introduction to Content Deployment

Greetings, everyone! My name is Tyler Butler, and I’m a Program Manager working on the Web Content Management (WCM) features in Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007 at Microsoft. There’s been a lot of interest in learning more about the WCM feature set that has been built into MOSS and how Internet-facing sites can be built, maintained, and supported on top of MOSS. In this post, I’ll cover how a particular WCM feature called Content Deployment supports multi-farm topologies and can be used to enable authoring -> staging -> production scenarios. I’ll talk a little about previous solutions to the problem, give you an overview of the Content Deployment feature, and discuss the architecture of the feature in-depth.
