Problem: I was installing 64 Bit Version of MOSS and configuring the databases on a 32 Bit SQL server. Now on the MOSS server I had 32 bit SQL client tools to setup the SQL server alias. So my connection string when configuring MOSS was "SharePointSQLServer" for the SQL server 10.x.x.x on instance ABC01 port 1435 (10.x.x.x\ABC01, 1435). Now I was setting up the alias on MOSS server using SQL client tools. For some reason confuguration wizard was not detecting the correct SQL alias and was throwing me error of cannot connect to DB server.
Solution and Attempts:
- I tried different sets of aliases but no help. For example tried using machine name instead of IP, tried using FQDN of machine name, tried without instance name. No help!
- Then I thought it might be 32 bit client tools. So I tried removing 32 bit version and installed 64 bit version of SQL client tools. Still No help!
- Worked Solution: Then I went through the registry entries at:
The SQL client tools add the regisrty entry to this location for 32 bit applications running on 64 bit operating System. But MOSS 64 Bit configuration wizard was not reading from this location and instead trying to use the Alias name directly from some other location.
So I went and checked in registry entries at this location:
(64 Bit Location)HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSSQLServer\Client
And there was no ConnectTo key. So even after installing 64 Bit version of SQL client tools the conenction string was not getting set at above location and was going into Wow6432Node key which is used for 32 bit applications. So I created a ConnectTo key by exporting from 32 Bit Location (Wow6432Node) and importing into 64 Bit Location so that my registry key on MOSS server looks like this:
And checked that the value of connection string is: "DBMSSOCN,SharePointSQLServer,PortNumber"
And guess what? Yes it worked!
So on 64 Bit Windows 2003 machines if you get any issues related to entries in regisrty keys then you know where and what to look for :-)
Let me know if you have any questions on this.

- I created a new SSP.
-Associated web applications from old SSP to new SSP through Central Administration.
-Change the default SSP to new one.
-Deleted the old SSP including all associated databases.
-Deleted old SSP web application.
After this next day I saw in event logs there were errors thrown related synchronization of MySite and Portal web application with content databases. The errors were as below:

These errors are related to profile synchronization issues. As WSS and MOSS has got different storage of User Profile data the "SYNC" job runs every 1 hour by default to synchronize data between the content databases. And Web Application stores these profile data. But for some entry in content databases of web application it still thinks that it has to open old SSP database. So now we have to clean the entries in following manner:
-Firtly get the GUIDs of all the web applications and content databases as thrown in the error long.
-Use this GUID to find the web application name because of which sync is going crazy. You can either use SharePoint Inspector or SharePoint Manager to find these details. Both can be downloaded from http://www.codeplex.com/spm and http://www.codeplex.com/spi
-Since I didn't prepared the web application's content database before changing the SSP hence all the issue started. So probably (I haven't tried yet) if we do this step before changing the association then we might not run into this situation. So now we have to fix the synchronization of content databases using "preparetomove" STSADM command. When the preparetomove operation is not run prior to moving the content database, synchronization can fail on a particular content database that has been moved to a new Web application. Synchronization is fixed for that content database by using this command. We will run this command for every web application and corresponding content database as follows:
stsadm -o preparetomove -site %WEBAPP%
-Once this command is run successfully we need to detach and reattach all the faulty content databases with their web applications again. You will do this by using "deletecontentdb" and "addcontentdb" STSADM commands as shown below:
stsadm -o deletecontentdb -url %WEBAPP% -databaseserver %DBSERVER% -databasename %DBNAME%
stsadm -o addcontentdb -url %WEBAPP% -databasename %DBNAME% -databaseserver %DBSERVER%
After doing this you can wait for next synchronization which occurs every hour by default or change the sync timing default value temporarily by using following command:
stsadm -o sync -synctiming "m:5" (This will run synchronization in every 5 minutes)
Wait for 5 minutes and check your error log. You will not see any reported errors.
Reset the sync timing back to default value of 1 hour
stsadm -o sync -synctiming "h:1"
Hopefully this will help you in resolving similar errors or issues.

stsadm -o osearch -defaultindexlocation e:\Data\MOSS_Search_Index
Changing the index location will reset the index. To move an index with a reset, use the noreset parameter of the Spsearchsensitive or Osearchsensitive operation)
stsadm -o spsearch -indexlocation e:\Data\MOSS_Search_Index

Event ID: 10036
A database error occurred.
Source: Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server
Code: 6 occurred 1 time(s)
Description: [DBNETLIB][ConnectionOpen (Connect()).]Specified SQL server not found.
Error Description: Could not access the Search service configuration database.
Few tips to avoid this kind of error:
- Make sure the search service account has got DBCreator role on DB server. You can remove this role once the service is started.
- Offcourse your normal Farm Admin service account also needs DbCreator and SecurityAdmin role.
- I have read someone saying to use Named Pipes for remote connection. But this is not true it should work with TCP/IP connection as well. So in your SQL server make sure that your remote connection is enabled for either TCP/IP or Named Pipes or for both.
- Make sure the DB Server name in your connection string is consistent in your farm for all other webapps, admin content config database etc etc..
- Finally the solution that worked for me was that I was using "DB server name\Instance, port" as the connection string and this format of connection string uses Named Pipes. Unfortunately Named Pipes was disabled so I have to use an Alias of the DB server to use the TCP/IP connection. Also once the alias is setup for you by the DBA's you have to set it up on the MOSS server under SQL Server Client Configuration settings. You can also use server name if you are using default instance for TCP/IP.
I hope that makes sense. If anybody has any more suggestions or corrections to my suggestions then please do leave a comment.

How good is that?? No need to buy a CD/DVD. Just mount the tool whenever you need to run the install.

1) Feature way:
Create a feature.xml in the normal way as you do for any other feature. Here is the example:
"<"!--Created by Kunal Kochhar at 18/08/2008 10:21:18 AM--">"
"<"Feature Id="66D0E36C-4D48-46D0-90E9-7BFGHFBE4E3C" Title="Item receiver attacher" Description="This feature will attach event handler to a task item generated by Disposition workflow" Version="220.127.116.11" Scope="Web" Hidden="false" ImageUrl="CustomBranding.gif" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/"">"
"<"ElementManifest Location="elements.xml" /">"
Now write the elements.xml file. This file will have Receivers tag. Read here more about Receivers element:
Let me show you the elements file:
'<'Assembly'>'assemblyname, [full four part]'<'/Assembly'>'
As you can see I am saying ListTemplateId=107 in the Receivers element. This id is the List Template Id for Tasks list type. You can refer to more list template ids here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms431081.aspx
Once you deploy and activate this feature on web it will attach your required event handler with all the existing tasks lists or any new ones that you create.
2) Lets see the second approach which is through code. The SPWeb object exposes list templates and contenttypes collections. You can retreive the required list template type and content type and can add your eventreceiver assembly in their eventreceivers collection. Here is an example to add it to a content type:
SPWeb web = SPContext.Current.Web;
SPContentType ct = web.ContentTypes["Tasks"];
SPEventReceiverDefinition receiverDef = ct.EventReceivers.Add();
receiverDef.Name = "Custom_ItemAdded";
receiverDef.Type = SPEventReceiverType.ItemAdded;
receiverDef.SequenceNumber = 10012;
receiverDef.Assembly = "assembly, [full four part assembly details]";
receiverDef.Class = "namespacename.classname";
I hope this will help some of you. If you have any queries in relation to this then please feel free to write to me.

What you can do is, Task list exposes few properties which are hidden which tells the exact workflow information. The three properties which are of our interests are:
Workflow List ID (This represents the document library ID from where the workflow was initiated)
Workflow Item ID (This represents the document for which the work flow is initiated)
ows_WorkflowInstanceID (This is the workflow instance id of the workflow that has been setup for document library. This will help us to get the workflow type)
Let me show you a code snippet to get these details:
public override void ItemAdded(SPItemEventProperties properties)
SPListItem taskItem = properties.ListItem;
//Check if the item added is a Workflow related or not
if (taskItem["Workflow List ID"] != null)
SPWeb web = properties.OpenWeb();
Guid sourceListID = new Guid(taskItem["Workflow List ID"].ToString());
SPList sourceList = web.Lists.GetList(sourceListID, true);
int sourceListItemID = Convert.ToInt32(taskItem["Workflow Item ID"]);
SPListItem sourceListItem = sourceList.GetItemById(sourceListItemID);
//Get the workflow instance id from Task item
Guid taskWorkflowInstanceID = new Guid(taskItem["ows_WorkflowInstanceID"].ToString());
//Get the workflow object
SPWorkflow wf = sourceListItem.Workflows[taskWorkflowInstanceID ]
//Get the workflow association object
SPWorkflowAssociation wfAss = sourceList.WorkflowAssociations[wf.AssociationId];
//Check if the associated workflow is of type Disposition Approval
//This GUID will be same in every MOSS install
if (wfAss.BaseId.Equals(new Guid("dd19a800-37c1-43c0-816d-f8eb5f4a4145")))
//if the workflow is of type disposition then do your action
catch (ArgumentException argex)
catch (SPException spex)
catch (Exception ex)
You will notice that I am checking the base id of the Workflow Association object this gives us the workflow type which has been setup for the document library. In this case I am checking if the base id is of same type of the Disposition workflow. This GUID will be same in every MOSS install. Now in next post I will tell you how you can attach this event receiver with a Task list template type.
Tuesday, August 19, 2008
Event Handler Explorer. This tool allows you to browse and list instances and content types and to attach even handlers manually. This way you will be assured that the event receiver is attached properly.
Thought of sharing this great tool with every one :-)

There is a workaround which my colleague and me came up with. But this workaround is if you want to totaly disable ECB menu for a particular list. Actually there are couple of workarounds, but its upto you which one you wanna go with (depending upon the time constraint).
First is create your own custom web part which will list all the items using SPGridView and then you can customize it as per your requirement and place that web part within a PlaceHolderMain of your custom copy of AllItems.aspx page. For this you will have to remove the View from a List Definition. This is a time consuming process and I would recommend this only if you have to do lot of customization to your ListView Webpart on AllItems page.
Second option is to use a different column to disaply Title column of a list. For any list there are three types of Title columns. a) Title b) LinkTitleNoMenu c) LinkTitle
Now you can set any of these columns in a view of either a List Definition or from the user interface. So ,this way you can decide if you want to have a ECB menu for a particular list or not.

I have used two tools and developed some code snippets. I will teach you in my next post on how to create these code snippets for feature.xml, elements.xml, onet.xml or any other xml code that you will need to make your development fast.
The tools that I have used are very familiar STSDEV and Andrew Connel's Project Utility Tool. Now you must have already seen, heard or used these tools. But since both the tools have their drawbacks, so we can use both these tools in sync to suit our needs. You can check above links to know in detail about these tools.
STSDEV: Gives us the flexibility of creating .ddf file, .wsp package, deploying assemblies to GAC, adding SafeControl to web.config on deployment and many build types. But one thing that needs to be done manually in STSDEV is creating folder structure. It does creates a basic RootFiles folder structure for you but if you have to add any more folders which has got a deep tree structure then you have to keep adding it manually. This is where Project Utility Tool plays its role.
Andrew Connel's Project Utility Tool : Also gives us benefit of creating .ddf file, .wsp package and more. But it has its drawbacks of not being able to handle any changes in .ddf file manually and some more stuff that STSDEV gives. So we will use this tool for generating the folder structure in a project that STSDEV has created.
I am not really commenting here on which is a good tool or a bad tool. I am really giving you an idea to utilise best of the outcomes of both tools and increase your efficiency and performance in developing custom SharePoint solutions. We really don't want to waste our time in doing repeated things when developing a SharePoint solution so why not use these beautiful tools which makes our life easier.
And also, I am not saying this is the best way to create and maintain Visual Studio projects for SharePoint solutions. If anybody has got any different idea then please do mention it here and share the knowledge among MOSS geeks :-)

There are around more than 100 services that run on a Windows 2003 Server. Some of these services might be useful and some may not be. So why not disable them rather than letting them chew your server resources. There are five basic service that you can quickly think of disabling. These are listed below:
1. ERSvc - Error Reporting Service (Used for reporting application crashes to Microsoft)
2. HidServ - Human Interface Device Access (Used for other smart devices, which you might not use on a server)
3. IsmServ - Intersite Messaging (Used for sending messages from server to server)
4. ScardSvr - Smart Card Access
5. LMHosts - TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper
Now these services are just the start. There is a list of other services that you can check, if you really need them. TechRepublic gives you such list. You can downlowd it from here.
Hope this might be helpful in some instances. Like you can disable such services on your VPC which you might be using as a development environment.

Now for adding a new site column to custom list, you can add it directly when provisioning custom List Definition you can learn this here. But if you want to add a site column to already provisioned list you need to do it through object model.
Firstly you need to find the system content type for a List. Every list in in SharePoint uses a content type, either system content type or custom content type. You can view the content type hierarchy here. And you can find an associated content type for a system List using following lines of code in a console app:
using (SPSite site = new SPSite("http://devmoss/)"))
using (SPWeb web =
//List Content types in a web
foreach (SPContentType ct in web.ContentTypes)
//List Content types in a List
SPList list = web.Lists["Posts"];
foreach (SPContentType ctl in list.ContentTypes)
Now once you know the content type of a List in which you wish to add a
custom column, you can use it add a new SPFieldLink to that SPContentType
object. Below is the sample code:
using (SPSite site = new SPSite("http://devmoss001/)"))
using (SPWeb web = site.OpenWeb())
string newColumn= "New Column";
//Construct required content type objects
SPContentType wikiContentType = web.ContentTypes["Wiki Page"];
//Check if the site column already exists
//If the site column doesn't exist then create a new column and assign it to custom columns group
popularity = web.Fields.Add(newColumn, SPFieldType.Number, true);
SPFieldNumber fieldNum = (SPFieldNumber)web.Fields[newColumn];
fieldNum.Group = "Custom Columns";
//Get the field reference of new site column
SPFieldLink fieldLink = new SPFieldLink(web.Fields[newColumn]);
if (fieldLink != null)
//Add the site column to wiki content type
catch (SPContentTypeSealedException ex)
catch (SPContentTypeReadOnlyException ctEx)
catch (SPException ex)
//Write to Logger
I hope that will be of some help to you. If you have any questions related to this concept then feel free to write to me.

Mark Wagner has dotted down some good best practices to do this. Check here
Ted Pattison has also written some great details about the complete process to do it and he has also uploaded a sample feature to do this. Check here
And if you are still not satisfied then read more information about SPWebConfigModification on msdn
row["FileRef"] = 1;#Popular Wiki/How To Use This Wiki Library.aspx
**row is from the datatable returned when you run web.GetSiteData(query) and query is the constructed SPSiteDataQuery.
We can retreive the URL part from it and construct the complete link from the root site. Something like this:
string url = row["FileRef"].ToString().Substring(row["FileRef"].ToString().IndexOf("#") + 1);
string finalUrl = site.MakeFullUrl(url);
You can read more about MakeFullUrl() method here msdn

If you have seen my previous post on Site Def architecture, we have got Modules node:
<Modules> <Module Name="Default" Url="" >
<File Url="default.aspx" NavBarHome="True" Type="Ghostable"> </File>
Now under File node we have <AllUsersWebPart> node available. This is the key to add any webpart instances. Below is the example:
<AllUsersWebPart WebPartZoneID="Right" WebPartOrder="0">
xmlns:iwp="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WebPart/v2/Image%22> <Assembly>Microsoft.SharePoint, Version=18.104.22.168, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c</Assembly> <TypeName>Microsoft.SharePoint.WebPartPages.ImageWebPart</TypeName> <FrameType>None</FrameType>
<Title>Home Page</Title> <iwp:ImageLink>/_layouts/images/CONTACT.PNG</iwp:ImageLink> </WebPart> ]]>
You will have to remove single quote ( ' ) from the opening and closing angle brackets to use this. Sorry for this as they were being removed when publishing.
'<'?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?'>'
'<'Project Title="My Site Definition" Revision="0" ListDir="Lists" xmlns:ows="Microsoft SharePoint" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/"'>'
'<'Configuration ID="-1" Name="NewWeb" /'>'
'<'Configuration ID="0" Name="Default"'>'
'<'Module Name="Default" /'>'
'<'Module Name="Default" Url="" '>'
'<'File Url="default.aspx" NavBarHome="True" Type="Ghostable"'>''<'/File'>'
This is how! Try to add this webpart on your page through EditPage action. Once you have added you can now Export this webpart and open the .webpart file in a notepad. There you will see something like this:
'<'assembly'>'Microsoft.SharePoint.Portal, Version=22.214.171.124, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c'<'/assembly'>' '<'typename>Microsoft.SharePoint.Portal.WebControls.QuickLinksMicroView'<'/typename'>'
Here Typename is the class name of the webpart. And this is for a My Links webpart. This will come handy manytimes when the name of Webpart class is different from the name in webpart gallery (Which is the case most of the time)
Finally bolgger world has pulled me to start my own blog. I have been thinking this for so long and now my self motivation has forced me to create my knowledge sharing place. I have created this blog to share any issues , solutions, tricks etc..that I find when working on MOSS projects. I hope this information will be helpful to some of you and will save some time.
Will try my best to actively post any solutions or tips I find or come across.
Oh yeah! and just to start with - tomorrow is a SharePoint UserGroup happening in Canberra. Patrick Tisseghem is in town and will be delivering a session on Customizing Search page and results. Check this: http://www.sharepointusers.org.au/Canberra/default.aspx
I am defi going for this session and will try to share some information on here.
