Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007 - Configuration / Setup - Login failed for user ''. The user is not associated with a trusted SQL Server configuration.
After installing MOSS and launching the SharePoint Configuration Wizard (psconfig.exe) - you are ready to begin the last leg of your MOSS installation/setup. Here you provide the setup with the particualars for your server. Often you are installing MOSS with SQL Server being remote from MOSS, and you will be using a domain-level service account for the installation. The following is an example of the data you might enter during this step: (if the pic does not show - click here) Here you have a named ......

InfoPath 2007 - MOSS 2007 - The form cannot be displayed because session state is not available.
Whether you are working with forms in custom workflows - or simply trying to publish a form to a form library in MOSS so you can collect information from the user, you may encounter this error. Initially if you Google the error - you may find comments that state that you need to uncomment the following line in the web.config for the web application: <!-- <add name="Session" type="System.Web.SessionSta... --> DO NOT uncomment this field. Many do this and the forms ......

The resource object with key 'open_menu' was not found - Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007 - TR Upgrade Issue
There is a detailed step-by-step path to follow when applying the B2TR to a B2 MOSS installation. This particular error shows itself when you are upgrading a stand-alone beta 2 installation, and you did not delete the registry keys specified for the Search Service. Interestingly, if you follow the steps - and be sure to delete the registry keys outlined in a stand-alone B2 installation - upgrade, the error does not surface. Googling the error does not return any real support - and MSFT has shared ......

Microsoft SharePoint Office Server (MOSS) 2007 B2TR and RTM - Deprecated TopNavFlyouts master page and other deprecated components that break your master page after applying these upgrades
Between beta 2 and beta 2 TR/RTM - a number of things changed in the MOSS master pages/CSS - and the odds are that if you have custom master pages in B2, and especially if you customized the TopNavFlyouts or LeftNavFlyouts master pages - after applying TR or RTM - you'll find that your master page is broke - and the site will not come up. Do not despair - help is close at hand!!! A number of things changed in B2TR and followed into RTM. We can make some minor customizations to your current master ......

MOSS 2007 / WSS v3. - A Marriage and Chemistry that Deserves Attention!!!
Just when you think you have seen it all - I must share one you have NOT seen yet. Emphasis on YET??? As we forge ahead and architect these awesome solutions using MOSS - I suspect it is fairly easy to become enamored of some basics - you know, the little details that are the life-blood of your solution. :) Like I said - basics. Basic 1) WSS is a life-blood underpinning of MOSS. Basic 2) Without basic 1, there will be no basic 2 !!! Today I experienced absolute bliss - from a MOSS perspective :) ......

Application Server Admnistration job failed for service instance Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.SearchServiceInstance - The device is not ready.
After successfully upgrading MOSS B2TR to RTM (or thinking all was successful) - I started to see this error in the Application Event Log - every 60 seconds. It was preceded by: The Execute method of job definition Microsoft.Office.Server.Sea... - threw an exception. More information is included below. The device is not ready. Like many of you before me - and very likely after me, I Googled to my heart's content - and suffice to say my heart was never ......

The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID - MOSS / SharePoint 2007 Server Issues Revisited
You may see this error - more than once - when working with your Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007 deployment. This animal / error generally shows itself after you have applied an upgrade to an existing deployment. For example, when upgrading from B2 MOSS to B2TR MOSS - or when applying a special service pack from MSFT - you may begin to see a lot of these errors pop up in the SYSTEM event log. The error CLSID is followed by a class ID for the DCOM+ application that the service account ......

A failure was encountered while launching the process serving application pool 'SharePoint Central Administration v3'. The application pool has been disabled. - SharePoint Server 2007 Setup
Just an FYI... As you forge ahead into the world of MOSS and deploying / configuring MOSS sites with actual service accounts - you may very well run into this error. The PRIMARY cause of this error has to do with the service account. When you created the service account, you set a password for it. Did you document that with your client? If you did not, it is very possible that someone in IT at the client site will change it to something THEY know and want to manage. Alas, all things SharePoint begin ......

The IIS Admin Service service terminated with service-specific error 2149648394 (0x8021080A).
The IIS Admin Service service terminated with service-specific error 2149648394 (0x8021080A). IIS Admin Service goes away after restoring a VHD / VPC Server I recently had the unexpected pleasure of losing my IIS Admin server - altogether!!! Translate - 150% !!! Now, before this - everything was going great - except. During an upgrade of MOSS (Microsoft Office SharePoint Server) I encounted an issue that forced me to restore a VPC image - essentially bringing over another copy of the VHD and firing ......

Windows Vista and Microsoft Office 2007 - A New Experience
As a developer, I have really only 1 requisite - that I have a FAST machine. If I cannot compile 180K lines of code in less than 2 minutes, well, it's time for an upgrade!!! On another note, as a MSFT developer, I have been involved in many beta (often more like alpha) programs. Vista and Office were no exception. Office - very well done. The RTM is proving to be faster than the B2TR bits were - and I have not had a crash yet. But the real cherry on this piece of pie is Vista - Vista Ultimate. I ......

Visual Studio Team System - Visual Studio code-name "Orcas"
Visual Studio Team System - Visual Studio code-name "Orcas" If you are heavy into .Net development and Visual Studio (VS) - you are already aware of VS's rich IDE and are probably familiar with some, if not many of the VS extensions, like Tools for Office (VSTO) and integration with other products like BizTalk and the Windows Workflow Foundation (get an intro to WWF and how to use it). So what is Orcas? In a word, the latest offering for Vista and the 2007 Office System development platform. Read ......

Customizing / Chroming / Custom Chrome - Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007 - Beta 2 TR (technical refresh)
Microsoft (MSFT) has done a lot to see this product come to fruition, and I am genuinely impressed with the B2 TR bits. With that stated, I learned quickly that the TR bits include new master pages, style sheets, and more significantly, different (and some removed) placeholders. I will revisit/re-factor my approach to help with this change. In summary, if you have used my walk-through to deploy the sample custom chrome, the TR bits are not so different that you cannot tweak it and get it working. ......

Chrome / Branding Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007 - Customizing MOSS / Core Components vs. Templates
I have had a ton of feedback regarding my original posting for custom Chrome / Branding of MOSS. One of the dialogs got very specific and I wanted to share a little more here in an effort to clarify some Best Practices for customizing MOSS. I want to clarify that product documentation on MOSS is not complete, it is still in B2 bits, and Best Practices are my take on what they should be when it comes to customizing the back-end, and in no way reflects anything directly from Micrsoft at this time. ......

Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) Forms Based Authentication (FBA) - How to remove and use Windows Authenticaion on Internet Presence Web Site template.
Removing Forms-based-authentication (FBA) from Internet Presence Web Site (TopNavFlyouts.master) and adding Windows Authentication. REVIEW When we deploy Internet Presence Web Site templates (for publishing), we found that the default authentication model provided is Forms-Based-Authentication (or FBA). This posed a problem on 1 engagement because we needed either Windows Authentication, or we allowed the users to browse Anonymous. Now, during the basic setup of a Web Application in MOSS, you can ......

Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 - MOSS - Initial Immersion and First Looks
I know I have been away from this blog too long, and I am going to wrap up on my Directory Services Part 3 and 4 in 2 weeks and get those posted. I've been snatched out of the 'design box' and have spent the last several weeks on a deep-dive, total immersion of MOSS - Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007. I've been very fortunate to be on an RDP, TAP and DEMO development efforts for MSFT (Microsoft) and after all the initial pains - my first take is THIS IS AWESOME STUFF! Key areas that we thought ......

Office Server 2007 Developer's Conference.
No, I was not one of the 'blessed' that got to attend this conference, but I thought I'd share the following link because those of you new to Office 2007 / Office Server 2007 / SharePoint 2007 will find the direction MSFT is going very interesting, and this brief video does a great job of touching on highlights of the new technologies involved, and the direction MSFT is taking. http://msevents.microsoft.c... ......
