Next is Exam 70-668 PRO: Microsoft SharePoint 2010, Administrator
Friday, July 02, 2010
I have created a test team site with a document library name "My doc lib" and a test user who does not have access to the team site, as shown below
Here are the steps to configure the Anonymous access to the Lists and Libraries(ex., My doc Lib) and before proceding to the steps, lets login with the new user and try to access the document library
Ok, test Passed :) , Document Library Access is denied for the test user and here are the steps.Step 1: Go to the library settings of the document library
Step 2: Click Permission for this document library
Step 3: Now the permission Tools page will be displayed, but this page(Ribbon) will not display the anonymous access option, because this libary is inheriting the permission from its parent, and in this scenario it inherits permission from the Team site.
Step 4 -Stop Inheriting Permissions from the parent
Done!, now the anonymous user is able to access the document library, see top right corner.
Thursday, July 01, 2010
Step 1 : Goto Central Administration ->Application Management ->Manage Web Applications
Step 2 : Select the web application for which you need to enable anonymous access
Step 3 : Select Default (Authentication Providers)
(Note:I created my web application with Claims authentication)
Step 4 : Select Enable anonymous access
Step 7 : Click on Site actions -> Site Permissions
- Entire Web Site - Select this option to enable Anonymous access to the entire web site
- Lists and Libraries - Select this option to enable Anonymous access only to your lists and libraries, This way you can provide access only to a particular list or a library for your anonymous users.
Step 9: Select List and Libraries ( I am not enabling anonymous access to the entire site)
Let see how to enable anonymous access to our document library in Part 2 - How to Enable anonymous access to List and Libraries.

SharePoint 2010 is the new business collaboration platform from Microsoft, which greatly improves features that were offered in MOSS 2007. After every release of new software in the market, the hottest debate is whether to migrate or to live with the existing implementation of the previous version of the Software.
Many of our clients have shown interest to migrate from MOSS 2007 to SharePont 2010 and wants to know the advantages of the New SharePoint 2010 over MOSS 2007 Platform and Roadmap for up gradation. Yes, SharePoint 2010 does offer better business collaboration platform, but the first big question comes to mind is, Do you really want to migrate? And what are the pros and cons of the new platform.
SharePoint has come a long way, its no more a single server product and it integrates multiple technologies, as the technology grows and it paves way for more innovation and SharePoint is not an execption. There are tons of features which makes the New Platform as a single choice for all our business requirements,However final decision should be made only based on the pros and cons of the current implementation of MOSS 2007 and migration of SharePoint 2010.
In these series of blogs we will see different ways that we can use to migrate from MOSS2007 to SharePoint 2010.
Software and Hardware requirements
Firstly SharePoint 2010 is no more 32 Bit platform, is now only 64 Bit Platform, this means we need 64 Bit Hardwires for all Web, App and Database servers, and 64 Bit windows servers that are capable of running SharePoint 2010.
Here are the brief requirements for SharePoint 2010
- SharePoint 2010 is now only 64 Bit
- Windows Server 2008 SP2 or Windows Server 2008 R2
- Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 64 Bit Edition or Microsoft SQL Server 2005 64 Bit Edition
See SharePoint 2010 Hardware and Software Requirements for more detailed information
SharePoint Architecture has changed, No more SSP's we have Service application for each application like we have now Managed Metadata Service, Excel Service, Word Services, et al. These architecture changes involve lots of planning before migrating existing MOSS implementation.
Let us see the migration approaches that are available with SharePoint 2010
Before determining the migration approached its better to evaluate the current MOSS implementation, and document all the artifacts of the portal.
Typical documentation would include the following
- Farm Topology
- List of Servers
- Site Collections
- Custom Code
- Service Pack Updates
- AAM(Alternate Access Mapping)
- Customization (Master pages etc)
SharePoint supports the following upgrade approaches
- In-Place upgrade
- Database Attach upgrade to a new farm
- Read-Only database
- Detach Database
We will see all step by step upgradation using the above options in my future blogs and other tools that are available in the market which can ease our migration process.

Firstly it no more HTML Table based layouts, Now the Layouts are based on Div, we could see that by opening the v4.Master page from the following location - %Program Files%\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\GLOBAL
And the second advantage is content placeholders are the same for both Application and Content Pages, which results in consistent Look and Feel across content pages and Application pages.
SharePoint has a default minimal master page for branding. Minimal.Master page can be found at the following location of your SharePoint installation - %Program Files%\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\GLOBAL
Here are some links on Master pages

MOSS 2007 had strong ECM features and provided Out of Box support for Document Management, Web Content Management, and Records Management, And the new SharePoint 2010 has improved those features by improving overall Document Management and Content Management.
These series of blogs will discuss SharePoint 2010 ECM features and how to use / implement them.
Taxonomy is how you categorize and organize your organization contents. Metadata are everywhere, however most of the organization does not have any strategy in organizing their data. Organizing and Managing Contents are vital part of ECM, as part of the organization’s content management it is imperative to have an organization wide strategy to define and structure the contents.
Though we can implement Taxonomy using MOSS 2007, but it does have its own limitation, such as content types are available only to the site collection under which they are created, which means we cannot use them in another site collection. Site collection scoped Content types always limit reusability and the scope of using them across multiple site collections and across farms. However the new release of SharePoint has overcome these limitations and has better ECM features than its predecessor MOSS 2007.
Managed Metadata Services
Managed metadata service is part of the services that is part of new SharePoint Services based architecture. Management metadata service is nothing but the term store and enables management of enterprise level content types.
The Advantages of MMS:
1. Centralized Term store
2. Can create more than one Services
3. Available across the Enterprise i.e. across Farms , Site Collections
4. Managed Terms
5. Location based Terms
6. Can Import Terms
7. Reusability of terms
8. Copy Terms
9. Merge Terms
10. Deprecate Terms
11. Move Terms

A) There is an open source WCM available for WSS 3.0, more information here http://www.completesharepoint.net/ and http://www.codeplex.com/completesharepoint and A free Sharepoint Framework which can be used for publishing Layouts! details here http://www.spworks.co.uk/arf/default.aspx
This blog entry is kind of WSS VS MOSS and may be useful to you http://blogs.msdn.com/nijain/archive/2008/06/30/wss-as-platform-for-internet-web.aspx

A) Assume you know about the Content Type basically a content type is a reusable collection of settings that are applied to a certain category of content. Content types enable the management of the metadata and behaviors of a document or item type in a centralized, reusable way. Also used for content classification (Taxonomy).Above text taken from the following links and it also discuss about creating Custom Content Typehttp://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc161067.aspx
Check the below PDF for more information about the Custom Content Typeshttp://download.microsoft.com/documents/uk/technet/downloads/technetmagazine/may_08/26_36_Stnd%20D%20ContentTypes_des5.pdf
Creating and Using Content Types in Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 by ted pattsion http://go.microsoft.com/?linkid=5519358
This blog discussion about creating Content Type and association with a workflowContent Types: Part 2 - Creation and Association of Workflows and Document Templates (Republish)and a very good discussion about Content Type can be found herehttp://blogs.msdn.com/jamesway/archive/2008/01/22/content-types-the-little-engine-that-could.aspx
how it is possible, how can i implement the uploading of any documents form the any where in the world.
A) If your intranet site is Hosted with AAM - Alternate Access Mapping (http://blogs.msdn.com/sharepoint/archive/2007/03/06/what-every-sharepoint-administrator-needs-to-know-about-alternate-access-mappings-part-1.aspx), you can allow the user to upload the document to the internet site, which inturn will be your intranet site.Eventually your intranet site is the one which will be hosted in Internet also, so if your users upload any file to specific file in the internet actually the user is uploading to your intranet site. And even you can decide access restriction and about what content should be visible in the internet, this need bit of planning, also remember you need Internet connector license if you need to host your site in internet(check this forum http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepointgeneral/thread/f5329aa7-4dce-4638-940f-42fe32bcb74a)your scenario would be creating Alternate access Mapping to your intranet site to internet site. Say http://yourmachine:33333/ (intranet) will be like http://www.yourcompany.com/, create like this using AAM, this should solve your problem. or you can use SSL VPN for connecting to your intranet through internet, this way its secure and you can also control who can access your intranet and upload files
A) I would suggest you to look at MSDN SharePoint Team Blogs How we did it Series , to learn more about creating and branding MOSS / WSS Internet facing websites

Sharepoint Forum Q & A: Move discussion topics from one discussion board in MOSS to another in WSS 3,0
A) You can save your Discussion board as template and restore the list tempate to your site. While creating the discussion board you can use the new saved Discussion Board template, which should show with the content.Goto Discussion board settings under Permission and Management-> Save Discussion board as template , check Include Content, this should save your discussion board with data.Then upload the template to your wss list templates and create the discussion board from this template.
Is there a way to duplicate entire site into new site in the same server? (Not backup/restore)
Someone built a site, and it works fine. What I need to do is to duplicate that site to several different names. That's all.
Using template, I can duplicate one node, but not entire site.
A) You can use Web Package feature of Sharepoint Designer, Only Caveat in this approach is, you cannot save list data, subsites and permissions. Check this link "Export or import a Web package" - http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepointdesigner/HA100819231033.aspx
or by using Content Deployment and migration API - http://blogs.technet.com/stefan_gossner/archive/2007/08/30/deep-dive-into-the-sharepoint-content-deployment-and-migration-api-part-2.aspx
BTW, Try this SharePoint Content Deployment Wizard http://www.codeplex.com/SPDeploymentWizard , Check the source code for Reference Implementation
A) In SharePoint, Documents (Document Library) are actually Stored in your SQL Server. And We need to know how WEBDAV UNC's work in sharepoint, Check this Whitepaper -
Understanding and Troubleshooting the SharePoint Explorer View http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=C523AC7A-5724-48BE-B973-641E805588F4&displaylang=en. This WhitePaper discuss in detail about windows WEBDAV and FPRPC protocol , windows WEBDAV Client and Explorer View, should be good starting point to understand WEBDAV and Explorer View

- Sharepoint Tips : How To Open Word in the same IE browser windows(and other office files)
- Launch Windows Explorer.
- Tools > Folder Options and click on the File Types tab.
- goto “Registered File types“ and find “DOC - Microsoft Word Document 97-2003“ extenstion and select it.
- Click “Advanced...“ button at the bottom of the dialog.
- Check the “Browse in same window“ checkbox.
IE will prompt for whether you want to open or save the file, if you choose to open then the document is opened in IE and not in Word. To avoid this dialog box you should uncheck "Confirm open after download". Now the file will be automatically downloaded in your browser and will display in the same browser window.

After Ten years, this time my company pursued me to take PMP certification, so I attended the preparation course for PMP. For three months I slogged like any thing for preparing for the exam but this time I was moved to MOSS 2007(SharePoint) Projects. Due to this I was travelling a lot for the implementation of MOSS 2007 for various clients in India. So my PMP certification still remains as a dream.
Finally late 2006, I decided to take the exam but again years of experience I added to my profile was a spoil sport, really I don’t know whether the certification will help in long run but I determined to became certified professional. In June 1,2006, I took my MCP Exam Exam 70–229: Designing and Implementing Databases with Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Enterprise Edition and passed it. This really helped me to analyze my strengths and weakness in SQLServer(I strongly believe Only technical interviews, Exams like this will help IT professional to analyze their strength and weakness). Latter started preparing for other exams due to my busy schedule the initiative took back seat (felt like ending this statement with word dream but could not help it ;-)
This year again I am contemplating to be a Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS) before end of september, so I took my Exam 70–528: TS: Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 - Web-Based Client Development, on September 8th 2007 and passed the exam. Although my real time experience helped me a lot to take the exam but still my 10 days effort on preparation was the other reason. The exam is quite easy to pass, so if you are interested in this exam simply go ahead and take it.
To prepare for the exam you can start here http://www.microsoft.com/learning/exams/70-528.mspx
Some time later I will try to provide resources and links at this space.

If you try to save any of your large Site as Template, you might get the following error
"The site is too large to save as a template. The size of a template cannot exceed 10485760 bytes. "
This can be solved by just increasing the maximum size of the Template
stsadm -o setproperty -propertyname max-template-document-size -propertyvalue 20971520
Note: 20971520 bytes = 20 MB, Maximum Size you can set is 500 MB
