Deployment of Resource files (*.resx) to App_GlobalResources under SharePoint
This is a continuation from Deployment of Theme and Resource files Resource File Deployment (Resx) The second item was deploying Resource files to the App_GlobalResource directory present as a subdirectory under each IIS site for each SharePoint Web Application zone. Remember that you can have multiple IIS Sites for each “Logical” SharePoint Web Application. The other requirement we had was that each Web Application needed to have its own set of resource files and were to be deployed and scoped as ......

Deployment of Theme and Resource files via Feature / Timer Jobs
Recently, we had a deployment scenario where we needed to deploy a custom theme and some resource files (resx) to the Farm and the Web Application zones respectively. Theme Deployment via Feature / Timer Job For the first feature, deployment of a theme, we initially went down the path assuming that we could scope the feature at Farm, and SharePoint would call the FeatureInstalled method in our Feature Receiver. Unfortunately, this all worked in development on our single machine environments. When ......

Learning another language…

We’ve been bombarded by Rosetta Stone commercials, magazine adds, and airport kiosks.

I can’t say I picked up much from High School Spanish – in fact, mostly picked it up pickin peaches on a farm.

Here’s a place you can get your feet wet for free…

There have been many times that I’ve been handed a SQL instance that doesn’t allow me to do much with it even though the IT Admin for the machine have indicated they’ve done the install and your AD account is part of the Local Admin group. By default, in SQL 2008 local admin’s are not part of the sysadmin role – unless you’re running in single user mode. So, this article has a quick HOWTO on getting access back so you can go on your merry sysadmin way… ......

How about an upgrade - and don’t turn off Custom Errors..
Here I am just doing some banking and low and behold the bank I work with seems to be rolling out some “Pilot” stuff. From the error below, I quickly determine that they’re way overdue for moving to a later version of the Framework (I mean 1.1 come on!!!). The second thing is, why the heck aren’t you trapping these errors instead of giving me the “debug” mode view that only a developer should see!! And before you write your web.config, at least make sure it’s XML compliant.. How do you get the amateurs ......

Don’t get caught with long Account Names!!
This has bitten me a couple of times. This error surfaced yesterday when running a scripted install with psconfig.exe – the error that appears in the log is: LookupAccountName failed to get the SID for account <domain>\LONG AC NAME > 20 chars When setting up SharePoint, we usually have a bunch of service accounts that generally are setup by different teams that manage the Active Directory accounts – well, that’s how it should work, but that’s another story. Many times organizations will ......
