Replicate Content Across Networks

  • Replicate Content Across Networks j.strugnell

    A client is asking for a custom application to be created and deployed within the corporate intranet. Part of the requirements are to publish some of the content also available on the internet site. Both sites are built on SharePoint 2007 but they are on different farms and on different networks. Can the Content Deployment API (and associated tools) handle moving selected content across networks with no direct connectivity? Can we use web services? Has anybody done this sort of thing? If so what approaches have you taken?



  • I did this back in the SP 2003 days using web services with great success. So much so, we haven't migrated the solution to use the content deployment api yet. You would still need to be able to communicate betweeen the two farms though.

  • Can the new Content organizer feature of SharePoint 2010 copy content across web sites, site collections or sub sites? It's activated at the web level it seems to be scoped to that level only - no ancestors, siblings or children seem to be available in the Target Location.

  • to select a different (narrower) default scope, and I need the Advanced Search page to default to searching all content. Can anyone help me out? Thanks! ... information. This only happens with the All Content scope. There are other scopes which are also supersets of smaller scopes, and these can be selected together with their sub-scopes without problems. Also, the All Content scope works fine when used by itself. There are no relevant messages I can find in the ULS logs. I know that this is a silly search to do and don't expect it to be done

UPDATE 08/05/10: I have been doing some further... are not correctly picked up by the search index. All the content is indexed but the sites themselves are not associated to the correct contentclass. Prior to SP2 the site collections (SPSite's) are listed in the index under the contentclass:STS_Site and the sites (SPWeb's) are contentclass:STS_Web.

  • I was working on a project to provide Up Button functionality for the list view web part, and ran across this functionality in the Reusable Content popup. I opened reflector and set to work to reverse the engineer the code for use on any list view. While doing so I created an error on the Reusable Content page (I believe it is called ReusableContentPicker.aspx but I am away from my VM and can't check.) and deleted the list view web part that was displaying the Reusable Content list from the page in web part maintenance mode. Not enough coffee that morning (>_<) Now when I load the page

  • I'd like to turn off Content Approval, for all libraries, (Page, Document, Images) once, at a Site Collection level and, hopefully, it will be automatically set across the entire site collection. Having it off helps during the development of a Publishing Site. Once all the content/web parts are in then it would be good to turn it back on before going to UAT/Prod. Having approval workflows start in dev is just a waste of time. I'm working in SP2010, but MOSS 2007 is still relevant as I have sites in both platforms.

  • I know you can backup site collections with stsadm -o backup, and you can backup sites with stsadm -o export. But what's the best way to copy a list? I've tried to use the save as a list template and include content, but not all the columns came across. For example I had a lookup to another column in the same list but the data was totally messed up. only about 10% of the values were correct. I heard this is supposed to be available in 2010, but what's the best way to copy a list in 2007.

  • When a new server is added to a farm will SharePoint automatically synchronise the machine key such that view state will work across the farm, or is a manual operation required?

  • Is there any way in SharePoint 2010 to get the Distinct values of a property across all users? For example, I want a list of all Departments in the Profile Store. In SQL I can do SELECT DISTINCT(PropertyVal) FROM [ProfileDB].[dbo].[UserProfileValue] WHERE PropertyID = 14 but accessing the SQL Database is a big no-no of course, so I wonder if there is something in the object model? Note that accessing the User Information List on an SPSite is not good enough, as only a fraction of all users is in that list. I want to get it directly from the Profile Store. I do not want to loop through

  • that not really matter? I ask because I can change the content type of the nonworking one to use the same template as the working one and it will load just fine. UPDATE: I tried changing the type and even changed the content type and redeployed the entire solution. There is no error message but it does not load the rendering template from the controltemplates folder. I can see that it is there and I can see that the content type should be loading it, but it does not. The other one as I said laods and works correctly.
