Issues after restoring sharepoint 2007 farm
Dear all, Please advise on examination and handling of the issues we faced after restoring sharepoint farm. After the unsuccessful update of WSS3.0 with SP3 we decided to recreate sharepoint farm with the existing content. The following actions were performed: 1. Uninstallation of WSS3.0 and installation of Microsoft Sharepoint Search Server Express 2008 without any notifications or issues. New Central Admin, Sharepoint Config, Shared Services and other things were created successfully. 2. Creating new sharepoint applications with new content databases. 3. Deleting content database and attaching old ones by stsadm: stsadm -o deletecontentdb -url http://myapplication:port –databasename newdatabase -databaseserver sqlsrv stsadm -o addcontentdb -url http://myapplication:port -databasename oldcontentdatabase -databaseserver sqlsrv All our three web applications were created in the same way. 4. Deployment of custom solutions. All applications are working fine at the first glance, but some strange issues occurred: 1. Some pages and files are not accessible causing 404 error. For example, core.css storing at _styles/core.css. Attempt to open it through SPD 2007 get: “Server error: The URL ‘/_styles/core.css’ is invalid. It may refer to a nonexistent file or folder, or refer to a valid file or folder that is not in the current Web” 2. Forms and view pages of custom library are also inaccessible. SPD message: “soap:ServerServer was unable to process request. ---> The file https://serverurl/web/Libname/Forms/DispForm.aspx does not exist.” 3. SPQuery, working in some webparts, returns null collections 4. An application page displays error in SPListItem.SystemUpdate() method: “c:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\web server extensions\12\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS\AppFolder\Apppage.aspx(162): error CS0117: "Microsoft.SharePoint.SPRoleAssignment" does not contain the definition for "SystemUpdate" in System.Web.Compilation.AssemblyBuilder.Compile()” 5. Sharepoint search returns results only in one application. Please can anybody help in solving these issues? Thank you very much in advance.
