At last! Many of you already tried the first 20 application templates (Site Admin-templates), while the other 20 were just released (Server Admin-templates).

"Site admin templates are custom templates that are easy for any SharePoint site administrator to install into the template gallery without requiring server administration access.

Server admin templates were created as site definitions, enabling tighter integration and enhanced functionality within the Windows SharePoint Services platform. They require a server administrator to install. "

Virtual PC 2007 availible for download!

February 20th, 2007 by Tobias Zimmergren

You’ve probably seen this in a bunch of other blogposts already, but if you havn’t:

It’s time for an upgrade of those horrible VPC’s ;) Go get VPC 2007 from http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/winfamily/virtualpc/default.mspx

Quoted from the Microsoft website:
"Use Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 to run multiple operating systems at the same time on the same physical computer. Switch between virtual machines with the click of a button. Use virtual machines to run legacy applications, provide support, train users, and enhance quality assurance.

Virtual PC lets you create separate virtual machines on your Windows desktop, each of which virtualizes the hardware of a complete physical computer. Use virtual machines to run operating systems such as MS-DOS, Windows, and OS/2. You can run multiple operating systems at once on a single physical computer and switch between them as easily as switching applications�instantly, with a mouse click. Virtual PC is perfect for any scenario in which you need to support multiple operating systems, whether you use it for tech support, legacy application support, training, or just for consolidating physical computers."

Configure aliases for your web-applications in MOSS 2007

February 14th, 2007 by Tobias Zimmergren

Alias?
Alias! Say your web-server is named myServer1 and you want users to access it via the browser with
http://companyintranet instead.
What you need to do is � obviously � change in the DNS so that the address myServer1 points to companyintranet, but you also need to make some configurations in the Central Admin, as shown below.

If you want to change an alias for a MOSS 2007 web-application all you need to do is a setting in Central Administration as per these steps:

1)      Navigate to your Central Administration

2)      On the Operations-page, choose Alternate Access Mappings in the Global Configuration section.

3)      In Alternate Access Mapping Collection you click Change Alternate Access Mapping Collection

4)      Choose your web-application in the webpage dialog (mine is called SharePoint � 80)

5)      Click Edit Outbound URLs. Make sure the web application is listen in the Default Zone. Now you can add aliases for Default, Intranet, Internet, Custom and Extranet.

6)      If you want to add an incoming url, choose Add Incoming URLs then in the New default zone URL protocol, host and port type the URL for the server you want to map to the webapplication. Example: http://yourserver:port

7)      Go go go!

 

Hope it helps someone out there in their quest for going into production with MOSS 2007 =)

"One of the most frequently asked questions about SharePoint that we’ve received since RTM is, "Where is the [this] or [that] Language Pack?" While we still cannot provide exact dates due to variables in our localization and release management processes for different languages, I’m very pleased (and relieved since I’ll hopefully get fewer questions now) to be able to provide the estimated release timeframes listed below for when a specific Language Pack will be available on our Microsoft Volume License Services (MVLS) and eOpen websites."

"Connecting with people is the key to your happiness and success. Your outgoing, action-oriented personality is something everyone who knows you can count on.

I’ve had little time to blog, sorry

As you can see it’s more than a month ago since my last post, and that post promised a few posts to come from the course in .DK.

However I’ve been really busy (70h/week). But now it has started to clear out and I can once again see the horizon.

This time I promise that I will post something intesesting soon. Feel free to comment this post with ideas and questions about what you want to see, not always easy to come up with a good concept to blog about.

Cheers
