The schema version (188.8.131.52) of the database sps_content_db on MOSS
I have installed the other day two patched:
Security Update for Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 x64 Edition (KB934525)http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=667335DD-DF2E-4F14-A130-5758701BE055&displaylang=en
Security Update for Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 x64 (KB937832)http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=1D319164-D133-4493-BE27-1AEDA62362C4&displaylang=en
... which you can read about in here:
Description of the security update for Windows SharePoint Services 3.0: October 9, 2007
The point is that after reset to the Server I got this error in the Event Log:
The schema version (184.108.40.206) of the database spscontentdb on XSQLMOSS is not consistent with the expected database schema version (220.127.116.11) on XMOSS. Connections to this database from this server have been blocked to avoid data loss. Upgrade the web front end or the content database to ensure that these versions match.
This error was the "only" explanation of why the SharePoint Portal , and SharePoint Admin Site wouldn't run/start :'(
After a few google-ing and not finding any thing I had to find the wheel by my self
Ok, the solution is that for each relevant DB in the EventLog you should go to the Versions table in the DBs look for the schema version which is "wrong" and update it to the "correct" one.
The point is that each time you apply a patch to the WSS/MOSS, the WSS/MOSS "randomly" auto-increments , in our case it was in the "small version".
And , NO, you can't install the patch on the SQL Server - Ahh, yes, I forgot to mention the fact that this is a Small Farm: On one server there's the MOSS (with Index and search service) , and on the other there's the SQL Server which didn't get the patch version.
I just came accross a question in the VisualStudio newsgroups about vista and VC++ 6.0, so I decided to add this link:

SOA and Business Processes Conference
For those of us who are going to the Microsoft SOA and Business Processes Conference , in Redmond next week running from the October 29th to November 2nd, It looks like the final agenda is now available at the conference website.
כן , אהה , זאת תמונה שאני כבר כמה ימים ( כמעט שבועות ) שאני שרוצה להעלות לבלוג , אבל , כל פעם שכחתי לחבר את הנייד (טלפון) לנייד (מחשב) כדי לשלוף את התמונה
אז הינה - המלך
העבודה מול רשות שדות התעופה (רש"ת) השתלמה רק בשביל הרגע הקטן הזה שהיה ב 03-10-2007 ב 08:43 בבוקר . כל מה שרציתי דקות ספורות לפי כן זה כוס קפה וקווראסון (חמאה) כדי להתעורר כמו שצריך עם הקפה השני שלי לבוקר ( תמיד שניים אחד ב 06:00 ואחד אח"כ בעבודה ). מה אני אגיד , שלחתי לנטאשה (שדרך אגב פתחה פה בלוג , ואנחנו רבים על תמונת רקע , ככל הנראה תמונה מהודו ) משהו כמו 3 פעמים את התמונה ב SMS עד ששאלתי אותה "נו קיבלת את ה SMS ?" - או במילים אחרות וואווה-וויווה Wawawawiwa
לא , עדיין לא פתחתי חברת השקעות, אבל , למי שחשב שהשם עדלי הוא יוצא דופן , אז הינה, גם אני רוצה מכונית חברה אשר נושאת את השם שלי , ולא עדיין אין לי מושג מה זה החברה הזאת =) , אבל אני מוכן להשקיע בה - יש לה שם ענק =)
התמונה הזו צולמה ליד משרד החוץ בירושליים .
The name Michele Leroux Bustamante (AKA "Das Blonde") always reminds me of the of the Beatles song "Michelle (ma belle)". I AM A GREAT FAN of both her book learning WCF as well as her boss's book Programming WCF Services. Well it seems that meeting the person was greater ( for me ) than hearing her WCF Webcast Series. Well what can I say - I bought the book, for two reasons at first: 1. a CardSpace ( with WCF ) book, 2. the webcast series was great. But now I have A 3rd one, the benefit of having, my own, personal edition, with signature, copy of the book ( and a photo of us both in the Presentation Resources: Tel Aviv User Group(s)) =)
All I've asked for a "small autograph" and here's what I got ( and I quote , no I didn't dictate her ) : "Dear Adlai , Very nice to meet you. You are the smartest guy in the room :) enjoy the book! Michelle"
1. A great thanks goes to Maor David for taking our picture =)
2. You are more then invited to see her recent post CardSpace: How Personal Cards Protect Users
Paul Andrew has just started a new What Workflow Activities Work For You? survey on Windows Workflow Foundation (WF) to help Microsoft decide how to invest and prioritize their future activities. They have rolled out a survey about on current and future usage of WF Activities, and the areas where people would like to see.
Some of us ( not me , i'm more a SSRS ) still use Crystal Reports as a platform for reporting :'( , so if you're looking for the runtime ( without installing VS ), here are the links:
Crystal Reports for .NET Framework 2.0 Redistributable Package (x86)http://support.businessobjects.com/communityCS/FilesAndUpdates/cr_net_2005_mergemodules_mlb_x86.zip.asp
Crystal Reports for .NET Framework 2.0 Redistributable Package (x64)http://support.businessobjects.com/communityCS/FilesAndUpdates/cr_net_2005_mergemodules_mlb_x64.zip.asp
Crystal Reports for .NET Framework 2.0 Redistributable Package (ia64)http://support.businessobjects.com/communityCS/FilesAndUpdates/cr_net_2005_mergemodules_mlb_ia64.zip.asp
From Business Objects' WebSite comes:
Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2005 Walkthroughs
...which in the end helped me in the x64 bit by specifying that
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Crystal Reports\CRRedist\X64\CRRedist2005_x64.msi
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\SDK\v2.0\BootStrapper\Packages\CrystalReports\CRRedist2005_x86
Which helped me in the following x64 problem:
An error has occurred while attempting to load the Crystal Reports runtime.
Either the Crystal Reports registry key permissions are insufficient or the Crystal Reports runtime is not installed correctly.
Please install the appropriate Crystal Reports redistributable (CRRedist*.msi) containing the correct version of the Crystal Reports runtime (x86, x64, or Itanium) required. Please go to http://www.businessobjects.com/support for more information. -------------------
It seems that the Enterprise Library is alive ( and Tom Hollander is taking care of that - What do you want to see in EntLib vNext? ). Any way most of us are waiting impatiently to the new release of VS2008 ( and now also to the equal EntLib 4.0 vNext ). For those who haven't yet got their hands dirty in LINQ, david maor ( BTW great BG ) has made a VERY nice article on Query XML using XLINQ, I have a feeling he'll do wonders on the subject (LINQ).
The title might labeled as a bit of a double meaning, but lately the "Express" word means Free of Charge , "RIP version", of a commercial Product which is used on a large scale and in wide use. A few examples are the SqlServer 2005 Express, Visual Studio 2005 Express, Visual Studio 2008 Express and even Oracle Database 10g Express Edition.
Well It seems that AmberPoint has joined the community of the "Express", in order to push it's product in the growing market - AmberPoint Express :: Free Developer's Tool
AmberPoint Express is a cost-effective means for Web service developers to incrementally measure, debug and fine-tune the performance and functionality of their Web services. Versions of AmberPoint Express are available for both Java and the Microsoft .NET Framework.
If you're a SOA developer , whether a .NET, BizTalk or J2EE developer, the AmberPoint product might be already known to you. Some of use maybe familiar with the product from reference in the Microsoft ESB Guidance CTP3. In the end, Amberpoint is the product which helps us (even in BizTalk ) in dealing with the "Run-time Repository" aspect.
AmberPoint Express is seamlessly integrated with the developer's experience. It automatically configures the management system for each Web service completed by the developer. And it requires no coding changes to the Web services themselves.
- Performance Monitoring: View Web service performance in real time with easy-to-digest charts for response time, throughput and SOAP fault counts
- Analysis: Gain a quick understanding of performance bottlenecks and errors from drilling down into SOAP messages from performance graphs
- Diagnosis: Inspect SOAP messages for content, faults and errors in an easy-to-read fashion to understand and debug anomalous Web service behavior
- Testing: Resubmit messages from history or auto-generate new SOAP messages based on WSDL to fine-tune Web services
- Integrated with Visual Studio .NET for point-and-click management of Web services built on the Microsoft .NET Framework
Sharepoint as a platform has many brothers and sisters ( who share concept or code ) - one of them is CRM 4.0 which is about to be relased along side the same time as the "2008" products ( Win/VS/SQL ) . Fortunate for us Philip Richardson ( Microsoft CRM Lead Program Manager ) has posted a "Info" The Titan Project about to expect from the product ( from his as an Info source )
Shawn Burke : Discussing the Release of .NET Source Code
- are they trying to get more official then ScottGu ? it seems so. any way you need silverlight to see the video.
The BizTalk Server Team Blog have just relased a new video with Anush Kumar on the use of RFID in the restaurant industry to better manage the business and improve customer experience.
The BizTalk Server 2006 R2 provide a scalable and extensible platform for development, deployment, and management of rich RFID and sensor solutions.
If you'd like to know more about RFID , here's the RFID Team Blog.
Scott Guthrie ( AKA ScottGU ) just announced the release of the source code of the .NET Framework 3.5 and Visual Studio 2008 :
- Base Class Libraries
- etc. ....
- Windows Forms
The source code will be released under the Microsoft Reference License (MS-RL).
Open Source is a GREAT THING, and could help A LOT to the community.
Most of us remember that we've first heard it at the MS Redmond @ UserGroup near you which was this April.
