Central Admin and MySites Problem

  Asked By: Tyson    Date: Feb 06    Category: MOSS    Views: 1292

MOSS Farm with two web front end server and an application server
running indexing and Excel services. Tried changing Central admin from
web front end to the applcation server using the ShatrePoint
Technologies Wizzard and it added Central Admin site to the Applcation
server but it still shows on the web front end. If I try using the
SharePoint Technology Wizzard to remove Central Admin from the web
front end the Advnaced button is greyed out.

Second Problem:

Individual MySites are available to the owner but the Public Profile
page gives a 404 Error. We can go to the Shared documents folder for
an individual's My Site.

MySites must be specifically blocked for each user or group that is added to the
site. Are you trying to allow or disallow MySites?

Answer #2    Answered By: Ranu Badhan     Answered On: Feb 06

Mysites are allowed. Personnel can get to their My site but the Profile page
that others should se throws a 404 error.

the second question: when I get 404s on things that I know are there,
it usually turns out to be a bad master page reference.

Not sure where the master page reference would be. I'm thinking the problem
is beieng caused by there being two Central Admin sites.

I doubt the two issues are related.

You can provision or unprovision central admin on any server using psconfig.exe
with the parameter "-cmd adminvs". See
technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc263093(office.12).aspx for details.
There is no longer the same issue there used to be with the server running
central administration being irreplaceable, and you can now run central
administration on multiple servers. This is important because content deployment
requires central administration to be configured on a web front end server.

The profile page is stored in a separate site collection (the "My Sites host")
from the My Sites (each of which is a separate site collection). As a farm
administrator, you should be able to get into the settings page of that site
collection by adding _layouts/settings.aspx to the URL of the My Sites host.
(The "My Site" link on any SharePoint page also points to a page in the My Sites

Once you are in the My Sites host settings, you can look at whether there is an
issue with the profile page e.g. being linked to a master page that has not been
published. This is unlikely though unless you have had someone going in
attempting to customize the environment.

You should also check the permissions in personalization services in the SSP to
make sure the users have all the relevant permissions.
