Functionality and Ports

  Asked By: Cyrus    Date: Sep 28    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 697

My SharePoint site seemed to stop working fully and I am scratching my head as to why. For example if I am in a list and attempt to select the drop down list to View Item, Edit Item, Delete Item, Alert Me, or Approve/reject. The arrow appears and the frame around the item appears however the drop down list does not. Is this perhaps a problem with a port being blocked?

Probably not. What changes occurred on your server recently?

I don’t know really. It is a server that has many fingers stirring the pot. Waiting on new hardware to create an entirely new portal from scratch to turn madness into controlled chaos.

We always have had two virtual servers one for internal and one for external access. It always happened this way on the external virtual server. I did read your post about never assigning IP’s to a virtual server so I unassigned the IP’s and inserted the headers in their place. I always thought this was an ISA problem  however maybe it is something different. Another oddity is the left hand navigation bar is twice as wide as it should be. It was a problem only on the external vs when accessing it from inside the WAN but now is a problem on the internal link as well.

Can assigning the IP permanently screw something up like editing a page in FP 2002?

Not sure on the IP thing screwing something up permanently, but I do know that using PF02 will cause you significant problems. Did you mean FP03?

No I know FP 2002 will mess things up but was not sure the IP stuff would break something too. Thanks for the help I just wanted to see if it rang a bell with anyone.

Microsoft told some time back that the #1 PSS
root cause for a huge number of reported problem  symptoms with
SharePoint Products and Technologies is assigning an IP address to the
IIS Web site  extended as a SharePoint Virtual Server. Always use All
Unassigned for all SharePoint sites (at least until the SP comes and
hopefully fixes this problem).

There are unexpected consequences when the virtual server’s properties are modified after WSS extends the VS, so I can’t really say whether or not this caused any problems.

I finally figured out my problem  with this so I decided that it would be worthwhile to post.

I changed a setting in IE for the zone that the site  was in. Under “ActiveX controls and plug-ins” the feature “Binary and script behaviors” was set to Disable. Setting this to Enable fixed the problem.
