Problems with Default Document-values

  Asked By: Fernando    Date: Jan 20    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 904

I'm having problems with a default document under SPS 2003. Since the normal way
of changing a default document via IIS is not possible because of the ISAPI
filter, I found out from the SDK that it is possible to insert additional
default documents. The WelcomeNames-table under <SPS PORTAL>_SITE-database has
the following structure:

LeafName: Page name
Rank: Priority for the page

I created a test.aspx, added a new row to the database with values test.aspx, 1.
After resetting IIS and SPS I got a "404 NOT FOUND" from SPS. I added
'test.aspx' to be excluded under managed paths and now SPS goes directly to
default.aspx without even trying test.aspx.

Finally, I removed rest of the pages from WelcomeNames-table and now all I get
is 404. The test.aspx page works when accessing it directly.

Anyone have any ideas what might cause this? Should the test.aspx be placed
under C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server
Extensions\6\Template\LCID\? Or have I overlooked some configuration switch
somewhere? Modifying the default.aspx seems to be the only option so far.
