setup SPS2003

  Asked By: Haresh    Date: Mar 16    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1005

Does anyone have more info on this?

What I am trying to do is to create a similar setup of SPS2003 as I had in
SPS2001, whereas, the name of the server is followed by the workspace name i.e.
http://servername/workspacename Can I make a similar setup on SPS2003? What I
want to do is to create a portal site from the SharePoint Portal Server Admin
section (not a top level web site which is different and part of SharePoint
Services section of the Administration). In order to do this, I need to first
create a virtual server in IIS (which is referred to as a website). When I go
to create a web site in IIS Manager I have to use a port number that is
different than the default web site i.e. a port other than 80. When I do this
the web site is accessible as http://servername:portnumber for example
http://servername:81 So then when I go back to SharePoint Central
Administration to create a portal site the web site is available to me but I
still must use http://servername:portnumber I cannot name it as
http://servername/portalname I have tried to configure alternate access
settings and put in a different name but I get an error that slashes can't be
used.

First of, can this be done?
If so, has anyone done this successfully and how?

Sorry to have not followed up more completely. I have verified with our
systems admin - the following is the exact procedure to follow if your
box is functioning correctly. There are a few steps to the application
pool setting, but I doubt this is your problem.

1. Register DNS name/IP address.
2. create  Virtual Server in IIS administration.
3. Associate application pool with VS.
4. Enable new VS and create VS in sharepoint  Administration, connecting
to the new IIS VS.

Note that it could be I am not understanding your request. The above
procedure will allow you to create independent Sharepoint Virtual
Servers all running on the same machine. So, if I wanted two separate
Portal Servers, one called sps1.missouri.edu and the other called
sps2.missouri.edu, I would follow the above steps. If you are simply
interested in creating two workspaces called Sharepoint/workspace1 and
Sharepoint/workspace2, then you don't need Virtual Servers for that.

I am having the same problem to which solutions have been suggested,
and I have followed the manual.

I have succeeded in bringing up one SPS on a machine that also uses
SQL server  (this means that there is one Central Administration on a
randomly assigned port  number which then gets me to the WSS Central
Admin and also the SPS Central Admin). After that I have succeeded
in bringing up one portal  Site on the default  virtual web  server on
IIS. I have also succeeded in creating WSS sites under the Portal
Site.

Using the same Portal Admin, I have tried to bring up a second
Portal Site, but I am not successful. By this I mean set up another
Virtual Server on IIS (I have tried to do it with
both port 80 and another port, e.g. 81), and then created the Portal
Site from Central Admin the same way I created the first portal site.
I get the message that the second portal site  has been created
successfully, but when I attempt to go to the home page of the
second portal site, I get an error  message, and not even the admin
page for the second Portal.

Maybe I am not understanding correctly.

1) Can I have only one portal site per portal Server? (The
documentation suggests otherwise, and the system goes through the
process of creating a second Portal site, but I cannot access the
second portal site even from the manage Portal sites using
the URL provided there)
2) Has anyone personally created a second Portal Site on a Portal
Server with SQL server or with MSDE successfully  who could share
their experience of what exactly they did?

To answer your questions below:

1. Yes, it is possible to create  multiple portal  sites on one server  as
long as you setup  multiple virtual  directories. The virtual directories
will have to have either different port  numbers, host header names or IP
addresses.
2. Yes, I have been successful creating multiple portal sites. Currently
I have 5 portal sites running on one server. My setup is that I have 5
different IP addresses, 1 for each portal site.
