Anyone an idea, what the simpelst way is to update a meta column for a certain document (in doc.lib.) ? Maybe trough webservice input parameter doc. url and meta col + value.

Can this be done based on default webservices from WSS ?

Not that I know of. I’m booked solid until January at this point.

I have the exact same question. Do the folks in the Administrator group on the SERVER have the same permissions as those that are listed in the SharePoint Administrator group.

If so, is there a way around this. We have a highly sensitive site on our portal  and we only want to allow the three SharePoint Administrators access to it and not the Administrators listed on the box. Please advise.

install WSS SP2 -

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/892295/ - is included in the WSS SP2 patch.

Administrators on the local box will have the equivalent access. You need to remove domain admins or whomever from the box(es) if you do not want them to have admin priviledges on that site.

What am I doing wrong?

Try …

“C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Service Extensions\60\bin\stsadm.exe” –o set property –propertyname denymachineadminaccess –propertyvalue 1

Leave the quotes in there. It can’t find STSADM which is in the path indicated above.

yes this is usually the first thing i do.. add "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Service Extensions\60\bin\" and "c:\Program Files\SharePoint Portal Server\Bin" as a PATH variable in windows -
Click start menu
Right-click on "My Computer" to select Properties.
Click the "Advanced" tab.
Click the "Environment Variable" button.
Scroll down the "System variables" list to the "Path" variable.
Double click on "Path"
Press the "End" key
Type in the path's listed above (with a semicolon separator) ;
Click "OK"
Click "OK" to close the System Properties window.

dont forget to restart IIS in order for this to take effect as well!
