SPS integration with .NET

  Asked By: Palash    Date: Feb 18    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 679

My company is just now beginning to explore SPS; we've got it installed
on a Win2K machine and are playing with importing web parts and indexing
content sources.

All of our servers are running Win2K at this time; we're considering
upgrading to .NET after it's settled in for awhile. My question is: How
do SPS and .NET relate to each other? Can SPS run on a .NET server at
this time? If so, where does one obtain .NET server - is it still in
beta? Our network admin is under the impression that it has not been
commercially released yet. What differences would there be between a
Win2K server and a .NET server as far as running SPS (other than the
obvious one of different development environments)?

If any of you have experience with running these two systems together,
I'd appreciate thoughts and comments.

.NET is not release yet. SPS v1 does not run  on it. SPS v1 will not run
on it in the future. The next version of .NET server  will have IIS6 and
SPS v2 will run on it...

I think .net server  is slated for a feb 2003 release, so your system guy is
correct.... As far as how sps  handles on it... I'm curious to know the
answer to that as well...

Yoy can write your current web  parts in .net, as long you as you set the web
part to an external source.. (ie point toward your .aspx page)
