Installing BizTalk Server 2006 R2 SharePoint 1057 system error

October 30, 2008

When setting up WSS so you can do a full install of BizTalk, you may get an error similar to “System Error 1057 while trying to query service SPTimer”.  For me, this occured while using the Configure Administrative Virtual Server section of Central Administration.  I was using a local (non AD) service account that I had created.  The problem is corrected if you make sure you enter “domain\user name” or “machine name\user name” format.  Not easy to correlate this error description to the actual issue.

October 26, 2008

In order to use BizTalk with CRM 4.0 you had to tweak the old v3.0 adapter, while it wasn’t a complete solution, you were at least able to connect the two together! So what’s the news today? As of today The Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006 adapter for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 is now available at no additional charge!

This adapter has the same functionality as the previously released 3.0 adapter, with the following updates:

Supports both 32-bit and 64-bit deployments of Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0
Supports form-based authentication
Supports multi-tenancy

With this adapter, you can integrate Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 with any other non-Microsoft business application using the BizTalk server mapping capabilities, which allows you to discover and use the schema of any of the Microsoft Dynamics CRM entities.

Microsoft Search Server 2008 e Google Search Appliance

October 25, 2008

Nella competition tra Microsoft Search Server 2008 e Google Search Appliance non è possibile utilizzare come punto di forza la funzionalità di ricerca in quanto pressoché identica.

La chiave per vincere in questo tipo di competizione è puntare sul costo, sull’integrazione con i prodotti Microsoft e nello specifico Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 e sulla scalabilità del prodotto. E’ possibile utilizzare inizialmente la versione gratuita per poi effettuare l’aggiornamento alla versione full senza dover reinstallare o migrare dati, inoltre si alla possibilità di scaricare connettori per i FileNet IBM e i documenti EMC gratuitamente (Indexing Connectors) oltre a poter favorire di un’ampia serie di connettori sviluppati da partner per svariati usi (Federated Search Connectors).
 
Nel seguente articolo si può trovare una serie di informazioni utili per approfondire le caratteristiche di Microsoft Search Server 2008.
 
Microsoft: The Latest Disruptor In Enterprise Search
 
Inoltre Microsoft ha acquisito da poco FAST Search and Transfer implementando così un ottimo sistema di ricerca per intranet e internet così come citato a questa pagina (dove si può anche trovare utili informazioni sui servizi per i partner relativi alla Microsoft Search Community):
 
“FAST ACQUISTION COMPLETE!
With the completion of the acquisition of FAST Search and Transfer, Microsoft is now the clear market leader in enterprise search. Microsoft is now the only vendor who offers a comprehensive portfolio of search solutions: at the entry-level, Search Server Express delivers enterprise-class search capabilities as a free download; in the mid-tier, SharePoint offers search integrated with other core workloads; and at the high-end, FAST ESP provides best-in-class capabilities for the most demanding search applications in both internal and customer facing scenarios.”
(https://www.quickstartmicrosoftsearch.com/login/signin.aspx?ReturnUrl=%2f)
 
In ultimo allego la pagina relativa alle Success Stories di Enterprise Search dove si può evincere l’effettivo beneficio dell’implementazione del suddetto prodotto oltre al link dove poter scaricare la versione gratuita da poter provare.
