SQL Server error log is too big

April 27, 2012

Every time when SQL server starts a new error log file is added a Current log file. But if server is running from long time the size of current log file increases too much. Some time it become so heavy that takes long time to open. Searching a information in a big error log also take long time and difficult rather than a small file. So how can we start a new error log file without restarting the server? For this purpose SQL server have a stored procedure: sp_cycle_errorlog. It takes no parameter and can be executed from any database as below.

EXEC sp_cycle_errorlog

Each time we execute this stored procedure a new error log file is added as current log file and if the number of log files exceeds maximum than the oldest files is deleted from list.

The Orchard Project

April 25, 2012

Please visit our website at http://orchardproject.net for the most current information about this project.
Orchard is a free, open source, community-focused project aimed at delivering applications and reusable components on the ASP.NET platform. It will create shared components for building ASP.NET applications and extensions, and specific applications that leverage these components to meet the needs of end-users, scripters, and developers. Additionally, we seek to create partnerships with existing application authors to help them achieve their goals. Orchard is delivered as part of the ASP.NET Open Source Gallery under the Outercurve Foundation. It is licensed under a New BSD license, which is approved by the OSI. The intended output of the Orchard project is three-fold:

  • Individual .NET-based applications that appeal to end-users , scripters, and developers
  • A set of re-usable components that makes it easy to build such applications
  • A vibrant community to help define these applications and extensions

In the near term, the Orchard project is focused on delivering a .NET-based CMS application that will allow users to rapidly create content-driven Websites, and an extensibility framework that will allow developers and customizers to provide additional functionality through modules and themes. You can learn more about the project on the Orchard Project Website.

Project Status

Orchard is currently in version 1.4. We invite participation by the developer community in shaping the project’s direction, so that we can publicly validate our designs and development approach. Our 1.4 release is available from our Downloads page, and is easy to Install Orchard using the Web Platform Installer. We encourage interested developers to check out the source code on the Orchard CodePlex.com site and get involved with the project.

How To Get Involved

We hope that by engaging with the community in the very early stages of the project that we will be able to shape Orchard into a valuable set of tools and applications for the community. The Orchard team is committed to open community participation and accepts code contributions today. We encourage community participation at all levels from general project feedback to bug fixes and patches.

Restarting the Microsoft File Transfer Manager

April 23, 2012

If you’ve ever used the Microsoft File Transfer Manager to download items from the MSDN subscriber downloads section, you may have accidentally closed it and searched your drive high and low to find the application to restart it.

If you haven’t run the MSI installer and just let IE install it, the application is in %SYSTEMROOT%\Downloaded Program Files\TransferMgr.exe. I found this article on Microsoft which has method of starting it from the command prompt, as well as an MSI installer which actually will give you a shortcut for you to start the application.

How to Hide a Menu Item in the ECB from SharePoint List Items

April 18, 2012

You can add new custom actions to the Edit Control Block (ECB) menu by using the Features framework. However, you cannot use this method to do the reverse – to hide existing ECB menu items– because they are rendered by using the ECMAScript (JavaScript, JScript) file, which is core.js. Note that modifying the core.js file is not supported or recommended.

Therefore, to hide ECB menu items, you must create a customcore.js file, modify this file to hide menu items, and then render the customcore.js file through a custom master page. Note that the out-of-the-box core.js file must remain in the custom master page; for that reason, your customcore.js file should have an attribute “Defer” with the value true.

The following steps allow you to create a customcore.js file and render it through the custom master page.

Hiding ECB menu items

  1. Copy the core.js file from its default location at %ProgramFiles%\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\14\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS\1033, place it in the same folder, and rename as customcore.js file.
  2. Make the necessary changes in the customcore.js file by removing unwanted ECB menu items.
  3. To create the custom master page, make a copy of the default.master page and rename it as custom.master.
  4. In the custom master page, add the following line to render the customcore.js file:

    <SharePoint:ScriptLink language=”javascript” name=”core.js” Defer=”true”  runat=”server”/><SharePoint:ScriptLink language=”javascript” name=”customcore.js”  Defer=”true” runat=”server”/>

  5. Save the custom.master page and upload it to the master pages gallery of the site. Then apply the custom.master page as the default master page for the site.

Microsoft Dynamics for not-for-profit organizations

April 2, 2012

Automate administration and processes to improve service and help reduce expenses

Why Microsoft Dynamics for not-for-profit organizations?

Successful management of a not-for-profit organization requires providing high-quality service, but at the same time, careful administration of expenses and improving processes are ongoing requirements. Each type of not-for-profit organization has unique needs. For example:

  • Social service and government agencies require meticulous reporting practices, essential for meeting regulatory compliance and securing future funding.
  • Professional and trade associations are tasked with managing business events as well as maintaining education and certification records.
  • Civic, fraternal, and religious organizations have complex membership relationship issues and vital fundraising projects.

Microsoft Dynamics offers powerful business management solutions focused on the common needs of not-for-profit organizations. These solutions promote improved membership management, accurate and timely reporting, easier access to data, and automated processes that help reduce daily overhead. This translates into more time to focus on your core mission of providing services and value to beneficiaries.

Provide responsible financial management

  • Gain real-time access to financial and member information to enable better decision-making with integrated accounting.
  • Integrate data from disparate systems such as finance and programs for a complete view of your organization.
  • Automate and streamline critical business processes, including funding and donor management, to reduce costs, decrease errors, and save time.
  • Member-based organizations see a major improvement in relationship-building through the use of automated communication tools and processes.
  • Increase compliance with regulatory and external audit requirements (for example, SFAS 117 in the United States).

Improve service delivery and increase constituent satisfaction

  • Improve case-management abilities through easy access to all case or member information.
  • Quickly and accurately respond to requests through a unified view of the constituent or member.
  • Improve project-management capabilities by centralizing all project-related information.
  • Analyze service-delivery speed and measure organizational performance to increase service effectiveness.
  • Execute targeted marketing campaigns that meet the needs of constituents or members.
