Change Site ID in IIS 6

by Ted Jardine Monday, April 30, 2007 5:37 PM

We have an application that is dependant on a web site's Site ID in IIS. Usually, when we need to move a site from one server to the next, we just change the Site ID while using the handy IIS Migration Tool. However, we just had a site that was set up without the Site ID properly set so our database records were out of sync. A little bit of googling and presto:

  1. Open a command line (make sure you're an Admin or run the script as an Admin).
  2. Navigate to your AdminScripts directory (typically c:\Inetpub\AdminScripts).
  3. And run this script: cscript adsutil.vbs move w3svc/118431234 w3svc/11165089073 (where the first is the old Site ID and the second is the new one)

I'm displaying my ignorance I'm sure by posting this here as something I didn't know already, but heh, it's a useful thing to make note of (you didn't think I'd go do a search and replace in the IIS Metabase file did you?).

Andornot Search Cannery updates

by Administrator Friday, April 27, 2007 2:47 PM
What is the fastest way to get your users familiar with your web-based textbase content? What if you wanted your users to see the latest additions to your textbase? The answer is to give them a few predefined topic searches or links that search for just new additions. So just what is behind those links? Is it some complex coding?

These are called "canned searches" and in the interest of saving you time, we have revamped our popular web page for generating them by adding even more functionality . You can now use this for creating Inmagic Genie canned searches and for using saved sets rather than constructing query strings. We have also increased the size of the query string box to allow you to paste in long and complex queries. Give the Cannery a try and see how easy this is!

Andornot Library Kit

by Administrator Friday, April 27, 2007 2:45 PM
Do you want to hit the ground running with a Windows-based system that encompasses as many typical library functions as possible, and with the flexibility to add even more? Andornot has developed many custom designed library databases and we have now incorporated the best of these into our new kit. It includes a separate textbase for Orders and Subscriptions which allows you to choose whether to add items to the catalogue or not. With one record per order, it is easy to keep track of multiple copies charged to different departments, personal or office copies and items ordered on approval and then returned.

Andornot is selling two versions of the kit, one with just a desktop interface, and one with a web search and display interface to the catalogue. This might be all you need to get started. We are offering special pricing when both the desktop and web interfaces are purchased together.
