MS Index Server, Web Page Searches - General Questions


I have the service set up and running and I'm able to do searches on my website and return the results to a search page. The basics are fine and up and running.

Question: I find when I publish the website if the '[x] Make site updateable' checkbox isn't checked the .aspx pages do not show up in a search. Is it true that the site must be published as updateable in order to make the MS Indexer work?  Am I sacrificing security in order to get the pages indexed?  Is there a way to publish the site as not updateable and still have the indexer work?

 If you look at the published site (with make site updateable unchecked), you'll find that all the aspx pages are replaced with marker aspx files with the same name but having the following line of text as their content.

This is a marker file generated by the precompilation tool, and should not be deleted! 

 Once this happens, the keywords associated with the pages are lost and so the pages don't appear in searches.

Object datasource and paging question
I just noticed that, if I enable paging in a gridview, the object datasource is called for each page. If I have paging disabled, the object datasource is called only once. This seems very expensive. Am I interpreting what is going on correctly? If so, is there a way to avoid multiple calls to the datasource? Thanks.Duncan Hi,dsutherland: To enable this feature, set the EnableSortingAndPagingCallbacks property to true. Notice that when a page or sort operation is performed, the page does not need to postback in order to retrieve new values (although a client script callback to the server i...

All web pages hang on web server when one of the web pages calls a run away sql query
Hi: We have a Windows 2003 dedicated web server running the .NET Frameworks 1.0 and 2.0.  We have a SQL Server cluster running SQL Server 2000.  Unfortunately, we do not have a test environment.  I have 2 .NET web sites in production.  My coworker has a voting .NET web page using AJAX on the same server.  The coworker wrote a query that was not indexing properly and when the page fired the query...the cluster went to almost 100% utilization.  My two web pages would hang and show a blank white page on the default.aspx.  Neither of m...

Can you return .net web controls in a .net page from a web service?
I've got a problem with a project. I've got to compile an entire .net page and return it as part of a Web Service for display. The problem I have is that I need to add WebControls and functionality to the page so that not only the html content and images are displayed (which I've managed) but that textboxes, labels, buttons and datasets can be displayed also. Essentially I need to make a call from one site for a page, populate the page and return it in a state as though it resided on the same server/webspace as the calling page.

A bot net is watching a page on my web server
A few days ago I noticed that a page containing information that is not interesting and is commonly available elsewhere was becoming very popular on my site. It is now the most popular single page with 4352 hits in the last 6 days. I'm not going to post the page URL here because I don't want to upset what is going on with you all visiting the page. Suffice it to say that the page is just about stupid and almost empty. Today I started looking at my server logs to see who was linking to that page (expecting to find a referred from URL in at least some of the hits) and ...

MS SQL Question regarding page/index defrag.
I know the shortcut to 'defragging' the database to eliminate and reclaim 'whitespace' in data and index pages is to setup a maintenance plan. This doesn't work for me for two reasons: 1. I like to know how things work. 2. I can not create maintenance plans with my hosted provider. I use the following T-SQL to rebuild all indexes on all tables: -- exec sp_MSforeachtable "DBCC DBREINDEX ('?', ' ', 90) But, does that not only address indexes? What about getting whitepace back from data in tables themselves? Am I over-thinking this? When you're paying for SQL by the MB and ge...

2 questions: packing up web app/ objects in pages.
in my aspx.vb(I think called the code behind page), I declared an array of an object I created, and then put two instanciated objects into it. If I then go to the aspx page, and put in this code, it doesnt recognize the object... <% Dim myObj1 as Kra1 myObj1 = myArray(0) Dim myObj2 as Kra1 myObj2 = myArray(1) %> but I can do this, and it works just fine. ...q1, and q2 are the two fields in the object Kra1 <% myArray(0).q1 myArray(0).q2 %> So, how is it that Kra1 is recognized in the aspx.vb page, but not in the aspx? Arent they the same page...
