Sharepoint 2007 and 2010 “issue”

September 10, 2010 Leave a comment

Not a bug, but never knew this,…

if you have a SharePoint based site that is configured to recycle the application pool it depends on everynight (the default behaviour), the first site access for that app pool will have a 30-120 second delay on it (or more).

This isn’t a “bug” as its simply compiling, caching, etc… on the server after the recycle (or iisreset).

Manual recycles/resets can’t be resolved – however there is a way to “wake up” the site every night after the daily recycle has happened.

is a little exe that basically “opens” the sites for the first time – it basically becomes the “first user” that suffers the delay. After that, loading times will be rediculously fast 🙂 – schedule this to run each night @ 4/5am and voila – fast intranet at 9am 😛

Here is exact steps to move SSP Administration site to a new web application

Create a new web application through central admin

Define a new “ssp/admin” manage path for the new web application created for SSP Admin site, ensure the new web application created that will host the new ssp admin site is selected and also specify “explicit inclusion” for type and “ssp/admin” for path, click “Ok”

Create a new site collection using SSP Administration site template

stsadm –o createsite –url http://{replace with your servername}:{replace with port}/ssp/admin -owneremail {owneremail} –ownerlogin {ownerlogin} –sitetemplate OSRV#0 –title “Shared Services Administration {replace with your ssp name}”

edit the ssp to point to the new ssp administration site

Stsadm –o editssp –title “{replace with your ssp name” –sspadminsite “http://{replace with your server name}:{replace with port}/ssp/admin”
