Microsoft Content Management SP2

I found an interesting article (Microsoft Content Manager Server – live after SP2) from Joris poelmans about the SP2 in CMS nad ASP.NET 2.0.

 For people working with Microsoft Content Management Server – I can definitely recommended you to use ASP.Net 2.0 in combination with MCMS. ASP.Net 2.0 makes CMS development a lot easier. To enable your CMS sites to use ASP.Net 2.0 ( and also SQL 2005 for that matter) you will need to install MCMS SP2. To get things started also take a look at the upgraded Woodgrove ASP.Net 2.0 application.

After deploying MCMS SP2, you should also take a look at the blog postings about these post-SP2 hotfixes:

  • Site Deployment export does not work on databases created before SP2 and moved to SQL Server 2005 (KB 913401)
  • Clearing hyperlink does not work after installing SP2 (KB 913554)
  • Workaround for the “CMS” virtual directory problem with VS.NET 2005
  • Another hotfix for MCMS 2002 addressing two issues has been released today!
  • VS.Net 2003 no prerequisite for MCMS SP2

    If you want to take a look at the (not so) distant future, you should also take a look at the posting from Mark Harrison about how concepts from MCMS map on the SharePoint Server 2007 platform since web content management will be made available on this platform. I will shortly post some more information about the future of Web Content Management on the Microsoft platform and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 role in this.
