Change your existing host header in SharePoint ( WSS or MOSS 2007 )

Do you want to publish your SharePoint intranet or internet site to your users with a nice friendly url (or hostheader)?

This article can be also used if you want to rename your web application.

When installing SharePoint 2007 (MOSS 2007) or WSS 3.0  from the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard, you may ask, ‘what do I do if I want to connect SharePoint using SQL authentication, rather than Microsoft’s Active Directory?’
You may want to connect SharePoint to its configuration database using a locked down SQL user account to isolate your front end website from Active Directory.

Using the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard, it may appear to be impossible to get past the DOMAIN\User_Name as required in the wizard.

Sylvia and I would like to thank all our family and friends who wished, emailed, prayed, blessed & visited for us. A big thank you to my colleagues in Canberra for their wishes and support. A ‘Tea for Nasia Taylor’ has been organised tomorrow at work and more celebrations to come!

I will be updating more Nasia’s pictures on the picasa gallery link.
Finally, Thank you for visiting my site – I hope you enjoyed it!

Nasia begins her life at her Toongabbie home with both her grandmums visit from overseas and all the care from her parents.
She sleeps soundly after a feed. Not even the neighbourhood rooster can wake her up!

We would love to have you over for a visit! More pictures to be loaded.

You want to know what happened to me the past couple of years?
Answer: Home Renovation Expert 🙂

Over the past two years, I have been involved in an on going home renovation project. I found a new skill (skills) in this amazing line of work. No computer screens, no mice, no keyboards, no sitting!
For this, you need to be highly motivated (after a day at work).

The biggest advantages:
1. Appreciate your house value.
2. Exercise.
3. Learn new skills.

Over the past two years..I have stripped wallpaper, repaired and painted walls, cement ‘bagged’ the exterior, cut down trees, put up a bamboo fence in the backyard, established a new lawn from seed, made storage cupboards, put in a flooring for three rooms…

I have only engaged professionals for tasks that I cant do myself; to install about 22 down lights (beautiful!), put in a new kitchen and new bathroom.

A few more tasks are pending which I will do myself:
1. External house painting on my cement textured render
2. a full backyard clean up (getting rid of the recently chopped tree) (completed)
3. Repair the second bathroom
4. Build one wardrobe (from scratch)
5. Mount a new wall clothes line (completed)
6. Establish a new lawn on the roadside footpath
7. Repair the existing lawn (due to my neglect!)
8. A few bits and pieces..

I need to call in two more trades professionals for
1. Roof tile painting
2. Exterior halogen wall mount lights for decoration!

If I had more time, I would.. sand the whole floor (wooden floor boards) and polish, make a new wardrobe for the 3rd bedroom…
I wish I had opportunities to mount gyprock (drywall), Tile laying and brick laying.

If you are interested in pics, please let me know. I have taken pics of everything!

I recently have started ‘networking’ on LinkedIn and Facebook. I have always stayed away those social networking sites which some claim to ‘steal’ your time. But I could be wrong…

Recently, I have found out its an ideal way to keep in touch with people. Everyone doesn’t have their personal sites (imagine all the Jeremy Taylors eying this domain 😛 – ooh I forgot I own a few other jeremytaylor domains too :D).

Coming back to the main point.. Build An ideal ‘network’ should be of quality. As an IT Infrastructure administrator myself, I always think to myself, what if we lock down on all traffic in and out of our networks. I know some entreprises lock down on outgoing and incoming traffic in networks – why? (ok, I hope I can articulate this well enough..) The main purpose IMO is to conserve bandwidth so that the important /priority traffic flows through without hindrance.
On the other hand, when we consider a social network, would it be biased to say, ‘lets control the traffic’. Lets “lock down” lets “prioritize” the contacts? Can the same be applied as we do it in our ‘IT Networking’ world.

Anyway, I am happy to join LinkedIn and I hope to ‘network’ with like minded people who know that they can make a difference. Entrepreneurs from other industries are welcome 🙂
