The resource object with key 'open_menu' was not found - Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007 - TR Upgrade Issue
There is a detailed step-by-step path to follow when applying the B2TR to a B2 MOSS installation. This particular error shows itself when you are upgrading a stand-alone beta 2 installation, and you did not delete the registry keys specified for the Search Service. Interestingly, if you follow the steps - and be sure to delete the registry keys outlined in a stand-alone B2 installation - upgrade, the error does not surface. Googling the error does not return any real support - and MSFT has shared ......

MOSS 2007 / WSS v3. - A Marriage and Chemistry that Deserves Attention!!!
Just when you think you have seen it all - I must share one you have NOT seen yet. Emphasis on YET??? As we forge ahead and architect these awesome solutions using MOSS - I suspect it is fairly easy to become enamored of some basics - you know, the little details that are the life-blood of your solution. :) Like I said - basics. Basic 1) WSS is a life-blood underpinning of MOSS. Basic 2) Without basic 1, there will be no basic 2 !!! Today I experienced absolute bliss - from a MOSS perspective :) ......

The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID - MOSS / SharePoint 2007 Server Issues Revisited
You may see this error - more than once - when working with your Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007 deployment. This animal / error generally shows itself after you have applied an upgrade to an existing deployment. For example, when upgrading from B2 MOSS to B2TR MOSS - or when applying a special service pack from MSFT - you may begin to see a lot of these errors pop up in the SYSTEM event log. The error CLSID is followed by a class ID for the DCOM+ application that the service account ......

A failure was encountered while launching the process serving application pool 'SharePoint Central Administration v3'. The application pool has been disabled. - SharePoint Server 2007 Setup
Just an FYI... As you forge ahead into the world of MOSS and deploying / configuring MOSS sites with actual service accounts - you may very well run into this error. The PRIMARY cause of this error has to do with the service account. When you created the service account, you set a password for it. Did you document that with your client? If you did not, it is very possible that someone in IT at the client site will change it to something THEY know and want to manage. Alas, all things SharePoint begin ......

Black Lists / SPAM Filters / How To Block Annoying Emails
I have been working with Plesk Control panel for a few years to provision web, FTP and email sites. Over the years, and because I personally have a lot of older email addresses that I simply do not want to change - I have noticed an increase in the number of obvious garbage / SPAM messages I get each day. I have reviewed the Plesk SPAM Filter for Black List items - and I have entered a number of email wildcards to filter here - but that's all it actually does is filter. I thought Black Lists blocked ......

The IIS Admin Service service terminated with service-specific error 2149648394 (0x8021080A).
The IIS Admin Service service terminated with service-specific error 2149648394 (0x8021080A). IIS Admin Service goes away after restoring a VHD / VPC Server I recently had the unexpected pleasure of losing my IIS Admin server - altogether!!! Translate - 150% !!! Now, before this - everything was going great - except. During an upgrade of MOSS (Microsoft Office SharePoint Server) I encounted an issue that forced me to restore a VPC image - essentially bringing over another copy of the VHD and firing ......
