I have taken over a 6 server SharePoint (Enterprise) 2010 Farm. The first thing I did once I was given RDP access, was to have a shifty on each of the servers.
On one of the load balanced app servers. I discover Chris's Content Deployment Wizard 2.8 which was clearly installed by the consultants who originally setup the farm. Since, I want to back up/export some of the site I
So on the locally A/S in the Content wizard I have entered
http://[SHORTENED_URL] note, when I enter this in IE running alongside I have no problems
http://[FULLY_QUALIFIED_URL] note, when I enter this in IE running alongside I have no problems
In each case, I get a Validation Error: Unable to connect to Site [ADDR_URL] please check the URL.
Has anyone seen this? I have noticed a few things linked to my lack of permissions - seems not all Farm Admins are equal! However this just looks like straight http connection validation.
