A reader emailed me to ask about where is the SQL Server Master Data manager Web UI? I guess, the reader might not recollect the URL that was created after the successful installation of Master Data Services. – And in fact, I had forgotten the Master Data Manager Web UI url once too and this how I got the URL of the master data manager web UI:
1. Start > IIS Manager
2. Find the site from the sites section of the IIS manager:
3. click on Browse the site and it would open the site.
4. After the site opens, you would also get a chance to see the location of the site
That’s about it.
This might not be new to most of you, but I hope that this helps someone out there who might need a pointer about searching for the URL of the Master Data manager web UI.
In this blog-post, we saw how to see the location of the Master data manager web UI via the IIS manager.
In this blog-post, I would show you step by step to install a HDInsight on a local Windows Machine. For the purpose of this blog-post, I am going to show it on Windows 7 but it also supported on Windows Server 2008 R2.
Note that the ideal audience for this blog-post would be a developer who wants to kick tires of Hadoop on windows machine to see what it can do! If I had wanted to target it to Hadoop administrators then I would have shown how to do it on Windows Server and also how to manage the Hadoop cluster with system center. But for this blog-post, I am going to target developers so that they can get started playing with Hadoop on a windows machine! With that, here are the steps to install Hadoop (HDInight) on Windows 7:
I have Sharepoint installed on one of my VM and I needed to open Sharepoint central administration for some reason. BTW, if you are into Sharepoint BI – there’s a little chance that you may run into this error and the error says “Service unavailable. HTTP error 503”. And after quick searches on Internet, figured out how to solve the problem. It turns out that I had changed the password of the Identity. It was my demo machine and I was running sharepoint using the domain’s administrative account. Don’t hit me! I am learning..Kidding. Any-who, Here are the steps:
Go to IIS Manager > Application pools > Locate sharepoint central admin that stopped > right click > Advanced settings > reset password.
Here’s a quick video. I am sorry for poor audio, Next time I’ll use a better tool:
