    Posted: 22 April 2011 at 6:42pm
I am in the process of moving our old spamfilter server into the graveyard...and moving spamfilter to 2008 R2 VM.
 
I have installed and have the spamfilter itself working but I am unable to get the web interface to cooperate.
 
I have installed ASP, modified the UDL (test connection passes), but I keep getting cryptic http 500 errors.
 
I just need to get the old interface up and going while kicking the tires on some of the new interfaces.
 
HELP!
 
Tnx...Roy

Unfortunatly http 500 is a Generic error code that basically means that something went wrong at the serverside. You would need to analyze your webserver logs for more information. It may also help to turn OFF "show friendly HTTP error messages" in your IE browser. This may give you more info on the error including the line number that had the error.
 
If you can give us a URL to the installation then we may be able to see the error's and give more advise. But in this case the error code itself is not enough information to go on.

He fixed his connection string.
you are better of telling us the problem that you are having and what steps you have tried.
 
if what you have is public facing then as per above if you give me the url i can look at the site and see what errors it is throwing.

was having the same problems as he(she) was.  500 etc.

basically getting a 800a8e7a error. so i tried different application settings etc.  change to 32 bit on the application and that just shuts down and gives a 503 error.

My Spamfiliteraccess.udl file looks like this:

[oledb]
; Everything after this line is an OLE DB initstring
Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\Program Files (x86)\SpamFilter\Database\SpamFilter.mdb;Persist Security Info=False

Okay 800a8e7a indicates a provider error.
you need to fix, test, and verify the udl before it will work.

my server does not have a sql server running on it.  neither does my 2003 machine and it works.

the blog you referenced i believe is refencing sql server 2000 or 2005.

Doesnt matter that you dont have SQL the connector to an access database works in much the same way and can be tested in the exact same way.

the problem is the old jet stuff that doesn't work with 2008 server.  and i didn't quite figure out the "Provider" change (or where to change it) until I read more and more and found the accessdatabase engine update

Crap.  I just realized that my change works for the web page but then it Breaks Spamfilterisp.  it now doesn't recognize the "NEW" provider.

Roberto, care to chime in?

SpamfilterISP doesnt use the udl file.
What do you mean "it now doesn't recognize the "NEW" provider"
 
what is happening?
is the website not working or is the console reporting an issue?
 
have you run through the "Database" tab steps to check your connectivity?

Unfortuneately Spamfilter does use the UDL file.  and to your point, yes, i have used the database steps, and that is, of course here you select the UDL file to read.    The error is Provider not found when using a PROVIDER that Server 2008 Recognizes for the Web based part of the equation.
 
Do you have Server 2008 R2 with Spamfilter (access database) running and the Web Quarantine interface working?
