SLK stsadm commands Added in 1.7
In SLK 1.7 I have deprecated slkadm by adding equivalent stsadm commands. These work in the same way, but have the advantage of not needing a separate executable distributed.
As SLK runs on 2007 & 2010, I’ve so far been trying to keep the codebase the same for both versions which is why I haven’t added any PowerShell commands. I expect that I’ll change this in the next couple of versions.
The commands allow you to configure and list site collections and consist of:
This command allows you to configure, or re-configure a site collections’s SLK mapping. It allows you to set up the SLK database, the permissions used and the slksettings file.
stsadm -o slk-configure
[-databaseserver <database server name*>]
[-databasename <database name>]
[-instructorpermission <instructor permission name>]
[-learnerpermission <learner permission name>]
[-uploadslksettings <SLK Settings XML file name> | -defaultslksettings]
* By default, integrated authentication is used to connect to the database. To use a SQL Server user ID and password instead, append the appropriate connection string information to the database server name -- for example, instead of "MyServer", use
For security reasons, integrated authentication is strongly recommended.
Only one of -uploadslksettings and -defaultslksettings can be used
-application must be used when configuring a web application rather than a site collection
This command allows you to delete an SLK mapping for a site collection or web application.
stsadm -o slk-deletemapping
Not that you must use the site collection ID. The easiest way to get this would be by slk-enummapping.
This command lists of the SLK mappings in the local farm.
stsadm -o slk-enummappings
An example output is:
http://laptop01 (1c8288b8-ec84-4912-bc55-3569e7626b3a) --> Server=LAPTOP01;Database=slktest
http://laptop01/sites/gsdt (1eb7c24c-e7cf-4dea-9c3d-c49c7478f359) --> Server=LAPTOP01;Database=slktest
http://laptop01/sites/slk (25ac1434-a59c-4c78-8cf3-d343f0c79e92) --> Server=LAPTOP01;Database=SharePointLearningKit
http://laptop01/sites/gdst (e0ee8d39-7076-4d30-bc8f-601850f49ac7) --> Server=LAPTOP01;Database=SharePointLearningKit2
In this output the first line describes a mapping for a web application, while the other 3 are for individual site collections.
This command returns the details of a mapping for a site collection or a web application.
stsadm -o slk-getconfiguration
Returns the configuration for a site or web application.
Use either url or guid.
An example output is:
Database server: LAPTOP01
Database name: SharePointLearningKit
Create Database : False
Instructor Permission: SLK Instructor
Learner Permission: SLK Learner
Create Permissions: False
