Parser Error

Description: An error occurred during the parsing of a resource required to service this request. Please review the following specific parse error details and modify your source file appropriately.

Parser Error Message: Data at the root level is invalid. Line 1, position 1.

Source Error:

Line 1:  <browsers>
Line 2:      <browser id="Safari2" parentID="Safari1Plus">
Line 3:          <controlAdapters>

Source File: /App_Browsers/compat.browser Line: 1



I noticed that on the server the App_Browsers folder contained a new folder beside the compat.browser file named _vti_cnf.  This folder contained another compat.browser file containing some meta info.  I deleted this folder and this fixed the problem.


SyncUpgradeTimerJob sleeping for 10 seconds for SharePoint 2007 SP1 or SP2 Upgrade

while upgrading to SP2 I was tripped by the fact that it took a really long time to complete the upgrade process. I checked with the upgrade.log file from C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\LOGS folder found the following line was written:

[SPManager] [DEBUG] [4/19/2008 10:51:53 AM]: SyncUpgradeTimerJob: sleeping for 10 seconds



Set the following services to manual startup and shut them off:
World wide web service
Microsoft Single Sign-on Service
Windows Sharepoint Services Search

Restart spadmin and sptimer services

If needed: Command line with C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\BIN>psconfig.exe -cmd upgrade -inplace b2b -wait -force
