IIS Restart to read registry settings

Using NET STOP and NET START commands to force IIS services to re-read the registry

We strongly recommend that all users upgrade to Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) version 7.0 running on Microsoft Windows Server 2008. IIS 7.0 significantly increases Web infrastructure security. For more information about IIS security-related topics, visit the following Microsoft Web site: For more information about IIS 7.0, visit the following Microsoft Web site:


When you make changes to the registry that affect IIS and its dependent services, you must stop and restart those services in order to force them to re-read the registry.

As an alternative to stopping and starting those services using the Services applet in Control Panel, you can use the NET STOP and NET START commands.

More Information

Stopping IISADMIN and its dependent services

To stop all IIS-related services, type NET STOP IISADMIN /Y at a command prompt. This will stop the IIS Admin Service and all dependent services. Below is an example of the output you will see after issuing this command (the dependent services listed on your computer may vary):
The following services are dependent on the IIS Admin Service service.
Stopping the IIS Admin Service service will also stop these services.

   FTP Publishing Service
   Microsoft NNTP Service
   Microsoft SMTP Service
   World Wide Web Publishing Service
You will then see a message displayed as each service is successfully stopped.

Starting the IIS-related services

Use the NET START command to restart the IIS-related services you use. For example, to restart the World Wide Web service, type NET START W3SVC.

Determining service names

To determine the service names, start Registry Editor (type Regedit.exe or Regedt32.exe) and go to the following registry key:

Under Services, the service name that works with the NET STOP and NET START commands is listed.

NOTE: For each service, there is also a DisplayName value, which is the name listed in the Services applet in Control Panel and in the messages displayed after the NET STOP and NET START commands are run. However, these Display Names cannot be used as a parameter with the NET STOP and NET START commands.

The maximum length of an email address 254

The maximum length of an email address is 254 characters.
Every email address is composed of two parts. The local part that comes before the '@' sign, and the domain part that follows it. In "user@example.com", the local part is "user", and the domain part is "example.com".
The local part must not exceed 64 characters and the domain part cannot be longer than 255 characters.
The combined length of the local + @ + domain parts of an email address must not exceed 254 characters. As described in RFC3696 Errata ID 1690.

SharePoint 2013 Development from local workstation

A great co-worker showed our team the following NUGET package that allows you to work directly from your work station instead of needing a full SharePoint 2013 Development Environment and I am sure it would work for SharePoint 2016.  See the image below.

Thanks to Joe.

C# reminder of the day sealed

When the keyword "sealed" is applied to a class, the sealed modifier prevents other classes from inheriting from it. In the following example, class B inherits from class A, but no class can inherit from class B Code sample class A {} sealed class B : A {} Source - MSDN

SharePoint 2013 --- I'm Back

Wow, back at developing in SharePoint, who knew... Well my new co-working SharePoint Kerry, gave me some insight on SharePoint Application Permissions DUH! I an knocking the cobwebs out of my head using SharePoint Again. Central Admin > Application Management > Select the "App" > On the ribbon User Policy --- *DUH*! Adding or updating Web application policy with new users or groups will trigger a SharePoint Search crawl over all content covered by that policy. This can reduce search crawl freshness and increase crawl load. Consider using security groups at the policy level and add/remove users from security groups to avoid this.
