  • >> It is look like all the links (i did not check all but lot) from the first URL are not working and I do not get error 500 but error message "We are sorry, the page you requested cannot be found" which is probably custom error page for error 404.

    >> On the second URL I am getting the asp.net yellow page! which is not a good sign for the developer team :-(

    Runtime Error

    Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine. 

    Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a <customErrors> tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This <customErrors> tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off".
    <!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->
            <customErrors mode="Off"/>

    Notes: The current error page you are seeing can be replaced by a custom error page by modifying the "defaultRedirect" attribute of the application's <customErrors> configuration tag to point to a custom error page URL.
    <!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->
            <customErrors mode="RemoteOnly" defaultRedirect="mycustompage.htm"/>

  • You can start with SQL Server 2012 70-461 exam:


    The other SQL Server 2012 exams: 70-462 & 70-463.

    I took 70-461. It is a challenging, practical-oriented exam.

  • One thing to be aware of.  Some of the exams that are marked SQL Server 2012 also include enough material from SQL Server 2014 to cause you to fail if you are not very strong in the SQL 2012 material.
