Release Notes

3.0a is a quick bug fix for yesterday's release.
This is a ground-up rewrite and the first release that has been tested on Sharepoint 2010.

This version was written with an eye toward stream-lining the application. I've removed the external configuration files and reduced the number of run-time options. The information displayed while the tool is running has also been minimized to give a general overview instead of throwing text at the screen. The old-style display is still available by using the -verbose option.

As with previous versions, the recommended usage is to run the utility without any run-time options. This will find and wake-up every site on your server. This will work on most servers.

Available options are:
-Exclude: Excludes the listed Site Collection URL from being woken.
Can be used more than once. Example: spwakeup3.exe -Exclude:http://badsite.com -Exclude:http://badsite2.com

-Email: An email address that should be sent a log of the results.

-UserName: Name of the account that should be used to browse the sites. If no user name is set, sites are accessed under the current account. This option must be used in conjunction with the -Domain and -Password options.
-Domain: The domain of the account specified above.
-Password: The password that should be used to browse the sites.

-Authentication: The type of authentication used to browse the sites. Default value is NTLM.

-Verbose Shows the old-style verbose interface.

Progress bar code was borrowed from: Simon Soane http://www.nullify.net/Article/269.aspx
The web site authentication code was donated by Rafale.

You are my hero! Solved the issue of SharePoint 2010's slow spin up in the morning. Thank you! And thank you for realsing it under open-source...It just works and as a scheduled task, not a single call related to slow SharePoint access in the morning.

Great job. I agree with lbbavt that being able to include additional specific pages would be great. Thanks!

Well worth testing in your environment and can produce some great results. Have seen this work very well on SharePoint 2010.

Great tool !! Small request,is there an easy way to wake up a site as IE7 or IE8. I am waking up Project 2010 that requires minimum IE7 and I get errors in the log. Thank you. Dragos

Great script. I'm looking to include specific pages, is that possible? I have some 3rd party web part pages that load slow first thing so i thought i'd try and include those pages in a warm up script. thanks.

Works awesome! Great job. I like the new status message as opposed to the old verbose output that was in the previous version. My only request would be an option to flip the automatic inclusion mode and specify what site collections to wake up using something like an -Include flag.
