The PortalName property must be set together with the PortalUrl property to establish a connection to a portal site. The PortalUrl property must be specified first and the PortalName property second.


The following code example uses the PortalName property to establish a connection to a portal site from the specified site collection.

Using oSiteCollection As New SPSite("http://Server_Name/sites/Site_Name")
    oSiteCollection.PortalUrl = "http://Portal_Site/"
    oSiteCollection.PortalName = "Portal_Name"
End Using
using (SPSite oSiteCollection = new SPSite("http://Server_Name/sites/Site_Name"))
    oSiteCollection.PortalUrl = "http://Portal_Site/";
    oSiteCollection.PortalName = "Portal_Name";
