  • Do I have to install SharePoint Foundation 2013 via a script in order to name my content databases without the GUID references?

    Hi,
    I want to install SharePoint Foundation 2013 on a standalone server with SQL Express but I want to be able to name the content databases without their GUID references. Will I have to use an install script (AutoSPInstaller perhaps?) to achieve this?
    Thanks.

    You can't do a standalone install if you want the alias (also if you plan to move the databases in the future)
    You'll need to create the alias before you create the farm with the Configuration wizard or PowerShell so you can specify the alias. Whether you create the alias before or after installing SQL Express doesn't matter as long as it points to the instance.

  • SharePoint Foundation 2013 installation question / guide.

    Hi All,
    I'm new in SharePoint and going to Install SharePoint Foundation 2013. What I want is after installation when I'll provide Site URL to my users they can able to access the site using there windows / system Login ID and Password which has been provided by company.
    Can you please help me what steps I've to follow while doing the installation also is it need to install SQL Server also for foundation. Please Advice
    Thanks

    Hi,
    SQL is the backbone for SharePoint and your SharePoint content (the content you actually store in your sites) is going into SQL. So, SQL is mandatory but if you are planning to use SQL Express (the lightweight edition) then you don’t need to install it separately
    – by selecting a Standalone type SP Installation wizard will automatically install SQL Express for you. But there are few limitations directly associated with express edition. Like Microsoft SQL Server Express Edition database cannot be larger than 10 GB etc.
    For a complete list please visit
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc645993.aspx
    In order to access newly created site, all you need to install SP product and create a site using the site template, once done grant access to the required users via site settings page and that way users can access sites.
    I hope it helps you.
    Thanks.

  • Sharepoint Foundation 2010 SP2 or SharePoint Foundation 2013

    Experts,
    I am installing FIM 2010 R2 SP1 on windows 2012.
    FIM Sync installed on server1.
    FIM Service installed on server2.
    Now I have to install:-
    FIM Portal on server3.
    With googling I understand that I need SharePoint Foundation 2013 or SharePoint Foundation 2010 SP2.
    Can anyone guide what would be the safe approach. I don't have any knowledge of SharePoint.
    Please suggest.
    Thanks,
    Mann

    Considering you would use it for FIM only, it doesn't really matter which version would you pick.
    If you want to implement FIM on Windows Server 2012 (or R2), just make sure that you install correct version of SharePoint (at least 2010 SP2)
    Keep trying If you found my post helpful, please give it a Helpful vote. If it answered your question, remember to mark it as an Answer.

  • SharePoint Foundation 2013 - March 2014 Update Issue - Need help

    We've just applied the SharePoint Foundation 2013 March 2014 Update, it always requires that we run the SharePoint Products Configuration Wizard at the end of install, but this time it's getting stuck at step 9 of 10 (the profile sync service cannot be
    started even as admin). Is anyone else having any issues with this update? Has anyone else applied it yet? Is anyone else planning to apply it?
    If anyone can help with advice on this I'd appreciate it.

    Hi,
    We can still access CA but sync will not start. Tried rebooting after the failed configuration and tried to run it again but it didn't work.

  • Using ADFS with SharePoint Foundation 2013?

    We have a WSS 3.0 web site used primarily for sharing documents with business partners who do not work for our company.  We plan on doing the 2 step upgrade to SharePoint Foundation 2013
    Our internal users also use it but normally just use internal network file shares if they aren't planning to share the documents with external users.
    Each business partner's company has a sub site within our main WSS site and documents are uploaded to that section of the site if we want to share documents with employees of that company. 
    Since we use AD for authentication, to make this work, we create AD user accounts for each external user and add them to a security group that gives them access to only their company's subsite on the main site.  
    We have to maintain their passwords, reset them and delete/disable them when that person no longer needs access.  Each business partner has a limit on the number of users who can get one of our AD accounts due to limits on the number of CALs available
    to them.  It is messy because these users often forget their passwords since they aren't using these accounts every day.  
    Is there a better way to do this so that we no longer have create and maintain user accounts for external users other than having to do a domain trust with all these other domains?
    I have heard of ADFS, but will it allow us to still control which sites and documents the external company users can access if we are not creating and managing the accounts and adding them to the correct security groups ourselves?
    We don't want every user from the partner's domains to be able to access the site.  If we use ADFS, how do we keep control of which external users have access to the site?

    Yes, you would add permissions just the same way you do with users from your local Active Directory. And yes, if you chose the email address to be the user's identifier, you would simply ask for the email addresses that you wanted and input those to the
    appropriate permissions on your SharePoint sites.
    You'll want to take a look at this:
    http://blogs.msdn.com/b/russmax/archive/2013/10/31/guide-to-sharepoint-2013-host-name-site-collections.aspx
    Also another thing to keep in mind is that you'll need to have those 3rd parties set up ADFS themselves, and you'll create an ADFS Trust between you and the 3rd party.

  • Provision Search in SharePoint Foundation 2013 without Domain Controller / Active Directory - Domain accounts

    Hi,
    I have successfully setup SharePoint Foundation 2013 as single server farm with SQL Server Standard database in a DMZ environment using local accounts since DMZ doesn't have an Active Directory and hence Domain accounts using powershell as described
    in https://theblobfarm.wordpress.com/2012/12/03/installing-sharepoint-2013-without-a-domain-controller 
    When I run Farm configuration wizard to provision search service application, I get an error:
    ERROR: "The service application(s) for the service "Search Service Application" could not be provisioned because of the following error: I/O error occurred."
    The log file logged the details of this error as:
    ERROR: "Failed to create file share Analytics_e441aa1c-1a8d-4f0a-a079-58b499eb4c50 at D:\SharePoint Search\Office Server\Analytics_e441aa1c-1a8d-4f0a-a079-58b499eb4c50 (System.ArgumentException: The SDDL string contains an invalid sid or a sid
    that cannot be translated."
    After investigation, I found that potentially the error could be because the timer service is trying to setup a network share for analytics component (as part of provisioning search). It is trying to setup that share with a domain account that happens to
    be a local user instead in this case and fails with error “System.ArgumentException: The SDDL string contains an invalid sid or a sid that cannot be translated”.
    I got some pointer from the below thread
    https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/c8e93984-f4e5-46da-8e8a-c5c79ea1ff62/error-creating-search-service-application-on-sharepoint-foundation-with-local-account?forum=sharepointadmin
    However, the above thread doesn't state that the solution worked.
    I have tried creating share manually for Analytics_<Guid> folder but it doesn't work since every time farm configuration wizards is run it creates a new Analytics_<Guid> folder.
    Since, I have setup SharePoint Foundation 2013 on a production environment I cannot test and trial various solutions.
    Can some please guide me on how to successfully provision search for SharePoint Foundation 2013 setup as a single server farm with SQL Server Standard database in a DMZ environment using local accounts (without Active Directory - domain accounts).
    Thanks in advance.
    Himanshu

    Microsoft documentation doesn't always specifically call out all products (Project Server isn't there, either). But it does apply. You'll need to stand up at least one Domain Controller, or allow port access back to a DC.
    Preferably, set up SharePoint on the internal network and use a reverse proxy (which will terminate client connections at the reverse proxy) present in the DMZ.

  • SharePoint 2010 workflows randomly not firing in SharePoint Foundation 2013

    Hi,
    We recently upgraded a client from SharePoint Foundation 2010 to SharePoint Foundation 2013. They had several workflows on their 2010 site and would like to continue to use them on their 2013 site. In most cases the workflows are firing properly, but in
    some cases the workflows don't fire at all and I see the following exceptions in the ULS logs when the list items get created (the workflow is set to fire on item created):
    AutoStart Workflow: Microsoft.SharePoint.SPException: List does not exist.  The page you selected contains a list that does not exist.  It may have been deleted by another user. ---> System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException: List does not
    exist.  The page you selected contains a list that does not exist.  It may have been deleted by another user.<nativehr>0x81020026</nativehr><nativestack></nativestack>
    A few of the ULS log entries that correspond to the exception are listed below. It looks like when the workflow is about to get triggered then the timer service can't find the associated list for some reason and then the workflow fails. The really frustrating
    part of this is that the probably occurs so randomly. It can happen for any user and sometimes it happens multiple times a day and sometimes is doesn't happen for weeks.
    Anyone know why this might be happening?

  • Duplicate Search Databases in SharePoint Foundation 2013 Farm

    I seem to have 2 seperate issues with Search within my SharePoint Foundation 2013 Farm. This is a new Farm, so I can remove the search service application and re-create if this is a way that can clear the 2 issues I am experiencing.
    Issue 1:
    For some reason I have 2 instances of the following search related DB's:
    SearchAdminDatabase
    SearchAnalyticsReportingDatabase
    SearchGathererDatabase
    SearchLinksDatabase
    1 instance of each of the databases all report database status of "No Action Required" and the other instance of all the DB's report a database status of "Not Responding".
    Issue 2:
    My search service application seems to be working fine as I am able to crawl content and retrieve results, however the DB's associted with this search service application are reported with the following warning within the SharePoint Health Analyzer. I have
    been unable to run the Upgrade-SPContentDatabase command against these databases as I get a message saying that the content database could not be found:
    Title
    Databases running in compatibility range, upgrade recommended.
    Severity
    2 - Warning
    Category
    Configuration
    Explanation
    The following databases have versions that are older than the current SharePoint software, but are within the backwards compatible range:
    Search_Service_Application_AnalyticsReportingStoreDB_a3c64b2f3b9b4a5d83383ec0b1ecfcf4,
    Search_Service_Application_CrawlStoreDB_ffb8d716450242cc849a7f44f521bfc9,
    Search_Service_Application_DB_0fe433c02db6435db85285e9fd83863e,
    Search_Service_Application_LinksStoreDB_75efb2f689cf49f19c98a5a8155e47b7.
    Remedy
    To achieve optimal results from these databases, use Upgrade-SPContentDatabase to upgrade Content databases, or psconfig.exe to upgrade other databases.  For more information about this rule, see "http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=142697".
    Kevin Evans

    At time people create search service application and delete it. SA is deleted but database were not deleted for some reason. so these might be those stale database. You can delete them if you want
    http://blogs.technet.com/b/tothesharepoint/archive/2011/12/19/find-active-databases-used-by-sharepoint-server-2010.aspx
    If you want a report of all of your SharePoint databases that includes the GUIDs and related property values, use the SharePoint 2010 Management Shell.
    There are several Windows PowerShell cmdlets you can use to find all of the SharePoint databases and then print this report to a text file. The quickest and perhaps easiest cmdlet is “Get-SPDatabase”. Run this cmdlet in the SharePoint
    2010 Management Shell to list all of the SharePoint Server databases with properties for each one. From this potentially large list you can then obtain specific information such as the database ID by using additional syntax in your cmdlet. Similarly, also
    in the SharePoint 2010 Management Shell, run “Get-SPDatabase | Sort-Object
    disksizerequired -desc | Format-Table Name” and you will get a simple list of the names for each database. You can then print this list to a text file by adding, “| out-file c:\db.txt” to the end of the command. 
    For detailed information, see
    Windows PowerShell for SharePoint Server 2010,
    Database cmdlets, 
    Get-SPDatabase, and
    Get-SPContentDatabase.

  • SharePoint Foundation 2013 - Treeview current navigation linking to wrong page

    Good day,
    We are having issues with the OOTB tree view for SharePoint Foundation 2013.
    The client has a document library with a folder structure. Clicking on the first level folder (Private) navigates you to the wrong url, but when you navigate to one of its child folders, by expanding the parent folder (Private) and THEN clicking on the parent
    folder, it navigates to the right url.
    See attatched screenshots:
    Error:
    No error:

    Hey guys,
    Any update on this? Sorry for the hassle, guessing it's a SharePoint bug?
    Thanks,

  • SharePoint Foundation 2013 - Search Configuration Issue - 2 App Servers and 2 Front-End Servers

    Hi, 
    We have a SharePoint Foundation 2013 with SP1 Environment. 
    In that, we have 2 Front-End Servers and 2 App Servers. In the Front-End Servers, the Search Service is stopped and is in Disabled state and in the 2 App Servers in One App Server, Search is Online and in another Search is Starting but goes to Stopped sooon
    after.
    Originally, we had only 1 App Server and we were running our Search Service and Search Service Application in that. Now since the index location became full and we were unable to increase the drive there, we added one more App Server and now the issue is
    Search is not properly getting configured in either of these App servers. What we want to do is run Search only in the new App Server, because we have a lot of storage space for Index locations here, but in the older App Server, not run Search at all.  We
    tried keeping the Search Service disabled and ran the below PowerShell Scripts, but none of the ones are working. These scripts are creating the Search Service Application, but the error of "Admin Component is not Online", "Could not connect
    to the machine hosting SharePoint 2013 admin component" is coming up.

    Hi Karthick,
    For your issue, could you provide the
    detail error message of ULS log  to determine the exact cause of the error?
    For SharePoint 2013, by default, ULS log is at

    For troubleshooting your issue,  you can try to run the SharePoint Products Configuration Wizard on your WFE servers and run the script for configuring the search service on SharePoint

  • Sharepoint Foundation 2013 People field wont save data

    Guys, having an issue with a list column. We have some columns that are Person or Group.  when we enter in a user, it finds it just fine saves it just fine. but if i come back into that list and edit some other field the Person or Group field is totaly
    cleared out. I don't know what is going on. we are using SharePoint foundation 2013.

    If you're using SharePoint 2013 April 2013 CU or higher, this is a known issue where the People data is missing in Edit view. There is a separate issue that is resolved in the September 2014 CU:

    Consider the following scenario:
    You create a SharePoint 2013 list that contains a Person or Group (people picker) column.
    You create or edit an item, and then you select a person whose name contains a comma in the Person or Group field.
    In this scenario, the value of the Person or Group field is lost when you save the item.

  • Sharepoint Foundation 2013 User field issue

    Guys, I have an issue with Sharepoint Foundation 2013 site that we have created some custom workflows for. We have a couple required fields that we type in a users name and it automatically pulls up a user based on Active directory. once we choose that name
    and then save the form. the field immediately becomes blank when i open the workflow item back up. I'm kind of at a loss. I've already totally hosed the server once and was forced to restore.  This seams to have started when we installed share point server
    patch KB2881077 but i cannot uninstall or roll back the patch as there is no option to.
    Thoughts?
