Sharepoint Foundation 2013 On a SBS 2011 Domain??

I have an SBS 2011 domain with 2 servers(SBS2011 Premium) The SBS box acts as domain controller and the second server runs Server 2008R2 and has SQL 2008R2 on it for Dynamics GP and Dynamics CRM 2011 and hosts the Sharepoint Foundation 2010 Databases. Is
there a way that I can setup a Sharepoint Foundation 2013 farm. Currently both boxes are farm members in the 2010 farm. I would like to keep the setup similar but if I have to can I just run the farm on the 2nd server. Will it live side by side with the Sharepoint
2010 on the SBS box. What about Companyweb? Thanks in advance

  • Installing SharePoint Foundation 2013 on SBS 2011?

    Can I install SharePoint Foundation 2013 on SBS 2011 Standard without breaking the site in any way?

    The SharePoint Foundation 2013 works with other applications and Windows features, so it depends on any of the components that SharePoint Foundation 2013 needs.  If some features or applications cannot be installed successfully, the SharePoint
    Foundation 2013 will not work normally.   The Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2012 are recommended.
    Here is an article on the requirements for SharePoint 2013 can be referred to.

  • Sharepoint foundation 2013 "The trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain failed"

    Hi Sir/Madam,
    I try to connect the sharepoint foundation 2013 server by remote desktop recently using domain account, but it show the error message that mentioned in the subject. I can login the server using local account. Do I need to disjoin
    the domain then rejoin the domain? Will there be any risk if I do this? 
    My SharePoint environment as below:
    Primary domain : abc.local (DC : windows server 2012 standard R2)
    SharePoint : SharePoint foundation 2013 and SQL Standard 2012 installed on a single windows server 2012 standard (not R2, joined domain "abc.local)
    I tried this on DC > active directory user and compouter >right click Sharepoint pc > click reset > reboot sharepoint server, reboot sharepoint server but still cannot login using AD account
    I also tried netdom command and powershell command "Reset -ComputerMachinePassword" also failed to reset the password.
    Please help to resolve my problem. Thanks

    Go to Control Panel -> System -> under Computer Name, Domain, click Change Settings. Click on the Change button, then re-type the domain in the NetBIOS or FQDN format, which ever it is currently not set to. This will force a soft-join to the domain.

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

    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
    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
    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.

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

    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
    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.
    Can I get some help please?

  • 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:
    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.

  • Sharepoint Foundation 2013 on Windows Server 2012 R2 Essential - any chance to install?

    Understood that it's impossible to install SharePoint as it is not supported on a domain Controller BUT is there any chance to install instead SharePoint Foundation 2013 on a Essential Server?

    Seems so, although as you know it would be better on a member server as a VM.

  • SharePoint Foundation 2013 - Master Pages

    I am trying to create a SharePoint Intranet site but am quickly running into a number of issues and am looking for help.
    I need to create a site that has multiple subsites (one for each department) however all of the subsites need to have a consistent look and feel about them so I have delved head long into branding, creating master pages, etc.  I have set-up  a
    master page, with a logo and icon, I would like this to cascade down to all subsites and pages below however I have no option to set this up.
    Is this a limitation of using foundation?  What other limitations are there to foundation that I need to be aware of?
    There also doesn't seem to be any visual designer, what do people use and what would people recommend to use?
    I am sure there will be a number of other questions that I need to ask but these will do for starters.

  • Sharepoint foundation 2013, IIS Logging can't logging excel file problem

    Hello, I am new in SharePoint 2013, 
    When I was using SharePoint foundation 2010, I am using IIS for audit log. That can logging user name and what they clicked.
    some like:
    2014-05-28 08:09:40 GET /folder/subfolder/file.PDF - 80 domain\userid1,
    2014-05-28 08:09:40 HEAD /folder/subfolder/file.XLSX - 80 domain\userid2,
    When I am using SharePoint foundation 2013 the log like this:
    2014-05-28 08:09:40 GET /folder/subfolder/file.PDF - 80 0#.w|domain\userid1,
    2014-05-28 08:09:40 OPTIONS /folder/subfolder/ - 80 0#.w|domain\userid2,
    The excel file can't logging, how can I fix it?

  • SharePoint Foundation 2013 Managed Account.

    Hi all,
    I have a doubt, I want to register a new managed account in SharePoint Foundation 2013, My question is do I need to know the password of active directory user account which I am going to add as the Managed account.
    is it that the password which I enter while creating the managed account must match with the password of Active Directory user Account. Below is the screen shot in which there is a field for username & password. I know the UserName, can we assign any
    password to this or the password must match with the password given in AD.
    Please clear my doubts.

    Adding more information :
     A Managed Account is effectively an Active Directory user account whose credentials are managed by and contained within SharePoint.  In addition to storing the credentials of the object, Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 can also leverage Active Directory
    Domain Policies to  automatically reset passwords while meeting the requirements established by policy.
    How credentials are stored…
    Managed Account credentials are encrypted using a farm encryption key that is specified when you run PSConfig[ui].exe at farm creation based on the passphrase.  The passphrase is stored in a secure registry location so that it can only be accessed by the
    farm account and encrypted so that only the farm account has access

  • 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:
    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:
    Databases running in compatibility range, upgrade recommended.
    2 - Warning
    The following databases have versions that are older than the current SharePoint software, but are within the backwards compatible range:
    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 "".
    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
    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.

  • Users in new OU in Active Directory have to enter credentials when accessing SharePoint Foundation 2013

    We have a SharePoint farm consisting of one web front end server and one database server, running SharePoint Foundation 2013.  This farm has been up and running for over a year and uses AD for authentication, and SharePoint groups for authorization.
    The problem we are seeing is when we create a new Organizational Unit in AD, and add users under this new OU they are prompted for their credentials when trying to access SharePoint.  We've done the below tests to narrow the issue down:
    1) New user (xxx) in new OU (111) logs into Windows PC and tries to access SharePoint via IE 10 -- they are prompted for their credentials. They are required to enter their username as 'domain\username' to be able to log in successfully to SharePoint.
    2) Existing user (yyy), in existing OU (222) logs into same Windows PC and tries to access SharePoint via IE 10 -- they are NOT prompted for their credentials and get into SharePoint successfully.
    3) Existing user (yyy) is moved into new OU (111), logs into same Windows PC and tries to access SharePoint via IE 10 -- they are prompted for credentials and need to use 'domain\username' to log in to SharePoint
    4) Existing user (yyy) is moved out of new OU (111) and back into their old OU (222), logs into same Windows PC and tries to access SharePoint via IE 10 -- they are prompted for credentials and need to use 'domain\username' to log in to SharePoint
    Note: both the new OU (111) and old OU (222) are within the same parent OU.
    1 & 2 combined tell me that it's not a PC or IE issue. We've also tried 1 & 2 on multiple PCs so that would eliminate a profile issue as well.
    To me it seems that SharePoint doesn't know that the new OU is in our domain, so it doesn't think the users within the new OU are in our domain, which is why they have to supply the domain with their username when logging in...but I'm not exactly an expert
    when it comes to AD so this is just a guess on my part.
    As a long shot, what I thought may fix it would be by syncing AD with SharePoint by using User Profile Synchronization, but it's not offered as part of SharePoint Foundation, so I used this nice solution at CodePlex (,
    but that did not fix it.
    Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?  Or what the issue may be?

    Hi Christopher,
    Thanks for the reply.
    I feel very stupid right now -- I did look at this before posting this question to the forum, but it seems I didn't look far enough. 
    We have a GPO that enters our domain into the 'Local intranet' of IE.  Our SharePoint site's URL is "" and we've got "*" under Local intranet sites.  But, I also found the FQDN ""
    under 'Trusted sites' and that seems to confuse SharePoint because once I moved the FQDN to Local intranet, and removed it from Trusted Sites, the user is now not prompted for their credentials when going into SharePoint.
    Thanks for your reply in making me take a second look.
    EDIT: We've just removed the FQDN from Local intranet, so all we have is "*" under Local intranet and it works as well.

    I recently acquired a SuperMicro chassis that has a SAS2 expander backplane. It has SFF-8087 ports on it. made a post on another forum and someone mentioned that the card couldn't be used with that backplane since it's a SATA controller, however, the backplane is both SAS and SATA device compliant, it's only the RAID controller, as far as I know, that is a "SATA II" controller, and not a SAS controller.So, I couldn't find anything in the official documentation of this controller on whether or not it was able to control SAS devices. The card itself has a 3 SFF-8087 ports though, couldn't this theoretically still be used with a SFF-8087 to SFF-8087 cable(seen below)since the backplane is a SAS/SATA backplane?...
