Removal of out of the box security groups?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 02, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Are there any drawbacks to removing the out of the box security groups? Is are there things that depend on them? Approvers Designers Hierarchy Managers Quick Deploy Users Style Resource Readers Viewers did i miss one? I can verify that none of my sites use them. Why? because it's a new site collection. :)

User Profile Service not returning security groups


I just got the User Profile Service working, and tried using GetCommonMemberships but I am only getting Distro lists and Sharepoint groups.  No security groups (Domain Local, Global, Universal) are showing up.

I did come across one post where someone was not running in Native mode AD, its possible since I *JUST* ADPrepped and added a 2008 DC today that I'm back in a mixed mode and that is the problem...?  Seems weird tho.   Just checked on the new 2008 DC it says Windows 2003 mode or something along those lines

Sharepoint itself is able to see and use the security groups.  If I change permissions on a List or library, I am able to select security groups.  It seems specific to the User Profile Service.

A little more looking... it seems that DL's show up, and Universal security groups show up.  Domain Local and Domain Global security groups do not.




Alert for Security Groups not working



I am trying to set up an alert on SharePoint to go out to everybody in an AD Security Group. I encountered the problem that the initial "Alert Created" email went out to everybody, but after that the actual alerts don't get sent. Googling this problem has taken me to a lot of sites with a similar problem, but unfortunately I haven't found a solution that works for me.

It seems one of the key points is that the Security Group needs to be added to a SharePoint Group that has got access permissions to the list I am trying to alert on. I have done that. I have added the AD Group to a SharePoint Group that has got read, view and contribute permissions to the list. But still no success.

I have added an individual alert for myself and that comes through just fine. But the alert to the Security Group just isn't being sent.

Am I missing something else?

Domain groups in Cluster Security policy during install of SQL Server 2008

I am trying to install SQL Server 2008 on Windows server 2003 and have a question about the stage of 'Cluster Security Policy'.

We need to select 2 groups here, one for SQL server database domain group and the other for SQL server agent domain admin group.

My question is, is it different from service accounts that we used to specify in previous versions? I remember the wizard asking for service account that the sql services need to run under. Is this domain group part a replacement for those individual service accounts? If yes, do I need to have the service account added to a separate group and select that group in this part of 'Cluster security policy'?


SharePoint Standard Security Groups



I am new to this forum so I am sorry if this is a repeat....in one of my environments that I am using to create a SharePoint site for a client the Standard Security Groups got deleted. Can I reference my other environment and recreate the groups and make the associations by using the "View Group Permissions" or am I better off starting with a new site collection?

Thank you.

SharePoint Tutorial - Security

Security in SharePoint is comprised of users, groups and roles.

Users, Groups and Roles

A user account comes from the authentication system. For example, if Active Directory is used to authenticate then the user accounts will come from it.

There are two types of groups SharePoint uses: domain groups and SharePoint groups.

RadioButton Groups, Table Rows And NamingContainers in asp.net

The RadioButtonList. Very handy for inviting users to select just one item from a list although because of the screen real estate it takes up, used less and less in favour of the DropDownList. In plain HTML, the browser knows to enforce the unique selected value amongst a list of radio buttons because they all have the same value for their name attributes.

RadioButton Groups, Table Rows And NamingContainers

(In which AJAX-enhanced CheckBoxes become more useful than RadioButtons but inheritance saves the day, and a simple RadioButton-derived control establishes the purpose of a control's naming container)

Good Day all,

Having an issue with an outside user accessing my IIS7 box. I do not have this problem when running the website from my host machine. I found this post: Http://forums.asp.net/t/1371394.aspx. I assure you that this is not a solution because I am not storing any of my files on a network share. 

What do you think my approach should be. 

I already have read rights to IIS user to my BIN folder. 

Thanks for the help. 

XBAP Security


We have a small XBAP file upload app that we are having trouble deploying. We were getting security errors when we were pushing this application that we don't get when running in our development environments on our machines. We gave the XBAP app full permissions and still got errors. Then we created a personal certificate and were able to get this to work. But that means we have to load a client side certificate for each and every machine that wants to run this which is ridiculous. Does anyone have a solution for this?

Intranet Users Challenged When Using Windows Integrated Security


We've setup an intranet site using Windows Integrated Security. Its up and running and users can access it. However, they are being challenged with a login dialog for the server when they initially access the site.

Isn't is possible to configure the server so that the users aren't challenged AND are recognized as being already authenticated by Windows? We're trying to go with a seamless experience, whereby all they have to do is login to their machine like normal and then go from there.

Security Question Answer Retrieval


I know there is a method built in for retrieving the encrypted password, but how do I retrieve the encrypted security answer?

What I want to do is have a member profile update screen that the end user can update their password and security question and answer. However, when they get to this page, I want to already be showing the security question (the easy part) and its answer (the not so easy part).

I have updated web.config with passwordFormat=Encrypted and have added a machineKey with the generator (forgot the link, but located on eggheadcafe somewhere).

I haven't done ANYTHING yet, since I already have a user store with hashed information. I wanted to get some functionality done before publishing, wiping the store and recreating users (only a couple developers).
