To get Stored Credentials I have following code and its working fine. using (SPSite site = new SPSite("http://vtlssp2010Dev")) //using (SPSite site = new SPSite("http://" + System.Environment.MachineName + "/sites/Site_Name"))d { Console.WriteLine(site.RootWeb.CurrentUser.Name); SPServiceContext context = SPServiceContext.GetContext(site); prov.Context = context; try { SecureStoreCredentialCollection cc = prov.GetCredentials(appID); foreach (SecureStoreCredential c in cc) { IntPtr ptr = System.Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal.SecureStringToBSTR(c.Credential); string sDecrypString = System.Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal.PtrToStringUni(ptr); Console.WriteLine(sDecrypString); } } catch (Exception ex) { Console.WriteLine("Unable to get credentials for application " + appID); Console.WriteLine(ex.Message); } Console.ReadLine(); } } All I want is to programmatically do set credentials like explained in this example on msdn. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff798456.aspx Please help.

Not able to manage Secure Store Service in sharepoint 2010

  

I created a new instance of Secure Service Store and then when I click Manage system gives the following error message:

Cannot complete this action as the Secure Store Shared Service is not responding. Please contact your administrator.

I read somewhere to ensure the service is started.  when I check under server services I see it is started.  but when I stop it and restart it again it gives an error that Object Already Exists.  I found the only way to start it is to delete Application service I created.  But with this I'm not able to complete my settings for perfomance point services which requires secure store services to configure the unattended account.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks


SharePoint 2010 Search Service Application: "All Content" scope contains 0 items?

  
I've encountered a nasty bug in our setup. Our Search Service Application manages to crawl all content just fine. However, the scopes don't work. We've got a total of 570 items currently in our crawl database. 350 of these are of class 'People', and appear in the 'People' scope. The remaining 220 items should appear in 'All Content' as part of the intra (sites, documents etc), however the 'All Content' scope reports 0 items. I've tried the following: -Creating custom scopes (still 0 items) -Recreating the Search Service Application twice -Tried different accounts as the content access account. -Ensuring that the content access accounts do have 'full read policy' -Checked the crawl log for successful content (such as sites and documents). However, despite my efforts I still get 0 items for 'All Content'.  Has anyone else encountered this problem, or do you have any recommendation for us? Currently I don't see any other option than to reinstall everything.

problem rename sharepoint 2010 search service application admin database

  
Hi all, i have a problem that hopefully someone has an answer to.  i am not too familiar with sharepoint so please excuse my ignorance. we have sharepoint 2010 on a windows 2008r2 server.  everything seems to work fine.  but as you know, the default database names are horrendous.  i have managed to rename all of them, except for the "search service application" admin database. the default is: Search_Service_Application_DB_<guid> the other 2 databases (crawl and property) were renamed without a problem. we are following the article from technet on how to rename the search service admin db (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-nz/library/ff851878%28en-us%29.aspx).  it says to enter the following command: $searchapp | Set-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication -DatabaseName "new database name" -DatabaseServer "dbserver" however, i get an error about identity being null.  no big deal, i add the -Identity switch and the name of my search service application.  but the real problem comes the error it throws:   Set-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication : The requested database move was aborted as the associated search application is not paused. At line:1 char:54 + $searchapp | Set-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication <<<<  -Identity "Search Service Application" -DatabaseName "ShareP

Search Service Application missing in SharePoint 2010

  
I installed SharePoint 2010 (Enterprise edition), enabled Enterprise features but it is missing Search Service Application when I look under Central Administration > Application Management > Manage Service Application.   When I click on New it doesn't even list "Search Service Application".    When I goto Upgrade and Patch Management > Check Product and Patch Installation Status, it tells me that "Microsoft Search Server 2010 Core" was Installed.  Under Manage services of server, "Sharepoint Foundation Search" is started.  Does anyone have an idea why the "Search Service Application" is missing and how can I install it?

Secure Service Store and custom web application.

  
 Hello All,  I have a problem for which I would like to use the Secure Service Store.  I've searched for similar solutions involving the SSS but I've not had any success yet.  Maybe I'm missing something obvious or going about it the wrong way.   We have an external application (actually, a number of external applications) we'd like to embed in our SharePoint site using an iframe or the Page Viewer web part.  The embedded application uses a custom forms based authentication scheme and I want to prevent the situation where a user has to log into our application then log into the embedded application.  Is there anything available the help post the credentials from SSS to the custom application?  The only think I can think to do is write some code that mimics a post to the login page of the embedded app and, if needed, write a stripped down or simpler login page for the embedded app to make that easier.  For my immediate task I have quite a bit of control over the source of both application and could write custom code on both sides if I had to, but I'd rather have a solution that only involve configuration or, at most, custom code on the SharePoint side.  Thanks,  Brandon

Sharepoint Search and Secure Store Service not working

  
Hi There I am having issues with a few Sharepoint Services When I try to search for a document on any SharePoint site, I recieve an "Internal Server Error Exception". However when I checked the log files, I couldn't find any error messages matching with the given correlation ID. The search was working 2-3 weeks ago. Also 2 weeks ago, I started receiving warnings in the Health Analyzer saying “The Security token service is not available”. I am wondering if the security token service breaking down is related to the search issues, and if so what suggestions I could try to fix this issue. I am also unable to access the secure store service. In Central Administration->Application Management->Manage Service Applications, I try to click on the Secure Store Service, but there is no Proxy attached to the service, and I receive a message “No Secure Store Service Application Proxy ID was found”. When I check the Logfile, I receive these errors: 08/10/2010 11:11:32.94               w3wp.exe (0x18E4)                                      0x0ADC SharePoint Foundation     &nb

Unable to set up a new Secure Store Service Application in a single-server installation

  

Problem: after initial SharePoint installation, I tried to add the Secure Store Service Application under "Manager Services Applications".  The process screen returns something like "The time job created.  But failed to start in one or more servers in the farm."  Further investigation found that in the SQL Server, the secure service account was not added under the Login user accounts.  The Secure_Store_Service_DB has been created, but not under the name of secure store service account.  In another word, the database was created but the action seems to be incomplete.

Background: this is a single server farm installation on Windows Server 2008 R2, SQL Server 2008 R2, with AD CS and AD DS, DNS roles enabled on the same box.  The configuration task was running with the farm admin account which is also a domain admin, and has dbcreator, securityadmin, and sysadmin roles in the SQL server.

 


SharePoint 2010 Service Application Proxy & My Site Settings

  

I have a SharePoint 2010 Site Configured with Claims based FBA. I have also made My Site work with FBA.

My question is:

In 2007 I would create a seperate SSP for FBA based my site and Set all configuration there. As SharePoint 2010 supports Service Application Proxy how can I isolate FBA based My site and Other AD sites.

While I was able to select the required services for my Site using Configure service application associations link in Central admin, all changes I make in My Site Settings reflect for both FBA & AD based application.

How do I isolate My Site changes ?? I wanted to have different configuration for each of the My Sites

I am planing to publish Access database MyDB into Access Service application in SharePoint 2010 server farm. MyDB has following tables,

SharePoint 2010 Long Starting if start workflow programatically

  

In SharePoint 2010, I'm starting workflow #2 programatically from my workflow #1. See code below:

					SPList currentList = web.Lists[new Guid(ListId)];
					SPListItem currentListItem = currentList.GetItemById(ListItem);

					//resolve any lookup parameters
					string workflowId = base.ProcessStringField(WorkflowIdentifier);

					//find workflow association by name
					SPWorkflowAssociation workflowAssoc = currentList.WorkflowAssociations.GetAssociationByName(workflowId, Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture);

					if (workflowAssoc != null)
					{
						//start the workflow
						SPWorkflow workflow = site.WorkflowManager.StartWorkflow(currentListItem, workflowAssoc, workflowAssoc.AssociationData, SPWorkflowRunOptions.Synchronous);
					}

And workflow #2  will hang with Starting status (1-10 minutes), Then the workflow #2 status would be modified  to Completed.

I couldn't find how to start the workflow # 2 immediately and complete immediately without several minutes delay
