Sharepoint site collections accessible only by system account

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 02, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 
I I have setup a VM to start palying with SP development, everything running under administrator (sql, sharepoint services....). After succefully creating the root on port 80 and a couple of site collections, whenever I shoot IE http://mymoss or any othe site collection, I go right away to the web site without the usual authentification dialog box. On the right jand side, I see I am logged in as "System account". When I try to "sign in as a different user", enter domain\administrator, who is owner, the dialog box just keeps coming back and I can not log. . Thanks in advance

Central Administration no longer accessible by any account after changing Farm Account in SharePoint

  
I have a problem, that I no longer can access Central Administration Website, only the Sharepoint itself. I was running installation of Sharepoint 2010 Server with administrative account ImTheAdmin, who is a Domain Admin in the MYDOMAIN domain. Using ImTheAdmin I installed Sharepoint 2010 on one of the Windows 2008 R2 member servers. Besides that, I made ImTheAdmin the primary administrator of the Sharepoint. ImTheAdmin became the only user of this Sharepoint 2010 server after installation.  I installed everything on one box with default installation settings. I used builtin SQL server, not Standard or Enterprise. What then happened is: Using ImTheAdmin account, I opened Central Administration Website, and it said, that I need to change the Farm Account, as the account for Farm was the default one (I think it was network service). So I created a regular domain user in AD Users and Computers called MYDOMAIN\SPFarmAccount. Then using IE, I went to the Central Administration Website page, which is meant for changing farm account usernames. I put in MYDOMAIN\SPFarmAccount down in to the form of Central Administration Website, added the check mark, that it would react to password changes, and pressed Change. Browser worked for a while, and after that nothing seemed to work. Neither my Sharepoint, nor Central Administration website. When going to Central Administra

Can't view the SharePoint Site. Explorer won't take domain account

  
Hi, I'm having issues viewing the SharePoint 2010 Site that I have deployed from any workstation. It seems that my permissions settings have broken - even though I haven't touched them. Whenever http://start/ is visited (the Intranet top site) it asks for credentials. They should have been taken from the User that was logged onto the machine. E.g. NATWIDE\UserA. After entering the credentials, it doesn't accept them, and asks for them again. And again. And then blank page. I'm not receiving the SharePoint "restricted access" page... HOWEVER, when I log into the website via Mozilla Firefox - it appears that the credentials are fine, and it works according to the permissions set for the site from within SharePoint. Does anyone have any idea why this would be happening. I'm completely stumped and I can't find a similar issue anywhere else. I have installed a Stand-alone installation of SharePoint 2010 Server Enterprise on Server 2008. The account that installed the SharePoint server and is a FARM Administrator, can't even log in to view the page. Cheers, Stu.

How to change the System Account into Domain Administrator account in Sharepoint?

version dependency while backup restore of SharePoint 2007 Site Collections

  

hi all

I am aware of a version dependency on the stsadm -o backup/restore operation.

But will the same dependency exist for a content DB backup restore..

i.e. for example will we able to restore a content DB backup taken from a server with version say 12.0.0.7777 to a server with say 12.0.0.6666 assuming that the versions of SQL is the same in both cases.

Will the version difference in SQL create issues

Thanks in advance

Customized sharepoint portal is not accessible to normal users unless a site admin access the site o

  

Hello there

I have created a sharepoint portal and customized it. I have created my own master page and there are many webparts implemented. This has been hosted in a MOSS server. When a normal user is trying to access the portal first thing in the morning, he is getting a "You are not authorized to view this page" error. But when a site admin access the site, there is no issue and he is able to access the site. The site admin does nothing in the site and once he has logged in to the site,  the user is able to access the site without any trouble.

I have tried to look into the master page gallery and has given full access to the users for "Style Resource Readers" user group. Even now the user is facing the same issue.

Kindly help in this regards,

Thanks

Host-named site collections and content deployment jobs (SharePoint 2007 Internet facing Web Sites)

  

Hi.

I have an editing web application with multiple site collections (only accessible internally on a dedicated port), and I've one public facing web application (on port 80). Now I want to create several host-named site collections in the public facing web application (to limit the number of web apps in the farm), and then use content deployment jobs to push the content from the site collections on the editing web app into these host-named site collections.

Does anyone have any experience with this?
Do you see any issues?

Regards,
Frode


Downloading a document from a sharepoint site to local file system, copy web service returns null

  
Hi Guys,
               I am trying to get this done for the last 2 days and I am still banging my head to the wall.
All I need to do is to download files from my sharepoint site library that uses integrated windows authentication. I was using copy webservice : getItem method to accomplish this.

CopyService.GetItem(copySource, out myFieldInfoArray, out myByteArray);

Problem : myByteArray is always returned as NULL

Note: I have tried the same with another site that uses forms authentication but the result was the same (NULL !!)


This is my code:

CopyService.

Copy copy = new CopyService.Copy();

Cannot log in into SharePoint site with administrator account

  

I have set up a SharePoint environment where I have set up a test web application and a site collection.  It is important to mention that everything has been set up using the administrator account.  Once I try to logging in using administrator account it fails after 3 tries and it just give me a blank screen.
I also checked IIS for security setting but I do not see anything wrong!
As a side note I am able to connect Central administrator without any problems using the administrator account.
I think it is a security setting but I do not know where to start
Help is greatly appreciate

sharepoint 2007 showing System Account instead of Username / full name

  
When i login with my username & password into sharepoint (2007) site, it displays as a "System Account" instead of my username or my full name on the top right corner of the website. What ever changes i make inside the site, for example upload a file, post a comment, sharepoint marks it as a System account instead of my name.

Can someone help me figure it out why ?

Thanks.

How to make my SharePoint 2010 site accessible from internet?

  

I have a sharepoint site on a production server here "http://servername:10500/sites/mysite" which accepts AD accounts - I'd need to make this accessible from internet; how could I do that?

Our admin has mapped our "http://subdomain.company.net" in DNS to point to the above url but I'm getting the following error message:

"Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage"

In SharePoint central administration of the "http://servername:10500" web application, I have added an internal url of "http://subdomain.company.net" for Internet Zone; not sure if I should have done that?

what else do I have to do?

Many thanks.
