RE: Never-ending code when checking if user is part of an Active Directory Group



I've some code to check if a user is part of an Active Directory group.

I use it on a Sharepoint 2007 Web Part.

It works fine for my account but I'm an Administator. For other users it seems like it's loading but just keeps loading.

My code is below.

Any advise appreciated.





private bool userIsInGroup(string theUser, string theGroup,

User group invalid for new document



Defined a user group and a site column of type people/group directing to this group.

Also defined a content type and added the site column to this content type.

When I create a new word document of this content type, word opens displaying my site column ok. But when I enter it, I see that all active directory (AD) entries are displayed. I want it to display only those users I added to the user group I created. Moreover, users can select any user from AD, which makes defining a user group and a site column meaningless.

This problem is only in creating new documents with Word. If I edit properties of an already existing document in my site, everything is ok: I can select only the users in the group.


What is the best way to create user account for big group of people?


I need to create individual account for a big group of people (around 200) from an Excel spreadsheet. What is the best practice? It will take too much time to create account using web form. I think there must be a way to do it. Please advice. I tried to use Stored procedures created by ASP.NET. NOT SURE whether it is a good idea.

How to check effective permissions for a user or group for a SQL server object or whole server?

Guys, How do I see effective permissions for a user or group for a SQL server object or whole server? For example, a user is not listed in security/logins, but he is a member of few groups and some of them have assigned permissions on SQL server (again either directly or through membership in other groups) Even when I select an object (a table), check properties/permission – it doesn’t let me select any principal, except those listed on security/logins… Anyway, what is the right way to see effective permissions for a user or group? Sorry for asking such a simple question, I’ve searched but found nothing relevant.

Problem with access to a user in AD group

Hi all, We are managing our security in Sharepoint (WSS 3.0) with AD groups instead of Sharepoint groups. This worked fine until now. For an unknown reason, one single user from an AD group cannot access a page (while other users from the same group can). The group is also a distribution list in AD (so it's a security group and distribution list for emails). It includes several other distribution lists such as: L-All-Corporate-Employees    L-Administration          User 1          User 2           ...     L-Accounting         User 1         ... ...   So far I never had any issue with that kind of approach,  but yesterday we published a new web part page and wanted only the corporate employees to get access to it, so I broke rights inheritance on the page and added the L-All-Corporate-Employees group with View rights. As I already said, I tested with one user from the group (let's say from the L-Administration sub-group) and it works, now I receive an email from another user (let's say from the L-Accounting sub-group) which tells me he doesn't have access... But they're all part of the L-All-Corporate-Employees group, so they should all

Checking SQL Server User Roles and Creating SQL Server Users using VB.NET

Hello gurus!Firstly I want to apologies if this question is out of place here.. if someone can direct me to the correct forumn great and Thanks!I have a VB.NET application which uses its own Backend Database (MSSQL Server). I need to distribute this application to sites where there will be an existing SQL Server.So I will need to Create the Database on this server. The Application includes methods for building the database on startup if not already connected to one.However the users windows logon may not have the correct permission to connect and create a Database on the Server. I have a DB Setup form in my application which asks for the Servname, Username, Password and Database name. I have catered for Windows Authentication and SQL Server Authentication within the form - the user makes the choice.Assuming they enter a Username and Password for SQL Server Athentication then I will be trying to connect using this user and create the database on the given server. The following is my outline logic:-                                                                  Create db Process                                                                             |                                                                             |                                                               Check Credentials                                                                   /

User Profile Service - "The specified user or domain group was not found"

Hi there, I had configured the User Profile Service and all was working well (Syncing with AD etc.). However, something has gone wrong. The services still appear to be running; both Forefront Identity Manager services are running, and the services show as 'Started' in Central Administration. The 'My Profile' and 'My Site' options have disappeared though, and browsing to the My Sites page results in an error (Could not load user profile). To make matters much worse, it seems to have also broken the Central Administration site. If I try and go to 'Manage Service Applications' I get another error (The specified user or domain group was not found). This error seems to come up on around half of the pages on the Central Administration site. Looking up the error (abb6b174-0f71-413a-a27a-41cdc87b66d0) in the logs I find this: 09/06/2010 15:35:45.44  w3wp.exe (0x0868)                        0x06A0 SharePoint Portal Server       User Profiles                  cm6y High     User Profile Application Proxy failed to retrieve partitions from User Profile Application: Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.UserProfileA

Workflow "Remove user from group"

Simple as that, anyone know of a 3rd party or simple script to get this done, its the ONLY thing holding me back from completing a major project >_<   Never have done share point custom work flows but this seems to be a time to learn >_<

Custom user selection in Person or Group type column as per other list.

I have two list in the Sahrepoint Foundation 2010 site. 1) Projects with Title and members(Person or Group - multiple selection) 2) Tasks (Team site default)  - added lookup column Projects form the first list (required) Now I want to assign task given users in the projects list. ex. I have users A,B,C,D,E and Two Project P1 and P2 I have defined that P1 project has users A,B,C so task is distributed/assigned between this members, not to D and E I need some validation or lookup which restrict selection or D and E.   Thank you.  

MOSS 2007 - SharePoint Designer Workflow failing when using group vs individual user

I am creating a simple workflow in SharePoint designer that will email a selected user when a list is modified.  I am applying the condition "if modified by" in Designer.  This condition works fine and the email is sent when I select a specific user myDomain\username.  It does not work when I attempt to associate a SharePoint group with the "if modified by" filter. In my example the list has only one SharePoint group associated with it, this is the only group with permissions for the list.  The group contains multiple users. The workflow is successful with the following scenario: if modified by myDomain\user1 or if modified by myDomain\user2 The workflow fails with the follwoing scenario: if modified by mySharePointGroupName  (which includes myDomain\user1 and myDomain\user2) This would be an ungodly if statement with a large membership SharePoint group.  This would also be a nightmare as people leave the organization and their account credentials are left in the large if statement in the workflow.  Looking for the modified condition when associated with a group seems like the logical way of doing this. I also tried "myDomain\domain users" which accounts for all user in my domain, this failed as well. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

SQL 2005: Error 15401 - Windows NT user or **group** not found


I have a fresh install of Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 Standard Edition and SQL Server 2005 x64 on top of that, with Service Pack 3. This server, SERV, is in DOMAINA which trusts (one-way) DOMAINB.

When I try to create a login for a group in my domain, I get the following error:
Msg 15401, Level 11, State 1, Procedure sp_grantlogin, Line 49
Windows NT user or group 'DOMAINA\groupname' not found. Check the name again.

I get the same error whether using "create login [domaina\groupname] from widnows", "sp_grantlogin [domaina\groupname]" or Manangement Studio.
This happens ONLY for groups , both in DOMAINA and DOMAINB domains. I can add individual users from both A and B and local computer. For local computer groups: I can add default Windows groups (like Users, Guests, Event Log Readers) by [BUILTIN\Event Log Readers], etc. but not by SERV\Event Log Readers; for custom created group MyLocal it's the other way around: I can via SERV\MyLocal but not via BUILTIN\MyLocal.

If I add a domain group from either DOMAINA or DOMAINB to a local group, whether my own or builtin, I can login to SQL Server remotely using creditentials of a user who belongs to that group (user DOMAINB\ux belongs to DOMAINB\group and DOMAINB\group to SERV\MyLocal).
