SharePoint, FIM and AD network traffic

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 07, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 
Hi, I have a small but can be a complicated question: I have a forrest with alot of dc's around the world. The most of them are on WAN. When I use the UPS service it will generate traffic, and it will look through all the Parent and Child domains. Is the load that is generated by FIM from scale 1(low) to 5(high) based on a single synch per week? Is the load that is generated on network from scale 1(low) to 5(high)? Could some one tell me more, or have some more info about the load that is generated by the UPS service? Regards

How to setup port forwarding for SharePoint server on home network

  
I have a SharePoint 2010 server running on my home network.  I want to be able to access the server from the internet and edit pages, create sites etc.  The web applications is running on a specific port (1234) not port 80. I've configured my router to forward port 1234 to the server's IP address and I can access the site fine from the internet using the routers IP address and adding the port number.  Viewing the site works fine but the problem is when I try to access a page in the _layouts folder for any of the sub sites I get a "File not found" error.  Also, if I go to a sub site and create a new site (no _layouts page required) it works but the new site is created directly under the root and not the sub site. It seems that the port forwarding from the router is messing up the context for the _layouts folder.  Is there any way around this? Thanks.

Encrypted network traffic

  
I have an MSSQL 2000 server that has an SSL certificate. In the SQL Server network utility, 'Force protocol encryption' is checked. Looking at the traffic with Wireshark, it's no longer in plain text. However, the certificate is issued to say a.mydomain.com. If I create a dns record such that b.mydomain.com resolves to the same address and then use Query Analyzer to connect to b.mydomain.com everything still works. I get no sort of warning like I would if I used a web browser to visit an https site where the certificate had been issued to a different name. Is this to be expected? Regards Richard

Unable to pass default network credentials from a .NET / SharePoint application to Web Services

  

Require some help in passing the authentication of a logged-in user to a web services (which is a wsdl file added as web reference to the application) from an ASP.NET application/ SharePoint 2010 portal. When the application calls the web service, the default network credentials need to be passed to the web service to get authenticated to use the data repository. This web service is used for searching a data repository depending on the logged in user's credentials and search query.

We have made necessary changes required in the applications like.

Necessary changes in web.config (like authentication mode to Windows, impersonation is made true). Install client certificates to the trusted location.

Enable IE 8.0 to use Integrated Windows authentication (Internet Explorer -->Tools-->Internet Options -->Advanced--> Security --> Enable Integrated Windows Authentication.

Accessing Sharepoint 2010 root throught network drive

  

When I try to go to \\sp_domain\ I am presented with 2 network shares which I can't open afe15108-b347-4a9d-ba3a-1426636526d4-query-1  and afe15108-b347-4a9d-ba3a-1426636526d4-query-2.

If I navigate to \\sp_domain\site I get a list of libraries and sub sites as one would expect.

Does any one have any thoughts as to why I am unable to see list of sites and libraries at the root level?


app.config dump of network traffic

  

I needed to trace some network traffic on my .Net application and found that you can modify the config file and dump traffic to a text file.

While that is great news for debugging, what is to keep any bloody soul from doing the same thing and dumping credit card traffic to a log file?


Problem adding Sharepoint Web Share to My Network Places (Help Please!)

  

I'm having a unique problem I think... I've googled this every which way I could think of but haven't seen anyone have the same problem.

Here is what is happening. I have a client uses My Network Places and have created sharepoint webshare "shortcuts" in my network places. However on one particular computer instead of it creating a webshare it is creating a UNC shortcut.

What I am doing is the following.

1) Open My Network Places

2) Click the Add a Network Place

3) Choose the option for "Another network location or website"

4) I enter the URL of the webserver: Http://webserver/development (copied directly from IE)

5) I confirm the name and finish.

Here is the problem. Instead of the shortcut reading as Http://webserver/development it reads as \\webserver\development and has basically converted it to a UNC share. On most of the PC's it creates a folder with a globe icon and when the users go to save or attach files the format is very similar to sharepoint. When this PC attempts to open the shortcut they get your standard windows folder structure.

Has anyone seen this or been able to fix it?

 


Domain Group Policy to Map user folder in Sharepoint Library to network drive

  

This is complicated- and try as I might I can't get it right. I am running SBS 2008 SP2 with WSS 3.0 SP3.

I have my sharepoint site at http://companyweb. I have WebClient and WebPublishing services enabled.

The scenario I am trying for:

I have a document library in Sharepoint called Wellness Boxes. Inside this library each domain user has a folder- these folders are to store personal files. Each folder is configured with permissions via Sharepoint so that only the user and their direct manager has access. When a user enters the library, they only see their own folder.

I am trying to map this situation to network places. I want users to be able to click Start>Computer>Network and see a drive labeled Companyweb. Entering that drive will show them the document library Wellness Boxes, and only their own folder will be visible.

I need to do this at a domain level through Group Policy so it applies to all users and all computers. Drive letters do not matter. Permissions do matter.

Can anyone help me please?

Is it possible to have only 2 network adapters for 5 SharePoint web applications with 2008 R2 Window

  

Hi All,

I have an existing 2003 R2 SharePoint 2007 farm, and have set up a 2008 R2 SharePoint 2010 farm that we are going to move to through a database attach upgrade. I've got two web front ends on both farms. The 2003 farm has been working great with NLB for a couple of years now.

Issue: I've got five web applications on SharePoint that must be load balanced. I can only have 4 Network adapters due to limitations with the number of adapters and VMWare. This worked fine in the 2003 farm, as I just had one adapter dedicated to the machine itself and the other dedicated to the 5 NLB applications (I just added additional IPs to the one net adapter through advanced TCP/IP properties).

Should this work on the 2008 R2 farm? Necessarily when you add additional IPs to the net adapter through advanced TCP/IP you can no longer work with NLB through the NLB interface--you must add the NLB IP to each of the front ends through advanced TCP/IP and then ensure that the web app on IIS on each front end is associated with that NLB IP.

I've been testing--and it does seem to be working, but kind of slow.


Map SharePoint Document Library as network drive

  

I'm trying to map a SharePoint document library to a network drive but I'm getting so errors one is

 

"The drive could not be mapped because no network was found."

 

and the other is

 

"The workstation driver is not installed."

 

I have no clue what is wrong, connecting from another computer to another server works fine, but from this one i can't connect to any sharepoint document library.

 

Using the view in explorer from the SharePoint site gives me access to the folder without any problems. So I guess something is wrong on this end.

 

Running Windows XP Pro SP2 and the Webclient service is started.

 

Can someone please help? 


Prompted for network credentials via internet while accessing SSRS reports in SharePoint integrated

  
Hi

We have developed a SharePoint- FBA site and published it through ISA.  The site, among many features, displays SSRS reports through Performance Point Monitoring dashboards.  SSRS is using windows integrated authentication (Kerberos).  Through intranet, the reports are getting displayed without any issue, but, through internet, its getting prompted when we try to access the reports for the first time after logging into the site using FBA credentials.  When we enter valid domain credentials after being prompted, it starts displaying reports without any issues and never prompts again for that FBA session.

We have been trying to eliminate the prompt through internet, but couldn't do so. 

Has anyone experienced the same before?

Any help is appreciated.


SharePoint 2010 Network Load Balancing and Kerberos Authentication

  

Hello all. Thanks for taking a look at this...

To put it simply, kind of, I have a SharePoint 2010 farm with 1 web application (non default port) using kerberos authentication with 2 load balanced web front end servers.

Example:
web01.domain.com:8090
web02.domain.com:8090
NLB = web.domain.com

The NLB is setup at web.domain.com (on port 80), as mentioned above, and directs traffic to either web server on port 8090.

Notes:
An SPN has been setup for the NLB url with the web applications service account.
Delegation has been setup on the web app account and the web servers.
I am not using host headers for this web app.
I have setup the useapppoolcredentials instead of disabling kernel mode in IIS7 (tried it with it disabled too)

I tried this just in case...Registered SPNs for both web servers, with and without port numbers, and with and without fqdns.

The Problem
Kerberos authentication will not work when the NLB is set at port 80. If I set the NLB to match the web application port, 8090, kerberos authentication works fine and all is well.

This may be an obvious issue, but i cant put my finger on what I am missing.

Simply put, i would just like to have the users type in web.domain.com (the NLB url) instead of having to put in web.dom

Changing the graphics on the home page of a SharePoint site

  
When you create a site in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services by using the default Team Site template, the home page includes two default graphics. A Windows SharePoint Services graphic appears in the body of the page, and a picture of a house in a circle appears near the site title. You can change these graphics to customize your site. Changing the smaller graphic requires a Windows SharePoint Services compatible Web page editor

Displaying SharePoint lists in Web Parts

  
When you create a built-in or custom list in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services, Windows SharePoint Services creates a Web Part, a basic building block of a SharePoint site, to display that list. These Web Parts are called List View Web Parts. Windows SharePoint Services stores List View Web Parts in the site collection Web Part gallery. (The site collection Web Part gallery is the most central gallery of Web Parts for a work group. By default, the gallery name is the name of the site, such as "Our Team Site Web Part Gallery." )

Take a tour of your SharePoint site

  
What is a SharePoint site for?
A SharePoint site is a Web site that provides a central storage and collaboration space for documents, information, and ideas. A SharePoint site is a tool for collaboration, just like a telephone is a tool for communication, or a meeting is a tool for decision making. A SharePoint site helps groups of people (whether work teams or social groups) share information and work together. For example, a SharePoint site can help you:

Coordinate projects, calendars, and schedules.
Discuss ideas and review documents or proposals.
Share information and keep in touch with other people.

Six easy ways to customize your site using Web Parts in SharePoint

  
Becoming familiar with Web Part customization techniques gives you a range of page-customization choices. For example, you can customize your site's home page so that it displays the specific information that your team needs. You can rearrange the list items on the home page, add lists, and even change the images on the home page. As you become more familiar with Web Part Page customization techniques, you can build interactive Web Part Pages that makes the data in lists more dynamic and useful, and you can add new Web Parts that provide access to external data and Web services.

Working with SharePoint document libraries

  
Document libraries are collections of files that you can share with team members on a Web based on Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services. For example, you can create a library of common documents for a project, and team members can use their Web browsers to find the files, read them, and make comments. Users with Microsoft Office 2003 can check out and edit the files as if they resided on a local or network drive.

By default, your team Web site comes with a built-in document library named Shared Documents, which is listed on the Quick Launch bar as well as on the Documents and Lists page.
