Sharepoint My Sharepoint Sites not updating.


The sharepoint My Sharepoint Sites list will not update.  It last updated with the results from 4/22/10. I determined that by looking in out Share Sevices Administration  database in the memberGroup table.  It shows current entries for everything prefaced by Mailto:   So the distribution groups are updating however, nothing is updating for the actual sites.  New sites have been added since this time and Membership in the Members group of these sites has  changed as well but none of these changes have been reflected i nthe My sharepoint sites.   These changes also do not appear in the My Memberships portion of someone's My Site.  Any suggestions?


We are running Sharepoint 2007 SP2 with W.S.S. 3.0 on a Windows srver 2003 R2 SP2 server.    No changes were made to the system on the date in question.  Perhaps 3 new team sites has been added in the days leading up to the problem. 

We see no errors in any of the timer jobs or the event logs that appear related to the issue.

Updating Config Files in Sharepoint Farm

I am trying to update config files web.comnfig in the Virtual Directory of my server so that users are allowed to upload more that 50 MB of files in my IIS 7 server. Everytime i do the update it works fine but after few days when there are few changes then it removes the added elements itself and restore in the Original Stage. I used to edit my config files manually. I found a way of creating a config files and saving it to the Config Directory under 12 Hive in Server.

I have setup a test SharePoint 2010 Farm. I will be using this as a test upgrade of a current live SharePoint 2007 Farm. The database attach method will be used. I have replicated the web application and AAM settings of the SharePoint 2007 Farm to the SharePoint 2010 Farm and have made the 2010 Farm a DC in a new Forest. I don't want to join this to the current domain at the moment. It also has SQL server 2005 with SP3 and cumulative update 3 installed. I have just setup the User Profiles Serice Application and when I go to Manage it, I get this. Error An unexpected error has occurred.   Troubleshoot issues with Microsoft SharePoint Foundation.

SharePoint 2010 Server: Cannot manage all user profiles from upgraded MOSS SSP database

I have upgraded an SSP database to SharePoint 2010 and successfully performed User Profile Synchronization with Active Directory, however I cannot manage ALL of the user profiles in the database. I go to "Manage User Profiles" in Central Administration and perform a filtered search (i.e. I want all DOMAIN accounts beginning with "j" so I search for "DOMAIN\j" in Manage User Profiles), but I don't receive ALL the user profiles back. I receive about 8 in return when I know there are about 20 starting with "j". If I create a new AD account beginning with "j" it is successfully synched with SharePoint 2010 and I see it in the Manage User Profiles. I ran an stsadm -o sync to clear any old synchronization information, and the Forefront Synchronization Service appeared to pull in many changes to existing accounts (including ones I can't currently manage), but I still cannot manage them using "Manage User Profiles". I really need to be able to manage all the profiles so I can manually edit some fields. Can anyone please help? Thanks in advance.

Updating an InfoPath Form Library Template breaks preexisting SharePoint List Views

When updating an InfoPath template (e.g. adding a new field), any views I have created on the library lose their filters and sorting, as if the columns on which they were built no longer exist.  Has anyone else encountered this and, if so, is there a solution? V/r Noelle

Sharepoint user profiles in C:\Documents and Settings on server, WSS_AdminService.log

Hi!I've discovered today that desktop user profiles for certain sharepoint users are being created on the server in the Documents and Settings folder. Only 50 have been created - a small portion of our user base; Every folder is being created with a WSS_AdminService.log file in it, which is approx 380 mb in size...its definitly starting to take its toll on storage space.I can't see any pattern as to why a folder is created for a particular user or not.Does anyone have any ideas on what could be causing this, or how to control it? Thanks so much!Z

Issues with updating Lists with Manager Names and User Profile Imports in SharePoint 2010 Server

I am having a curious problem with SharePoint 2010 Server. I have imported all the user profiles of our organization into SharePoint User Profile Service Application from our Active Directory. When the Manager name imports it comes in as domain/login. The organizational browser seems to work for MOST people, but not all. I believe this is contributing to my second problem, which is, I have setup a very simple workflow in SharePoint Designer that simply looks up the persons Manager, then places that information into a field called "Approval 1". After that it looks at Approval 1 and get the Manager name and populated "Approval 2" with that information, and so on. I have used an Impersonation Step as the Farm Administrator in the workflow and I have done it without the impersonation step. Both results in the same problem. When I enter my name into the list and run the workflow it runs beautifully give every manager up the chain to the top. However, if I put any other person's name in there it gives me the error "Workflow failed to get user profile for user: ____". I went to my supervisor's office and asked him to run the workflow. Using his login he had the exact same result--if my name was in there it worked great, otherwise, it gave an error. Any help with this strange error would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks

Updating list item values in SharePoint Designer using code

Is it possible to programmatically modify the SharePoint objects using SharePoint Designer Object Model. By that I mean coding in SharePoint Designer (not Visual Studio). For example, can we access the list items of a list programmatically and change their values? I can do all this in Visual Studio using SharePoint Object Model but I don’t find a way of achieving this by using programming in SharePoint Designer. I searched through http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb208639(office.12).aspx but no success. If the answer is yes. Can someone please give example(s) or point to some articles etc? Thanks in advance.

SSRS Reports Not updating in Sharepoint 2007


Hello All,

I created some reports in SSRS 2008, The reports data source is a live transactional data source. The reports are to auto refresh every minute displaying any new info that  was put on to the system in the last minute. The auto refresh property on each report is set to 60 sec. to trigger the refreshing of the reports.

The problem: when i run the reports in the report manager the every thing works fine, the report runs, refreshes, and the figures are updated.

I am now displaying these reports in Sharepoint 2007 via the "report viewer" facilitated by the RSWebPart that i installed on the Sharepoint instance. 

The reports are displayed fine in the viewer, but my problem is that it does not auto refresh with the updated info.


I figure it is a caching issue but how to get around? HELP!

Sharepoint Outlook Public Contacts Firstname Lastname Not Updating Correctly


Users using Outlook 2007 Sharepoint public contacts have been having problems where firstname lastname have amalgamated into lastname.

First Name John
Last Name: Doe

Appears as

First Name:
Last Name: John Doe

I had the user change the first name/last name within Outlook Sharepoint public contacts but this does not reflect the change in other users Outlook contacts.

e.g. User 1 (Outlook 2007) modifies existing contact to

First Name: John
Lastname: Doe

update SharePoint calendar while updating Outlook Calendar


Is it possible to synchronize calendars between Outlook and SharePoint such that a user in Outlook can elect, on any given calendar entry, to have that entry post to a SharePoint calendar AT THE SAME TIME?  Our division has a presence on our SharePoint intranet site.  On the site is a calendar that shows vacation time of all division employees.  What we hope to be able to do is that when an employee enters there vacation on their own Outlook calendar, that it updates the Employee Vacation Calendar on the SharePoint site too. 

I am aware of the ability to synchronize calendars, and have the SP calendar show up in Other Calendars in Outlook, and then drag a copy from the Outlook calendar to the SharePoint calender as shown here: http://sharepoint.microsoft.com/Blogs/GetThePoint/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?List=8d9e2a99-f288-47c2-916b-2f32864f7b82&ID=73&Web=5e4647a0-e7d0-4626-b71c-b1ff06402465, but we are hoping to even eliminate that copying step.

Sharepoint 2010 - breadcrumb not updating correctly from layouts.sitemap



I have some custom ASPX pages that I used in Sharepoint 2007 that I am now putting onto Sharepoint 2010. They use the layouts.sitemap file to update the breadcrumb trail when they are navigated to in Sharepoint. However when I put them into Sharepoint 2010 and make the same modifications to layouts.sitemap the breadcrumb trail is not updating correctly. It is only showing the current page in the breadcrumb and not where it was navigated from.

Any ideas why this would not work in Sharepoint 2010?

Many thanks,



Updating "Modified By" Column Via SharePoint Web Services


Here is my situation:  I have a web app running on a non-SharePoint machine that uses the SharePoint web services (specifically, the Copy web service) on another box to shoot documents to the Shared Documents library.  That works all fine and dandy.  Then a requirement came in that fields need to be updated when the document is uploaded.  Again, not much problem there.  However, then a requirement came in where they wanted the user's name displayed in the "Modified By" column.  When documents are currently uploaded, the "Modified By" column displays the name of the resource account that the web app runs under on the remote machine.  This isn't really helpful to users.  They want to know the name of the user who uploaded the document, not the resource account they were impersonating in order to upload the document.  Is it possible to accomplish this using the FieldInformation class that accompanies the Copy web service provided by SharePoint?  I tried something like the following but it did not work:

fieldInfo = new SPCopyWS.FieldInformation();
fieldInfo.Type = SPCopyWS.FieldType.Text;
fieldInfo.DisplayName = "Modified By";
fieldInfo.Value = "Ruslander, Andrew";
