MySite Alternate Access Mappings not working

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 13, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hi, I had some problems with my upgraded SP2010 server last week. Something happend and the web.config files for each web application was reset to base settings. I had some backup on these files and got everything working again. The only thing that is NOT working is Alternate access mappings for MySites. if I use the server:port url all the webparts work just fine. But when I set it to the AAM I used before the "crash" no webparts work. It is just the message: Web Part Error: "This page has encountered a critical error. Contact your system administrator if this problem persists. " Does anyone have an idea where to start looking for bad configuration? Regards Joakim Gustafsson Stratiteq Sweden

Reporting Services and Sharepoint Integration - Sharepoint Alternate Access Mappings (Zones)

I get the following error when I try to navigate to a report/model/data source, stored in a Sharepoint Document Library using a Sharepoint URL based on an Extranet or Intranet zone - but it works OK using the url for the Default zone: System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException: The specified path refers to a SharePoint zone that is not supported. The default zone path must be used. ---> Microsoft.ReportingServices.Diagnostics.Utilities.SecurityZoneNotSupportedException: The specified path refers to a SharePoint zone that is not supported. The default zone path must be used. Is this a limitation of the SQLRS-WSS3 integration or is there a workaround? Many thanks to anyone who can help!

My memberships not updating after renaming alternate access mappings and IIS hostheader



After upgrading fram MOSS2007 to Sharepoint 2010 via the database attach model "My Memberships"on MySite are not being updated.

During the update session, our host headers and alternate access mappings had af different name than they were supposed to have after a successfull upgrade. This was to insure that users had access to the old platform in a read only state while upgrading.

After a successfull upgrade the old farm was closed down and alternate access mappings and IIS hostheaderes were nenamed to their normal/old names on the 2010-farm.

However, in the time where the 2010-farm was temporarely named the "My memberships"-list was generated with these URLs. After renaming the my memberships-list is not being updated - even not with new memberships on the new farm. By looking into old threads I have tried this to resolve the problem, but without any luck:

  1. stsadm -o deleteolddatabases 0
  2. checking the timer jobs regarding profile sync i CA (ok)
  3. reset of the search index and initiating a full crawl
  4. a full profile import from AD

All without any luck.

Alternate Access mapping - Intranet site

Hi All, I'm banging my head against a brick wall here trying to setup an alternate access mapping for an intranet site in SharePoint 2007. I have a default site setup which has the following public default URL: http://SERVERNAME:2586 I want users to access the site using the URL http://Intranet Now from reading about alternate access mappings I thought this should be as simple as adding an internal url of http://intranet under the intranet zone. With this set up I preceded to add the binding to the IIS website. I added the binding with All Assigned IP addresses, port 2586, and host as Intranet. The final thing I did to check this was to add an entry to the hosts file for the server IP address with the host name of intranet. This was followed by a flush of the DNS cache on the server. Whgen trying to access the site using the URL i now get the IIS7 welcome page, but not the SharePoint site I expected. Can anyone point me in the direction of what i've done wrong, Its got me stumped. Cheers, Grant

Alternate Access Mapping Problems

I have set up a windows server 2003 and sharepoint 3.0 on the same computer. First, I set up two "New Host A" in my DNS Server - Forward Look up Zones and then I tried to access the websites. No luck.  I went to the run command and pinged both sites to see if they worked. They pinged as they should. Then I went into Sharepoint and set up the Alternate Access Mappings with a default and extranet zone. A login box appeared which won't accept my administrator password or anyone else's.  I can log directly into all site collections that I have developed. I saw that you advised someone with regards to their login and browser but could you explain in more detail what you mean by that?  I am a bit stupid sometimes. :-) I also changed all the properties in my DNS Server host records to have full administrator privileges. Can you please advise if I should take that back off as a precautionary security measure. It didn't resolve my problem anyway. Thanking you in advance. Tracey

Changed DNS, IIS mappings and AAM for mysite - "My News feed,profile,content" okay but MySite link s



Sharepoint 2010 enterprise, I created a DNS entry and AAM for MySite - qnetmysite.company.local and all worked okay, then the customer wanted to change the URL used to access my site to "myqnet" so we deleted the DNS entry and recreated a new one. I changed the bindings in IIS and AAM to point to "myqnet.company.local". I can enter http://myqnet.company.local" and navigate to My News feed, My Profile, My content but when I try to navigate to MYSite the URL it takes me to is the old URL qnetmysite.company.local and internet explorer of course can't find the site. I have done an IIS reset, flushed the DNS on the local PC, when I mouse over the MySite link I can see the wrong URL.

Please can somebody help me?

Search crawl to SPS3://mysite.domain.com gives "Access Denied"


I am having an issue with indexing user profiles with the SPS3 protocol handler.   Each time it runs I get an "Access Denied" error in my crawl logs.   I have verified that the default content search account has full read permissions on the web application.   I have verified that I don't have a  loop back check issue.

In my environment I have 3 seperate web applications.  One hosts intranet publishing content, one hosts collaboration content and the third is for the mysites.   The web applications all use host headers and share a single IP address.   Everything is over HTTP.

My dev farm is configured with a single web front end, a single services server and a SQL server.    The services server is running the search admin and crawl components.  The web front end hosts the query component.

In the search content source the URL being crawled is SPS3://mysites.domain.com and http://mysites.domain.com.   In the crawl logs it shows the following error for SPS3://mysites.domain.com:

Access is denied. Verify that either the Default Content Access Account has access to t

anonymous access not working


I have follow all the instruction provided for turning on anonymous access, but for some reason my site is still prompting for user name/passwrd. I'm using sharepoint 2010 on server 2008, is there a lock down somewhere that prevents anonymous access. I've follow the instruction everywhere (too many to list).

Alerts not working for Lists on FBA / Anonymous access site


Hi Folks,

I have a WSS3.0 site that allows anonymous access as well as using FBA. Another web application is configured to use the same content database but set with windows authentication.

Anonymous users are allowed to post to a few Lists. I am trying to create an alert for an authenticated user (either FBA or Windows). I receive the "You have successfully created an alert" email, but no emails are sent when new items are added. This is the case for all new list items whether they are added by an authenitcated user or an anonymous one.

I am sure the site config is set correctly (but I will double-check). Is there any reason for the behaviour I am experiencing? I'm not at the latest patch level (we are using the June 2009 CU), so perhaps this was an issue that has been resolved in a later patch/update that I ought to apply?

Would appreciate any gems of information anyone might have on the subject before I go away and write my own event handler to send an email!!!


MOSS 2007 MySite not working after deleting & readding an exchange account


Hi All,

One of our users had their AD account deleted and readded in Exchange, and now they cannot access their mysite, as the old profile information still exists. How and where would I fix this please?

As a test, I recreated this issue and found that deleting the old mysite entirely meant the new user profile could go and recreate a new mysite, but I need to know if I can somehow re-link the old mysite with the new profile?


Many thanks!
