MOSS, Kerberos, and IIS7

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 13, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hi All, Done a ton of research and am still confused as to whether or not setspn needs to be run or not, and what it needs to be run for (machine name vs service account for app pool) We have 1 WFE, MOSS 2007 SP2 on a Windows 2K8 server with a SQL 2K8 separate back-end. We do not run the application pools under the network service.  We do use IPs and custom host names for the sites themselves. Can someone point me to a good article that kind of goes step by step for 2K8?  I found a Microsoft one, but that was a little confusing as it had BOTH 2K3 and 2K8 directions all mixed up.  Even our network admin was scratching his head over that one. Thanks! Veronica

Kerberos between MOSS 2007 and SSAS 2005


I realize this is probably going to be one of those vague questions that I am not going to get much help on here, but I thought I'd give this a shot before we go the MS Incident route on monday.

We have tried to setup Kerberos between MOSS 2007 AND SSAS 2005 to no avail.  We have been through the knowledge base articles outlining the setup multiple times with all the experts on MOSS and Security here where I work.  We've used other materials we have on kerberos here.  But the end result is that the double hop is not happening.  We are trying to connect three ways: excel services, ssrs 2005 in integrated mode, and Sharepoint KPI's (using analysis services).  In every case the connection is not happening.

Other details are that the ssrs integrated mode seems to be setup right because I do get a report (albiet all it has is a connection error message).  Excel services works fine if I use the unattended service account, but when I switch the odc file to windows (should cause kerberos to kick in) it fails.  When I try to add a kpi to the kpi list it can't retrieve a list of kpi's from ssas.

In all cases I am the user trying to perform these operations, and I have total access to the cube -- I'm the developer.  I have no problems connecting to the cube directly through excel, so the security at that end passes t

Security Briefs: Exploring S4U Kerberos Extensions in Windows Server 2003


Building Web sites that provide services external to the corporate firewall is tricky. Usually it's not desirable to grant corporate domain accounts to external clients, and from a purely practical standpoint Kerberos does not work well over the Internet due to the typical configuration of client-side firewalls.

MOSS 2007 and MySite in Outlook

Looking to get the My Site feature working in Outlook 2007 when you right click someone's name in an email. I've followed this (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/968115) and I can add/remove various fields but when it comes to the My Site feature it nevers show a link to the users Sharepoint My Site. It's strange because the URL for people's My Site is in AD. It's not like I even get a error message where the My Site option should be - the field never displays...help!

Unable to open pdf from document library MOSS 2007


When I click on a pdf document uploaded in a document library it comes up with a blank page. 

I guess it's trying to open pdf on the browser. I turned off "Display PDF in browser " option in Adobe Preferences, but it doesn't help, same issue.

I tried other browsers too, it's the same issue.

I am able to open all other pdf files local to my machine fine.

I am using IE 8 on my machine (Windows 7) and the Sharepoint server is MOSS 2007.



MOSS 2007 License and Pricing

I just need a small help related to MOSS 2007 License and Pricing.

The scenario is that we have the following number of servers and users are 750.

# moss-SQl1 - (DB server 1)
# moss-SQl2 - (Mirrored DB server 2)
# moss-app -    (Application server)
# WFE1 -  (Web front end server 1)
# WFE2 -           (Web front end server 2)
# MOSS-SQLWITNESS –   (witness server for database mirroring)

To my understanding we need to purchase:
MOSS 2007 Server Licenses -- 2 @ 4424$
Enterprise CALs           -- 750 @ 75$ + 94$ for standard CAL

and it amounts to: 2 * 4424 + (75+94) * 750 =   8848 + 126750 = 135598$.

I think this calculation has gone wrong somewhere. Could you please correct me if I assumed anything wrong here.

One more question is: If we purchage one CAL, can this be used by only one user?

Thanks, Chandralekha

MOSS Content Database has more documents than what's seen on browser

I am not sure how sharepoint internally handles stuff, but this is what I see. I am a SQLDBA and one of my company sharepoint group re-organized a site, by moving some files from a document library to another document library. I think she used the content deployment.

When she see the number of documents in the document library it showed 700 documents. She moved only 50 of them. I went into the database and queried the Docs and DocStreams View and I get the list of all the those documents. I see both the ones that we see on the site as well as something that we do not see on the site.


ad.DirName, ad.LeafName, TimeCreated, ads.size/1024 as [Size(KB)], SetupPath

Exporting web from MOSS 2007 to WSS 3.0

Hi! I'm trying to export SharePoint web site from MOSS 2007 to WSS 3.0.

There are some problems, which prevent me. WSS doesn't include two features: DataConnectionLibruary and TransMgmtLib. This features are not avaible on WSS, so I tried to deactivate these features using site capabilities. It wo'nt help. Here is the exception text:

Could not find Feature TransMgmtLib
at Microsoft.SharePoint.Deployment.ImportRequirementsManager.VerifyFeatureDefinition(SPRequirementObject reqObj)
at Microsoft.SharePoint.Deployment.ImportRequirementsManager.Validate(SPRequirementObject reqObj)\
at Microsoft.SharePoint.Deployment.ImportRequirementsManager.DeserializeAndValidate()
at Microsoft.SharePoint.Deployment.SPImport.VerifyRequirements()
at Microsoft.SharePoint.Deployment.SPImport.Run()
at InfoCenter.ConsoleTestingApp.Program.ImportInfoCenter()

The question is: which way must I go to solve this problem? Is it really possible (I mean export from MOSS to WSS)? And what is the purpose of TransMgmtLib feature? Thanks.
