stsadm Import command + include user security



When I move sites from test to staging to production, I am using the stsadm –o export command with the –includeusersecurity option in the staging environment.  In production environment, I then use the stsadm –o import command with the –includeusersecurity option.  I was assuming that this option was bringing over the security on the exported site only.  This does not seem to be the case.

Last night I exported one sub site to produtction.  Today, I was notified that the security groups on other sub sites have been altered.  


So why is it when using the –includeusersecurity option effect all sub sites and not just the one sub site being moved from staging to production

Problem with User Control Properties


I've been trying to figure out a problem that I've had for the past week and believe that the issue is something with a user control that I created. In short, the properties for the user control are recognized by intelisense when I register the control and then add it in the markup for a page. However, the values that I set in the markup are ignored by the class as if the properties don't exist.



Parent Page

 <%@ Register Src="../../controls/contactdetail.ascx" TagName="ContactDetail" TagPrefix="tfc" %>

<tfc:ContactDetail runat="server" ID="UserControlContactDetail" Title="Contact-Detail" ContactId="1580" EnableViewState="true" />   



User Control Class

Imports System.Data.SqlClient

Partial Class control_ContactDetail

    Public Property ContactId() As Integer
            Return _ContactId
        End Get
        Set(ByVal value As Integer)
            _ContactId = value
        End Set
    End Property

SQL User Permission (No answer found by searching)

Hello all!   I'm hoping someone will be able to answer my simple question!   Previously, I've run the below script to give one user access to their db in SQL management studio but nothing else. use [someDB] -- use the real db name go sp_changedbowner 'theUser' -- use the new username go 4. Next, deny the new user "public" access to ALL databases: use master go deny VIEW any DATABASE to theUser go   However I now need to add an additional user with view on permissions to the database and can't figure out how to do it. I'm sure it's simple but my SQL knowledge is at a low level.   Many thanks, Lee.

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

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

Problem with user controls and the toolbox

Im building a control library, its just a library that builds to a dll with a bunch of user controls. But So far I can only get "user controls" to be loaded into the toolbox in a separate project. Many on my user controls need only be derived from a specific control and I often find using a user control is unnecessary for the control. So the question is, how can I get a control that is not derived from the user control class, to show in the toolbox, in a separate project? Another thing I would like to decorate my controls with an icon for the toolbox. I tried [ToolboxBitmap("Filename")] at the top of the class but it did not work for me.AbleOpus.ath.cx

User Profile Sync - Profile Picture Export to AD Problem

To start, I think I've read every post/blog/etc there is on this subject.  Currently I have user profile import to Sharepoint 2010 working.  It imports profile data just fine.  Everything in the FIM Synchronization manager show success even.  Its the export from Sharepoint to AD of the user profile picture that isn't working at all.  I've gone thru the steps of adding the thumbnailphoto export under the picture properties.  I can see the export inside of the FIM manager.  I notice though that in FIM there is there a DS_EXPORT of the objects.  I've looked into the SyncDB and noticed in the metaverse table the SPS_MV_OctetString_PictureURL never gets updated with the information from the PictureURL column of the ProfileDB.  It is always Null.  Actually in FIM it only shows one person with an update, and keep showing the PictureURL property as being not applied, which is probably because it is showing it as blank only.  In the connector for the object in FIM, I get the error that I've seen in some blog posts where it says PictureURL (String) is not compatible with SPS_MV_OctetString_PicutreURL (binary), but that seems to be how Sharepoint builds the connection even though FIM finds it invalid.  I've had that created, deleted several times, so I guess that is ordinary, and not sure that is even the problem.

Problem binding business objects to custom user control properties

I have created a user control (supplierPicker) intended to allows a supplier database to be searched and a supplier selected. I want to be able to use this control in a number of other user controls, by binding the suppplierID property of the supplierPicker to a supplierID property in a business object, which is set as the datacontext of the parent user control. When I do this, and there is a supplierID specified in the business ofbject, the binding sets the supplierID in the supplierPicker control and it shows the correct supplier name in the textbox. However when the supplierID DependencyProperty is changed from within the supplierPicker the newly selected supplier name is shown in the TextBox, but the SupplierID does not propogate back to the business object. Other controls on the parent form work fine, so the binding to the business object seems to be ok. Any pointers as to what I'm doing wrong here would be grately appreciated.  This one has been driving me nuts for days! Snipped code for the supplier picker:         public partial class SupplierPicker : UserControl, INotifyPropertyChanged     {         public static DependencyProperty SupplierIDProperty;         public event PropertyChangedEventHandler PropertyChan

User Profile Synchronization Problem


  Here I am, another person with the User Profile problem.  Of course mine is not failing like everyone elses.  Ok here goes.  I followed the following:

So I have installed the WCF from here: http://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/Downloads/DownloadDetails.aspx?DownloadID=23806 as I am running Windows 2008 R2.

I set Replicating Directory Changes to SharePointDBA (Farm Account) and SharePointCAA (Administration Account)

From there I noticed that User Profile Service was started and User Profile Syncronization Service wasn't.  Stopped the User Profile Service and started it again.  Then started the User Profile Sysncronization Service.  Selected User Profile Service Application.  I then waited about 15 minutes.  Checked the services.mmc and noticed that Forefront Identity M

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).

It is very urgent. Thanks in advance.


User Profile Problem


Hi all,

Im having problems implementing user controls for an ASP.NET site i wish to create.

I would like to take you throught the process i took, can anyone please tell me where i went wrong.

First I ran the aspnet_regsql.exe wizard and I provided details to connect to a SQL Express database that i have created. After doing this, I checked the machine.config, and there where no changes made to add the DB as a profile provider. Then I added this to my web.config:

      <add name="Name" type="System.String" />
      <add name="Surname" type="System.String" />

I then ran the web application. From what I've read, this should add a dynamically created class callled ProfileCommon, and the i should be able to access the profile properties like this:

Profile.Name = TextBox1.Text;

For some reason I can never access the properties created in the web.config using Profile.Name... The ProfileCommon class doesnt seem to be dynamically created.

I've tried this using VS 2008 express (.NET 3.5 sp 1) and VS 2010 Express (.NET 4)

Can anyone please tell me what im doing wrong?
