MySite user profile site creation of My Content page is created as provisioned failed (unprovisioned

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 15, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I've been trying to troubleshoot our User Profile Sync and have noticed the profile pages weren't getting updated with everything.  Most content was but things like memberships and the content tabs weren't.  I also saw this error in ULS: ProfSynch: Exception attempting to enumerate site 25a72070-4249-4698-ae99-c2a45d25b08e for ContentDB 23a6e3ef-6d56-4bde-825e-95c6924e2f91: Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.ProfileSynchronizationInternalException: ProfSynch: The site with ID 25a72070-4249-4698-ae99-c2a45d25b08e cannot be synchronized due to an unprovisioned root web.      at Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.SiteSynchronizerCollection.GetSynchInfoForSite(SqlDataReader dr, SynchInfo info)      at Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.SiteSynchronizerCollection.<get_Elements>d__0.MoveNext() I checked in the MySite database under the webs table and noticed all the My Content sites for all of our users had the flag column with the number 1315 in them - (meaning unprovisioned as the error above states).  Cross checking with the User Sync Profile database under the SiteSynch table I noticed all of the sites have NULL for the value under both the LastSynch and ChangeToken columns (The User Profile Service Application - User Profile to SharePoint Full Synchronization  timer job takes care of populating that).&

Customize the User Profile page

I need to add a "link" or "button" to the User Profile page (userdisp.aspx).  In SP2007, I had a custom feature that would forward the user to a custom aspx page, but that doesn't appear to work in 2010.  Is there a recommended method of customizing the User Profile page in 2010?

How to Create a Curriculum Vitae For every user on there profile page?

Hi, I have to create a Curriculum Vitae on everyones users profile page so they can fill it in and afterwards we can do searches on it to see the experience of our people. This has to be done in a webpart. All ideas are welcome... i have no idea how i need to start on this.. i was thinking of making a list and saving all data of everyuser in the list (but if i put a webpart on the profile page i guess i will only have 1 list for all users or not?). Or maybe creating a wiki with all the userprofiles and then a webpart that query's the wiki.. but will the search work then?   What would be the best sollution?  I'm working with sharepoint 2010 Enterprise Thanks a lot!!!   TIM

Master page is reset to v4.master when new site is created.

Hi, I have a site definition which specifies my custom master pages like this: <Project... <Configurations> <Configuration ID="0" Name="Innovations" CustomMasterUrl="_catalogs/masterpage/Innovations.master" MasterUrl="_catalogs/masterpage/Innovations.master"> ... I have a site collection http://myserver/projects and a sub-site TestSite at http://myserver/projects/testsite based on that definition above. I save TestSite as a site template and then create a new site Test2 at http://myserver/projects/test2 from the saved template. All seems to be ok but new site master page is v4.master and not Innovations.master. What's wrong here? Of course I can manually change it to Innovation.master but isn't it supposed to be done automatically upon site creation?

MySite creation fail - There has been an error creating the personal site. Contact your site adminis



I have a MOSS 2007 installation patched up to Cumulative Patch December, but are experiencing some issues with MySite.

When users access MySite, they recieve this errormessage in their browser: There has been an error creating the personal site. Contact your site administrator for more information.

This is followed up with this logged event on the server:


My Site creation failure for user 'DOMAIN\username' for site url 'https://mysite.domain.com/personal/domain_user'. The exception was: Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.PersonalSiteCreateException: A failure was encountered while attempting to create the site. ---> Microsoft.SharePoint.SPException: User cannot be found .

User Profile Property creation


I have inadvertently deleted the user profile property SPS-PhoneticDisplayName which means that users now get an error when trying to view their profile as the page tries to use this field. With cutom errors turned off in the web config file the message states  that the property must be created by an administrator using the profile administration tool.

When I try to re-create the property I get the following error Invalid Property name. Please enter a property name that matches the specification of URI schema name (RFC2396), which must begin with a letter, and must contain only letters, digits, and the characters ".", "+", or "-".

The property name appears to meet these requirements but it still fails. (if I remove the '-' from the name the property is created)

anyone know how I can recover the SPS-PhoneticDisplayName property?

Duplicate Fields during list creation from content types and site columns


I am trying to create a List in Sharepoint 2010 using Site Columns and Content Types. It results in creating duplicate fields in the list for the Site Columns used. Here is the details description of what I was doing.

I have created two site columns 


<Field Type="Number" DisplayName="Start Coordinate" Required="TRUE" EnforceUniqueValues="FALSE" Indexed="FALSE"
Group="QMS" ID="{A3F2D108-11B5-4B49-9633-338D27227E12}"
Name="StartCoordinate" Overwrite="TRUE" />

<Field Type="Number" DisplayName="End Coordinate" Required="TRUE" EnforceUniqueValues="FALSE" Indexed="FALSE"
Group="QMS" ID="{06B927BB-C354-4A0A-AE88-9C14E55EAB27}"

Then added these to a new content type I

How to retrieve a user profile for any site member



I am new to asp.net's membership controls. I am trying to figure out how to make a public profile page that will display information about a site member to other users. I thought I would be able to use the profile class and just pass in a parameter such as user name. But I tried:


Profile.GetProfile("username") 'Where username = name of profile I want to retrieve




However, if the user is logged in this codee just brings back their details, not those of the username requested. What am I doing wrong?

Move page in Site Content and Structure alters revision history and makes old content available


This sounds bizzare, I tried it on an OOTB publishing site.

I have a page X in site A. Page X has version 1.0 and 2.0 approved and published, no minor versions anywhere. I choose to move page X to site B. Page X now has revision history version 1.0 (published and available) and version 1.1, which is exactly the same as version 2.0 but no longer visible to the outside world.

So the first problem is that moving a page makes a previously published and overwritten version of the page content available again. If I publish the page it goes to version 2.0, but I have to remember to do this. Also because I approve the page, my user id is associated with the publication of the content (which is sorta ok) but the original author of version 2.0 has now presumably been lost to the ether ... or the green swirling icon of death.

But I don't publish page X because I think "oops I meant to move page Y" and move it back to site A, without first publishing version 1.1. Now I have version 0.1 and 0.2. 0.1 matches the original version 1.0, and version 0.2 matches the original version 2.0, however the best bit is that the timestamps are such that version 0.1 is now checked in after version 0.2.

I then publish the page, I now have version 0.1 and 1.0, where 0.1 matches the original version

How to Authenticate User on External Site Using IFrame (Dynamically created in SharePoint WebPart)



I've a situation,

- External Site : This site has its own user store (user/password) to log-in to.

- SharePoint WebPart : This webpart will get some readonly data from External Site but for performing any CURD operation on the External Site the user has to Log-in to External Site using IFrame Mechanism (This login form has to be of External site, and UserName/Passwordd should be posted to login-form of External site) sharepoint shouldn't be collecting any user/password credentials. (how can we do this?)

How user gets authenticated in External Site:

1. user Provides username/password.

2. Once authenticated to User Store it set an Authentication Cookie in use browser, thus uses this cookie with every request to perform any CURD operation.

I've to have the similar functionality in SharePoint Webpart. using IFRAME.

Hope i covered all the points in my explaination, if you can provide any blog/code which is dealing with similar kind of approach.
