Alerts - 1 user fails with "PermissionMask check failed. asking for 0x00000055, have 0x3C4312EF", ot

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 16, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I have set Alerts for 3 users on a Document Library in our Team Site in a MOSS 2007 environment.  Alerts go out for every other person I set alerts for, with the exception of this person.  Our Exchange Admin tracked down the Alert email and saw that while everyone else was listed, this person was not.  At the same time I turned on Verbose logging for the log files and found the PermissionMask failure.  The problem is I cannot figure out why this person is failing this check. This person happens to be a member of our IT team, as are the other people I added Alerts for.  I should also note that this problem occurs whether I add the alert for this person, or this person adds the alert themselves.  I have checked the permissions on the Library and they are inherited from the Site level.  When I check the permissions on the Site level, the IT team has Contribute permissions, I did then check the AD Security Group to be sure that this person is in the group, and they are. Any ideas as to why this would happen for this person only?  This person can access, and add content, to the Library which puzzles me more.  My next test will be to add this permission to the Site permissions explicity with Full Control to see if that matters. In Googling for this, I find a number of PermissionMask posts, but none that seem to address this specific pro

User Alerts don't work


Hi there

our webmaster added a group and a few users on a page via Actions -> Alert Me -> Send Alerts To
the users are also viewable via Site Actions -> Site Settings -> User alerts
all neccessary users or groups are added for alerting.

even if everything looks okay, on just one site the alerting does not work when a user uploads a new document.

question: does anybody have any clue what i could test or do to correct this?

as i told, the same users work on another site, so it's not possible, that users or groups are not mail enabled.

thanks for any help.

Crawler fails to register date properties of user profiles with the month of January, April, August


This seems to be a bug when the crawler search the user profiles in MOSS 2007.  When crawled, user profiles with a SPS-HireDate in the months of January, April, August and December will be detected, but a full-text (SQL) search returns those profiles without the HireDate field.

User profiles with HireDates in other months work correctly, returning the HireDate in the search.  And changing the month of a problematic user profile also fixes the problem.

This problem is also reflected in the fact that while we have 499 user profiles using the SPS-HireDate property,  the managed property page from the search section only has 350 items with the HireDate property.

We're running MOSS 2007 32bit with SP2 with an English language base and the Spanish language pack. I'd considered date format problems, but I can't imagine how some months would work, while others wouldn't.

Any ideas?

PassThrough authentication fails: Login failed for user 'NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE'

I've tried it with every AuthenticationMode! But no one seems to work correctly in my case. I thought that PassThrough should work with a preset User ID and password. This would be enough for the moment, but even this doesn't work!! With WindowsCredentials I get the following error: The Property with name 'SsoApplicationId' is missing on the LobSystemInstance. SsoApplicationId I tried to set this with the SharePoint SSO but I've no such services. How can I set this just for the current WindowsCredentials (of the current Sharepoint user)? With RevertToSelf I get the following error: "An error occurred while retrieving data from MyLOBInstance. Administrators, see the server log for more information." The server log contained no useful information for me. With PassTrough I get the following error: "Login failed for user 'NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE'. [CLIENT: <local machine>]" Why are the lines <Property Name="RdbConnection User ID" Type="System.String">MyDomain\Administrator</Property><Property Name="RdbConnection Password" Type="System.String">mYpAssWoRd</Property> being ignored?

User Alerts

Is it possible for a site administrator to actually create users alerts for site libraries and lists. In other words to ensure that all users have alerts for certain lists regardless of whether they cretae the or not?

MOSS 2007 to SharePoint 2010 Upgrade Fails - Exception: The user or group 'wsaarole:wsaa administra


Ok the top part of the error I have tracked down to some entries in the SharePoint_Config database (Classes, Objects, TimerRunningJobs) and since I have a VM I am going to study them and try deleting them probably, if it dies I will delete this VM and roll up another VM in my case its a timer job that I am guessing the farm can live without.

The other error further down is more of a concern to me which is the one I listed above. The Group exists and it is in the farm and appears to be healthy no errors in preugrade check or the like or in the Farm. When upgrading the show stopper for me is that the content databases will not upgrade (assuming they upgrade FBA I can configure) the chicken and egg issue for me is this is an FBA farm, so is it the case that b/c FBA is missing not configured yet on the other side of the upgrade in 2010 that these content dbs connected to FBA (by FBA users in the content dbs) will upgrade affter FBA is configured ( I haven't tried this yet sorting my error log one error at a time). The Particular content dbs with an issue are shared services and the main site collection db which includes my sites site collections also.

Starting User Profile Synchronization Service Fails


Hi All,

While performing a database attach upgrade from SharePoint Server 2007 to 2010 with this article http://technet.microsoft.com/nl-nl/library/cc263299(en-us).aspx as my guide, I'm stuck at the 'Start the User Profile Synchronisation Service' section. When I use Central Administration to start the service, after a few minutes being on the status 'Starting' it reverts back to 'Stopped'.

When reviewing the logs I find the following error message:

UserProfileApplication.SynchronizeMIIS: Failed to configure ILM, will attempt during next rerun. Exception: System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: Specified collection 'StringSchemaCollection' cannot be dropped because it is used by object '<DOMAIN>\<FARM ACCOUNT>.GetObjectCurrent'. 

The account used is already added to the local administrators group.

One solution I did find is in the following thread: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepoint2010setup/thread/58a404c0-af55-476c-84ad-8720de0a3292. The problem I have with this solution is that I should manually modify the user profile database, setting the correct default schem

Disable or modify user alerts


Question from my staff was how can we limit an internal site from sending out alerts for all changes made from a site.  We only want to give users on certain sites the ability to view their own alerts when they post under their name and not view when others post to the site?  Reason being we are limiting users to view only what we want them to view and not all views are for everyone.  That is why we created certain pages to allow users access to see what is available for them or their group.  As it turns out if we limit them to this and they setup an alert to view all changes they bypass our security restrictions to view only what we want them to view.  They need to be able to contribute to the site and we don't want to create two sites for the same purpose.  That would just make matters worse so its best to keep all users adding to a single task database then having two of them use the same functionality.  There are other reason we don't want to create other sites as well but I just wanted to see if anyone out there has used been able to find out if alerts are manageable from the administrator point of view.

I know I can view all alerts for the site and remove those that user create but that defeats the purspose of having them set up alerts on their own.  We just want to disable the feature that any changes on the list ar

Problem with end user not being able to create alerts

I created a team site as a sub site off our main site. I broke inheritance from the parent and added a new group and assigned that group a custom permission that has create alerts permission. Problem is when the end user goes to create alerts it throws an access denied error after clicking okay on the new alert page. I've checked and rechecked permissions and everything looks to be setup correctly?

Creating Alerts on Behalf of another User


Hi all,

Was wondering if i create an alert for multiple users at the same time and select to only send alert when "Someone else changes an event created by me", is sharepoint smart enough to know who to route alert to?

For example, I create an alert all at once for john, joe, sal and mike and select to only "send when someone else changes an event created by me." If Sal created an item and it was changed by Mike, will SharePoint know to send the alert only to Sal?

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated!


Programmatically adding user profile properties fails when adding a multivalued property


I have written a console application that adds a custom section to the User Profile Properties and then adds properties under that section. The code works fine when adding CoreProperties of type string (Single Value) and mapping each property to an Active Directory field. However the code always fails when mapping a string (Multi Value) property to an AD property. I have researched the errors I present below but cannot see what the solution might be.


    private static void AddCustomProperties(string strUrl)
      Console.WriteLine("Adding custom properties under section '" + DisplayName + "'.......");
      using (SPSite siteColl = new SPSite(strUrl))

        SPServiceContext serviceContext = SPServiceContext.GetContext(siteColl);
        UserProfileConfigManager upcm = new UserProfileConfigManager(serviceContext);
        CorePropertyManager cpm = upcm.ProfilePropertyManager.GetCoreProperties();
        ProfilePropertyManager ppm = up

Creating an Email Alerts to Task Assigned user to edit the task from Email


When we use the out of the box wf in sharepoint lets say Document approval then it sends an email to the assigned user where user can edit the task with in email, they don't have to come back to Sharepoint to edit the task.

I am looking for a way so that i can send email to the user with the controls in the custom task forms. So that they can just Complete the task from email. they dont have to come back to sharepoint task list to edit and complete the task.

Is there any workaround for this.

Linked server fails -Login failed for user 'NT AUTHORITY\ANONYMOUS LOGON'. with SQL2008R2


Hi, Kerberos seems to be malfunctioning with SQL2008R2.


I have a new dev SQL2008R2 server called BDSDEV2 and an upgraded(in-place) SQL2008R2 server BDSTEST2.

From BDSDEV2 , I can successfully issue a linked server query to BDSTEST2

select * from bdstest2.eis_prod.dbo.wcs_agent


But from my client in SSMS, connected to BDSDEV2  , the double hop is failing to BDSTEST2 for same query 

Login failed for user 'NT AUTHORITY\ANONYMOUS LOGON'.


I have another BDSDEV1 server, which is SQL2008 and there double hop IS WORKING

From my client in SSMS, connected to BDSDEV1  ,I can successfully issue the query to BDSTEST2 .


The service accounts  for MSSQLSERVER are both local admins on their servers and sa's

I have confirmed SPN is OK 

This is from BDSDEV2 - sql2008r2 server.

Sharepoint 2007 - Update Alerts Going To Random User


Hi, I am new to this forum am relativly new to sharepoint. I have set up a Task page and enabled alerts for assigned to. This is working correctly and only the user the task is assigned to gets the initail email. However when anyone updates the task the email goes to a number of users not just the assigned uers. There are no workflows setup. The below notification should only have gone to the user without the line through there name. Is there anyway to change this?

Thank you
