Can´t get the time intelligence filter to work in PerformancePoint Services/Sharepoint

Hi all, I have created a scorecard in Dashboard Designer based on an SSAS cube which looks ok in both DD and Sharepoint. As I want to connect a time filter to this I have created a TI filter in DD. In Sharepoint I have connected the filter to the scorecard with "send performancepoint values to". In "configure connection" I set source value to "PerformancePoint Values: Formula" and Connect to to "Endpoint_TIFormula". I only need to filter on year and have set the TI properties on the cube. Selected time dimension is "Year", Hierarchy level is set to Year, Member is 2008, reference date is 1/1/2008 and I have associated member level Year to Time aggregation Year. The filter is set up like this in DD: it uses the same data source as the scorecard and I use a list view. I do get the filter to work if I specify one formula for each year (e.g. Formula: "Year" and "Display Name: "2010", "Year-1" and "2009" making up two rows) but that can´t be the right way to do it, right? What i would like is a multiselect tree view where I can choose the year I want and have them display on columns. I have tried the formula Year:Year-2 and in the preview I see [Date].[Year].&[2008],[Date].[Year].&[2009],[Date].[Year].&[2008]. However, in Sharepoint the filter only show on

Can URL Rewrite work for Web Services?

I have a WebService and the URL that we use to access it is as follows: https://our.domain.name/ForCertain/myservice.svc/Method1 https://our.domain.name/ForCertain/myservice.svc/Method2 etc. I have tried in vain to remove the myservice.svc node from the url using the URL Rewrite module that I installed in IIS 7, but I can not seem toget it to work.  So my questions are: 1) Does this work for web services at all? 2) If so, where can I find an example? I want to end up with: https://our.domain.name/ForCertain/Method1 https://our.domain.name/ForCertain/Method2 etc. The site name is https://our.domain.name/ForCertain and the individual methods are WebMethods exposed in the service.  myservice.svc is obviously the svc file name in the web site. Any help is appreciated.  Thanks.

SQL Reporting Services 2005 don't work


Hi all,

I've go the next problem.

There is an application which uses SQL 2005 Express Edition + SQL Reporting Services. Both these products are installed together in the same combination for more than hundred times and worked perfectly. Though there is one installation where SSRS was installed but don't work.


1) There are no error messages in the SQL Setup. Both SQL Database Services and SQL Reporting Services realy were installed;

2) IIS contains required virtual directories. ASP.NET is installed and configured properly;

3) SQL Database Services is working fine; required databases exist. Network Service (account which is used for running SSRS service) is a member of required roles in these databases;

4) After installation SSRS service is down. After starting it stops again in a few moments;

5) Windows Application Event Log contains no error messages from SSRS

6) Reporting Services Configuration Manager claims that SSRS were not initialized;

7) In SSRS log there are error message saying

Microsoft.ReportingServices.Diagnostics.Utilities.EventLogSourceNotFound: The event source "

Report Model based on Analysis Services Cube doesn't work


Hi all,

I am working in BIDS and would like to create a Report Model based on a cube.

Creating a Data Source based on SSAS goes well, but when I want to make a Data Source View, the earlier created Data Source doesn't show up, which is necessary for the final resulting Report Model.

Could somebody help me out in solving this issue? (And also tell me why this is issue is rising?)

User Profile Synchronization service is not designed to work on a stand-alone installation


There were tons of discussions and blog posts about User Profile Synch service never starting. And now it appears that this is not even supposed to work....



Cannot get user profile service application to work using the guide on harbar.net?



I'm hoping someone on here can help with this, as I've really been round the houses with this.

Anyway I've attempted to provision the UPS Service App probably 4 times now, each time learning more and more about the common problems.

The last time, I rolled my VM back to just after the installation of SharePoint 2010 binaries, and then ran the PCW and created the farm again from scratch.

I then followed this guide: http://www.harbar.net/articles/sp2010ups.aspx

Everything seemed to work perfectly well, after provisioning UPS I did a couple of iisresets as welll as execadmsvcjobs until I could see the timer job that provisions the FIM services.

These services came up and the following errors were reported in the event log:


The first one is lies, I did start the service and verified it was running, anyway for completeness:

"There are no instances of the User Profile Service started on any server in this farm. Ensure that at least one instance is started on an application server in the farm using the Services on Server page in Central Administration."

This one I have seen constantly on my Farm through various builds:

"An exception occurred when trying to issue security token: An error occurred while receiving t

User profile sync - Replication of manager, physical office location and work phone number back to a


SharePoint 2010 user profile synchronisation successfully up and running following the super guide from Harbar (thank you!).

Setup the property for first name to replicate back into active directory and this has worked perfectly.

Now trying to configure the following functionality and getting issues.

1] Allow the users to edit the manager property and replicate back into AD

2] Allow the users to change their phone number and replicate back to active directory

3] Allow the users to edit the office location using a drop down list.

So these are the problems

1] Allow the users to edit the manager property and replicate back into AD

Have made the property editable and the users can change it.  The org chart browser works using the new values.  The profile property, however, will not allow you to set is as 'user overridable' in central admin and it never goes back into AD.  Indeed there is a warning displayed in the users my site to this effect.

2] Allow the users to change their phone number and replicate back to active directory

Have made the property editable and the users can change it.  The profile property, however, will not allow you to set is as 'user overridable' in central admin and it never goes back into AD.  Indeed there is a warning displayed in the users my site to t

You have any problems with the FIM services and profile sync?


Hi all

I am using the SP 2010 RTM, with one WFE and one SQL - server.

I have managed to import profiles from a forest's OU, and my site is created for the profiles, but still I keep getting some errors. I have googled a lot, and found that many of those errors were bugs in the SP 2010 beta.

I keep getting this warning

Event ID 1004

Failed to read Mysite(hosted on port: 80) profile properties using Work flow



I developed a sequential work flow to read My site profile properties. Which is working fine in development and test servers but not in production server.

My development and test server have my sites hosted on port number other than port 80. I am having no issues here working my code. I just pass my site URL to SPSite object...

SPSite site = new SPSite("http://developmentserver:5252/");

SPSite site = new SPSite("http://testserver:2383/");

Coming to the production server, I have my sites hosted on port 80. I change my sites URL to

SPSite site = new SPSite("http://mysites");

My work flow runs with out any error but it is not doing as it suppose to do. Think, it is not reading any profile properties. I am unable to debug the code as production server is 64 bit computer. I even changed my sites URL with complete domain name qualifying.

PSite site = new SPSite("http://mysites.domain.com");

Please help me to resolve this. I really appreciate your help!






can't start User Profile syncronization Service or FIM services


Using 2k8 R2, SQL 2k8 SP1 CU5 and Sharepoint 2010 RC. Standalone install with DC on separate server

Install to vanilla AD - can't do anything until I can get this service running and I can't run it because when I try to start it and I get a screen that lists the Service app - fine - but the service account is greyed out and listing NTAuthority\NetworkService - it demands a password but of course I can't priovide one. Can't select a different Service account because it's all greyed out - even if I create a new managed account and add that as an Admin to the Service Application

FIM services both won't start either -

Out of box install and nothing works - hardly bodes well

Anyway - seen lots of posts on problems with starting this service - anyone found a solution?





Code Optimized Web Development Profile (VS 2010 and .NET 4.0 Series)

When you first run VS 2010 it prompts you to select an IDE profile to use. The profile you select will configure how tool windows are displayed/docked in the IDE by default and set the default keyboard shortcuts. You can then customize any of these settings by using the Tools->Options menu within the IDE and then override/change them. You can also later reset your profile and pick a different one by choosing the Tools->Import and Export Settings menu command.

Installing and Uninstalling Services

Installing and Uninstalling Services.Unlike most projects you create in Visual Studio .NET, Windows Service projects cannot be run directly from the development environment by pressing F5. This is because the service in the project must be installed before the project can run.

You can quickly install your service application by using a command line utility called InstallUtil.exe.

Getting Started with Windows SharePoint Services

Of all of the capabilities of SharePoint, I thought I would start with the most basic installation - as a corporate intranet. It is likely that we will need to discuss some of the elements of SharePoint as we go along, so this also gives us the opportunity to review these elements for future reference.

Before going into too much detail, I would like to point out that you can try the core SharePoint framework (known as Windows SharePoint Services or WSS) for free. On Microsoft's Web site you can download a trial version of Virtual PC 2004 (VPC). Using VPC, you can install the Windows 2003 Evaluation Kit and the WSS add-on. This combination will give you 45 days to evaluate the setup.

Building a Searchable Phone Directory with Windows SharePoint Services

I want to continue to build out the intranet site we've started in our previous articles. A standard item in every intranet is a staff/employee list. Most companies implementing Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) are large enough to have a database that contains all employees. We will use the aggregation features of SharePoint to include data from this database into our intranet.
