remove inactive sharepoint users

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

There are users granted to access SharePoint site by adding them to SharePoint Site Collection groups individually in the past. 

Now some of them are no longer with the company and removed from corporate Active Directory. But those users are still showing in SharePoint site.

Anyway to clean up those users from SharePoint site?

Thanks in advance,

Enabling Users to Maintain SharePoint Content

When SharePoint is installed as a corporate intranet, there is a considerable amount of effort involved in maintaining the content to keep the site relevant. As we discussed in the first few parts of this series, SharePoint has many built-in features to reduce the burden on the site administrator.

Some areas of the site usually contain less-dynamic information. Internal memos and corporate policies are common examples of this information. One option for this information is to post these documents in a document library. Documents in a library are often stored in a few different formats: Word, Acrobat (PDF), or HTML. Each of these formats has its drawbacks.

How to remove a saved password from a users computer


Hi, I have an asp.net website that requires users to login using their Active Directory credentials. All users of the website have AD accounts. Some of the users are at remote locations and share a common computer login (I know this is not recommended but it is what it is, I have no say in that). Every so often a user will log into my website and click the Remember Passwod box which causes the next person that comes along to not be prompted to log in. All users are on IE 7.  I have tried having them go into tools and deleting the cookies, saved passwords, etc but when they go to my website they are still not being prompted to log in. I have recently migrated to IIS 7 and I understand there is a way to have the user enter the site through a custom form but I have not gotten that far yet. How can I make sure the users password is removed from IE? Thanks for any help.  

Map Asp.net website Roles and Users to Sharepoint website roles and users

Hi I have created an asp.net website with SQL Server based form authentication and authorization. Now, we are moving this pure asp.net website to Sharepoint 2010 website. I have developed 5 webparts for my asp.net website to migrate to Sharepoint. All these webparts are avilable for access in the same page. Now I need to implement authentication and authorization for access to these webparts in Sharepoint. I am newbie to sharepoint. Can someone provide me how can I provide authorization and authentication in Sharepoint, which should use the current SQL Server based form authentication and authorization(roles and users of my existing asp.net website) and how can I map roles and users of my existing asp.net website to Sharepoint. Please reply ASAP. Thanks & Regards Mahendra Babu

Incorrect number of users reported in SharePoint Usage Logs

* See last post - issue appears related to KB 969231 *   It seems SharePoint 2007 usage logging with anonymous access worked in IIS6 but not IIS7. Is there a way to fix it?   Background: The SharePoint Usage logging was working fine (approximately 20,000 hits per day) until the upgrade to a new IIS7 environment. The configuration in both environments is very similar (both Anonymous Access and Windows Authentication are enabled) however the new environment is only showing 600 hits per day.   This forum response from Cornelius J. van Dyk [MVP] suggests that Usage analysis/logging with Anonymous Access doesn't work, however it does work in our old IIS6 environment (a dash "-" is just shown in the usage logs which suggests an anonymous user): http://www.eggheadcafe.com/software/aspnet/29823445/sharepoint-doubt-is-there-any-way-to-find-out-how-many-users-have-logged-in-to-the-sharepoint-site.aspx   So I've concluded it's differences in IIS6/IIS7 authentication. Reading articles on the differences (e.g.  single auth pipline instead of two-stage) doesn't highlight any obvious reasons why this wouldn't work.   Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks,   Peter

Excel Web Part - different Powerpivot Slicer disabled tue to sharepoint users

Hello, first of all i'm new to sharepoint. I found quite similar question to mine http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepoint2010general/thread/9f23a77c-1527-48a8-abbc-2ccded736d9e but unfortunately it hasn't been answered. So what i have done so far: I made a Excel 2010 Powerpivot chart and Published it to sharepoint via the Powerpivot gallery. I also created a Excel web part with the spreadsheed in it. I am searching for a vba script to achieve the sharepoint username but found only some for the windows username. I also managed to disable slicers in vba. What i want to achieve: Due to the fact that the Powerpivot chart has some critical security data in it the different users should only see two different filter options (whole data and one slice for themself) So i need to disable slicers in the pivot chart tue to the sharepoint accounts. My Qestion: Is it possible? If yes, how! Any help would be appreciated. Is it possible via VBA or do i have to use Excel web scervices?  Thanks for your help :)

Allowing internal users access to Sharepoint site externally

Good afternoon.   This may be a simple answer (I hope so actually) but I haven't been able to figure this out. What I need: I have internal users who can access my Sharepoint site easily while logged onto my network, and external users who I have added to our Active Directory system who can access the site using our external URL.  Both work fine. What I am having problems with:  One of my users (internal) is on a different AD (he is on our European network) and he can not access the site either from the VPN (when he is in the US) nor from the external site (it will take him to the logon screen, but since he doesn't have an account on our AD, it won't let him in). I understood from our European IS department that all we had to do was give him both internal and external access to the Sharepoint site, and he would be able to connect from anywhere. So, how do I do that (give him both)?  Do I need to have our IS team turn on MOSS2007 to do this (it is not turned on today). Many thanks, I am still a newb at Sharepoint, but trying to learn quickly. Thanks, Jim  

SharePoint Search Server 2010 Express returns no search results for non-admin users

This is going to sound crazy, but anyway... bare with me... I have a SharePoint Search Server 2010 Express (RTM) installed with a crawl account (call it sharepoint_crawl) which has full read permission to an entire site collection of 100,000 documents. I have logged in with this account to make sure it has read access to everything, and it does. I run a full crawl of all documents and allow it to finish. If I try and search the content for an extremely common term (i.e. 50,000+ hits) I get no results. However, if I log in with a site collection admin I do get search results. There are no indexing errors or query errors in either log files or event log. Everything looks like it is working correctly - just no results for non-admins Anyone tripped on this? I have recreated the crawl account and perform a full re-index with the same results. What gets me is that the crawl account does have read permission to the content it is indexing, the content is indexed correctly, but the crawl account cannot get results back. It is as if security-trimming is removing everything. Any ideas?

How to remove conflict between Sharepoint 2010 Post Cache Substitution and Response.Filter

Under SharePoint 2007 (Win Server 2008, SQL 2008) we made use of Response.Filter to meet certain requirements for accessibility to remove certain markup or add to markup that was missing attributes, etc. When we upgraded to SharePoint 2010 we get the following error message from the pages, unless we remove the use of Response.Filter: "Post cache substitution is not compatible with modules in the IIS integrated pipeline that modify the response buffers.  Either a native module in the pipeline has modified an HTTP_DATA_CHUNK structure associated with a managed post cache substitution callback, or a managed filter has modified the response." I have found several posts including this article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2014472 that explains that it is definately a problem, but no one has an alternative solution to using the Response.Filter, and the article doesn't say how to disable the use of Post Cache Substitution. So, my question is how do I turn off the use of Post Cache Substitution in SharePoint 2010, or how can I alter the final markup of the page "After" the substitution happens?  Or, if it is a control or three that are using Post Cache Substitution, which one(s) so that I can remove them.

Setup Users to change domain passwords via sharepoint

Here is what we did so far: 1. created an OU in AD and delegated full control to Sp service account 2. Configured incoming email settings 3. on sp site created a new group with full control permission 4. created an email distribution group for this group with an email address 5. in CA approved the distribution group to be created in OU 6. In Ad we can check the OU is there with the specified email address 7. added users to the group, but when we send an email to the group email address it does not forward to the group members.
