Problem with Sharepoint 2010 - Claims Auth - Windows Auth and FBA. consistent redirects back to "cho

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 24, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

We have sharepoint 2010 foundation site that we can successfully login with via IE, Firefox, Chrome both on the domain and externally with Claims Authentication with only Windows Auth type selected (NTLM).

Once we add FBA and use the default signin page, we can still login (we select Windows Auth from the dropdown) BUT it only works on the domain. When we try to access externally, the only browser that works is FireFox. Both Chrome and IE just constantly redirect back to the Choose Authentication dropdown screen.

We have tried for the last 2 days to sort this out. Has anyone else experience this? It looks like the default sign in page somehow doesn't set the cookie for IE and Chrome and just bounces us back to the sign in page...

Thanks for any info...

To clarify, we are not even using the FBA yet. We are trying to login only with the windows auth and domain accounts...

SharePoint 2010 Claims Based Authentication - anonymous site is prompting for CBA auth when opening

Hi, I have CBA setup successfully on my sites.  One site is setup for anonymous access and I have disabled "client integration" on that web application. I have a list of MS Office documents on a wiki.  When I click on one I am asked to either save or open or cancel.  Saving works fine but when I choose open, it launches the associated MS Office app.  I am then prompted for a login from CBA.  I can click cancel and the logon screen appears again.  After clicking cancel the 2nd time the document appears in the MS Office app, Word in this case. My question is how do I prevent my users from being prompted for a CBA login when clicking on these files and opening them in the native app on their machine?      --TR

How to upgrade from Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 to SharePoint Foundation 2010 after mistanely de


I need a detailed instruction on how to upgrade From Upgrading from Windows SharePoint Services 2.0  (SBS 2003 ) to SharePoint Foundation 2010.

Background of the case:

I have all my databases (STS-database and STS_Config) saved but, I forgot to save my Virtual Site )Companyweb site) and I mistakenly re-installed IIS on the SBS 2003, hence  I lost the companyweb site. Is this an issue to migrate to Sharepoint foundation 2010. The Sharepoint foundation 2010 is running on a Microsoft HyperV Server 2008 R2
Also, I have created a Virtual 2003 SRV ENT with Sharepoint Services 3.0 running on it. I also have attached my Databases STS_Database and STS_Config)... how do I get it working like a regular website. I have modified the CNAME record to reflect the new server... http://companyweb - it take me to the new site but it loads a blank page. I did create a new CompanyWeb Virtual site on the VHD 2003 server.
Your help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your prompt response. Nelson

Sharepoint 2003 + Windows Terminal Server 2008 + Office 2007 problem?

Hi, We have a customer where some users runs Windows Terminal Server 2008 with Office 2007. They open documents from a Sharepoint 2003 site. When they open an excel sheet they get a button in the document which says "Server workbook: Click edit workbook to edit this workbook" and there is a button: "edit workbook" The users clicks "edit workbook" but get an error message saying there is no connection to the server.  They are able to edit the document, but not save it back to the sharepoint site. Most other users work on their local computer with Office 2003. Here, everything works fine and there are no button/message stating its a server workbook.   Is this caused due to some compatability issues between Sharepoint 2003 and Office 2007?   Best regards, Thomas Hansen ErgoGroup AS

problem rename sharepoint 2010 search service application admin database

Hi all, i have a problem that hopefully someone has an answer to.  i am not too familiar with sharepoint so please excuse my ignorance. we have sharepoint 2010 on a windows 2008r2 server.  everything seems to work fine.  but as you know, the default database names are horrendous.  i have managed to rename all of them, except for the "search service application" admin database. the default is: Search_Service_Application_DB_<guid> the other 2 databases (crawl and property) were renamed without a problem. we are following the article from technet on how to rename the search service admin db (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-nz/library/ff851878%28en-us%29.aspx).  it says to enter the following command: $searchapp | Set-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication -DatabaseName "new database name" -DatabaseServer "dbserver" however, i get an error about identity being null.  no big deal, i add the -Identity switch and the name of my search service application.  but the real problem comes the error it throws:   Set-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication : The requested database move was aborted as the associated search application is not paused. At line:1 char:54 + $searchapp | Set-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication <<<<  -Identity "Search Service Application" -DatabaseName "ShareP

Windows 7 Sharepoint 2010 Foundation

Hello again, we installed Sharepoint 2010 Foundation on a Windows 7 Professional OS 8GB 4Core machine and when we try to use a trial Version of Visual Studio 2010 we are getting "A 32 bit version of version of Windows Sharepoint Services is required by this project but is not installed on this system. Please install Windows Sharepoint Services 3.0, please download from MS or as part of MS Sharepoint Server 2007" I'm wondering if anyone might know if there is a key step we forgot to do or if this might be a Visual Studio 2010 setting per chance? Thanks very much again BobK

I've created a web service datasource on a 2010 site using SharePoint Designer.
