Logon to SharePoint 2010 requires \. Why?

We've installed a fairly large number of small SharePoint 2007 environments. All of these have had their own Active Directory, specified to <domainname>.local. These have been accessible from Internet, and have simply had a external DNS pointingwww.<domain>.com to the server.  In these SharePoint 2007 environments we've used Windows Authentication, and logging on has simply been a procedure of specifying username and password. It has worked just fine. However, in our first SharePoint 2010 environment, we're encountering odd problems. We use here NTLM authentication, and  domain name is <domain>.local. The domain name used in Internet iswww.<domain>.com, which points to the SharePoint 2010 environments frontend server. We'd like to login to the SharePoint environment with simple <username> and password, but it fails. We have to explicitely specify <domain>\<username> and then password to login. Why doesn't this work, and is there any relatively easy way to fix this without disturbing the environment? From logon attempts using simply username, these events appear in the Security event log: Log Name: Security Source: Microsoft-Windows-Security-Auditing Date: 7.5.2010 13:15:01 Event ID: 4625 Task Category: Logon Level: Information Keywords: Audit Failure User: N/A Computer: <COMPUTER>.<

Unablke to logon on Sharepoint 2007 front-end with remote IE8 client


We are having problems to logon on the sharepoint front-end server from a client pc, within the same network. The Sharepoint 2007 servers are running on WIndows 2008 Datacenter (2 Front ends, 1 index, 1 SQL database 2008 server).

When we try to logon the server creates an event with id 4625, status: 6d, sub-status: 6a. When we use the same account from IE 8.0 on one of the servers within the farm, then it works.

The same configuration is installed within another environment where evereything works.

Is there somebody that solved this issue??

IIS - sharepoint/default website port number confusion



I have MOSS 2007 installed with IIS V7.

My default web site port is 80. When I created a new web application for my main sharepoint portal I also set it to 80. So obviously now the default web site port shows as stopped in IIS and it won't start.

What are the best practices. Should I change the port number for my portal to something else? I mean is it even a good idea to have sharepoint on port 80? If so, how do I go about changing the port number for my portal site?

any help appreciated.

Moving SharePoint 2007 from Domain to a Workgroup


For development purposes, we have SharePoint 2007 installed on a virtual server (Wind 2003) on a company desktop (Vista Business ed.).  The SharePoint is using Active Directory and company domain. For learning purposes, we want to copy the virtual machine on another Vista machine that is outside the domain and is not using AD:

Question 1 : How can we move the SharePoint from a domain to a Workgroup
Question 2: Is it possible to still be able to use emails (through local installation of Outlook) on the same computer that is not on the domain? If, yes, what are the possibilities (any articles on it? Etc.)?

Display Full Name in SharePoint instead of Domain\Username

This in all pages of the sites (persmission settings, document libraries, tasks, etc.) Does anybody knows how to force SharePoint to display users with the "full name" standard? Thank you.Plo

Problem Saving Files to A Sharepoint 2010 Site from Office 2010: Saves locally by default rather tha

Hi we are starting to use sharepoint 2010 / word 2010 and have found an interesting bug/problem. Sometimes when a user tries to save a file (by clicking on the save button in the quick access toolbar for word 2010) the save dialog comes up with the users local "Documents" folder as the path (not the correct sharepoint path where the document should be saved).  (I should say that we are creating the file from sharepoint by using a toolbar on the document library, with the new button)  We are using a content type and a template attached to the document library when we create the file.  This is really annoying because the user might not notice that the document is saving locally and not to sharepoint.  I have found a strange workaround which involves clicking the [File] tab on the ribbon in word 2010, then clicking "Save and Send" and then clicking the save button again.  At this point word 2010 seems to "remember" that it is trying to save document to sharepoint and shows the sharepoint document library. This is a real nuisance which could lead to documents being lost/misfiled if people don't realize that this is happening.  Can anyone help me? Thanks Kevin krd

Can't view the SharePoint Site. Explorer won't take domain account

Hi, I'm having issues viewing the SharePoint 2010 Site that I have deployed from any workstation. It seems that my permissions settings have broken - even though I haven't touched them. Whenever http://start/ is visited (the Intranet top site) it asks for credentials. They should have been taken from the User that was logged onto the machine. E.g. NATWIDE\UserA. After entering the credentials, it doesn't accept them, and asks for them again. And again. And then blank page. I'm not receiving the SharePoint "restricted access" page... HOWEVER, when I log into the website via Mozilla Firefox - it appears that the credentials are fine, and it works according to the permissions set for the site from within SharePoint. Does anyone have any idea why this would be happening. I'm completely stumped and I can't find a similar issue anywhere else. I have installed a Stand-alone installation of SharePoint 2010 Server Enterprise on Server 2008. The account that installed the SharePoint server and is a FARM Administrator, can't even log in to view the page. Cheers, Stu.

modify/override properties of default sharepoint modal dialogs (ex. editview.aspx) using javascript
