anonymous users vs intranet users in sharepoint 2010 internet facing sites

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 05, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint



We have sharepoint 2010 internet facing sites where inside custom master page we have security trimmed control which hides site actions for general users.

Now we have anonymous access enabled. So any body can access this site.

Now even if user is author or from intranet , he can not see site actions as we do not have any sign in link.

How to automatically show site actions to users from intranet and with proper rights and hide siteactions to anonymous users?

NT Authority / Authenticated Users not seeing any sites in SharePoint 2010

I have a SharePoint 2010 publishing portal with multiple publishing sites under it. The requirement is to have NT Authority / Authenticated Users to login and view all home page and other sites.  This is working for team sites, when we just add them to the visitors group but not for publishing portal template. I also tried adding this to the Style Resource Group apart from visitors. Anyone help?

Can Sharepoint 2010 be accessed by internal users via the Internet (i.e. like a portal)



I am trying to figure out the best way to make a Sharepoint 2010 site available to company employees (i.e. with AD credentials), via the Internet. I am not interested in the kind of internet-facing use of Sharepoint that many seem to be asking about, where it is for a public site accessible to the general public or anonymous users.

Rather, this would be more like the Remote Web Workplace feature found in Small Business Server or Essential Business Server, where a web page is published to the internet that only has username and password fields. Upon logging in with AD credentials, the user sees the same Sharepoint home page they would have otherwise seen within the Lan if the were onsite (like Companyweb in Small Business Server).

Any suggestions or references to information about this scenario would be helpful in having my client decide whether they will purchase the product.

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?

Host-named site collections and content deployment jobs (SharePoint 2007 Internet facing Web Sites)



I have an editing web application with multiple site collections (only accessible internally on a dedicated port), and I've one public facing web application (on port 80). Now I want to create several host-named site collections in the public facing web application (to limit the number of web apps in the farm), and then use content deployment jobs to push the content from the site collections on the editing web app into these host-named site collections.

Does anyone have any experience with this?
Do you see any issues?

How does SharePoint Server 2010 for Internet Sites Exactly Work?



I am a SharePoint developer. I work in a company that develops and deploies SharePoint Solutions for Intranet sites.

Now, we have a customer that requires SharePoint Server 2010 for Internet Sites. I have read some things about it, but I am still unsure about the SharePoint for Internet Sites deployment.

The informations I have found are not enough to understand it very well, so, I would like someone helps me.

What does exactly SharePoint Server 2010 differ from SharePoint Server 2010 for Internet Sites?

Is SharePoint Server 2010 for Internet Sites SKU the same than SharePoint Server 2010 one?

http://sharepoint.microsoft.com/en-us/buy/Pages/Licensing-Details.aspx Provides some information about SharePoint 2010 licenses. There, we can find:

"The Server only licensing model is for external users only. Internal users can use this license only if all content, information, and applications are also accessible to external users. If the server has items that are for internal use only, those users require CALs, and their servers require licenses for SharePoint Server 2010."

But, how can we do those restrictions? Using SharePoint permissions? How does Microsoft check it?

Search in SharePoint 2010 does not show results for all users other than the timer service account


I have setup a new SharePoint 2010 setup. Created Search Service application and configured. Confirmed that the crawl went fine without any error for both Local site and a file share. In the Search application i confirmed that the All Site scope shows 3890 items.

ISSUE: If any of the user [including site collection administrator] browses the site and try to search something it does NOT show result [No error either it says We did not find any results for .....]. All Site scopes does not show 3890 items but only 28.

But if the timer service account [system account] logs in the site and does the search it works fine.With this account loggd in if i check the All Site scopes i do see 3890 items.

This does seems to be some thing to do with the permission, but i am not able to get hint where the mistake is.

I have done the follow till now.

> I checked the application association is correct
> Created a new web application and confirmed that the issue exists there as well
> Checked ULS log but dont see any error related to this.
> No relavent event id in Application event viewer

Please help

Viewing Video's in Sharepoint 2010--Will it slow down the performance for the end users?


I understand how to upload files to the media web part and creating an asset library, however; i'm trying to figure out where these files are being stored and the performance of the users.  I read the digital asset management library information on technet and couldn't find the exact answer i'm looking for. 

So, here's my question:  If I want to upload 10 videos to the asset library, they each may have around 50mb or less for the file size, and we want 200 plus users to access it, will this affect the performance of when these users hit the site?  We want to display the video's without having to buy a media server.  And the main question that will be asked is, who will host the content?  And, where is it residing?  My guess is that tt will be hosted in SP 2010.

I'm trying to incorporate a new intranet portal site for my company that will have a video to be played on the home page of the intranet site and the links will be located on the left and right side of the page with the video webpart in the center.  Will using the Blob cache and bit throttling be sufficient for this request?  I think it will be, I just want to make sure before we role this out.  Any help will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.



Deactivating the Sharepoint 'Backend' for Anonymous Users


Hi all,

I have part of my site that's accessible to anonymous users, now the permissions are correctly configured so that they can't mess with anything that they shouldn't be - but i'd still like to disable the sharepoint 'backend' pages that let them view all site content/browse lists that they do have access to etc. - is there any way to achieve this?
