How to add a custom action (a link) to Central Administration quick launch in sharepoint 2010 ?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 13, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

Hello everyone,
How can I add a link to Central administration quick launch? There are several links in Central administration quick launch by default under "Central administration" text ("System settings", "Monitoring", "Backup and Restore", "Security", "Upgrade and Migration", "General Application Settings", "Application Management", "Configuration Wizards"). How can I add new link under "Configuration Wizards". And I tried  but it doesn't work. A link appeared on the Central administration page but it isn't displayed at the quick launch (left panel) .
I did that as follows:

----elements.xml----

<Elements xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/">
  <CustomActionGroup
       Id="CA_TestQuickLink"
       Location="Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.Default"
       Title="Test Menu Quick Link"
       Sequence="250"
       RequiredAdmin="Delegated"
       ImageUrl="myImage.gif">
    <UrlAction
   &n

Failed to change Farm Account in Sharepoint 2010 server, now Central Administration is not accessibl

  
Hello, I have a problem, that I no longer can access Central Administration Website, only the Sharepoint itself. I was running installation of Sharepoint 2010 Server with administrative account ImTheAdmin, who is a Domain Admin in the domain on one of the Windows 2008 R2 member servers. Besides that, I made ImTheAdmin the primary administrator of the Sharepoint. ImTheAdmin became the only user of this Sharepoint 2010 server after installation.  I installed everything on one box with default installation settings. I used builtin SQL server, not Standard or Enterprise. What then happened is: Using ImTheAdmin account, I opened Central Administration Website, and it said, that I need to change the Farm Account, for the account for Farm was the default one (I think it was network service). So I created a regular domain user MYDOMAIN\SharepointFarmAccount. The account name was too long to be as a Windows 2000 name, so it showed there without last 't', e.g. MYDOMAIN\SharepointFarmAccoun. I thought, Windows 2000 is long gone, so I didn't pay much attention, I think everywhere the account SID is important. I don't know if that is the real problem with my failure later, but it might be one of the reasons. I put MYDOMAIN\SharepointFarmAccount down in to the form of Central Administration Website, added the check mark, that it would react to password changes, and pre

SharePoint 2010 organization installation without access to Central Administration?

  
Our organization of 5000+ internal users and 1000 external vendors wants to integrate SharePoint 2010. We are are being mandated to use an offering of SharePoint 2010 in the cloud. All peer organizations are also being told to use this service, and we are all going to be on a single SP farm. We want to have several internal site collections, customization of MySites, an extranet, and a public facing site. We will not have the ability to access central administration ourselves, we have to go through a centralized state IT department and have them make changes for us. We will only have admin abilities for our own site collections. Installing 3rd party web parts will be a nightmare process as well as making small changes to central admin resources as we are dependent on their time-line to test and integrate these for us. What issues are we likely to see because of this, and is this even a feasible option for us? BTW, they do not uphold SLA agreements and currently they sometimes take days or weeks to fix issues, where our people would take care of it in hours if possible.

cannot login to Central administration sharepoint 2010 - please help URGENT

  

I am not able to login to sharepoint administration, with farm admin, local admin, accounts, all logins are rejected, i recieve a page not available message.

I have run Psconfig, did not work.

I have even repaired the sharepoint 2010, (renamed 14 folder before repairing), This server is development box.

I have the option of fresh sharepoint 2010 install, I have around 8 sites, How do i attach the old sites back to new install.

I have used alrenate access mappings, is that causing issues.

This problem started when i installed a vendor product, Sharepoint informed me that premiumsite feature is not installed, I went ahead and installed premiumsite for the collection, then CA went down.

I am not sure, if it is sharepoint issue or iis issue, In the mean time, i have uninstalled the vendor product which was causing the issue

Please help me to revive the central admin

Thank you neel

Sharepoint 2010 Search Results crawling content on Quick Launch

  

I have a custom search scope defined for a site.  When I search, it is returning results for text that it is finding on the quick launch menu.  (For example, if the listname 'Tickets' is on the Quick Launch and the user searches for 'Tickets', all of the pages in the site get returned because the word 'Tickets' is on the Quick Launch)

Is this correct?  Is there any way to override that?

Sharepoint 2010 Central Administration Web site on Windows 7 comes up empty

  

Using the information presented at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee554869.aspx (slightly modified to accommodate the fact that the SharePoint 2010 is today distributed in the form of an ISO file), I was able to finish all steps including all 10 steps of the configuration wizard. Dismissing the wizard should result with launching the browser showing the new SharePoint site - in my case however, that browser shows a completely empty page.

Similarly, selecting the SharePoint 2010 Central Administration entry from the Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Products folder (on the list of all installed products) results with the browser started at URL http://nik-workstation:23789/ - which is also completely empty

Since UAC is disabled - it ought to be the database. I believe that before installing SP 2010, I had SQL Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008 R2 November CTP (this is required by Azure AppFabric development) and I was hoping that the SP installer will find the database that fits the best. 

What is the best way to handle this? What is causing the problem?

adding levels of flyouts to sharepoint 2010 Quick Launch

  

Hi,

I have Sharepoint Enterprise RTM Trial on Windows Server 2008 SP2.

I have a team site in which i have a flyout Quick Launch menu as describe in technet discussion . I just wanted to add a level 2 (sub level of a level) in Quick launch, for example:

Heading > Sub heading > Link 1

                                   > Link 2

I have tried it from Site settings > Navigation page but i have found that a heading cannot be created in a heading i.e, sub heading is not allowed....

Is it possible to achieve this task without writing code ?

thanks.


Unable to create task using Custom task Process Action in Sharepoint Designer 2010 workflow

  
Problem : In Sharepoint Designer 2010, we are working on creating reusable workflow.
In workflow we are using "Start Custom task process" action. It has been observed that,all of the sudden it behaves weirdly. It creates task but without any number appending to taskform.for eg. when we create task it generally shows "Start Task(1) process on Current Item with these users" However now it does not provide any number with Task. It shows "Start Task process on Current Item with These users"
In task form , it does not allows to add task forms fields from existing fields nor allows to create outcomes.
Thus we are unable to create any new workflows or edit and enhance exisitng workflows in the site.This is showstoper for project. Client wants to use sharepoint designer exclusively to develop workflow.
When we tried to create workflow (Sharepoint designer) in a new site with new list it allows us to create custom tasks process. 
Resoultions approaches done so far.
1) Took backup of site on local box from Server and tried to create custom process task but not able to do it.
2) On Server removed all unwanted workflow status columns from the tasks list but still not able to create custom process task 
3) Took backup and t
