Permissions required for "Copy..." function in "Manage Content and Structure"

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 19, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hi! I have a question...

I have created a custom permission role i sharepoint, lets call it "Creator". What List ans Site permission are needed to be able to use the "Copy..." function in sites and subsites in "Manage Content and Structure" tool in Sharepoint?

According to my tests the roles "Approve" as well as the "Manage Permissions" is required to be able to "Copy..". Why is this? Doesn't seem to have anything to do with each other.

Thank you for any hints and tips regarding this!!

User does not have required permissions to view Report Manager on SQL 2008 r2

Hi all, We are installing SQL Server 2008 r2 onto a server, and this installation includes Reporting Services. SSRS works, I can deploy reports, use Report Manager, Report Builder, etc., all using my admin privs. The problem is when NON-ADMIN users connect to \\server\reports.  They get the following error: User 'DOMAIN\user' does not have required permissions.  Verify that sufficient permissions have been granted and Windows User Account Control (UAC) restrictions have been addressed. This error is resolved by giving the DOMAIN\user account local admin privs on the server. Granting admin privs is not a solution.  We have accountants and other non-technical people that will use Report Manager and Report Builder.  We can't just give every person admin privs on the production SQL server. I have done a lot of research on the web... I see a results involving earlier versions of SQL Server and Report Manager, but this is 2008 r2 - different webserver, etc. How can I resolve this issue?

Required Permissions for SQL Server 2005 DB and Impersonation

I have an Intranet ASP.NET WebForm application that uses Integrated Windows authenication and Impersonation (required becuase triggers are used to create audit logs) to connect to a SQL Server 2005 DB on the same box (no double hop issues). Normal users get their DB permissions via the <Domain\Domain Users AD group, which has a SQL Server login and a user created for the DB.  Everything works fine when I explictly grant the associated DB user CONTROL permissions on the DB.

However, after doing more research on the actual permissions granted via CONTROL, this seems to be way too much access.  The best decription of the CONTROL permission I found was at http://www.mssqltips.com/tip.asp?tip=1718, which states, "This grants the equivalent to ownership over the database. The db_owner fixed database role has this permission implicitly."  However, every other DB permission combination I've tried without granting CONTROL always fails to connect to the DB.  Impersonation is working, the correct accessing Domain/User is referenced in the error message.  The approriate User in the DB is in the db_datareader and db_datawriter roles and when I explictly grant them every single permission on the DB except CONTROl they fail with a "

Copy List Item in SPD 2010 Workflow Fails if Check Out/Check In Required


I've seen this issue on 3 different Sharepoint 2010 implementations, including upgrades and fresh installations...

The workflow, which works fine in WSS 3.0/MOSS, operates on change of a document.  Workflow reviews a specific column and based on contents of that column, it checks out the document, copies the current item from the current library to another library in the same site and then deletes the item in the current library.

In SharePoint 2010, the following occurs.  Again, this occurs in the upgraded workflow as well as in a brand new workflow created with SPD 2010 on a site that blank / not upgraded.

  • Workflow starts on an item that is verified to not already be checked out.
  • Document is checked out
  • Document IS copied to the other library
  • Workflow fails and is canceled with the following errors:
    The workflow could not copy the item. Make sure the source and destination lists have the same columns and column settings.  (They do.)
    The workflow operation failed because the action requires the document to be checked out. (The item is checked out by workflow - as is evidenced by the fact that the item is still checked out after workflow fails.)
  • RESULT:  the copy operation does work, workflow thinks it doesn't and fails on that step, item is not deleted

Creating a "my site" - permissions required

I had a problem whereby users connecting to my SharePoint site (user is authenticated with their domain account) couldn't access their 'My Site' or 'My Profile' - Access Denied errors kept occuring. It is a pretty standard installation of SharePoint, and the User Profile Service Application is fully configured and all authenticated users have permission to create a personal site. However, I found that all users (other than me as admin) could not access their personal site or profile.

After much searching about this, I found a solution was to grant all authenticated users access to "My Site" (http://server/my) site. Is this the correct thing to do? I was assuming it work by default and nothing I read suggested I had to do this. Only administrator and system account seemed to have rights the 'my' site by default.

What are the required Security permissions to call SAM accountmanagement over the wire, using System



I need to perform remote management on the local SAM database.  I am getting a security permission error, but can't figure out what the required permissions need to be.  My test harness works great as a locally authenticated user however the permission issue gets thrown when I am trying to connect to a remote host that isn't part of the domain.

The exception is getting thrown on the call to ValidateCredentials, which is found in the constructor for the LocalAccount class below, specifically you will see it  public LocalAccount(string Server, string User, string Password)

My test environment includes windows 7 machines that are working in a offline mode trying to connect to machines running XP, 2003 and Windows 7 that are not part of the domain.

Any and all help would be appreciated.

Using the "Send To" function to copy SSRS reports (.rdl) from one document library to another

We are trying to use the "Send To" function to let users get copies of SSRS reports, but still retain the ability to roll out changes by updating the original.  This would help us have "one version of the truth" but still have the ability to copy reports from one SharePoint site to another.  One reason to have the report on multiple sites is to give users the ability to set default values for the parameters.  IT creates one copy and the users configure it to meet their own needs.

Copying the file using "Send To" works.  However, it loses the data source link which effectively kills the copied report.  We have tried this in various forms of permissions and sequences, but experience the same issue consistently.  Obviously, one could re-enter the data source link, but that is not optimal.

We saw the same behavior when we copied the report out of Windows Explorer from library to another.

Is this is a known issue?  Can it be fixed?  If so, how?

Database permissions required for Smo.Server.NetName


Hi all,

who can explain why when i use this code:

  ServerConnection conn = ServerConnection(serverName);

  var server = new Server(conn);
  string testInstance = server.NetName

next exception is thrown:

"Caught exception in SQL Product Configuration wizard. Exception: Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Common.ExecutionFailureException: An exception occurred while executing a Transact-SQL statement or batch. ---> System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: xp_regread() returned error 5, 'Access is denied.'
xp_regread() returned error 5, 'Access is denied.'
xp_regread() returned error 5, 'Access is denied.'"

user can connect using SQL management studio.

It will only work if i give user "SysAdmin" permission. Obviously it is too high of a permission to read server and db properties

Any help is much appreciated,
