sharepoint 2007 showing System Account instead of Username / full name

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 19, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 
When i login with my username & password into sharepoint (2007) site, it displays as a "System Account" instead of my username or my full name on the top right corner of the website. What ever changes i make inside the site, for example upload a file, post a comment, sharepoint marks it as a System account instead of my name.

Can someone help me figure it out why ?

Thanks.

Sharepoint site collections accessible only by system account

  
I I have setup a VM to start palying with SP development, everything running under administrator (sql, sharepoint services....). After succefully creating the root on port 80 and a couple of site collections, whenever I shoot IE http://mymoss or any othe site collection, I go right away to the web site without the usual authentification dialog box. On the right jand side, I see I am logged in as "System account".

How to change the System Account into Domain Administrator account in Sharepoint?

  
I'm attaching the captured image from the Central Admin of our Sharepoint Server. (http://www.experts-exchange.com/images/346242/Central-Admin.jpg) As you can see from the Central Admin image, the user account shown is "System Account", in whereas I logged in as our Domain Administrator. Then when you check it's info from My Settings, the details from the captured image System Account Info was shown. ( http://www.experts-exchange.com/images/346243/System-Account-Info.jpg) How can I change it as be DOMAIN\Administrator & not SHAREPOINT\system or System Account? Please advise...

SharePoint 2007 - Survey list - Getting user's Windows account ID from a web service using display

  
Surveys...grrrr.   I am developing a .NET console application that accesses survey data from a single survey list using the MOSS web service "Lists".   I am able to enumerate the survey list and get to the items except for the author of the survey response.  When I get to the column ows_Author, it appears to be a lookup value formatted like this:  "1066;#JOHN DOE".   How can I, using web services alone, lookup the corresponding Windows login ID of that user?  If I go to the survey in SharePoint and click on the name in the view, it takes me to a site-based user profile page that does show the account ID I want.  The page that displays appears to be a virtualized page like this "_layouts/userdisp.aspx?ID=1066".   What I really need is JOHN DOE's account ID like "domain\id". Can I get to this with the data I have available? Thanks

Putting SharePoint 2007 Server on another system

  
I have a production 2007 SharePoint Server running on a server. I am able to re-image the whole server into another system for testing and training purpose. Everything works fine on that system except SharePoint. Some reasons are because the IP address has changed and the URL has also changed. How do I access the SharePoint Server on the new system? I tried typing the IP number of the new system, but it doesn't work. I would appreciate very much if someone can tell me how I can bring the SharePoint server back to 'live' on the new system with a new IP number. I can't use the same URL name because the real one is in production and it is on the DNS. Thanks.

Sharepoint 2007 Webpart not showing up in 2010

Sharepoint 2007 delay in files are not showing up in document library

  

When saving a file from ie. an email attachment into a sharepoint document library the files show up in explorer view of the document library but there is about a 20 minutes delay before they show up in the default view of the document library.  This is quite frustrating as because you can not see it there the users try to save as again. 

This seems to work correctly in our test sharepoint environment.  Does anyone have any ideas as where to start looking.

Thanks


SharePoint 2007 - lost full control of site collection

  

We have SharePoint 2007 up and running for a few months.  We have 6 site collections.  Last weekend two of the site collections become read only.  Only two of us are Site Owner with Full Control.

althought, another person and myself are Primany/Seconday Site Collection Administrator.  I verify this by

Central Administration > Application Management > Site Collection Owners.

neither of us can access to the site collection from the web to add pages, to create lists, to add/remove users, or to set permission to the site colletions.

Any idea why, please let us know.  Greatly appreciated.
