Account login problem

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 19, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I have some problems with sahrepoint 2010 account management...

In my windows 7 i have 2 accounts: an administrator account (let's call it "admin") and a standard user (called "reader"). In the SP2010 central administration i have correctly added both accounts as "managed accounts". In my site i have modified the "site permissions": "admin" account was already in the "[Site collection name] Owners" group, and i have added the "reader" account to the "[Site collection name] Visitors" group.

When i open a SP website i have to login: let's say i log in as "reader". Then i want to log in as "admin", so i select "Sign in as a different user" in the top-right corner of the page. Now when i insert username and password of the "admin" account, i get some kind of error, as if the password is wrong (but i get no message, just the same window again asking me for username and password). At the third attempt, i get the 401 UNAUTHORIZED page. But when i close the page a re-open it, i result logged in as "admin", without having to insert username and password!

Is this a normal behavior? Otherwise, what could be the problem?

stsadm change in 2010? login as system account problem


I have installed SharePoint 2010 beta 2 on a HP Blade in a Domain Environment. SQL Server 2008 SP1 CU2 is on a seperate Blade. Installation and configuration went ok. Everything runs under my Domain-Admin Account (SQL, Farm, ...)

The first few sites went smooth, after a while i noticed that not my Domain-Admin Account was written in the top-right corner, but "System Account". I remembered that problem from MOSS 2007 and tried stsadm updatefarmcredentials. Result after 30 seconds of waiting:
Value cannot be null.
Parameter name: farm

To be exactly i tried: stsadm -o updatefarmcredentials -userlogin XXX -userpassword XXX

There is definatly no typo and i tried varios different things like with "" and without "", with -identitytype and withou, and so on..

When i change the Farm-Account at the GUI, to a normal Account, i see my Domain-Admin Account in the top right corner again instead of System Account. When i change back, the same problem occurs.

Im pretty sure i resolved the issue in 07 with the command written above. Did the syntax change? Do i have to use Powershell? It looks like i have to specify the farm somehow (even thou there is only one farm consisting of one server on which im running the command)

Of course i'd be happy for any other solution to th

Problem with LayoutTemplate and the Login-control

Hi, I'm trying to make a login-form for my website, but i needed to customize the standard-layout, because the validators made the login-button move a couple of pixels to the right of the textfieldsWhen using the LayoutTemplate, I can't seem to get the login to work.. When adding a button with "Login" as the ID, shouldn't that button handle the loginprocess from the membership-providers validateuser-method?If not, and I'm supposed to handle the loginprocess myself? And if so, how do I get to the validateuser-method? I don't wanna have the method in two seperate places if I can avoid it..

Forms Based Authentication - problem with custom master page and login page



I have successfully enabled and set up FBA (Forms Based Authentication) on my SharePoint 2010 Foundation server. The thing is that I need to customize the look and feel of the login page. I have successfully customized the page (and master page) to look the way I want, however, when I try to log in, I get the following error/message on the page:
"Forms Based Authentication on classic Web applications has been deprecated".

What I've done:
Made copies of /_layouts/simple.master and /_layouts/login.aspx and renamed the copies. The markup in the master page is MUCH simpler than the original, but I've kept all the ContentPlaceholders that I don't use (most of them) in a hidden <asp:Panel at the bottom of the page.

I've changed the web.config file:
<authentication mode="Forms">
      <forms loginUrl="/_layouts/loginCustom.aspx" />

So, I'm not getting any errors on the page until I try to log in. When I use the default settings (login.aspx and simple.master) it works just fine (but damn that page looks ugly!).

Does anyone know what I might be missing?

Update: I believe the reason it doesn't work is because my custom login aspx is not part of the Claims Based Web Application (because it's sitting
