Hi All,

The prechecker utility is giving us following issues list. How to resplve the issues below:-

1) It says that we should manually upgrade all custom list views to the new XSLT-based list views. How this could be done?

Sharepoint 2010 user's migration.

Hello everybody, I've migrated my Sharepoint 2007 (Windows 2003 AD 1) to our new Sharepoint 2010 (Windows 2008 R2 AD 2) and I've found problems with the users (migrated them with ADMT 3.2 preserving SiD). They cannot connect in this new Sharepoint, probably because they are still registered in Sharepoint as AD1\user and not AD2\user? There's a way I can complete this migration without losing the old Sharepoint users security\permissions? Thanks in advance, Yuri.

Quest lotus notes to sharepoint 2010 migration

Hi, I am using Quest tool for migrating from notes to SharePoint 2010. However, i cannot find any method using which I could validate the integrity of the migrated data which could be a problem when a large number of databases are in the picture. Also, is it possible to migrate the various views in a notes database to sharepoint, instead of selecting just a single view (using Quest) ? Waiting for replies!!      

Issues with updating Lists with Manager Names and User Profile Imports in SharePoint 2010 Server

I am having a curious problem with SharePoint 2010 Server. I have imported all the user profiles of our organization into SharePoint User Profile Service Application from our Active Directory. When the Manager name imports it comes in as domain/login. The organizational browser seems to work for MOST people, but not all. I believe this is contributing to my second problem, which is, I have setup a very simple workflow in SharePoint Designer that simply looks up the persons Manager, then places that information into a field called "Approval 1". After that it looks at Approval 1 and get the Manager name and populated "Approval 2" with that information, and so on. I have used an Impersonation Step as the Farm Administrator in the workflow and I have done it without the impersonation step. Both results in the same problem. When I enter my name into the list and run the workflow it runs beautifully give every manager up the chain to the top. However, if I put any other person's name in there it gives me the error "Workflow failed to get user profile for user: ____". I went to my supervisor's office and asked him to run the workflow. Using his login he had the exact same result--if my name was in there it worked great, otherwise, it gave an error. Any help with this strange error would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks

WSS 3.0 Knowledge Base Template doesn't function properly after SharePoint 2010 migration

I migrated our WSS 3.0 instance to SharePoint 2010 in a dev environment.  So far, everything works with the exception of the most heavily utilized portion of our WSS 3.0 installation – which is a "Knowledge Base" sub-site utilizing the following features:   Knowledge Base List Instances: List Instances for the Knowledge Base Application Template Knowledge Base Modules: Modules for the Knowledge Base Application Template Knowledge Base Provisioning Handler   Link to Knowledge Base Template http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=BC4E5C4E-FBBB-4666-8E32-C4CEE09E1FE6&displaylang=en   Two issues exist with the Knowledge Base after migrating.   1.       The “Write new Article” feature which uses a content type called “Wiki Knowledge Base Article” use to open a “New Wiki Page” that provided the all of the associated fields specified in the List Content type settings.  Upon creating the new Wiki Page (i.e. Knowledge base article) it would associate it with the “Knowledge Base” document library.  The “Write new Article” feature now fails to utilize / recognize the Content Type settings and instead create a blank New Page without any fields except for “New page name:” and also creates a “Site Pages&

format-number issues with the Data View Web Part in SharePoint 2010

I have a number column named @Year_x0020_1_x0020_Revenue in the data view web part in SharePoint Designer 2010. In the Xpath expression builder - @Year_x0020_1_x0020_Revenue previews "500,000" If I use the format-number in the Xpath expression builder ==> format-number(@Year_x0020_1_x0020_Revenue, '$#,##0.00;-$#,##0.00'), it returns NaN. Is there any reason? 

SharePoint 2010 Profile Synchronization Issues

Hi Guys, I hope you can give me a hand on this. I am having a synchronization issue and it has me puzzled.  I have my moss server up and running without any issue.  It is even being used by departments already…which is great…documents are being uploaded…my sites created…department pages…etc.  Around mid-July I set up the user synchronization with AD…which worked fine.  I was able to set up profile synching without any issues…  The issue I am having now is that the profile syncing is no longer running for some reason.  When I click on Configure Synchronization connections, my old connection isn’t there anymore…so I click new and get the following message.   "Cannot navigate to the requested page while user profile synchronization is running.  Please wait for the current Synchronization to finish"   when i check my Profile Sync Settings, i see that User profile sync is not currently provisioned...and the incremental sync schedule is disabled.   And when I check the running jobs…I do not have any jobs running.   And finally, when I check the services running on the MOSS server, my User Profile Synchronization Service is sitting on stopped…and when I click start…it stays on starting for about 15 mins…and then goes back to stopped

Issues connecting SharePoint Workspace 2010 with SharePoint 2010

Has anyone tried using sharepoint 2010 client with networksolutions sharepoint 2007 server? i recently updated to office 2010 and also decided to start using sharepoint as it seems to be a great way to get things done with the team i manage internationally. Problem is that when i signed up for the sharepoint server service with network solutions it turns out that they are using sharepoint server 2010. every time i try to connect to the server using sharepoint 2010 from my desktop i get the following error message "sharepoint workspace cannot sync with the specified sharepoint site because its server version is not supported". I'm using office 2010 14.0.4760.1000 (32-bit). Can you guys let me know what i can do (besides downgrading sharepoint 2010 to 2007) to actually connect? surely i don't have to downgrade what i just bought to get this done? Any help appreciated.

Sharepoint Server 2010 issues


Hi, I am trying to implement these recommendations on a Sharepoint 2010 farm. I cannot get it to work. I have created a test site manually and got that to work however.

Has anyone else been able to get this working with Sharepoint 2010? 

The only deviation from the published instructions is that I have tried to edit the system.webserver.httperrors section in case this has some bearing but it doesnt seem to have made any difference. I just keep getting 404 errors.



SharePoint sync with Project 2010 - issues


I am having some issues with syncing project 2010 and sharepoint.

The following scenario works well...

Create plan.
Sync to sharepoint list.
Save Project file.

However the following scenario  does not work well...

Create plan.
Sync to Sharepoint list.
Forget to save project file.

When i re-open project file and sync, i get the error...

The task list was last synchronized to a different project plan. If you continue the task list will be appended to the project plan.
If I continue at this stage then i get a naming error.

One workaround is to delete all the project plan tasks and re-sync.
This brings all the sharepoint tasks back into the project file..
However, I cannot use the existing milestone field in SharePoint to sync with the project file.

Is there any way to sync project fields into existing columns in SharePoint?

I do not want to create a new column as i have a number of views with the old milestone column as part of a filter.

Any ideas?

Migration from WSS 3.0 & MOSS 2007 to SharePoint 2010


Hi All,

I am kiran and working on some migration project.

I am stuck with some basic questions,


1. I have got couple of hudred WSS 3.0 sites

2. I have got couple of hundred MOSS 2007 Enterrprise sites

I need to migrate both the above to SharePoint Server 2010 platform.

My Question is,


1. Can I directly migrate WSS 3.0 sites to SharePoint 2010 env? Is there any need to step up to MOSS 2007 and then to SharePoint 2010? Becuase all documentations talk about migrating MOSS 2007 to SS 2010.

Your help is appreiciated.

Also can you link me to some sound help links please?






Looking for guidance: Integrated SharePoint SSRS migration and upgrade from 2007 to 2010


Our existing prod farm is MOSS 07 with an integrated SSRS instance using SQL Server 2008, both on Windows Server 2003 64bit boxes. SharePoint databases are on a different SQL Server 2008 server.

I have built a new SharePoint 2010 farm on Windows Server 2008 R2 boxes, using a single SQL Server 2008 R2 Enterprise server as the backend for both SharePoint databases and Reporting Services (installed in Integrated mode). We are going to be using the database-attach method of upgrading our SharePoint farm.

Is there any specific guidance out there on exactly how to migrate/upgrade Reporting Services in this scenario? I've read through some of the MSDN content (How To: Migrate a Reporting Services Installation) but nothing seems to deal specifically with doing this when in Integrated mode with SharePoint. Our business heavily relies on SSRS reports in SharePoint and also shared and custom report subscriptions via email.

We do have a dev SharePoint 2010 farm in a similar configuration that I can test migration/upgrade steps. Thanks.

Issues Exposing Excel Contents and SharePoint 2010


I have an Excel spreadsheet and I want to use it to trigger a work flow ... BUT ... I don't want to just use the creation or modification of it to trigger the work flow ... I want some data in the sheet to trigger it. 

I followed some How-To's and was able to get to the point where I set up a Site Column and associated it to a Custom Content Type (i.e.: my Excel sheet) and when someone creates a new document this is loaded with the ability to manually enter the value in the Document Properties bar that appears.  Great ... but why would I want to manually enter the value again when I have already have it in a cell below.  I thought, OK a little more work to do and I am done.

So, after some research, I learned that I have to create, and link, a Named Cell Range and Custom Field in my Excel document and then expose that to SharePoint. I was referenced to this article (http://tinyurl.com/29l98rl) and performed the steps as outlined ... and thought, "Great that was easy ... I am done !!"

Well ... that wasn't quite true.  After testing this out I soon realized that the data in the cell was not being populated into the Site Column and thus was not being populated back to SharePoint.  So I went back and double checked it and am pretty sure that I d
