Unable to delete groups in SharePoint Foundation 2010

In the "People and Groups: All Groups" screen I click the edit icon next to the group and then click on the "Delete" button and ok the following warning dialog. However, the group doesn't get deleted. Any idea why this is happening and how to finally delete this group? Thanks.

Can not delete large sharepoint site

Hi, I'm wondering if anyone can suggest how I can get rid of a large site (over 10 G) which we don't need anymore. When I try to delete it from the Settings.aspx page I guess process get stuck somewhere - progress bar just sit at around 25% for an hour. When I cancel out of the delete page - I find the site structure is intact. No clue in the ULS logs - all it says deleting that particular site.... The worse thing is that it makes the whole portal inaccessible...probably due to slowness. I even tried thorugh the STSADM deleteweb command - same result. I then thought it would be better deleting the whole site collection where that particular site belongs to from the Central Administration. No luck....when it takes the site down I see many different types of application log warnings (1309, 2262) and errors (5586, 6398).  I found another similar posting here - but really want to avoid the answer from that (I explained why at the end of that post). I'm hoping anyone else can suggest me a way to delete this site. Also any suggestion how long it might take to delete a site of that size? This is a MOSS 2007 farm with SP2 applied and SQL server 2005 at the backend. Thank you in advanced!  

WebParts with audiences based on SharePoint groups containing AD Groups are not visible.

My client has two webparts on a page. Each of the webparts is audienced with a SharePoint group. Each SharePoint group contains one or more AD groups. The groups are not deep nested. I.e. SharePointGroup -----> ADGroup -----> list of user accounts.. When a user in any of these groups browses to the page, they cannot see the webpart. An AD user added to the SharePoint group sees the audiences webpart properly. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/948681 references this issue, however these servers are all recently built with Service Pack 2 slipstream install media, so this hotfix is not valid. They believe that the webparts were working fine previously, but then some ILM work was carried out in the AD over the weekend and it's possible that this has changed some fo the group memberships. Given that we're using SP Groups and AD Groups, Does the actual SSP Import bear any relevance to these memberships or does SharePoint use a (potentially cached) Group memberships object on the SPPrincipal?

Delete specific permissions programatically in Sharepoint 2010

I have created a windows application to create custom permission levels(4) in sharepoint 2010 for deployment purpose of our sharepoint site. I am able to create custom permission levels(4) successfully. My requirement is, each time when I run this windows application, I need to check whether those 4 custom permissions levels already exists or not and if they exist, I need to delete those 4 permission levels and recreate them. How can I check whether the site contains these permission levels already and it contains them, how can I delete those 4 only and recreate them?

SharePoint FormToolbar and Delete - after delete page redirects to a non-existant address

hi all,
i have a custom list and in the EditForm.aspx i have the typical SharePoint:FormToolbar.  this has only two props set : runat=server and ControlMode="Edit".   when we press the delete button on the toolbar to delete an item from the list it deletes it but redirects to the root site /_layouts - where we get an access denied error.

I tried adding the RedirectURL property to point back to the EditForm.aspx but when i do that the Editform will not even load - stating an error "Form control does not have ControlMode set".

Anybody have any idea how to get this thing to redirect to a page i have already? 

thanks in advance,


Creating default SharePoint groups for upgraded sites



I am doing some testing in preparation for a DB attach upgrade from MOSS 2007 to SharePoint Server 2010, and I've run across a bunch of old sites that do not have the default Owners, Members, and Visitors groups. Without those groups (specifically, without Members) we won't be able to take full advantage of the My Sites Memberships page. 

I noticed, though, that when I "Enable Enterprise Features" for all current sites from within Central Administration, sometimes those groups get created on a site that didn't have them before. I've done this on a few different environments and it doesn't seem to always create those groups. Now, I didn't think I had to run Enable Enterprise Features because our 2007 environment was Enterprise, but then I realized some of the sites were created back in SharePoint 2003 and enterprise features might never have been run on the sites when it was upgraded to MOSS 2007. 

So the question: is running Enable Enterprise Features for current sites supposed to create the default groups if they don't exist (along with everything else it does)? Is that the recommended way to get groups made for all sites so site admins/owners can add people to that new Members group which allows the users to visit their My Site page to view all the sites they are members of?

SharePoint, Active Directiry Groups and Caching


Hello.  I support a portal running on SharePoint.  For some of our SharePoint sites that have larger memberships, we manage the membership through AD groups.  In some cases, clients seem to encountering a caching issue.  As user will be added to the AD group, but SharePoint will continue to give that user an Access Denied message to the site.  Other users who are in the AD group can access the site without issue.  In some cases, creating a new AD group, copying the membership of the original group over, and adding that new group to the site permissions resolves the issue, but not always.  Typically, adding the involved user directly to the site permissions resolves the issue for that user.  Can anyone tell me where SharePoint is caching this information and/or what I can do to clear it out?  Thanks!
