Sharepoint 2010 and Outlook Social Connector

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Ok, need some expert advice here. I have setup a new SharePoint Farm, complete, not standalone, with nothing by the My Sites Host site collection. I can access the profiles by https://sharepoint.domain.com/my or by https://sharepoint.domain.com/my/person.aspx?accountname=domain/user. /my/default.aspx works as well. My profile sync is working, I get the data pulled properly from AD for these profiles and it propagates the managers info and org browser, etc. 

For the life of me, I cannot get the Social Connector to do anything for SharePoint. No News Feeds, nothing. I click on Add in the People Pane, and choose "on My Site" and it errors out. 

I have looked through countless blogs, but all of them seem to be centered on the User Profile Service, and mine is obviously working. My users can update their profiles directly on the site, so it's not permissions. 

Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated.

Outlook 2010 / Sharepoint authenthication issue


Hi all,

I'm using Outlook 2010 on Windows 7 64bit.

My company uses a hosted Sharepoint server (I guess it's Sharepoint 2010). There's a team calendar, which I would like to connect to my Outlook 2010. Linking it to Outlook works fine until it tries to update the calendar with the Sharepoint server. I shows the following error:

Error (0x80070005) when running the task "SharePoint": "You are not authorized to view the SharePoint list (team calendar). Contact the administrator of SharePoint site. HTTP 401."

So this tells me, I'm not authorized to connect - which is quite clear because Outlook never asked my for any username or password.

Funny thing is when I try to add an internet calendar (Right mouse click on calendars, Add calendar, Internet calendar) and use the url of the sharepoint list, it asks me for username and password, but then fails to add the calendar, as it isn't a webcal (which is OK).

BUT: As Outlook at this moment has the username and password, the exisiting Sharepoint calendar synchronizes correctly. This works until Outlook is being restarted.

Does anyone have an idea why I'm not asked for any authentication? Maybe there's some setting I haven't found yet? It works with trying to add the webcal any time when I start Outlook, but t

Connect to Outlook feature in SharePoint 2010 still using .pst files?


The Connect to Outlook feature in SharePoint Server 2007 uses a .pst file to store content that is visible in Outlook. This has caused issues in the past with a client's enterprise policy of preventing use of .pst files on desktops. This particular client has an application that periodically checks for .pst files and deletes them, which breaks the Connect to Outlook feature for them.

Does SharePoint 2010 use the same functionality to Connect to Outlook, or something different?

Sharepoint 2010 and Outlook 2007 Problems!


I am using SP 2010 and have outlook 2007. I am using the calendar synch option and am easily able to synch the calendar from SP to Outlook. I was easily able to drag and drop all appointments at once from my outlook calendar to the SP calendar and they showed up on the SP site. Now I am unable to make any further changes on the SP calendar using Outlook that will show on the SP site. It will say it is "Send/Receive Status % complete" at the bottom of the Outlook screen, but when I look at the SP site, no changes are reflected. It will allow the opposite, if I make changes to the calendars on the SP site and then the changes will show on my Outlook SP calendars.

I have full permission in SP. Really confused why it let me synch at first FROM Outlook to the SP site, but no longer will.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Outlook Social Connector photo from MySite not showing



I have the outlook social connector connected to my mysite host in sharepoint 2010, it is pulling activity feeds just fine but not the photo's.

When I was running SharePoint 2010 Beta and Office 2010 Beta, this worked fine, but since I have installed RTM for both, the photo's do not show.

I have not done a 2 way sync with Active Directory to send the photo's to AD, as I did not do this at beta, but as I already mentioned - i could see the photos in the beta environment.

Any ideas?

Sharepoint Services 3.0 - hooking into outlook 2007 / 2010?


I'm looking at creating a Meeting Workplace using sharepoint services 3.0.

I'm reading a lot about calendars and how you can configure them to receive emails & update the calendar & such.

What I want to know is if it can be hooked into Outlook 2007 / 2010 so that it will either directly update my (and other members) calendars, or if it can be configured to broadcast the meeting request to the other members.
