User group invalid for new document

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 26, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint


Defined a user group and a site column of type people/group directing to this group.

Also defined a content type and added the site column to this content type.

When I create a new word document of this content type, word opens displaying my site column ok. But when I enter it, I see that all active directory (AD) entries are displayed. I want it to display only those users I added to the user group I created. Moreover, users can select any user from AD, which makes defining a user group and a site column meaningless.

This problem is only in creating new documents with Word. If I edit properties of an already existing document in my site, everything is ok: I can select only the users in the group.

Large document libraries with a custom user interface


We recently migrated our document management system to SharePoint (WSS 3.0) and I adapted my VB6 client application to search for and retrieve a list of documents from this new SharePoint library using the Lists web service. Although the total number of documents in this library is 90,000 at one site and over 145,000 at another, my VB6 application never retrieves more than 600-700 documents at a time. From reading white papers such as "Working with Large Lists in Office SharePoint Server 2007" (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=95450&clcid=0x409), it appears that if my custom user interface limits the number of items returned in a search of these large lists, that it may not be necessary to put these documents into folders. However, our current scanning software, KnowledgeLake Capture, by default places newly scanned documents into folders based on the year, month, day and hour, which means that these documents are placed in nested folders 4 levels deep.

There are also some 20 metadata fields on these document libraries that allow us to filter these document libraries so that search results will in most cases be limited to a few hundred items.

We acquired new servers (Windows Server 2008 with SQL Server 2008) to host our SharePoint libraries and we are running WSS 3.0 S

Invalid URL"" after copy or move a document.



We have an website that have 3 libraries. The "first Library" is used only to edit documents and it's called "my documents". When a user finish of edit your documents here, they start a workflow that will check fields in the document and move the document for the second library (using Sharepoint Designer Workflow - without custom actions).
In "second library" we have a big workflow. This WF has some steps for approve, collect feedback, generate sub-tasks and others things related for the document. This WF use many custom actions in (Sharepoint Designer).
When this WF arrives to the end, the document is moved to "third library", that is a official repository of documents in the enterprise.
The entire cycle works fine. But when someone creates a internal copy of the document in the "first library" to begin again the flow, we receive a Invalid Url error. It occurs when any update operations is executed over the document item, the value is conserved but the error is displayed. After it, we can not execute other workflows over the item.
If we save the document in local disk, delete the library item, and then upload it again, the problem is solved.

Some one have an idea about why and how solve it?  We are using WSS 3.0.

The following is an error registred in log file when you d

How to check effective permissions for a user or group for a SQL server object or whole server?

Guys, How do I see effective permissions for a user or group for a SQL server object or whole server? For example, a user is not listed in security/logins, but he is a member of few groups and some of them have assigned permissions on SQL server (again either directly or through membership in other groups) Even when I select an object (a table), check properties/permission – it doesn’t let me select any principal, except those listed on security/logins… Anyway, what is the right way to see effective permissions for a user or group? Sorry for asking such a simple question, I’ve searched but found nothing relevant.

Problem with access to a user in AD group

Hi all, We are managing our security in Sharepoint (WSS 3.0) with AD groups instead of Sharepoint groups. This worked fine until now. For an unknown reason, one single user from an AD group cannot access a page (while other users from the same group can). The group is also a distribution list in AD (so it's a security group and distribution list for emails). It includes several other distribution lists such as: L-All-Corporate-Employees    L-Administration          User 1          User 2           ...     L-Accounting         User 1         ... ...   So far I never had any issue with that kind of approach,  but yesterday we published a new web part page and wanted only the corporate employees to get access to it, so I broke rights inheritance on the page and added the L-All-Corporate-Employees group with View rights. As I already said, I tested with one user from the group (let's say from the L-Administration sub-group) and it works, now I receive an email from another user (let's say from the L-Accounting sub-group) which tells me he doesn't have access... But they're all part of the L-All-Corporate-Employees group, so they should all

User Profile Service - "The specified user or domain group was not found"

Hi there, I had configured the User Profile Service and all was working well (Syncing with AD etc.). However, something has gone wrong. The services still appear to be running; both Forefront Identity Manager services are running, and the services show as 'Started' in Central Administration. The 'My Profile' and 'My Site' options have disappeared though, and browsing to the My Sites page results in an error (Could not load user profile). To make matters much worse, it seems to have also broken the Central Administration site. If I try and go to 'Manage Service Applications' I get another error (The specified user or domain group was not found). This error seems to come up on around half of the pages on the Central Administration site. Looking up the error (abb6b174-0f71-413a-a27a-41cdc87b66d0) in the logs I find this: 09/06/2010 15:35:45.44  w3wp.exe (0x0868)                        0x06A0 SharePoint Portal Server       User Profiles                  cm6y High     User Profile Application Proxy failed to retrieve partitions from User Profile Application: Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.UserProfileA
