Intranet... intranet?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 24, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I'm completely new to SharePoint.  I have some experience with it "out-of-the-box", but that's about it.  I've been asked to upgrade the existing intranet site (SharePoint 2003) with SharePoint 2007.  I am first focusing on the IT division as they want to be first.  Our intranet is organized by departments, and it looks like this: Department > Division > Unit.  IT is a Division, so I've been thinking that employees in other divisions will be accessing our divisional site for help.  IT will want a dedicated "section" of this site for themselves only, which makes sense.  I can't seem to find how I'd go about doing this?  A simple sub-site?  If so, is there some srt of best practices around this type of approach?  So the view that non-divisional employees would see would include a project summary, knowledge base help, etc.  The IT divisional section would have much more details on the projects, IT specfic calendar, etc.  Any direction would be greatly appreciated.  Sorry for the extremely novice questions.  :)

Intranet Users Challenged When Using Windows Integrated Security


We've setup an intranet site using Windows Integrated Security. Its up and running and users can access it. However, they are being challenged with a login dialog for the server when they initially access the site.

Isn't is possible to configure the server so that the users aren't challenged AND are recognized as being already authenticated by Windows? We're trying to go with a seamless experience, whereby all they have to do is login to their machine like normal and then go from there.

SharePoint: SharePoint Portal Server Makes Your Intranet More Manageable and Easier to Navigate


Most large organizations have mounds of disjointed information in a variety of formats spread out across an enterprise. To make the most efficient use of that information, it must be readily accessible, easy to identify, and simple to navigate. SharePoint Portal Server 2001 unifies information by allowing members of any organization to create, share, and publish documents from a single access point. This article covers the services in SPS that can help an organization improve workflow and information management.

Build an Easy Maintenance Intranet Site: Using Office Docs, File System Object, and OLE Structured S


If you've ever needed to build an easy-to-maintain intranet site, here's a solution based on Microsoft Office documents. Many sites require constant updating of their HTML, but the use of Word documents can simplify the process. This article details the construction of a human resources site that exploits the File System Object (FSO), OLE Structured Storage, and ActiveX capabilities of Word documents. This allows the HR staff to copy their revised or newly created Word files to the site, dynamically generate a list of links to their files, and free IS from the constant recoding of HR updates into new HTML pages.

Trying to launch a .exe file on my local computer from intranet site.


I have been told I can launch a local program on my PC from my intranet site but it has to be done with Active X or vbscript and not javascript.  I found the following little sample html code that will launch notepad.  However, I cannot figure out how to put this in a button, etc., within my aspx or code behind to execute it.  Does anybody have any idea how to do this?  I have a lot of javascript code I am launching urls with and I have even tried using that but again, I have been told that to do it client side it needs to be vbscript or something like this.  Any ideas?

How to design centralized document management solution for Intranet

Our need: -SharePoint Server 2010 based Intranet with the document management solution.(about 200-300 documents) -All documents are centralized to one place -Managed metadata are added to every document. Metadata are used to search as well. -Folders are needed because of user permissions. Not everybody can open all documents. -Automatic item copy process to desired target place are desired to help end-user My design I planned this way, but did not work in practise. I created 1 centralized document library with several folders based on category. I user Content query webpart to display documents in other sites. This works fine. I wanted to automatic process to move added documents based on metadata. Example: When document include managed metadata "personnel" or "HR", the document is move to the folder named "Personnel". I made 2 different tests, but neither of them filled all requirements: 1. Using Content organizer, I was not able to make conditions based on metadata, but was able to move documents to the folders. 2. Using Workflow, I was able to make conditions based on metadata, but not able to move documents to the folders.   I failed to use metadata to move items to the Folder. Do you have any idea to me? I'm open to any ideas.Kenny_I

How to access server/share resources from an internal/intranet Web Part?

We are a team of native-client/webforms developers who have been tasked with developing an internal intranet SharePoint system for our team. We want a WebPart that displays sets of files on internal shares, allows selection of subset(s), and then downloads the files to the local machine. Basically it's a builds/test-artifacts/documents "getter" scenario. We created less elaborate web sites that do somethihng like this (as proof of concept.) However, no matter what we do with our WebPart, it will not allow access to non-local(host) shares, files, etc. The WebPart CAN access said shares/files when the entire thing - client (IE session) and debug[ger/gee] etc - are run on a single dev box. However, when we attempt to run the client on a different machine accessing the dev box (in a server role), the code cannot access the network resources (for example, File.Exists() and Directory.Exists() fail.) How can we make this work?

SharePoint AAM - Help - Publish Sharepoint with UAG to Internet and Intranet with Similar Url

I am trying to Publish Sharepoint with UAG to Internet and the desired url is https://abc.contoso.com and the internal people want to access with http://abc.contoso.com. I have my AAM in Sharepoint similar to this, which i read from Sharepoint UAG msdn documentation. The Internet people access the site using https to reach UAG which inturn request http to Sharepoint server. with the above AAM setup, the internal people will not be able to access the site using http://abc.contoso.com as there is no AAM mapping for it. i am not able to add AAM mapping as it says internal URL already in the collection. Can you please help how to make this setup , thanks Joe

Alternate Access mapping - Intranet site

Hi All, I'm banging my head against a brick wall here trying to setup an alternate access mapping for an intranet site in SharePoint 2007. I have a default site setup which has the following public default URL: http://SERVERNAME:2586 I want users to access the site using the URL http://Intranet Now from reading about alternate access mappings I thought this should be as simple as adding an internal url of http://intranet under the intranet zone. With this set up I preceded to add the binding to the IIS website. I added the binding with All Assigned IP addresses, port 2586, and host as Intranet. The final thing I did to check this was to add an entry to the hosts file for the server IP address with the host name of intranet. This was followed by a flush of the DNS cache on the server. Whgen trying to access the site using the URL i now get the IIS7 welcome page, but not the SharePoint site I expected. Can anyone point me in the direction of what i've done wrong, Its got me stumped. Cheers, Grant

SharePoint questions with regards to Intranet and Extranet configurations

Hello, I am new to SharePoint configurations and am currently looking at implementing it for our Intranet and then later on down the line, maybe 1-2 years, making it also an Extranet for our clients.  I have a few questions to ask regarding this. 1.  Can a SharePoint Intranet and Extranet run on the same server? 2.  If so, what are the security risks to having the server exposed to the internet as well as the internal network, what are the solutions? 3.  If I use the free version of SharePoint 2010 (Foundation) What are the costs for Intranet client access licenses? and Extranet client access licenses? 4.  Can the SharePoint application run on a separate server from the database? Any help with these questions is greatly appreciated as well as any additional concerns I should have for this implementation. Thanks, Mike

Web parts function in intranet but not extranet

I have a sharepoint site that works perfectly from the inside. Every web part does exactly what it's supposed to do. Recently, I extended it to an extranet that uses https.  If I connect to the https site from inside my network, everything still works, even though all the links and paths change to reflect the different zone.  If I connect from my home computer, I am still able to connect, but none of my performancepoint reports or scorecards show up, and my external list just keeps spinning the green progress ball thing indefinitely.  I would imagine this is a permissions issue. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Is there a way to track web traffic for an intranet site?

Hello - I have built my intranet using MS Visual Web Developer Express 2008. There are several secured areas and my manager asked me to find out if tracking the traffic is possible. Things that I would need to track include: Which unique user ID's logged in and when? How many times did the same user login? Last login What info was accessed? What page(s) had the most hits? Would I need a database for tracking purposes? Would this info be available with a "dashboard" interface? Thanks,Kirsten
