Errors when interacting with WorkFlow generated tasks through ISA Server

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

I have a MOSs environment that I have published through ISA Server 2006 and i am getting really strange behavior whentrying to interact with WorkLFow generated tasks when I have connected through ISA. This also seems to affect InfoPath Forms Services. I was wondering if anyone out there is seeing any problems when using ISA Server to interact wih Forms or WorkFlows?


The error I get simply states:

the form cannot be submitted to the web server either because your computer is offline or because the host server is currently unavailable.


Any help would be appreciated.

Is it possible to prevent a user from seeing the tasks generated by the workflow he starts?


Hi All,

When a user starts a workflow, there will be tasks generated in a task list. Is it possible to prevent this user from visiting the task list? I remove the user's permission from that task list and the user can not see the it at first. But when he starts the workflow, the task list becomes availble to the user.

I checked the permission setting of that task list and found a note saying "Some items of this list may have unique permissions which are not controlled from this page". That's why these tasks become available to the user.

The reason for what I'm trying to do is that I don't want the users to know what's going on in detail. The workflow will send the user a email when there is any outcome.

Is it possible to do that? Thanks!

net.tcp://localhost:80/MyService client/server errors while IIS is running - even though all Net.TCP

Hello, I am trying to create a simple WCF client/server solution in two Windows Forms projects, respectively.  I am using net.tcp binding on port 80 and have enabled the port sharing property.  My NET.TCP Port Sharing service is running.  I am using Windows 7 x64 and logged in as an administrator.  I've added my username to the smvchost configuration files, in both Framework and Framework 64 directories. I also have IIS running on port 80. However, there seems to be a conflict between net.tcp on port 80 and IIS on port 80 simultaneously.  My understanding was that the Net.TCP Port Sharing is supposed to be the solution for this very scenario. Here are the specific issues: 1.  I start the server in debug mode, which works fine.  I then try to connect with the client, and get the error: "You have tried to create a channel to a service that does not support .Net Framing.  It is possible that you are encountering an HTTP endpoint".  This seems to imply that the NET.TCP Port Sharing is not forwarding the request to my WCF server, and instead is encountering IIS.  This is the first problem. 2.  The second issue is that the Server starts fine in Visual Studio in debug mode, however when I try to run it as a compiled EXE (and right-click - run as admin) it errors "The TransportMana

SharePoint Server 2010 Search - not returning results but crawling without errors

I have created a Search Service Application on a SharePoint Server 2010 (RTM) Farm and used the default Content Source. I started a Full Crawl and it suceeded with no errors etc. I ran it a few times and no issues. But if I go to the Intranet Portal Web Appliaction and do a search for a document that would have been crawled it does not show up in search results...nothing does. I am not getting any errors in Event Log or ULS Logs relevant to Search. How can I troubleshoot this problem further?SharePoint Solution Architect, Perth Australia - Microsoft Virtual Technology Specialist - MCTS WSS Dev, WSS Adm, MOSS Dev, MOSS Adm - http://wss.made4the.net/ - Founder of http://www.sharepointdevwiki.com/

unable to load workflow actions from the server.

When I try to create a workflow in SPD for my teamsite (for which I have full control) I get the above error message. I have read many posts on this topic but am not conviced that what I usually see about the actions not loading applies to my case beacusewe have a developer logging in remotely that is able to create a workflow in the same site using SPD.  I have .net 3.5 framework, I have full control permissions, and the wss.actions file is not bad in that it is obviously loading for the remote developer, what else could be causing this error? I find no error messages in the SharePoint logs nor the application logs although the sharepoint logs are throttled back.

Workflow tasks viewable by most, but not all task owners.

I have a simple SharePoint Designer workflow that starts when a new list item is created.  The task owner is defined by a 'user/group' field selected from a sharepoint list.  Of 150+ users, only 4 are not able to see the tasks when assigned.  I have the task list set so they only see their own.  These 4 users do not see any tasks, where as everyone else does see only their own tasks.  To test, I changed the list settings to show all.  The users saw all tasks, but are not able to edit the tasks assigned to them. I feel the problem lies with how the workflow is assigning ownership of the task.  When I use the sharepoint task list to manually create a task for these 4 users, they can see and edit them, but when the workflow creates the task - they can't. Is there something special about how workflows assign task ownership based off Active Directory versus manually assigning tasks coming from the cached SharePoint profile?  (As a test I deleted the user from the All People list of the site, and manually added them back - no luck).Greg Appelt

Permission Errors for Users on Home Page only of SQL Server Reporting Services Report Manager

I have spent days now investigating this problem, so any help very much appreciated! I have a remote web server 2003 running SQL Server R2 Express Edition with Reporting Services installed. I use Report Builder 3.0 locally to build report. If I login via Internet to Report Manager Web Page as an administrator I can perform all the expected and required actions, creating new folders and assigning permissions for users etc. I have added a new user "ReportUser" as a Browser of a child folder. If ReportUser longs on to home page, he receives the all too familiar error: User 'XXXXXXXX\reportuser' does not have required permissions. Verify that sufficient permissions have been granted and Windows User Account Control (UAC) restrictions have been addressed. However, if the user starts at the child folder of home page, and then logs in, he sees the expected page, and can run the report!  This is not very satisfactory. How can I allow user to see home page, without an error message, but not be allowed to click on any folders to which he is not entitled? I am now aware that SQL Server R2 Express Edition has many limitations compared with full Editions (fixed roles, cannot manage Report Service from Management Studio etc) , and many of the "solutions" offered on the web just do not apply.   John Walton

Data Driven Subscription problem - sub runs slowly, has 40 errors out of 300, but report server trac

I have two report servers and a single separate SQL Server 2008 server hosting the data source database and the report server catalogues. There is a data driven subscription that runs off a sproc that returns 300 rows with email addresses for this report to be emailed to. The report itself contains around 30 subreports each with its own sproc to retrieve data. As the report is executing there are long pauses between the times when emails are actually sent out, and the subscription status will finally end with something like "Done: 300 processed of 300 total; 40 errors." I am not sure how to go about troubleshooting this problem. Details: I kicked it off at (say) 2:00 PM. Within 3 minutes in the report server execution log I saw 300 entries. There were exactly 300 people who should receive reports, so the master report should have executed 300 times and sent out 300 emails. So this looked good in the execution log. But when I checked report manager's status page for the subscription it was listed as processing 50 out of 300... Then all activity stopped, about 15 minutes some more reports started emailing out, and now I see there are around 590 rows in the execution log and maybe 97 emails sent out... Then finally I get a grand total of 846 rows in the execution log and a grand total of 260 of 300 emails sent out with 40 errors so 260+40=300 exactly. The time betw

Workflow AND/OR Tasks - how can I create one that occurs/recurrs on a weekly basis.

Hi All, Any ideas how I could configure SharePoint 2010 to trigger a workflow for a site member that notifies them to perform  a specific task ? I have a timesheet template that I intend to create a content type from. the use case is that each site member needs to fill out a timesheet at the start of the week to indicate what work they will be doing for the week. Is it possible ( using customisation ) to create a workflow so that a site member is prompted to create a new timesheet at the start of everyweek ? Alternatively can a recurrent task be created instead ? i.e. on the monday of every week create a new task for each site member to "create new weekly timesheet" Thanks and regards, Counie
