There has been an error creating the personal site. User cannot be found

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#
 

Few of my Domain Users are able to create MySite and few of them are not, though they are having same permission.

There has been an error creating the personal site. Contact your site administrator for more information.

Event Viewer is showing :

My Site creation failure for user 'DOMAIN\username' for site url 'http://10.31.2.9:46744/personal/username'. The exception was: Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.PersonalSiteCreateException: A failure was encountered while attempting to create the site. ---> Microsoft.SharePoint.SPException: User cannot be found.

Below are the DLL versions of my installation. 

Microsoft.SharePoint.Portal.dll : 12.0.6420.1000

"User cannot be found" error when creating My Site after upgrading to SP2 for MOSS 2007

  

Hi

Hope this is the place for sharepoint gurus?

I upgraded MOSS2007/WSS3 to SP2 and since then I have been unable to get My Site to create new sites for existing domain users.

Some of the domain users created their My Site before the SP2 upgrade and they still work. We just cannot create new My Sites for existing domain users.

Now when we try to create a My Site we get this error:

"There has been an error creating the personal site. Contact your site administrator for more information."

I checked the event logs and usually no error is recorded when this happens so sharepoint does not even give me a breadcrumb (thanks!).

However, on one occassion I did get an event message after fiddling here and there and many attempts at trying to create a My Site, hooray! See below for all the glorious details of the event message, but the basic error is:

"User cannot be found".

I have checked the My Site settings of shared services (SSP1), veiwed user profiles, all the domain users are imported. So I have no idea why when creating a My Site it fails?

I have searched many forums and although they get the same error it seems to be for different reasons so the solutions don't help my situation.

Is there somewhere in Sharepoint that these domain users need to exist? Would I be able to c

Hi.

I have a MOSS 2007 installation patched up to Cumulative Patch December, but are experiencing some issues with MySite.

When users access MySite, they recieve this errormessage in their browser: There has been an error creating the personal site. Contact your site administrator for more information.

This is followed up with this logged event on the server:

Hi All,

I feel like starting with the usual line - "please contact your site administrator" - I am the site administrator. Sharepoint 2010 Ent, getting this message when I click on the "MyContent" link in the MySite area, am aware that this is when the users my site is getting created. This has never worked, this is a new production build, the "My News Feed" & "My Profile" are working but the MySite "MyContent" link returns the above message. I have  included two windows log files below. Appreciate any help in advance.

Error creating MySite: There has been an error creating the personal site

  

Hi,

When creating a MySite users get this error message:

There has been an error creating the personal site. Contact your site administrator for more information.

Here is our setup:

  • 1 web application for central administration
  • 1 web application for ssp administration site
  • 1 web application at port 80 (collaboration portal)
    • this web app uses (and requires) SSL
    • managed path: "mysite" (explicit inclusion)
    • managed path: "personal"(wildcard inclusion)
    • site collection based on the MySite Host on the "mysite" managed path
  • SSP: personal site provider: https://[portalurl]:443/mysite/
  • SSP: personal site location: "personal"

Initially we hosted the the MySites in a separate web application, but we migrated them to this new setup. The users who had a mysite before the migration have no issue, they can get to their mysite just fine.

If I look in the SharePoint logs I find this error message: "Value does not fall within the expected range"

Any ideas what we are doing wrong?

Here's an extract of the logfile:

Programmatically creating a SharePoint Site based on user input

  

I am working on developing a “Create Website Wizard” for SharePoint 2007 that would do the following (I am simplifying a little for the sake of this post):

 

1.      Take user input as follows:

Title:

Product Code:

Category (I, II, III):

The category will be a choice field (radio buttons or a dropdown)

C# - Creating web client for automating user activity on a HTTPS site

  
I've been wracking my brain for a couple of weeks on this.  I need to create a web client (I don't want to use the webBrowser control because I need this to be as lightweight as possible) to log in to a secure web site, and then effectively click links and fill in fields to get the data that would normally be displayed in the web browser.  I'm then going to parse the data and perform other actions with it. I have been working with HttpWebRequest and HttpWebResponse and many permutations of suggestions I have found while Googling my issue, but I can't get rid of my problem:  Sometimes when I effictively click the ultimate link that I need to click to get to my data, I get what I am looking for.  However, MOST of the timel, I get a response page that tells me my connection timed out and that I need to log in again.  I have tried messing with cookies and such, but to no avail. I know it's good form to post my code, but it is so sloppy and screwed up right now from tweaking this and trying that, that I'd rather not take the approach of fixing what's there, rather I'd like to start with solid, clean code to begin with. Your help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, ALo

Creating and sharing new sharepoint site to internet, limiting user access

  
I am a new hire into an existing business as I.T. I know the networking, I know the computers. The owner now wants me to learn Sharepoint among some other things. They currently use WSS 3.0. I have been reading up on this for the last month. I think I am ready to extend the current site to make it an Internet site so the employees can login. Some other things we would like to do I have read up on and it looks like they can be done, things such as inventory tracking in collaboration with QuickBooks and creating a website / portal for clients to have a unique login on and can see the status of their jobs in custom SharePoint lists. As far as I can tell the clients need an AD account. However, apart from that I am not sure what to do. A little background.  The company has multiple clients, and we ship things out daily to those clients.  We use Sharepoint to track the status of the jobs as they progress through the stages ultimately going to delivery. There is one common page that lists all the jobs by all clients that is updated constantly. We would like to allow multiple (different) clients/logins and have a page customized for each client.  For example, you are a client and go to www.companyname.com/sharepointsite.html.  From there you would get to a portal page with a login. Once logged in you will be presented with the Shar

Duplicate field name error, creating new site from custom template

  
I've made a site that maps the site (with a table of contents) and i export it to another site collection. I'm able to install and activate the solution in the other site collection, however when i'm going to create a new site using the site i've installed as a template it pops an error saying "A duplicate field name Wiki_x0020_Page_x0020_CategoriesTaxHTField" was found." I have no clue what this means. Can anyone help me? Thanks in advance

SQL 2005: Error 15401 - Windows NT user or **group** not found

  
Hello,

I have a fresh install of Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 Standard Edition and SQL Server 2005 x64 on top of that, with Service Pack 3. This server, SERV, is in DOMAINA which trusts (one-way) DOMAINB.

When I try to create a login for a group in my domain, I get the following error:
Msg 15401, Level 11, State 1, Procedure sp_grantlogin, Line 49
Windows NT user or group 'DOMAINA\groupname' not found. Check the name again.

I get the same error whether using "create login [domaina\groupname] from widnows", "sp_grantlogin [domaina\groupname]" or Manangement Studio.
This happens ONLY for groups , both in DOMAINA and DOMAINB domains. I can add individual users from both A and B and local computer. For local computer groups: I can add default Windows groups (like Users, Guests, Event Log Readers) by [BUILTIN\Event Log Readers], etc. but not by SERV\Event Log Readers; for custom created group MyLocal it's the other way around: I can via SERV\MyLocal but not via BUILTIN\MyLocal.

If I add a domain group from either DOMAINA or DOMAINB to a local group, whether my own or builtin, I can login to SQL Server remotely using creditentials of a user who belongs to that group (user DOMAINB\ux belongs to DOMAINB\group and DOMAINB\group to SERV\MyLocal). After sp_grantlogin [serv\mylocal] of cours
