Migrating users between domains having two way trust

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#
I have two domains, they have two way trust. I have migrated user to primary domain(A) from other domain(B). When i try to login to sharepoint 2007 as B|user, SharePoint is automatically treating it as A\user. I am using HttpContext.Current.User.Identity.Name property to get the loggedin user name. Is their anyway to avoid this behaviour?

Migrating existing cleat text users password to hashed password Membership Provider

Hello all ,I had been trying to solve this but there is a hidden key i wish someone point me to.I had a simple membership database with users in first the Membership  Provider configured for clear passwordto retrieve the original password .Now a new requirement say that the password must be hashed and reset .I configure the Membership password to hash , and Implemented the Reset Password Module.My problem is as follow.If the user is new registered user with the new configuration the password and the security answer is hashed.also when I go and reset the password it continue to be hashed.Now I thought that with new configuration if any previous user with clear text configuration , If he use the password Reset module , because my configuration now is hashed , I expected that the new password  and security answer will be hashed  . what happen is old user continue in clear text even if the configuration is hashed.so If I had new users everything is fine.old users Membership Provider somehow know they had been stored in clear text and it keep change password and security answer in clear text .If I delete this user and create it , Membership Provider understand that everything will be hashed.I need to know how it know this , I need to migrate users not to delete and recreate users .If there is a solution for that kindly expl

Migrating SQL Server 2005 databases, including SQL Agent jobs and SQL users



I should begin to migrate all my data from a SQL Server 2005 (x86) SP3 to another server with SQL 2005 (x64) SP3 installed. About moving the Databases, I think that detach and attach them won't create unexpected problems.

The problems that scare me are:

  1. Migrate the SQL Agent processes. I've created so complex jobs that I'd rather swim across an ocean than rewrite them.
  2. Migrate Users. There are near 70 users with integrated security and each has different mappings to the 40 DBs. Unfortunately there's no domain, so I don't know whether it's possible to copy them without changing their GUIDs.

Does anybody know if my goal is within reach?

Can someone tell me which step to make (and in what order)?

Thank you very much.

MS SQL Server: Disconnect Users From Database - Kill User Session

Enabling Users to Maintain SharePoint Content

When SharePoint is installed as a corporate intranet, there is a considerable amount of effort involved in maintaining the content to keep the site relevant. As we discussed in the first few parts of this series, SharePoint has many built-in features to reduce the burden on the site administrator.

Some areas of the site usually contain less-dynamic information. Internal memos and corporate policies are common examples of this information. One option for this information is to post these documents in a document library. Documents in a library are often stored in a few different formats: Word, Acrobat (PDF), or HTML. Each of these formats has its drawbacks.

SharePoint document migration challenges when migrating files and folders

Need help redirecting users to personalized page


 Hi, first timer here so be gentle.


I've been able to create a cool little website, it's up and running with users logging in and out, I created roles so my administrative team can see sensitive data that's not available to regular and anonymous users.

Now they would like me to create a page specific to each user.  For instance when user A logs in they are redirected to a page that has information that pertains to user A only (like a list of their benefits/ their remaining vacation time). This page needs to be accessible only to user A. 

I've watched a ton of the videos but have yet to see one that covers this topic, any help would be great!!!





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.

Users getting logged out because HttpContext.Current is null


We've  been trying to fix this one for a couple years, and I'm just out of ideas, so any help is really appreciated!

We've got a fairly large, complex web application that uses Forms Authentication to authenticate users.  Throughout the application we store and retrieve information about users in the Session object, and in some cases in cookies.  In a couple places we check for the existence of the context, and if it's null we send the user back to the login page to re-establish the session. 

Just a quick run-down of this web app: C#, .NET 3.5, IIS 6, ASP.NET State Service to manage session

As for the session timer, we use our own home-grown timer, which is basically a client-side timer, which is backed up by a check to the SQL database to see when their last activity was.  This seems to work well for us.  It's not perfect, but it allows us to notify the user before the session times out, and allows us to be certain we're not logging a user out before their 60 minutes of inactivity is up.

What's happening is that certain users are being logged out after just a few minutes.  We've eliminated the timer as a cause and believe what's happening is the HttpContext.Current is null, so the user is logged out.  We do not know why the HttpContext.Current is null, and I underst

Use Membership but bypass / disable password usage for users


I have an application that does LDAP authentication. The authentication is done on the code behind page of my Login.aspx page. Once the user passes LDAP authentication, a cookie is set and I redirect:

FormsAuthentication.RedirectFromLoginPage(UserName.Text, False)

I would like to setup membership in my application and keep track of some user information. But due to company security requirements, I cannot store user passwords on my application. That must stay on the LDAP server only.

Is there a way to store users but disable password storage on the aspnet_membership table?

Migrating ASP to ASPX.... where to set 301 redirects


Hello, I'm updating around 15 pages from .asp to .aspx (.net 2.0)

My question is, do I have to put a header redirect 301 (permanent redirect) on each old file, or can I put it in global.asax file with a case checking for any of the 15 files?

I some tries to go to old.asp will it execute global.asax anyway?

What would the best aproach be?

List Users from Active Directory


When i try to List the users from Active directory, i get this exception.

Error while processing.System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException (0x80072020): An operations error occurred at System.DirectoryServices.DirectoryEntry.Bind(Boolean throwIfFail) at System.DirectoryServices.DirectoryEntry.Bind() at System.DirectoryServices.DirectoryEntry.get_AdsObject() at System.DirectoryServices.DirectorySearcher.FindAll(Boolean findMoreThanOne) at System.DirectoryServices.DirectorySearcher.FindAll()

The code i used is :

DirectoryEntry de = new DirectoryEntry(_path);DirectorySearcher deSearch = new DirectorySearcher();

deSearch.SearchRoot =de;

deSearch.Filter = "(&(objectClass=user) (cn=" + UserName +"))";

SearchResultCollection results = deSearch.FindAll();

 But the DirectoyEntry method is getting validated if i use the overloaded method : DirectoryEntry(_path, domainAndUsername, password);

Please advice me.
