Changing AD domain name and keep SharePoint 2010 settings

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


I currently have a single server with SharePoint  which is inside the aaa.org domain. Due to business requirements they need to change the domain to bbb.org. The main problem that I have is that I need to replace the aaa.org domain which is basically stop it completely and start the bbb.org domain and migrate all users to this domain.

All the settings in SharePoint when installing it, I used users from the aaa.org domain can I change this before the bbb.org domain goes live? What would be the easiest way to "migrate" the users in SharePoint to point to the new domain? 

Thank you very much. I don't have too much experience with SharePoint and I need to have a better idea on it before I change anything else.

SharePoint 2010 Site Actions Site Settings Error

I can not seem to go to Site Settings for a sub site in SharePoint 2010.  I installed SharePoint 2010 developer version on my laptop (Win 7 64bit) with Visual Studio 2010.  Try to create a sub site and go to Site Settings and bam!!! Error File Not Found.  This is frustrating.  Very frustrating.  I found so many problem with SharePoint 2010 and get no where with this version upgrade.  My life is completely ____ now.  Thanks Microsoft!  Why! Why! and Why do you not test your software and make people life much more convenience.  Why roll out this crapy software now on MSDN instead of making it clear that it is not ready??????????  WHY!!!!!! Yes, and I try to go to Site Settings from within SharePoint 2010 Designer.  It took me to the same error!!!!!  So what is going on?

Sharepoint 2010 Web Server/Domain Controller ratio

Is this number the same 3:1 as it was in with Sharepoint 2007?

Logon to SharePoint 2010 requires \. Why?

We've installed a fairly large number of small SharePoint 2007 environments. All of these have had their own Active Directory, specified to <domainname>.local. These have been accessible from Internet, and have simply had a external DNS pointingwww.<domain>.com to the server.  In these SharePoint 2007 environments we've used Windows Authentication, and logging on has simply been a procedure of specifying username and password. It has worked just fine. However, in our first SharePoint 2010 environment, we're encountering odd problems. We use here NTLM authentication, and  domain name is <domain>.local. The domain name used in Internet iswww.<domain>.com, which points to the SharePoint 2010 environments frontend server. We'd like to login to the SharePoint environment with simple <username> and password, but it fails. We have to explicitely specify <domain>\<username> and then password to login. Why doesn't this work, and is there any relatively easy way to fix this without disturbing the environment? From logon attempts using simply username, these events appear in the Security event log: Log Name: Security Source: Microsoft-Windows-Security-Auditing Date: 7.5.2010 13:15:01 Event ID: 4625 Task Category: Logon Level: Information Keywords: Audit Failure User: N/A Computer: <COMPUTER>.<

Windows Sharepoint Foundation 2010 - Document Library Settings with Reporting Services 2008 R2 in in

I have a client who has recently upgraded their SharePoint system to Windows Sharepoint Foundation 2010 with Reporting Services 2008 R2 in integrated mode. I have configured reporting services and am able to deploy reports to SharePoint. The client created a document library before the upgrade to WSF 2010. I need to add Report Builder 3.0 to the New Document menu and found the following article. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb326289.aspx "Allow management of content types?" is set to yes under the advanced document library settings. The problem is that when I try to "add from existing site content types" the reporting services content types are not in the list. I appreciate any help you can give me.

What Domain Account should be used for C2WTS in SharePoint 2010?


I have installed a brand new farm, Sharepoint 2010 Standard on Windows 2008 R2.  I've configured Kerberos for SQL and SharePoint (verified that Kerberos is working with SQL and SharePoint Central Administration).  This is the start of our company's SharePoint experience (full-blown anyways, I've used WSS 2.0 and played with 3.0 in the past).

The TechNet documentation suggests that if this is a new SharePoint farm, to use Claims-Based Authentication from the start on Web Applications.  It's also suggested to use a domain account to run the C2WTS service.

My question is what domain account should be used for the C2WTS service?  I've already got many service accounts for different parts of SharePoint, and I wasn't sure if the C2WTS needed a special account as well, since there needs to be SPNs set on it.  Can I just use an existing account, and make sure the delegations are set right, or do I need to create a new account for just the C2WTS service?

Backup SharePoint 2010 farm configuration settings only get an error for not enough disk space when



I am trying to do a backup the Backup using the Backup and Restore feature in SharePoint 2010 Central Administration.  I just want to backup only the farm configuration settings only.

so I followed the GUI 

Open CA Backup and Restore, checked the Farm checkbox,  click Next 

I chose the following:

Backup Type :  Full

Data to backup:  Back up only configuration settings

Backup File location  :   use an UNC shared location   \\servername\sharedname

at this point,  I see the Estimated disk space required is:   1.2 GB 

the server hard disk available space is  30 GB

but when i click the Start Backup,  i got an error in RED saying "There is not enough disk space. Free additional space on your hard disk and then try again. Approximate amount of space needed is 40 GB.   Amount of space free on disk:  30 GB."

Why is this happened?  and the estimated disk spaced required still showed at 1.2GB

If anyone had experience this problem and have a solution, please advice









Moving sharepoint 2010 to a new domain


I have a sharepoint 2010 multi server environment (2 wfe, 1 app server, 1 DB, 1 FAST server) that I need to move to another AD domain.

The OldDomain is our Internal network, while the NewDomain is for external access. The NewDomain does trust the OldDomain.

I currently have all the services and web app pools running as accounts in OldDomain and would like them to stay that way. There is a one-way trust between the domains (NewDomain trusts OldDomain)

The only users currently setup are in OldDomain and should also remain, but we will be adding users from NewDomain.

  • Can I simply change the domain member ship of the machines and expect it to work?
  • Should I remove each server from the farm one by one then change the domain and re-add it to the farm?
  • Can/should SharePoint servers be in different domains, IE if I move the web front ends to allow people form the Newdomain to access the sites, can/should I leave the app and fast servers in the old domain?

The main thing that I cannot do is build a new farm and migrate sites, I don't have the time or the hardware.

Thank you

SharePoint 2010 Service Application Proxy & My Site Settings


I have a SharePoint 2010 Site Configured with Claims based FBA. I have also made My Site work with FBA.

My question is:

In 2007 I would create a seperate SSP for FBA based my site and Set all configuration there. As SharePoint 2010 supports Service Application Proxy how can I isolate FBA based My site and Other AD sites.

While I was able to select the required services for my Site using Configure service application associations link in Central admin, all changes I make in My Site Settings reflect for both FBA & AD based application.

How do I isolate My Site changes ?? I wanted to have different configuration for each of the My Sites

Change domain AD + upgrade Sharepoint 2007->2010 = window with a request login/password


New installation of Sharepoint 2010 in Domain_A domain. I added a content database WSS_content2007 from Sharepoint 2007 (from domain Domain_B). I didn't run the command stsadm -migrateuser. New accounts from domain Domain_A were manually added to SharePoint 2010. In table Userinfo on WSS_Content2007 on Sharepoint 2010 are accounts from both domains. Old domain Domain_B was deleted.
Users get a window with a request re-enter your username and password from time to time.
What should I do? Can I delete the account from the domain Domain_B with stsadm command? Should the column tp_title contain unique records for the same user and the same site?


Language settings messed up in SharePoint 2010


In the last couple of days I've tried to refactor my code to be able to support multiple languages. Somehow I messed up my solution and still can't figure out the reason since the problem now appears seperately from my solution. Ok without anymore excuses here we go:

I've got an english SP2010 Server with a german language pack installed. If I create a new blank sitecollection (STS#1) with default language german (language code 1031) and open the url in my browser everything shows up in english (language code 1033). However if I navigate to "Libraries" afterwards everything switches back to german. So I only got english language on the RootWeb of my sitecoleection (at a point where I've only created a blank sitecollection without deploying any piece of code at all).

At Site settings -> language settings german is set to be the default language and english is not activated at all. I can't tell when this behaviour started, but if I would have to guess, I would say it started when I tried to activate alternate languages by code.
