Hi there,

I use the following for getting all contactfolders listed:


Works perfect but in case a shared contact list is displayed, I can't see the username fo the folder. Is there a way to lookup the user information via the EntryId of the folder?

Create user is creating aspxxxx.mdf database in my app_data folder


I had already setup roles for my pages and requirements call for ability to manage and create users.

So i was looking at code that allows you to do so using membership, even though i got the page to work, it was creating a database in my app_data folder.. i already have SQLExpress setup with the asp schema, but cant figure out how to get my application to use that instead of creating the db in the folder?

What am i missing or doing wrong?

I have the following setup in my web.config file..

		<authentication mode="Windows"/>
			<deny users="?"/>
        <add name="SqlMembershipProvider" type="System.Web.Security.SqlMembershipProvider, System.Web, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a"

Collecting extra information using Create User Wizard

 I am trying to collect extra information about a user when the user account is created using the Create User Wizard. This info will be stored in a new table in the standard ASP membership SQL database. I have read several books and loads of online tutorials on the subject and they all take different approaches and seem to make the process hard work. Is there any reason why I can't add an SQL datasource and a number of textboxes  to the wizard step, 'connect' the values from the textboxes to the Insert Parameters and then put an Insert Statement in a suitable event handler to cause the insert? If this is possible what would be the best (ie simplest) way to 'connect' the textboxes to the insert parameters?   Regards Andy

New SP 2010 Installation - Can't Get User Profiles / Outlook / My Site stuff working.

Hello,   I have a new SP 2010 Installation. I did NOT set it up in Standalone mode. My users can log in and create their own My Sites. They can edit them, add content, etc. When using Outlook 2010, they add one another in the People Pane. It shows up under My Site > My colleagues that they are connected. However, in Outlook, the MySite icon in the People Pane has a red X on it. I thought that User Profile Sync Service might be the culprit after reading through various blogs. However, if I go to Central Administration > Manage Profile Service : User Profile Service Application... if I click Configure Synchronization Connections, the page comes up - "The query returns nothing." I try to click "Create New Connection"... I get an error message - Cannot navigate to the requested page while User Profile Synchronization is running. Please wait for the current Synchronization to finish.   OK - I thought that the query returned no results. I don't see the service running... can someone point me in the right direction?

Create report that lists every user with permissions for each folder

I would like to have a report that will list each user with it's roles for every folder. We have a very large RS database with a lot of folders, we need some better way to keep track of permissions. I created a report that utilizes "GetPolicies" from http://localhost/reportserver/ReportService2005.asmx but I have to feed a folder name to get list of users. I can also (by using subreport) list all folders with users. However, I am not able to produce a report where I have it broken by user. any idea?

User information list properties SP Foundation 2010

When trying to view properties of user information list in SPD 2010, I get the following error "SharePoint designer cannot display the content of this view (...)" I am logged in as administrator for both farm and site. I can view content of the list in a browser, but I cannot access the list as a lookup column. It works with WSS 3/SPD 2007 on another server.

Explorer view losing folder path information

Hi all, I am writing a custom webpart to replace SP's default ListWebPart in my document library view page. But I found it can't keep the folder information when showing the "Explorer View". For example, I enter a subfolder "root/folder 1" and select "Explorer View" in  ViewToolbar, it returns the root folders content. But when I click the "Open in Windows Explorer" in ActionMenu, it returns contents of folder 1. I see the Sharepoint's ListViewWebpart does not have this problem. It can return correct contents when I enter a sub folder and click "Explorer View". The page's url contains correnct query strings about folder path (in my own webpart the query string is missing). Is it because I forget some config for the toolbar since I add it via codes? Below is my code to add the toolbar:   SPView view = this.CurrentView; if (view == null) return null; this._toolbar = new ViewToolBar(); this._toolbar.ID = this.ID + "_ViewToolBar"; this._toolbar.RenderContext = SPContext.Current; if (!String.IsNullOrEmpty(view.ToolbarTemplateName)) { this._toolbar.TemplateName = view.ToolbarTemplateName; } return this._toolbar;   Thanks a lot.  

Contacts created in Outlook put into 'Local Failures' folder

We have users with Outlook 2007 sync'd to a WSS 3.0 contact lists. New contacts created in WSS appear fine in Outlook. However if a user "Creates new contact from same company" (within outlook) or drag/drops contacts from outlook personal contacts to sharepoint list, the contact always gets put into the 'local failures' box. There have been posts about checking any contact website address is entered correctly, this is not the issue.  During outlook send/receive, these errors appear: Task 'SharePoint' reported error (0x81020014) : 'Failed to copy one or more items. For details, see the log file .' Task 'SharePoint' reported error (0x00000000) : 'OURCOMPANY Intranet - COMPANY Contacts - Failed to copy one or more items because some are not compatible with SharePoint. The failed items were moved to your Local Failures folder and replaced with copies from the server. If you need assistance troubleshooting items in your Local Failures folder, a Help topic is available at the following address: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=70300. For details, see the log file .' The microsoft link is dead, so no use. Can anyone help? - thanks  

What is the best way to store user specific information


Hello All,

What is the best way to keep track of user specific information?

I want to show information in querys etc based upon specific properties, for instance a users belongs to a dealer, and that dealer has an ID.

Getting user's credentials, who modified a folder



I have made a windows form application which uses a FileSystemWatcher control to watch after changes made in a specific folder.

Because I am talking about a shared folder in an organization, in case a change in a folder is made, I would like to know which user did it.

Is there any possibility to get user's username (the user that made a change in a folder)?

Update all Properties in the User Information List after restoring a site collection to a new domain


hi All

I moved a site collection (content db) from one domain to another. After the site collection was restored i ran the stsadm -o migrateuser -oldlogin -newlogin. The result was that the login id of the user in the source domain was replaced with the login in the destination domain.

However the rest of the properties in the User Information List (paricularly interested in the Email) was not updated.

How can i get all the properties in the User Information List with values in the new domain

Thanks in Advance


Regarding Editing the user profile Information in MOSS


Hi All,

            I have very interesting situation over here and unable to understand what is going on behind the scene. There are two senarios as follows

1) Production server that host the site restored from old WSS on the MOSS---- when i go to the Peoples and Group and click on the user name and then click on the edit profile I am presented with the from where i can edit the profile information but according to the theory this should not happen if MY Site is Enabled

2) Production server that host the fresh site on MOSS--- when i go to the Peoples and Group and click on the user name and then on the edit profile I am presented with the page that contains the domain name and user name means i cannot edit the profile as expected according to theory.

Both the server are two different WFE but has the same databse server. Please help me to solve this mistry.
