SharePoint 2010 - Seperate MySite collections.

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 31, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
We are currently looking into SharePoint 2010. The configuration will be in a farm setting with a couple front end servers etc. We will have the one main farm, but each department is then given thier own 'Portal' or 'Web Application'. This web application points to thier own SLQ DB on the shared SQL server. Some departments have expresse the possibility of using 'My Sites'. My question is, how can I configure each departments's my site to also use a different SQL DB. Currently I see only the ability to have one my site DB for the entire farm.   Thanks in advance.

Cannot crawl sharepoint site and mysite after database attach upgrade form sharepoint 2007 to 2010.

After database attach upgrade site and mysite from sharepoint 2007 to 2010 , I have full crawl and get "The crawler could not communicate with the server. Check that the server is available and that the firewall access is configured correctly. If the repository was temporarily unavailable, an incremental crawl will fix this error. ( Error from SharePoint site: HttpStatusCode ServiceUnavailable The request failed with HTTP status 503: Service Unavailable. )" for mysite and get "Access is denied. Verify that either the Default Content Access Account has access to this repository, or add a crawl rule to crawl this repository. If the repository being crawled is a SharePoint repository, verify that the account you are using has "Full Read" permissions on the SharePoint Web Application being crawled." for sharepoint site. The content access account for search is "db_owner" of both of site and mysite. How do I solved this problem ?

Do you need to license Office Web Apps seperate from sharepoint server 2010 enterprise license?

Hi All, I been reading this article http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff431687.aspx#bkmk_ins_exis_farm  and have come to the conculsion that if you want word viewing services and power point services you need to license and download office web apps separate from the SharePoint Licensing/download. Can anyone confirm this that may know more about the subject? I thought those services would come along with enterprise but from what I’m reading I guess not.   Regards, Jeff

Mysite SharePoint 2010: Displayname shows domainname/username?


Hi !

I setting up MySite on SharePoint 2010 for my organization. MySite is our first priority to get up and going. Everything is installed and working.

- SharePoint installed
- Active Directory is synced

When I browse around for users in the search bar, everything looks fine. I can use the organization chart to browse up and down, and their names is all correct. 

Problem is: 
When a user connects to MySite for the first time, the MySite is obviously created and the user can start to add content and so on.
But - After the user logged in for the first time, his Displayname (property collected from AD) shows as "domainname/username" 

After we tried and tested a couple of users and they logged in, the organization chart is falling apart, and the displaynames are all changed to domainname/username. 


Anyone know what causes this?

SharePoint 2010 - Photo Displays in MySite - Photo Doesn't Display in Contact List


MySite is up and running fine.  I am adding photos through Central Administration > Manage User Profiles.  All photos are syncing and showing up in contact lists whenever someone is added to a "Person or Group" Name (with picture) column. 

I recently added someone, uploaded their photo.  It syncs fine with AD, can see it in the thumbnailPhoto attribute for this user.  I looked in the UserProfile_Full.PictureURL column in the Profile DB.  It is there as well (http://sharepoint:80/my/User Photos/Profile Pictures/DOMAIN_USERNAME_MThumb.jpg).  The photo refuses to display in the contact list. 

This is only happening for one user.  Any ideas?
