User Profiles Service Application and Import of SharePoint 2007 SSP data

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 31, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I have setup a test SharePoint 2010 Farm. I will be using this as a test upgrade of a current live SharePoint 2007 Farm. The database attach method will be used. I have replicated the web application and AAM settings of the SharePoint 2007 Farm to the SharePoint 2010 Farm and have made the 2010 Farm a DC in a new Forest. I don't want to join this to the current domain at the moment. It also has SQL server 2005 with SP3 and cumulative update 3 installed. I have just setup the User Profiles Serice Application and when I go to Manage it, I get this. Error An unexpected error has occurred.   Troubleshoot issues with Microsoft SharePoint Foundation. Correlation ID: a1760e87-372f-4711-afac-3ceba34bc599 Date and Time: 8/31/2010 4:22:56 PM I have verified and configured the following. Created the Managed Metadata Service. The status is started via Service Applications and Services on Server. Created the User Profiles Service Application and ensured status is started via Service Applications. I started the User Profile Service and User Profile Synchronisation Service via Manage Services on Server.

How to use SharePoint 2007 list data in Reporting Service (Visual Studio) 2008?

Jeez - I have been googling left and right, and tried all the suggestions. No luck in getting it to work. I am using Reporting Service 2008 tools in my VS2008, trying to create a simple report using SharePoint 2007 data (from a simple list). Here is what I've been doing: Created a simple SharePoint list in a test site - only one column (Title) with one record of data. Started Visual Studio 2008 and created a new Report Server Project Wizard project. I named the data source "dsTest". Type: "XML". As connection string I used: http://site/subsite/subsite/_vti_bin/lists.asmx. Credentials: "Use Windows Authentication (Integrated Security)". Clicked Next and arrived at the "Design the Query" form. I entered this in the Query string box: <Query> <Method Namespace="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/soap/" Name="GetListItems" /> <SoapAction>http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/soap/GetListItems</SoapAction> </Query> Clicking Next I get this error: An error occurred while the query design method was being saved. Failed to execute web request for the specified URL. Soap Fault: Exception of type 'Microsoft.SharePoint.SoapServer.SoapServerException' was thrown. Now if I view the Details when trying it inside the Query Builder I get this: <errorstring xmlns="http://schemas.mi

SharePoint 2007 - Survey list - Getting user's Windows account ID from a web service using display

Surveys...grrrr.   I am developing a .NET console application that accesses survey data from a single survey list using the MOSS web service "Lists".   I am able to enumerate the survey list and get to the items except for the author of the survey response.  When I get to the column ows_Author, it appears to be a lookup value formatted like this:  "1066;#JOHN DOE".   How can I, using web services alone, lookup the corresponding Windows login ID of that user?  If I go to the survey in SharePoint and click on the name in the view, it takes me to a site-based user profile page that does show the account ID I want.  The page that displays appears to be a virtualized page like this "_layouts/userdisp.aspx?ID=1066".   What I really need is JOHN DOE's account ID like "domain\id". Can I get to this with the data I have available? Thanks

Import from web service into MOSS user profiles



We have a problem which is kinda explained in this article: 

We have company portal MOSS 2007 based, and a HR database (not sql server based) which has all employee data. Right now this data is manually typed into Active directory when new employee is hired, then it gets imported into MOSS (automatical import). 

We would like, for example, to import birth date, which has no field for in AD, directly from HR, and we also would like to import other fields from HR database. I can write custom web services in the HR base to give out this data.

I tried to read the article above but i understood nothing. Author tells to write some xml but i dont understand where do i put that xml. And it seems that he is importing from SQL server database but in my case it will be an xml output of a web service!

There is also an article by the author about writing custom code  here

[Sharepoint 2007] How can i change the email of a sharepoint user ?

Hi all,

I have created a new sharepoint user.

1. First of all i have added a new user in active directory. However at that time i forgot to give an email address. Big mistake !

I cannot send mail from sharepoint workflow with the new user.

2. Therefore I updated the email addresd in active directory afterwards. But the change was not reflected in sharepoint.

I updated the mail in sharepoint adminsitrative user profile. But it did not make no difference in the user moss profile.

I followed the article in http://sharepointnotes.wordpress.com/2008/05/05/syncing-wss-and-moss-user-profile-properties-with-active-directory/

I did the following commands :

1. stsadm -o sync
2. stsadm -o sync -synctiming m:2
3. stsadm -o sync -deleteolddatabases 6
 stsadm -o sync

None of these commands updated the user properties mail for my new MOSS User.

I also rebooted the machine but my MOSS user email was not updated.

Also I used the tool at http://userprofilesync.codeplex.com/releases/view/13227
like the following :

tool>UserProfileSync.exe -url http://mysite -ssp http://mysite:37239/ssp/admin
I did not make any difference

What else can I try in order to update the email of my MOSS user ?

SharePoint 2007 Web Application Images

When I create a new web application in MOSS 2007 the images are broken. I find "Red Cross" symbols but no images. To my surprise I have created plenty of applications before but I never had any such issues. The images on other applications on the same server work absolutely fine but when I try to create a new one I find this problem. I have also tried the following: 1. Added "Everyone" to the Images application 2. Checked the permissions on the site and folders 3. When I try to browse to the image it gives me a 403 forbidden error. In the Log files i see 403 1 5 0 error for all the images. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Share Point Designer 2007 Workflow (Sequential) - multi-collect data from user

I am currently building a multi-step workflow using ShrePoint designer for MOSS2007. I am getting a bit confused as to if I have an error or if I am doing something incorrect. Here is what I have going. My workflow consists of something similar to the following New document comes in, a collect data from user routine is ran and assigned to a reviewer. My understanding when I create a collect data from user WorkFlow step is any data I request is saved in the "Tasks" list. Therefore I need to grab the workflow task ID in order to later lookup what the reviewer submitted... I understand this...   However, I have one more collect data from user workflow step and I have one more item to collect. Even though this is a brand new collect data from user workflow step - does the collected data still go into the "Tasks" list? In other words, if I have two steps in a workflow and both of these steps are "collect data from user", does the data from both steps go into the same "Tasks" list?  I could see how this might be possible as long as the Task list columns contain all the items for all the different "collect" data from user steps.  I don't see two different Tasks lists representing or named "Reviewer" or "Final" or anything, so I assume the items are all in "Tasks"   However..

Problem Integration SQL Reporting Service 2005 and SharePoint 2007

Hello, I'm trying to make our SQL Reports available on our SharePoint report center. I have SQL 2005 (sp3) report server that resides on a different server than our SharePoint 2007 server. So in our SRS Configuration Tool, we changed the database mode for SharePoint integration (before, we only had it in native mode), so we created a new database for this SharePoint Integration type. Next, I installed the Report Server Add-in for SharePoint 2007 server and it was successful. However when configuring the Report Server, we got stuck at the step "Grant Database Access". For some reason we keep getting error message "Named instance not found" We already installed Service Pack 3 on the Report Server... I heard that the problem is because the mismatched version between the Report Server Add-in in SharePoint and the SQL RS version... but I don't think this is the case for us. Do we need to install WSS on our Report Server too?     Another question: We already integrate our Report Server with Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0. However I see that when the Report Server is in the SharePoint Integration mode, all the reports in CRM don't work (because Report Manager is no longer available in this mode). Do you think it would be the best practice to install a copy of Report Server instance in our SharePoint 2007 server? Thank you, greatly appreciate all your hel
