  • Blog Post: SharePoint 2013 Site Creation Failure

    A customer recently called me because they were having issues with site creation in their test farm. They couldn't sites in any web app and content DB. To their knowledge, nothing in the environment had changed recently. They had recently installed SP1 for SharePoint 2013, but believed they had created...
  • Blog Post: SharePoint 2013 and forms based authentication configuration for Open LDAP

    I was recently tasked with helping a customer configure their SharePoint 2013 farm to uses forms based authentication against a standard non-MS LDAP directory. This directory was configured to require an authenticated user to make the query. No anonymous queries allowed! The following article explains...
  • Blog Post: SQL Server 2014 and SharePoint supportability

    SQL Server 2014 just hit RTM. I'm sure all the tech junkies out there are wondering when SharePoint will support SQL 2014. According to Bill's post, it looks like official support for SQL 2014 and SharePoint 2013 will be included in the April 2014 CU for SharePoint 2013. I'm sure some of you are going...
  • Blog Post: SharePoint Conference 2014

    I want to post a quick note to let folks know that I'll be at the SharePoint conference next week. If any reads want to say hello, please do! I love meeting readers. (If they're actually humans and not search engine bots) I usually wander around the "Ask the Experts" session, so look for me there.

    Service Pack 1 for SharePoint 2013 has been released . This includes all previous bug fixes released in the CUs. It also enables the ability for folks to use Windows Server 2012 R2.

  • Blog Post: SharePoint 2013 Mysite creation error: User cannot be found.

    I was recently troubleshooting a Mysite creation issue. Windows users could create mysites without issue. Claims users were getting a failure, with the following error in the ULS logs. (Mysites are batch created in OWSTimer. When you're looking for the logs related to this) This error didn't make a ton...
  • Blog Post: App Fabric Support Stance Change

    We have made a change regarding the support stance for App Fabric for SharePoint 2013. The following (poorly worded) KB explains that you are now free to install AppFabric patches as they are released publicly. SharePoint CUs/SPs will not contain fixes for App Fabric. Hopefully this helps to resolve...
  • Blog Post: Antivirus for SharePoint 2013

    This post is meant to be a follow up to my previous post regarding SharePoint Antivirus solutions . I've seen a number of questions lately asking about AV scanners that plug into SharePoint 2013, sometimes running on Windows Server 2012. As of today, the only product that has an RTM version of an antivirus...

  • Blog Post: Adventures with SharePoint People Picker, Domain Migrations and Groups

    I recently worked a customer issue, where the customer was going through a domain migration. The customer is running SharePoint 2010. (This works for both 2007 and 2013 as well) There are two forests, with users in both. Users from one of the domains were being moved to the domain in the other forest...
  • Blog Post: Remove the Quick Launch in SharePoint 2013

    There are two ways to remove the Quick Launch in SharePoint 2013. The first is to open the site in Share Designer, and uncheck the option to "Display Quick Launch". While this works, it doesn't move the content to the left. You're left with an empty space that doesn't look great. The second...
  • Blog Post: Moving a SharePoint 2013 site template from On Premise to the Cloud aka Office 365

    I've recently volunteered for a project to recreate a couple of site templates for SP2013. During this process, I was creating the items on a farm in my lab. (On Premise/Private Cloud) When I finished up my work, I needed to test that the template worked on O365. When I moved the template over, I was...
  • Blog Post: SharePoint 2013 Workflow-Collect Data from a user and other actions missing

    I got tapped to help with an internal project to upgrade a couple of custom site templates from SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2013. No big deal right? I'll just create a new site in SP2010 off of the original template, content DB attach it to 2013, and then export the template again. Well, it looks like...
  • Blog Post: Visio stencils for SharePoint 2013

  • Blog Post: Can I upgrade from SharePoint 2007 directly to SharePoint 2013?

    A lot of customers want to know if you can upgrade from SharePoint Server 2007/WSS 3.0 to SharePoint 2013. The answer to that question is not directly. You'll have to upgrade your content and service applications(if required) through the process to get to 2010 and then to 2013. If you don't want to do...
