This is due to inconsistency in the User Profile Service Application, mostly you can resolve this issue by restarting User Profile Synchronization Service, but sometimes you may have to re-provision UPS application.

I am delighted to write this post as I have achieved and learned quite a lot in the process of resolving a permissions issue. I had a strange requirement for one of my clients about restoring users and permissions deleted on site and document library level. There is only way to get around the issue is to restore the whole database, unless you have any third party tool in place to take care of the situation just to restore permissions. But as users have recently uploaded several year end reports, created several folders with lots permissions inheritance broken, which they were not prepared to lose. So restoring DB is out of scope. I was stuck in a strange situation on what to do. My initial thoughts were to restore the DB from the day before on the test server and export and import list permissions using Garry Lapointe’s export and import commands. But the issue was on the new folders created on live DB, when I try to import list security, all users were removed on new folders created on live. Then the option was to merge both the exported XML from live and test to overcome this new folder issue and restore permissions back to how it was before. Let’s start on how to: 1. First download Liquid XML tool, which is a handy tool to do most of your work. 2. Restore DB on your test server (I will not be covering on how to restore DB on SQL Server) 3. Run blow commands on the library where you would like the permissions removed, on both test and live servers. Continue reading

In one of my recent SharePoint 2013 customisations, I had to change the logo url on SharePoint 2013 search center to point to one of the SharePoint 2007 site collection. Yes, you read that right, link to the SP 2007 site. Basically I was using the 2013 search to crawl through SP 2007 content to make best use of its search features.
I am not using any custom Masterpage, just trying to change the URL link by amending below line, but only work on home page and not on results.aspx. I know it can be changed if I use Custom masterpage, but in this scope no custom master page is being used.

To make your SharePoint farm builds resilience, network load balancing plays an important role. In this article I will cover load balancing Web Front End servers using Citrix NetScaler.
To begin with the configuration.
1. Logon to Citrix NetScaler. Under traffic management, expand Load Balancing and click on servers and add SharePoint servers you would like to load balance. In this example, I will use WFE 01 and WFE02. Add server name and IP addresses.
This is the last step in setting up SharePoint 2013 server: Configuring Office Web Apps server for SharePoint 2013
2. Install prerequisites
Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack1 (But always refer to the MS KB, depends on the office web apps server, you may require to update your server to the latest service pack)
.Net Framework 4.5
Install powershell 3.0
Platform update for Windows Server 2008 R2
3. Open windows Powershell (Before running make sure that execute Powershell scripts are set to unrestricted) if it isn’t. Please follow below PS commands:
From the PS window run get-executionpolicy
If the output is Restricted Continue reading
As part of my 2007 to 2013 migration project, I had to move my sites to separate content database (Within MOSS) and a web application. There are other blogs written about moving my site using STSADM mergecontentdb and all, it works absolutely fine but in some environments if there are any custom entries on web.config on your actual portal, where you are moving your my sites from, it could cause some weird .net errors.
Let’s start with the steps on moving my sites and then fixing the error, it’s just simple solution, but you will end up spending hours, hope this will help.
Note: Minimum of Service Pack 1 is required to work below solution.
1. Create a separate web application and name it MySiteshost and Wss_Content_MySites name to content database. Continue reading
