ahp banner sharepoint-01

You have installed and configured a new instance of SQL Server 2012. You have configured a database server alias on all SharePoint servers. You have not yet run the configuration wizard, but are now beginning configuration tasks. Your first task is to create the configuration database manually so as to avoid the lengthy GUID that SharePoint configuration wizard normally appends to the database name. On the batch serverYou run New-SPConfigurationDatabase, and then experience the following response in the management shell:

New-SPConfigurationDatabase : Cannot connect to database master at SQL server at [DatabaseAlias]. The database might not exist, or the current user does not have permission to connect to it. At line:1 char:1 + New-SPConfigurationDatabase -DatabaseName DB_Config -DatabaseServer [alias] – … + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ + CategoryInfo : InvalidData:(Microsoft.Share… urationDatabase:SPCmdletNewSPConfigurationDatabase) [New-SPConfigurationDatabase], SPException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell.SPCmdletNewSPConfigurationDatabase

SharePoint 2013 Hosting – ASPHostPortal.com :: How to Solve Cannot generate SSPI context in SharePoint

Today’s problem occured after I restarted a Hyper-V based SharePoint 2013 farm (Windows Server 2012, one SharePoint 2013 machine, one SQL Server 2012 machine, one DC). I fired up Central Administration and was hit with the following error:

ahp banner sharepoint-01

Unknown SQL Exception 0 occurred. Additional error information from SQL Server is included below.

The target principal name is incorrect. Cannot generate SSPI context.

After checking the obvious things – testing connectivity to the DB server, checking the SQL service was running, verifying permissions, etc – I initially figured this was an issue with my Hyper-V snapshots being out of sync, so I ran the SharePoint Products Configuration Wizard. This hit me with the following error:

Failed to detect if this server is joined to a server farm. Possible reasons for this failure could be that you no longer have appropriate permissions to the server farm, the database server hosting the server farm is unresponsive, the configuration database is inaccessible or this server has been removed from the server farm.

I attempted to rejoin the server farm to no avail, then I realised I was barking up the wrong tree. The initial error message suggests a Kerberos issue, while my farm is set up to use NTLM. After a lot of searching, this ancient forum thread pointed me in the right direction. In Active Directory, I opened the computer record for the DB server. In the attribute list, the servicePrincipalName attribute showed the following entries:

How to Solve Cannot generate SSPI context in SharePoint

Delete the two MSSQLSvc entries and then restart the database server. In most cases this should solve the problem. Without the SPNs, authentication falls back to NTLM as it should and the farm comes back to life.

Other users have reported that they also need to delete the RestrictedKrbHost entries. In a previous version of this post, I suggested deleting every entry – after all, if we’re using NTLM, we shouldn’t need any SPNs. However, if you delete all the entries you may find you have to remove and then re-add the database server to the domain.

I’m fairly certain that this issue arose when I added Analysis Services to the SQL Server instance on the database server. Other users have reported similar issues when adding Reporting Services and Integration Services to a SQL Server instance.

SharePoint 2013 Hosting – ASPHostPortal.com :: How to Fix SharePoint Cannot Show The Value of Filter

Multi-valued PeoplePicker Column that can be filtered using PowerShell

Recently I came across an error while filtering the multi-valued PeoplePicker column. The error reads “Cannot show the value of filter“. The field may not be filterable, or the number of items returned exceeds the list view threshold enforced by the administrator.” There are only four values in the column, surely it has no relation to the list view threshold value.

ahp banner sharepoint-01

Internally, SharePoint server uses “_layouts/filter.aspx” application page for filter values which are presented in an iFrame. I checked the ULS logs and copied the Request URL with filter.aspx. I pasted it in browser and hit “Enter”. It returned no result.

What is multi-valued field?

The field which allows more than one values or which allows multiple selections. The multi-valued fileds are non-sortable, non-filterable. Multi-valued fields cannot be indexed.

How to Fix

This behavior can be overridden. Every field has an associated schema. Multi-valued fields are marked as “Sortable =false” in the schema for performance reasons. Note: Apply the workaround wherever it is unavoidable.

If we mark the multi-valued PeoplePicker as “Sortable=true”, the column turns filterable/ sortable. This can be achieved using SharePoint Server Object Model or using Windows PowerShell (I love it).

PowerShell Script to mark the column as Sortable:

$web=Get-SPWeb <weburl>
$list=$web.Lists[<list title>]
$field=$list.Fields[<field title>]
$strSchema=$field.SchemaXml
$str=Schema$strSchema.Replace(“Sortable=`”FALSE`””,”Sortable=`”true`””)
$field.SchemaXml = $strSchema

Update: I noticed that multi-valued “person or group” column in other web application was showing filter choices even though “Sortable=false”. Googling did not help. I checked at various levels and found that “Online Presence” setting causes this error. If Online presence setting is turned OFF, SP 2010 starts showing this error for multi-valued columns when tried to filter. So turn it ON, and no error, filter choices are shown back. The Online Presence setting is available in Web applications’s General Settings.

SharePoint 2013 Hosting – ASPHostPortal.com :: Deploying Managed Metadata Fields Declaratively

In this article, we will see how we are able to deploy Managed metadata fields in a declarative way in SharePoint

A managed metadata column lets you handle the data that people can enter into a column. Users select the terms or phrases that they enter within the column from a pre-defined set of managed terms.

ahp banner sharepoint-01The challenge comes if you desire to provision your custom managed metadata navigation field inside a declarative way, and adding this column to a content variety or a list instance without having losing all the strong functions that comes along making use of this field sort.

Out on the Box, if you added a managed column for your list SharePoint performs some actions behind the scene:

Creates a hidden note field attached to your column
Attached your list to two event receivers to update the taxonomy hidden list .
Fills in some properties related to the current web and taxonomy list id
Creates a taxonomy search managed  property after a full crawl that could be used as a refiner or even as a category column if you are planning to use the Product Catalog model.

So you’ll find a lot of articles explaining how you can deploy Managed Metadata Fields declarative in SharePoint, but they are scattered, so I decided to aggregate all of the suggestions and tricks to cover this activity.

  • Taxonomy Field  declarative XML, no tricks here

    <Field ID=”{20A3C69E-FFFB-43F4-BBDF-2D22BAF0EB84}”
    Type=”TaxonomyFieldType”
    DisplayName=”$Resources:myResourceFile,EventType”
    ShowField=”Term1033″
    Required=”TRUE”
    EnforceUniqueValues=”FALSE”
    Group=”Custom”
    StaticName=”CustomEventType”
    Name=”CustomEventType”
    Filterable=”TRUE”
    Sortable=”TRUE” />

  • SharePoint creates a hidden note field to be field with chosen values even though filling the taxonomy field, right here comes the tricky element, although adding your custom field towards the list you must add this hidden field in addition to it, The Display name need to comply with the following convention ‘TaxonomyField_0′ and the static name should adhere to the following convention ‘TaxononmyFieldTaxHTField0′, without having following this conventions SharePoint search will not create the crawled property for your custom column ‘ows_taxId_CustomEventType’, and for certain will not generate the managed house

    ‘owstaxidKataraEventType’<Field ID=”{09F37A61-50FE-413E-941F-3BEE2A1B5BF8}”
    Name=”CustomEventTypeTaxHTField0″
    StaticName=”KataraEventTypeTaxHTField0″
    SourceID=”http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/v3/fields”
    Type=”Note”
    DisplayName=”CustomEventType_0″
    Group=”Katara”
    Hidden=”TRUE” />

  • Soon after declaring the schema of each field you must get them connected together, and ought to attach the developed column to a specific Term Set and distinct Term to choose from as a source, this could possibly be achived by adding a function event receiver making use of the following code snippet.SPSite site = properties.Feature.Parent as SPSite;

    Guid eventFieldId = new Guid(“{20A3C69E-FFFB-43F4-BBDF-2D22BAF0EB84}”);if (site.RootWeb.Fields.Contains(eventFieldId))
    {
    TaxonomySession session = new TaxonomySession(site);
    if (session.TermStores.Count != 0)
    {
    var termStore = session.TermStores["Managed Metadata Serivce"];
    var group = termStore.Groups["YOUR GROUP NAME"];
    var termSet = group.TermSets["YOUR TERM SET NAME"];var eventTypeTerm = termSet.Terms["THE TERM NAME CONTAINING YOUR VALUE"];

    TaxonomyField eventField = site.RootWeb.Fields[eventFieldId] as TaxonomyField;

    //Attach the note field to the taxonomy field
    eventField.TextField = new Guid(“{09F37A61-50FE-413E-941F-3BEE2A1B5BF8}”);

    // Connect to MMS
    eventField.SspId = termSet.TermStore.Id;
    eventField.TermSetId = termSet.Id;
    eventField.TargetTemplate = string.Empty;
    eventField.AnchorId = eventTypeTerm.Id;
    eventField.LookupWebId = site.RootWeb.ID;

    if (eventField.TypeAsString == “TaxonomyFieldTypeMulti”)
    ageGroupField.AllowMultipleValues = true;

    eventField.Update();
    }
    }

  • Within this stage we’ve got our field provisioned and added to our site as a web site column, the next step is usually to add it to a content sort, the trick here is we should add two hidden fields ‘TaxCatchAll’ & ‘TaxCatchAllLabel’ fields,If it doesn’t, then you won’t get facets showing up correctly in faceted search. Note that not having the TaxCatchAll and TaxCatchAllLabel pair of columns in your list or library or content variety can cause that.
  • so our field references will probably be like the following

    <FieldRef ID=”{20A3C69E-FFFB-43F4-BBDF-2D22BAF0EB84}” DisplayName=”$Resources:FILENAME_Columns,EventType;” Required=”TRUE” Name=”CustomEventType” Filterable=”TRUE” Sortable=”TRUE” />
    <FieldRef ID=”{09F37A61-50FE-413E-941F-3BEE2A1B5BF8}” DisplayName=”CustomEventType_0″ Hidden=”TRUE” Name=”CustomEventTypeTaxHTField0″ />
    <FieldRef ID=”{f3b0adf9-c1a2-4b02-920d-943fba4b3611}” DisplayName=”Taxonomy Catch All Column” Required=”FALSE” Hidden=”TRUE” Name=”TaxCatchAll” Sealed=”TRUE” Sortable=”FALSE” />
    <FieldRef ID=”{8f6b6dd8-9357-4019-8172-966fcd502ed2}” DisplayName=”Taxonomy Catch All Column1″ Required=”FALSE” Hidden=”TRUE” Name=”TaxCatchAllLabel” ReadOnly=”TRUE” Sealed=”TRUE” Sortable=”FALSE” />

  • Now we come to the next trick, referencing these columns to a list template within the schema.xml file , the trick right here would be to declare the TaxHiddenList ‘TaxCatchAll’ & ‘TaxCatchAllLabel’ correctly to the the list schema, these fields are a lookup columns so they need the information list (source), following is the definetion, NOTE the List attribute.

    <Field Type=”LookupMulti” DisplayName=”Taxonomy Catch All Column” StaticName=”TaxCatchAll” Name=”TaxCatchAll” ID=”{f3b0adf9-c1a2-4b02-920d-943fba4b3611}” ShowInViewForms=”FALSE” List=”Lists/TaxonomyHiddenList” Required=”FALSE” Hidden=”TRUE” CanToggleHidden=”TRUE” ShowField=”CatchAllData” SourceID=”{1e46f7fe-3764-40b5-abd1-1746c716214b}” Mult=”TRUE” Sortable=”FALSE” AllowDeletion=”TRUE” Sealed=”TRUE” Version=”2″ />
    <Field Type=”LookupMulti” DisplayName=”Taxonomy Catch All Column1″ StaticName=”TaxCatchAllLabel” Name=”TaxCatchAllLabel” ID=”{8f6b6dd8-9357-4019-8172-966fcd502ed2}” ShowInViewForms=”FALSE” List=”Lists/TaxonomyHiddenList” Required=”FALSE” Hidden=”TRUE” CanToggleHidden=”TRUE” ShowField=”CatchAllDataLabel” FieldRef=”{F3B0ADF9-C1A2-4b02-920D-943FBA4B3611}” SourceID=”{1e46f7fe-3764-40b5-abd1-1746c716214b}” ReadOnly=”TRUE” Mult=”TRUE” Sortable=”FALSE” AllowDeletion=”TRUE” Sealed=”TRUE” Version=”2″ />

  • Finally, we require to attache the “TaxonomyItemSynchronousAddedEventReceiver” & “TaxonomyItemUpdatingEventReceiver” to update all the hidden fields.

    <Receiver>
    <Name>TaxonomyItemSynchronousAddedEventReceiver</Name>
    <Type>ItemAdding</Type>
    <Assembly>Microsoft.SharePoint.Taxonomy, Version=14.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c</Assembly>

SharePoint 2013 Hosting :: How To Update Conflict Error in SharePoint Using PowerShell Script

Hi guys this article explains you about How To Update Conflict Error in SharePoint Using PowerShell Script. Many of you must have come across the issue “An update conflict has occurred and you must re-try this action” and it is suggested to remove the file system cache on the front-end servers. There are many articles to show how to do this manually. But here I will show you how to resolve it using a PowerShell script.

Cause for this issue

This issue occurs if the contents of the file system cache on the front-end servers are newer than the contents of the configuration database.

Resolution

To resolve this issue, clear the file system cache on all servers in the server Farm on which the Windows SharePoint Services Timer service is running. This can be done manually, but consider a large Farm where the administrator needs to login to each of the servers to perform the activity manually. It is time-consuming and people can make mistakes. PowerShell becomes handy here.

The following procedure can resolve the issue:

  1. Stop the SharePoint timer service
  2. Take a backup of the system cache files before deleting it
  3. Delete the XML files from the cache folder
  4. Reset the cache.ini file to the value 1
  5. Start the SharePoint timer service

Now I will explain how to perform the preceding tasks using a PowerShell script.

  • Stop SharePoint timer service

The following piece of code stops the SharePoint timer service:

    Function StopSPTimerServicesInFarm([Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPFarm]$farm)  
    {  
        Write-Host ""  
        foreach($server in $farm.Servers)  
            {  
            foreach($instance in $server.ServiceInstances)  
                    {  
                            # If the server has the timer service then stop the service  
                           if($instance.TypeName -eq $timerServiceInstanceName)  
                           {  
                                [string]$serverName = $server.Name  
       
                                Write-Host "Stop " $timerServiceName " service on server: " $serverName -fore yellow  
                                   
                                $service = Get-WmiObject -ComputerName $serverName Win32_Service -Filter "DisplayName='$timerServiceName'"  
                                $serviceInternalName = $service.Name  
                                sc.exe \\$serverName stop $serviceInternalName > $null  
      
                                  # Wait until this service has actually stopped  
                      write-host "Waiting for '$timerServiceName' service on server: " $serverName " to be stopped" -fore yellow  
                                  do  
                          {

SharePoint 2013 Hosting :: Duplicate Web Part Issue in SharePoint 2013

Today for something regarding one of the new features of SharePoint 13. There is the new attribute “ReplaceContent=TRUE” for the <File> element in <Module>.

Until SharePoint 2010, whenever we reactivate the PageLayout feature (the feature that provisions the page layouts in a master page gallery), web parts that have been added to the page layout are duplicated on the new page and we do not have a very standard solution to resolve this problem except for writing a feature receiver and removing the duplicated web parts.

ahp banner sharepoint-01
In SharePoint 2013 is the new attribute “ReplaceContent=TRUE” of the <File> element and if we use this when provisioning the page layout it overrides the existing web parts on the page layouts. So whenever we create a new page from the given page layouts, web parts are not duplicated.

    <Elements xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/">  
      <Module Name="MyPageLayouts" Url="_catalogs/masterpage" RootWebOnly="TRUE">  
        <File Path="MyPageLayouts\MyPageLayout.aspx" Url="MyPageLayouts.Intranet/MyPageLayout.aspx" Type="GhostableInLibrary" ReplaceContent="TRUE">       
    <!—- All our web parts goes here -->  
        </File>  
      </Module>

Have a look at the preceding example, I have set the ReplaceContent=”TRUE”. Because of this whenever I change, add or delete a web part in this elements.xml file and I need to reactivate the feature, the web parts on the page layouts are not duplicated but they do get overridden.

Other Usage example

I’ll like to share one more scenario related to this, I have a sandbox solution that I am deploying on Office 365. I was uploading my package file (.wsp) to the Solution Gallery and activating it. In my package I have one feature that is deploying my CSS file in the master page gallery since I do not have file system access. I had a change in CSS file, I did the change, packaged the solution, deactivated the solution first, uploaded it to the solution gallery and activated it. But my CSS changes are not reflected. Then I remembered the “ReplaceContent” attribute and I used it in the module element while provisioning the CSS file and wonder happened? It worked like a charm.

Feel free if you have some thoughts on this or please share your experience. Thanks :)

SharePoint 2013 Hosting :: How To Retrieve Followed Sites in SharePoint 2013 Using REST API

This article explains how to retrieve the site name and URL followed by the current user in SharePoint 2013 using a client object model (REST API and JavaScript)

We can use the SharePoint 2013 Representational State Transfer (REST) service to do the same tasks you can do when you use the .NetCSOM, JSOM.
Here I explain how to retrieve the site name and URL followed by the current user in SharePoint 2013 using a client object model (REST API and JavaScript) and displaying it in the SharePoint page.

  • Create a new page and a Content Editor Webpart (CEWP)

Create a New page

  • Edit the web part that was added to the page.
  • Upload your text file script into the site assests and copy the path of the text file and paste it into the Content link in CEWP.

Code

The following example shows how to retrieve all of the following sites:

<html>    
    <head>    
       <script type="text/javascript" src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.8.3/jquery.min.js"></script>    
          <script type="text/javascript">  
             var followingManagerEndpoint;  
             var followedCount; 
             var followingEndpoint;    
             var URL;    
             var website;    
             var clientContext;  
             SP.SOD.executeFunc('sp.js', 'SP.ClientContext', loadWebsite);    
             function loadWebsite() {    
                clientContext = SP.ClientContext.get_current();    
                website = clientContext.get_web();    
                clientContext.load(website);    
                clientContext.executeQueryAsync(onRequestSucceeded, onRequestFailed);    
             }    
             function onRequestSucceeded() {   
               URL = website.get_url();    
               followingManagerEndpoint = decodeURIComponent(URL) + "/_api/social.following";   
               getMyFollowedContent();  
            }    
            function onRequestFailed(sender, args) {    
              alert('Error: ' + args.get_message());    
            }   
            // Get the content that the current user is following.  
            // The "types=14" parameter specifies all content types  
            // (documents = 2 + sites = 4 + tags = 8).  
           function getMyFollowedContent() {  
             $.ajax( {  
                  url: followingManagerEndpoint + "/my/followed(types=14)",  
                  headers: {   
                      "accept": "application/json;odata=verbose"  
                  },  
                  success: followedContentRetrieved,  
                  error: requestFailed  
            });  
         }  
         // Parse the JSON data and iterate through the collection.  
         function followedContentRetrieved(data) {  
             var stringData = JSON.stringify(data);  
             var jsonObject = JSON.parse(stringData);   
             var types = {  
               1: "document",  
               2: "site",  
               3: "tag"   
            };  
            var followedActors = jsonObject.d.Followed.results;   
            var followedList = "You're following items:";  
            for (var i = 0; i < followedActors.length; i++) {  
               var actor = followedActors[i];  
               followedList += "<p>The " + types[actor.ActorType] + ": \"" +actor.Name + "\"</p>"+"<p>Site URL " + ": \"" +  
               actor.Uri+ "\"</p>";;  
            }   
            $("#Follow").html(followedList);   
         }  
         function requestFailed(xhr, ajaxOptions, thrownError) {  
           alert('Error:\n' + xhr.status + '\n' + thrownError + '\n' + xhr.responseText);  
         }  
       </script>    
    </head>    
 <body>    
 <div id="Follow"></div>    
 </body>    
 </html>

Happy Coding :)
