There's definitely no differences in this area (what I call the "core SharePoint API") between Foundation and Server. The problem is clearly elsewhere. Do you get an error, or simply nothing happens? I bet the latter, and consequently the problem would be in SiteExists(sSiteUrl). Are you sure sSiteUrl is a different one the second run? Can't you have a ...

If you staying within same active directory then no need to worry about it. Whatever method you select either Content DB move or 3rd party migration. One thing, how you move your User profile service.https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj839719.aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396

Realize this is old but in the future if you get a correlation ID you can simply open the management shell (SharePoint) and type the following: merge-splogfile -correlation "your correlationID" -Path "C:\someDirectory\SomeFile.log This will scan the entire farm regardless of server count and write any entries to SomeFile.log where you can open it with ...

I think that this could be your solution: Add a User or Group to the SPWebApplication User Policy for all Web Applications in the farm The interesting code should be Get-SPWebApplication http://sharepoint2010 | foreach { $webApp = $_ $policy = $webApp.Policies.Add($userOrGroup, $displayName) $policyRole = ...

Yes, you need a license for each SharePoint server in a farm. There are licensing options for the Test environments, e.g. MSDN, but the restriction there is only users with MSDN licensing may access the Test environment. Don't forget there are also SharePoint Standard and Enterprise User CALs. Each user using Standard features needs a SharePoint Standard ...

If you have 'append content' selected for a field, then in edit mode you don't see the full history. You need to view version history to see the content added. When you changed this setting back to No then you will have been advised the field settings were changed so you have 'blanked' out the history

You need to start the Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Web Service on all servers in your farm. There is no reason to disable it.

We had this exact same problem. This post is what worked for us, without having to recreate components like some will tell you to do. http://blogs.msdn.com/b/kristopherloranger/archive/2014/09/26/sharepoint-2013-on-prem-reset-index-stuck-resolution.aspx Hope it works for you!

Without changing permissions, the only way would perhaps be to create one additional site collection, call it "Sharing" or something similar, and instruct people to copy shared documents there OR create them there in the first place.

In the formula you have used, addDays (column, 15), SO I assume you are having a date field, where you wish to add 15 days and show the resulting date in a datepicker control in mm/dd/yyyy format. And since the 'column' you are referring to is a date time control you are also getting time when you add days to it. You can try this in the date picker control, ...

Better reinstall the farm and migrate data. Backup/restore can help. If it's not possible, talk to your Microsoft contact.

I don't think you need to learn C# and Asp.net for branding. For branding you will need to have knowledge of HTML and CSS. You can get tons articles on Google for SharePoint 2013 branding .

The Content Sources defined in the Search Service Application in Central Administration determine what the search engine should index/crawl.

It just depends on the type of information you’re working with. Is the document important or is the information about that document is required? So for example, if you need to keep track of registrations for an event; it would be more efficient to have them in a Custom List as you can create views to see how many people have accepted or declined, all their ...

AFAIK, content type is not included in the crawled properties by default. In order to search by content type you'd need to create a new managed property, and all the other steps involved (search scope, full crawl) for getting a custom property included in the search. If all the above meant little to you, you need to work with your SharePoint administrator ...

In the world of knowledge management (where I live), the rule of thumb is you never attach a document to an article but rather store it in a shared library & provide a link to it in the article. The reason behind this is that if you have that document attached to multiple articles (list items), you now have to remember & manage it in all of those ...

Glad you offered a long post - helps me narrow down on what I think is the answer for you! That "/?$select=ItemCount" at the end of your URL is superfluous. If you just query http://[mydomain]/resource/025/_api/web/lists/getbytitle('[list display name]') with the REST API call it will return a dictionary of metadata about the list. Then your Get ...

I think that you won't be able to avoid an index reset or a re-crawl. I'm not a search expert and have only cloned a search topology once but it seem's that all the search components need to be in a healthy state to be able to clone them, otherwise you would only clone a topology that is still broken and would be stuck with the same problem.

There are two reasons that it can happen: Browser is picking up Caches CSS file If you upload file in SharePoint (not in _layouts folder), and it is not published as major version, user won't be getting CSS with latest changes.

Try adding a query string at the end of the style sheet reference. Like, <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="myFile.css?v=1">. That way the browser downloads it again and does not use the cached copy. Change the query string value every time you run into this issue.

After much research I have found below details with which we can create a custom wiki page template.

So whenever you create a new item (wiki page) ...

This blog post explains in a verbose, but clear, fashion about how to appropriately configure blob caching for SharePoint.

Use of a non-zero max-age attribute will result in the ...

Using JSOM you can find out whether the user is a domain user or not. But there is no JSOM method available to expand a domain group and find the users. If you want to stick with JavaScript then you should create a web service, that can give you the information. Deploy the web service under SharePoint context and use AJAX for getting the data.

If using the database attach method to migrate content from a 2010 farm to a 2013 farm, then you'll want to either convert the 2010 web application to claims mode before the move, then migrate the databases to a claims mode 2013 web application (this is Microsoft's recommendation), or create a classic mode web application using PowerShell in 2013, attach the ...

As many item types are stored in the distributed cache (e.g. tags, document activities, authentication and security information etc.) it is not recommended that the distributed cache is disabled.

I wouldn't stop this service. SharePoint use it in several ways: User profiles Updates go to cache; all servers then see this update.
