comment SharePoint List CreateBy column storing date value
lol. I agree. I put this in our issues log. I spent six hours today trying to figure out what the heck was going on. I didn't even know you could modify that field. I will post an answer as soon as it permits

comment SharePoint List CreateBy column storing date value
HA! So based on what you said I went into the column settings and guess what, someone changed the "Show Field" for this column to display "Created", which is a date. It should be Name (with presence). WTH? Thanks.

When I refer to the "created by" column, I mean the read only one that comes with every SP list, library, etc that stores the person's name who created the item.

comment Hide AD claims provider in a specific web app
Thanks Raphael, that sounds like it is our only option outside of taking the two AD-dependent sites out of our farm

comment The SharePoint server was moved to a different location. ( Error from SharePoint site: HttpStatusCode Found The request failed with the error message
Unfortunately, this didn't work for me. I removed the tilde and slash and SP duplicated the layouts path in the url: _layouts/15/CustomLogin/_layouts/15/CustomLogin/login.aspx

comment Custom claim provider is affecting NTLM authenticated web applications
Is your custom claims provider hiding or disabling the AD provider? If you run the PowerShell command Get-SPClaimProvider it will list all the claims providers and their statuses. Look for the Active Directory provider and note the IsVisible and IsEnabled property settings.

comment ADFS user names not resolving in Central admin
I didn't find a solution this this issue but I decided to go with a codeplex ADFS custom claims provider solution instead of my own and it turns out the names are resolving now in central admin. It must have been something with the claims provider I developed.

comment Error when performing site search after 2013 upgrade
Yes!!! I had to recreate the search app because my usage reports weren't working. When I did, it broke search on two of our web apps that were still in 2010 (UI) mode. I check the MSSLocations database and it was empty. I ran the script and results started showing up. Thanks!

comment SharePoint 2013 ADFS User MIgration
Thanks ciphertxt! I ran a script that exports all permissions for the farm (over 160,000 permissions), ran the migration, ran the report again and compare the results. I did this three times, refreshing the content DBs from production each time, and the permissions were an exact match each time. I did the migration in blocks of 1000 users

comment Get-SPUser without specify a site collection
Thanks Trevor! Quick question, how reliable is the move-spuser for converting user permissions? I was asked to document all permission prior to and after the move to do a comparison. That is a huge number of data points. Do you think this necessary?

comment Get-SPUser without specify a site collection
Ok. Thanks. So to expand a little, if I grab user A from site collection A and move him, what happens to his reference in the user information list in site collection B? The move cmd deletes the old user account in the user profile right after the move. Does site collection B get updated by the sync timer job?

just to clarify your comment, when you say "it is not you" you mean you can't just turn it on for a single site collection or site, correct?

I cleared the cache on all servers but it is still there. May have to open a ticket with MS :( Thanks for all your help.

comment orphaned custom claim provider?
unfortunately, recycling the timer job didn't help. The people picker is still showing results from the claim provider

comment orphaned custom claim provider?
I verified each time I went through these steps that the feature was gone from the web app. I even made a point of deactivating it before retracting and deleting it. I didn't recycle the time job though. I will do it again and try this.

Thanks Waqas, I did that a couple of times already to no avail. I updated my original post.

comment SharePoint and ADFS - Claim type
Thanks. That is really interesting because so many ADFS setup examples use the email address as the claim type. I think we definitely will be using the UPN, since that has to be unique in the forest and is far less likely to change. Appreciate the reply!

comment SharePoint Views and Item Level Permissions
I am going to venture a guess that SP will check security before pulling the items from the content database, versus pulling all items and then removing the ones not within the user's security context.
