This is a nightmare situation to be in! Got it escalated in Microsoft who indeed know and have already fixed the source (so terminated backups don't trigger this) in the April CU http://blogs.technet.com/b/stefan_gossner/archive/2013/04/27/april-2013-cu-for-sharepoint-2013-has-been-released.aspx - you have to install March CU first. However, it does not yet ...

I got this error when trying to do Restore-SPSite on a SharePoint Farm that did not match the schema version of the backed-up Site Collection. After installing the correct CU to my target environment the Restore-SPSite worked without issues.

Check out this article on nothingbutsharepoint.com on how to find the versions in SP2010. And Todd Klindt has a nice break down too. Taken from Todd's article, To see which build your farm is, go to Central Administration > System Settings > Manage servers in your farm (/_admin/FarmServers.aspx) Or using Windows PowerShell: (get-spfarm)....

The account will need permissions on the content database. Just executing: Add-SPShellAdmin CONTOSO\User1 Will give you access to the configuration database, but not the content database.

Probably it occurs since you are using App-only policy type for authorization . According to App authorization policy types in SharePoint 2013: App-only policy—When the app-only policy is used, SharePoint checks only the permissions of the app principal. Authorization check succeeds only if the current app has sufficient permissions to perform the ...

This is what I follow. The most important thing to note is if you screw up somewhere along the way you have to blow away your service application before trying again.

An alternate solution to the problem of not having upgraded to April 2013 CU is a simple powershell script that uses reflection to set the value of the internal 'MaintenanceMode' property:- $site = Get-SPSite http://urltofreakinlockedsite/ $site.GetType().GetProperty("MaintenanceMode").GetSetMethod($true).Invoke($site, @($false)) This approach has the ...

Just look at the code snippet below and try to imagine the scenario of what will happen: using(SPSite site = new SPSite("http://somesite")) { using (SPWeb web = site.OpenWeb(SameGuid)) { return web.Url; } } The above code can raise an exception because two web objects would be returned, there are infinite scenarios where GUID is used to ...

Sharepoint designer consider as a part of the office family so that its version should match with other installed office products. In your case you have 64 bit of Windows and 32 bit of office so you need 32 bit of designer. Now either reinstall the office with 64 bit or install the sharepoint designer with 32 bit https://ofaolain.com/blog/2015/02/05/get-...

Why not simply using Central Admin... :-) (works even if you do NOT have access to either the physical server (console) or databases server. Central Admin -> Upgrade and Migration -> Review Database Status. By pasting /_admin/DatabaseStatus.aspx at your CA url. Rgds, Arjan Vos

I was able to accomplish this using the following PowerShell commands: $site = Get-SPWeb https://server.name/site/ $site.Lists["ListName"].RootFolder.MoveTo("ListName") Normally, the MoveTo method would take an argument like "Lists/ListName", but when it's passed just the list name it moves the list to the root of the site. This command can also be used to ...

The domain that needs to be isolated is only a DNS domain not a new AD domain. This is purely such that you have a separate IIS site where Cross Site Scripting is prevented by the browser. You can add that new domain in DNS (see Configure an environment for apps for SharePoint (SharePoint 2013)) or hosts file. The High trust app still needs the same ...

You cannot prevent SharePoint or Global Admins from gaining access to a Site Collection.

In my experience, it shows the total number of page views since page creation. Though, the method to calculate page views is not known to me, so it could be different. Its not stored in any hidden list or something, but in some data store for which we dont have any API yet. The Social Bar will appear on all modern SharePoint Online pages with the ...

The blog you linked to has the correct answer. It's not optimal, but it works. One source of confusion is that after creating a team site, there are two groups with the same name. For example, if you create a new team site named "project 1", the following groups will be created: "project 1" - This group is visible in the list of groups in the admin console....

As almost always with SharePoint the answer is "It depends". Why should I have a separate Install account? The main purpose of a separate Install account is to be sure you have an account which is owner of all the installed files and therefore always have the rights to update these. So at least you shouldn't use a personal account for the installation as ...

Because of the Powershell is not showing any description related to the data type of the value . so I tried to check the parameter type that should be passed to web.Fields in visual studio and I found out : The web.Fields[fieldname] accepts only the display name and not the internal name of the field as shown below. Meanwhile, I tried to check the ...

Users are not allowed to enumerate 'higher' permissions. So have your script (which only has to run when administrators havechanged) dump the info into a public List (or formatted HTML file)

Above scenario should work, as you are deleting the existing site collection then you will not see the Duplicate GUID problem. You may need to refresh the config db, in order to update the record ( very less chances) $db = Get-SPDatabase | where {$_.Name -eq "DatabaseName"} $db.RefreshSitesInConfigurationDatabase()
