ok - as sysadmin i have been assigned the latest title 'Sharepoint expert' and handed what I call a spaghetti install of 2013... and a long list of custom changes to do...
I would like some pointers on a couple of areas....
From what I can make out we have a url www.test.com
with ssl which points to a 'portal' root site.
1 ) we have a 'sub site' where all the files and info located, the portal site is empty.
....is there a way of pointing the url directly to the subsite - so we dont see the empty portal?! were not going to use the portal at all.
- In IIS the bindings are set by Sharepoint and greyed out so i cant alter the url in IIS.
- I tried entering redirect html code in the portal homepage but it didnt seem to work.
whats the best practice for doing this??
2) Permissions! - help!
is it best practice to use AD groups? - i am using groups and it doesn't seem to update.
I managed to adjust the AD refresh time in sharepoint from 24hrs to 1min.
We dont want users to be able to edit links or create new pages etc, they need to be able to view existing pages, view and edit/save/delete all documents, we dont want them to edit the site at all or have any Admin access - which group do i need to assign?
is this the Member group?
