Simplifying Server Workload Migrations

This use case outlines the migration challenges that organizations face and how the Acronis AnyData Engine supports physical-to-physical (P2P), physical-to-virtual (P2V), virtual to physical (V2P), and cross-virtual (V2V) migration scenarios to address these challenges.

What is trivial using the SharePoint OOTB 2013 Workflow, seems to be a challenge in Nintex.  I have a Nintex workflow which needs to copy the current document to another document library.

So far, I haven't been able to find out how to do this "TRIVIAL" task.

Please advise.

Beginner questions... Using O365, Azure, SharePoint. Not sure of proper way to add new computer and user for my purposes. Not even sure I need Azure at all. Needs: Manage users' O365 deployments, personal (business) email accounts & shared email accounts; give users access to OneDrive for Business and SharePoint site; allow users to upload to and manage SharePoint folders. All users have O365 Business Premium accounts.

Computers are not shared among users, one user/one computer. When adding new computer and user do I just create a local account, download their Office applications and use their email/Office credentials to sign in to Office and OneDrive, then map a network drive to the SharePoint site's Documents folder? Then I'd tell them to store docs specific to them in OneDrive, and docs to be shared on the SharePoint site in appropriate locations? I only have about 15 machines in two departments, and can assign the few needed access permissions to specific SharePoint folders... not really needing Teams or Groups. Correct? Most users will need to only create folders, not manage sharing or create links to them.

Anticipated workflow example: Give service tech a tablet for taking photos; tech takes photos and gives tablet to service writer who has created SharePoint folders > Service/Customer Name/Work Order #; service writer adds photos to SP folder via tablet with OneDrive Site folders over WiFi; service writer accesses SharePoint through browser and creates read-only …

Hi,
I am using Access 2013, SharePoint 2013. I have an excel file that is auto-rewritten every morning. I then link that Excel file to Access and query the data since it is not in a very clear format. The Access query for this is "WISE_IMRQ_Filtered". Within the same database "WISE_IMRQ" I have another Access table "WISE-IMRQ" that is linked to SharePoint. Both Access tables are formatted the same and I am looking for VBA to copy the "WISE_IMRQ_Filtered" table and paste (overwrite the previous) it into the "WISE_IMRQ" table, BUT still maintain the link to SharePoint so that everything is updated daily. Thanks for any help.

I am trying to install Sharepoint 2016 and have just been running into issue after issue. I have tried all suggested solutions available but have had no luck. Any clue why this is happning? The prerequisite installer (such a terrible and useless tool IMO) failed to install anything during the prerequisite installation process so I had to install the prerequisites manually. I tried reinstalling WCF data services 5.6 tools using the prerequisite installer in command line with the correct parameters and had no luck. I have tried reinstalling the .net 4.6.2 framework as well.

I am running a fresh install of Windows Server 2012 R2 and the database server is running Microsoft SQL Server 2014

Here is the error:

One or more configuration settings failed. Completed configuration settings will not be rolled back. resolve the problem and run this configuration wizard again. The following contains detailed information about the failure.

Failed to create the configuration database.

An exception of type Microsoft.Sharepoint.Upgrade.SPUpgradeException was thrown. Additional exception information: One or more types failed to load. Please refer to the upgrade log for more details.

I have also attached the error log. Any suggestions?

Sharepoint version is : 2013 Enterprise server with SP1  15.0.4571.1502
Jquery versions tried : 1.5.2, 1.7.2, 1.10.2
 
jQuery deployed globally using THIS Method of deploying a delegate control.

Without the feature activated, sharepoint works perfectly as expected in every aspect.  Activate the feature, so that jQuery is loded on the page, and sharepoint does all kind of weird things like...
Go to feature management and you can no longer deactivate any feature.

f12 into browser debug mode and the reult of just activating the jQuery feature and then refreshing the page casues all of the following...

chrome console log of errors
Google has been of little help and I have given up banging my head for one day.  Anybody have any clues?

P.S.
This is also the exact same result if I just create a new master page and add a link to the jQuery via the  <!--SPM:<SharePoint:CustomJSUrl runat="server"/>-->  method.

Hello,

I have added a secondary admin account for My Sites (OneDrive for Business) in SharePoint Online / Office 365.
I need this account to be able to see and sync the files from another user account.
So I have enabled the secondary admin role but I am not able to see the user's files nor editing the library permissions logged in as the secondary administrator.
I guess that enabling the secondary admin only applies for newly created accounts ?
Do you know how I could apply the secondary admin right to an older user account in SharePoint Online ?
(in a simple / manual process).

Thank you.

Hey guys,
I have a client who is using Office 365 SharePoint online.  They want to know if there is a way to see who currently has a file open.  I have reached out to Microsoft Support about this and Microsoft themselves does not have a solution for this, but I was given some third party tools to try, but they did not seem to help.  I am wondering if anyone here has any ideas.  Thanks

Dear All,

I am looking into building a SharePoint form on Sharepoint 2013 which I will be able to split across different pages (e.g. like one would have done with jQuery if he was building it as a web page) and form validation on submission (again, along the same lines that jQuery plugins offer this functionality in the case of web applications).

Could someone please provide any pointers to resources that could be of use (old programmer, but new to SharePoint)?

Regards,
George

One of my users accidentally deleted 2 items in a sharepoint document library, when he tried to restore them in sharepoint recycle bin he gets a correlation ID. We tried to restore older deleted items and got getting the same error newly deleted items seem to work though when restoring it.

NOTE:
Tried to use different computer and browsers
Sharepoint library is not synced in onedrive so I can't restore it from the local recycle bin

Is there a powershell comand that can restore these items?

I need to build a set of 1 or more InfoPath documents based upon some business criteria going against a related list of recipients of the document.

I have it working using the following function.  Part of the process of building the function is to copy a base (template) XML file down from the document library, turn it into a string with one or more parameters that I insert into that string, and then write the string to content object, upload to the library and then the XML file is available and loads in InfoPath within a browser.

The form has a repeating table which if I populate the form with, the function fails after I take that XML file and use it as the template in my function.

Code follows with abbreviated XML variable as it is too long:
	 function createFile(pParam1, pParam2) {
		var clientContext;
		var oWebsite;
		var oList;
		var fileCreateInfo;
		var fileContent;
		
		var sfileName = "FileNamePrefix_" + pParam1 + "_.xml";
						
		try{
			clientContext = new SP.ClientContext.get_current();
			oWebsite = clientContext.get_web();
			oList = oWebsite.get_lists().getByTitle("RecType SubType");   
			
			var FoundFile = CheckForDoc(sfileName, false);
			var newTemplate = 
			'\n<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><?mso-infoPathSolution name="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:infopath:RecType-Audits:-myXSD-2017-07-01T00-23-25" solutionVersion="1.0.0.502" productVersion="16.0.0.0" PIVersion="1.0.0.0"

Seem to be missing a step.
I have installed the SMTP service on the CA server and ensured that the service is running and set to automatic.
I have gone into my document library and enabled incoming email.
The email address shows the correct domain so I set the mailbox name to emailMe - email.mydomain.com and clicked ok.

Now I go to Outlook and I type the email address into a new email and instantly outlook is telling me that it won't be delivered as the recipient is not valid.
SharePoint 2013 and Exchange 2013 are both hosted in house on the domain and outgoing mail from sharepoint (e.g. alerts works fine).
What step am I missing - how does sharepoint tell exchange to add this address and where to relay it to?

We have a situation where we would like to copy a particular folder/excel from an automated job to a SharePoint Extranet library.

Normally for Intranet sites I just map the SharePoint Library with a mapped drive and the automated job copies automatically to that library.

When I try to map a drive with a Extranet site I receive an error windows cannot access path check for spelling (I just copied and paste the Extranet URL).

Any ideas?

Hello,
Did someone succeed in installing MS Project Server 2007 on Windows Server 2008 x86 or x64?
Which SQL Server version is required for SharePoint Services 3.0?
Could someone provide me with the reference, where to get step by step installation and configuration guide?
I need exactly Project Server 2007, not 2010 or newer.
Thank you in advance,

I'm about to start working on a database to be used by our staff and County/Municipal officials.  Is there a way to consume an Access database online?  Or will I have to just place it somewhere for download?  We have Sharepoint and MS 365.  Would it be easier to create a database to share with Sharepoint?  If so, I'm not very familiar with Sharepoint tables and would love some video or tutorial resources.  Thank you!

I have a form that is used to input to a sharepoint 2013 list. I wanted to add the following code to put an "attachment" control on the form as the ribbon will be hidden:

<tr>
     <td>
        <H3>
         Attach File
        </H3>
       </td>
</tr>
<tr>
     </td>
     <td>
         <span dir="ltr">
             <input type="file" name="fileupload0" id="onetidIOFile" size="56" title="Name" />
         </span>
     </td>
</tr>
     <td>
         <input id="attachOKbutton" type="BUTTON" onclick='OkAttach()' value="Upload" style="width: 12.8em; height: 3em"/>
     </td>
</tr>

The controls appear when putting this code into the script editor snippet. But now the page has about 3-4 inches of empty space at the top and I cannot figure out what, if anything in my  code is causing it. I have verified Zone numbering is correct (3 web parts so 0-2) and tinkered with the dimensions of the code listed above.

please help!
