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.

I have a subsite which consists of a document library called 'Pages' which has around 60 site pages in it. Now, I want to copy these pages to another site collection.

How to copy them to another site collection. Will all the content will be preserved or not when we copy? What about if there are any webparts??

I tried to do it but I get an error 'Page layout' error.

Please can anyone help me out???

Thanks

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'm using OneNote mobile for iOS to connect to my SharePoint Foundation on premise server...  It seems every few hours if not less I have to go into a page and/or a note... And wait for the tap to enter in password prompt to appear.  I simply tap it and it auto logs me in, however, I would like for the timeout to not exist or to take a long time.  How can I adjust this?

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!

Running Vmware in VMware?

We have a physical machine that runs VMware and hosts a VM we use for SharePoint deployment testing. That machine is old and dying, and my employer's network czars are heavily pushing hosted VMs as a replacement for outdated physical servers. I was curious about whether it's possible to run VMware inside VMware, and if so, whether there are severe performance implications. We don't require extreme performance from this setup, since it's just used for SharePoint testing and the associated SQL Server is on a different box. My guess is that we can't just use the primary hosted VM for our testing because we'll want to roll back occasionally and otherwise have more control over it, and getting buy-in for that from the network folks is unlikely. Does anyone have any experience with this?

I just bought a 6 Lenovo ThinkPad computers.  When I try to log into SharePoint Online on any of them, it will not load.  It just spins and says "Working".   I can go to portal.microsoftonline.com and log into mail and all of the other applications, but SharePoint and OneDrive will not load on these 6 Lenovo computers.  I've tried in Edge and IE - same problem.

If I log in on any other computer with the same credentials, everything works fine.  What could be stopping SharePoint and OneDrive from loading on these new computers?

I need to get these to new users ASAP.  Any ideas?

I am trying to figure out a simple out of the box way to filter a SharePoint lookup column based on another field's value.  Ideally, I would like three lists.  List 1 will be a list of employee names (one column, EmployeeName).  List 2 will be a list of dates that the employee is scheduled to wor (two columns, Date and EmployeeName (lookup from List1).  List 2 would be filled out several weeks into the future to schedule the employees.

In List 3, will be party information with several columns, including EventDate and EmployeeName.  I need EmployeeName to only show those employees that have dates that match the EventDate selected in the form.  These are employees that work that day and only those employees should be available to select in the List 3 form.

Is this possible?

I have an InfoPath form with a repeating table which has a dropdown.  I can add rows and set different values per row dropdown and save and reload the xml document and the rows and values are there.

I need to be able to do three things with the repeating table:
Read the rows and specifically the value of the dropdown
Add rows and set the value of the dropdown
Modify a row and set its value of the dropdown

I need to do all this within a Nintex Workflow.

Please advise.

Hey Experts.  Going to need your expertise on this one.

I have a Windows 2012 r2 virtual server (VMWare) with SP foundation 2013 running on it.  We have 200+ users in a domain/network environment that access the single SP server.  One morning about 4 weeks ago, the users reported they were unable to get to the SP home page.  They received this instead:

SP Error page
I restarted the SP server and the users were able to get to the SP site.  Next day, same thing.  Users reported they couldn't access the home page, same error message and I restarted the server which resolved.  Following day, users reported the same error except this time, I didn't restart the server.  I restarted the SP Tracing Service (I don't remember why I picked that service now) but once I did, the users could access the home page.

Now every morning I have to manually restart that service.  I don't know what causes the service to hang and bring the server to an almost unusable state.  It happens between midnight-1am and I've looked through every scheduled task and can't find anything in that time.  I've disabled every Windows task, even the "send MS anonymous feedback" tasks.  What else does that service touch that would cause it to go rogue?  

I can't set a scheduled task at 6am or 7am to stop and start the service as the server is so consumed it won't run the task.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!!  Thank you in advanced.
