Hi

We have Windows 2012 Domain Controllers and windows 10 workstations on our network. We have gone with 0365 and we are going to use SharePoint online and our active directory gets synced with Azure AD.
We have 100 staff and I would like to create a security group called “All Staff group” and would like to give permissions to this group to access the resources.
Firstly, do I need to create a Universal -Security group OR Global- Security group?
Secondly, after creating this group, do I need to add all the 100 staff to this group?
Thirdly, do i need to add any values in the attributes?

Any tutorials  and help much appreciated.
Thanks

If I setup a retention policy in SharePoint that moves all files in a folder to archive after 5 years, what would happen if I deleted a file in that folder prior to those 5 years ending?  Would there be a warning message or would it deny me from deleting it?  Can I set it to prevent deletion during the retention period?

I have an internal sharepoint website (this site is internal only - NOT available from the web) that has been recreated in O365. I recently configured http redirect in IIS to simply point traffic for that internal server - to be redirected to https://CompanyName.sharepoint.com.

I now want to get rid of that server. I need to use internal AD DNS to:

1. Ensure any internal traffic to URL https://central.CompanyName.local (old internal site) will still be pointed to https://CompanyName.sharepoint.com (for anyone that's still using the old URL to access the new O365 site).

2. Ensure any internal traffic to the new URL https://CompanyName.sharepoint.com is directed to that O365 site.

How can i configure DNS to do this?

Hi All,

Hope someone can help. Half way through a 2010-2013 SharePoint Migration. I have run the SPtest against the old database and it has come up with a few error. One of which being that reporting services is not configured. I have been looking at the guide here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/sql-server/install/install-reporting-services-sharepoint-mode-for-sharepoint-2013?view=sql-server-2014 

Which says the SQL feature needs installing before enabling within SharePoint, I have the install files for SQL 2014. When I run them I do not get the SharePoint reporting options, either when running a fresh sql install or adding new features.

What am I missing?

Cheers,
Paul

Sharepoint 2013 SP1, Virtualbox, Windows 2012 R2

I am trying to install SharePoint on Virtualbox for a testing area.  I have done this before successfully but I am having what appears to be a common problem (a google search provides hundreds of solutions).  The problem is getting the AppFabric installed as a prerequisite.  The prerequireinstaller fails with an error or states that the AppFabric step was skipped.

I have always good luck with EE for solving problems, so let me know what you have found to overcome this problem.  Let me know if you need more details

Thanks

SharePoint Lists,  MS Access and the 5000 record limit.

So I am very familiar with the 5000 list limit with SharePoint.   And my SP admin will not increase that threshold.  I understand because of the performance.
But here is the issue I am facing and it's odd.

So I have two list in SharePoint.  tbl_Parent_Inventory and tbl_Child_Inventory.  They were created in Access first, with a one to many relationship from the Parent to Child.  Then upsized to SP.  I reached the 5000 limit with the parent table and it would not allow changes in the child inventory.  Which has not reached the 5000 limit.

I also have one other list, tblAuditTrail.  This list holds all the actions that have been performed on all the forms.  There is 24,000 records there.  I have no issue viewing these records in Access.  All 24,000 show up.  I can make changes to them and I can add more.  I can see all the records in the other two tables.  But I can not make changes.

So my thinking is the relationship between the two tables is the issue.  But I am not sure.  Has anyone else encountered this before and if so how did you overcome it.

I've got the PeoplePicker from https://www.c-sharpcorner.com/article/pnp-people-picker-control-for-spfx/ to work.
Now I'd like to add other controls like labels, textboxes and drop downs to populate the other fields in my Sharepoint list.
How do I do this?
Below is my render method which includes a label, textbox and default button.  I don't know how to update the Sharepoint lists with what is in the textbox when I press the default button?  The People Picker works.

public render(): React.ReactElement<IPnPPeoplePickerProps> 
  
  {
    const txtFirstName = getId('anInput');
    return (
      <div className={ styles.pnPPeoplePicker }>
        <div className={ styles.container }>
          <div className={ styles.row }>
            <div className={ styles.column }>
              <span className={ styles.title }>Welcome to SharePoint!</span>
              <p className={ styles.subTitle }>Customize SharePoint experiences using Web Parts.</p>
              
              <div>
              <Label required={true}>I'm a required Label</Label>
              <Label htmlFor={txtFirstName}>A Label for An Input</Label>
              <TextField id={txtFirstName} />
              </div>

              <PeoplePicker
                context={this.props.context}
                titleText="People Picker"
                personSelectionLimit={3}
                groupName={""} // Leave this blank in case you want to filter from all users
                showtooltip={true}

SharePoint 2013 On-Premise

We have a user showing all content on one one side (in a column) of the page when opening a Team Site.  We are looking for a way to reset the page.    The links on the page continue to work but the page is not formatted correctly.

We have tried 3 different browsers, clearing the cache but this formatting issue continues.  This only happens for this user, all other 400 users see the page correctly.

Thanks

I have put the zip file from https://www.c-sharpcorner.com/article/pnp-people-picker-control-for-spfx/ into a webpart (after unzipping it). I'm trying to update my Sharepoint list.

With the PersonName field (Set as Person or Group in Sharepoint online) commented out it works. However when the PersonName field is not commented out it fails with this message. I followed the import instructions, but was wondering if my node modules directory is incorrect or if there is a difference between the Sharepoint used and my version of sharepoint online.

```
  @autobind 
 private addSelectedUsers(): void {  
 sp.web.lists.getByTitle("AlistairTest").items.add({
  Title: getGUID(),
  //With these lines commented out it works.  I changed the field name from User to PersonName when 
  //I created the column.
  PersonName: { 
      results: this.state.addUsers
  }
   }).then(i => {
    console.log(i);
   });
} 
```

Hi, any help with this enigma! would be much appreciated. I am using SharePoint 2016 on-prem,,,,,

ISSUE:
I have created a new SharePoint list and would like to use an an internal URL in a SharePoint hyperlink column control. The Internal URL loads a client-side program. Unfortunately, the hyperlink control insists on the https:// to be present. The internal URL does not require http:// or https://.  See image of the internal URL .

Sharepoint-Hyperlink-column.png
I have tried using a new 'single line of text' column and the Edit Source option to add a <a href> tag to create a hyperlink for the internal URL and some javascript. Again, SharePoint strips out the code leaving a dud hyperlink.

Is there a column / setting that allows a URL without the https:// OR is there a way of using the SharePoint hyperlink column initially with the https:// and then (via code) when the hyperlink is clicked on the https:// is ignored / removed and the Internal URL is just read?

Thanks in advance.

Hi All,

Currently looking at a SharePoint 2010 to 2013 migration. I am following a few guides available on the Internet. Quick question. On the guide that I am following here: https://www.sharepointdiary.com/2013/09/migrate-from-sharepoint-2010-to-2013-step-by-step.html

I am assuming when it says to setup the new site as per the old site, I use a different URL when first setting up the new site? Secondly I am also assuming before I restore the database etc I need to setup the Kerberos SPN etc as per here: https://www.c-sharpcorner.com/article/configuring-kerberos-authentication-on-share-point-2013-2016-web-application/

Please feel free to let me know if I am missing anything or if there are better guides / methods to complete this. What we want is to be able to move to SharePoint 2013 on a new server whilst the old one is live Once happy, turn the old one off and use the new one. I don't mind telling our users to use a different url to point to the new one once all is well.

Cheers,
Paul

Hi,
We need to export members of a SharePoint user group to a text file on a schedule. I found below sites with a script that can do that.
(http://sharepoint-works.blogspot.com/2013/01/export-sharepoint-group-to-excel-using.html)
(https://chaddtalks.wordpress.com/2015/10/05/export-a-list-of-users-from-a-specific-sharepoint-group/)

$SiteUrl="https://portal.site.com";
$GroupName="Site Members";
$Output = @("GroupName|Name|Login|Email|Department|Title")
$web = Get-SPWeb $siteUrl
$site = $web.Site
$rootWeb = $site.RootWeb
$UserList = $rootWeb.Lists["User Information List"]
$web.SiteGroups[$groupName].Users|%{$user = $UserList.GetItemById($_.ID)
if($user -ne $null)
{
$JobTitle = $user["JobTitle"]
$Department = $user["Department"]
}
$Output += ($groupName+"|"+$_.Name+"|"+$_.UserLogin+"|"+$_.Email+"|"+$Department +"|"+$JobTitle)
}
$rootWeb.Dispose()
$web.Dispose()
$site.Dispose()
$Output > "GroupMembers.csv"


When I run the script , it dumps the users to csv file but I'm getting a bunch of below errors. Is there a way to fix the script so it won't have these errors?

You cannot call a method on a null-valued expression.
At C:\export.ps1:9 char:37
+ $web.SiteGroups[$groupName].Users|%{$user = $UserList.GetItemById($_.ID)
+                                     ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo          : InvalidOperation: (:) [], RuntimeException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : InvokeMethodOnNull

Thank you.

Hi All,

We currently are running SharePoint 2010 Foundation on a Win 2008 R2 server. At minimum we would want to move to SharePoint 2013 Foundation on a Windows 2012 Server. I believe their is no SharePoint 2016 foundation available?

Assuming we cant go to 2016 without buying the full version, what is the process to move our data setup from our old server onto the new 2013 one. (If we can go to 2016 how do we do this?)

Are there alternative options that I haven't mentioned?

Cheers,
Paul
