Download the Server Pack

List of adressed issues. (Excel)

SharePoint Data Migration Toolkit 1.0

SharePoint Data Migration Toolkit 1.0

The new Version of the PowerShell Content Deployment codeplex project has been released.

This solution is the only way to implement incremental content deployment, without having to transfer the whole site collection!

It also supports content deployment across two different SharePoint versions. (SharePoint2010 / SharePoint 2013)

Check out the latest Version.

 

I have created a tool for Content Deployment between two SharePoint Farms.
By using the switch OverrideSchemaVersion it is also possible to deploy content from SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2013.

Its made of PowerShell Scripts and XML.

Of course there are other tools already on the market, but with this Solution you are able to “Copy” only the list, without being forced to Copy the whole SiteCollection.

It is also possible to establish a content deployment scenario with having different Farm Versions/Patch Levels and Feature sets in the Source VS. Destination.

This tool makes it possible to implement an incremental content deployment szenario for SharePoint Lists between two distinct Farms

Features

  • SharePoint2010->SharePoint2013 migration
  • Full migration
  • Incremental migration
  • Transfering original metadata : Created,CreatedBy,Modified,ModifiedBy
  • Lookup column support
  • Support for disconnected scenarios (2 different Farms Intern vs Extern)
  • Transfering UserInformation from external Users, even if they do not exists in the destination Farm (e.g. FBA and internal Intranet)

Installation

  • Each Farm needs a own copy of the scripts.
  • Both Farms share the same storage and export/import history file

 

 

User property check – help yourself script

User property check – help yourself script

Get-UserProfiles – Get your own user profile report

Ever wanted to check  your profile store in terms of usage or correct data for a specific property in all profiles?

Download this tiny script to accomplish your mission.

.\Get-UserProfiles.ps1 -PropertyConstant [PropertyConstant]

[Download]

Check this site for all OOB Property Constants http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/microsoft.office.server.userprofiles.propertyconstants_fields.aspx

The script needs to be run – of course on a server that is part of the Farm where your User Profile Service sits on.

Sharepoint Content Deployment with PowerShell

I have created a Tool for Content Deployment between two SharePoint Farms.

 

Here is the Link to the Tool.

Changing quota of a site

Changing quota of a site

I wrote a script for all those who want an easy and safe way to change the quota of a site.

[Download]
.\AdjustSiteQuota.ps1 -Identity [$url] -Percentage [1-1000]

Its very simple… just suppy the url and the percentage how the new values for StorageWarningLevel and StorageMaximumLevel should be adjusted.

Iagine if  you want to decrease the quota of a site by 50%, jsut supply 50 as parameter, let me give some examples.

 

I want to increase the site quota for a (mysite http://mysite/personal/themysite) by 20%

Command: .\AdjustSiteQuota.ps1 -Identity "http://mysite/personal/themysite" -Percentage 120

 

I want to decrease the site quota for a (mysite http://mysite/personal/themysite) by 50%

Command: .\AdjustSiteQuota.ps1 -Identity "http://mysite/personal/themysite" -Percentage 50

See the script in action…

Enjoy and comment if you have an idea or found an bug.

[2011-01] Backup and Recovery – Alles in sicheren Händen

[2011-01] Backup and Recovery – Alles in sicheren Händen

Wer kennt noch die SharePoint-2007-Backup-and-Recovery-Oberfläche der Zentraladministration?

Ohne Umschweife konnte jeder sofort erkennen „Alles klar, das wird dazugekauft“.

Eine ziemlich ernüchternde Angelegenheit.

Mit dem neuen SharePoint Server 2010 und mit Unterstützung von entsprechenden Cmdlets für die PowerShell-Konsole geht das Sichern und Wiederherstellen der Farm oder auch von Teilaspekten davon für den Einsteiger und Fortgeschrittenen gut von der Hand.

[2011-04] Das erste Service Pack für den SharePoint Server 2010

[2011-04] Das erste Service Pack für den SharePoint Server 2010

Das erste Service Pack für SharePoint behebt Fehler und adressiert gleichzeitig lang ersehnte Funktionalitäten.

Beispielsweise landet eine gelöschte Website zuerst im Papierkorb und kann durch den Endanwender wieder geholt werden, früher musste man bei der IT-Abteilung vorstellig werden und dann auch noch genau erklären, wie es dazu kam.

[2010-04] Visualisierung des System Center Operations Manager mit den Visio-Services

Microsoft Visio ist ein nützliches Werkzeug, um Abläufe, Prozesse, Statistiken oder IT Landschaften visuell darzustellen.

Solche Zeichnungen schmücken die Wände so mancher IT Büros.

Immer häufiger wandern diese Visio Zeichnungen – meist umgewandelt als Grafik und eingebettet in eine HTML-Seite, ins Intra- oder Extranet.

Alles schön und gut, aber in Microsoft Visio steckt noch viel mehr – Wir sind erst am Anfang einer neuen spannenden Geschichte.

[2010-03] Access 2010 und SharePoint 2010 mit den Access Services

[2010-03] Access 2010 und SharePoint 2010 mit den Access Services

Microsoft hat mit dem SharePoint-Server-2010-Release die Messlatte noch einmal nach oben gesetzt.

Schon in der Beta 2 konnte vieles angesehen und getestet werden.

Fast alle Funktionen liefen fehlerfrei. Die Erfahrungen von Partnern, Testern und früh eingebundenen Kunden haben dazu beigetragen, dass dieses Produkt in Sachen Bedienbarkeit und Funktionalität große Schritte gemacht hat.
