After installing SharePoint Foundation 2010 SP1… (missing PSConfig run)

(SharePoint Foundation Search (Event ID: 70; Category: Gatherer))

Launch an elevated (Run as Administrator) SharePoint 2010 Management shell from start, All Programs, Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Products, SharePoint 2010 Management Shell.

Run: (get-spserver $env:computername).NeedsUpgrade

If the result of this command is True:

1. Open an Administrative command prompt.
2. Change directory to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\BIN
3. Run PSConfig.exe -cmd upgrade -inplace b2b -force -cmd applicationcontent -install -cmd installfeatures

Relatively time consuming, not to panic …

Sharepoint: hide the infopath form banner “Powered by infopath form services”

After the publishing the infopath form in the SharePoint, you will find a banner called “Powered by infopath form services“.

Remove banner:

stsadm.exe -o setformserviceproperty -pn allowbranding -pv false

Add banner:

stsadm.exe -o setformserviceproperty -pn allowbranding -pv true

To check:

stsadm.exe -o getformserviceproperty -pn allowbranding

Configure Sharepoint 2010 MP in Operations Manager 2007 R2

  • Import the SharePoint MP’s
  • Create an account just for the purpose of monitoring the SharePoint solution (in AD)
  • Now with our new account create with only Domain User rights we can go to the SharePoint 2010 Central Administration Site
  • We need to add this account into Ops Mgr RunAs Accounts for the next stage in the configuration of the SharePoint MP. I have given it this display name because it is the default name that Microsoft use in the next phase
  • Move the SharePointMP.config file from “C:\Program Files (x86)\System Center Management Packs\Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Products OpsMgr 2007 MP en-us” and move it to “ C:\Program Files\System Center Management Packs”
  • Then we need we need to add our SharePoint detail into the SharePointMP.config file, I left the Association Account the same but under the Machine Name. When you have entered the SharePoint Server Names then close and save the changes.

Problematic part:

In the SharepointMP.Config file:

  <Association Account="SharePoint Discovery/Monitoring Account" Type="Agent">
    <Machine Name="" />

SharePoint Discovery/Monitoring Account ->This is not the account name, but the account’s display name!

Sharepoint Foundation or Server 2010 error: 2137 (event ID)

If you are installing a new organ Sharepoint 2010 farm, be sure to update the other server patch level (preferably in exactly that way!). However, even if you get an error (Event ID: 2137), that need some update.
Unlike the description, is not always sufficient to psconfigui.exe running. In this case, issue the following command:

PSConfig.exe -cmd upgrade -inplace b2b -force -cmd applicationcontent -install -cmd installfeatures

You should specify C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\BIN directory issue 😉

Farm Passphrase reset in SharePoint 2010

Enter at the PowerShell prompt (Start > All Programs > Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Products > SharePoint 2010 Management Shell):

$passphrase = ConvertTo-SecureString -asPlainText -Force
Set-SPPassPhrase -PassPhrase $passphrase -Confirm

(Of course, the password immediately after you close the PowerShell I found … 🙂 )
