SharePoint Custom Pop-up not posting back after first attempt.

This change was required for the SharePoint 2013 Upgrade (from SharePoint 2010), otherwise the page would only post back once and needed to be closed and re-opened to resubmit updates. The change was in private Control RenderHeaderBar()

var header2 = new HtmlGenericControl("h4");

string text2 = "Report ID:" + InspectionReportId + " GUID:" + InspectionReportGuid;

header2.InnerText = text2;

headerBox.Controls.Add(header2);

Authentication Failed because remote party has closed the transport stream

Found Here: .net - Authentication failed because remote party has closed the transport stream - Stack Overflow

I came across this issue when trying to send an e-mail to O365 via .NET C# code.

 

My Option is add the following Registry key:
Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\.NETFramework\v4.0.30319 
Value: SchUseStrongCrypto 

It is worth noting that .NET 4.6 will use the correct protocol by default and does not require either solution.

SharePoint 2013 images folder

Just as an FYI when moving from sharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2013. The images folder is now accessed via _layouts/15/images. SharePoint 2010 was just _layouts/images!

Since the move to SharePoint 2013 requires that every reference to the “Hive” be prefixed with 15, and 16 for SharePoint 2016 etc, I have moved all logos and references to images to reference the images in the Style Library of each Site collection so that they will not break with consequent upgrades.

SQL White Spaces

I found myself with an issue with SQL Data. I could not trim the data with the trailing white space. Only this worked!

  UPDATE tblPipeClasses
  SET PipeClass =  Replace(PipeClass, Char(160),'')

I also wrote this function in VBA

Public Function RemoveExtendedAsciiCharacters(strString As String) As String

    Dim intCount As Integer    

    For intCount = 128 To 255

        If InStr(1, strString, Chr(intCount)) > 0 Then

            strString = Replace(strString, Chr(intCount), "")

        End If

    Next intCount    

    RemoveExtendedAsciiCharacters = strString

End Function

 

SQL Server Logs are Full

In SQL Server 2012R2 I found that my Log files were always getting so big that they would fill the L drive. So I wrote a script that will Truncate all the Log files. You can also do this on each individual database by right clicking, select Shrink, then Files. Click OK. See below for more details.

Also Check this URL: What is the command to truncate a SQL Server log file? - Stack Overflow

In management studio:

  • Don't do this on a live environment, but to ensure you shrink your dev db as much as you can:
    • Right-click the database, choose Properties then Options
    • Make sure "Recovery model" is set to "Simple" not "Full"
    • Click OK
  • Right-click the database again, choose Tasks -> Shrink -> Files
  • Change file type to "Log"
  • Click OK.

Alternatively, the SQL to do it:

USE DatabaseName
ALTER
DATABASE DatabaseName SET RECOVERY SIMPLE
DBCC SHRINKFILE (DatabaseName_Log, 1)
ALTER DATABASE DatabaseName SET 
RECOVERY FULL

SharePoint 2013 Server Search status stuck on “Starting”

This was the fix.

  1. Open SharePoint PowerShell as Administrator
  2. Run this Get-SPServiceInstance -All > Get-SPServiceInstance.txt
    1. It will export all Services to the text file un C:\Users\[Username]\ Get-SPServiceInstance.txt
  3. Find the GUID for the Search Service. It was c0220b13-8093-4240-91e4-8427a68e8c0c
  4. Run the following 3 commands
  5. $value = Get-SPServiceInstance -Identity c0220b13-8093-4240-91e4-8427a68e8c0c
  6. $value.provision()
  7. $value.update()
  8. Reboot the SharePoint Server.
  9. Check that the Incremental Search has started!

Your system administrator does not allow the use of saved credentials to log on to the remote computer

From here: https://serverfault.com/questions/396722/your-system-administrator-does-not-allow-the-use-of-saved-credentials-to-log-on

If you don't want to change local or server side GPOs:

Go to Control Panel -> Credential Manager on the local computer you are trying to connect from.
You will see three sections:

  1. Windows Credentials
  2. Certificate-Based Credentials
  3. Generic Credentials

Remove the credentials from Windows Credentials and add it to Generic Credentials.
