AD User Account Creation–Script

I’m throwing this script out there for any developers or admins who are seeking a quick SharePoint focused script for user account creation. In my environment we’re working towards automated unattended install of SharePoint, including account creation. AutoSPInstaller is cool but it seems too complicated for me. Put another way, if I’m going to spend time learning I’m choosing to learn PowerShell and SharePoint in more detail. With that said, here is my script. This script could easily import from a CSV (or other file), read a SharePoint List, or any other...

Disable LoopBack Script - SharePoint

A friend of mine and I were discussing the topic of Disabling LoopBack and which is the better route to go when it comes to creating a new SharePoint 2013 farm. My perspective, when possible, abide by Microsoft’s recommendations. In this case Microsoft seems to take the classic “it depends” stance on disabling ye old loopback. Being me, I asked my self why not have both? After all I’m sure PowerShell could help out here. To those who know me or have read this blog; I’m not a developer and it probably shows in various...

Uploading Files to SharePoint using PowerShell

Today I had to fall in line and do something I’m not entirely proud of. I had to create a script to replicate files from a fileshare to Sharepoint. Struggling to find value in the efforts, I figured a blog post to remind me of this event was fitting. The script was rather basic, something good, and I took the opportunity to grow, exploring the world of Powershell – SharePoint interaction outside of the SharePoint PS SnapIn. Surprisingly, it was a bit easier than I had imagined. While I wish I could take 100% of the credit, inspiration for...

An Awesome SharePoint Migration Tool

As I prepare for our next SharePoint user group meeting, I have to take a moment to send out a shout of praise and thanks to the folks at Sharegate.  Thank You for making such a great migration tool, it's as your slogan indicates a "no brianer" For those of you not familiar with the Sharegate, I suggest you get that way. But first allow me to share some of the back story of how this blog post came to be. Rewind roughly six weeks ago, we (my co-workers) were in the middle of a SharePoint deployment where we came to the conclusion we would...

Productivity HUB RSS Feed

  Recently I had the opportunity to demo the SP1 edition of Microsoft's SharePoint Productivity Hub. The environment had CISCO's ScanSafe product doing some web filtering, which was causing my claims based app to return the error of ProtocolError occured trying to complete the request. The server returned a status code of : ProxyAuthenticationRequired and the status description is : "Proxy Authentication Denied" After a brief period of using Google for a quick fix I discovered one of two things. Either my search was down the wrong rabbit trail or there wasn’t much in the way of useful quick fix listed for Claims Apps. Giving...
