SharePoint 2010 Servicve Accounts and Windows Server 2008 R2

clock July 23, 2010 18:16 by author Robi

Yesterday, I was was installing SharePoint Server 2010 at one of our clients and after the install I was getting this errors:

User Profile Service Event ID 1511. It says that account could not log on to the computer and create a profile.

After a little bit of research, I found out that all you have to do is edit a local group policy and than run a cmd and all of these errors are gone.

So run a "gpedit.msc" on your WFE where you are getting these errors and go to Computer Configuration/Windows Settings/Security Settings/Local Policies/User Rights Assigneements and Search for Allow log on Locally

Add the account for which you are getting errors. Then, start command prompt and run a command:

 runas /user:kompas-xnet\sp_apppool cmd

 Type the password and if you go to your users folder you should see a folder with your service account name.

You can now remove Allow log on locally permission for the account.

Stop or start all SharePoint 2010 Services

clock July 3, 2010 00:37 by author Robi

During a maintainance of my computer I needed to stop all SharePoint 2010 services. So I was wondering what is the easiest way to do it. In Central Admin, you could do it an click on every service and stop it, but it takes a lot of time. So I was considering some other options and certainly decided that you could do it with a PowerShell script. So here it is:


foreach ($service in $services) {stop-SPServiceInstance -Identity $service -confirm:$false}


foreach ($service in $services) {start-SPServiceInstance -Identity $service}


Dealing with Error 404 on IIS7 using ASP.NET Routing

clock June 15, 2010 18:06 by author Klemen Slavič

When you're deploying an ASP.NET website that uses the new Routing feature from MVC, you might run into a problem mapping the routes in Integrated mode. The documentation states that using Integrated mode on IIS7 doesn't entail any extra configuration, but in the odd case it does (throwing Error 404 on routed URLs but not .aspx paths), you can open up your web.config file and modify your <system.webServer> / <modules> tag:


... to something like this:

<modules runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests="true">

Or, if you're not using modules, just put an empty tag within <system.webServer>:

<modules runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests="true" />

That forces IIS7 to always run all loaded web server modules, including URL Routing (inherited from the 4.0 application pool).

Create Custom Site Definition

clock June 10, 2010 00:02 by author Robi


In this post I'm going to explain how to create custom site definition in SharePoint 2010.

First of all, you can copy or create your own custom site definition in this folder and rename it to what ever you like:


Next, you have to create a XML file, where you define which template to use, what the title o your definition is going to be and which icon you are going to use. in the next 2 pictures you are going to see the path and the code you have to insert in this XML file.

when you are done, you have to do an IISRESET and then you are good to go with your custom Site Definition.
