HowTo use Azure cmdlets in Azure Schedule

A Runbook schedule can be triggered every hour. If you need a smaller interval, like every minute, you can use the Azure Scheduler to do so. So I went to the Azure Portal, created an Azure Schedule instance (with a job collection tier of at least basic, to be able to create schedules that are triggered every minute) and called a Runbook via webhook. The Runbook contains a cmdlet that results in an error 🙁

Connection Problems to a Secure Service Fabric Cluster

To be able to connect to a secure Service Fabric Cluster via PowerShell, you need to import the certificate specified into your personal certificate store. Otherwise an Exception will be thrown. Unfortunately the Exception does not point into the right direction 🙁 So in case you get an Exception like this Connect-ServiceFabricCluster : An error occurred during this operation. Please check the trace logs for more details. At line:1 char:1

TLS with SharePoint

Almost exactly two years ago, I wrote a post about using TLS with SMTP. See Using TLS with SmtpClient If you’d like to send transport layer encrypted email with you SharePoint farm, you can do so by installing a .NET update and modifying the registry.

Widgets instead of Add-Ins/Apps?

The concept of Add-Ins (formally knows as Apps) in SharePoint puts logic as HTML and CSS to another page. This page is then rendered as iFrame to another SharePoint page. This approach has advantages and disadvantages. You have to decide yourself. A very promising way to put stuff (or WebParts) onto a SharePoint page is the Widget Wrangler. More information can be found on Conceptually Widget Wrangler implementation is based on similar thinking as PnP App Script Part implementation, which was released few years back as part of the PnP patterns (or at the time it was call App Model Samples).

Change in the User Resolution in SharePoint 2013 People Picker

After a SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2013 migration our users complained, that in the multiple Active Directory domain environment they havethe People Picker does not resolve the users the same way it did earlier. Only a subset of the users was resolved, users from a few domains were not included in the results at all. Read more about it here.

Fix “Access Denied” on Registry and Filesystem

Today I installed the May CU on a SharePoint 2013 farm hosted in Azure. After the Installation was done (with a PowerShell script that disables some services to speed up the process), there were Exceptions opening the User Profile Service (UPS) settings page. So I investigated the logs and found many entries about “Access Denied”. Some directly pointed to the registry hive “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office Server\15.0” with the message Requested registry access is not allowed.

Need users in your dev environment?

Often, you’ll need some users with data like picture and manager in your new development environment. Since you usually recycle your dev AD, this doesn’t happen frequently. But if you have to set up a new domain, you’ll want testusers with data. I don’t want to search again, because I found a great resource for creating users here: Have fun with PowerShell

Create the default groups via PowerShell

If your site is missing the three default groups “Visitors”, “Members” and “Owners”, you can create them easily with PowerShell or the Object Model. Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell $web = Get-SPWeb if ($web.AssociatedVisitorGroup -eq $null) { Write-Host 'The Visitor Group does not exist. It will be created...' -ForegroundColor DarkYellow $currentLogin = $web.CurrentUser.LoginName if ($web.CurrentUser.IsSiteAdmin -eq $false){ Write-Host ('The user '+$currentLogin+' needs to be a SiteCollection administrator, to create the default groups.') -ForegroundColor Red return } $web.
