Fab 40 Templates for MOSS 2010

Fab 40 templates were free templates released by Microsoft for sharepoint 2007 and wss 3.0 to address some of the common scenarios encountered by SharePoint administrators, developers and event business/Marketing managers to demonstrate and show case some of the capabilities of MOSS to end users.

Discussion about that how good these templates are and in which scenario these are more helpful versus things which needs to be improved in these templates is a separate topic but I have noticed many SharePoint people using these templates either for small clients , for demonstration purpose and even for training purposes etc. ..

I have uploaded some of these Fab 40 templates for SP 2010, so now you can have Fab 40 for SP 2010, at least some of these are available for now…rest coming soon J .

Configure Core Infra for Multi-Tenant Scenario

This script configures the base sharepoint requirements for a multi-tenant sceanrio as detailed at http://www.harbar.net/articles/sp2010mt4.aspx

It creates and configures Managed Accounts, Application Pools, core Service Applications and a hosting Web Application and Managed Paths.

Configure Core Infra for Multi-Tenant Scenario

Rational Guide to Multi Tenancy with SharePoint 2010


So what is Multi-Tenancy? In a word, it’s Hosting! A unique deployment for each customer on a shared set of infrastructure resources. The most common scenarios are

  • “Traditional” Web Hosting Environments
  • SharePoint Online
  • Corporate On Premise Deployments

The last one here is interesting, there are a number of aspects which we will cover later which make multi-tenant an often requested and compelling deployment approach for large corporate on premise deployments.

A good analogy here is a flat or apartment building. In this real world case, multiple tenants share the same infrastructure (the building, the doors etc). In addition some services are shared but have no data (entry phone, refuse collection). Some other services are shared (electricity, telephone) and have data which should be partitioned (meter readings, billing). Some other services are a free for all (car parking).

See more about :

Issues that this hotfix package fixes for SP2010
  • A SharePoint Server 2010 administrator cannot configure the build-in Social Security Trimmer per Tenant.
  • On a Office SharePoint Server farm which has multiple Web Front Ends (WFEs), term store management UI shows inconsistent data.
  • Initiation for new tenant is slow in the SharePoint Online farm that has large amount of existing taxonomy data.
  • This hotfix changes the behavior of My Site Cleanup Timer Job to handle the case when a user has no manager.
  • When you create a search scope by using FAST Search, you have to have a scope filter that matches the scope rules attached to the search scope. However, the scope filter is empty and must be set manually by using PowerShell when you create a new search scope.
  • You cannot manage FAST user contexts if you do not have administrative credentials to SharePoint User Profile Service. By using this hotfix package, you can manage FAST user contexts even though you are not User Profile Service administrator.
  • ---------------------------------------------

Issues that this hotfix package fixes SPF2010
  • When you click Sign In as Different User to sign in by using new user credentials, you cannot access the expected resource.
  • You cannot create a recurring calendar entry on a site that is created from a custom template.
  • This fix adds a new health rule. This rule can inform an administrator whether the Business Connectivity Service (BCS) connectors are enabled or disabled in Microsoft SharePoint 2010. Therefore, the administrator can monitor the status of the BCS connectors.
  • You add a large amount of content to a client notebook on a Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2010 server that is under heavy load. After some time, the notebook is no longer synchronous with the server and you cannot save changes to the server. Additionally, you may receive the following error message:

    Unable to save

  • Anonymous users cannot use Language Integrated Query (LINQ) to query data in Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2010. Additionally, the anonymous users are prompted for user credentials when they use LINQ to query data.
  • Consider the following scenario. You change the site level permission on a Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2010 site. Then, you change some property of the site. In this scenario, the sitedata.asmx.GetChanges() web service method does not report the security change.
  • The external content type name appears in the external list edit form if the optional field value is not present. Therefore, you cannot save the external list item successfully.
  • The CopyIntoItems method in the Copy.asmx web servicedoes not assign the custom content type when you upload a file from the file system. Instead, it always assigns the default content type.
  • When you click the Open this Task button in Microsoft Outlook, you cannot open the workflow task form from the notification email in Microsoft Outlook.
  • Consider the following scenario. In Microsoft SharePoint Designer, you apply Extensible Stylesheet Language (XSL) to a view that contains a link field. Then, you add a Universal Name Convention (UNC) link that contains non-ASCII characters to the field. In this scenario, the link is broken when you open it.
  • In the Turkish version of Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010, you click the Help icon and you try to use the search function. However, the search function does not work.
  • When you delete old versions of documents that contain web parts, spaces for the old versions in Microsoft SQL Server are not reclaimed.
  • When you upload a picture in the CMYK pixel format to an asset library, the upload is completed successfully and you see a thumbnail in the asset library. However, when you hover the mouse pointer over the thumbnail, the preview window does not show the picture in Windows Internet Explorer.
  • In sandbox solutions, Partially Trusted Code (PTC) usage decreases when the number of max processes per application server increases.
  • When you save a team site as a template, the web part that is used in the original site does not carry the correct view to the newly created site.
  • This fix adds support for both HTTP-based host-named site collections and HTTPS-based host-named site collections to coexist in the same web application. By default this support is disabled. To enable this support, set the
    Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPWebService.ContentService.EnableHostHeaderSiteBasedSchemeSelection property to true. As soon as it is enabled, SharePoint will no longer use the web application's default zone public URL protocol scheme for all host-named site collections in that web application. Instead, SharePoint will use the protocol scheme provided during host-named site collection creation, restoration, or rename. Host-named site collections that are created before this update is installed will default to use the HTTP protocol scheme if this property is set to true. These site collections can be switched to use the HTTPS protocol scheme by renaming the host-named site collection and providing an HTTPS-based URL as the new site collection URL.
  • Consider the following scenario. You delete a picture library item. Then, you restore the item from the Recycle Bin and then delete the item again. In this scenario, you receive the following error message:

    Violation of PRIMARY KEY constraint '<KeyName>'. Cannot insert duplicate key in object '<ObjectName>'. The statement has been terminated.

  • This fix improves the performance of migration time for users across all sites.

Training : Productivity Hub 2010


Microsoft has developed the Productivity Hub to help support your ongoing end user training efforts.
The Hub is a SharePoint Server site collection for 2007 and 2010 that serves as a learning community and is fully customizable. It provides a central place for your training efforts, and includes training content from Microsoft’s core products. Microsoft also provides ongoing and updated content packs.
The Hub uses SharePoint Server’s social networking capabilities, such as blogs and discussion groups. In addition, it offers the Coach program, a change management feature to help you train end users to self-help, reducing the burden on your training and IT staff. The Coach program impacts productivity in a collaborative and positive way.
The 2010 version of the Productivity Hub includes a quiz feature, a section called ‘Get it Done’ that offers training for tasks such as email management and collaboration, and also features Silverlight. There will be a non-Silverlight version of the 2010 Hub delivered in late June.
The 2007 Hub contains 2007 content only (v2) with 2010 content added in v3 (to be released in June 2010). You can also add 2010 content packages to your current Hub. Watch for more document on migration from your 2007 Hub to your 2010 Hub.
What the Productivity Hub is:

  • Format: Pre-loaded SharePoint site collection, optimized for Web 2.0 functionality and easily deployed within SharePoint Server 2007 or SharePoint 2010 environment, depending on version
  • Content: Convenient end user productivity training in a variety of formats (documents, videos, podcasts, etc.). Receive free quarterly updates of content that you will learn about through the Productivity blog.
  • Blog: The Productivity blog offers tips and tricks for end user productivity. Use it as is, or your training staff can use the posts as their own to help them get started in running an internal blog.
  • Train the trainer: Includes IT/Manager section to aid with deployment of the site collection, and guidance to develop the Coach program
  • Products: Office 2007 and Office 2010 (including SharePoint Server 2007 and SharePoint 2010), Windows 7 and Internet Explorer 8, Project, Visio, Live Meeting, and Communicator

You can also download additional content packages that expand the training materials you can make available through the Hub.
