Configure ULS log and Usage and Health log location


SharePoint jokers!

If you left the settings in SharePoint 2013 as default when installing and configuring, then you will probably have a log path that looks like this for both the ULS log and the Usage and Health log.
C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web Server Extensions\15\LOGS

If you want to change this to a new path, maybe on a different disk like D: (recommended) or on a simpler path easier to remember, use the following commands:

You will need to run the commands in a PowerShell running as administrator and you will also need to load the SharePoint snapin first, add-pssnapin.
add-pssnapin microsoft.sharepoint

For the Diagnostics log(ULS)
set-SPDiagnosticConfig -LogLocation “D:\Program Files\Common files\Microsoft shared\Web server extensions\15\LOGS”
or
set-SPDiagnosticConfig -LogLocation “D:\SharePoint Logs\ULS”

For the Usage and Health log
set-SPUsageService -UsageLogLocation “C:\Program Files\Common files\Microsoft shared\Web server extensions\15\LOGS”
or
set-SPUsageService -UsageLogLocation “D:\SharePoint Logs\Health”

set-SPDiagnosticConfig -LogLocation “C:\Program Files\Common files\Microsoft shared\Web server extensions\15\LOGS”

In my environment, the Diagnostics trace log path looks like this:
ULS2

ULS1

And for the Usage and Health log, it looks like this:

U&H2

U&H1

A quick guide to configuring the Loopback check


Update: A free tool is available that does all this for you in a GUI: Loopback Check configuration Tool released – free download

Hi dear friends!

401.1 Access denied…
If you try to access your newly created web application with a real nice FQDN or NetBIOS name and you end up getting a 401.1 Access denied…

Even after adding the site to the local intranet zone in IE…
Even after beeing prompted 3 times and filling in the correct credentials…
After setting up your Search to crawl you sites in a small farm whith crawl and web services on the same server…

You check and doublecheck your credentials, you add yourself as the farm admin, you try logging on with the farm account, but nothing…still 401.1…

I know this has been written about many times Before, but some things seem to still be missing…
Now everyone seems comfortable with the sparse description on how to ‘add hosts to the list’ which is pretty much what you do when configuring the loopback check the ‘secure way’. You can also disable the loopbackcheck completely, but why if there is no real reason. Read Spencer Harbars excellent post on the topic if you need explaining why this is so. It is a few years but it is still the truth!

The KB article 896861 for this is an old one and the title does not really tell you that this is the one you are looking for, ‘type the host name or the host names for the sites that are on the local  computer, and then click OK.’ is not crystal…

Jump to:
Configure Loopback check using the GUI
Configure Loopback check using Powershell
Credits and References


What you need to do is this step by step:

In ‘Metro’ mode, type regedit

Regedit1x

Regedit will most likely be the only result, hit enter

Regedit2

In regedit, find the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\MSV1_0

First…

Regedit3x

then…

Regedit4x

Now, create a Multi-String Value under the MSV1_0 key.

Regedit5x

Type in the name of the new Multi-String value: ‘BackConnectionHostNames’, Hit Enter.

Regedit6x

Right click on the value BackConnectionHostNames and coose Modify.

Regedit7x

Add the URL you want to be able to access from a local browser on the server.

Regedit8

Don’t know why, but I seem to Always get this. Click Ok.

Regedit9

Viola!

Regedit10x

Adding multiple URL’s to the list of ‘trusted’ URL’s, simply make a new line between them.

Regedit11

That will look like this.

Regedit12x

To be extra sure that nothing else will sabotage functionality, check so that the URL’s are added to DNS.
(Or local hosts file)

DNS1x

Check so that the URL’s are added as bindings in IIS.

IIS1x

Verify that the URL’s are correct and are added to AAM.

AAM1x

Make sure that the URL is added to the Local Intranet Zone in Internet Explorer (if you need to browse the site from the server, NOT RECOMMENDED!).

IE3x

Try to access the URL in a browser.

IE1x

And the other URL.

IE2x

Done!

Doing the same using PowerShell

Using PowerShell to configure the Loopback check, requires two steps:

1. Add the multistring value to the registry
Get-Item -path “HKLM:\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\MSV1_0” | new-Itemproperty -Name “BackConnectionHostNames” -Value (“coolsite.corp.balkestahl.se”, “alias.corp.balkestahl.se”) -PropertyType “MultiString”

2. Restart the IISADMIN service
Restart-Service IISADMIN

1. Add the multistring value to the registry

Given that you have Everything setup correctly, your AAM’s, your DNS entrys, (URL added to local intranetsites zone in IE), and so forth…you can use this single PowerShell command to exclude the URL’s for your sites from the loopbackcheck, this way, you don’t have to disable the loopbackcheck at all (Way better security).

The following command will add my two URL’s to the exclusion list, edit the values to add your own URL’s.

Run this in a PowerShell prompt running in elevaled mode/as Administrator

Get-Item -path “HKLM:\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\MSV1_0” | new-Itemproperty -Name “BackConnectionHostNames” -Value (“coolsite.corp.balkestahl.se”, “alias.corp.balkestahl.se”) -PropertyType “MultiString”

Running this will if Everything is done right, show this

Powershell1

This is how it will look if it succeeds!

Powershell2

If you get ‘The property already exists.’, then you already have the ‘BackConnectionHostNames’ value added to the registry, check using registry editor to see if you can delete it or if it has other values that need to be there.

After a successful execution, check the registry to verify

Regedit12x

2. Restart the IISADMIN service

Now you have to restart the IISADMIN service in order for it to ‘reread’ the registry values and implement our Changes.
This is easy, in a PowerShell prompt running in elevaled mode/as Administrator

Restart-Service IISADMIN

Powershell3

Note the typo/bug in the text, it says stopping twice but what it does it stopping and starting

Done!

The command line in step 1 will add two (2) entries to the list, coolsite.corp.balkestahl.se and alias.corp.balkestahl.se. If you need to add more URL’s, add them to the Values, like: -Value (“coolsite.corp.balkestahl.se”, “alias.corp.balkestahl.se”, “mycoolnetbiosname”, “extraname.corp.balkestahl.se”).

Make sure that the doublequotes are formated in the proper way if you copy from this post!

That would make the command

Get-Item -path “HKLM:\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\MSV1_0” | new-Itemproperty -Name “BackConnectionHostNames” -Value (“coolsite.corp.balkestahl.se”, “alias.corp.balkestahl.se”, “mycoolnetbiosname”, “extraname.corp.balkestahl.se”) -PropertyType “MultiString”

and

Restart-Service IISADMIN -force

The complete list of tools in Windows Server 2012


Tools Tools Tools Tools Tools….I wonder how much smaller in diskspace Windows would be without the tools? There are Tools for almost every task, just browse this list and you understand what I’m talking about.
Have you ever wondered about a commandline tool and did not find the proper explanation or the TechNet page for it?
Have you like me, had to learn what a lot of these does simply to be able to pass a certification?

IMG_0818(Oh, the Picture shows two bowls of chocolate, nothing else…)

Look no further, bookmark this page and you will find it all in one convenient place. No PowerShell here though, a lot of the stuff that can be made using these tools may or may not be performed using PowerShell CMDlets as well, but these are not listed here, this list is strictly for hardcore tools!

Do you miss any certain Windows Server 2012 tool that you feel should be here? Please let me know which it is and I’ll be sure to add it if you can convince me that it should be part of the list.

SharePoint 2013 PowerShell cmdlets listed – Onprem vs Online


PowerShell! Every SharePoint technicians best friend, for 2010 this is absolutely true, but how are we doing in the new releases? 2013 and Office 365 wave 15 (likely to be released during Q1 2013). Turns out we have nothing to worry about, with the RTM of 2013, PowerShell is still our best friend, a little worse with SharePoint Online though, but while not yet best friends, we have now gone from beeing complete strangers to acquaintances…

The support for PowerShell is somewhat better in 2013 and the number of features in the product has grown significantly, with that taken into account, the total number of CMD’lets in SharePoint Server 2013 is 730 Out of Box! This compared to SharePoint Server 2010 that has 531 CMD’lets (Aug-2011).

Compared to that, the modest list of 27 CMD’lets in SharePoint Online in the wave 15 upgrade can hardly even be called PowerShell support.

CMDlets chart

But, if looking at the original Office 365 release that had NONE/No PowerShell  support for SharePoint it is a great leap forward, given that Microsoft has to solve a lot of issues running PowerShell commands against a remote instance in the cloud and never beeing able to have direct database access and so on, it is a pretty good start. I do however hope and think that Microsoft is investing in broader support in the future. I would for example love to be able to manage content and site/web configurations using PowerShell in SharePoint online as well as I can onprem today.

Below are the complete lists of Onprem vs. Online commandlets available. My goal was from the beginning to make a comparison chart but the differences are to great, the Online list to short so the benefit would be little or none.

Note: Remember that we do not necessarily have to stare ourselves blind only at the number of CMD’lets, one CMD’let can have better functionality as well.

Activate selected languages on all subsites using Powershell


Hi friends.

If you ever find yourself wanting to enable a particular language or set of languages on a site Collection and all subsites, and if you do NOT want to enable all languages installed but rather Control what gets enabled? Here is a scripot that will help you.
In my own scenario I had 4 site Collections, each tageted for a different nordic country, Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark. So, the need is to have enabled English for all and only the countrys language for the 4 site Collections.

Looking for an existing sample code to use, I found many that were copies of the MSDN sample, this is a good piece of code but it enables all languages installed.

So, trying to find a clever way of selecting what language got enabled, I found an old script I created for the same customer, the solution was so simple it works!
While iterating thru all the installed languages, site by site, I check the displayname of the Language and add criteria fro the languages to install. Beautifully simple 🙂
There is Little difference between this and the MSDN sample code, but is was an important difference to me.

This is what I used in the end:

# Enables SELECTED installed languages for each subsite in a site collection
 $spSiteURL = http://sharepoint.balkestahl.se/sites/subsitecountry
 $spSite = Get-SPSite -Identity $spSiteURL
 foreach ($spWeb in $spSite.AllWebs)
 {
   $spWeb.IsMultilingual = $true
   $WebRegionSettings = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.SPRegionalSettings($spWeb)
   foreach ($language in $WebRegionSettings.InstalledLanguages)
   {
     If ($language.DisplayName -eq "English" -or $language.DisplayName -eq "Swedish")
     # Add the displayname of any langauge you have installed: -or $language.DisplayName -eq "Norwegian" -or $language.DisplayName -eq "Finnish" -or $language.DisplayName -eq "Danish"
     {
        write-host -BackgroundColor Green -ForegroundColor Black "Update -" $spWeb "site with LCID:" $language.DisplayName
        $culture = New-Object System.Globalization.CultureInfo($language.LCID)
        $spWeb.AddSupportedUICulture($Culture)
     }
     else
     {
        Write-host " Language not activated: " $language.DisplayName " on site " $spWeb.Name
     }
   }
   $spWeb.Update()
 }

This saved me hours and hours…or made it possible 🙂
The running of the script looks something like this, in my case around 3000 times for the Swedish collection, all in all, 50.000 subsites!):

Script

Before running the script, in each site, you have these settings:
(Accessed under: Site Settings/Language Settings, path: /_layouts/muisetng.aspx)
Languages1x

And what we want to do, is check the box for the selected language(s) and move on to the next.

Languages2x

When adding the criteria to the If statement, use the displaynames exactly like in the list in Site Settings/Language Settings:

LanguagesDisplayNamesx

This script saved me, I hope it can do the same for some of you.

How to disable IE Enhanced Security in Windows Server 2012


Have you seen this? Or similar in SharePoint 2010?

This is just a quick guide to disabling the setting that makes Internet Explorer unbarable in a labb or test environment. Often, you do use the browser on the lab, dev or test server to quickly verify functionality or in SharePoint, to access Central Administration web site and make the first initial configurations. When IE ESC is eneabled, you get popups all the time and you are asked to add every new url to the IE trusted sites zone.
So, on a dev, test or lab server, it is ok to disable it, at least if you ask me. As long as you are aware of what you are doing and that it after all does provide an extra layer of security.
At the end of this post, I have added what all the settings in IE ESC really does, one by one.

Updated 2013-02-06 – Added link menu



Server2012_Logo_small Disable IE ESC using the GUI – Graphical User Interface
powershell_logo_small Disable IE ESC using PowerShell
Server2012_Logo_small General Information about IE ESC




GUI – Graphical User Interface

The steps:

1. On the Windows Server 2012 server desktop, locate and start the Server Manager.

2. Select Local Server (The server you are currently on and the one that needs IE ESC turned off)

3. On the right side of the Server Manager, you will by default find the IE Enhanced Security Configuration Setting. (The default is On)

4. You have two settings that can be disabled, one only affects the Administrators and the other all users. The preferred method when testing (if for example SharePoint) is to use a non-admin account and if that is the case, disable the IEESC only for users. Using a local administrator account would cause an additional threat to security and it will also often not give you the required result in tests, since the administrator has permissions where a normal user do not.
Make your selection to Off for Administrators, Users or both.

5. In this example, I have selected to completely disable Internet Explorer Enhanced Security. When your seelction is made, click OK.

6. Back in the Server Manager, you will see that the setting has not changed at all. Press F5 to refresh the Server Manager and you wil see that it is changed to Off.

Done, open up a IE browser windows and try to access any internal site to test the setting, you will notice that you no longer are prompted in the same way.

PowerShell

(Best I can do, if you know of any OOB CMDlets that does the trick, please drop a comment and let me know:
Put the code below in a textfile and save it with a ps1 extension i.e. Disable-IEESC.ps1
(This will disable both Administrator and User IE ESC)

function Disable-IEESC
{
$AdminKey = “HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\{A509B1A7-37EF-4b3f-8CFC-4F3A74704073}”
$UserKey = “HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\{A509B1A8-37EF-4b3f-8CFC-4F3A74704073}”
Set-ItemProperty -Path $AdminKey -Name “IsInstalled” -Value 0
Set-ItemProperty -Path $UserKey -Name “IsInstalled” -Value 0
Stop-Process -Name Explorer
Write-Host “IE Enhanced Security Configuration (ESC) has been disabled.” -ForegroundColor Green
}
Disable-IEESC
(You have to hit enter twice after pasting the script if you paste it directly into a PS prompt)
 
Powershell
Done!

IEESC General Information

IMPORTANT! Do NOT disable IE ESC on any production servers or servers with live data on them, to disable IE ESC is to reduce the security and can potentially expose the server to attacks. By the way, on a production server: IE shall not be used at all!

More on IE ESC from Microsoft help:
(From Windows Server 2008R2 helkp, 2012 help leads to an empty web page!)

Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration Overview

Windows Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration (IE ESC) configures your server and Internet Explorer in a way that decreases the exposure of your server to potential attacks through Web content and application scripts. This is done by raising the default security levels on Internet Explorer security zones and changing the default settings.

Enabling or disabling IE ESC

IE ESC can be enabled or disabled by using Server Manager for members of the local Administrators group only or for all users that log on to the computer.

Membership in the local Administrators group, or equivalent, is the minimum required to complete this procedure.

Note:   If Internet Explorer is open when IE ESC is enabled or disabled, you must   restart Internet Explorer for the IE ESC changes to become active.
Note: IE ESC will   automatically be disabled if Terminal Services or Remote Desktop Services is   installed on a computer that has IE ESC enabled, but it can be enabled again   by using Server Manager.

Default settings for IE ESC

When IE ESC is enabled on Windows Server 2008 R2, the security levels for several built-in security zones are changed. The following describes these changes.

Internet
High
All Web sites are assigned to this zone by default. Web pages might not display as expected, and applications that require the Web browser might not work correctly because scripts, ActiveX controls, and file downloads have been disabled. If you trust an Internet Web site, you can add that site to the Trusted sites zone.

Trusted sites
Medium
This zone is for the Internet sites whose content you trust.

Local intranet
Medium-Low
When visiting Web sites on your organization’s intranet, you might be repeatedly prompted for credentials because IE ESC disables the automatic detection of intranet Web sites. To automatically send credentials to selected intranet sites, add those sites to the Local intranet zone. Additionally, access to scripts, executable files, and other files in a shared folder are restricted unless the shared folder is added to this zone.

Restricted sites
High
This zone contains sites that are not trusted, such as malicious Web sites.

Internet Explorer maintains two different lists of sites for the Trusted sites zone: one list when IE ESC is enabled and a separate list when it is disabled. When you add a Web site to the Trusted sites zone, you are adding it only to the list that is currently being used.

If you attempt to browse a Web site that uses scripting or ActiveX controls, Internet Explorer with IE ESC enabled will prompt you to consider adding the site to the Trusted sites zone. You should add the Web site to the Trusted sites zone only if you are sure that the Web site is trustworthy. If this prompt is disabled, it can be enabled again by selecting the Display enhanced security configuration dialog check box in the Advanced tab of the Internet Options dialog box. For more information about adding Web sites to Internet Explorer security zones, see Security zones: adding and removing websites (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=81287).

In addition to raising the default security level of each zone, IE ESC also adjusts Internet options to further reduce exposure to possible future security threats. These settings can be found on the Advanced tab of the Internet Options dialog box. The following describes the options that are changed when IE ESC is enabled.

Enable third-party browser extensions
Off
Disables Internet Explorer add-ons that might have been created by companies other than Microsoft.

Play sounds in Web pages
Off
Disables music and other sounds.

Play animations in Web pages
Off
Disables animations.

Check for server certificate revocation
On
Automatically checks a Web site’s certificate to determine if the certificate has been revoked.

Do not save encrypted pages to disk
On
Disables saving encrypted information in the Temporary Internet Files folder.

Empty Temporary Internet Files folder when browser is closed
On
Automatically clears the Temporary Internet Files folder when Internet Explorer is closed.

Warn if changing between secure and not secure mode
On
Displays a warning when a Web site is redirecting the browser from a Web site with security features implemented (HTTPS) to a Web site without security features implemented (HTTP).

The Internet Explorer home page location is changed when IE ESC is enabled or disabled. This change ensures that the home page will open without prompting the user to add it to the Trusted sites zone. This is done by changing the home page to an HTML file stored locally on the computer. If you want to change the home page when IE ESC is enabled, add this home page to the Trusted sites zone before making the change. The following lists the home page associated with each scenario.

IE ESC is enabled, and the user account is a member of the local Administrators group.
res://iesetup.dll/HardAdmin.htm

IE ESC is disabled, and the user account is a member of the local Administrators group.
res://iesetup.dll/SoftAdmin.htm

IE ESC is enabled, and the user account is not a member of the local Administrators group.
res://iesetup.dll/HardUser.htm

Note: If Internet Explorer   is customized by using the Internet Explorer Administration Kit, the home   page is not changed to one of the IE ESC home pages listed in the table when   IE ESC is enabled or disabled.

Caution

These changes reduce the functionality in Web pages, Web-based applications, local network resources, and applications that use a browser to display Help, support, and general user assistance.

When IE ESC is enabled, the following Web sites are added to the appropriate security zones:
The Windows Update and Windows Error Reporting Web sites are added to the Trusted sites zone.
Http://localhost
https://localhost
hcp://system
are added to the Local intranet zone.
