SharePoint 2010 – How to change welcome e-mail content..!!!


What is a SharePoint site?

A SharePoint site is a Web site that provides a central storage and collaboration space for documents, information, and ideas. A SharePoint site is a tool for collaboration, just like a telephone is a tool for communication, or a meeting is a tool for decision making. A SharePoint site helps groups of people (whether work teams or social groups) share information and work together. For example, a SharePoint site can help you:

* Coordinate projects, calendars, and schedules.
* Discuss ideas and review documents or proposals.
* Share information and keep in touch with other people.

When you create a user this mail will come to the user inbox…if you want to customize it…you have to log on to Sharepoint server as administrator…

Locate  C:\program files\common files\Microsoft shared\web server extensions\14\Resources\

File name : core.en-US

Open this file in notepad and edit or add it…

Warning : When you edit, you should know what you are editing..its at your own risk…because these files are script based XML files…

Once you done, save and restart the server…cache needs to update…

SharePoint 2010 installed on Windows Server 2008 R2 – Event ID 10016 – Resolution

The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID {61738644-F196-11D0-9953-00C04FD919C1} to the user TESTSPS\svc-sharepoint-dev SID (S-1-5-21-3914637029-2275272621-3670275343-1145) from address LocalHost (Using LRPC). This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool.

A typical error…uhhh

To rectify this error…first you need to do this on the SPS server..Windows Server 2008 R2, you must first take ownership of the corresponding registry key and grant Administrators permissions to update the configuration. If you do not take the ownership and try to add the user, pop-up window will appear and will say “ACCESS IS DENIED”

To grand  permission to the  configuration of the IIS WAMREG Admin Service to be changed using the Component Services console:

  1. Click the Start menu, type regedit, and then click regedit.exe.  If prompted by User Account Control to allow the program to make changes to this computer, click Yes.
  2. In the Registry Editor window, search for “61738644-F196-11D0-9953-00C04FD919C1” to find HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AppID\{61738644-F196-11D0-9953-00C04FD919C1}.
  3. Right-click on the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AppID\{61738644-F196-11D0-9953-00C04FD919C1} key and then click Permissions.
  4. In the Permissions for {61738644-F196-11D0-9953-00C04FD919C1} dialog box, click Advanced.
  5. In the Advanced Security Settings for {61738644-F196-11D0-9953-00C04FD919C1} dialog box:
    1. Click the Owner tab.
    2. In the Change owner to list, click the Administrators group.
    3. Click OK.
  6. In the Permissions for {61738644-F196-11D0-9953-00C04FD919C1} dialog box, click the Administrators group, then click the checkbox to allow the group Full Control, and click OK.
  7. Close the Registry Editor window.

Now you have granded the Administrators group to sufficient permissions, now how to change the IIS WAMREG Admin Service. If you don’t do the previous step and go directly to the component service, all the fields are disabled.

Next step is refered in the KB article KB920783 from Microsoft…which is as follows on your SPS server….

  • Click Start, click Run, type dcomcnfg in the Open box, and then click OK.
  • Expand Component Services, expand Computers, expand My Computer, and then click DCOM Config.
  • Right-click IIS WAMREG admin Service, and then click Properties.
  • Click the Security tab.
  • Under Launch and Activation Permissions, click Edit.
  • In the Launch Permission dialog box, click Add.
  • In the Select Users, Computers, or Groups dialog box, change the location to the local server. Then, type the local security group WSS_WPG, click Check Names, and then click OK.
  • In the Permissions for UserName list, click to select the Allow check box that is next to Local Activation, and then click OK
  • Hope this will help you
