MOSS 2007 + SSO + ISA 2006 + Office 2007 Clients Integration = ?

Tag: SystemsJoaquim Anguas @ 7:51 pm

MOSS 2007 provides a tight integration with Office 2007 client applications, allowing you to do things like open / create files from MOSS 2007 document libraries and save them right to the library itself (with a local copy in case you want to work offline). ISA 2006 offers Single Sign On (SSO) so you can embed / link other sites of yours (like OWA) on your sharepoint sites. One expects (or at least users do) that these “star” features work out of the box when he installs a server in a standard scenario, right?

Not quite so…

If you have tried that, you already know that some hacking is required in order to get all that running.

I’ve been there… that’s what you have to take into account to get the most out of your MOSS server:

Chrome

chrome /n./

[from automotive slang via wargaming] Showy features added to attract users but contributing little or nothing to the power of a system. “The 3D icons in Motif are just chrome, but they certainly are pretty chrome!” Distinguished from bells and whistles by the fact that the latter are usually added to gratify developers’ own desires for featurefulness. Often used as a term of contempt.

Los “3D icons in Motif” se han convertido en esto

…en solo 10 años.

Progreso, le llaman. “El progreso del chrome“…

No tengo una traducción para “chrome”.

Vale, si la tengo.

Pero no la voy a poner aquí…

Policies, policies

Tag: SystemsJoaquim Anguas @ 2:03 pm

If you try to access a shared resource on your network, and you get the message:

the account is not authorized to log in from this station

And then you try to extract / rejoin the machine from the domain and you get:

the account is not authorized to log in from this station

You google arround and as it starts to smell like a policies issue, you try to review the RSOP for the machine / account and you get:

the account is not authorized to log in from this station

Note: Due to the GP Core failure, none of the other Group Policy components processed their policy. Consequently, status information for the other components is not available.

Then this may help you:

  • Make sure you have the local administrator’s username/password available. If you don’t, you can try A.
  • Take the machine out of the domain by joining it to some bogus workgroup.
  • Login as the local administrator. If you can’t login but get a message about your account being disabled, you can use A to re-enable it.
  • Open mmc and add the Group Policy Management snap-in.
  • Navigate to Local Computer Policy->Computer Configuration->Windows Settings->Security Settings->Local Policies->Security Options and disable Domain Member: Digitally encrypt or sign secure channel data (always) and Microsoft Network Client: Digitally sign communication (always).
  • Rejoin the machine to the domain.

A: This tool may help you. Depending on your disk controller, you may get better results by using an older version from here. Take into account that the target filesystem must be rw. If you have problems you can read this.

NOTE: All usual warnings / disclaimers apply, perform these procedures at your own risk.
