Note-to-self: OneDrive (For Business) vs SharePoint Online

Just got a question about the differences between OneDrive (for Business) and SharePoint Online… As it’s not my core knowledge, I just did some quick research, which might serve your knowledge too… Here we go.

Sources:

The page on OneDrive for Business Service Description has a very interesting comparison, but IMHO, it’s missing a bit of color.
So, I’ve reworked the page slightly (but all credits to the Microsoft Product team.

Note-to-self: Sharepoint maintenance for FIMsters (#FIM2010 running out of disk space?)

When you’re taking care of your FIM Server, more specific the FIM Portal server running Sharepoint, you might encounter some events in the event viewer, where Sharepoint is complaining about the lack of disk space.

But it’s very likely that you have plenty of disk space …

If you don’t have plenty of disk space, (*) then stop reading and fix it, bookmark this page and come back.

 

So, you have plenty of diskspace…
Then it’s very likely you have enough memory in your system to run your FIM Server smoothly… (if not go back 2 lines, and execute *)

Now, plenty of memory and plenty of disk is the problem.

By default Sharepoint runs the health analyser and has gotten 2 rules that compare the amount of memory against the amount of free space.

See here for more explanation: Drives are running out of free space (SharePoint Foundation 2010)
“This rule checks disk space as a proportion of the RAM on the computer. When disk space is less than twice the RAM on the computer, the health rule triggers an error. When disk space is less than five times the RAM on the computer, the health rule triggers a warning. Accordingly, server computers with lots of RAM are more likely to experience a failure of this rule.”

So if you have a huge amount of memory, this rule can easily fill up your application event error log in your event viewer.

What can you do about it?

First of all, there are more and other rules, tools and checks that will warn you if you REALLY have a disk issue:

  • the operating system will warn you if your hard drive is going below the usual free space thresholds
  • Better make sure you’ve got a system monitoring active (like System Center Operations Manager)
  • There are additional health rules in SharePoint that monitor the disk for % of free space

Secondly, you can disable the redundant error messages by the SharePoint Health Analyser.
Check out this post:
“SBS2011: The SharePoint Health Analyzer detected an error. Drives are running out of free space. Available drive space is less than twice the value of physical memory. [Solved]

SBS2011: The SharePoint Health Analyzer detected an error. Drives are running out of free space.Available drive space is less than twice the value of physical memory. [Solved]

Although the post is focusing on SBS2011, it does also apply to SharePoint Server 2010 (Foundation).

The post provides a step by step guide to disable the 2 disk analysis jobs:

  • Disks are at risk of running out of free space. (free disk space < 5x your server’s RAM)
  • Disk are running out of free space (free space < 2x your server RAM)

 

For WSS and SharePoint 2007, it’s slightly different, check this out:

Solution:

1. Check the SharePoint Farm account password, Try to (re)start the sharepoint timer service. Check for logon failure.

See: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/2663487c-748d-413e-a8fc-81f41f216297/update-conflict-in-search-service-application

2. Clear the SharePoint cache on the server where the timer service is running.

#FIM 2010 Quicktip: Troubleshooting the FIM 2010 portal loading a blank page

Working on a case where a FIM configuration has moved from development to production.
The customer’s production environment is a highly secured environment with a server security lockdown. The customer is using a custom tool for server profiling and local security lockdown.

After installing and configuring FIM, the FIM portal was loading blank.

 

The Application Pool account had changed. When adding the Application pool account to the local administrators group, the portal loaded again…

So we needed to investigate what was going wrong.

Some references we got from our Sharepoint colleagues…

Plan for administrative and service accounts (Office SharePoint Server)
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc263445(v=office.12).aspx

How to change service accounts and service account passwords in SharePoint Server 2007 and Windows SharePoint Services 3.0
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/934838/en-us.

They also advised to run a security reset on the SharePoint portal, see: Command-line reference for the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard (Office SharePoint Server)http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc263093(v=office.12).aspx

secureresources Performs SharePoint Products and Technologies resource security enforcement on the server. For example, security is enforced on files, folders, and registry keys.

Example

psconfig.exe -cmd secureresources

Although very useful to reset the security, it didn’t change the behaviour on the portal (still loading blank page).

Using procmon (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896645.aspx), we found out that we had quite some errors.
Just a hint: exclude ‘success’ messages and filter on the targeted application pool account.

We first checked the default WSS group memberships for the AppPoolAccount.

For reference: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc678863(v=office.15).aspx

 

Just to double check, during troubleshooting we removed the WSS_WPG group from the FIM Portal application pool (default Sharepoint Application pool).

This is the result:

HTTP Error 500.19 – Internal Server Error

The requested page cannot be accessed because the related configuration data for the page is invalid.

clip_image002

So that made the situation even worse.

Back to the procmon results, as procmon threw errors on the impersonation of the application pool account we checked the local security policy. And the AppPool account appeared to be removed from the setting or was not member of the groups referenced in the setting.

Solution:

Do not make the Application pool account member of the local admins.

Make sure the Application Pool account has the “Impersonate a client after authentication” right in the local Security Policy.
