NT Security Issues

  Asked By: Noah    Date: Apr 13    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1393

We are currently undertaking a SPS pilot and having trouble with assigning
security. I have my readers, authors and co-ordinators setup and can see it
all as it should be in Workspace Settings but SPS still does not recognise
the users. I know this is a bug but a restart did not cure the problem.

The following did:
I stopped the IIS Admin Service - This stopped the MS Exchange
Information Store, Sharepoint Portal Server and SMTP services.
I restarted all maually and it seems fine now. ( ???? Why didn't the restart
work ?)

Please tell me that SP1 fixes this issue - surely I don't have to do this
EVERY time I want to add a new user?

We've had the same problem  & nope the sp1  does not fix it. We wrote an API
to restart  SPS services  & reboot the server  (the latter works fine  with our
set up). It's a pain alright, but we've advised clients to batch add  users
and reboot the server evenings/weekends for minimal disruption.

There go my hopes about SP1!!

Looks like I will just have to batch add users  after hours as you

Is there a particular order in which the SPS services  should be restarted to
ensure everything works okay?

Answer #3    Answered By: William Odom     Answered On: Apr 13

If you restart  the IIS Admin Service, all related services  will
automatically be restarted as well.
That should do it.

If not:

IIS Admin Service
SharePoint Portal Server
Exchange Information Store

When I restarted IIS Admin the other services  did not start automatically.

Thanks for the list of services...

You shouldn't be running Sharepoint portal  on an Exchange box...

I think you misread. She said the Exchange Info Store... that is part of SPS.
Although, in a lab, running it on an E2K standard box would be fine.

One of the ways you may be able to avoid this is to assign permissions to groups
instead of users. Instead of adding users  to SPS, add  them to the appropriate
global group.It is not quite as convenient as dropping a user  in, but it will
also make your portal  run faster since it will have fewer permissions to spin
through each time  someone tries to access a file or search request.

Does this have any effect on subscriptions? If I have a group (say
SPS-WS-AUTHORS) can each individual
in the group have different subscriptions?
