2016: User profile ActiveDirectory import job never runs

We are using the SP2016 standard in the facilities. We can configure the user profile import successfully and all users are imported for the first time. However, when I check the timer job User Profile ActiveDirectory Import Job The last execution time is always "N / A". If i click Start Profile Sync It seems that nothing happens. The status is always inactive although I refresh the page.

The problem is that I discovered that some users have updated their Display Name. But in the user profile, your account still uses the previous value.

Could you advise what could be wrong?

SQL 2016 uses low RAM

I have a SQL server 2016, version:
(SP2-CU4-OD) (KB4482972) – 13.0.5239.0 (X64)

The server is a Win 2016, with 64 GB of RAM.
I have set the maximum memory for SQL to 54 GB, but it uses less than 1 GB.
The data has been migrated from an earlier version of SQL.

Can anybody help me?

Thank you

How to change the name of the sender in the OpenIDConnect discovery document in Windows Server 2016 ADFS

I have configured ADFS in Windows Server 2016 and the discovery document looks like this: https://ad.nexgen.am/adfs/.well-known/openid-configuration

You can see that the issuer name is in uppercase "AD", which is causing my OpenId client to throw an error: the issuer name does not match the authority.

It seems that the issuer name is case sensitive as mentioned here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/43626944/getting-discoveryclient-fails-with-issuer-name-does-not-match-authority

For some reason, the OIDC Client does not seem to like the authority url in uppercase and I have the feeling that it is being converted to lowercase. Everything works fine if I tell the OIDC Client not to validate the name of the issuer, but it seems like a trick.

I tried changing the properties of the ADFS service from the user interface and configured the "Federation Service Name" and the "Federation Service Identifier" that does not appear to update the Issuer in the discovery document.

I understand that the name of the computer is capitalized, so this is happening, but I really don't want to go there, since it is a domain controller and I have read horror stories about how to change the name of a domain controller.

Any other suggestions?

Does anyone know why differential backups of SQL Server 2005 will not be restored correctly in SQL Server 2016? And how can I solve this?

We are planning to migrate from the old SQL 2005 server to the SQL 2016 server with the differential backup, but I read an article that says that the differential backup is not supported correctly.

2016 – Export SharePoint blog posts to SharePoint online pages OR Word / PDF

SharePoint 2016 offered the blog site template to share knowledge and other things. When migrating to SharePoint Online, this content can be a problem: How to export content and transfer it to modern SharePoint Online pages or PDF / Word documents?

Of course, you can do it by hand and lose tens of hours. But it would be nice to have a path by automatically exporting and importing the content.

Update / migration / site -> site collection question in Sharepoint 2010 and Sharepoint 2016

Hoping for some thoughts / guidance on the approach for this. I am in the middle of a project to update / migrate an SP2010 environment to SP2016. Due to the gaps in the versions, the approach we are taking is to provide an SP2016 environment, create the required topology and then use a migration tool (probably Sharegate) to actually migrate the content of the previous environment to the new one.

The existing use is quite simple (there is not much in terms of customization) but the volume data is not trivial: it is at least a few hundred GB, currently all in a single content database. Because of this, as part of the migration, it makes sense to reorganize a bit and ensure, for example, that site collections have their own database.

Anyway, the question / orientation: there is a subsite of the root site collection that has a lot of content and this is one that I would like to move to your own site collection so that your data can go to a separate content database . However, the problem is that the URLs must remain the same after migration because they are linked from another system.

I will try to illustrate! There is currently an SP2010 server, which we will call SP2010SERVER. There is a CNAME in DNS that points to (with AAM configured AFAIK) of, for example, SHAREPOINT. Therefore, at this time you can explore the content in SP2010SERVER using the DNS name of SHAREPOINT. There is a subsite, which we will call SUBSITE1, and the URLs are, for example, http: // sharepoint / subsite1. (Note: there are many other sites and site collections with managed routes, etc.)

We have the new SP2016 server; let's say it's called SP2016SERVER. When completed, the idea is to change the DNS record so that SHAREPOINT now points to SP2016SERVER.

I need to move the current SUBSITE1 to its own site collection in the new environment, keeping the URL of http: // sharepoint / subsite1. I think that migrating the content to the root site of a new site collection is quite trivial, but the question is how to retain the URL. I cannot use a managed route (afaik) because if I configured, for example, & # 39; subsite1 & # 39; As a managed route, you would still need a site collection name after the route.

I've been looking at host name site collections (d) as a possible solution. I think in this case you can specify any URL for the site collection, but I haven't used them before and all the examples I've seen tend to use a kind of subdomain.domain.tld. type setting

Would this work for my needs? And if not, is there an alternative solution or option for this?

I imagine I could achieve the same with some kind of magic / redirection of IIS, etc., but I hoped to avoid this if possible.

Thanks for any thoughts / help!

sql server 2016: database mirroring: will force the service only lose unencumbered data?

I have a database mirroring session in high security mode between Server1 (Primary) and Server2 (Secondary)

According to this, duplication of synchronous data means

each transaction committed in the main database is also
committed to the mirror server, guaranteeing data protection.
This is achieved by waiting to confirm a transaction in the principal.
database, until the main server receives a message from the
mirror server that indicates that the transaction log has tightened to
disk. Note that waiting for this message increases the latency of
transaction

With this in mind, if I lose Server1 completely (and unrecoverable) and force secondary service using

ALTER DATABASE (MyDatabase) SET PARTNER FORCE_SERVICE_ALLOW_DATA_LOSS

Would you lose only the transactions that were in flight on Server1?

In 2016, Senator Bernie Sanders encouraged Elizabeth Warren to run for president. Now she says she is sexist. Why are you lying like Hillary Clinton?

Chief Warren has a quick and lost relationship with the Truth.

Say what you want about Bernie's political views, (I know I do), but he realizes that he really believes what he is saying, and Chief Warren looks like someone who will say whatever it takes to be elected.

update: migrate a sharepoint 2013 to 2016 subsite

What is the error you are getting when migrating content db, could you share here? By the way, for the resolution of common problems in the migration of content db, you can consult the following article:

SharePoint Migration: basic tips and tricks in migration projects

As a second approach, you can use the third-party migration tool such as sharegate, Metalogix or the Microsoft SharePoint migration tool.

Sharegate and Metalogix: the trial version is available, you can download it and the Microsoft SharePoint migration tool is a free version, you can also use it.
