Export und Import SPWeb with Workflows
Created: 13.11.2018
Categories: PowerShell; SharePoint Development; SharePoint 2016

      If you want to export and import a SharePoint site you can use Export-SPWeb and Import-SPWeb. In most cases these commands work fine.
  If you have SharePoint Designer Workflows in this site, SharePoint adds a folder called "Workflows" and sometime this folder has a property
  called "docid_msft_hier_listid_validate" and a value which is invalid during the import.
  
  German error message:
  Import-SPWeb : Von der Zeichenfolge dargestellte DateTime liegt außerhalb des gültigen Bereichs.
  
  The following command changes the value and an import can be executed without problems:

  
$web = Get-SPWeb -Identity https://sharepoint/sites/PowerShellTests
$folder = $web.Folders["Workflows"]
$property = $folder.Properties["docid_msft_hier_listid_validate"]

$dt = Get-Date -Year 2100 -Month 12 -Day 31
$folder.Properties["docid_msft_hier_listid_validate"] = $dt
$folder.Update()
$web.Update()

Rename Internal Document Library Name
Created: 10.11.2018
Categories: PowerShell; SharePoint Development; SharePoint 2016

      If you want to rename a SharePoint library you can use the library configuration.
  If you want to rename the internal name you could use SharePoint Designer. Unless you have more than 5.000 items (which is a bad idea anyway):
  
  Server error: The attempted operation is prohibited because it exceeds the list view treshold enforced by the administrator.

  Ribbon
  
  But you can change the internal name using PowerShell:
  
      
    $url = "https://sharepoint/sites/PowerShellTests"
    $web = Get-SPWeb $url
    $lib = $web.GetList($web.Url + "/oldName")
    $rootFolder = $lib.RootFolder
    $rootFolder.MoveTo($web.Url + "/newName")

Re-Apply Quotas
Created: 05.10.2017
Categories: PowerShell; SharePoint Development; SharePoint 2016

      If you change a quota template you have to re-apply the template. In this case it was very easy since all sites have the same quota (personal My Sites).

      
$wa = $get-spwebapplication "my site host url"
$wa.Sites | foreach-object {
  if ( $_.Url.StartsWith("my site host url/personal") ) {
    Set-SPSite -Identity $_.Url -QuotaTemplate "Personal Site"
  }
}

Empty Popularity Trends and Most Popular Items
Created: 24.08.2017
Categories: SharePoint Development; PowerShell; SharePoint 2016

      In case the popularity trends report and the most popular items report are empty you can check (and re-eanble) the event receivers using PowerShell:

      Get receivers:
      
      $analytics = Get-SPUsageDefinition | where {
        $_.Name -like "Analytics*" }
      $pageRequests = Get-SPUsageDefinition | where {
        $_.Name -like "Page Requests" }
      


      Check receivers:
      
      $analytics.Receivers.Count
      $pageRequests.Receivers.Count
      


      If the result is 0 you can re-enable the receivers
      (remove line breaks)
      
      if ($analytics.Receivers.Count -eq 0)
      {
        $analytics.Receivers.Add(
          "Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Applications,
          Version=16.0.0.0, Culture=neutral,
          PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c",
          "Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Analytics.Internal.
          AnalyticsCustomRequestUsageReceiver")
      }
      if ($analytics.EnableReceivers -eq $false)
      {
        $analytics.EnableReceivers = $true
        $analytics.Update()
      }

      if ($pageRequests.Receivers.Count -eq 0)
      {
        $pageRequests.Receivers.Add(
          "Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Applications,
          Version=16.0.0.0, Culture=neutral,
          PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c",
          "Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Analytics.Internal.
          ViewRequestUsageReceiver")
      }
      if ($pageRequests.EnableReceivers -eq $false)
      {
        $pageRequests.EnableReceivers = $true
        $pageRequests.Update()
      }

Rename SharePoint MySite Blog
Created: 16.11.2013
Categories: SharePoint 2013; SharePoint Development; PowerShell

Want to rename your MySite blogs using PowerShell since all MySite blog names are "Blog"?


# URL to your MySite web application
$MySiteWebUrl = "https://mysite.collaboration-2-go.net"
      
# where to find users in the AD
$searchbase="DC=collaboration-2-go,DC=net"
      
# required if server domain and user domain are different
$dc="my_domain_controller"
      
# required if server language is English and
# MySite language is different
$culture = "de-DE"

$webapp = Get-SPWebApplication -identity $MySiteWebUrl
[System.Threading.Thread]::CurrentThread.CurrentUICulture =
  $culture
        
foreach ($site in $webapp.Sites)
{
  # Get Active Directory Information
  $login = $site.Owner.LoginName
  if ($login.contains("\"))
  {
    $login = $login.substring($login.indexof("\") + 1)
  }
        
  $ldapfilter = "(SamAccountName=" + $login + ")"
  $aduser = Get-ADUser -LDAPFilter $ldapfilter
    -SearchBase $searchbase -Server $dc
  $displayName = $aduser.GivenName + " " + $aduser.Surname
      
  if ($displayName -eq " ")
  {
    $displayName = $site.owner.DisplayName
  }
      
  if ($site.RootWeb.WebTemplate -eq "SPSPERS") # ignore MySite host
  {
    # more sophisticated approach is possible but
    # I'm not sure about the blog URL
    foreach ($web in $site.AllWebs)
    {
      if (($web.WebTemplate -eq "BLOG") -and
        ($web.Title -eq "Blog"))
      {
        $title = "Blog von " + $displayName
        $web.Title = $title
        $web.Update()
      }
          
      $web.Dispose()
    }
  }
        
  $site.Dispose()
}

      
If you don't set the culture SharePoint changes to English title only.

How to create Exchange Public Folders for Appointments
Created: 04.10.2011
Categories: Exchange Development; Exchange; PowerShell

      Unfortunately the PowerShell cmdlet New-PublicFolder doesn’t allow different types for public folders. But with a small trick you can set the type later. The code requires CDOEX that runs locally only.

      PowerShell Code:
      
      $FolderPath = "/TEMP"
      $NewFolder = "CalendarTest"
      $PFRoot = "file://./backofficestorage/litwareinc.com/Public Folders"

      # Use PowerShell cmdlet to create new folder
      # (depending upon whether a root folder or not)
      if ($FolderPath -ne "")
      {
        $f = $FolderPath -replace("/", "\")
        New-PublicFolder -Name $NewFolder -Path $f
      }
      else
      {
        New-PublicFolder -Name $NewFolder
      }

      # Use ADO to change the folder type
      $o=New-Object -comobject ADODB.Record
      $updated=$false
      $timeout=60
      while (($updated -eq $false) -and ($timeout -gt 0))
      {
        $o.Open($PFRoot + $FolderPath + "/" +
         $NewFolder, "", 3, -1, -1, "", "")
        foreach($item in $o.Fields)
        {
        if($item.Name -eq
          "http://schemas.microsoft.com/exchange/outlookfolderclass")
        {
          $updated=$true
          $item.Value="IPF.Appointment"
        }
      }

      $o.Fields.Update()
      $o.Close()

      if ($updated -eq $false)
      {
      Start-Sleep -s 1
      $timeout --
      }
      }
      

      Tested IPF Types: IPF.Post, IPF.Contact, IPF.Appointment, IPF.Task
      Tested Exchange Version: Exchange 2007
