RSA Web Agent 7.1.3 SharePoint WFEs Authentication with Multiple IP Addresses

image4

 

If you are unable to authenticate the after installation and configuration of the RSA WebAgent, you have downloaded the agent from EMC http://www.emc.com/security/rsa-securid/rsa-authentication-agents/iis-7-1.htm,  followed the installation instructions.

Configuration and Errors

  1. You have created and copied the sdconf.rec file to %windir%/system32 and to the C:\Program files\RSA Security\RSAWebAgent
  2. When attempting to authenticate you receive “100:Access denied. The RSA ACE/Server rejected the Passcode. Please try again.”
  3. The application Event viewer  there is an Event ID: 1012, Source: ACEClIENT “Multihomed host detected: Primary IP assumed xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx” and this is not the IP Address you are using for your Extended Web App.

The secureid file will not be created and you will not be able to authenticate

 

 

RSA Rulesimage

Whenever there are multiple IP Addresses (Multi homed Servers) on a Web Server and the Default Address  is not the primary Addresses used for RSA Authentication . The RSA Agent will NOT create the SecureID file on first authentication and the request will timeout…

  1. If the SharePoint server is configured as the WFE, and you are installing the RSA WebAgent to secure external access, ensure the Local System account has read/write access for the following registry key: HKLM\Software\SDTI\ACECLIENT. This ensures that SharePoint WFE is able to write the secret to the registry.
  2. If the SharePoint WFE  has multiple IP Addresses, you will need to explicitly configure the network adapter address through which SharePoint WFE connects to the RSA Authentication Manager for authentication or authentication will fail. To do this, create a new String Value PrimaryInterfaceIP in the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\SDTI\AceClient\.
  3. Double Click on  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\SDTI\AceClient\PrimaryInterfaceIP 
  4. Add the IP Address as the value data.  The value specified must match that set in the agent host record.

Business Intelligence in Microsoft® SharePoint® 2013

Business Intelligence in Microsoft SharePoint 2013

Gain the skills to implement BI solutions

Take control of business intelligence (BI) with the tools offered by SharePoint 2013 and Microsoft SQL Server 2012. Led by a group of BI and SharePoint experts, you’ll get step-by-step instructions for understanding how to use these technologies best in specific BI scenarios—whether you’re a SharePoint administrator, SQL Server developer, or business analyst. My Session provides an overview of the new features available to business users and the knowledge they need to start building their own Dashboards using the tools they already know Excel to implement Business Intelligence features they may not have used previously like SQL Analysis Service, SQL Reporting Services, PowerView, PowerPivot, and Excel Services

 

I hope to see all my friends in Utah

Metalogix Content Matrix 7.2.0.1 PowerShell Copy Jobs “Failed to Find the main assembly”

If you have upgraded from a previous version of Metalogic Content Matrix SharePoint edition or have multiple Content Matrix editions (SharePoint, Fileshare, Blog) deployed you may receive the error “Failed to find the main application assembly” when attempting to run any of your PowerShell Copy Job Scripts. If you are not running the Metalogix copy jobs in PowerShell you will not be affected by this issue.

image

Resolution

The resolution that worked for me was to uninstall Metalogix Content Matrix Consoles, Content Organizer and the Content Matrix WSPs. Open a command prompt in admin mode and run Gacutil /lr > E:\Apps\gacutil.txt to pipe the contents of the GAC to a txt file to review. In one environment I found two assemblies were not being removed Metalogix.System.Commands.dll and Metalogix.SharePoint.Adapters.StoragePoint.dll. The setup uses Installutil and was unable uninstall the two assemblies listed previously.

From the open command prompt run the followingimage

  • gacutil /u Metalogix.System.Commands.dll
  • gacutil /u Metalogix.SharePoint.Adapters.StoragePoint.dll

substitute any assemblies you found for the ones I used as necessary

 

Download gacutil as part of the Microsoft Windows SDK for Windows 7 http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=8279. I spoke with Bill Wilcock the Western Regional Support Manager for Metalogix and “Metalogix has determined it is definitely the GAC assemblies and the issue should be resolved in the next hotfix release coming out in a week or two.” 

As I mentioned above, If you are not running the Metalogix copy jobs in PowerShell you will not be affected by this issue. But if your not running the copy jobs in PowerShell you should be; the jobs run at least 2x faster and you can set up a schedule in Task Scheduler to run your incremental jobs daily. This means that when its time to cut over,its very anticlimactic as the site admins, department admins, and end users have verified their content has been successfully migrated, they have time to get used to the new look and feel, and started using the new features prior to Go Live.

 

Cheers,

SharePoint 2013 Migrations, Are you having fun yet??

Wow what an incredible couple years SharePoint 2013 is still rockin on premise and online

Time Consuming Steps

However, there were two time consuming steps that didn’t have anything to do with the mechanics of the migration or the technology like moving WebParts, Pages, Items, Documents and creating Site Collections from Sites in Additional Content DBs.

  1. 1.The conversion of the Binary File Format documents to the OpenXML File Format.
  2. 2.Teaching folks why managed metadata is important and the creation of a Global Taxonomy, that includes Navigation

Luckily, there were two sources of information that made this easier but still not painless Waldeks Post – Building Global Navigation in SharePoint 2013 http://blog.mastykarz.nl/building-global-navigation-sharepoint-2013/ (it works) and the WAND Library. Unfortunately, though I have access to the Library the client did not choose to purchase the subscription so we didn’t get to take advantage of the huge library of terms.

WAND has started offering its entire catalog of taxonomies from the cloud, where you have the ability to subscribe monthly and download the parts that your Client needs to either start their taxonomy or fill out their taxonomy.  I have just been through a relatively easy migration 8 Content Dbs and a small 1TB of Content.

Missing Tools for In-Flight Conversion of Site Columns

The largest notable part missing, though metalogix will help you modify Multi-Choice Site Columns to Managed Metadata Site Columns In-Flight, there are NOT ANY migration products that will convert your binary File Format documents to the OpenXML File Format.

The Microsoft tools like Office Migration Planner will not work with a mapped drive using WebDav, but you can still use PowerShell though we found it was actually better to use a staging Farm, Convert all of your Documents using Word Automation Service. then perform a final migration where we modify the columns In-Flight to take advantage of the managed Metadata Site Columns.

This is important, if you want to take advantage of changing the Multi-Choice Site Columns to managed Metadata Site Columns In-Flight. Because if you have not converted all of your RTFs, HTMs, DOCs to DOCX then you will lose the metadata associated with these documents.

I’m not sure why metavis, sharegate, metalogix, tsunami or others do not build document conversion into their products since we need to be moving off the Binary format for many reasons and embracing the OpenXML Format

 

Cheers,

-Ivan
