Share Point Error: Cannot Add User...

Q: Share Point Error: Cannot Add User...

When I try to add users to a SharePoint site I receive the following message:

"Cannot add user because a user with that name already exists."

Some additional information:

1. I am one of the administrators of the site (there is one other administrator).
2. We both receive the same error when trying to add users.
3. We are using SharePoint 3.0
4. Under the "Manage Users" page the people we are trying add do not show up as users.

Thanks.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

Good Afternoon,

I am active duty in the USAF and my squadron has recently stated pushing us to use Microsoft SharePoint more and more. This may be an AF wide trend, not sure; the point is I have no idea what SharePoint is, what it does, how it works, or what capabilities and advantages it might bring to me and my co-workers. I was looking for someone who might be able to answer these questions, and might also be able to discuss some of the disadvantages of SharePoint. Also, are there other programs similar to SharePoint that can do the same things, or possibly have even greater capabilities. Thank you very much for you time and help.

Hello.

A sbscription has been created for a report. When selecting "Manage subscription" option from the down arrow, the page doesn't load. The only way is to delete and recreate it. It runs fine, then when you want to manage it again, the page doesn't load or it takes a very long time to load (if at all).

Any help is appreciated.

hi all
first i am sorry i am so much biggenr in the networking issues
anyways

i have an access point device , and i have windows 7 on my computer , can i share my files through my the wireless so i can access to them by using another computer having a wireless adapter ?

if yes so how can i do that

i hope someone helps me

thank you
 

A:can i use an ACCESS POINT device to share my files through a network ?

If you have computers on the same local area network (LAN) they can communicate with each other. If you connect the computers to the ACCESS POINT device (I assume this is a wireless access point, or WAP) the computers can file share.

Short description for Windows 7 and 8 file and printer sharing:

Go into the Network and Sharing Center from the Control Panel or from the Network icon in the Notification Area. Your network must be designated 'Private' (or 'Home' or 'Work'). Click on Change advanced sharing settings. In the Private or Home or Work section you can configure File and printer sharing, Public folder sharing, and Password protected sharing.

You may want to change the Workgroup name. To check it or change it right click on "Computer" and select "Properties."

You must uninstall or properly configure any non-windows firewall (security suite).

I have an old WD NetCenter network drive (drive is not shared thru a computer - but directly connected to the network via ethernet) which has two shares that are password protected. But, there is no user name and no way to add a user name to the shares - just a password.

Under WinXP, it's possible to map those shares as drives or to just connect using Windows Explorer - in either case, by entering only the password for the share, leaving the user name blank in the login prompt.

Win7 (Home Premium 64bit) seems to REQUIRE the entry of a user name in addition to the password and since there's no user name associated with the shares, I'm not being allowed access. I can remove the password for the share and then connect easily from Win7 - but, I do not want to remove the password.

Is there a way to get Win7 to allow me to leave the user name blank in the login prompt?

To All,I was unable to access a folder on a Win7 Home Premium PC from a WinXP Pro SP3 PC even though the user accounts on both PCs were in the same workgroup and had identical names. Also I had done the following:Use Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center then...click "Choose homegroup and sharing options" then...click "Change advanced sharing settings" then...scroll down to HomeGroup connections and press the following radio button: "Use user accounts and passwords to connect to other computers".I had also modified the properties of the folder to indicate sharing "with specific people", and the selected user account name was indicating read/write permissions.The key step I had overlooked was to apply a password to the user accounts on both PCs.I'm writing this because the requirement for passwords on both accounts hadn't been emphasized enough in any of the references I had consulted. The info may have been there, but it just didn't sink in.Since I am a relative newcomer to Win7, I stand ready to be corrected. If you know of a way to give read/write access to a folder on a Win7 box for a specific user on a WinXP box (and ONLY that specific user) without having passwords on the user accounts in both machines, please let me know.Thank youRayS

All users, both guest and users that authenticate as a local user on the win2k box, can use \\fully\qualified\UNC\paths to access any of the shares, such as \\Win2kComp\SHAREFOLDER and it works fine, they can access the contents of the folder.

Guest users, while able to use the UNC path, cannot "browse" the network. This means they cannot "net view Win2kComp" to get a list of shares, they cant use network neighborhood or computers near me to get a list of shares, all they get is an error commonly reffering to having the wrong permissions, even though UNC PATHS WORK FOR GUEST!

We recently switched from Centennial aircard to Verizon aircard (USB760) for our laptop. We have two user accounts on our windows 7 pc. With Centennial we could switch between user accounts without closing sierra wireless manager but when I switch to another user now, a message comes up saying vzaccess manager running in another account and we cannot use the internet until we have shut it down in the account it is running in - which is a pain. I have tried right clicking vzaccess manager in all programs and it does not have a share option. I also went to properties under vzaccess manager and found a setting to share and set it up but it still will not share. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
 

A:Can't share internet connection between user accounts

Internet connection sharing is typically something that's done between computers/devices, not users. It 'should' be that any available internet connection is always available to any user who logs onto the computer. However, since your network connection is being managed by the vzaccess manager, it's something of a different story entirely.

I would recommend contacting Verizon Technical Support and asking them to step you through the process of configuring your system to connect without using the vzaccess manager. Once they've done that, uninstall that program and all should be well.

Hello
 I am trying to add a local user permission to a network folder and I cannot get window 7 to choose the correct scope. WinXp handles this like a charm.
I go start\run \\computername\share
I right click on the folder in question and choose security. I then choose edit and then add
I am going to change "From this location" from the domain to the remote computername
I then type the name of the local user that I would like to add. Click ok.
I end up with the "name not found window"
In the security window if I choose advance and click find. I end up finding only the "Built-in" security names.
I get around this by using XP, but my xp days are numbers are I have been told I have to give up that machine.
Win7 seems to always be stuck on searching for domain names rather than changing the scope to the local names. 
hours and hours of searching returns random noise articles about how to set security on folders.

This seems like a basic concept, but I can't quite figure out how to make it happen.

In a domain environment with Win7 systems, I want to create a shared folder that all domain users have access to. However, when any domain user accesses the share, they should only be able to access certain subfolders.

For example, assume the shared folder is \\server\shareme, and it contains subfolders \aaa, \bbb, \ccc, and \ddd. Further assume that there are three domain users: user1, user2, and user3. How can I allow user1 to browse \shareme, but not open any of the subfolders; allow user2 to browse \shareme and also open any of the subfolders; allow user3 to browse \shareme but only open subfolder \aaa?

Any help much appreciated.

A:allow access only to certain folders within a share based on user

Do you know how to write scripts at all>?

If not, than you have to right click on the folder and apply permissions to each specified user on the machine or network. It would be easier if you had a spare computer lying around that would act as a server, but its not a necessity. The only downside is that all users on the network need to have had to at least viewed the shared folder at least once.

Hi GOB and welcome
I dont think you can. XP was a very different animal. You can change the docs folder to a new location but there is a symbolic link that has to be kept there so win 7 knows where to go. I am not sure but with a move like that you may experience some odd weirdness

Hi there,

I've set up sharing on my Windows 7 PC and Laptop, which is working fine. However, I've created several custom libraries on my PC to cover various projects I'm working on (e.g. London Project). However, from my Laptop, when I try to access the libraries on my PC (via the Homegroup in the navigation pane), I can only access the default libraries (ie Documents, Music, Pictures and Video). I can't see the new libraries (e.g. London Project) that I've created. Unfortunately, I can't seem to work out how to share these new libraries I've created - tried all the usual 'Right click - Properties' etc., and going via the Homegroup settings to no avail.

I *can*, however, access the folders which are indexed within these new libraries on my laptop, *if* I go via the 'Network' in the navigation pane. BUT this doesn't show me the libraries at all.

Any ideas greatly appreciated (but not as much as a definitive solution).

Cheers, Hawkeye.

A:Cannot share new (user created) library on Homegroup

When you right click, share with, what do you see?



Notes
If you don't see the Share with menu, you might be trying to share an item on a network or other unsupported location. It also won't appear when you select files outside your personal folder.
If you're trying to share with specific people in your homegroup but don't see their names in the File Sharing wizard, they might not have linked their Windows user account to an online ID. You might also need to install an online ID provider on your computer. For more information, see What's the benefit of linking my online IDs with my Windows user account?
If you try to share something in one of the Windows 7 Public folders, the Share with menu will display an option called Advanced sharing settings. This option takes you to Control Panel, where you can turn Public folder sharing on or off.

Well, I am totally baffled (and it takes a lot to baffle me!). I want to share the My Documents folder from an XP machine with ONLY one user (the administrator) on a networked Win 7 machine. I have turned off simple sharing on the XP machine. I hate XP!! So complicated to do anything. Anyway, under security, I have tried share this folder, and not to share folder. I have gone into Advanced and messed around with permissions, taking out Everyone, using Admin only, using Network. At one point I ended up not being able to access My Documents on the local computer and had to jump through many hoops to change ownership and disable read only so that the user could use her own files!

The problem is, under Advanced in the permissions area, I cannot see the users on the remote pc to choose which one should be allowed access. I have read countless help suggestions, but none of them tell me how to actually find a particular user on the Win 7 pc and give ONLY that user permission to read (not to change) the files in My Documents on the XP pc. Can anyone give me a step by step process to do this? I work on computers all the time (I am a computer consultant) so it is embarrassing that I cannot set up this seemingly simple situation. Ugh!
 

A:Set permission for just one remote user to share a folder

1. Find out the name of the account on the remote machine (you may have to ask the owner of it).
2. Add a new account on the XP with the same name as on the Windows 7.
3. Give the desired permissions to that newly created account.

EDIT: It's simplest if you use the same password on both machines. Else you'll need to tell the Windows 7 account owner the XP's password.

Strange behavior...

So on the computer I can see that:
Users folder is Shared
UserA folder is Shared
Guest is Not Shared

When I browse the Network from another computer, I see the UserA folder but cannot access it with an Access Denied.

BUT...the strange thing is I can browse Users->Guest->... even though it's NOT SHARED!
I laso can see a "hidden" Users->Default->... folder.

I just don't get it...

EDIT: btw, I don't have a password set on UserA.

firstly about two years ago i was making a game when suddenly my computer slowed down to the point where it took 15 mins to load a working version of windows. about half a year ago my dad got it to work faster after a bout 3 installs after that i estabalished a network with my new PC then the old one stopted working. so i resorted to my dad's other pc(i couldn't get the file transfer on that one either). a few days ago i got my old pc to work properly but now i am having trouble getting a file share on Windows and even Ubuntu but so far i would just like to know how to fix this probvlem on Windows.
 

A:it works, it breaks then works to the point where i can't share files

Really need more information to be able to help.
What is the make/model and operating system of each computer?
How are they connected?
Do the compuiters show in each other's Network display?
Can the computers ping each other by IP Address and Computer Name?

This is a general trouble shooting guide for simple problems.

Each computer must have a Unique Name.
Each computer must have at least one user account with a password. Vista will not share with computers that do not.
All the computers must have the same Work Group Name.
File Sharing must be turned on for each computer.
Firewalls must be configured to allow sharing.
To Turn on File Sharing.
For the XP computers go to Control Panel, Network Setup wizard.
Click next.
Click next.
If you are running wireless, the ethernet card will be listed. If connected by ethernet and you have a wireless card it will be listed.
For right now, just select "Ignore the listed connections".
Click next.
Select "This computer connects to the internet by a residential gateway".
Click next.
Enter the Work Group name.
Click next.
Select "Turn on File and printer Sharing"
Click next.
Verify all the information is correct.
Click next.
I would select "Just finish the wizard" and not make a disc. It take about the same amount of time to run the disc as to manually enter the data.
Click next.
Click finish.

A:My XP Install Fails at Graphical User Interface Point

Hello HairyKiore

If you are using a USB mouse try a PS2 mouse. Don`t use a USB keyboard either.

Also disconnect/unplug everything unnecessary and see if that helps

I have I have registry key that points to C:\Data. I'd like to change it to %USERPROFILE%\DATA (C:\Documents and Settings\<current user signed in>\).

%USERPROFILE% doesn't seem to work in the registry. Would someone know what I need to type to point it to that file path?
 

A:Registry - point path to current user profile

Anyone know? =)

Hi...I am trying to install XP on a friends PC...I have taken all cards etc out so it has one 20 GB hard drive that has been wiped completely clean and a graphics card and I have attached my own ASUS DVD drive .....The CPU is a Pentium 3 800EB mhz...The Bios is American Megatrends Inc A6309MS V1.5 051900 and on startup displays these numbers along the bottom ...
62-0519-000000-00101111-071595-V694V686-1V133001-F
There is a single stick of 128 memory in it...I do not know the make of the MB...
So to the install.....it fails at the end of the first phase....immediately before entering the GUI....I let it run down the 15 seconds and it reboots but comes up with a blank screen.....
Now I have two XP installation Disks ...One with SP2 on it the other hasn't ...The one with SP2 is being seen as an upgrade disk ..I know it isn't but I am going to take it to experts to verify this....???
I have tried both numerous times with the same result....To add to this I tried installing Windows 98....YES it installed without a sign of a glitch which led a friend much wiser than me to say the XP disks are no good...but I dispute this...

I would be extremely grateful if anybody can shed some light on what the problem is here ...Thankyou HK..
