In order to get SharePoint 2013 to accept the configuration of a content deployment path, there are a number of things that you need to do. If you don't do these things, when you click OK on the DeploymentPath.aspx page, you'll get this silly error "Sorry, this site hasn't been shared with you". It's an Access Denied error message. And it was written by the developer who didn't attend the "How to Write Good Error Messages" class – he or she must have been sick that day. So, I spend considerable time working around this problem in order to get it to work. Here are the steps I took and the things I did to make it work, with links to other blog posts for you to reference.

First, I took the advice of a post I can no longer find and added into the user policy permissions in Central Administration the account I had specified in the path configuration and gave it Full Control on both the source and destination web application. While this post didn't tell me specifically to do this, I went the extra mile anyways.

Secondly and thirdly, I enabled (or attempted to, anyways) the Content Deployment Source Feature. At first, I wasn't able to activate it, and since this is a test environment, I decided to kill the web application and just start over – using the OOB Team site template. After doing this, the feature activated without a problem. Now, this post tipped me off to the fact that if this feature isn't enabled, then you can *never* choose a source site collection on the deploymentpath.aspx page. Never. Never ever. So it needs to be activated. But it also tells you all of the hidden (!!!) features that you need to disable using powershell. The basic command is:

Disable-SPFeature –Identity <Name-of_Feature> -URL <http://server/site/subsite>

Happily, after activating the Content Deployment Source Feature, you're given a link in the Site Collection Administration (Content Deployment Source Status) that will list the features you need to disable before you can setup the site for content deployment. Be sure to have a Coke nearby, you'll run this command roughly 20 or more times to disable all of the features you never knew were running under the hood. You'll run this on the source site collection from which you wish to deploy content. You do not run this on the target or destination site collection.

Fourthly, after disabling all of the features, you then will need to ensure that Kerberos is running. NTLM, AIUI, will not work in this scenario. If I'm wrong on this point, please post back and let me know. I found an excellent post to follow to ensure and check myself on whether or not I had it all setup properly. You will need access to DNS, AD, IIS and SharePoint.

Last, I selected the Disable Source Status Check radio button in Central Administration àGeneral Settings àContent Deployment Settings.

After doing all of these things, I was able to create a new content deployment path. Now, to be fair to me, I don't have time to run a matrix of these five steps to see what is the minimum required to create a path. For example, I'm not entirely sure that Kerberos is needed, but based on some general reading about the error message, it seemed to me that it was wise to enable Kerberos. Nor am I sure that I needed to add in the account referenced above to the User Policy configuration in Central Administration. But I'm not going to remove it to find out. I have more important things to get done.

Let me know if you have any questions. Doing these five steps resolved the Sorry, this site hasn't been shared with you error message. I hope this helps you in your endeavors.

The 2013 Best Practices Conference for SharePoint is excited to announce that Jonathan Wynn from 5th Method will be speaking on How to Staff Your SharePoint Deployment. Here is the full abstract to his pre-conference session:

Are you the midst of a SharePoint staffing crisis? Did you ever step back and look at the skills your enterprise resources have? Do you know your team well enough to think they can fully execute on deploying and supporting SharePoint in your environment? This could be a disaster waiting to happen. If you've answered "Yes!" we need to talk! In this session I'll peel back the "proverbial" layers of the SharePoint Onion and see what's inside. I'll address long term support, in addition to staffing on deployment. You'll come away with a better understanding of how to map roles to people and how to build the right team of SharePoint Professionals. This interactive discussion will address:

  • Break down your staffing needs and define roles and skills than draw a correlation to SharePoint roles & skills
  • How does Governance play into this?
  • How to sell these positions to management
  • We'll explore the best practices on managing roles & responsibilities with a team of any size​

The 2013 Best Practices Conference for SharePoint is a peer-sharing conference for business leaders and stakeholders who are responsible for the success of SharePoint in their environment. This conference will focus on the "who", "what" and "why", but very little, if any, "how". At this conference, there are no sessions specifically targeting IT pro administrators, developers, web designers or end-users. This is a niche conference focused on helping business leaders establish and mature their best practices when it comes to their own SharePoint deployment. By listening to what others have faced and overcome and by hearing what they would not do again, each attendee is afforded multiple opportunities to down-step methods and ideas that have worked for others into their own deployment, helping them to discover their own best practice.

This conference is hosted by Mindsharp and sponsored by Summit 7 Systems, FPWeb, 5th Method, Highpoint Solutions, Corridor Company, SharePoint AMS, Agilepoint, RJB Consulting, Meritide, Nintex, K2 and Avepoint.

The 2013 Best Practices Conference for SharePoint is excited to announce that Devashri Gupta from Fresenius Medical Care will be speaking on the Ten Best Practices for Cultivating User Adoption. Here is the full abstract to her session:

SharePoint helps people to collaborate. However, as is the case with most change, not everyone adapts to new things at the same pace. For collaboration to thrive, having the full team participate is not only ideal but crucial. Fresenius Medical Care implemented SharePoint 2010 when manufacturing became the first global business unit in a decentralized multi-national company. SharePoint was the collaboration platform of choice from the President of the manufacturing business unit. Even with senior management support, there were pockets of resistance. There were technical global infrastructure challenges. These challenges were mitigated by focusing on the enthusiasts' pain points and systematically building the business case for SharePoint, such as:

•    A customized .NET solution to create an Activity Management web part won over the Treasury team from SalesForce.com

•    An Engineering team spread across 3 plants saved time in reporting project status

•    Global team sites and dashboards are bridging the gap across plants and cultures

Focusing on the benefits of SharePoint won over users who recognize the savings in time and effort in their everyday lives. Come learn how we helped drive user adoption in our multi-national company and while meeting the needs of our teams.

The 2013 Best Practices Conference for SharePoint is excited to announce that Mike Fitzmaurice from Nintex will be presenting a 3.5 hour pre-conference session on How to Build a Business Process Portal in SharePoint. Here is the full abstract to his session:

"SharePoint isn't just a place where work can be put and found — it's a place where work gets done. SharePoint provides a set of services well-suited to the task of managing and executing business processing at a wide range of complexity. Designing, cataloging, monitoring, measuring, and deploying process solutions are the hallmarks of of a business process portal, and delivering this kind of solution requires a set of strategic and tactical best practices. This seminar will provide explanations, recommendations, and examples of:

  • The key components of a business process portal
  • Organizational factors that increase/reduce success
  • Components of a well-designed process
  • Balancing centralization with decentralization strategies
  • Mapping business process portal requirements to SharePoint capabilities
  • Measuring processes from a portal
  • Usability/adoption/engagement considerations
  • Avoiding common pitfalls

The seminar will be conducted by Mike Fitzmaurice, Nintex's Vice President of Product Technology, who has spent more than 15 years on workflow and collaboration solutions at Nintex and Microsoft. Joining him will be Jacob Maciolek, who directs North and South American sales at Nintex and spent years delivering workflow and process solutions to customers at OBS, Australia's premier SharePoint consulting organization.

Note: while some — but by no means all, or even most — of the examples presented will make use of Nintex software, the focus is on concepts and best practices that are independent of any product (other than SharePoint itself of course)."

The 2013 Best Practices Conference for SharePoint is excited to announce that Seth Earley from Earley & Associates will be speaking on Better User Engagement through Better Organizing Principles: Best Practices for Leveraging Taxonomies in SharePoint. Here is the full abstract to his session:

"Our work environments are increasingly complex; and as a result, our user communities demand solutions that provide access to the right content at the right time. But, content keeps changing at faster and faster rates. How do we keep up? How do we create applications that provide new content in context – without significant maintenance costs? How do we ensure that our designs are comprehensive, robust, and sustainable?

This session addresses this challenge. Using real-world examples, we look at best-practice methodologies that ensure persistent business value from SharePoint solutions. The starting point is to blend both a user-centric and content-centric approach. What content do users need to perform their tasks? How can that content be optimally organized? Among other topics, we will cover important front-end methods for engaging the business in building an understanding of critical content types and various ways to leverage taxonomy. We'll walk through key information architecture approaches including, for example, audience analysis, use cases, heuristics, affinity modeling, bulletin board focus groups, and audience/task/content mapping. Attendees will leave the session with a strong understanding of training requirements for business analysts, UI designers, and SharePoint implementers, and most importantly, a model for engaging the business."
