SharePoint 2010 on Windows 7 Exception – UserProfileException: Unrecognized attribute ‘allowInsecureTransport’

If you tried installing SharePoint 2010 Beta 2 on Windows 7 (or Windows Server 2008 R2) shortly after its release; you may have ran into the following error:

Failed to create sample data.
An exception of type Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.UserProfileException was thrown.  Additional exception information: Unrecognized attribute ‘allowInsecureTransport’. Note that attribute names are case-sensitive. (C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\WebClients\Profile\client.config line 56)
Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.UserProfileException: Unrecognized attribute ‘allowInsecureTransport’.

This error is caused by a known issue with Token Authentication and WCF. A fix has been released and is now available  at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=166231.

If you didn’t uninstall after receiving the error, simply install the hotfix, and re-run the SharePoint 2010 Products Configuration Wizard.

Stopping and Restarting WSS 3.0 and Microsoft Office SharePoint 2007 (MOSS)

There isn’t much information out there on the subject (at least not much that I’ve been able to find, and/or consider reliable.) The following steps describe my preferred approach to stop Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 and Microsoft Office SharePoint 2007 (MOSS) in most typical farm environments. It is based on Microsoft’s recommended approach for moving SharePoint related databases.

  1. Shut Down the World Wide Web Publishing Service in the front-end servers to prevent any users from accessing content. You may want to consider Quiescing the farm.
  2. In the Services snap-in on the server(s) running Central Administration, stop the following services:

    Microsoft Single Sign-On service (MOSS only)

    Office Document Conversions Launcher service  (MOSS only)

    Office Document Conversions Load Balancer service (MOSS only)

    Office SharePoint Server Search service (MOSS only)

    Windows SharePoint Services Administration service

    Windows SharePoint Services Search service

    Windows SharePoint Services Timer service

    Windows SharePoint Services Tracing service

    Windows SharePoint Services VSS Writer service

  3. On the server(s) running Central Administration, stop Internet Information Services by opening the command prompt and running iisreset /stop

If restarting the farm, restart the Server Running Central Administration first followed by any application servers and finally the web front end servers.

Please note that the approach may vary from farm to farm based on how its configured, for example: if the Central Administration server is also an application server or front end server, if there are any third party tools or services running on the server, or if the Shared Service Provider is being consumed by any other farms.

SharePoint 2007 Infrastructure Update – Read the instructions before you install

The Microsoft SharePoint Product Group has updated their blog post  Announcing: Availability of Infrastructure Updates post with some prerequisites  and installation instructions; they are highlighted in yellow and easy to follow. Please read them before installing the update.

If installing the Update for Office SharePoint Server 2007, be sure to read the instructions in TechNet:  Install the Infrastructure Update for Microsoft Office Servers (Office SharePoint Server 2007.)  Keep in mind that instructions will vary based on how your farm is configured; the following is an excerpt from TechNet addressing a multiple server farm scenario.

  1. Do the following:

    • If you are installing the Infrastructure Update for Microsoft Office Servers on a single computer server farm, click Next and then proceed to step 9.

    • If you are installing the Infrastructure Update for Microsoft Office Servers on the first server in a multiple computer server farm, on the Completing the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard page, do not click Next. Instead, repeat steps 1 through 7 on the next computer in the server farm.

    • If you are installing the Infrastructure Update for Microsoft Office Servers on one of the remaining servers in a multiple computer server farm, click Cancel on the Completing the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard page, and then click Yes in the dialog box that appears. Repeat steps 1 through 7 on the next computer in the server farm.

  2. After you have completed steps 1 through 7 on each computer in the server farm, return to the first computer and then on the Completing the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard page, click Next.

  3. If a dialog box appears that informs you that you must run setup on every server in the server farm, click OK.

The update is relatively large, so be sure you follow the instructions. For a detailed description of the update see the support article:  Description of the Microsoft Office Servers Infrastructure Update: July 15, 2008
