The following sites are using templates that are not yet supported after upgrade (or) Sites that rely on these templates cannot be upgraded at this time, preventing upgrade of this site collection

Issue: when we upgrade any site from SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2013 and that site contains custom site definitions, we face the issue.

Solution: Ensure to follow the steps below to resolve the issue.

1.   Both versions of the site definitions (14 and 15) need to be present  in respective hives at the time of performing upgrade. If either of them is not there then the above error will show up.

2.   Uninstall > Remove  and  Add > Install. This had removed the previous site definition files (one and template folder) from 14 hive and added latest files to 15 hive.

Unknown SQL exceptions - Event 5586



Unknown SQL exceptions - Event 5586

Alert Name:   Unknown SQL exceptions

Event ID:   5586

Summary:   Microsoft SharePoint Foundation uses Microsoft SQL Server 2008 databases to store configuration settings and most of the content for the Web site. For example, all pages in the site, files in document libraries, files attached to lists, and information in lists are stored in the content database, and security and permission settings along with other configuration settings are stored in the configuration database in SQL Server 2008.
Microsoft SharePoint Foundation uses a service account to communicate with the database on behalf of a user request. This service account can be either a specific user name or password (domain name and password), or a predefined system account, such as Local System or Network Service. When a SQL Server database is created, a value for the maximum database size is set. Each database has a separate database size setting. Note that a Web application might be associated with one or many databases.

Symptoms:   The following symptom might appear:

·         This event appears in the event log: Event ID: 5586 Description: Database full error on SQL Server instance <instance name> in database <database name>. Additional error information from SQL Server is included below. <SQL error message>.

How the user authentication works between share point and AD



 How the user authentication works between share point and AD

In this article I am providing the details of How the authentication process works between the share point and the AD.

1.   Client hit SharePoint site
2.   SharePoint redirects client to Identity Provider (AD) in order to get a security token
3.   Client attempts to authenticate to trusted Identity Provider (AD)
4.   The identity provider's (Security Token Service) will validate the username and password and provide a security token to a client.
5.   The client has a security token (authenticated) and submits it to SharePoint STS "Security Token Service"
6.   SharePoint STS receives security token from client and determines if we trust the issuer of that token "Identity Provider"
7.   STS then performs claims augmentation
8.   STS issues client new SAML token
9.   Client request resource "site" with new SAML token
10.   SharePoint consumes SAML token, "validates authentication successful", and builds an SPUser object in order to authorize to the secured resource
