Map SkyDrive Folder as Network Drive

leave a comment »

Very useful!!!

Use link:


  • Only an album or a primary folder in the SkyDrive can be mapped, the entire SkyDrive or the subfolders cannot be mapped.
  • The folder name must exists or you can create your own in SkyDrive. It may contain spaces.
  • Don’t forget to use the back-slash and the name of the folder properly.

    How to Rename Sharepoint 2010 Server

    with 9 comments

    To rename SharePoint 2010 server we can use to ways:

    1. We can use use of the Windows PowerShell Rename-SPServer cmdlet to rename SharePoint and then change server name.

    2. But if we have renamed server  (for example, in the case of cloned Virtual Machine)

    Solution:1.Verify that you are a member of the local Administrators group on the local computer in order to run Stsadm.2.On the drive on which SharePoint Server 2010 is installed, change to the following directory: %COMMONPROGRAMFILES%Microsoft sharedWeb server extensions14Bin.3.Type the following command, and then press ENTER: stsadm -o renameserver -oldservername <oldServerName> -newservername <newServerName>Note: 
    We do not recommend the use of the Windows PowerShell Rename-SPServer cmdlet because it does not work if the server on which the configuration database is stored has already been renamed.

    And when you run PowerShell on your server you get the following error: The local farm is not accessible. Cmdlets with FeatureDependencyId are not registered.

    And don’t forget change Alternate Access Mappings at Central Administration.
