Error Accessing SharePoint Document Library from Microsoft Office Open or Save As Dialog

leave a comment »

We got this issue from Windows Server 2008 from Citrix users. They tried to open or save document directly to SharePoint, but a dialog couldn’t browse into needed folder. And this works fine from Windows Server 2003.

Our server was in Trusted Sites with automatic login. The main problem was in WebDav client – it don’t get and use any browser sertting (so do nothing with Trusted Sites and so…)

Resolution for Windows Server 2008:

1. Need to install Desktop Experience with WebDav client and reboot server. (There was issues with Citrix after installation – need more investigation about.)

2. At AppServer need to add multiple-string key AuthForwardServerList to [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\WebClient\Parameters] and add all SP host-headers (like https://*.your-sharepoint.company.com)
