Enable mobile access to anonymous zone

SharePoint 2010 has two visualization types:

  • Desktop
  • Mobile

For the mobile view, the system provide to read the user agent and redirect the requestes to a system pages that after redirect the requestes to the mobile views (for the lists, doc libraries, etc.).

If you wanto to give the desktop view also to the mobile terminal to the anonymous zones, with the OOB settings you have an access denied because the system redirect your requestes to a system pages that is under permission. If you try to access to the public portal with a mobile terminal (with a desktop terminal you don't have problems), you receive the popup for the credentials.

So, to enable the view also for the mobile terminal, you need to modify the web.config file for each Web Front End.

Under the section

Show/Hidden xml code

View source
              <result type="System.Web.Mobile.MobileCapabilities, System.Web.Mobile, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a"/>

I recently upgraded my laptop to Windows 8 to take advantage of Hyper-V in the management of my virtual machines.

To get better performance using SharePoint, I bought an SSD and I moved my vhds to the new disk. At this point, I have to change the path of the VHD virtual machine settings and when Itry to do this, I got this error: "Can not add device virtual hard disk."

I tried to change the virtual hard disk file permission, but the error was alsways there.

To resolve this error, one must perform the following steps

  • Mount the VHD (double click on the file)
  • into disk management tool, put offline the disk
  • into virtual machine settings, remove the link to the old path of vhd, add a new physical hard disk and select the offline disk

Et voila, The system can manipulate the vhds on the SSD disk :D
