Meet the Speaker series: Bob German

Categories: Announcements
Comments: No

Last December, I was talking to Lyman from the SharePoint Conference organizing team about cool ideas to do before the SharePoint Conference in May! One of the ideas I had that I thought would be awesome is a series of videos with the speakers from the SharePoint Conference that allows everyone from the community to learn a bit more about them, of course focused a bit about SharePoint. As I already interviewed over 20 speakers, it’s very interesting to learn how everyone got into SharePoint, from nuclear engineers, to hardcore developers that now only do no-code solutions! I will release two interviews per week for the next two months (or more if you guys like it!)!

Sixth video in the series is the awesome Bob German from Boston!

I am extremely happy to announce that my 17th Pluralsight course is published and this one is on getting start with using Microsoft Flow both from a user perspective, as well as an administrator! This course covers the theory , but most of the course is made of demos!

Microsoft Flow Usage and Administration

With over 130 million monthly active users, Office 365 is the productivity platform of choice for most enterprises in the world. Built within Office 365 is Microsoft Flow, a business process automation tool that allows you to streamline and automate business processes. In this course, Getting Started with Flow Usage and Administration, you will learn foundational knowledge of Microsoft Flow. First, you will learn the basic terms and concepts of Flow. Next, you will discover how to create your own workflows either starting from a template, or from a blank slate. Finally, you will explore how to administer MSFlow and set governance policies around it. When you’re finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of Microsoft Flow needed to automate business processes in your own organization!

I am super excited that my newest book with Trevor Seward on SharePoint 2019 is now up for pre-order on Amazon! Here is the official title and description:

Deploying SharePoint 2019

Deploying SharePoint 2019: Installing, Configuring, and Optimizing for On-Premises and Hybrid Scenarios

Update to a version of SharePoint that offers the best of both on-premise and the cloud using SharePoint 2019, the latest release of this cornerstone technology from Microsoft. Don your technical learning hat to get up close and confident on the new time-saving modern features of on-premise, and the many new security and hybrid settings.

Deploying SharePoint 2019 begins with a general introduction to SharePoint 2019, covering new features and expanding your knowledge and capability with the technology systematically. You will learn about the new world of SharePoint, and how it was “cloud-born” from Office 365. From there you will dive into learning how to design a physical architecture for SharePoint Server 2019 and get familiar with the key concepts of high availability (HA) and disaster recovery (DR) solutions.

What You’ll Learn

  • Install, configure, and optimize SharePoint 2019
  • Understand SharePoint 2019 as a hybrid framework
  • Get comfortable with new tools, such as Flow, PowerApps, and Power BI
  • Configure systems connected to SharePoint, such as Office Online Server and Workflow Manager
  • Migrate content and service databases from previous versions of SharePoint to SharePoint 2019
  • Implement HA and DR topologies with SharePoint 2019 to satisfy business continuity requirements

Who This Book Is For

Those tasked with installing, configuring, and maintaining SharePoint Server 2019 for their organization. This book assumes some working knowledge of a previous release of SharePoint Server, such as SharePoint 2013 or SharePoint 2016.

The book was tech reviewed by Microsoft MVP Thomas Vochten, so you can make sure I didn’t do too many mistakes . Also, I know the date on Amazon so far says September 30th, however the book is all written, and technical review is completed, so I am pretty sure this book will be shipping before SharePoint Conference North America in May!

Here are the Amazon links:

You can also pre-order from Apress at the following link: https://www.apress.com/us/book/9781484245255

While configuring hybrid on a SharePoint Server 2019 farm, I was trying to synchronize my taxonomy from SharePoint Online to my SharePoint 2019 farm. Unfortunately, the Timer Job failed with the error: The current user has insufficient permissions to perform this operation! But… the timer job doesn’t tell us what user it tries to connect to, so let me show you how to easily find this out!

On the Job History you also have some very useful information that will help you find out more about the error: The Server the Timer Job was running on and the Correlation ID if you want to look it up in the ULS!

Hybrid Taxonomy – The current user has insufficient permissions to perform this operation

Most of the time, for users such as insufficient permissions, more details about the error will be logged in the Event Log of the server where the Timer Job ran. When logging in CALSP04 and going in the event viewer, I can see the same error, as well as the “User” it gave the error on, in my case LAB\S-farm , which is my farm account.

Hybrid Taxonomy – The current user has insufficient permissions to perform this operation

When looking in my on-premises Term Store, I realized I had forgotten to add my farm account as a term store administrator! It’s a requirement for Hybrid Taxonomy to make sure that the account running the Timer Service (your farm account) has Admin rights on the Term Store!

Hybrid Taxonomy – The current user has insufficient permissions to perform this operation

After adding the necessary rights, my terms were synced successfully!

Hybrid Taxonomy – The current user has insufficient permissions to perform this operation
