Clone Content Database – SQL Copy + Generate SPSite GUID

Tried of waiting for Backup-SPSite / Restore-SPSite?  Me too.  Why not clone the SQL content database with SQL backup and restore?  

 

Well, SharePoint requires every Site Collection on a given to have a unique GUID.  When we clone a SQL content database and attempt Mount-SPContentDatabase an error comes up that the GUID already exists on the local farm.  No bueno.

Why not generate and replace the GUID?   In theory, we can UDPATE the SQL database internally with fresh new GUID numbers and SharePoint would recognize as new site collections.  No conflict.  That is exactly what the PowerShell below does.  By walking the schema, finding “SiteID” and “tp_SiteID” columns, and replacing the old GUID with a new GUID.

The larger the site collection, the better this works on time savings.  SQL internally can backup and restore a database much faster than waiting for Backup-SPSite/Restore-SPSite to export/import binary data across the wire to the SharePoint front end file system.

In the example below you can see a brand new team site created with GUID “82dad5a8-aa6e-4480-a10e-16cd2597c18b” in a dedicated SQL content database, taken offline, updated with PowerShell to replace old GUID with new GUID “0f59c302-92ea-4fac-b32b-799f3dd41264” and then successfully consumed again.

 

  • NOTE – You still need a unique URL, so be sure to run Mount-SPContentDatabase against a secondary web application.
  • NOTE – This is completely unsupported.  Use at your own risk.   Worked well on Dev and Test environments for me.

MC98642 – Updated Feature: Custom Sensitive Information Type support for DLP, Retention and eDiscovery

05-06-2017

To help you protect your sensitive data, we are expanding support for custom sensitive information types beyond Exchange to also include SharePoint, OneDrive, Outlook, Office Clients, and supported mobile apps. You’ll begin seeing this feature in the coming days.

This message is associated with Office 365 Roadmap ID 14796.
How does this affect me?

You’ll now be able to customize any of the 82 sensitive types we include out of box or create your own custom sensitive types for any data specific to your organization (e.g., Medical Record Numbers, Corporate IDs, etc.). These definitions are written in XML and uploaded via PowerShell to the Security & Compliance Center where they can be used in any DLP or Retention policies or eDiscovery queries.

We’ll be gradually rolling this out beginning today, and the roll out will be completed on April 17, 2017.

Any custom sensitive information types you’ve created in Exchange will automatically migrate to the Security & Compliance Center. While your sensitive types are being migrated, you will temporarily not be able to modify your sensitive types in Exchange. Any existing policies or Exchange Transport Rules that use those custom sensitive types will continue to function normally during and after the migration. Following this migration, you will manage all custom sensitive types in the Security & Compliance Center.

MC97665 – New feature: Public preview of Microsoft Graph Reporting APIs

04-13-2017

The usage reports in the admin center enable admins to understand usage of the various services within Office 365. Today we are announcing the public preview of the Microsoft Graph reporting APIs that enables you to retrieve the usage data programmatically. Using this API, you can retrieve the data available in the usage reports including organization level summaries per service as well as entity level (user, sites, accounts) detail usage information for different reporting periods of last 7/30/90/180 days.

MC98315 – Updated feature: Company Shareable Links will now open in SharePoint and OneDrive for Business

04-10-2017

We’re updating Company Shareable Links (the type of sharing links that are only accessible to users in your company) so that non-Office files such as pictures, videos and PDFs are going to be displayed in the SharePoint/OneDrive for Business user experience instead of automatically downloading the file or opening it in the browser. This will take advantage of all of our new web previewers, and is going to be a better collaboration experience for all your users.

We are rolling this out today, and the roll out will be completed by the end of May.
How does this affect me?

Today a Company Shareable Link to a picture, video or other supported files took the user outside the SharePoint user experience, instead opening the file in the browser if supported, or automatically download it – requiring an installed app to open it locally. We will now open files in our web previewers, simplifying collaboration. If we come across a file that we do not support (see linked article for all formats we support), users can quickly download the file like before.

MC98300 – Updated Feature: Improving the experience for the Content Embed web part

04-10-2017

To reduce the risk of embedded content being pulled in from unknown sites, Office 365 is setting a default list of sites and domains that are recognized as safe. We are rolling this out today, and the roll out will be completed in the following days.
How does this affect me?

We are updating the default list of sites and domains (found in the HTML Field Security setting) to include additional, commonly used websites from Microsoft and Google services. This will improve the content embedding experience.
What do I need to do to prepare for this change?

There is nothing you need to do to prepare for this change. Please click Additional Information to see the list of sites we are adding, as well as how to change the domains in the HTML Field Security setting list.

MC98017 – SharePoint Newsfeed apps to be removed from the Windows Store and App Store (iOS)

04-05-2017

On May 31st, 2017, we will be removing the SharePoint Newsfeed mobile apps from the Windows Store and the App Store (iOS).

Shortly after the SharePoint 2013 release, we acquired Yammer, announcing the core focus of social innovation would come through updates to the Yammer service, with ongoing integration with SharePoint and Office 365.
How does this affect me?

On May 31st, the SharePoint Newsfeed mobile apps will be removed from the Windows Store and the App Store (iOS). For users who previously downloaded the SharePoint Newsfeed app, and were able to connect to their on-premises SharePoint Server, the SharePoint Newsfeed app will continue to work. However, after May 31st, 2017, the SharePoint Newsfeed mobile apps for Windows and iOS will no longer be supported and no longer receive any updates. Microsoft will not provide support for the mobile apps beyond May 31, 2017.

This message only applies to the removal of the SharePoint Newsfeed mobile apps. It does not impact the SharePoint Newsfeed service within Office 365; that will remain untouched at this time if your company is currently using the SharePoint Newsfeed service.

MC97220 – Your Intune account is being migrated to the new Intune on Azure admin experience

03-24-2017

We plan to migrate your Intune groups to Azure AD-based security groups in the next 10 weeks.
How does this affect me?

During the first phase of your migration, you may see new group objects in Azure Active Directory (AAD) of your Intune groups.
 
After you have successfully migrated:
 
– We will have created the new objects and targeted all of your existing policy to the new groups.
– You’ll see a message saying: “Your Intune groups are now managed in Azure Active Directory,” with a link to take you to the new Azure Portal.
– You’ll be able to use the public preview of the new Intune administration experience in the Azure portal. 
– You’ll be able to take advantage of top User Voice requested features that are available for you, such as a modern browser and dynamic groups.
 
There is no downtime during this migration.
What do I need to do to prepare for this change?

Make sure you don’t have any configurations that would block your migration. By now, we would have notified you in Message Center if you’ve had anything we know about, like groups that use exclusions. We’ll send you additional messages if we find we can’t migrate you due to other configuration issues.
 
You might also want to notify your helpdesk staff about these changes and inform your AAD Admin that, before the migration happens, they’ll see Intune created groups in AAD.

MC96176 – Planned Capacity Balancing Maintenance

03-14-2017

We have maintenance planned for SharePoint Online. In order to increase datacenter capacity, we’ll be conducting planned balancing operations during the month of March.
