Quick Tip To Resolve “Turn on TLS” Error with SharePoint On-Premises

I had this come up with a client recently and wanted to be sure to share the easy resolution given the vague information out there on this topic.  This just reminds me how important it is to not just blindly troubleshoot the symptom, but investigate fully before continuing in your attempts at resolution.

Dealing with Mixed Content Prompts in SharePoint After SSL Change

Security Warning: Do you want to view only the webpage content that was delivered securely?For the IE users out there, I’m sure you’ve come across this dialog once or twice in your life. On several of our recent client projects we’ve been doing a lot of changing over from unsecure to secure URLs via SSL certificates in SharePoint. Invariably, as soon as you enable SSL and log in to SharePoint, you get this wonderful prompt: Do you want to view only the webpage content that was delivered securely? Find out how to get rid of this for good...

Resolve Search Crawl Error When Using Self-Signed SSL Certificate with SharePoint 2010

While configuring a SharePoint farm for a client the other day, I came across a simple but problematic error with search.  We had requested a full SSL certificate for the farm, but I was a self-signed certificate so I could work with the site.  After configuring search content sources and I kicked off a full crawl, I got this error in the crawl log:

“The secure socks layer (SSL) certificate sent by the server was invalid and this item will not be crawled.”

Wells that’s a bummer.  Luckily there’s an easy fix.  What you need to do is configure search to “Ignore SSL certificate name warnings” via Central Administration.  TechNet has the documented steps.  After making this change and running a full crawl, voilà!

Success!  Of course you should get an official SSL certificate, but sometimes you get by with what you have. 

Redirecting HTTP Traffic to HTTPS in SharePoint

Recently, we deployed a large project for a multinational corporation and an interesting situation arose during the process.  The SharePoint portal for this particular client was accessible externally (outside of their corporate network).  This allowed users to access the sites worldwide without having to use a VPN to connect to the corporate network.  This is not uncommon in the SharePoint world, and we have implemented and configured a fair number of Extranet portals over the years.

This particular project was very document-centric (as are many in SharePoint), with multiple workflows for approval, updating, publishing, etc.  Because of this, the Microsoft Word client was heavily used in the application, and seamless client integration was a critical important requirement. 

 During beta testing, we discovered two strange occurrences:

1) Emails generated by the automated task creation (for document approval) had a mixture of URLs with http and https.

2) When opening a document for editing/approval, the user sometimes received an error that he/she could not approve or edit the task associated with the document.
