In my last post I have written about the missing WindowsFabric service causing ServiceBus to misbehave, and how to solve that problem. Well, once I solved that, I have hit another one.
Each time when the ServiceBus configuration wizard would try to join the SB Farm (SB Farm creation was successful), it would crash there, with the following errors in log:

Today I had a weird and frustrating situation with the Microsoft ServiceBus and Workflow Manager installation at one of my customers. There was no way I could configure ServiceBus, and the log was throwing a bunch of errors that I couldn’t really figure out (NullReferenceException and co.). So I decided the best thing would be to uninstall the ServiceBus from the scratch.
Issue #1: Windows Fabric not working
ServiceBus would not install, nor uninstall, since WindowsFabric service was, for some reason, not working. I guess the reason for that was one well known blog post which is suggesting to uninstall WindowsFabric before uninstalling ServiceBus. DON’T EVER DO THAT.

Microsoft WinDays is one of the largest, and coolest, Microsoft conferences in Europe. I could try to put it in numbers: > 2000 attendees, so-and-so much breakout sessions, cool speakers from allover the Europe (and some from the United States), but it would be just that – the numbers. To fully understand Microsoft WinDays, you need to attend it at least once. Believe me, it’s not like most of the other conferences in Europe. Nope.

Well, there is that thrilling feeling again: another Microsoft Network conference, the largest and the most important IT Conference in Bosnia and Herzegovina is approaching. This is definitely the most special conference for me: it’s a home game! And that is always a special thrill and a special pleasure. There is no place like 127.0.0.1.

I am happy and honored to announce a session at SharePoint User Group Rhein Ruhr, in Ratingen /near Düsseldorf/, Germany.
My topic will be “Beyond Social” – extending and developing on top of SharePoint 2013 Enterprise Social features. We will make a overview of possibilities, deep dive in server and client APIs, we’ll take a look at some weaknesses of the SharePoint 2013 OOB social stack, and how to avoid them with own development.

Microsoft and PlanB. have quite a tradition of organizing joint technical events. And those events proved to be really good: the topic is being covered from the beginning, for the decision makers, into the depth for the tech folks who would like to know more how the things function.
This time it’s cloud, more exact, Microsoft Online Services. If you would like to know what it is, what it is good for, what is the best way to use it, what can you do with it, and what is under the hood – please join one of our two events, in Unterschleißheim (Munich) and Cologne, in respective Microsoft offices.

There has been a lot of discussion in the past weeks about enterprise social computing, especially based on the Microsoft stack. Just look at the great posts from Jeremy Thake and Nick Patel. And, let’s not kid ourselves: Microsoft is market leader in that field – Salesforce and all the other potential competitors are quite behind. Microsoft invested a whole lot money and resources in the new social features stack that came with SharePoint 2013. And, bought a market leader, cloud-based enterprise social network called yammer, for 1.2 billion US$. Without intention of beating a dead horse, I just wanted to state my opinion on the topic here, an opinion that comes out of the experience that I have made in the past few months with my customers.

Whoever has worked with SharePoint 2013 Social API (Server and Client), has probably gained some gray hairs with the ominous “Internal Error Code…” exception, which are popping up like mushrooms when something goes wrong. Then you get something like:
"The operation failed because an internal error occurred. Internal type name: Microsoft.Office.Server.Microfeed.MicrofeedException. Internal error code: XY."
This is the list of the microfeed “Internal error” codes, deciphered. Enjoy SharePoint!
