SharePoint Troubleshooting by Ayman El-Hattab

Yesterday, I released a new, free bonus issue of the Understanding SharePoint Journal. Written by Ayman El-Hattab, this issue walks you through different techniques and tools that are valuable in fixing problems in SharePoint. Quite frankly, this should be part of the SharePoint documentation, but then again…

What I like in particular about Ayman’s issue is that he targets not only developers, but also administrators. Even if you have no idea about the difference between a class and an object (in my world, that means you are not a developer) you’ll still learn plenty of tips and tricks to help you out.

Here are some of the topic covered:

  • Debugging Your SharePoint Code
  • Unified Logging Services (SharePoint Trace Logs)
  • Windows Event Logs
  • Post-deployment Troubleshooting
  • SharePoint Troubleshooting Toolbox (excellent overview of various tools)

In any case, to get the issue, you need to be on the USPJ mailing list. You can sign up on the Understanding SharePoint Journal web page, and you’ll get the password to the free SharePoint resources within a couple of minutes.

Let me know what you think, and feel free to send feedback to Ayman as well. He has published his email address in his blog:
