I'm trying to configure FrameMaker 10 to use SharePoint 2010 as a CMS. I have the URL and Port number, and I'm the owner of the site collection that I want to use (the one pointed to from the URL). When I log in from the Repository Manager, I can see the libraries I've set up there, but if I click a plus sign to browse any of the libraries, I get an eror message: "Object reference not set to an instance of an object." I'm afraid that is not a very useful error message.
A couple more clues: I can command FrameMaker to upload a file or an active file, and I do get a progress bar that eventually disappears. But the file does not actually upload. Same thing for creating a folder - it appears that it is going to work, but when I check SharePoint, no folder was actually created. In fact, if I search the library there is no sign of the file or folder that FrameMaker attempted to upload. Nor do I get any error message.
From the context of the messages here relating to SharePoint, it seems many do have it working, however I'm at a loss as to see how this was achieved. Ideas?
try this is SP
Expand “SharePoint Web Services” and select “SecurityTokenServiceApplication”
Double click on “Authentication”(under IIS)
Disable “Forms Authentication” and ASP.NET impersonation
Confirm that only Windows and Anonymous Authentication are enabled
A final update here - I got this working correctly today. It seems the library types I had chosen, or their configuration caused the problem. I happened to be looking at the repository manager and noticed that the Shared Documents library was also visible. When I clicked on that, it opened just fine. That was the clue I needed to get the whole library working. I killed the document libraries I had created and set up the structure in the one that worked.
I just uploaded all of my books and the related files. I turned on versioning, and tested a checkout / edit / check in cycle and it all seems to play fine.
Thanks for the help guys!
