Where is My Site?

In pre-beta release, creating My Site was not any different then creating one in SharePoint 2007. This has changed in Beta2 build of SharePoint 2010. Even in Ignite training lab manuals this step has not been documented correctly.

Follow the steps in this post to create My Site in SharePoint 2010.

1. Click [JUSTSHAREPOINT\Administrator] link.


2. Click [View and manage your profile.] link.


3. Click [My Content] link.


4. In the [Microsoft Office can remember your My Site to synchronize documents stored here in Outlook and to show it when opening and saving files. Do you want Office to remember this site (‘http: //server/my/personal/administrator/’)? Only select ‘yes’ if you trust this site.] Message box, click [No] button.


5. Click [My Profile] link.


6. Click [My Network] link.


7. Click [My Content] link.


That’s it! My Profile, My Content and My Network have now been setup for you!

  1. This is pretty cool for someone wanting to do it all in their personal page. For me, when I attempt to add a site collection, just using Central Admin -> Web Application Manager – the current application:port mode seems unable to use the actual host-computer name as SP2007 did, but when I use the Web-App name:8100 (arbitrary) then attempt to navigate TO the new collection with IE, it’s unable to find the site collection JUST CREATED – usability miracle, no?

  2. We have created My site on sharepoint 2010, and recently some users cannot access a link pointing to My site from on the intranet
