[SDP 5][B97B514B-186E-4A7C-8C52-9D9A7CB3141B] Diagnostic SharePoint Engineer Troubleshooting Helper 2013 (SETH2013)


The Diagnostic SharePoint Engineer Troubleshooting Helper 2013 (SETH2013) manifest detects certain problematic conditions that may exist in the configuration of a server that is running Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013 or Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2013.

Important Problematic conditions are checked only on the server on which this manifest is run. To make sure that you have maximum coverage, we recommend that you run SETH on each server in a SharePoint farm.

This article describes the function of the SETH manifest file.

Required permissions

The rules in the diagnostic package use the SharePoint Windows PowerShell snap-in for information about your farm. Therefore, the account that is used to run the diagnostic package must be the farm account or be given the required permissions through the Add-SPShellAdmin command. The farm account is the account under which the timer service and central administration site's application pool run.

Some rules in this diagnostic package must also have local server administrative permissions to use remote and local administrative tools and also to access secure system locations such as the registry. You can use the following table to reference the permissions that are required for each rule.

Permission codeDescriptionRequired permission
