Connect-SPOService stopped working yesterday after 7pm

We have a PowerShell script that runs every hour to generate a list of SharePoint sites into a CSV file. It connects to SharePoint via these commands:

$  Username = "username@ourdomain.com" $  Password = ConvertTo-SecureString -String "dumdeedum" -AsPlainText -Force $  Credential = New-Object System.Management.Automation.PSCredential -ArgumentList $  Username, $  Password Connect-SPOService -Url https://ourtenant-admin.sharepoint.com -Credential $  Credential 

Sometime after 7pm last night, it stopped working and generates this error:

Connect-SPOService : The sign-in name or password does not match one in the Microsoft account system. At C:\Users\username\OneDrive – Tenant\My Scripts\Test-SharePointConnection.ps1:4 char:1 + Connect-SPOService -Url https://ourtenant-admin.sharepoint.c … + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ + CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (:) [Connect-SPOService], IdcrlException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.IdcrlException,Microsoft.Online.SharePoint.PowerShell.Connec tSPOService

I don’t know whether there is a fault with our SharePoint tenant or something has changed re-authentication. My suspicion is multi-factor authentication which is turned on for the account we are using but we turned that on months ago so perplexed why it might have just caused a problem.

Bluetooth Randomly Stopped

I’m using a Developer, Ubuntu shipped with it pre-installed Dell Precision 7530. Today while working, my bluetooth speakers beeped indicating they disconnected, I went to reconnect and in the bluetooth settings it’s saying “No Bluetooth Found. Plug in a dongle to use Bluetooth.” – except I’ve been using bluetooth for the entire 6 months I’ve owned the laptop so there absolutely is a dongle. I’ve restarted the computer several times, including fully off/on, and nothing. I’m at a loss. Any suggestions here?

I’ve seen other chats about bluetooth not working but they tend to be people that upgraded recently etc. – I haven’t. It just STOPPED after working fine and flawlessly.

I’m on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.

Authentication to Sharepoint Online stopped working

I have a C# app using CSOM (latest version v16.1.19223.1200), and it worked fine until about mid-Aug-2019. I verified that the actual password is still valid.

Code:

using (var context = new ClientContext(SharepointFolder)) {     // Can't use current user, tried workaround linked from https://sharepoint.stackexchange.com/questions/176375/use-current-users-credentials-for-sharepoint-online-c      var creds = System.IO.File.ReadAllLines(Path.Combine(Path.GetDirectoryName(Assembly.GetEntryAssembly().Location), "creds.txt"));     string userUpn = creds[0];     // var spassword = new System.Net.NetworkCredential(userUpn, creds[1]).SecurePassword; // tried this as well     var spassword = new SecureString();     foreach (char c in creds[1]) { spassword.AppendChar(c); }     context.Credentials = new SharePointOnlineCredentials(userUpn, spassword);      Utils.Log.Info($  "Getting page list from {context.Url}");      var pagesList = context.Web.Lists.GetByTitle("Pages");     context.Load(pagesList);     context.ExecuteQuery();  ///// throws: Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.IdcrlException  HResult=0x80048821  Message=The sign-in name or password does not match one in the Microsoft account system.      // ... } 

I’ve traced this with Fiddler, and basically got:

#   Result  Protocol Host                       URL 2   401     HTTPS   microsoft.sharepoint.com    /   <<<<<<<<<< Why not the path I provided in SharepointFolder? 3   502     HTTP    msoid.microsoft.com         /FPUrl.xml   5   200     HTTPS   login.microsoftonline.com   /GetUserRealm.srf 7   200     HTTPS   msft.sts.microsoft.com      /adfs/services/trust/2005/usernamemixed 8   200     HTTPS   login.microsoftonline.com   /rst2.srf 

Tracing Fiddler with browser access to the same address shows me the first access to SharepointFolder, getting 302-redirected to authentication and working fine.

Workflow has stopped working

I have a 2013 workflow that creates a sub-site when a new item is added to a specific list. This was working beautifully until today. Now, whenever a new item is added to the list, the item is added and then the webpage hangs, seemingly stuck before the workflow is started. There is no error. There is no entry in either the Workflow History or Workflow Tasks list. No helpful information in the ULS logs or event viewer.

What happened and how can I get it back up and running?

jetpack suddendly stopped working

Suddendly Jetpack stopped working on my (multisite) blog. I tried to disconnect and reconnect it, but now a timeout message appears:

The Jetpack server was unable to communicate with your site  https://xmau.com/wp/notiziole [IXR -32300: transport error:  http_request_failed cURL error 28: Connection timed out after  10001 milliseconds] 

Blog is reachable, and I can (manually) add other plugins giving username and password to WordPress. I changed theme and removed plugins, with no effect. My only doubt is that the server runs a very old version of PHP (5.6.40), but documentation says that it supports from 5.6.20.

What could I try?

Wifi suddenly stopped working on Ubuntu 18.04

I’m using a Ubuntu Budgie 18.04. I’ve been using it for a year without any problems, but suddenly the wifi stopped working, and in the network settings, I get the message “No Wifi Adapter Found”.

The result of the iwconfig command is

no wireless sets.  enp59s0 no wireless extension. 

and the result of the `lspci’ command tells me that I have a network controller: Intel Corporation Wireless-AC 9560[Jefferson Peak] (rev 10).

I tried some solutions I found but it doesn’t work. Please, help me!

SharePoint 2013 – One or more services have started or stopped unexpectedly – SPTimerV4

I’m getting this error message in CA. I checked the timer service and it is up and running. I tried with “Repair Automatically” but use.

ULS Error

The following services are managed by SharePoint, but their running state does not match what SharePoint expects: FIMSynchronizationService. This can happen if a service crashes or if an administrator starts or stops a service using a non-SharePoint interface. If SharePoint-managed services do not match their expected running state, SharePoint will be unable to correctly distribute work to the service.. Automatic repair is being attempted.
