Object reference not set to an instance of an object

Description

This message appears if a user tries to check out a file from a library.

Possible solution

  1. Check the log on the Microsoft® SharePoint® server for a message that looks similar to the following: "Warning: Alternate access mappings have not been configured. Users or services are accessing the site http://eps01shrpnt-02 with the URL http://eps01shrpnt-02.eps01.sw.rim.net. This may cause incorrect links to be stored or returned to users. If this is expected, add the URL http://eps01shrpnt-02.eps01.sw.rim.net as an AAM response URL. For more information, see: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=114854".
  2. Add the URL that the user is trying to access to the Alternate Access Mapping Collection on the Microsoft SharePoint server. For more information, visit yagyashree.wordpress.com/event-id-8214-object-reference-not-set-to-an-instance-of-an-object/.
