For example, If your customer installed the Swedish based version of SharePoint then install the English language pack and you'll be able to run Central Administration in English if you want too. You don't ...

In my experience if you update the quota template it does not get applied to the sites that already use it. Through Central Administration apply another quota template to the site then reapply the previous one. If you have 100s or 1000s of sites to update you can use the following PowerShell. Hence, If you want to update the same template just set ...

Yes, it is possible - however I would recommend not doing it. Exposing command-line and administrative functions via web parts has the potential to expose security issues for your SharePoint farm, and allow users to potentially do tasks which they should not be able to do. To remotely execute commands, you can use PowerShell and connect to a remote computer ...

Wrote a blog on this some time back: http://vrdmn.blogspot.in/2012/06/use-html-pages-in-sharepoint-2010-html.html So basically there are two modes for file handling in SharePoint 2010. "Strict" and "Permissive". Strict mode entails that only the trusted filetypes in the web application are opened in the browser. For all the rest of the filetypes ...

SharePoint's solution deployment is a bit of a black box. I would try two things: 1) Use -Force on the Install-SPSolution cmdlet to instruct SharePoint to override files, etc., and hopefully result in "Deployed". 2) If #1 doesn't work, I would retract and remove the solution. Then restart the SPAdminV4 and SPTimerV4 Windows Services. Then re-add the ...

The Description text field correlates to the Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPWebApplication.Name property in the object model. This is the only way I know of changing this.

There's no Ribbon in the Timer Job config area, so that's not an option. Also, you can't add any custom actions to JobEdit.aspx easily either, so that's out the question, too.
