comment Most Efficient Way to Scan Large Volume of Records/Documents into SharePoint
The use of BLOB storage is not necessarily a good option if the documents and records, on average, are < (80 - 100) KB (download.microsoft.com/download/2/C/D/…) But, I will surely use this option for very large documents, records, and assets.

comment Most Efficient Way to Scan Large Volume of Records/Documents into SharePoint
1. I will use the Content organizer feature to route the records to the appropriate record center, once I have the records scanned and uploaded into SP. 2. I will use the built-in IFilter of the Windows Server to OCR TIFF records. 3. I am interested to find a proven scanning infrastructure hardware/software solution. I am guessing HP or Xerox have some sort of software to make the process of scanning and importing docs/records into SP easier.

comment Auto-Update Statics On/Off
Got it! Just to add to that only certain SP DBs should have these options set to off. They are: Configuration databases, Content databases, User Profile Service Application Profile databases, User Profile Service Application Social databases, Web Analytics Service Application Reporting databases, Web Analytics Service Application Staging databases, Word Automation Services databases, WSS_Logging (ref: blogs.msdn.com/b/chunliu/archive/2011/11/17/…)

comment Does Sharepoint 2010 Enterprise work on SQL Standard version?
As Hugh mentioned, the Enterprise edition allows you to scale up the SQL Server, allowing you to add more memory and CPU core to the SQL Server and do more enterprise level stuff. Unless you are deploying a large scale SP farm then you do not need the Enterprise edition. Enterprise edition is a lot more expensive; and it gets really expensive as you add more processor core. In your case, I would go with the Standard edition of SQL Server 2008 (or 2008 R2 or 2012). Avoid the Express edition if you can because sooner or later you will hit the express edition limitations.

comment File size limit for a document in SharePoint is actual file size or file size on disk
The difference is minuscule, but it is based on the file size not file size on the disk.

comment Will this query return ALL files modified today?
Also, the Usage database is the only SharePoint database that is OK for you to read against. As Per Jakobsen mentioned, you should never directly access or modify any other SP database.

I will point you to two blogs where they show you how to configure this service: blogs.msdn.com/b/ecm/archive/2010/05/03/… and codeproject.com/Articles/70865/SharePoint-2010-Logging-Database

If you have configured the Usage and Health Data collection in Central Administration Web site, you can use the Web Analytics reports to get the insight you are looking for, plus more.

TechNet Library lists the browsers supported in SP 2007. Chrome is not one of them. (ref: technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc263526(office.12).aspx)

comment Is it recommended to store high volume transaction data in SharePoint Lists?
I would also go with the SQL database option. You can always pull that data into SP using BCS and External Content Types.

comment Any way to Central Administration?
And to access Central Administration Web site you must be a Farm Administrator or have access to the account that is a farm administrator. To access some CA level functionality the account you use to access CA Web site also needs to be part of the server's (the server CA is running on) Administrators group.

comment Custom Validation on Infopath Fields? C#
Depends on the complexity of the validation. If you can use regular expression, etc. then go with that option. From my experience, I recommend that you avoid using the InfoPath code-behind as much as possible or try not write too much logic in the code behind. Maintaining the code behind is a headache and makes your IP solution more complex and flimsy (there are some compatiblity issues as well, msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb772074.aspx). You can also write a service to do the validation for you. You can then consume this service in your IP form.

comment Which is the maximum size allowed by database in Sharepoint Foundation 2010?
Avoid using the WID. This DB is very limited. If you have the option to use the Express edition with 10 GB (in SQL Server 2008 R2) with no fee, why would you want to use the WID?

comment Outgoing Email Not Configured
The SMTP service Role is running on the same server (please see the new screenshot above). The problem is I have install/upgraded SP 2010 SP1 on Windows Server 2012. According to this MSDN article (msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd631899.aspx): "You can’t install SharePoint Foundation 2010 on Windows Server 2012. If you want to use the standard configuration on Windows Server 2012, you must skip the installation of SharePoint Foundation 2010."

comment Outgoing Email Not Configured
I removed the first entry by clicking on "Remove Server", went to configure outgoing e-mail settings, enter the mail settings, click OK, went back to "manage servers in farm" page, still says Not Configured. If I click on the server (first column), I get access denied. But, I can remove the server.

comment sharepoint 2010 Remote Blob Storage , RemoteBlobStorageSettings is false
You should not install the RBS client library by double clicking the RBS_X64.msi (which will run the wizard). Instead, you must use the msiexec command to run the msi file. This is because running the wizard will set certain default values that are not recommended for SharePoint. technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee748631.aspx In fact, in the article you are referencing in your question, they also mention this.
