comment Will Sharepoint Sync User Profiles if only Domain Groups are Used?
It is usually better to manage users in SP using SP groups vs. managing users individually within SP. I am not saying SP groups are better than AD groups. SP groups can consume AD groups.

comment Will Sharepoint Sync User Profiles if only Domain Groups are Used?
The best practice is to use SP groups to manage SP security, as much as possible, as opposed to not using SP groups. But, in either case, the user profiles will synchronize.

comment Is there a non-InfoPath alternative to Google Forms?
Yes. You should be able to work with InfoPath Form Services.

comment SharePoint 2010 Playground Site
Notice that this VHD requires a Windows Server, like Windows Server 2008 R2, with Hyper-V role enabled. If you don't have this requirement then as Jason mentioned, try cloudshare.com (there is a fee).

comment Remote BLOB Storage and Sharepoint 2010
Also, to improve the performance in your scenario, you may want to enable BLOB Caching and make sure you plan and design your document management solution appropriately.

comment Is there a non-InfoPath alternative to Google Forms?
@saumilm - I have not worked with SP 2010 for Internet Sites product. SP 2010 for Internet Sites also has multiple editions, Standard and Enterprise. You will need the Enterprise edition. Reference: sharepoint.microsoft.com/en-us/internetsites/products/Pages/… "Publish Microsoft InfoPath forms in SharePoint Server 2010. InfoPath forms can be rendered to users who haven’t installed the program to gather InfoPath information."

comment SharePoint 2010 RBS and the 200GB content database limit
Then, I misread it. The only reasons that I see MS statement makes sense is having a content DB and BLOB storage of 200 GB+ will increase the backup and restore time. Also, if you perform the detach content DB upgrade approach, the upgrade process will take a long time.

comment Is there a non-InfoPath alternative to Google Forms?
That is true. What specific functionality you are looking for that is not in Web version? I have always been able to find a workaround. If you are using InfoPath 2010, the client and the Web version are very close in terms of functionality. The other option I see is to create the forms using ASP.NET, but that would involve more development time and cost.

comment SharePoint Client Object Model Assembly Distribution
After I distribute my solution along with the assemblies to client machines, I know that my custom solution will work on the client machines. But I would like to know for legal purposes, do I have to also install the SP Client OM Redistributable on each client machine?

comment Access Denied Retrieving Sites (Webs) Using PowerShell
You get my vote on this SHug. I tried all answers provided here. The answer you provided come closest to the solution that solved our problem. Basically, the farm admin was not the site administrator for each site collection, even though the central admin was saying that the farm admin is the site collection admin for each site collection. I know this doesn't follow MS best practices but the goal was to just make it work. –

comment Access Denied Retrieving Sites (Webs) Using PowerShell
I ran the script as a Farm Admin (Logged in to the SP Server as the Farm Admin, ran the PowerShell utility as an administrator). Can you direct me to a link or specify the steps for option #2?

Anders; Thank you for replying to my question. I was just curious about the message ending with the object being null. I basically want to get an assurance that we can safely ignore this message. BTW, lvl is level? :)
