By day, I'm a mild-mannered SharePoint infrastructure consultant for a Microsoft Gold partner. By night, I sleep. I've been working with SharePoint since 2006.

I have taken the time to write a few Microsoft exams and in turn Microsoft has graciously granted me the following certifications:

  • MCITP: SharePoint Administrator 2010
  • MCTS: SharePoint 2010, Configuration
  • MCTS: Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007, Configuration
  • MCSE 2003
  • MCSA 2003

    comment How to remove “orphaned” users from a site collection?
    stsadm -o migrateuser is what I had implied when I said "We migrated our users and service accounts within SharePoint without a problem." However while investigating it was brought to my attention that this step was actually not performed and it would therefore explain what is going on as you have said. Thanks Daniel!

    In theory if you do a Move-SPUser (technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff607729.aspx), it will point the new user to the old site. Two issues: 1) Not sure if this will work if the "NewAlias" is a user of the site with its own My Site and 2) The old My Site URL will persist and may not match the user's new credentials (DOMAIN or USERNAME could be different)

    I haven't tested it, but I think to get both your filter will look like: (&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=user)(|(userAccountControl:1.2.840.113556.‌​1.4.803:=2)(!userAccountControl:1.2.840.113556.1.4.803:=2)))

    comment What does Microsoft mean when they say “built-in type”?
    I'm not too familiar with Content Types from a development perspective, but the description you've quoted sounds the opposite of what you would expect. If inherits = false, then it shouldn't inherit properties. If it's true, then it should. I don't know for sure but I know what the dictionary says about the word inherit.

    You can't roll back updates, so it if really is an issue introduced by the CU (it's not listed on the KB) you'll have to wait.

    What is your goal -- are you moving the user's My Site? Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.PersonalSite gets the value, it can't change it. If you're moving the site, you can follow this procedure (or use it as a starting point): blogs.msdn.com/b/webtamer/archive/2008/03/28/…

    Gavin, I noticed the first error you pasted is a SQL Exception on the configuration DB, but in your edit the failure message is "Object Search_Service_Applic..." -- are there different errors happening with the backups?

    comment Moving large document libraries to new site collections
    My assumption is stsadm wraps SPExport. Obviously that doesn't mean SPExport can't handle SPLists, but I'm not seeing anything other than SPSites mentioned in the MSDN for either v3 or v4.

    This may be an issue caused by the October 2011 CU (I haven't confirmed this link so I'm not using it as an answer): sharepoint.nauplius.net/2011/11/…
