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

    @TempaC SharePoint Foundation is the foundation to SharePoint Server, so yes it is included as an installed product.

    I suspect this won't work if the site in SP2013 is using the SP2010 look and feel (SPWeb.UIVersion will report 14 instead of 15), though in that case you would probably want it to activate since it will look as expected.

    comment AD RMS using with Sharepoint 2010 and Form Based Authtication
    Well, the issue is RMS is integrated with AD DS. You can also use Windows Live IDs, but if you are using a custom FBA provider that uses neither AD DS or WLID I don't believe there is going to be a way for RMS to authenticate user and authorize the RMS license.

    comment AD RMS using with Sharepoint 2010 and Form Based Authtication
    There's an older thread on the MS forums which seems to suggest that IRM/RMS and FBA aren't really the intended use case. Your clients would need to set a registry key to point to your RMS server and you would need to set up FBA to use an AD membership provider. social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/sharepointadmin/thread/…

    comment How do I change SQL connection from one server to another on an an External list
    An alias doesn't require a server name change, see habaneroconsulting.com/blog/posts/… You wouldn't be changing it for the farm, but that article explains the concept and it should work also for any other SQL Server connection

    Have you tried creating a SQL server client alias (cliconfg.exe) with the name of SQL Server A that points to SQL Server B?

    comment How many users can login on an extranet concurrently using the same username and password?
    Also for licensing it's easier to say "look, I have 3,000 users so I bought 3,000 CALs" vs. having to explain to Microsoft how you can be sure 3,000 people are using that one account.

    comment This powershell runs but why is it so slow
    For multiserver farms, this process can also take longer as the action needs to run to completion on all servers before you can continue to the next step.
