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.

comment Maintaining role groups and users in two farms simultaneously?
OK, I understand there is a separation of duties, but can the SharePoint administrators provide the AD administrators with a list of groups and users to set up in AD? To be fair, you would require this with nested groups as well (unless the groups already exist)
