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 Missing SharePoint Server Publishing Feature on a Sharepoint 2010 Enterprise edition site collection
    Have you tried PowerShell? Enable-SPFeature -Identity "PublishingSite" -Url "webapp/sitecollection"; for the site collection feature and then Enable-SPFeature -Identity "PublishingWeb" -Url "webapp/sitecollection"; for the site feature (assuming you want publishing in the root of your site collection)?

    Yes, that would work as well and I do quite like your approach.

    comment IIS Log files are not getting generated for the “SharePoint Web Services” webapplication in SharePoint - 2010?
    This is not expected behaviour, logs should exist for a web application's IIS web site and are a critical troubleshooting tool.

    Hi Andrzej, are you saying you can now remove the content type after removing files from the recycle bin?

    comment I can't remove Content Type programmatically? How I can do it? SharePoint Foundation
    Without getting too far into a discussion outside of the scope of this question, my comments are directed more to the spirit of this site. I'm not saying you didn't cite a source, I'm saying your answer will no longer be valid if the source site disappears one day and users can no longer click the links!

    comment I can't remove Content Type programmatically? How I can do it? SharePoint Foundation
    You should post a summary or quote of those references. Basically the first link says there is a item or library that is still using the content type and you must locate this and delete or change the content type. This is 100% a manual process. The second link basically says items in the recycle bin count and to make sure and check there if you've already checked everywhere else.

    comment How to find who put the sharepoint site collection in READ only mode in Sharepoint 2010
    Another to add to your list: a site collection will be locked when a site collection backup runs. There used to be an issue in MOSS where sometimes it would not get unlocked after the backup (say for example the backup failed). It was common to force an unlock after running a site collection backup.

    comment SP2010 - Which best solution for “crawling” plenty of site within 5 minutes by a timer job?
    If I understand you correctly, to me it sounds like saying "crawling" in the title is misleading -- this has nothing to do with search, correct? You're asking how best to create a timer job to check the tasks every 5 minutes and act appropriately.

    comment NTLM Authenticated Application, FBA, and the People Picker
    Was there a question? I'm guessing you want to know how to enable FBA, not be prompted for authentication method (trying NTLM first), and have the PeoplePicker work for FBA users?

    comment Restore-SPSite to the same content database
    Don't apologise, resurrecting old posts with new information is part of the point! I'm not clear, though it sounds like the steps in that post show how to remove a deleted site permanently so Restore-SPSite of the site will work again. Is this the case?

    comment Deleting a Site
    If we're assuming "/my (mysite)" is a site collection (using an explicit managed path of /my), there is no need to back it up as it is an independent site collection from the root site collection. Alternatively, if we assume /my is a site within the site collection, stsadm -o backup will not work; the export operation is needed
