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 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

    comment Deleting a Site
    I see you've already accepted an answer, but just to clarify is /My a site within thesite site collection, or is /My a managed path to the My Site host site collection?

    Either way I'm following up with partner support to get an answer about this, as now I have several client farms that aren't configured as expected. :S

    comment PowerShell - Create Search Service App Pools (All 3)
    I see that the New-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication takes two application pool parameters (ApplicationPool and AdminApplicationPool), though the documentation (technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff607751.aspx) is so poor I honestly have no idea what ApplicationPool is for.

    comment PowerShell - Create Search Service App Pools (All 3)
    ... Holy cow, thank you. I have been using that line in my scripts for over a year now and I have never noticed that the query application pool isn't used. I can't find any reference to it outside of the page created in Central Administration. The closest documentation that attempts to explain it is here: blogs.msdn.com/b/sharepoint_strategery/archive/2012/06/29/…, but I still can't figure out how to associate it with the query web service.

    comment How to find a document in a document library using jquery
    You'll need to fix the formatting of your answer as right now it looks like this returns the number of documents in a library because you're missing a some spaces in the markdown. (When I edit the post I see you're performing a query based on a supplied file name, and I can't save my edit of four spaces).

    Unique in what way? Filename? Contents (I suppose creating a hash and comparing it to the hash of files in the library)?

    comment Using web services to create a meeting; need to generate a uid
    Right, though when you compare the GUIDs generated on the first page with the type 1 GUIDs on the second page, (at least for me) they are very similar. Site 1: E6DE9E60-B71E-11E1-BD36-C20D6288709B, site 2: f00a3c10-b71e-11e1-afa6-0800200c9a66. Note the B71E-11E1 parts that are in common.

    comment Using web services to create a meeting; need to generate a uid
    The generated GUIDs on that page look to be of type 1, i.e. they are based on the time and system they are run on. There is a link at the bottom to another online generator that allows you to generate type 4 (random) GUIDs.

    comment SharePoint 2007 and Large Excel files
    Are there any errors? What type of connection is between the user and SharePoint? In other words, how long does it take to upload the file? In addition to the maximum upload size, there is an IIS Timeout that needs to be large enough to accomodate the upload. By default it is 120 seconds, so if the upload takes longer than 2 minutes I would suggest increasing the timeout. See microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/WindowsServer2003/Library/IIS/…

    comment TIFF IRM Protector
    I think the issue you will find is that for IRM to work, the filetype needs to be IRM-aware. The custom IRM protector documentation you'll find is to apply IRM to filetypes that you have created. If I have a picture viewer that is not IRM aware (pictview.com), will it still be able to open the TIFF? Will the TIFF still be a properly formatted TIFF?
