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 Need to upload 10gb in a doc library?
    I just realised, do you have a file that is 2-3 GB in size or multiple files that together have a size of 2-3 GB? If so, how large are the files in general?

    comment Can an InfoPath Form call a PowerShell script that makes use of the submitted form values?
    This is an interesting suggestion, as it introduces a workflow concept to the solution so it's clear whether the PS processing has run or not. This makes me think using a well known and supported 3rd party workflow tool may be better suited than building this myself.

    That's a good point, I didn't consider whether you could even call a PowerShell script from SharePoint...

    comment Sharepoint 2010 > Central Admin > Create special permission
    I see you've already selected an answer to your question, which to me sounds like you were looking for someone else to back you up in denying the request. Let's flip this on it's head: what information does Marketing need? Do they have suggestions or want to make changes to the search service configuration? You can delegate service administration to groups or users, so what you are trying to accomplish may be possible. I think if we better understand your goals you may receive a less general answer.

    comment Update-SPSolution does not Deploy Solution
    As much as I hate it, the deactivate, retract, delete, add, deploy, activate dance is effective. It reminds me though of those installers that would pop up with a message box "Product X is already installed! Uninstall Product X before upgrade to Product X.1!" We use Update-Solution whenever we're deploying a solution that has been updated (bug fixes, feature enhancements, etc)

    comment Merging 2 SharePoint Sites
    Where are you merging these sites to? My assumption is into the 2010 site (or another site in the 2010 farm) since you can't go the other way.

    comment My SharePoint 2007 backup keeps failing
    Are you specifying the backup path as "\serverName\SharePointBackups\ProdBk" (single slashe) or "\\serverName\SharePointBackups\ProdBk" (double slashes)

    While the screenshot contains the exception, you still need to review the actual log file for context.

    comment Sharepoint 2010 Server down after installing updates?
    Trevor's right, the error from the config wizard will help figure out the problem. Updates cannot be uninstalled either, which means your only rollback options are restoring a snapshot (if this is a VM) or rebuilding the farm and restoring from backups.

    comment SP 2010 - to BLOB or not to BLOB?
    Re: the 200 GB recommendation -- this is performance-related (and is a good recommendation). Given that this would be exceeded in 10 days, it's worth pointing out that provided you have the infrastructure to support it you can go over this if you want. Microsoft will support a content database of up to 4 terabytes.

    What sort of storage are you using? Can you afford to drop 20 GB of data into this storage each day? How many days before you fill up this storage? Also, will you be indexing the PDFs?

    comment how to set webapplication.RightsMask via PowerShell
    Not sure I'm clear -- by default a web application has the FullMask rights mask which allows all permissions to the web application. Are you trying to remove ViewListItems for all everything in the web application or do you have some other goal?
