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 Authentication - multiple web domains
    Not sure SharePoint will do what you want here. Publishing the sites through a reverse proxy such as Forefront UAG, TMG, or ISA 2006/2004 will accomplish this.

    comment Limit users permission in their own my site
    I'm curious if you could explain why this requirement exists? The spirit of My Sites is that it is a personal place in the farm where a user has full control over their content. Based on your question, it sounds like it might make more sense to create a library in a site in one of your other site collections (i.e. outside of My Sites) where you can control the permissions.

    comment Sharepoint 2010, get the Distinct Values of a User Profile Property?
    Accessing the database isn't necessarily not allowed. It is unsupported to make changes to the database, and the tables are not documented because they can (and do) change at any time. The API is preferred for access as it is usually backwards compatible, so if you develop code that references it, it is less likely to break when an update comes out. There is nothing wrong with what you've done, provided you don't go around telling everyone that the only way to get a list of departments is "SELECT ..."

    +1 This sounds like it will probably work as it will copy all dependant content (ie the lookups)

    Will you please provide an estimate of the volume of content you are indexing (types of content/document types, number of files, total size, average item/document size)?

    comment STSADM: enumallwebs -includefeatures question
    The only documentation I can find is a passing reference about changes made in the Octobet 2009 CU: technet.microsoft.com/en-us/office/sharepointserver/bb735839. The enumallwebs operation page doesn't even list it as a parameter: technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd793606(v=office.12).aspx or technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd789634(v=office.12).aspx

    comment How to configure cloned MOSS 2007 environment?
    I would suggest you test it out. I have never personally restored between architectures so I'm not certain. You're not taking the original farm offline (my assumption is you're creating a second, new environment with all the same data) so there's nothing to loose except time.

    comment How to configure cloned MOSS 2007 environment?
    Again you select new. The restore isn't restoring like (for example) SQL Server does. Instead, it's really just recreating using the settings you provide and the data that was backed up. It's not very clear at all that this is what is happening so your confusion is normal. ;)

    New -- that's the magic that lets you specify the new values. If you pick same, it will attempt to restore to servers and databases that contain the original values which is not desirable in your case.
