comment Hotfix installation on SharePoint 2010 farm?
To clarify 3 (and then 4): You can install the package in parallel. When you get to the config wizard portion, you can run this in parallel as well. With SP2010 the first server will lock the configuration database and the other servers will take turns to complete.

comment Pricing an upgrade from 2007 to 2010 for a customer?
Guh, more things to consider. Do you have dev/test/qa/staging environments? Will these be upgraded as well? At this point, let me repeat what a Wise man once said: There are way too many variables to be able to provide an answer to your estimate question but hopefully the questions above will help get you started on understanding what all is involved.

Dammit. More thoughts. Are we upgrading/buying new hardware? And how about software licenses? SharePoint server is one thing, but are we also going from Windows Server 2003 to 2008? And SQL Server? How many users in the farm? If you currently have a per-processor license and your new server(s) have more processors, then you'll need additional licenses.

comment Pricing an upgrade from 2007 to 2010 for a customer?
Well, now there I go thinking about things. OP wants to know pricing information. You'll need to look at how many people will be involved, what are their roles, what are their rates, etc. Is this a fixed-fee or time and materials engagement?

This list is pretty comprehensive, I would only add the suggestion of running stsadm -o preupgradecheck to get a feel of the pain you're in for

comment Opening AutoCAD DWG Files from SharePoint 2010
I'm trying to understand the SPS2003 connection. Did DWG files in your SPS2003 farm open in the correct client program? Also, what CAD applications are installed on the XP machines?

comment User Profile Application service was inaccessible - ProfilePropertyService.svc has exceeded the allotted timeout
While I appreciate your desire to determine the root cause, I have a suspicion this issue will be hard to reproduce, it may have been a freak coincidence. I would suggest monitoring the farm for this to happen again, the good news is that you have a resolution for when it does.

comment STSADM: Scripting activaton/deactivation of web app level features
My assumption about what you're asking is that the web application feature is inactive and after running the activatefeature operation it is still inactive. Is this correct?

comment Fast Search Server 2010 Crawl
Technically, though you are not likely to experience a difference. Think of the crawler like a user who is just quickly viewing every page you have in your farm. This user waits for the page (and all linked inline content like images) to load completely and then "clicks" a link on the page, repeating the process. This "user" isn't even uploading documents or editing items so they're not really causing a heavy load. The real load is on your crawl server as it is building the index as it crawls the content. If your crawler is your WFE then maybe that could be an issue in the future.

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 ..."
