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.

comment SP 2010 - to BLOB or not to BLOB?
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?

comment How to determine SharePoint version used during backup creation in order to restore it?
If you can access the farm where the backup came from, you can look up the version. If not, I don't believe there is a (documented) way to extract the version from the site collection backup file itself

comment Cannot add user to SP group, SP 2010
Are you saying the issue started after migrating the site from a 2007 farm to your 2010 farm using DocAve? Have you contacted AvePoint about this issue?

comment Quickest way to backup and restore a web application content database across farms?
How big is the site collection backup you are creating with Backup-SPSite? My guess is about 5-6 GB. You can't speed this up unless you invest in faster hardware. I have the same question that Dave does -- why are you regularly deploying content using a site collection backup and restore?

comment Which domain should I create my Service accounts in when deploying an Extranet on a Sharepoint WFE in the DMZ?
If the trust is two-way, it doesn't technically matter as a service account in either domain can be authenticated and authorized on machines in both domains. So the question to you is, Where do you want them to live?

comment Which domain should I create my Service accounts in when deploying an Extranet on a Sharepoint WFE in the DMZ?
What is the farm topology (where do the servers physically reside)? What sort of domain trust is there? Where is the SQL Server?

comment incoming mail just sits in the drop folder
How many servers running SharePoint are in your farm? If more than one server, which server is running the IIS SMTP service?

comment Changing permissions on a document library to read-only and back again
You would need to store the current permissions if you wanted to revert back on deactivation. This may be complicated if the users no longer exist, have changed, etc. You could always set it back to inherit.

comment Can servers in a SharePoint farm be members of different domains?
It does appear to work. I was able to join the WFE servers in DOMAINA to the farm that was created on one of the application servers in DOMAINB.

comment Can servers in a SharePoint farm be members of different domains?
That post describes a back-to-back perimeter topology, where the SharePoint servers are all in the same domain and users may not be. This is well documented, however what I'm describing is a case where the servers themselves are in different domains. I am in the process of trying it out.
