comment How to make web parts appear on multiple pages?
While it will put it on the page, I'm pretty sure web part properties would still be unique to the page.

comment COM or SOM for a Project
Yes it is possible to mix the two, you just need to be sure to reference both namespaces. I'm not sure there would be a benefit to using both the server object model and the client side object model for managed code, but I have mixed server object model with the client side javascript libraries where the main processing is done on the server, and then ajax powered updates done on the client side.

comment How does SharePoint store tasks?
Your workflow would need to perform the assignments. Typically for something like this I would use a Visual Studio workflow where I can add looping code versus a SharePoint Designer Workflow where you would actually have to configure the 50 assignments individually. You would then want to grab a list view of the task list for items related to that main record/workflow.

comment How does SharePoint store tasks?
SharePoint manages all of the relationships at the application level. If you were to open it up in something like sql management studio it would be very difficult to follow. This doesn't matter though since direct database access isn't supported.

comment Error deploying site definition through a script
I might suggest that you add the full path to the stsadm command as it is not likely resolving the location of the stsadm application. I think it is a bad idea to put site deletion/creation commands into the build events like this.

comment AAM with SearchCentre on it's own Web App
Typically MySites is not exposed to external users both for licensing reasons and for security reasons since you wouldn't want external users viewing details about internal users. When working with external users, typically I work to minimize the web applications for the external users. The zone should be handled automatically for search centers on those web apps.

comment AAM with SearchCentre on it's own Web App
What is the reasoning behind putting the search center on its own web app? There are no real benefits, and really only added complications especially for external users that will have to authenticate multiple times. Putting the search center in a site collection for the intranet/extranet web app should resolve your issues.

comment How to access document library files via a webservice?
It should also be noted that the Soap based web services are officially deprecated in SharePoint 2013 which means they have not added any new features and it is expected to go away in the next version. It would be best to use the the client OM or REST services going forward for all remote calls.

comment Workflow Timer Interval
If there isn't something erroring out that can be fixed, and its just a pure scaling issue, then I would look to add additional ram or CPUs to the farm and/or add another server to the farm that can also run the timerjob service.

comment Workflow Timer Interval
I would analyze the job history and see how long it takes to execute the job today. It sounds like it may already be running long, and perhaps skipping cycles.

I'm not sure I understand, can you say it a different way?

comment Getting user's manager in Sharepoint (Javascript)
Note, this would require having SharePoint Server with a User Profile Service Application.

comment why do my 2010 sharepoint sites not show up in Explorer?
@AprilD. I couldn't agree more, this aspect killed the usefulness of the feature.

comment why do my 2010 sharepoint sites not show up in Explorer?
To say it a different way, this has nothing to do with actual security or access to the content, its all about how the user's account is associated with a specific group on that site.

comment why do my 2010 sharepoint sites not show up in Explorer?
There is a single group identified for membership on a site; by default it is typically the site Members group. That is the group that counts, and you have to add individuals to that group. Being added as an individual to the Owner group doesn't trigger membership, nor does gaining membership to the Members group through membership of an AD Security Group.

comment Why is Central Admin on App server?
I agree with David on this. The CA aspect itself is strictly just an administrative interface, but the server it is installed on tends to be pretty important since it is the seed for your farm. Because of that, I also make it an app server. While SharePoint has evolved significantly over the past 12 years, and the deployments have gotten significantly more complex, this initial seed for the farm remains pretty important.

comment How to get data from a completed infopath forms
This would be possible in powershell, though not a fun activity. You need to connect to each file, stream the contents, and extract the entity data you want.

comment Services Actions Missing in Central Admin
@anil The service will need to successfully stay in a running state. Go ahead and try and start the service again. If it does not start, then remove the server from the farm, and rejoin it. You can do this by running the configuration wizard again on that particular server. Be sure you have the farm passphrase before attempting the changes.

comment Problem in Automatically log into Sharepoint
What authentication mode and provider are you using? Is the site configured for anonymous access?

comment Export documents from sharepoint to another website
To export the documents you would typically make a connection to the document and then open a bitstream that can then be saved somewhere else.
