comment SharePoint 2007 -> 2010 upgrade content database size currently over 100GB
Thanks for the reply Bas, as it stands the current DB server has run out of space so trying to remove sites / document librarys will no doubt blow the log files out and I'll run out of space. My thoughts are to detach / attach the current 165GB DB then bring it down. Due to the solutions installed on the farm my only option is to do an inplace upgrade which I have a process for and have done on 20 other SharePoint 2007 farms so I know a trick or 2 about how to get that to work.

comment Splitting a Content Database into two or three?
I guess this works provided you have your content split up into manageable site collections but if you've got a really large site collection then you're pretty much out of luck?

comment Editing default master Broke Central Admin
you wouldn't by any chance have the publishing feature enabled and be able to restore an earlier version? Also you mention you're working on a 2010 install, I would have thought that you would have been working with v4.master

comment Additional WFE 401 errors?
Thanks - turns out it was some inconsistencies between the web.config file and was missing Ajax dlls on the new WFE, after doing a compare in Notepad++ I was able to identify the lines. What I noticed, and should have tried hours earlier was to navigate to another page not the home page which threw me an actual readable error. usually the web part maintenance page is a good one but it was indeed custom code related. I do migrations as part of my role quite frequently but haven't encountered an instance like this before usually I have SharePoint thrown an error page and tell me what its missing

comment Many SSL sites on a single SP farm?
I'm not sure thats right Trevor, I by mistake one day loaded 2 SSL certs to different sites (a mysite and a sharepoint web app) and we got all kinds of weird problems. Basically the site would not load until we unbound them.

comment Duplicate SPNs for SharePoint hostname
Thanks for the clarification. I will set the answer, basically the customer has some deeper issues with DNS and AD replication within their organisation therefore the changes being made to the spn is seemingly not taking effect as it should.

comment Duplicate SPNs for SharePoint hostname
This problem is possibly related to some replication not happening properly in the customers domain. I will update the question if that is indeed the root cause of the problem.

comment Excel Web App error everyday after recreation
Whats the current build level for SharePoint? If you can go to a hotfix it might be worth it. August 2011 CU has been well tested.
