FC and 10GE use different bit encoding mechanisms, which dictates the maximum theoretical throughput for either. FC uses 8b/10b encoding while 10GE uses 64b/66b. What this means is that within the 8 Gbps for FC, 10 bits are sent for each byte of actual data. On the 8.5 Gbps (full underlying line rate of 8G FC) this comes out to 8.5 * 0.8 = 6.8 Gigabits ...

There is no seperate download available. It comes as a part of SharePoint 2010 install.

You shouldn't need to start those services manually - SharePoint will do everything itself when you start the User Profile Sync service in Central Administration as at that point it will configure a number of different things. It can take a good 10 minutes to actually start up as there's a number of timer jobs that need to complete. If it never starts up ...

Rename-SPServer needs to be run BEFORE the servername is changed. It seems that it is a good idea to use the stsadm -o renameserver command instead, even though Microsoft recommends using the powershell command. See the following article: http://aanikin.wordpress.com/2010/09/01/how-to-rename-sharepoint-2010-server/ I just used the stsadm command ...

The simple reason why we haven't replace traditional file storage with Sharepoint is that deploying a file server requires a basic server with no licenses (if you run a Windows server for storage then yes, you have to pay for licenses, but it's still fairly cheap) and just load it up with hard drives and put a layer of RAID over the top. With Sharepoint, ...

Doc library settings: Versioning settings - Require Content Approval = Yes Who should see draft items... Select 'Only users who can approve (and the author)' Default view - Created by = [Me] if you are not anonymous access enabled. Add staff members to the Approvers group Everyone else (students) is in the Contributors group. As an item is uploaded, by ...

This should get you started - you'll need to wrap the site creation part in a loop over your user list and possibly add some more error checking. I know for sure this works in 2007 but haven't tested it in 2010. All the same stuff exists so it should. One final thing - this is SLOW - creating 1 user on my SP2007 server takes 5-10 seconds. If your mysites ...

In the root of the document library select Actions -> "Open in Windows Explorer" and drag and drop or cut and paste as you normally would. Sorry, just saw this was 2010. It's under the Library tab. Open with Explorer.

You will want to do what is called a "database attach upgrade" of your 2007 data. The basic outline of what happens is that you: setup your SharePoint 2010 farm (make sure that all the settings are setup how you want them, and that you include all custom/3rd party solutions and web parts) backup your SharePoint 2007 database(s) restore your database(s) to ...

According to the SharePoint product team, the answer is no. http://blogs.msdn.com/sharepoint/archive/2010/01/22/operating-system-requirements-of-sharepoint-2010.aspx

Oddly enough, I resolved the issue with a simple restart. It had a clean reboot the day before after being patched so I was very skeptical that it would help, but it did. Here's the article with the explanation: Error communicating with Excel Services Application - Events 5231 5239 5240

You're throwing terms together that do not belong. The 8Gb HBA is only meant for talking to a storage device. You would either run fiber directly from the server into a storage controller, or into a fiberchannel switch which can distribute those connections. Your server would then use the onboard 1Gb or 10Gb ethernet ports for data connections only. The ...

Yes this is possible, and is not considered a bad path to be going down. This is a very typical situation for people who have a geographically dispersed workforce (use a local my site but a centralized main site) or who want to separate out the my sites for performance reasons such as yourself. The only questionable part to to me is why run the my sites on ...

No you don't need to install sharepoint on every box, just VS and the SDK. You should have a separate dev instance for them to connect to, but that should be a real server not a win7 desktop. So you should have 1 Server with sharepoint 2010 N Dev workstations that have VS2010 and the SDK installed.

This should solve it for you. It must be run as the sharepoint admin. In the past I have found that this doesn't work in every scenario and that occasionally the sharepoint dev team had to fix users manually. stsadm.exe -o migrateuser -oldlogin -newlogin [-ignoresidhistory]

If you don't have a database server, then you need to choose the SharePoint installation option for 'Standalone Server'. This will be more than acceptable to complete your project, and will install a SQLserver express edition on the SharePoint server you are using. Good luck!

Why did you install it? Sharepoint 2010 is a .NET 3.5 app and not supported for use with .NET 4.0 like Sharepoint 2013 is, same for Powershell 3.0. Regardless, you can fix this by running the shell in PS 2.0 mode. This helps if you are messing around with Sharepoint 2010 on a Windows 2012 server for instance. in Powershell: Powershell -version 2 ...

One quick thing to try is to run the SharePoint Management Shell "as Administrator" by right clicking on it in the Start menu, and select "Run as administrator". If that doesn't work, check your server and see if UAC is on, when I've run into that Machine admin rights error in the past I had to turn off UAC to get past it. Run as Admin may mitigate it as ...

Are you running any maintenance jobs that could be doing any reindexing or other heavy work? Even with simple recovery, the log will need to be at least large enough to hold the largest transaction issued against the database. Try running DBCC SQLPERF(LOGSPACE) and check how much of the log file is actually in use. If it's very low, then simple recovery is ...

Deleted workflows will appear in the SharePoint recycle bin. You can restore them out of here. Do that and the workflow will show up in SharePoint Designer again. Unfortunately restoring will not re-associate the workflow with the list again so it won't actually do anything useful. It will however let you view it in SharePoint Designer and create a new ...

You can consider using the incoming e-mail feature - you can configure a document library in a way that will allow students to 'upload' documents by e-mailing them to an appropriate address (e.g. handin@your-school.edu), even though they have no access to this library. Plan incoming e-mail (SharePoint Server 2010) Configure incoming e-mail (SharePoint ...

Two things: Is your web server listening on 127.0.0.2 as well? 0.0.0.0 should be fine, though you're likely generating some short-lived network traffic with it.

You can use RBS (Remote Blob Storage) for such files so that you do not overload your SQL DB. This would allow you to use lower cost storage for the large scanned docs/attchments and improve SQL performance. MS has a number of documents on using RBS This MS article will assist you. Manage RBS

This is possible. That was our process for a recent upgrade to 2010 Be sure to run all pre-upgarde checks and correct any issues before the upgrade. Pay close attention to any added solutions on the 2007 farm.

It takes about 15 minutes to install. Now, I assume you're asking about post-install configuration. That can take weeks depending on the requirements, which you have not mentioned.

If you can get to the management shell enter into the powershell prompt: $passphrase = ConvertTo-SecureString -asPlainText -Force This will reset the passphrase. You should note that it is not possible to retrieve a passphrase.

It doesn't directly answer your question, but it's probably not such a good idea to install trialware as a production application. You would be best of setting up SP10 on a demo server and using a copy of the production DB...

I just performed a downgrade for a client. Data migrated just fine, but a lot of the internal plumbing is broken, e.g. list/content type gallery. Of course all pages that use features not available in Foundation do not work, e.g. publishing.

FAST is a separate product, and quite a heavyweight one too. It needs to be downloaded, installed and configured separately before you even think about the Sharepoint 2010 features - all you're enabling there is a service app and site collection that act as "place-holders", for want of a better word, inside sharepoint that FAST plugs into. As for ...

Ended up rebuilding the farm, after a clean install verything worked. One-way domain trusts need a lot of pre work is all i can say...
