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 ...

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, ...

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

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.

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

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 ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

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!

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 ...

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.

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 ...

I would say that you are misunderstanding the purpose of this VM. It is intended as a quick way to give a demo of Office and SharePoint 2010, and do some high level evaluation. It sounds like you are wanting to make a full-fledged development machine out of it. If that is the case I would say you are better off creating your own VM from scratch so that you ...

Here is the documentation for SharePoint 2010 logging. Basically, if you go into: Central Admin -> Monitoring -> Configure Diagnostic Logging The Trace Log section "Path" box will tell you where your logs are located. This screen will also allow you to increase the logging level if the default levels don't show you any useful messages.

Government contracts are a great way to sanity check this type of information, if you understand how the product is sold. According to the New York State Microsoft Select contract (see the "price list" link): SharePoint for Internet Sites Standard is $9,257 list and $7,389 for the state SharePoint for Internet Sites Enterprise is $32,490 list, and $25,936 ...

After posting this I realized you wanted to get the prereqinstaller to do the download for you. However if you download them once yourself you can simply store the 6 files in your own directory. just went thru this myself last week- I found this on the net somewhere and it worked: 1.) Place the downloaded files into a directory. For my example: C:\sp ...

Found it! Thanks to this blog I was able to delete the application - rather than dive in to the DBs as that article said I simply picked up the GUID that was displayed in the IE status bar whilst trying to delete the application in Central Admin.

UPDATE Everything is working. On a whim, I added my FARM account to the domain admin group for the provisioning process. Then I rebooted. Everything has started, the sync service in Central Admin AND the two FIM services. Now, that SHOULDN'T have been required. But, it worked. Anyway, things are working fine now. If you end up doing this, don't forget to ...

I believe Microsoft had you in mind when they created MOSS 2010. Check out the following script. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff645391.aspx

SharePoint runs on a machine with 2 GB RAM. It's not nice, it's not great, it's slow, but it runs. 4 GB is the absolute minimum I would recommend though. This is for Evaluation/Development. For Production use, by all means, go with the Sytem Requirements.

Our internal SharePoint 2010 server runs with 2 2.4GHz cores, 2GB of RAM (as of 2 minutes ago: 879MB free physical memory). We run SQL on a separate server which currently has the same specs (but 412MB free RAM). It's quick and plenty good enough for a dozen or so simultaneous users. If I was running a larger site I'd need to allocate more Processors/RAM; ...

Problem solved! Due to an issue with the crawler indexing sites with Basic Authentication and Anonymous authentication on Server 2008 R2 (see Mike Hacker's Blog). I've developed a workaround by extending the Extend the Web Application and create a second one at http://netbios:81 with NTLM authentication enabled. It turns out this was interfering with the ...
