Posted By:      Posted Date: September 07, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hi,   This is a fairly basic question but I wasn't able to find a specific answer. I would like to know the cost of Software Assurance for SharePoint 2010 - is it a % of the license cost? What Percentage please? OR Is it a fixed $ cost? Thanks, ~Trevor

General question steps to configure mysites in SharePoint 2010

I am trying to configure the mysite web application, so I have created a DNS record "mysite" and created a web application for the mysite and created a mysite host site collection on it. Now I have read somewhere that u have to create managed paths for the profile and the mysite, which actually corresponds with the name of the DNS record/mysite webapp. For some reason when i am opening the mysite, i get a url something like http://my/my. What am i doing wrong? Can somebody just give me a step by step approach on how to configure Mysites in MOSS 2010?I am a SharePoint Infrastructure Engineer, focussed on Administration and Installation of SharePoint Server environments.

Downgrading from Sharepoint 2010 Internet Enterprise to Standard (Purely a licensing rights question

RBS on SharePoint 2010 Question

Hopefully an easy question for you all.  In the technet documentation on setting up RBS for SharePoint 2010, I noticed it states that you can provision a BLOB store only one time.  Does that mean you can only use the RBS that you setup (eg, C:\Blobstore1) for the one Content database/web application associated with it and for each other web application I bring up, I need another blobstore?  Thanks in advance.

Sharepoint 2010 core.js question


I was reading articles (mainly targeting SP 2007) that talked about changing the master page so that core.js is only loaded on demand for sake of performance. And for external facing sites with Anonymous users, delayed/asynchronous loading was recommended.

So I decided to take this to heart and began creating a secondary master page for my SP 2010 site. However, when I looked at the code, the both the existing v4.master and dayandnight.master were already set to use RegisterSod for all the js files. So have things changed with SP 2010 where this optimization is no longer necessary? Please advise.

Thanks in advance,

SharePoint 2010 Backup Question


Hi Guys,

I have just configured my SP2010 backup and I want to make sure that I am not missing anything.  I was hoping I could list off steps and precautions I have taken and that you could lend me some of your expertise.

  • I have a MOSS server and a SQL2008 server.
  • Symantec Backup Exec backs up the content database every night.
  • I have created a script to backup the SharePoint config every night.  Saves it on my moss server in a backup directory.  (gets cleaned out every 7 days)
  • I have created a script to backup the //MOSS site every night into the same backup directory. (over writes itself every night)
  • This backup folder, is backed up nightly using Symantec Backup Exec as well.
  • I am also backing up the logs folder in the 14 hive (using Symantec)

Is there anything else I should be backing up???  Am I missing anything?

Thank you

Question about SharePoint Designer 2010 and Basic Authentication


I am trying to connect to an Office SharePoint Server 2010 on an external domain that is using Basic Authentication ... it won't prompt me for a username/password and doesn't do anything when I try to connect (even if I have a browser already logged in). If I switch it back to NTLM is opens fine and I can access the site.

Locally on our domain, if I try to access a server using Basic Authentication I get an error on the URL telling me 'The folder name is not valid'.

Any ideas on how to get around this would be greatly appreciated.



Sharepoint 2010 Foundation search question


I'm new to Sharepoint and have just setup 2010 Foundation.  I know that it's search will only index the contents of Office docs and that you can't install ifilters in Foundation.  However, I would think that all documents uploaded to a doc library should be searchable by file name, is that correct?  However, using pdf's has an example, in my testing, search results come up empty when searching for keywords in the filename.  In order to make these files searchable, I have to edit their properties and add a Title.

I know that not all users will bother to manually add a Title to all documents, so we need to be able to find files by their names, how is this possible?
