In the last week I’ve been asked for this information a few times, so I decided to go ahead and blog it. I’ve been hesitant to put out an official blog post on this, because I don’t think it’s ready for prime time. But, it keeps coming up, so here it is, the steps I follow when I install SharePoint 2010.

Despite laying the groundwork for social computing in SharePoint 2010, Microsoft has pretty much left social to such third-party vendors as NewsGator and harmon.ie and others to figure out how to make SharePoint more friendly to end users in this Facebook-influenced world. But a recent flurry of interviews by Jared Spataro, Microsoft’s Senior Director, SharePoint Product Management, touching on SharePoint and social computing, leaves industry watchers trying to connect the dots.
In a previous post I shared some thoughts regarding changes to authentication providers in SharePoint 2010. As I worked through the issue of removing Claims/FBA and reverting to NTLM I discovered a number of issues that manifested themselves in strange ways. The first problem I encountered was the inability for a Farm account to make changes to the Authentication Providers settings in Central Administration. The System Account couldn’t even view the dialog – each attempt resulted in a 403 error. This was bad news as a lot of things happen behind the scenes when changing authentication settings in this dialog – not the least of which is propagation of changes to all the web servers. This meant I would have to undo all of the Claims settings manually and repeat them on each server. Not my idea of a fun afternoon.
Last Friday I got the fantastic message that I had successfully passed the Microsoft Certified Architect – SharePoint 2010 (MCA) certification, something I’m really proud of – but something most of the community never ever heard of. During this weekend I’ve been pinged and messaged by a lots of people asking the question “What is a Microsoft Certified Architect?”. In this post I intend to answer it as thorough as possible, including my own personal aspects of it.
In SharePoint 2010, providing users have sufficient permissions, they can add various web parts available on the site. In larger organizations, various users have different skill levels and although some categories of users might be allowed to edit the page – you might want to restrict who can add which web parts to the page.
