Instant SharePoint Health Analysis

with 2 comments

The SharePoint 2010 Health Analyzer provides a great way of identifying installation problems but it can take days or weeks before a full set of results appear. When installing a new environment it can be helpful to get instant feedback on any health issues so they can be resolved before users start using the environment. This post shows you how to run all the health analysis rules instantly using PowerShell so you get an instant health check.

SharePoint 2010 Web Parts by License Type

with 13 comments

The official SharePoint site contains a comparison of the features in each SharePoint 2010 edition but does not include specific details on what web parts are available for each SKU/license type. This is useful to know when choosing between Foundation vs Standard vs Enterprise, as this additional functionality may be a good reason to upgrade (or turn on these features for specific users). It is also useful to know these as a developer or solution architect so you don’t custom develop something that has already been built and tested by Microsoft – something that I often see happen.
