MOSS 2007 – Setting up a Search Center as a subsite to a Team Site-based Site Collection

Global Navigation changed after enabling Publishing Infrastructure
So before I enabled the Publishing Infrastructure feature, the top nav bar tabs showed the leftmost tab reading “Home”. After enabling it and later disabling it, the leftmost tab read as the site title (as set in the site settings). Great but all my functional tests are written to search for the tab reading “Home”.

Oversetting Upload Size Limits in Windows SharePoint Services 2003 – BAD
We set our upload size limit to 40,000 megabytes on our Virtual Server settings. … This was very bad. Apparently if the setting is set too high, it’s essentially interpreted to be zero by the application. …
PortableApps, lag and my new Cruzer USB device
A couple of days ago, I had occasion to upgrade my older Cruzer USB 2 GB thumbdrive to a new 4 GB thumbdrive of the same brand.

It’s all built-in, but it […]
Kerberos SSPI/PAC errors and NetLogon errors 5719 and 5783 and Login Failure Audits – Oh my!
We appear to be having a bunch of Kerberos errors in our SQL clusters that represent 2-30 minutes of downtime at a stretch.
