Intentional Thinking Enrique Lima PowerShell
Configuration of Hyper-V and creation of VMs
In continuing with the post that I started last week, this week I focus on how I used PowerShell to install Hyper-V on Windows 8 and then create all necessary items to continue the creation of the SharePoint lab running on Hyper-V on Windows 8. First thing, in all situations I started PowerShell as Administrator. And yes, many of this items can be done and worked on through the GUI. But, the point is how do I automate. Also, assumptions here are you have a licensed version of Windows 8, and your ......

Nice to have tools for the SharePoint IT Pro
Coming from SPC a couple of weeks ago, during the keynote there was a demo on some great Visio Diagrams. It was created using the following: http://visiospfarmaddin.cod... Expect a post here in the next week or so on how to configure it. Another great tool I came across is targeted to those who are becoming familiar with PowerShell for SharePoint, and also if you want to use PowerShell with SharePoint Online. It is a Command Builder, you pick the verbs and nouns as you would regularly do with ......

It has been some time now since Windows Server 2008 R2 arrived, but the features and capabilities in many cases are just now starting to surface with company’s implementing or looking at using.

PowerShell for breakfast, lunch and dinner
Actually, for snacks too, and it is nearly everywhere I turn. If I do Microsoft Exchange work, I know I will run into it. Active Directory, SQL Server, TFS, SharePoint, Azure and most recently Lync. All have provided a way to work with PowerShell and it has taken off (as it should). The question many will have is, How do I get started? A couple of ways are available. There are books, sites and blogs that will help you along the way. This will be the start of a series of posts that, my intention at ......

Creating a SharePoint Demo/Dev Lab using Hyper-V on Windows 8. The Overview.
In the last number of days, I have come across the release of the Microsoft Office Division Demo VMs. While a great asset, it is also quite large and it consumes a lot of resources, this being said as I have a Lenovo W530 with 32GB RAM, and 3 Hard Drives. The download is a 56GB set, then expanded it comes to 220GB. That is just the storage piece. Then in order to get all VMs running, it requires 42GB RAM … not quite what I wanted in the end, but still useful in a given situation. That brought me ......

Going from “domain\username” to Display name in SharePoint
While at a client location this week I ran into the situation of their SharePoint deployment recognizing a handful of people by their Display Name and others (a lot more) by their “domain\username” account. And since they had User Profile in place they felt something was just not right, and if you combine that and the fact most of the information available around that issue tells you it is a profile issue, you can understand the frustration of going back to the sync process and correcting in AD, ......
