Useful SharePoint Stuff

I’ve moved this article from being a blog post to being a permanent page on the site as it will continually be added to, as I find stuff which I don’t want to forget and which may be of some use to you.

User Profile Configuration http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee721049.aspx

Excel Services Kerberos http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2466519

How to check to see if Kerberos is enabled for SQL Server:

SELECT auth_scheme FROM sys.dm_exec_connections WHERE session_id=@@spid

[updated 23 Jul 2011] Migrating users between SQL Servers http://support.microsoft.com/kb/918992/

What’s the Difference between the Session State Service and the State Service Application?

“The State Service is used by InfoPath Forms Services (IPFS), the Chart Web Part, and when the user is not running Silverlight Visio Services will use this too. The ASP.Net session state is used within aspx pages, controls, Web Parts, etc to store user/session scoped state such as when you make a call to Page.Session.Add(“Key”, new object()); “

For full details, please goto this great blog post from Todd Bleeker it really helped me :  http://todd-carter.com/post/2010/04/30/A-Session-State-By-Any-Other-Name.aspx.
