Tweet Prior to the release of Exchange Server 2007, Microsoft announced that the future of public folders was in question, and that SharePoint libraries would take their place.

Posted by on Mar 16, 2010 in SharePoint, SharePoint 2007, Virtualisation, VMware

Tweet I came across an obscure situation earlier this year with a new SharePoint farm that I had just designed and built.  It was a fairly straight forward setup comprising of a dedicated SQL 2008 server, 2 x Web Front Ends utilising Windows NLB and 1 x Central Administration server all running Windows 2008 Enterprise R2 in a virtual environment utilising VMware ESX. So after building the SharePoint farm, restoring the Content Databases and Shared Services Provider I thought to myself everything is actually going to plan for once, until…… I restarted one of the web front ends!
