In keeping their word, AT&T is making up for some foul-ups last year on my account when we moved. They are now announcing the roll out of 300 mbps internet in west Fort Worth via their Gigapower internet service. Excited to see the results!

If you’re ever in need of converting your existing web applications within SharePoint to claims authentication from classic auth, you’ll need to run the following commands.
In order to do this, you’ll need to use the SharePoint PowerShell command prompt and run the commands in the order below under your farm service account:
Need to give a service account access to a web application in SharePoint 2013? Easy! Just run these two PowerShell commands as the farm service account in the SharePoint PowerShell command prompt:
$webApp = Get-SPWebApplication http://contoso.com $webApp.GrantAccessToProcessIdentity("CONTOSO\svcacct-contoso")
In SharePoint 2010, if you had other domains that you needed to lookup users on in order to give them access to a site, it just worked without having to do any further configuration.
Not so with SharePoint 2013. You must add each domain and sub-domain to each web application to be able to perform user lookups from within the people picker.
So how do you do this? Well, with PowerShell, and fortunately Microsoft has provided a nice script that performs it for you. Otherwise, it would be quite a task.
It’s important to note that you must add the default domain your SharePoint environment is currently setup in. Otherwise, you won’t even be able to do lookups in it! (Found that out the hard way)
Instructions: Open Notepad or your favorite text editor, copy and paste the code below into the file, and save it as a .ps1 file. Open the SharePoint PowerShell command window as an Administrator, and an account with farm level access, change the directory (cd C:\YourDirectory, etc.) to the place you saved the code below (as a .ps1 file), type out .\YourPowerShellScript.ps1 and hit enter.
*I provide this as is, with no guarantees it will resolve your issues. And if you muck up your environment, it’s not my fault. 🙂 Obviously you should perform this on a dev or test environment first before attempting it in production. Good luck!*
And seek the peace of the city whither I have caused you to be carried away captives, and pay unto the Lord for it: for in the peace thereof shall ye have peace. (Jeremiah 29:7)
The principle involved in this text would suggest to all of us who are the Lord’s strangers and foreigners that we should be desirous to promote the peace and prosperity of the people among whom we dwell. Specially should our nation and our city be blest by our constant intercession. An earnest prayer for your country and other countries is well becoming in the mouth of every believer. Eagerly let us pray for the great boon of peace, both at home and abroad. If strife should cause bloodshed in out streets, or if foreign battle should slay our brave soldiers, we should all bewail the calamity; let us therefore pray for peace and diligently promote those principles by which the classes at home and the races abroad may be bound together in bonds of amity.

A. Read Philippians 4:4-7
B. ILLUS. Chaplaincy. Summer 2002. I was assigned to the reception station at Ft. Sill, Oklahoma. I was counseling teenagers just about to step into Basic Training. The ones who stopped by my office were stressed and anxious about girlfriends they left behind, mean drill sergeants, the radical culture change, etc. and I did my best to soothe their worries and give them hope. One afternoon, halfway through my assignment, the Deputy Assistant Installation Chaplain and my Brigade Chaplain (my boss) entered my office. They told me that the Red Cross just informed them that my dad had had a massive coronary and was being care-flighted to a hospital 100 miles away and that my mom was in a car trailing them. I was to be released immediately to fly home and take care of family business. The counselor had now become the counselee.
My Aunt Christina recently posted a couple of pictures of her and my mom in 1956 during one of their big snowstorms in Dallas. Always fun seeing new pictures from their past.
Since I had to piece together how to accomplish the migration of a host-named site collection (HNSC) I had already setup in SharePoint 2013, from one farm to another, I figured I would outline exactly how to do it. In my case, I needed the HNSC to be in its own content database, I’m targeting a particular web app with the HNSC as opposed to using a wildcard web app to handle the hostnames, and all of this is assuming you have your rights setup to be able to carry out all of this; SQL, SharePoint farm account and otherwise. With that said…
