How to check the Storage space for a Sharepoint Subsite

Zoeb Shaikh's SharePoint Blog

To check the Size or the Storage space of a Subsite you will have to open the site Collection in Windows Explorer.

Look for the Subsite(Folder), Right click on that and select properties. It will show you the exact space of the Subsite. There is no way to check that from the Site settings page or from Central Admin.

Let me know if anyone has found other way to check the Size for Sharepoint Subsite.

What is Limited Access Anyway?

Limited Access
Enables users to access shared resources and a specific asset. Limited Access is designed to be combined with fine-grained permissions to enable users to access a specific list, document library, folder, list item, or document, without enabling them to access the whole site. Limited Access cannot be edited or deleted.

UPDATE 11/03/08: Be sure to read the excellent and detailed comment from Dessie Lunsford to this post.

I’ve been working on a secret tech editing project for an up-coming book and it references this blog entry by Tyler Butler on the MSDN ECM blog.  This is the first time I personally read a clear definition of the meaning of Limited Access.  Here’s the meat of the definition:

In SharePoint, anonymous users’ rights are determined by the Limited Access permission level. Limited Access is a special permission level that cannot be assigned to a user or group directly. The reason it exists is because if you have a library or subsite that has broken permissions inheritance, and you give a user/group access to only that library/subsite, in order to view its contents, the user/group must have some access to the root web. Otherwise the user/group will be unable to browse…

The new “Site Contents” layout

Ellen's Digital Workplace

Just when I had recovered from the (pleasant) shock of “the new document library experience” I found out that “Site Contents” has had a design overhaul.

I have not seen many blogs on this new feature yet so let me show you more.

What did the Site Contents page look like?

OldSiteContents The “old” look and feel of Site Contents

My concerns have been:

  • I personally do not like the grid layout with tiles, I can read a list better. Call me old-fashioned 🙂
  • Although the tiles occupy plenty of real estate, they do not provide as much info as they could, as I described earlier in “SharePoint tiles I’d like to see”.
  • I always forget if I have to click the tile (yes) or the … (no) to open up the list/library.

So, will my concerns be gone after the design change?

This is the new design

Microsoft Azure Architecture Blueprints & Free Visio Symbols

Build Azure


Microsoft distributes some really nice looking Azure architecture diagrams / blueprints (like the one on the right) in various materials and even includes them in keynotes, presentations and other places. These really seem like they must be created with Photoshop by a graphic designer. However, this is not the case.

These architecture diagrams are created using Visio! If you have Visio, you too can get your hands on the various assets necessary to create your own awesome architecture diagrams like these!

iLO “Remote Console is unavailable. It is already in use by a different client”

When you  try to access the iLO Remote Console on some servers you sometimes get the message “Remote Console is unavailable. It is already in use by a different client”. But there is no other client connected to the iLO on that server. How can you “reset” the Remote Console connection (from remote) to access the server through the iLO again?

Solve the problen by simply going to “Administration -> Settings -> Network -> Apply” (no changes to settings and just applying the current configuration)

It disconnects all connections, you may able to connect the remote console now.

Source: — this is a pretty good blog for WinTel system admins.

Another solution:

When using the integrated remote console on a HP Blade Server and you get disconnected for whatever reason you get the error message “The Integrated Remote Console is unavailable; it is already in use by a…
