Working with a customer yesterday, they were perplexed because they couldn’t figure out how to create HH named site collections in SP2010. They had done this routinely in SP2007. They were somewhat relieved when I told them that it is still possible to do but that they had to use PowerShell to do it and I gave them this link and we did it together. Yep, HH creation is not available in the GUI.

Just another reason to begin using PowerShell, there is a wealth of capability there.

I taught a SharePoint 2010 PowerShell course in 4 different cities earlier this year and many attendees were amazed at the flexibility and capability, beyond what is available in the GUI. Especially since many features, eg., multitenancy, can only be enabled via PowerShell.

So what are you waiting for…
