On the Manage User Solutions page (Figure 11.42), you can see that there is a section for
specifying blocked solutions (complete with a customizable message). Note that although you
upload the solution and specify its filename, the solution is blocked by contents, not by filename
alone. Therefore, if a solution has the same name but different content, it won’t be blocked. Also
notice the Load Balancing section. The first option, to run all the sandboxed solutions’ resources
on the server that made the request, works well, but it can compromise that particular server
if the solutions start to run amok or if there are too many running. The second option lets you
use SharePoint’s new Sandboxed Code service, which manages all the sandboxed solutions by
organizing which servers run the sandboxed code (considered solution affinity). More than one
server on the farm must have the sandboxed code service started for solution affinity to work.

The focus of this setting is to allow you to opt in or out of Microsoft’s Customer Experience
Improvement Program (CEIP), Error Reporting, and Online Help.
In the case of the CEIP, you can opt in on for the farm and then select to opt in or out per web
application. The Customer Experience Improvement Program collects data about your SharePoint
server and how you use it, ostensibly to help improve their product. No personal or private
information should be collected intentionally, and if they happen to accidentally get some, they
promise not to use it to identify or contact you or your users. Very comforting, I’m sure.
Microsoft’s Error Reporting settings are a little more complicated than just yes or no. Every
time SharePoint throws up an error, the error report can be sent to Microsoft. Again, any
