Event ID 3 on running UPS service after installation of KB2281364 or KB2352342 in SharePoint 2010

You apply the hotfix package for SharePoint Server 2010 that is described in Microsoft Knowledge Base article 2281364 or 2352342. If the User Profile Synchronization service is run on the server, the following events are logged in the Application log:
Log Name: Application
Source: Forefront Identity Manager
Date: Date
Event ID: 3
Task Category: None
Level: Error
Keywords: Classic
User: N/A
Computer: Server
Description: Microsoft.ResourceManagement.Service: Microsoft.ResourceManagement.Workflow.Hosting.WorkflowManagerException: Forefront Identity Management Service does not support workflows of type 'Microsoft.ResourceManagement.Workflow.Activities.SequentialWorkflow, Microsoft.ResourceManagement, Version=4.0.2450.5, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35'.

Description: Microsoft.ResourceManagement.Workflow.Hosting.WorkflowManagerException: Forefront Identity Management Service does not support workflows of type 'Microsoft.ResourceManagement.Workflow.Activities.SequentialWorkflow, Microsoft.ResourceManagement, Version=4.0.2450.5, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35'.

This issue is caused because  of version mismatch of Microsoft.ResourceManagement.Service.exe and Microsoft.ResourceeMnagement.dll.

This error can be ignored safely till Microsoft releases a fix for it but if you want to keep your event logs clean then there is workaround which is recreating the user profiles after deleting them, which may lead data loss of existing user profile data. You can refer to KB2432041 for a more detailed explanation.

SQL Azure Error - 40544

If the size of your database reaches its MAXSIZE you will receive an error code 40544. You cannot insert or update data, or create new objects (such as tables, stored procedures, views, and functions).To fix this issue either increase your database size or delete data. For increasing/decreasing SQL Azure database size, you can use this command on the Master database. Alter DATABASE database_name MODIFY (MAXSIZE = {1|5|10|20|30… 150}GB); example: ALTER DATABASE sampleDB MODIFY (MAXSIZE = 5gb);

Hardware DEP (Data Execution Prevention), NX, XD & EVP

A processor can be instructed to designate regions of memory as non-executable. This means that the memory can be used to store reference data to be read and written, but that the processor cannot treat the contents of the memory as program code to be directly executed. Intel calls this capability in their newer processors XD for “eXecute Disable” and AMD refers to it as NX for “No eXecute.” AMD's marketing materials also sometimes refer to this capability by the term EVP for Enhanced Virus Protection.
As a hardware capability of modern processors this addition is important, but its use depends entirely upon support from the operating system. So when Microsoft introduced support for this into their operating systems, they termed it Hardware DEP for Data Execution Prevention. Support for hardware DEP was introduced into the 32-bit versions of Windows XP with Service Pack 2, into Windows 2003 Server with Service Pack 1, and has always been present in Windows Vista. Hardware DEP does …
