  • Typical
  • Walkthrough examplesWe sometime work closely w business, sometimes ITSometimes IT has dedicated SP resourcingSample – Midwestern manufacturer – sponsor is a program manager (electronics) – core team includes C# developers for their product team, some knowledge of SQL, no other time
  • Let’s break down investments by workloads…SitesCommunitiesContentSearchInsightsComposites
  • These are the domain accounts that are generally needed in a standard SharePoint installation. These accounts are shown with suggested names; names can be adjusted to confirm to any corporate naming standard for service accounts. For example, you may wish to designate ALL service accounts with a sv- or svc- prefix. Similarly, you may want to designate “regions” with a suffix, such as –dev, -tst, or –prd. Likewise, if you have already established SQL service account conventions, those accounts are fine as well.
  • Keep?
  •  No SQL maintenance plansAll gardens need weeding. SQL databases need tending too. Left on their own, content databases and config databases will generate runaway transaction logs. Combined with overzealous local backup retention plans and you’ll quickly fill up you storage. Take a little time to understand Full Recovery vs. Simple Recovery in SQL. Or, more importantly, use a maintenance plan to backup and truncate your logs – it’s not that hard.Default names for every databaseThe default database name for a SharePoint content database is “WSS_Content”, and if you take the defaults, all subsequent databases will take the default format WSS_Content_[really-long-GUID]. Don’t do this – down the road, during backup, restore or SQL maintenance operations you&apos;ll be constantly jumping into Central Admin to figure out which sites use “WSS_Content_abdc1234-1111-2222-878adf0e”. Much better to name the databases according to a person- friendly standard – “WSS-Content-HRPortal”, etc. Even if it’s obvious to you, it may not be obvious to your DBA or someone else who has to support it in the future. No patchingGiven my crazed obsession with SharePoint version numbers (see this is not a stretch. Microsoft has made it as easy as possible to stay in sync with the latest patches, Service Packs and Cumulative Updates. Do you need to update your systems every two months? Probably not. Should you still be running the nearly four year old RTM version of SharePoint 2007? Definitely not.One environment for everythingDon’t build a development environment. Don’t build a test environment. Just make all changes live, in production. What could ever go wrong?One acct for everythingBig, big no-no here. If you don’t pay attention, you may be tempted to use one master account for the SQL service, for the installation, for the farm account, for search, for content access, and for the IIS pools. Then, when you administer the site, it’s always easy to work around security restrictions by handing out those account credentials to a wide group of people. Next thing you know, someone forgets the password and locks out the account. The great news is that you don’t need to build a monitoring system for this alert, because everyone and I mean everyone, will get the dreaded web page that reads:Cannot connect to configuration database.So don’t give out the admin accounts, and, especially, don’t reuse the farm account.Single server install with SQL ExpressIf you don’t pay close attention on the original installation sequence, you may pick a “standalone” single server installation. You’re starting with only one server for now, right? Unfortunately, you’ll wind up with a server that can’t be expanded, running SQL Express Edition. And limited to 4GB of content database size. Well, at least you’ll avoid the next problem:Runaway content database sizeMicrosoft recommends that SharePoint content databases stay below 100GB (200GB if it’s the only content DB in a SharePoint 2010 site collection). But SharePoint doesn’t stop you from adding more – it’s a recommendation for optimal user performance. However, I’ve seen too many installations that grew grew grew to 250GB, 500GB or more. Plan your content database sizes in advance of critical sizes. You can add databases and site collections to create more manageable units, or use Remote Blob Storage (RBS) to pull those file of attachments out of the databases and into external storage, reducing file sizes.

    113. 113. SharePoint Family Platforms<br />
    114. 114. SharePoint 2010 is a 64 bit only platform. Direct upgrades from 32 bit to 64 bit requires prep work. <br />Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2 X64<br />SQL Server 2005 x64 SP3 CU3 <br /> Or<br />SQL Server 2008 x64 SP1 CU2<br /> Or<br />SQL Server 2008 R2<br />Platform Basics<br />
    115. 115. 2007 Shared Services Provider has been broken up; each of its elements is now a Shared Service Application<br />Mix and match them singly or in groups, to match farm’s needs. <br />Crawl/index no longer a single server role<br />In 2010, administration can be delegated<br />Key targets: Enterprise search, metadata, user profiles<br />Shared Service Applications<br />
    116. 116.

    117. 117. SharePoint 2010 provides a server version of Office applications – Office Web Access, or “OWA”. <br />In part, this enables simultaneous multiuser editing of Office documents:<br />Excel in OWA, not client<br />Word/PowerPoint on client only if file opened from a shared document library<br />OneNote client or OWA<br />Office Web Applications<br />
