  • 3. 2 Office SharePoint Server 2007 Functional and Architectural Overview Computers This lab uses three virtual machines performing the following roles: 3370A-3374A-SEA-DC1 • Domain controller • Exchange server 3370A-3374A-SEA-SRV1 • Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 Web front-end and application server • Database server 3370A-3374A-SEA-CL1 • 2007 Microsoft Office system client Estimated time to complete this lab: 90 minutes Virtual Lab Console This lab makes use of the Microsoft Virtual Lab Program, an application that allows you to run multiple virtual machines online. During the lab, you will switch between different windows, each containing a separate virtual machine running Microsoft Windows Server™ 2003 or Microsoft Windows® XP. Before you start the lab, familiarize yourself with the following basics of the Virtual Lab Console: To switch the focus for your mouse and keyboard to the virtual machine, click inside the virtual machine window. To remove the focus from a virtual machine, move the mouse pointer outside the virtual machine window. To issue the CTRL+ALT+DELETE keyboard combination inside a virtual machine, use RIGHT-ALT+DELETE instead. Virtual PC designates the RIGHT-ALT key as the Host key. Select the machine you wish to perform tasks on by selecting it in “My Machines” To Start the Lab Before you can perform any of the lab exercises, you must log on to the computer. If an error message warns you that the disk’s parent appears to have been modified, click OK to continue. This error message appears when you move Virtual PC images between computers with different time- zone settings. Note These demonstrations have been developed using beta software. If a specific task results in an error message or a time-out screen, try performing the task again. The task will most likely be completed successfully at the second attempt.
