Today is my first day of the 5 days SharePoint training (10174 Configuring and Administering Microsoft SharePoint 2010). I think it might be a good idea to keep my notes here, where I can easily retrieve in the future.
Module 1: Introducing Microsoft SharePoint 2010
- Physical Structure
3 server roles: Web server, App server, SQL server
- Logical Structure
Farm, Service App, Web App, Site Collection, Top-level Site.
- SharePoint Platform Architecture
- SP 2010 SP1 supports SQL server 2012.
- Create AD accounts: SP_Admin, SP_Farm, SP_ServiceApps.
- Create SQL login for SP: Add SP_Admin in SQL Server security login and assign dbcreator and securityadmin role. Add SP_Admin into local admin group.
- Install SP prerequisites: PrerequisiteInstallerFile folder, PrerequisiteInstaller.Arguments.txt, PrerequisiteInstaller.exe
- Install SP: GUI wizard (default.hta) or PowerShell script.
- Create SP Farm: Farm password can only be changed through PowerShell script afterwards. Authentication NTLM/ Kerberos.
- Create service application managed account.
Module 2: Create a SharePoint 2010 Intranet
- Create web application: Authentication: Classic Mode/ Claim Based. Host header is import.
- Create site collection: Don’t forget to add the DNS host records. Publish site page.
- Create a content database, then create site collection in it.
Module 3: Administering and Automating SharePoint
- Add PowerShell snap-in: Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell
- Configure least privilege rights to manage SP with PS:
$spcdb = Get-SPContentDatabase WSS_Content_Intranet
Add-SPShellAdmin –UserName CONTOSO\SP_Admin –Database $spcdb
- SP PowerShell cmdlets:
Get-Command –PSSnapin “Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell” | select name, definition | format-list > C:\SP2010_PowerShell_Commands.txt
- stsadm is duplicated with PS.
Food is as important as SharePoint! Just for fun, I also want to keep a record of this week’s lunch
