New Videos on SharePoint Installation and Configuration

Following are the new videos we posted this week for our site Subscribers:

  • This video presents and talks through the architecture, pre-requisites and preparation required to plan for a WSS 3.0 or MOSS 2007 installation. It shows the supporting services required for the installation and also how to plan for the OS, IIS, and other requirements that serve as the necessity for planning a successful SharePoint deployment.

  • This video demonstrates the process of installing WSS 3.0 and MOSS 2007 as a single server install. Then it shows how to setup some of the global settings that need to be immediately configured after the install. The video also examines how to assign server roles in a SharePoint server farm.

  • This video shows the process of setting up initial configuration settings that need to be made on a new SharePoint installation. Administration tasks such as setting up services across multiple servers is also shown. Incoming and outgoing mail settings are demonstrated. Also, the installation of pdf ifilter is demonstrated so that pdf files can be indexed and searched by SharePoint.

More coming up next week. 

We are eagerly awaiting the time when we can show you SharePoint 2010 information. We have already started creating videos on it. It’s going to be super exciting stuff!
