moss notes

SQL Administrator + IIS Administrator => MOSS Admin
WSS -> Moss std -> Moss Enterprise.
WSS = STS = Share point Team Services called earlier.
192.168.16.22
255.255.255.0

win2k3 Server : wss 1.0 inbuilt.
WSS : Windows Sharepoint Services: WSS at its core is a site provisioning (creating,) and rendering engine.
Licensing is free and which has less features when compared to MOSS.
MOSS: Microsoft SharePoint Server:

Difference b/w these two products:
1. WSS 3.0 – Free , Less features.( .NET framework : 2.0 / 3.5 )
Collaboration – security/grouping/search.
2. MOSS 2007 – Client access license ($CAL) , GroupCAL’s . More features.
a. Standard and Enterprise ( Standard + BI +Support ).($4448)

ECM – Enterprise Content Management.
SSO , ESearch – Indexing server ,BDC.
WCM (Web content management = web pub, workflows, search – for internet as well),
DW (older name) -> BI -> key performance indicators.

MOSS > SPSS coz M – microsoft office products are supported in MOSS.
: Excel share point services – calculation specifically provided.
: Infopath form services : FORM sending for extracting data.
: Groove : Version and ( MOGS / MOPS / MOCommunicationServer 2007/ MO.. / )

Exchange server
Forefront security server
SQL Server
MOCS – server
SCOM- monitoring moss.
AD Server –
CommerceServer/ PerformancePoint Server – Only for BI.

Similarlity b/w these two products:
1. MOSS = WSS + Layers of functionality over it.
Engine is WSS.
A portal is a web site that gathers information from various disparate geographical locations in order to share that
information across variant domains of users.

Portal
====================
1. Collaboration: Forum, wiki.
2. Security :Authentication/authorization
3 ways:
1. Windows integrated authentication(Default mechanism)
2. Forms based authenticated (FBA)
3. Single sign on (SSO)
3. Search
4. Personalization
5. Interopability:web services, SOA, integrated with other applications.
6. Content Management
7. Resource Management

ISAPI.dll – Internet services application programming interface.dll
(Dll – dynamic link library)
RENDER pages: Pick up and render page – works ONLY for static pages.
ASP.NET (active server pages version 3.5 ~ same as .NET framework version)

Install .net framework and activate ASP.NET

moss pages – has the below ENGINE: WSS
WSS has the below engine right now:
W3WP.exe = windows share point services worker process : CORE ENGINE :

STORAGE
===============
mandatory sql server
– in binary format all files. are stored data storage – stored in content db – sql server
– file system : those files which need to be cached so that to avoid db calls.

1. SAP portal/ – lot of features – high cost.
2. M/S moss / –
3. Websphere IBM –
4. Aqualogic. Oracle –
5. Vignette – works on .NET and Java –

6. Lotus Notes – IBM – lotus script.
7. Joomla – open source / php = personal home pages
8. Interwover
9. .NET Nuke

PreRequisites of installing share point:
recommd: users, concurrent users, location of farm and servers, network connectivity – T1/ T2.

HARDWARE:
1. 800 MHz processor ( recommd: QUAD/ZION Processors)
2. 512 mb ram ( 8 GB)
3. 10 GB SADA HD min (500 GB : SCSI small computer secondary interface/ FIBRE CHANNEL – cheetah – by SeaGate 20 times faster/hot spots – swap disks without shutting down.)

SOFWARE:
1. win2k3 : Recmdd sp2 (atleast sp1) / or / win2k8 server
2. web ed: Not recommended
std ed:
3. IIS 6.0/ or /7.0
4. ASP 2.0 or 3.5
5. .NET fwk ( 2.0 + 3.0 means install both since 3.0 only has wcf communication fount – web svc/wpf presentn found/wwf // and cardspace – windows security) or 3.5 ( 3.5 is both 3.0 + 2.0)
6. SQLServer 2000 + SP4 atleast OR 2005 (+SP3) OR 2008 (Content DB)
7. MOSS

SQL Server 2005 1. Express (free) / workgroup 3/dev 25$ per developer No scaling/ standard2/enterprise 1(25 K$ per server / per processor) / enterprise eval/mobile
MDE : m/s desktop engine ( sqlserver 2000 msde edition) = express 2005. 5 db max. max each 2 gb size.
max ram express support = 1 gb ram.

SHAREPOINT DEPLOYMENT
==============

1. Standalone: Box1 – install everything on one single machine – Max concurrent users : 300.
sql server + w3wp consume high amt of resources. CANNOT upgrade to farm from standalone. Remove everything then only you can add.
Web ed only works on standalone.

2. Webfarm deployment –
Network load balancing.
All Web Servers are synch with all applications. same configuration. load distributed – high response time.
Web ed doesnt work here

THREE TYPES OF FARM:
i. Small Farm: ( 2 boxes)
ii. Medium Farm: ( 3 to 5 boxes)
iii. Large Farm: ( 6 to 8 boxes)

Cannot have more than 8 boxes – excluding SQL Server.

How to determine which machine is part of FARM.

DNS Round robin does not take care of fail over
NLB : On the network interface properties – Install it – administrative console for managing clusters.
Works at two level : manual priority and then generic load factor redirection. This works at switch level
CLUSTER ID = eg: 1 and 2 NICS (Unicast – better performance) and .2 .3 .4 machines.

DOMAIN – multiple windows machine
CLUSTER – multiple MOSS server connected
WEBFARM – multiple web servers are connected.

Capacity planning tool + Sharepoint configuration wizard: Use tool to make topology. Exchange/SS

INSTALLATION
====================

COMPLETE .s. – has everything – can work as Index server or QUERY server or BOTH.

WFE = Incomplete installation ( does not have some of the web services for indexing + ECS EcontentSearch?)
CS more heavy than WFE.

Index runs in the background and reads the content and pushes it in the database.

More number of WFE (4) + and less number (2)
WFE misses INDEX servers – since most users wish to access basic pages.
So pushed INDEX server at the back. (5,8)

NLB – priority should be
1:2
Index: WFE

1 2 3 4
5 6
— —
7 8

WFE > faster than COMPLETE SERVER.
4 WFE FASTER than 4 complete server.
OK to do: 4 WFE and 2 Complete server.

all WFE does not work!!! – atleast ONE Complete has to be there in the farm.
other combinations will work.

Database mirroring 2005/2008. up in 3 seconds
sql server 2000: – 30 seconds

First BOX – better to install complete? : COMPLETE – has admin services as well. if unsure install this.
either we join a farm or we create a farm.

Configuration Database: farms / sites / index server information / web site-box mapping.
Raid mirroring: copy of hd.
Database mirror
Log shipping
Replication

1 FARM – 1 configuration DB

CONNECTION
===============
1. IP Address
2. port number
3. Host Header

IP address:
Each NIC can have ONE IP Address ( Assign MUTIPLE IP to the same NIC >????)

PAST
===============
SPSS 2003 WSS 2.0 / SPSS 2001 WSS 1.0
(Sharepoint portal Server)

Cost?: Cost will be:
Per server /
per seat /
per client

win2k3 -5
MOSS 2010 in 2010 first quarter.
EPM/
win2kenterprise server = 25 seat
seat – atleast 5 or multiple of 5.
45K$
MOSS – not more than 24K user in a single farm.
Depending on number of server/client – you will need to pay.

Inplace Upgrade : Only if size < = 30 GB. : easiest. you cannot roll back. Take everything offline.
Gradual Upgrade : For every web site: it asks you. In LIVE.
Database Upgrade : Needs to be offline.

1 – 65535
DNS does not care abt port number
IP + Port = socket.
