Scripting languages have always been a part of the Administrator’s toolkit. Unfortunately, most OSITAs (Old School IT Admins) were averse to learning or even leveraging scripting in their duties. Come to this session to lose your fear (BY PARTICIPATING) and see how easy this scripting language is and demonstrate the most common tasks in the life of a SharePoint Administrator.
SharePoint Server is a great document management system, however scaling your server to hold terabytes of data takes careful planning and configuration. In this session, you will learn all about archiving documents using the SharePoint Record Center via multi-stage retention policies. Also to be covered is an overview of SharePoint limits and boundaries as well as monitoring your Content Database using SQL Management Studio.

Configure and create federated location to leverage external system search capabilities inside SharePoint farm. Federate search allows administrators to use other systems search capabilities like Live, Google or other SharePoint farms and display results in their farm.
Microsoft’s Performance Monitor application makes a wealth of information about the components on the servers. In order to properly diagnose and troubleshoot SharePoint performance problems, SharePoint Admin often depends on a performance monitor (perfmon) log during problem period. Choosing or picking different sets of Performance Counters for SharePoint Servers are sometime cucumbersome and time comsuming. Also few client do not allow to log-in to Production Servers directly. Using Powershell we can achive all the possible scenario and can make re-usable script.
In the live demo will try to show how to make best use of PS and other free tool to make readable report from Perf Mon Counters.
In a perfect world, SharePoint systems are well planned with defined requirements, stakeholder approval, and methodology approaches. Oh, and unlimited budgets. But the reality of SharePoint implementations is deployments and operations are typically not what might be seen through rose-colored lenses.
In this session, you will learn what the instructors have seen in terms of worst practices and approaches for getting a system implementation and deployment back on track, as well as methods to fix and optimize operations that may not be addressing your system's current needs. For all of the things that can go wrong with your SharePoint implementation, one of the best things we can do is learn from others. From not accepting that implementing an established information architecture and having an available infrastructure are core tenets of every SharePoint installation to managing SLAs with your end users. Come to this class to hear not only worst practices, but also worst experiences.
The job of a SharePoint Administrator is one of the most demanding. You need to take care of the infrastructure; you need to make sure the SharePoint Farm is operating smoothly; you are expected to make improvements in reliability, features, and create enhancements for business users. All this, while being the helpdesk for anything related to SharePoint. In this session, we’ll talk about how best to handle all of that. We explore some best practices around SharePoint infrastructure, site architecture, permissions management as well as on-going maintenance. Whether you have a large budget (anyone?) or no budget, we’ll propose solutions to help make you a more efficient admin.
Microsoft’s next version of SharePoint is on the horizon – but there’s plenty of time to tune up your SharePoint 2010 environment to make things better now AND better for an upgrade. Based on a review of current upgrades, architecture, and content management, we’ll give you a smooth readiness plan for your current SharePoint system. We’ll review SharePoint maturity, best practices in coding, content consolidation, interface readiness, and database optimization.
