  • Blog Post: SharePoint and Virtualization - Better Together!

    I'm really excited about virtualization and think it's the best way to streamline deployments and get the most bang for buck out of your hardware. However, there are some important differences between virtual and physical environments that you need to be mindful of. I was hoping to get my virtualization...

  • Blog Post: Upgrading SharePoint SQL Servers to SQL Server 2008.

    SQL Server 2008 is now released and is supported by WSS 3.0 and MOSS 2007 SP1 and above although we probably won't see a supportability statement anytime soon due to resource constraints with the content folks. I will let you know when the official supportability statement is released. [Update] -...
  • Blog Post: SQL Mirroring Setup Made Easy

    In an ongoing effort to simplify mirroring I've decided to post the scripts I use to setup mirroring for myself. There are 9 easy steps to execute. The trick with most of these commands is that they output a script that you will need to copy into the query window and execute on the appropriate server...

  • Blog Post: Quick Blurb on SharePoint Deployment Best Practices

    SharePointJoel , Doron Bar Caspi, and I were interviewed by TechTarget after our *dizzying* session on Geo-distributed SharePoint Deployments at TechEd 08.

    I'm number 65! http://www.sharepointjoel.com/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=31 Wow! That's super especially considering how neglected my blog has become since joining my new team.

  • Blog Post: SharePoint = Job Security

    Just in case you didn't get the memo SharePoint is the fastest selling server product in the history of Microsoft according to BillG. (doesn't that also make it the fastest selling server product, period?) In a blog conversation I had with the honorable Cliff Reeves he noted a very interesting site...
  • Blog Post: Jason Cahill is In

    It's rare for anyone from the actual SharePoint product group to blog so it's noteworthy when they do. Jason Cahill just started blogging this month and already has a great collection of informative and practical posts that I recommend you read. http://sharepoint.microsoft.com/blogs/JCahill

  • Blog Post: SharePoint Training

    Just learned of this great resource. The SharePoint Learning Resources Site. It's a little clunky, but I didn't know MSFT had so much training available for SharePoint.
  • Blog Post: File Shares and SharePoint. Still a Hot Topic.

    I'm sometimes reminded that there is still a lot of debate over how to position file shares and SharePoint in an organization. There are still many people drinking the file share Kool-Aid and that's fine. I blogged about this a little over a year ago and it generated more than 5000 views and 8 comments...

  • Blog Post: Sweet! I've been saying we need this....

    OK, I had nothing to do with this, but it's definitely something I've been talking about. I think a lot of people who think about governance and SharePoint want a way to manage site collections in cohesive units. Now there's a way: http://www.codeplex.com/SPConfigurator I haven't used this yet...
  • Blog Post: SharePoint and Storage

  • Blog Post: Where do you host the SSP and admin web apps?

    SSP web app? Admin web app? By looking at the out-of-the-box options you can easily get confused. While I'm sure some postings already exist on this subject, I've gotten two questions about this recently which exceeds my criteria for posting. :-) The SharePoint and SSP administration sites do not...
