SharePoint 2010 comprises an abundance of new features, and this book shows you how to take advantage of all SharePoint 2010's many improvements. Written by a four-time SharePoint MVP, Beginning SharePoint 2010 Administration begins with a comparison of SharePoint 2010 compared to the previous version and then examines the differences between SharePoint Foundation (SPF) and SharePoint Server (SPS).
This book is written for several audiences. One audience is consultants and IT professionals who need to understand how to plan, implement, and configure SharePoint. Another audience is administrators and the support team that must know how to manage SharePoint, both the more advanced administration of service applications and site collections, as well as managing sites and workspaces. A third audience is the reader who wants to understand how SharePoint works and what to expect from it; this is typically IT managers and project leaders.
This book assumes no previous knowledge of SharePoint, but if you do have experience with SharePoint you will learn how SharePoint 2010 differs from previous releases. If you intend to read and try all the exercises in this book, you will need some basic understanding of network applications such as Windows Servers, Microsoft SQL Server, Active Directory, DNS and IIS, as well as experience with Microsoft Office. If you don't intend to install SharePoint yourself, then it is not necessary to have that network understanding.
What This Book Covers
This book consists of 10 chapters and 4 appendixes. If you want to learn how to install and configure SharePoint Foundation, you should start reading Appendixes A and B. If you will install SharePoint Server 2010, you should still quickly read Appendixes A and B, since they cover the basic functionality also valid for SharePoint Server; then you should continue reading carefully Appendixes C and D. All these appendixes are very technical and detailed, but you need to understand all this in order to install a SharePoint 2010 environment that follows Microsoft's Best Practice to match the requirements of your organization.
If you don't plan to install SharePoint yourself, then you can start reading Chapter 1 and all the other chapters. If some of them are less interesting to you, you should still read them quickly to get an understanding of what they cover. Later you might need that information, and then it will be valuable to know where to find it.
