    • ex HR, IT, Sales etc.

  • Create multiple top level sites

  • Different security

  • Different quotas

  • Different templates

  • Workspaces / Department type sites in different collection

    • Workspaces are temporary


WSS – Top Level Site Quotas

  • By default no quota is selected

  • Set default quota template at virtual

  • Set up quota template(s) to manage growth

    • Max site size in MB

    • Reminder email (size in MB)

    • Once max is reached, no new content can be added

  • Applies to new sites once created

  • If removed, existing sites still have quotas


WSS – Top Level Site Locks

  • Helps to prevent runaway sites

  • Prevent sites from being accessed

  • Prevent users from adding additional content

  • Prevent access to entire site

  • Only administrator can unlock the site


WSS – Cleaning up Unused Sites

  • How to address proliferation of WSS sites

  • SharePoint provides mechanism for managing unused sites

  • Specific to each virtual

  • Configurable properties

    • After n days

    • Can automatically delete site

    • Delete is entire collection

    • Configure schedule of notices

  • Possibly use stsadm.exe to archive site to file



Tracking Statistics in SharePoint

  • Site usage

  • Site collection usage

  • Site size

  • Site alerts

  • Storage space

    • Document libraries

    • Lists

    • Documents


WSS – Usage Analysis Configuration

  • Not configured by default

  • Log files are created daily if configured to use usage analysis

  • When processing is done, it is merged into the content database

  • Must be administrator on machine to setup for WSS

  • Viewing can only be done via site or subsite not for entire collection


WSS – Usage Analysis Results

  • Go to site to analyze

  • View by

    • Day

    • Month

  • View by:

    • Page

    • User

    • OS

    • Browser

    • Referrer URL

  • Good for Business Analysts to track effectiveness of sites


Usage Analysis Results in SPS!

  • Undocumented Tip!

  • Works in areas

  • Add “/_layouts/1033/usageDetails.aspx” to URL

  • Example:

  • http://intranet.necorp.com/sales/_layouts/1033/usageDetails.aspx


WSS – Site Collection Usage Summary

  • Tracks storage of disk used

  • Tracks users

  • Tracks activity

    • Total hits

    • bandwidth use (MB/Day)


WSS / SPS – Storage Space Allocation

  • Tracks

    • Document Libraries

    • Documents

    • Lists

  • Tracks

    • Size used

    • # of items

  • Quota provides different view



WSS Health Monitoring

  • Windows SharePoint Services Management Pack for MOM

  • Monitors events placed in the Microsoft Windows Server™ 2003 application event log by Windows SharePoint Services

  • Monitors performance of Windows SharePoint Services components

    • Status of database connection.

    • Monitoring the NT events such as web parts, Virus Scan, and HTML Viewer service

    • Audience compilation or profile import fails

    • Sending notification when issues occur


Planning and Managing

Backup / Restore


Planning for SharePoint Backup / Restore

  • Many different types of backup / restore methods available for WSS / SPS

  • Different types provide different levels of granularity

  • It is important for an organization to determine what levels of service are going to be provided

    • Portal level restore

    • Site level restore

    • Document / Item level restore

    • Time frame of restore (ex. < 8 hours, etc.)


WSS – Backup / Restore

  • A variety of tools available for backing up / restoring WSS

  • Pro’s and Cons of each method

    • SQL Server 2000 Backup and Restore

    • Command line stsadm.exe tool

    • Command line smigrate.exe tool / Front Page 2003


WSS – Backup / Restore – SQL Server 2000

  • Utilizes SQL Server 2000 native database backup / restore utilities

  • Backs up entire database

  • Easy to setup / schedule

  • Backup / restore entire configuration database and each content database


WSS – Backup / Restore – Stsadm.exe

  • Command line tool, needs to be programmed or scripted in batch file

  • Works for both MSDE and SQL Server 2000

  • Does site collection level backup / restore

  • Need to be administrator on local server

  • The backup for a top level site includes any subsites of the top level site.

  • Site backup and restore affects performance


WSS – Stsadm.exe Usage Scenarios

  • Can overwrite an existing site, all completely overwritten (i.e. no merge)

  • If trying to recover data from an existing site, restore to a new site and then copy data over to the existing site

  • Example: Use stsadm.exe if you want to recover a list or list item

    • Manual process requiring cut and paste

  • Link will be provided on www.sharepointmn.com to utility script for backing up many sites


WSS – Backup / Restore – Stsadm for Windows

  • .NET Windows app

  • GUI interface for generating and submitting STSADM commands

  • 3rd Party Freeware

  • Configurable via XML


WSS – Backup / Restore – Smigrate.exe

  • Command line tool designed for migrating sites

  • Does not necessarily preserve customization settings or security

  • Can be run by administrators of the site, don’t need to be administrator on local server

  • Need to create an empty website to restore to

    • DON’T APPLY TEMPLATE

  • Features are identical to Front Page 2003

    • Graphical User Interface

    • FrontPage 2003 is based on smigrate.exe


SPS – Backup / Restore

  • Primary utility is SharePoint Portal Server Backup and Restore application

  • Comes with SPS

  • Client tool (not web based)

  • SQL Server 2000 client tools must be installed where utility runs

  • Several accounts need write access to backup directory

    • SQL Service Account

    • Search service

    • Search database access

    • Configuring user


SPS – Backup / Restore

  • Only backup and restore entire portal

  • Simple, but lacks flexibility

  • Does not backup / restore custom web parts

  • Restoring a lost file from a document library requires restoring the entire portal

  • Backup files in “C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\60”

  • Depending on needs, may want to look at 3rd party tools


Add a Recycle Bin to WSS

  • Article aimed at developers

  • Discusses utilization of document library event model

  • Creates mirror document library

  • Effectively two copies of the document (may be unsuitable for large implementations)
