Twin Cities IT and Developer Events Postings by Brandy Favilla

Topic:  SharePoint 2007 Administration

You are invited to the SharePoint User group on Wednesday, October 8.

At this event we will dig into components of SharePoint Administration.  We'll start by reviewing terminology for SharePoint Administration.  Next we'll dig into Backup and Recovery in SharePoint.  Finally we'll look at ways to move SharePoint content around using various tools and techniques.

Discussion points include:

  • STSADM commands
  • Catastrophic vs. more granular backup/restore methods
  • The Content Migration Wizard

While this topic focuses on SharePoint Administration topics it will be valuable for non-administrators to understand the capabilities of SharePoint as well as for Developers who will learn new ways to automate administrative tasks in SharePoint.

If you have specific questions that you would like answered, we encourage you to submit them to, so that the presenters can address them to the best of their ability.
