SharePoint Training


As I have mentioned several times before, I am a big fan of free training.  I am also a big fan of SharePoint.  So… let’s combine the two!

The Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 Training Portal Edition, built on the Microsoft SharePoint Learning Kit, is designed for server administrators who want to help their end-users learn how to use the features of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007.

    I have previously mentioned some free training that is available for SharePoint here: http://blogs.technet.com/seanearp/archive/2007/12/07/sharepoint-training.aspx

    Just got the following from one of the consultants on an internal discussion list.  I guess you CAN install SharePoint as a farm on top of SQL Express (although it would still live only on a single box):

    "I have installed MOSS in a Farm configuration with SQL Express. You install SQL Express first, then when installing MOSS, choose Farm configuration, and point it to the local instance of MOSS. Of course, it is all on the same box, but it is not the ‘All in one’ configuration that installs SQL Express automatically. I like doing it this way because it is  a little more flexible."

    Hey James-

    Great question.  I haven’t tried it personally, but MOSS 2007 can be installed on top of SQL Server Express, subject to a few limitations:

    1) You cannot create a farm when using SQL Express

    2) SQL Express cannot be accessed remotely, and would have to run on the same box as SharePoint

    3) MOSS would have to be installed in the "Single Server" configuration

    also, SQL Express has some scalability limitations, namely:

    Scalability and Performance

    • Supports 1 CPU

    • 1 gigabyte (GB) addressable RAM

    • 4 GB maximum database size

    So… as long as those perf limitations work within your environment, you should be fine.  If you have some spare time and a test server, you can download the trial here: http://www.microsoft.com/sharepoint/trynow.mspx

    Hi,

    Do you know if (with the Server Site Version) above you can use SQL Express 2005 instead of the full version as our company only uses SQL 2000 for our main systems. So, I can only see SQL Express as being an option?

    Thanks in advance.

    James.
