My esteemed colleague K.C. Cross on the SharePoint writing team has just published Demonstrate profile synchronization, a new Test Lab Guide (TLG) for SharePoint Server 2013.
This new TLG steps you through the configuration and demonstration of profile synchronization using the SharePoint Server synchronization tool. This tool synchronizes user profiles between SharePoint Server 2013 and a single Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) domain controller.
While working through this configuration, K.C. also took the opportunity to test and improve two other TLGs for SharePoint:
- Configure intranet and team sites (previously known as Configure intranet collaboration)
- Demonstrate social features
Here is a portion of the TLG stack for SharePoint Server 2013 showing the new relationship of these TLGs (click on it to see a larger version):
For anyone who has been challenged by the successful configuration of profile synchronization in SharePoint, this new TLG walks you through the entire process in the SharePoint 2013 three-tier farm test lab.
Hats off to K.C. for this great new addition to the SharePoint 2013 TLG suite!
See SharePoint Server 2013 Test Lab for the complete list of TLGs for SharePoint Server 2013 (there are now 18 of them!), including the SharePoint Server 2013 Business Intelligence TLG stack.
For more information about TLGs, see Test Lab Guides.
Enjoy (synchronously, this time)!
