5.2. Advanced Administration

The previous list contains just a few of the settings that an administrator has to know about, in order to get the most out of a MOSS environment. In fact, there are more settings available than this book can cover, but you will learn all the important ones here. Remember that MOSS is a very advanced product that also easily can be expanded by adding new features or connecting to other systems. Even so, MOSS is easy to manage and configure, as long as you take it step by step and know what you are doing.

5.2.1. Two Important Tasks to Start With

After all the four tasks in the basic configuration part are completed, you will see a new list of administrator tasks show up on the Central Administrations Home page (if not, press F5 to refresh your web browser). You may remember that directly after the installation of MOSS, text in red said "Server Farm Configuration Not Complete!" Now this text is gone, but still there are most likely some other settings to configure before opening MOSS to all users. Note that in most installation scenarios you do not have to perform all the administrative tasks in this list, nor do you need to follow it in order. In fact, you usually do not follow this order. To help you configure SharePoint 2007 in a proper way, this chapter will present typical tasks to perform and in a more logical order. The complete list of the new administrator tasks is shown in the following table.
