Become a MOSS Guru

another one of the great sessions at TechEd presented by Joel Oleson, Shane Young and Todd Klindt.


Again, the slides are attached to this post.


What I remembered of this session and what you also should remember:




  1. Installation: never, never, never, really never choose Basic installation. Go for Advanced and select complete installation.


  2. Think about SQL mirroring.



    • high performance (great for geographically separated SQL boxes over a WAN)


    • high availibility: replication between 2 SQL boxes and 1 witness server ( -> this can be a free SQL Express box!)


  3. Find the grade of customisation to your environment by looking at the foreign DLL file references in the web.config file


  4. App Pool Settings:



    • increase the startup limit


    • disable auto rapid fail.
