Chapter 6 – Using the new Central Admin

Wrox – Professional SP 2010 Admin: page 141

Managed Accounts –

When an account is registered/created with Sharepoint, an admin can maintain the account from within Sharepoint, such as password change. Once registered with Sharepoint, you need to change the password (if needed) inside Sharepoint in the future if needed.

[Extend] a web application – to extend the selected web application to a different IIS web site than the one in which it is currently hosted.

[Alternate Access Mapping] (AAM) provides a way to access the same Sharepoint content from different URLs. Useful if external uses a different URL to access the same page as the internal users. AAM needs to be configured if SP site is behind a reverse-proxy server.

Unlike SP 2007, Service applications are indivisual components that can be individually associated with web applications. (not all service applications need to be running on any given web applications)

By default, in each web application you can create 15,000 site collections. A warning event is triggered when number os site collections reaches 9,000.

Health Analyzer – the rule-based tool periodically scans the farm, checking various components and settings of Sharepoint and comparing them to a rule bank.

Timer job – similar to Health Analyzer inthat they run periodically, but the functionis to keep the farm up and running, not to scan for issues.

EVFP (event log flood prevention) is deisgned to keep ypur logs from becoming cluttered with hundreds or thousands of the same events repeating every couple of seconds.

Back up –

Farm backup/restore – perform high level backups for the entire farm or individual web application;
Granular backup – perform backups and exports of site collections, webs and lists.

Security –

4 permissions – (1) Full control (2) Full read (3) Deny write and (4) deny all.

General Security —

Managed accounts – register domaine accounts with SP so SP is responsible for them;
Service accounts – manage existing account associations with the various services on the farm.

Configure Trust – creating a new trust involves giving the trust a name, and pointing Sharepoint to the root authority certificate. All trusts require a root authority certificate. If you are seting up a trust to provide trust to another farm, you need to provide Sharepoint with a token issuer certificate.

Information Rights management (IRM) – default 4 policies: (1) labels (2) barcodes (3) Auditings and (4) Retention.

General App Settings –
