REAL WORLD

Dan Holme

This chapter will illuminate what are, for many SharePoint administrators, among the most confusing and difficult-to-grasp concepts and skills. SharePoint 2010 (which, technically, is SharePoint version 4) is almost unrecognizable when compared to early versions; however, the legacy of those early versions comes back to haunt you, with terminology that is used by the underlying engine—the object model and command-line parameters—quite different than the terminology used in the user interface and documentation. Lesson 1 will clarify the administrative roles and the options you have for administering SharePoint—specifically, Central Administration, Stsadm.exe, and Windows PowerShell. Lesson 2 will introduce what is undoubtedly the most important administrative change in SharePoint 2010—the introduction of Windows PowerShell as the preferred command-line and automation interface. SharePoint has traditionally suffered from a dearth of tools that could examine, monitor, and operate across multiple websites, site collections, and web applications. Windows PowerShell steps in to fill those gaps, and to enable administrators to be far more productive than would be possible with Central Administration and Stsadm.exe alone.
