Intentional Thinking Enrique Lima SharePoint
SharePoint 2010 and Windows Server Backup
A couple of months ago, a friend found a bit of information on TechNet that has proven to be quite useful. See, I am of the opinion SharePoint allows for smaller deployments to be made, and with that said, I am talking about SharePoint Foundation 2010 being used for the most part. But truly the point here is not to discuss whether or not a deployment of SharePoint Foundation 2010 or SharePoint Server 2010 is right or not. The fact is they do take place and happen. And information will reside there. ......

Configuration of Hyper-V and creation of VMs
In continuing with the post that I started last week, this week I focus on how I used PowerShell to install Hyper-V on Windows 8 and then create all necessary items to continue the creation of the SharePoint lab running on Hyper-V on Windows 8. First thing, in all situations I started PowerShell as Administrator. And yes, many of this items can be done and worked on through the GUI. But, the point is how do I automate. Also, assumptions here are you have a licensed version of Windows 8, and your ......

Creating a SharePoint Demo/Dev Lab using Hyper-V on Windows 8. The Overview.
In the last number of days, I have come across the release of the Microsoft Office Division Demo VMs. While a great asset, it is also quite large and it consumes a lot of resources, this being said as I have a Lenovo W530 with 32GB RAM, and 3 Hard Drives. The download is a 56GB set, then expanded it comes to 220GB. That is just the storage piece. Then in order to get all VMs running, it requires 42GB RAM … not quite what I wanted in the end, but still useful in a given situation. That brought me ......

Microsoft Office Division Demos: First Look at the Office 365 SharePoint Online Demo site
It took close to 10hrs to provision, below are some screenshots of what is the generated content. More details and info to come… but for now, make sure you check the email you will receive from the system once the platform is fully provisioned (otherwise you will go crazy getting logged on) and you do not want to disrupt the process of getting the packs in place. First thing, log on … Next, check your Office 365 dashboard … notice the area in the red rectangle, I am thinking that is due (based on ......

Site Directory in SharePoint 2010
Sometimes there are so many changes to the environment in which we work and live in that something will escape our attention. In discussing functionality with a client today, the topic of Site Directory came up and the comment of “well, we use it but it is too bad it is not available in 2010” was made … and huge sense of huh?!? came to me. Well, the item that escaped me came to light (and I know there are others). So researching about it was not only an option it was/is my duty. Found an excellent ......

Microsoft Office Division Demos: Office 365 Provisioning
A couple of items to know and understand about this. One is the overall setup you will have completed, and then the other is the time it takes. Overall Setup Important to understand you will be working with a new trial tenant, you can’t use an existing one. Also, the tenant is an E3, that means $20 month/user if you decide to move from trial to permanent. Time to provision Here is what this looked like at around 1PM today … This is what it looks like close to 9hrs later … When you received the email ......

Microsoft Office Division Demos: First Impression
I came across the following information on twitter today: “Microsoft has made available a demo environment for the Microsoft Office platform”. What is this, you may ask? Well it is a smorgasbord demo environment!! It includes Microsoft Office, Lync, Exchange, SharePoint, and all in the 2013 stack. You get two possible options, one is to create a demo Office 365 site, the other is to download a set of VHDs. The initial details on this … If you chose to download the VHDs, you can download with demo ......

SharePoint 2010 Information Worker VM available for download
If you interested in a test drive of the technologies around the Wave 14 launch, take look at the VM made available from Microsoft. It is a very well rounded option to explore the new products. 2010 Information Worker Demonstration and Evaluation Virtual Machine Note: It is important to understand you will need a system with Hyper-V to import this VM and get it off and working. Also, make sure you keep a copy of the original unpacked VM as this is based on a trial version of the OS (time bombed) ......
