|MICROSOFT OFFICE SHAREPOINT UPGRADE 2003-2007
TRAINING COURSE CONTENT- DURATION - 1 DAY
|Part 1 - Upgrading to SharePoint 2007:
Module 1: Introducing Microsoft Office SharePoint 2007 and Windows SharePoint Services version 3
This module presents a quick introduction to the two new products. As with previous versions, customers will have the option of deploying Windows SharePoint Services v3 as part of their Windows Server 2003 deployments, or, for an additional price, deploying the full Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (MOSS 2007) premium product. This module will explain the differences between the two products and will lay a foundation for the process of determining which is most suitable.
Module 2: Overview of Upgrade Requirements, Process and Options
This module will cover the hardware and software requirements for MOSS
2007 and WSS v3. The pros and cons of using SQL Server 2000 vs. SQL Server
2005 will be discussed along with new Microsoft technologies such as Windows
Workflow Foundation that are now required for SharePoint.
Module 3: Review of typical SPS 2003 and WSS v2 customizations that can impact the upgrade process
The upgrade that you will work through in class uses a Virtual PC (VPC)
image that contains a highly-customized deployment of SPS 2003 and WSS
v2. The goal of starting with this image is to simulate a relatively complex
real-world deployment of SPS 2003 and WSS v2.
Module 4: Performing the upgrade using the gradual option
In this module each student will connect to an instance of Virtual Server 2005 on the classroom network and use that instance to upgrade the VPC image in an isolated environment. The gradual upgrade option will be used in the lab.
Module 5: Analyzing the results of the upgrade and determining issues that must be resolved
The instructor will lead an analysis and discussion of the results of the automated upgrade and point out specific problems\issues with the upgraded system.
Module 6: Strategies and techniques for resolving upgrade issues
The instructor will present strategies and techniques for resolving the issues that occur due to features and content that do not upgrade successfully or completely.
Module 7: Tour of major new features in SharePoint 2007
This module will provide an overview presentation and demos of the most
important new features that have been added to SharePoint 2007. The presentation
Module 8: Digging Deeper - UI Enhancements and Navigation
In SPS 2003 and WSS v2, there are many inconsistencies in the user interface.
Frequently, users complain that they get “lost” while attempting
to navigate from portal to sites and from sites to sites. Also, it is
common for users to see menu items to which they apparently have access,
but then receive an authentication challenge when they click on them.
Module 9: Digging Deeper - Document Management and Office 2007 Integration
One of the major selling points for SharePoint 2003 has been the document
management capabilities of document libraries and Office 2003. For many
companies this has been a vast improvement over server-based file shares.
However, SharePoint 2003 has also been criticized for having too many
“rough edges” in its document management functionality.
Module 10: Digging Deeper – Workflow
SPS 2003 and WSS do not include a true workflow engine. SharePoint 2007, on the other hand, incorporates all of the richness of the Windows Workflow Foundation. Furthermore, the new SharePoint Designer client application (the successor to FrontPage 2003) includes a built-in Workflow Designer. In this module, the student will gain hands-on experience with the new workflow engine and the capabilities of the Workflow Designer.
Module 11: Digging Deeper - New Web Parts
Many new and improved web parts are included in SharePoint 2007. In
this module, you will gain hands-on experience with several, including:
Module 12: Digging Deeper - Search
In SPS 2003 and WSS v2, in many instances the Search experience is confusing
due to the fact that the two products use different indexing and search
engines and different user interfaces.
Module 13: Server Farm Topology and Administration Enhancements
The administration interface for SharePoint 2007 has been completely
re-designed based on feedback from customers. The time-consuming, less-than-intuitive
hierarchy of administration web pages has been replaced with a more streamlined
approach that is designed to make it easier for administrators to find
the configuration options they are looking for.
