SharePoint Foundation on SBS 2008 – the video

I have just made available to all Windows SharePoint Operation Guide subscribers 3 videos that cover the whole process of getting SharePoint Foundation 2010 running on SBS 2008. These videos cover how to install the prerequisites, SharePoint Foundation 2010 on SBS 2008 as well as migration of existing Companyweb data.


I will be updating the Guide documentation to cover all the information in these video but I wanted to make sure that subscribers had access to this as soon as possible. Going forward I am planning on doing more video tutorials for subscribers as I think they arte generally an easier way to convey information quicker.

Now all my subscribers know

That’s right, the July update of the Windows SharePoint Operations Guide has been released to subscribers and it contains the complete instructions on installing SharePoint Foundation 2010 on SBS 2008. It takes you through the whole process as well as the integration with the existing SBS 2008 console.


In very near future I’ll also be covering in the Guide how to do a complete migration of any existing Companyweb site onto SharePoint Foundation 2010 on SBS 2008. I’ll also release these details via this blog but over a longer period of time as my first priority is to the people that subscribe to my Guide (thanks to all those). So if you really want to know how to do it step by step then I’d suggest you get my Guide (it’s cheap for the amount of time it will save you and you get for 12 months!).


Another upgrade to this month is the migration of the Guide to its own SharePoint site. Much like my new BPOS Portal the new Guide site will provide a much better platform to deliver content for subscribers.




As you can see from the above screen shot the Guide covers a number of different versions of SharePoint including WSS v3, Foundation 2010, MOSS and even BPOS. Many of these are still a work in progress but the important things is that additional information is being added to these regularly. I used to update the Guide monthly but this new SharePoint site should allow me to do it far more regularly.


Now not only do subscribers now have a step by step process for getting SharePoint Foundation running on their SBS 2008 machines, they have a new site full of SharePoint content that is being updated daily and of course that have full access to the new CIAOPS BPOS Portal as that is a free inclusion for all Guide subscribers.


As AMEX says, the benefits of membership.
