5 5 | SharePoint Saturday Michigan 2012 Agenda (Hint: There isn’t one) Why System Reviews are a good idea. When should System Reviews be done? What is a SharePoint System Review? How they are more than just maintenance?

6 6 | SharePoint Saturday Michigan 2012 If It Ain’t Broke… You have just been lucky! SharePoint is not a Complainer Just because you didn’t upgrade doesn’t mean nothing has changed. 074 (September 2011) 074 050 (July 2012) 050

7 7 | SharePoint Saturday St. Louis 2012 Service Packs and Cumulative Updates  Service Packs  Should be a Goal.  Repeat after me. We all have test Farms.  Cumulative Updates  What’s in it for you?  That being said: The sad truth about SharePoint 2010 SP1

8 8 | SharePoint Saturday Michigan 2012 It Works, but is it Right? Service Accounts One is not enough Service Applications They are there, but are they doing anything? User Profile Service Application Search Crawls Web Analytics

9 9 | SharePoint Saturday Michigan 2012 Is Your Farm Speaking to You? Incoming Mail and Outgoing mail Incoming sharepoint-2010/ sharepoint-2010/ Outgoing sharepoint-2010/ sharepoint-2010/

10 10 | SharePoint Saturday Michigan 2012 What is SharePoint Hiding? Timer Jobs One piece of PowerShell Get-SPTimerJob | select name | ForEach-Object {Get- SPTimerJob $} | ForEach-Object {$_.historyentries} | Where-Object {$_.status -eq "Failed"} | select JobDefinitionTitle, StartTime, ErrorMessage > c:\FailedTimerJobs.txt Some things that can go wrong in SharePoint will only show up here or in an exhaustive search of the logs.

11 11 | SharePoint Saturday Michigan 2012 Speaking of SharePoint Logs C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\Logs Correlation IDs Google or Bing can’t help you -ids-in-sharepoint-2010.aspx -ids-in-sharepoint-2010.aspx Correlation IDs are UNDERRATED!

12 12 | SharePoint Saturday Michigan 2012 Event Logs Most of the Action is in the Application logs. My lottery number is 6-39-8-55-86 (6398 5586) The Security Log is especially important for authentication There is a lot of Stuff, what is really important? Errors and Warnings Repetition and Timing Event ID numbers are usually searchable, but don’t forget the error messages.

13 13 | SharePoint Saturday Michigan 2012 Web Applications Site Collections & Alternate Access Mappings Do you know what each one is? Can any of them be eliminated (after a backup!) ? Can, or should, any of your content be split up?

14 14 | SharePoint Saturday Michigan 2012 Back To SQL Post service pack 1 the Content DB limit is 4TB (still 200GB for Collaboration) Does that really help you? Are SQL and SharePoint a good place for an archive? SQL Backups are King for keeping your content safe. Schedule them, use them, love them. Database Management Database types and management us/library/cc678868.aspx us/library/cc678868.aspx

15 15 | SharePoint Saturday Michigan 2012 Why bother? SharePoint does more than you can see at first glance. The Future is almost here:  us/evalcenter/hh973397.aspx us/evalcenter/hh973397.aspx A well maintained Farm is much easier to upgrade. A small investment for what could be a big return.

16 16 | SharePoint Saturday Michigan 2012 Final Thoughts A System Review is about more than errors and patches. SharePoint, SharePoint Saturdays and the Microsoft Community. Thank You!
