5 Controlling Bandwidth Usage Services such as WSUS use BITS to download data. By default, data is downloaded at maximum speed and throughout the day. Restricting the bandwidth available to BITS and the time slots during which to operate, bandwidth usage can be reduced.

6 Controlling Bandwidth Usage Create a SBS Bits Configuration Group Policy Edit the new policy Navigate to Computer Configuration->Policies->Administrative Templates- >Network-> Background Intelligent Transfer Service Double click Maximum network bandwidth for BITS background transfers This setting limits the network bandwidth that BITS uses for background transfers (this setting does not affect foreground transfers). You can specify a limit to use during a specific time interval and a limit to use at all other times. For example, limit the use of network bandwidth to 10 Kbps from 8AM to 5PM, and use all available unused bandwidth the rest of the time. If you enable this setting, BITS will limit its bandwidth usage to the specified values. You can specify the limit in kilobits per second (Kbps). If you specify a value less than two kilobits BITS will continue to use approximately two kilobits. To prevent BITS transfers from occurring, specify a limit of 0. If you disable or do not configure this setting, BITS uses all available unused bandwidth.

7 Controlling Bandwidth Usage

17 Drive Architectures & Swap files The more drives the better 1 x System Drive 1 x Exchange Drive 1 x Data Drive Create a dedicate partition on non system drive for pagefile to reduce fragmentation related performance issues More spindles offer best performance

18 SharePoint – Client Integration On new installations, Client Integration is not enabled.

Launch SharePoint Central Administration- >Application Management->Authentication Providers->Default Zone Select Yes radio button in the Enable Client Integration section Click Save

19 Sharepoint – Client Integration

20 SharePoint – Enabling Search SharePoint 3.0 in SBS 2008 does not require SQL server for full text search But full text search must be enabled manually Download and install Office 2007 iFilter Reset IIS (iisreset) Stop SharePoint search index process (stsadm – o spsearch –action fullcrawlstop ) Restart indexing of sites (stsadm –o spsearch – action fullcrawlstart )

21 SBS 2008 CALS CALS are not activated in SBS 2008 There is no “Installed CALS” view as there was in SBS 2003 CALS are therefore paper based (DSP) or eOpen (VLM)

24 Customizing RWW landing page You can customize the appearance of Remote Web Workplace, including adding a display name for sign-in, sign-out, and the home page. You can also choose a background image and display your company’s logo. Remote Web Workplace supports the GIF, PNG, BMP, and JPG image formats. Your custom background image or logo should be approximately 760 pixels wide by 500 pixels tall. Additionally, you can select only from image files that are stored in the \Program Files\Windows Small Business Server\Bin\webapp\Remote\Images folder on the server. If you have custom images that you want to use, copy them to this folder first.
