The articles in this chapter include:

  • Install Office SharePoint Server 2007 on a stand-alone computer discusses how to install Office SharePoint Server 2007 on a single-server computer running the Windows Server 2003 operating system. A stand-alone configuration is useful if you want to evaluate Office SharePoint Server 2007 features and capabilities, such as collaboration, document management, and search. A stand-alone configuration is also useful if you are deploying a small number of Web sites and you want to minimize administrative overhead.

  • Perform a stand-alone installation of Office SharePoint Server 2007 on Windows Server 2008 discusses how to install Office SharePoint Server 2007 on a single-server computer running the Windows Server 2008 operating system. A stand-alone configuration is useful if you want to evaluate Office SharePoint Server 2007 features and capabilities, such as collaboration, document management, and search. A stand-alone configuration is also useful if you are deploying a small number of Web sites and you want to minimize administrative overhead.

  • Deploy in a simple server farm (Office SharePoint Server) discusses how to do a clean installation of Office SharePoint Server 2007 in a server farm environment on the Windows Server 2003 operating system. You can deploy in a server farm environment if you are hosting a large number of sites, if you want the best possible performance, or if you want the scalability of a multi-tier topology.

    Upgrading to Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 from Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 provides significant improvements in enterprise search capability. However, policy or resource constraints in an organization sometimes pose challenges that can prevent or postpone a complete upgrade. Even if your organization is not ready to perform a complete upgrade from SharePoint Server 2007, you can take advantage of end-user enterprise search capabilities of SharePoint Server 2010 from your SharePoint Server 2007 deployment by performing a search-first migration.

  • Migrate a stand-alone installation to a server farm installation (Office SharePoint Server 2007) discusses the process for moving from a stand-alone installation to a server farm installation. This process consists of creating a new server farm, and then migrating the data from your stand-alone server to the new farm.
