The following list provides recommended practices for configuring and administering Connection Point Services.
Specify POP settings (sometimes called service types) so users can search for the POPs that suit their needs and filter out the ones they do not want. For more information, see Make the most of POP settings.
Set up permissions before attempting to publish phone books to Phone Book Service (PBS). For more information, see Set permissions early.
Secure the Phone Book Administrator (PBA) and PBS folders to avoid synchronization problems and to prevent unauthorized personnel from posting to the host server. For more information, see Safeguard your files.
Back up phone book databases and other important files to preserve POP and region information. For more information, see Back up your data.
