Configure farm settings (SharePoint Foundation 2010)
Published: May 12, 2010
After the initial installation of Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2010, you can configure several additional settings. Some of these settings include configuring usage and health data collection to ensure that you collect relevant data to analyze, configuring several diagnostic logging settings to help with troubleshooting, and configuring a mobile account so that users can receive alerts by means of Short Message Service (SMS) when changes have been made in a SharePoint list or item. The configuration of additional settings is optional, but many key features are not available unless these settings are configured.
