Will Administration Tasks Be Easier in SharePoint 2007

  Asked By: Stephanie    Date: Nov 20    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 804

To everyone that has tried out the next SharePoint version:

SharePoint 2003 Administration:
* Microsoft Admin tools are low quality
* Difficult to copy portal from one farm to a next (Impossible?)
* Administrative pages for SharePoint Portal and WSS sites are poorly
organized causing even experienced SP admins frustration.

Now in SharePoint 2007 CMS and SharePoint 2003 are rolled into one,
upgraded product with many, many more features. Are any of these
Administration issues mentioned above addressed?

Here's my take, for what it's worth. The Admin pages in 2007 are much better
organized and more powerful. Administration tasks  are arranged in a more
intuitive way, and the Administration object model has been completely
refactored. MOSS 2007, the Portal/CMS replacement, is running entirely on the
WSS platform, unlike before where it was (but not really). This means that the
MOSS functionality can be enabled, or "lit up" on a WSS site. So copying a MOSS
site from one farm to another is basically the same as copying a WSS site
collection from one site to another from what I can tell.

I have installed the sharepoint  2007 two days back and it looks very close to full fledged Content Management Solution Provider. I am yet to explore much but the Administration page and its features look awesome. I am exploring the workflow now and will let all of you know if something new comes…..

I don’t know that I agree the Admin tools for 2003 are “low quality.” However, the 2007 experience is much better. Staging is supported and the administrative experience is definitely more organized.
