SPS 2003 - Corporate Portal Setup

  Asked By: Quintin    Date: May 16    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 548

I am wondering if anyone has created divisional portals similar to those
described in Microsoft's Solution Accelerator document series. I have
some company divisions that need to have their own content sources setup and
not share access to these with other divisions. I know seprate portals can
be setup but my understanding is that creating child portals below the main
portal can be setup to use the same virtual server and application pool.
Is my understanding correct? This will be setup on a medium server farm.

Also, can somene explain the use of Shared Services, when it is required
and if it is a good or bad idea to use it. Is it true that once this is
enabled and it can not be disabled?

I typically focus on the developer side of the world. But, I would
simply describe it as follows:

Shared Services: The centralization of My Site and/or Search onto a
dedicated portal  in a multi-portal SharePoint Portal Server

The easiest acronym to use when trying to remember the 5 SharePoint Shared Services is SNAPS:

- Search
- Notifications
- Audience Targeting
- User Profiles

Personal pages and My Sites are not SharePoint Shared Services; just ordinary SharePoint features. ...in the same manner that regular SharePoint sites are features that are not considered SharePoint Shared Services.

I've added a new shortened version of my much larger TechEd 2005 Shared Services deck called "What is Shared Services?" to the Parallelspace SharePoint resource page: http://www.parallelspace.net/sharepoint/.
