Demystifying SharePoint Admin Permissions

Recently I’ve gotten a couple of questions about how or where to apply administrative permissions in SharePoint. In a couple of cases someone has come to me after giving an account some permissions but it still couldn’t do what they needed. I’ve pointed people to my How to create a SharePoint 2010 admin account and stop using sp_farm blog post for some guidance. That blog post is more about the “how” and less about the “why.” So in this blog post I’m going to try to map out the “why.”

Show Tree View Navigation SharePoint 2013

Sometimes the default SharePoint 2013 Quick Launch is not enough to assist users to navigate to a SharePoint site. The tree view is an extra navigation option that provides a hierarchical view of all sites, lists and libraries in the site, including any sites below the current site level, such as the Document Center site template, display tree view navigation by default.

SharePoint 2013 doesn’t support Windows Server Core Installation

Last week I was talking to Bill Baer, (blog | Twitter) my BFF and Senior Technical Product Manager for SharePoint at Microsoft. We were chatting about fun things like muscle cars, schnitzel, and how awesome Iowa is.

For those of you that haven’t played with this yet, it’s a minimal installation of Windows Server. The idea is that the fewer things you have running on Windows the fewer resources it will take, the less you’ll have to patch, and the fewer places the bad guys will have to attack your server. Everybody wins except the bad guys.

Configuring and fine tuning SQL Server for SharePoint 2013

Hot on the heels of my award-winning, life-changing, awe-inspiring article, Set Up SQL Server 2012 as a SharePoint 2013 Database Server, comes parts 2 and 3 at SharePoint Pro Mag. If there was a story that demanded a sequel, this is it. Now, if you haven’t read part 1 yet, go ahead and get caught up. You don’t want to start in the middle of the story. You need to know who the characters are, and what our protagonist's motivations are, what the exotic locations are, what is the McGuffin, etc. The story in part 2 picks up right where part 1 ends, so you’ll need to be up to speed.
