Building a SharePoint 2016 Home Lab
Building a SharePoint 2016 Home Lab

This book is a step-by-step guide to building your own SharePoint farm in a home lab setting. Learn how to build a windows domain and then join servers into the domain in order to create your own testing and learning environment. After you get the domain stood up, where you go from there is up to you.  This book will help you learn how to spin up SharePoint in a least privileged fashion.  This isn’t strictly a SharePoint book, though. For example, if you’re not a SharePoint professional and are just looking to create a working windows domain for other purposes; the home-lab domain that you’ll create will work great for Exam preparation for non-SharePoint purposes.  You could even use it for learning how to install Exchange Server.  After all, it’s your Home Lab domain. In this book you will build your home-lab domain and you’ll have a great place for learning how to administer SharePoint and develop SharePoint Apps.  Here are just some of the tasks you’ll complete in easy to follow exercises:

  • Create a windows domain and a certificate authority, so that you can run SharePoint on SSL
  • Join servers to the domain and configure other technology on the member servers as needed
  • Install SQL Server, and correctly partition the server in accordance with best practices
  • Install and configure a SharePoint farm
  • Spin up Host Named Site Collections (HNSC’s)
  • Install and configure Visual Studio

Who This Book Is For:
This book is suitable for both developers and administrators. No technical knowledge is assumed beyond a general familiarity with computers and computing terminology. The resulting domain will be suitable for both IT and developer testing needs.

Troubleshooting SharePoint
Troubleshooting SharePoint

Utilize a treasure trove of free SharePoint troubleshooting tools and receive insightful guidance about the types of SharePoint issues that can be discovered through their use. Chapters in this book contrast solid and least privileged builds in order to help you understand the types of issues that are raised when farms are not built the least privileged way.

Because SharePoint errors often present themselves one way, when an issue is actually something entirely different, the process of finding the root cause can feel like going down a rabbit hole. Hands-on exercises get you comfortable with logs so you can efficiently and effectively “explore the rabbit hole.”

Troubleshooting SharePoint also demonstrates how to identify components and settings that enter an environment where access has been restricted. The author shares his proven methods for researching an issue based on what appears in the logs, with the understanding that often it is not as simple as asking a question, but how you ask it that leads to the right answer.
