Please advice on some technical questions about SharePoint RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Please advice on the following technical questions about SharePoint

    1-.  We want to deploy MOSS 2007 and Project Server 2007 as a standalone server on an intranet network. We have some 800 users with 100 concurrent users in the SharePoint sites and 120 Project Server users with 30 concurrent users. What are the hardware recommendations for such deployment?

     

    2.      Are there any special considerations we need to take into account when using the Site Usage report feature?

     

     

    3.      The SharePoint Database file size for our site collection is growing. Are there any maintenance best practices for SharePoint Database files?

     

    4.      We want to upgrade our MOSS 2007 and Project Server 2007 installation to SharePoint 2010. Will Project Server 2007 work on SharePoint 2010? The problem is that our MOSS 2007 installation is a 32 bit version but SharePoint 2010 has only a 64 bit version. What is the best way to migrate the server to a 64 bit server and upgrade it to SharePoint 2010?

    Thanks,

    Sonia Amin

  • In Addition to what Badal already explained, couple of quick points for you

    2. Are there any special considerations we need to take into account when using the Site Usage report feature?
    ## I believe you are talking from perspective of "Usage & Effectiveness" in other words from capacity & performance planning, correct me if i am wrong, if the perspective is from capacity & performance, then as long as you follow the "Performance and capacity Planning" recommendation as per Technet guidelines you should be good with that, still you can monitor the Usage from sharepoint perspective and report on usage

    3. The SharePoint Database file size for our site collection is growing. Are there any maintenance best practices for SharePoint Database files?
    ##  There is a whole lot of planning/Effort required for managing content DB's, i believe you should immidieatly consult any expert sharepoint architect for managing content DB

    4.  We want to upgrade our MOSS 2007 and Project Server 2007 installation to SharePoint 2010. Will Project Server 2007 work on SharePoint 2010? The problem is that our MOSS 2007 installation is a 32 bit version but SharePoint 2010 has only a 64 bit version. What is the best way to migrate the server to a 64 bit server and upgrade it to SharePoint 2010?
    ## As Badal already said Project Server 2007 is not supported, you need to have both apps on 2010 64 bit only, now the best way to migrate depends upon the lot many factors, would suggest you to go through this technet article, it will help you understand wether you should take an upgrade path or a migration approach :  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/projectserver/ee691958.aspx 

     Hope this helps, let me know if you require more information

  • Hi Sonia,

    1-.  We want to deploy MOSS 2007 and Project Server 2007 as a standalone server on an intranet network. We have some 800 users with 100 concurrent users in the SharePoint sites and 120 Project Server users with 30 concurrent users. What are the hardware recommendations for such deployment?

    For Hardware Recommendation, other then No. of Users and Concurrent Users many other factors are there like User Pattern, No. of Projects, No. of Tasks, Use of different services impacts on usage of Resources. Please go through white paper Performance and capacity Planning. Here is the link for your reference http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd823304(office.12).aspx

    2.      Are there any special considerations we need to take into account when using the Site Usage report feature?

    I am not sure for this. I think some other colleague will jump into this thread and answer you question for this.


    3.      The SharePoint Database file size for our site collection is growing. Are there any maintenance best practices for SharePoint Database files?

    Please post your question related to Moss 2007 in Moss Forum. Here is the path for you http://www.sharepointforum.com/en-US/Wiki/Installation%20MOSS%202007.aspx

     

    4.      We want to upgrade our MOSS 2007 and Project Server 2007 installation to SharePoint 2010. Will Project Server 2007 work on SharePoint 2010? The problem is that our MOSS 2007 installation is a 32 bit version but SharePoint 2010 has only a 64 bit version. What is the best way to migrate the server to a 64 bit server and upgrade it to SharePoint 2010?

    No Project Server 2007 doesn't work with SharePoint Server 2010. Refer following link for Planning and Migrating Project Server 2010 http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2317867 and http://blogs.technet.com/b/projectadministration/archive/2010/06/03/resources-for-project-server-2010-upgrade-and-migration.aspx

    Please check this thread also it may help you http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/projserv2010setup/thread/d74d4463-7777-41d3-9f60-474bc36a2aea/
