SharePoint Server Farm Maintenance

I’ve just seen an interesting posting on Chandima’s blog describing some basic maintenance tasks that need to be performed – a good "Task List" for MOSS Health checks. It covers such topics as:

  • Deployment and configuration documentation
  • Patch Maintenance
  • Administration and the Farm Admin account
  • Update Preparation & Deployment
  • Backups and DR Testing
  • Ongoing Maintenance process (Who’s job is it to clean out the dead information?)
  • Maintenance and Change windows
  • Deployment Processes and Guidelines for Devs

Worth checking out especially if your organisation either uses a MOSS solution or is a MOSS Consultancy.


About Brad Saide

I'm a SharePoint consultant. I'm also slowly going bald, seem to have a permanent spare tyre around my waist and enjoy socialising with friends over a beer or 10. The last 2 may possibly be related. Started working with SharePoint when the first version was in limited beta release (participated in the Technology Adoption Program while at Woolworths) and have been committed to the adoption of the technology as a business enabler ever since.
