  • Introduce a new WFE in the existing SharePoint 2007 Farm? Karthikeyan

    We would like to introduce a new WFE in the existing SharePoint 2007 Farm, due to the business requirement, which already has 8WFEs and separate servers for Index, Query & admin. what would be the best approach to follow ?

  • Can you tell a bit more about the farm setup? Especially regarding SQL server.

    A rule of thumb is that you should not have more than 5 WFE per SQL server instance. Going beyond that the WFE will put too much stress on the SQL server, and actually degrade performance. I also seem to remember something about a support limit of 8 WFE, but im not certain.

    EDIT: ok i found the soft limit for WFE on TechNet:

    Web server/database server ratio: 8* Web servers per database server The scale out factor is dependent upon the mix of operations.

  • these documents should replace 2 of the existing documents from the original 5 - so that only 5 documents are ever displayed to Martin or John. John must not be able to see the original 2 documents that have been replaced. A small amount of luck is that an administrator will specify which new document should ‘replace’ an existing document from the originals. Over time I would be required to add more documents and and users, providing the same functionality of ‘replacing’ certain documents for certain users. How would you do this? My first thought was creating roles and configuring the roles

  • have 200 sites using that template. Now the customer realize that they need two new content types on that library. Oh, and they will need those content types on the existing sites as well. I might have misunderstod something about content types or just misconfigured the library, but so far the only way I have been able to add those new content types on existing sites have been through a powershell script. Is this just a feature in SharePoint 2007 that I'll have to get used to, or have I missed a crucial point?
