I have decided to spend some time on installing and configuring SharePoint 2010 Foundation server in my company. Idea is to use it a central information store for phone numbers, mail addresses, aliases that we all use and short inter-departmental announcements and informational messages.
Test deployment will be done on our test server that has Hyper-V role installed and later on it will be migrated to production server. I will be using SQL Express database since there will be small amount of data in it. Do not expect this to be done in week or so, since I have other things to do too. 🙂
I will be customizing portal pages and sites and I will try to report on any curiosities and hick-ups that I come upon. And of course, you will read about solutions and workarounds that I implement.
Now, on to installing underlying OS (Windows Server 2008 R2 x64) and SharePoint prerequisites and binaries.
