Part 2 of my series on setting up a SharePoint 2016 development or test farm on Azure using Azure PowerShell. This article focuses on the domain controller virtual machine deployment and configuration. It includes lots of details that are re-used in the subsequent parts.
In this multi-part “tutorial”, we build a single-server SharePoint Server 2016 farm inside a subnet of a Microsoft Azure virtual network. The purpose of this server will be for development and testing and as a basis for demonstrating what’s possible in SharePoint 2016. This is the introduction article.
Word Automation Services is a Service Application in SharePoint that allows software developers perform conversion (and other manipulation) of documents that are supported by Microsoft Word on the server-side. This article discusses how to set up the service in SharePoint 2013.
Where and how to find SharePoint web.config files. Includes a list of other web.config files used by SharePoint besides those for web applications.
