Course 20331B: Core Solutions of Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013

About this Course

This course will provide you with the knowledge and skills to configure and manage a Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013 environment. This course will teach you how to configure SharePoint Server 2013, as well as provide guidelines, best practices, and considerations that will help you optimize your SharePoint server deployment.

This is the first in a sequence of two courses for IT Professionals and will align with the first exam in the SharePoint Server 2013 IT Pro certification.

Audience Profile

The course is targeted at experienced IT Professionals interested in learning how to install, configure, deploy and manage SharePoint Server 2013 installations in either the data center or the cloud.

Students typically have more than four years of hands-on experience* planning and maintaining SharePoint and other core technologies upon which SharePoint depends, including Windows Server 2008 R2 or later, Internet Information Services (IIS), SQL Server 2008 R2 or later, Active Directory,  and networking infrastructure services.

The minimally qualified candidate typically:

  • Is an IT professional who plans, implements, and maintains a multi-server deployment of SharePoint Server 2013.
  • Has a working knowledge of, and preferably hands-on experience, with SharePoint Online.
  • Has broad familiarity with SharePoint workloads.
  • Have experience with business continuity management, including data backup, restoration, and high availability.
  • Has experience with authentication and security technologies
  • Has experience with Windows PowerShell.
  • Hands-on experience or job experience is considered a solutions-based role where the candidate works within the solutions space covered by SharePoint, working on multiple solutions in the SharePoint space that includes document management, content management, and search.

The secondary audience for this course are Business Application Administrators (BAAs) who are engaged in the administering line-of-business (LOB) projects in conjunction with internal business customers would benefit from an understanding of how to manage SharePoint Server 2013.

Administrators who are entirely new to SharePoint will gain some benefit from the course, but it is recommended that they familiarize themselves with the basic concepts of the SharePoint platform before attending.

Hidden Taxonomy List
ref - http://sharepointtrac.wordpress.com/2013/10/29/taxonomy-hidden-list/

  1. TaxonomyHiddenList is the hidden list on root web. This list can be viewed by directly navigating the URL http://MyWeb.com/Lists/TaxonomyHiddenList
  2. This list contains all the terms and keyword used for the site collection
  3. This list is used for caching the taxonomy terms. SharePoint uses this list so that no need to query the managed meta data service all the time
  4. When we use the Taxonomy term, an item is get created in this list. The id of this item is the WSSID. This WSSID is of type Counter and can be used for querying purpose
  5. For the taxonomy terms which are still not used in the site, we will not find the item for it in this list. So no WSSID for that term.
