Plan site creation and maintenance (SharePoint Server 2010)


Applies to: SharePoint Server 2010

If you plan on having more than a few site collections in your Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 environment, you need to be sure that you have a plan for site creation and maintenance. Without such a plan, it is difficult to control or track when SharePoint sites are created, whether sites are still active, and when you can safely remove inactive sites. Before you deploy and make sites available to users, you need to answer questions such as:

  • Do you want to tightly control site creation or to allow many users to create sites?

  • At which level in the site hierarchy should additional sites be created?

  • How do you find and remove unused sites in your environment?

Articles and worksheets help you design and record a plan for site creation and maintenance. This will help you prepare to manage growth in your environment.
