This section describes advanced concepts and more complex configurations that generally apply to experienced Microsoft Provisioning System (MPS) users. However, new MPS users should also review these topics for a better understanding of MPS, especially the minimal service provisioning configuration.
Choose the appropriate link for the advanced topic you want to review:
- See Minimal
Service Provisioning Environment to evaluate the components of
the quick-start service provisioning configuration, which utilizes
MPS to provision Hosted Exchange and Hosted Windows SharePoint
- See Fault
Tolerant Service Provisioning Environment to evaluate the
components of the enhanced service provisioning configuration,
which utilizes MPS to provision Hosted Exchange, Hosted Mobile
Messaging, DNS, Customer Directory Integration (CDI), and Hosted
Windows SharePoint Services. The advanced service provisioning
configuration also includes a high availability MPS configuration
with fault tolerance and load balancing.
- See Fault
Tolerant Service Provisioning Environment to implement a fault
tolerant and load-balanced MPS configuration for high
Note: Only attempt to utilize the fault tolerant and load-balanced configuration if you are an experienced MPS user and you are implementing the advanced MPS configuration.
- See MPS
Deployment Tool to understand more about the MPS Deployment
Tool and the background installation and configuration processes
that it implements.
- See Microsoft Provisioning
System Security to learn about the advanced security features
of MPS and how to plan for them.
