The Microsoft SharePoint Administration Toolkit contains functionality to help manage Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Windows SharePoint Services version 3.0. This toolkit contains the ability to perform bulk operations on site collections, an Stsadm operation to update alert e-mails after the URL for a Web application has been changed, and a User Profile Replication Engine tool. For new functionality, see New Features.
- One new tool added: User Profile Replication Engine (Office SharePoint Server 2007 only).
- The MSI is customizable and selectable, meaning that a user can control which tools are installed or uninstalled and when the User Profile Replication Engine tool is installed, a custom installation folder can be selected. The MSI also supports the /quiet switch for quiet installation.
- For x86 and x64 platforms, installation is automatic. There is no need to manually run Psconfig and Stsadm commands after running Setup, as with the April 2008 release.
See the following documentation on TechNet regarding use of the toolkit:
- Information for farm administrators about Batch Site Manager, User Profile Replication Engine, and the updatealert operation for the Stsadm command-line tool can be found in SharePoint Administration Toolkit (Office SharePoint Server) and SharePoint Administration Toolkit (Windows SharePoint Services).
