Configuring SharePoint 2010 Resources and Provisioning to Customers

Jun 05, 2015

Before provisioning the SharePoint 2010 service to a customer, at least one SharePoint Farm and Feature Pack must be configured and assigned to the customer. When provisioning a customer, you can specify multiple, different farms with companion feature packs. However, you cannot specify multiple instances of the same farm.

  1. From the Services Manager menu bar, click Customers > Customer Services.
  2. In Customer Search, find the customer for whom you want to provision SharePoint 2010.
  3. In the services list, click SharePoint 2010 configure resources. The Service Setup page appears.
  4. In the SharePoint Farm table, click Add and select the farms and companion feature packs to allocate to the customer.
  5. Click Update to save your selections.
  6. Click Save to save the resource configuration.
  7. In the services list, click SharePoint 2010 create an instance. The SharePoint 2010 Service Instance page appears.
  8. Type an instance name that contains no spaces or special characters and click Create. The Instance Setup page appears.
  9. Under Service Plan Configuration, in Customer Plan, select the settings package to use for the site. To customize the template, click Edit and make the appropriate changes. When you are finished, click Apply Changes.
  10. Under Site Administrators, enter the user names for the users granted full administration rights to the site. These users must be members of the customer's organizational unit in Active Directory.
  11. In Site Template, select the SharePoint site template with which to create the site.
    Note: If no template is selected, no template is configured when the site is provisioned. The Site Administrator must access the SharePoint site directly to configure the site template and security groups manually before users can access the site.
  12. In Site Name, enter the host header for the site.
  13. Click Advanced Settings and perform the following actions:
    1. In Maximum Users, select the Enabled check box and enter the total number of users the customer can provision to the site.
    2. In Billing, ensure the Enabled check box is selected so the service generates charges to the customer.
    3. Click Apply Changes to save your selections.
  14. Click Provision to provision the site to the customer.
