Along with the release of Windows Vista and the revamped suite of Office 2007 products, Microsoft has released a line-up of new servers. Exchange Server 2007 and SharePoint® Server 2007 are two of the major players, but there are also seven additional Office 2007 Servers of which you may not be aware that can add productivity to your environment in a variety of ways.
Each of the seven servers is unique and requires distinct assessment to determine if your company can benefit from any given server. This book provides you with the knowledge you need to determine the use of each server, the prerequisites and procedures of server installation, the post-installation configuration options so you can set it and forget it, and finally, a look at the client-side applications that interact with the new servers.

- Install each of the seven Office 2007 Servers, including both standalone and server farm installation.
- Handle post-installation configuration options for each of the seven Office 2007 Servers.
