Single Answer, Multiple Choice
You have configured Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007 in your organization. You are in the process of performing periodic maintenance of SharePoint servers in the MOSS 2007 environment. You want to protect against data loss during the maintenance process.
What should you do?
- Scan the SharePoint site for broken links.
- Instruct users to save their data.
- Perform a complete backup of SharePoint servers.
- Disconnect all the existing user connections from the SharePoint server.
C. Perform a complete backup of SharePoint servers.
To protect again data loss during the maintenance process, you should perform a complete backup of SharePoint servers. A backup ensures that you can restore the data in the event of data loss. Restoring a backup will recover the data. To perform a backup, you can select the Perform a backup option under the Backup and Restore section in the Central Administration Operations page.
Scanning the SharePoint site for broken links will not prevent data loss. The Scan for Broken Links feature in MOSS 2007 scans the SharePoint site for changed or deleted links in the site. If users report that there are broken links in the directory, you should compile the list of broken links by using the Scan for Broken Links option from the Site Actions menu.
Instructing users to save data is not a practical solution and will not necessarily prevent data loss during server maintenance.
Disconnecting all the existing user connections from the SharePoint server will not help you prevent data loss.
