SharePoint environments in organizations around the world have been overwhelmingly implemented with the mindset of "If we build it, they will come." This often leaves the SharePoint environment with no dedicated administrator to ensure its health. In this course, SharePoint Environment Auditing, you'll learn about some of the common issues that SharePoint environments face and how to fix them. You'll also learn the reasons why SharePoint requires certain configurations, as well as how to get your environment to the recommended state. During this course, you will see both SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2013; this is due to the nature of SharePoint environment auditing, which is generally done right before or right after an upgrade. After this course, you will feel comfortable navigating through SharePoint areas to check for health and utilizing both SharePoint central administration and PowerShell to help keep your SharePoint environment healthy in the future.

Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name's Jeff Collins, and welcome to my course, SharePoint Environment Auditing. I'm a SharePoint consultant based out of Las Vegas, and have been working with SharePoint since 2007. In this course we'll be learning more about the SharePoint environment, and ensuring that it stays healthy in your environment. This will be good for anyone in IT. As SharePoint is a product used in more than 75, 000 businesses, there's a really good chance that you'll encounter a need to work with or administer a SharePoint environment in your career. We'll be covering some of the common issues found in the SharePoint health checker and showing how to fix those via the Central Administration graphical user interface, as well as the SharePoint 2013 Management Shell. And then finally we're going to close the course out with some creative outside-of-the-box thinking, ways to be alerted on some of the SharePoint events, either in your server logs or in the SharePoint logs. By the end of this course you'll know what to look for when auditing a SharePoint environment for upgrades or health checks. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with a little bit of Windows Server troubleshooting, and it'd be nice if you had some insight into the basics of SharePoint administration so that Central Admin isn't so foreign to you, and maybe you've even ran a couple of the SharePoint PowerShell commands. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn SharePoint auditing with the SharePoint Environment Auditing course at Pluralsight.
