(H-Sphere 3.0 and up)

WARNING: This documentation covers Parallels H-Sphere versions up to 3.1. For the latest up-to-date Parallels H-Sphere documentation, please proceed to the official Parallels site.

This feature in the process of development now. For all questions and feedback, please contact us.

Starting with version 3.0, H-Sphere allows to install Windows SharePoint Services on client domains hosted on Windows platform. SharePoint Services is a team collaboration infrastructure, a free component of Windows Server 2003.


Getting Ready

System Requirements:

  • Windows Server 2003 added to H-Sphere cluster

Implementation of Resources

Each SharePoint user added by customer who enabled SharePoint on his domain will require a Windows license. The same relates to FTP subaccounts. To decrease number of licenses and this way to essentially minimize Windows hosting expenditures, Windows FTP subaccount and MS SharePoint user were made child resources of Windows System account parent resource. Now, if a customer enables an FTP subaccount for his user and later decides to make this same user a part of SharePoint Services, this won't require an additional Windows license. And vice versa. In other words, SharePoint access and FTP subaccount for the same user will be obtained with only one Windows license.

When your client creates an FTP subaccount or provides SharePoint access for his user, H-Sphere creates a system account with component FTP subaccount and MS SharePoint user. If later this same client desides that both these services are not needed anymore and disables them, you either need to check that he disables System account as well or do it yourself. For this, enter the client control panel, Click FTP/User Account -> FTP User and remove the needed in the System account section.


Providing Services

Like all other services in H-Sphere, SharePoint is provided via plans. Include MS Sharepoint and MS Sharepoint User in the Web Services section and then determine prices for these resources:

Important! Besides this, checking ASP.NET in the Web Services section and MSSQL in the Other section is a must.

Clients who sign up with such plans will be able to turn on SharePoint on their domains. Please also read our recommendations on managing SharePoint users to prevent your clients from losing important data.
