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
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
- 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
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.
