Screencasts / SharePoint 2010 / Search Server 2010 Express

SharePoint Foundation 2010 is the free version of SharePoint Server 2010, and a lot of companies find it a suitable choice for their intranet. As a free version, it has a serious limitation – you get only basic search capabilities; no search suggestions, best bets, quick filtering, search in PDF files etc.

And here comes a big surprise - Search Server 2010 Express. Judging by its name, you would never guess that it is the good old SharePoint Foundation 2010, with Enterprise Search Capabilities. Sometimes, you might see it described as SharePoint Foundation on steroids. You can get a detailed product features comparison at the Search Server Express page.

As you are probably aware, the heart of SharePoint is the database server – Microsoft SQL server. Most of the SharePoint installation instructions which you will find on the Internet, comfortably skip the installation and configuration of SQL server. In this step-by-step Screencast, we start with the installation and configuration of SQL Server 2008 R2 Express with SP1. The Express version is also the free version of SQL Server 2008 R2, so you get the bottom line for one of the best Intranet products – SharePoint 2010.
