Hello Experts,

Have used and administered SharePoint at other companies.
Need to get it going at my new post.

Have a Windows 2008 R2 Standard server available.

Have been told that at least a basic version was available with Windows servers.

How do I deploy SharePoint? Is it downloaded or is it already on the
server. Looked under Sevices  and in the executables but don't find anything.

If its Win Server 2008 Std, you wont find it unless you download and install it. The product is available in 3 versions : Foundation, Standard and Enterprise. You need to buy the license and subscription for Standard and Enterprise. Foundation you can download and  install it for free. The other 2 is also downloadable but its a trial version for 180 days with more advanced features than Foundation.
