SharePoint Server 2013 Troubles
Posted on 2016-10-07
Some time ago I setup a test SP server, was a basic setup and used it to demonstrate some nice look sites and functionality to my bosses. The test server somehow drift into a production server along with all the mistakes and bugs. The server works, users are able to access what they need to, there are no work flows or anything fancy, we use it purely as a internal company info hub, new employees, general notifications and then we have our company's training manuals and quality management policies on it as well, these make up the biggest portion on SP and are also the most important.
Now it has recent been requested that Apps be added but the gremlins have shown me that this will not be allowed. I can't remember everything that was done to this system or what was added, removed, broken, fixed, etc. and I have a feeling it might take me longer to figure out than to actually just build a new SP server.
How would I go about installing a new SP server, keeping it the same name and not have to recreate all the content on the current server and ofc not drag any of the problems along with it?
