The Index server, is it a single point of failure? One of the most common concerns is that of the index server role (Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007) as a single point of failure in a server farm; however, there is a misconception that you are limited to a single index server per server farm, while the index server role is limited within a server farm, the limitation is strictly association with a Shared Services Provider.

One of my favorite components to any conference is ATE (Ask the Experts), which based on the overall response recently at the Microsoft Office SharePoint Server Conference 2008, is both popular and extremely valuable in providing an opportunity for open discourse and topic-based discussion.
