I have just received an e-mail message from Microsoft which says that Infrastructure Planning and Design Guide for Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 is available for download.
Follow the link and you will download a ZIP archive which contains:
- SharePoint 2010 Diagrams – Visio File
- the SharePoint 2010 IDP presentation – it describes the main steps of the SharePoint 2010 infrastructure and design guide.
- a detailed document with instructions.
At the end of the document you will find the Appendix D which describes how you can map the IDP guide on the Microsoft Operations Framework (MOF) 4.0 best practices.
I think this guide should be a must read!
