Limits of MOSS 2007

I’ve been doing some research and testing on MOSS 2007 in prepartion for our new (soon to be annouced) Records Management framework for MOSS 2007 and as with virtually every application, there are limitations as to what it can do, Microsoft Office SharePoint Server is no exception.  However, I think you will see these limitations are such that they will have little impact in virtually any enviroment.

  3. Hey shwetha,

    this will depend a lot on the tin platform (hardware) you have, how many index servers on the farm, etc, etc. I would suggest you take a look here I have put together some links to the tool itself.
