Key Settings of a Good Build
In this chapter, we continue building out our base troubleshooting knowledge by learning about key settings of a good build. For the same reasons that a solid understanding of a least-privileged build helps you understand where to look at permissions when certain things are going wrong, a firm foundation on how the farm is constructed and being able to standardize that process helps you troubleshoot and remove inconsistencies. By standardizing the build process, we are setting the farm up for expected conditions and this makes it easier to identify unexpected behaviors and helps in troubleshooting those behaviors by being able to insure least privileging and key settings. This way, we can be certain that if something isn’t the way it is supposed to be, that it wasn’t due to an improper build.
