Pop Quiz: SharePoint 2013: Permissions Inheritance

Applies to the "Install and Configure SharePoint Farms" objective of Exam 70-331.

Q: A company's network administration team is installing SharePoint 2013 and needs to configure a farm to support a central location where service administrators can configure and administer user profiles with synchronization, audiences, My Sites, Social tags and notes.

Which of the following must be installed to allow service administrators the ability to configure and administer user profiles with synchronization, audiences, My Sites, Social tags and notes across multiple sites and farms?

  1. Business Continuity service
  2. User Profile service
  3. Managed metadata service
  4. Search service

Answer and explanation are below.

Answer is B. The User Profile service must be installed, and it allows service administrators the ability to configure and administer user profiles with synchronization, audiences, My Sites, Social tags and notes across the farm.

Quick Tip: When a User Profile service application is created, three databases are also created; profile, synchronization, and social tagging--giving users a dynamic personalized experience for My Sites, Team Sites, and other SharePoint sites across.
