The Microsoft® SharePoint® Administration Toolkit contains functionality to help administrate and manage Microsoft® Office SharePoint® Server 2007 and Windows® SharePoint® Services version 3.0.
The Microsoft SharePoint Administration Toolkit contains functionality to help manage Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Windows SharePoint Services version 3.0. This toolkit contains the ability to perform bulk operations on site collections, an Stsadm operation to update alert e-mails after the URL for a Web application has been changed, and a User Profile Replication Engine tool. For new functionality, see New Features. New Features:
  • One new tool added: User Profile Replication Engine (Office SharePoint Server 2007 only).
  • The MSI is customizable and selectable, meaning that a user can control which tools are installed or uninstalled and when the User Profile Replication Engine tool is installed, a custom installation folder can be selected. The MSI also supports the /quiet switch for quiet installation.
  • For x86 and x64 platforms, installation is automatic. There is no need to manually run Psconfig and Stsadm commands after running Setup, as with the April 2008 release.
See the following documentation on TechNet regarding use of the toolkit:
To install this download:
  1. Download the MicrosoftSharepointAdministrationToolkit.exe file by clicking the Download button, and then save the file to your hard disk.
  2. Double-click the MicrosoftSharepointAdministrationToolkit.exe program file on your hard disk to start the Setup program.
  3. After the License Terms for Microsoft Agreement is accepted, click Next.
  4. Select which tool or tools are to be installed by choosing the appropriate icon and select the top-level feature ("This feature will be installed on local hard drive").
  5. If the Batch Site Manager is being installed, the following warning message is displayed: "The following services may have to be started or reset during Batch Site Manager installation: Internet Information Services, SharePoint Administration Service, and SharePoint Timer Service". Choose Yes to restart the services if required and continue with Setup or No to exit Setup.
  6. If Replication Engine is being installed, the default folder location is %Program Files%\Microsoft\Replication Engine. Click Browse to change the location of this folder. After a location is selected, click OK, and then click Next.
  7. If the Batch Site Manager is being installed, a VBScript is called and runs PSConfig and Stsadm commands before Setup is finished. This process does take several seconds to complete. If the commands do not execute properly, the following error message is displayed:"Failed to register Batch Site Manager". Note: Any failed error that occurs during installation will cause Setup to exit. If you do receive an error message, you can manually install the Batch Site Manager tool by manually typing the following two commands (without quotations):
    • "psconfig -cmd applicationcontent -install"
    • "stsadm -o installfeature -name BatchSiteManagerLinks"
  8. To complete installation, click Finish.

  1. From Add or Remove Programs, or Programs and Features click Change to remove the Administration Toolkit for Microsoft SharePoint Products and Technologies. Note: The same dialog box is displayed if you run the MicrosoftSharepointAdministrationToolkit.exe file instead of using Add or Remove Programs or Programs and Features.
  2. If you plan to remove the Batch Site Manager tool, you will receive the following message: "This will only remove related files from this machine. Do you want to remove the Batch Site Manager link from Central Administration as well?" If you choose No the Batch Site Manager tool still available should you have it installed on another computer. However, if you choose Yes, the Batch Site Manager files are completely removed from the farm.
