Two new Test Lab Guides (TLG) have been released this week for configuring the new Social features and Forms-based authentication in SharePoint Server 2013 Preview. TLGs are step-by-step walkthroughs of the configuration needed to implement a particular solution, and they are terrific resources for quickly building out your lab environment to evaluate and study new product features. You can download these latest TLGs at the following link locations:
Additional SharePoint Server 2013 Preview Learning Resources
These new TLGs build upon the original TLG for Configuring SharePoint Server 2013 Preview in a Three-Tier Farm, so you'll need to start with this TLG to build your base configuration. This base TLG is available here along with several other learning resources to get started quickly with SharePoint Server 2013 Preview.
Ready for more Test Lab Guides?
The TLG team has recently setup a new Wiki site that collects together all of the TLGs for each Microsoft solution area. You can find the TLG Wiki site at: http://www.microsoft.com/testlabguides.
