Groups – Farm
Whatever you do, do not remove the farm account from the Farm Administrators group. It must
be a member of the Central Administration site in order for Central Administration to work. For
more information about managing farm administrators and permissions in general, see Chapter 12.

This settings page is useful if you have enabled Directory Management Services as part of the
incoming email settings. (This service is not required for enabling incoming email, and it requires
Exchange 2003 or higher somewhere on your network in order to function properly.) If you enable
DMS, it will create an email contact item in an OU you specify for your incoming email-enabled
lists and libraries, as well as make it possible to have distribution lists for groups. To keep groups
from getting out of control, those distribution lists can be set for approval, requiring a farm
administrator to approve the new distribution list before the object is added to Active Directory.

In the Manage Web Applications page, there is a User Policy button, which (if the site is
configured for it) will pop up a form box for you to see what user policies are applied to a selected web
application, as well as add, delete, or edit a user policy (there are buttons for the permission and
anonymous policy on the page as well).
This setting does about the same thing, except it takes you to the page shown in Figure 11.63,
reminiscent of the Policy For Web Application page from the previous version of SharePoint.
Also in the Manage Web Applications page are buttons for Permission Policy and Anonymous
Policy; here they are listed in addition to the Quick Launch bar on the left.
