Can you please advise a model to setup a Dev machine when several developers works on the same Sharepoint project? The Source code part is easy to fix as we use VS2010 and a Source Control server, but what about the part specific to Sharepoint? Can you please
advise which of the model below is better?
Model 1 (self contained): Each Dev machine is a copy of the Production Sharepoint Server. It contains a single server farm setup, local SQL Server, Visual Studio 2010. The problem here is the content DB is also local, the synchronization of the Content DB
must be done manually between several dev machines.
Model 2 (multi-servers Farm): Each Dev machine has a Sharepoint Server which joins a farm. The Sharepoint Server on this Dev machine just has the Web Server role. All the resource heavy roles (SQL Server, Application server, Search, etc.) are installed and
administered from a "common" Sharepoint server.
Thanks in advance for any help.
