For the past couple of days I have been setting up a brand new SharePoint Server 2010 running on top of Server 2008. This installation is intended to be used with Active Directory and will be used as an intranet for our organization. Everything installed correctly and the SharePoint install itself went fine.
I'm at the point now where I am running the SharePoint 2010 Products Configuration Wizard. The thing that is bothering me is that the configuration wizard runs without me needing to enter any information (Service Accounts, Database Server, Admin Site Port, etc). Should I have done something different during the installation to be able to enter this information? Or is it all just handled by the Central Administration Site when using AD? I've read a couple of places that mentioned opening the Management Console and making a new SP Configuration Database, but this was always predicated by the fact that it was needed to use local accounts with the SharePoint deployment.
Can anyone point me in the right direction?
Sounds like you have done a stand alone installation when you installed the bits. This changes everything. You should always do a Server Farm install, even if you are putting everything on a single machine. The only way to repair this is to uninstall SharePoint and install it using the Server Farm installation.

I am installing SharePoint 2010 single farm on my 64bit Win7 Ultimate development machine. After a lot of pain and apparent success of the installation, I am not finding the "Farm Configuration Wizard" on the "Configuration Wizards" page of Central Administration. Looking for reasons why and things to check to make it show up.
I am running on a new dev setup for SharePoint 2010 and trying to setup some External Content types. I think that I have setup BCS correctly (since I see it running in the central administration). When I go into SharePoint designer 2010 and try to setup a new External Content Type, I get the following error: There is no Business Connectivity Service associated with the current web context. Am I missing something with the configuration? Why am I not able to setup a new External Content Type to point to my existing SQL database?
