SPS2010 Server Farm installation without DC/AD

  • SPS2010 Server Farm installation without DC/AD kamleshrao

    My HOST PC is Windows 7 and using VirtualBox I have setup a Virtual Machine having:

    • Windows 2008 Server R2 Enterprise (Standalone - there is no AD/DC)
    • SQL Server 2008 R2 Express
    • SharePoint 2010 Server Enterprise Trial

    Now, I want to install SPS 2010 and make use of the existing SQL Server 2008 R2 Express. During the Installation, I selected Server Farm and then Complete option. So far, so good.

    Next, it started PSConfig Wizard and asked me to specify the DB details. I provided the local Server Name and gave a New DB name. Now, it throws error saying that it needs a User ID in Domain\UserID format. I tried giving my LocalServerName\UserID, but it doesn't accept. I even tried "sa" User ID, but that too didn't work.

    Questions: 1) I don't have AD/DC in this setup. Can I setup a Farm in such environment? 2) The StandAlone option creates its own SQL Server Express Instance. I want to avoid this and reuse the "already" installed SQL Server 208 R2 Express.

    Are the above tasks "Mission Impossible"? or is there any alternative to do such a setup? This task is purely for learning purpose and not for a Production use.

  • SharePoint 2010 appears to continue SharePoint 2007's tradition of automatically creating horribly named SQL Databases. Like many companies we have multiple farms and developer workstations connecting to a central database server. To make sure things don't become messy and difficult to manage, we prefer to use database names such as: DEV_WS004_SharePoint_AdminContent DEV_WS004_User Profile... multiple SharePoint 2010 farms connected to a single database server then you can see which databases belong to a farm on the following Central Administration screen: http://[Your CA Server]/_admin
