Oct

 « »    

 

Summary and Prerequisites

In this article I will guide you through my Installation of SharePoint 2013. This installation consisted of a Single Server with using SQL Server 2012 as the database server.

Accounts

The following accounts created in Active Directory (AD) for this installation. For more information on the accounts needed for SharePoint 2013, please visit: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc263445.aspx

  • Service-spadmin – this account will be used to login to Central Administration and install SharePoint. This account was made a local administrator on the SharePoint server and was given SECURITYADMIN and DBCREATOR roles in SQL Server.
  • Service-spfarm – this is the farm account we will use when we create the farm and SharePoint_Config database
  • Service-spservices – this is an account we will use to create and configure the SharePoint services

     

Max degree of parallelism

Ensure the Max degree of parallelism is set to 1. For additional information about max degree of parallelism see, Configure the max degree of parallism Server Configuration option

 

Install SharePoint 2013 Prerequisites

 

This installation was installed using service-spadmin account which was made a local administrator on the SharePoint server and was given SECURITYADMIN and DBCREATOR roles in SQL Server.

Launch the Installation and Select “Install software prerequisites”

 

Press Next

 

Accept the License Terms and Press Next

 

Prerequisites will now install

 

Your system will need to restart after you press Finish. When you reboot and login you may find that the wizard will run again. If this is the case just let the wizard finish and press Finish again.

 

SharePoint 2013 Installation

 

Press Install SharePoint Server

 

Enter your Product Key and press Continue

 

Accept the License Terms and Press Continue

 

For this installation I will be selecting Complete. Stand-alone will install SQL Server Express and we do not want that. For File Location the defaults were left.

Press Install Now

 

Select “Run the SharePoint Products Configuration Wizard Now”

Press Close

 

SharePoint 2013 Configuration Wizard

 

Press Next

 

Press Yes

 

Select “Create a new server farm”

Press Next

 

Enter the Database server name

Enter the Farm account. In this case I am using pintolab\service-spfarm and the password

Press Next

 

Enter the passphrase, Press Next

 

Enter the port number that Central Administration will use, Press Next

 

Review your selections, Press Next

 

The wizard will configure the farm

 

Press Finish. When you press finish Central Administration will open in Internet Explore

 

 

Farm Configuration Wizard

 

When you open Central Administration for the first time, which should launch after you click Finish you will be prompted to complete the farm wizard. You will be prompted to start the Configuration Wizard.

Press Start the Wizard

 

Select create a new managed account. In this case I am using pintolab\service-spservices and enter the password.

Select the Services you want to run on your farm

Press Next

 

The wizard will configure the farm

 

 

I always skip the Creation of the Site Collection because I delete the Web Application that the wizard creates.

I would understand this better if they let you pick your components for the Web Application but they do not.

 

 

You will be redirected to the Central Administration Home Page. I have noticed on some Virtual Machines that you will get an error and you may need to refresh the page. Make sure you have enough resources
(memory and cpu), if you get an error.

At this point I usually go and delete the Web Application created by the wizard and then I create my own.

    Hi,

    Thank you for the wonderful post.
    I have a question.
    I am new to SharePoint. I have installed SharePoint Server 2013 on Windows Server 2012 with SQL server 2012 on a machine and I was thinking of using this server machine as a remote server.
    So I installed SharePoint designer 2013 on another computer and try to connect the server (the first machine). But when I enter the URL ( in your example http://SharePoint2013:22222/ ) it does not accept it..

    I do not know ow can I connect to this server.
    I would appreciate it if you could help me.

    Thanks
    Besat
