Notes Chapter 3 – Sharepoint 2010 Unleashed

Installing a Simple SharePoint Server 2010 Farm


A server that will be running all SharePoint roles, including the database role, should have the following minimum requirements:

  • 64-bit four core (minimum) processor
  • 8GB to 16GB of RAM (8GB for evaluation or testing, 16GB for production)
  • 80GB of drive space for the system drive (plus twice as much space as the amount of RAM in the system

. SQL admin account—SQL Server should be administered with a separate set of credentials than those used for SharePoint.

. Installation account—Used to install the SharePoint binaries on the SharePoint role servers. This account requires local admin rights on each SharePoint server and DBCreator and SecurityAdmin rights on the SQL Server.

. SharePoint farm admins—Used to administer the farm; should be configured. Typically, one account for each physical admin is created.

. Application pool identity accounts—Needed for each app pool. Generally speaking, it is good practice to have a separate app pool for each application. These accounts must be separate from farm admin accounts.

. Default content access account—The default account used to crawl SharePoint and other content. It must not be a farm admin, or the search results will include unpublished data in the results. There may be additional content access accounts created for other data sources that are crawled as well.

. Search service application account—This account is used to run the search service application.

The high-level steps involved are as follows:

. Install Windows Server 2008 R2 with the defaults.

. Activate the server.

. Install any server-specific tools required.

. Patch and update the operating system.

. Add the server to an Active Directory domain.

. Copy the SharePoint 2010 binaries local to the server (recommended).

. Copy the SQL Server 2008 R2 binaries local (if installing the database role).

Create multiple service accounts for use by SharePoint. Do not use a single service account, and do not use any domain admin accounts for SharePoint.

Patch the operating system with all critical updates before installing SharePoint.

Patch SharePoint 2010 with all the latest service packs and cumulative update patches before running the configuration wizard.
