MOSS 2007 Beta installation instructions

  Asked By: Srikant    Date: Sep 22    Category: MOSS    Views: 971

In case you have trouble finding this on OfficeOnline/TechNet:



Deploy Office SharePoint Server 2007 (Beta 2) on a single server

Note This content is preliminary content for a preliminary software release. It might be incomplete and is subject to change.

You can publish a SharePoint site in just minutes by deploying Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (Beta 2) on a single server computer. A single-server configuration is useful if you want to evaluate Office SharePoint Server 2007 features and capabilities, such as collaboration, document management, and search, but you do not want to spend a lot of time installing components and configuring settings. A single-server configuration is also useful if you are deploying a small number of Web sites and you want to minimize administrative overhead. When you deploy Office SharePoint Server 2007 on a single server using the default settings, the Setup program automatically installs Microsoft® SQL Server 2005 Express Edition and uses it to create the configuration database and content database for your SharePoint site. In addition, the Setup program creates a Shared Services Provider (SSP), installs SharePoint Central Administration, and creates your first SharePoint site.

Hardware and software requirements

Before you install and configure Office SharePoint Server 2007, make sure your server computer has the recommended hardware and software. For a single-server deployment, your server computer must meet the following hardware and software requirements:

Hardware requirements

A dual-processor computer with processor clock speeds of 2.5 gigahertz (GHz) or higher. A minimum of 1 gigabyte (GB) of RAM; however, 2 GB of RAM is recommended for improved performance.

Software requirements

A computer running Microsoft Windows Server 2003 (Standard, Enterprise, Datacenter, or Web Edition) with Service Pack 1 (SP1), Microsoft Windows Workflow Foundation Runtime Components Beta 2.2 (Build 3807.7), and Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0. Instructions for installing the Windows Workflow Foundation Beta 2.2 and Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 are provided later in this section. For more information about Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0, see the Microsoft .NET Framework Developer Center. For more information about the Windows Workflow Foundation Runtime Components Beta 2.2, see the Windows Workflow Foundation Web site.

The computer must be configured as a Web server running Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) in IIS 6.0 worker process isolation mode. Instructions for installing and configuring IIS are provided later in this section. For more information about IIS, see the Windows Server 2003 documentation.

The computer must be using the NTFS file system. Windows Server 2003 includes a conversion utility (Convert.exe) that you can use to convert an existing file allocation table (FAT) volume to NTFS without losing data.

In addition to these requirements, you must install Office SharePoint Server 2007 on a clean installation of Windows Server 2003. If you uninstall a previous version of Office SharePoint Server 2007, and then install Office SharePoint Server 2007 (Beta 2), Setup might fail to create the configuration database and the installation process will fail.

Also, you must read the Known Issues/Readme documentation for Beta 2 before you install Office SharePoint Server 2007 on a domain controller. Installing Office SharePoint Server 2007 on a domain controller requires additional configuration steps that are not discussed in this document.

Note You cannot install Office SharePoint Server 2007 on a single server that is running Windows Server 2003, Web Edition.

Security account requirements

To install Office SharePoint Server 2007 on a stand-alone server, you must be a member of the Administrators group on the computer, or you must be a member of a group that is a member of the Administrators group on the computer, such as the Domain Admins group.

Configure the server as a Web server

Before you install and configure Office SharePoint Server 2007, you must install and configure the required software on each of your front-end servers. This includes installing and configuring IIS so your front-end servers act as Web servers, installing Windows .NET Framework 2.0, enabling ASP.NET 2.0, and installing Windows Workflow Foundation Runtime Components Beta 2.2 (build 3807.7).

Deploy Office SharePoint Server 2007 (Beta 2) in a server farm environment

Note This content is preliminary content for a preliminary software release. It might be incomplete and is subject to change.

You can deploy Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (Beta 2) in a server farm environment, which is useful if you are hosting a large number of sites, you want the best possible performance, or you want the scalability of a multi-tier topology. A server farm typically consists of one or two back-end database servers and one or more front-end servers that provide Web services and Office SharePoint Server 2007 services, such as search, Excel Services, and indexing. By deploying Office SharePoint Server 2007 in a server farm environment, you can publish an optimized SharePoint site with a dedicated Microsoft® SQL Server database in just minutes.

Hardware and software requirements

Before you install and configure Office SharePoint Server 2007, make sure your servers have the recommended hardware and software. To deploy a server farm, you need at least one server computer acting as a Web server and an application server, and one server computer acting as a database server. The server computers must meet the following requirements:

Hardware requirements

Front-end Web server and application server computers: a dual-processor computer with processor clock speeds of 2.5-gigahertz (GHz) or higher and a minimum of 2 gigabytes (GB) of RAM.

Back-end database server: a dual-processor computer with processor clock speeds of 2.0 GHz or higher and a minimum of 2 GB of RAM.

Software requirements

The Web server and application server computers must be running Microsoft Windows® Server 2003 (Standard, Enterprise, Datacenter, or Web Edition) with Service Pack 1 (SP1), and have Microsoft Windows Workflow Foundation Runtime Components Beta 2.2 (Build 3807.7) and Microsoft® .NET Framework 2.0 installed. Instructions for installing Windows Workflow Foundation Runtime Components Beta 2.2 and Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 are provided later in this section. For more information about Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0, see the Microsoft .NET Framework Developer Center. For more information about Windows Workflow Foundation Runtime Components Beta 2.2, see the Windows Workflow Foundation Web site.

The Web server and application server computers must be configured as Web servers running Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) in IIS 6.0 worker process isolation mode. For more information about IIS, see the Windows Server 2003 documentation.

Each of the computers must be using the NTFS file system. Windows Server 2003 includes a conversion utility (Convert.exe) that you can use to convert an existing file allocation table (FAT) volume to NTFS without losing data.

The back-end database server computer must be running Microsoft SQL Server 2005 or Microsoft SQL Server 2000 with Service Pack 3 (SP3) or later. It is assumed that you have installed and configured the database program on the back-end server computer. You do not need to set up or create specific databases for Office SharePoint Server 2007. The Office SharePoint Server 2007 Setup program will create the necessary databases when you install and configure Office SharePoint Server 2007.

In addition to these requirements, if you are using SQL Server 2005, you need to configure surface area settings. Use the following procedure to do this.

Configure surface area settings in SQL Server 2005

1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Microsoft SQL Server 2005, point to Configuration Tools, and then click SQL Server Surface Area Configuration.

2. In the SQL Server Surface Area Configuration dialog box, click Surface Area Configuration for Services and Connections.

3. In the tree, open your instance of SQL Server, open Database Engine, and then click Remote Connections.

4. Click Local and Remote Connections, click Using both TCP/IP and named pipes, and then click OK.

Also, you must install Office SharePoint Server 2007 on a clean installation  of Windows Server 2003. If you uninstall a previous version of Office SharePoint Server 2007, and then install Office SharePoint Server 2007 (Beta 2), Setup might fail to create the configuration database and the installation will fail.

Note It is recommended that you read the Known Issues/Readme documentation for Beta 2 before you install Office SharePoint Server 2007 on a domain controller. Installing Office SharePoint Server 2007 on a domain controller requires additional configuration steps that are not discussed in this document.

Suggested topologies

Server farm environments can encompass a wide range of topologies and can include as little as two servers or as many as a dozen servers.

A small server farm typically consists of a back-end database server running either Microsoft SQL Server 2005 or Microsoft SQL Server 2000 with SP3 or later, and one or two front-end servers running IIS and Office SharePoint Server 2007. In this configuration the front-end servers are configured as Web servers and application servers. The Web server role provides Web services to clients requesting Web pages; the application server role provides Office SharePoint Server 2007 services such as search, indexing, and Excel Services.

A medium server farm typically consists of a back-end database server, an application server running Office SharePoint Server 2007, and one or two front-end Web servers running Office SharePoint Server 2007 and IIS. In this configuration, the application server provides indexing services and Excel Services, and the front-end Web servers provide Web services and search services.

A large server farm typically consists of two clustered back-end database servers, several load balanced front-end Web servers running IIS and Office SharePoint Server 2007, and two or more application servers running Office SharePoint Server 2007. In this configuration, each of the application servers provide specific Office SharePoint Server 2007 services, such as search, indexing, or Excel Services, and the front-end Web servers provide Web services.

Note All of the front-end servers in your server farm must have the same SharePoint products and technologies installed. For example, if all of the servers in your server farm are running Office SharePoint Server 2007, you cannot add to your farm a server that is running only Microsoft Office Project Server 2007. To run Office Project Server 2007 and Office SharePoint Server 2007 in your server farm you need to install Office Project Server 2007 and Office SharePoint Server 2007 on each of your front-end servers. To enhance the security of your farm and reduce the surface area of attack, you can disable services on particular servers after you install your SharePoint

Security account requirements

To deploy Office SharePoint Server 2007 in a server farm environment you will need the following security accounts:

A user account that you can use to install Office SharePoint Server 2007 and run the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard. This account must be:

· A domain user account.

· A member of the Administrators group on each of your front-end servers.

· A member of the SQL Server Logins security group, which grants login access to your SQL Server database.

· A member of the SQL Server Database Creator server role, which grants permission to create and alter datbases.

· A member of the SQL Server Security Administrators server role, which grants permission to manage server logins.

A unique domain user account that you can specify as the Office SharePoint Server 2007 service account. This user account is used to access your SharePoint configuration database. It also acts as the application pool identity for the SharePoint Central Administration application pool and it is the account under which the Windows SharePoint Services Timer service runs. The SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard adds this account to the SQL Server Logins security group and the SQL Server Database Creator server role and the SQL Server Security Administrators server role. It is recommended that you follow the principle of least privilege and do not make this user account a member of any particular security group on your front-end servers or your back-end servers.

A unique domain user account under which the Office SharePoint Server Search service can run. The user account must be a member of the Administrators group on the computer that is running the Search service. If you want to use the principle of least privilege and select a unique user account that does not have administrative rights on your front-end servers or on your back-end database servers, see the Known Issues/Readme for Office SharePoint Server 2007 Beta 2.

A unique domain user account that is used to crawl content on your sites and create indexes. It is recommended that you follow the principle of least privilege and select a unique user account that cannot modify content and does not have administrative rights on your front-end servers or on your back-end database servers. This user account will be added to the Web application Full Read policy for your farm.

A unique domain user account that acts as the application pool identity for your site collection's Web application. It is recommended that you follow the principle of least privilege and select a unique user account that does not have administrative rights on your front-end servers or on your back-end database servers.

A unique domain user account that acts as the application pool identity for the Shared Services Provider (SSP) application pool. It is recommended that you follow the principle of least privilege and select a unique user account that does not have administrative rights on your front-end servers or on your back-end database servers.

A unique domain user account under which the SSP runs. It is recommended that you follow the principle of least privilege and select a unique user account that does not have administrative rights on your front-end servers or on your back-end database servers.

Configure the server as a Web server

Before you install and configure Office SharePoint Server 2007, you must install and configure the required software on each of your front-end servers. This includes installing and configuring IIS so your front-end servers act as Web servers, installing Windows .NET Framework 2.0, enabling ASP.NET 2.0, and installing Windows Workflow Foundation Runtime Components Beta 2.2 (build 3807.7).

Configure Office SharePoint Server 2007 services

After you have installed and configured Office SharePoint Server 2007 on all of your front-end servers, you must configure Office SharePoint Server 2007 services. The services you need to configure depends on your server topology and the server roles you deploy. Use the following guidelines to determine which services you need to configure in your server farm.

Search and indexing servers You must start and configure the Office SharePoint Server Search service on at least one of your front-end servers. This service provides search and indexing services. You can start and configure this service on any type of server, including: a server that is acting as an application server and provides only Office SharePoint Server 2007 services, a server that is acting as both an application server and a Web server and provides both Office SharePoint Server 2007 services and Web services, or a server that is acting as a Web server and provides only Web services.

Web servers The Web server role is implemented by IIS and the Windows SharePoint Services Web Application service. The Windows SharePoint Services Web Application service must be running on any server that acts as a Web server and renders Web content. This service is started by default on servers that you set up using the Web Front End option during Setup. If you set up a server using the Complete option during Setup, and you want that server to act as a Web server and render Web content, then you must start the Windows SharePoint Services Web Application service on that server.

In addition to configuring services on your front-end servers, you must create the Shared Services Provider (SSP). The SSP makes it possible to share the Office SharePoint Server 2007 services across your server farm. You must create the SSP before you can use it in a farm environment; Office SharePoint Server 2007 does not create the SSP by default in a farm environment.

The following procedures step you through the process of configuring Office SharePoint Server 2007 services, creating a Web application for the SSP, creating the SSP, and configuring indexing settings.

Start and configure the Search service

1. On the SharePoint Central Administration home page, click the Operations tab on the top navigation bar.

2. On the Operations page, in Topology and Services, click Servers in farm.

3. On the Servers in Farm page, click the server on which you want to configure the search service.

4. Click Start next to Office SharePoint Server Search.

5. On the Office SharePoint Server Search Settings page, in the Query and Indexing section, make sure that the Use this server for indexing content and Use this server for serving search queries check boxes are selected.

6. In the Default Catalog Location section, type a path to a physical folder to store the index files, or use the default location that is specified.

7. In the Contact E-Mail Address section, specify a valid e-mail address.

8. In the Service Account section, click Configurable, and in User name and Password, type the user name and password for the user account under which you want the Search service to run. The user account must be a member of the Administrators group on the computer that is running the Search service. If you want to use the principle of least privilege and select a unique user account that does not have administrative rights on your front-end servers or on your back-end database servers, see the Known Issues/Readme for Office SharePoint Server 2007 Beta 2. The user name must be in the format DOMAIN\username.

9. In the Web Front End And Crawling section, do one of the following:.

· If you are configuring the search service on a server that provides Web services and renders Web content, click No dedicated Web front-end computer for crawling

· If you are configuring the search service on a server that is a standalone search server that does not provide Web services and render Web content, click Use a dedicated web front end computer for crawling, and then, in Select a web front end computer, click the computer you want to use for crawling.

10. Click Start.

Start the Windows SharePoint Services Web Application service

You must start the Windows SharePoint Services Web Application service on every computer that you want to act as a Web server and was set up using the Complete option during Setup. This service is started by default on servers that were set up using the Web Front End option. To enhance security, you can leave this service turned off on application servers that do not provide Web content to client computers. Also, you do not need to turn this service on to use SharePoint Central Administration on a server.

1. On the SharePoint Central Administration home page, click the Operations tab on the top navigation bar.

2. On the Operations page, in Topology and Services, click Servers in farm.

3. On the Servers in Farm page, click the server on which you want to start the Windows SharePoint Services Web Application service.

4. Click Start next to Window SharePoint Services Web Application.

Create the Shared Services Provider

1. On the SharePoint Central Administration home page, click the Application Management tab on the top navigation bar.

2. On the Application Management page, in the Office SharePoint Server Shared Services section, click Create or configure this farm's shared services.
