Sharepoint Portal Sharing Server with Active Directory Forest Root

  Asked By: Stephanie    Date: Mar 15    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 998

I've seen this done [on the Microsoft Learning Gateway demonstration VPC], but have no idea how to accomplish it myself and have a client who has a one server enviroment where they'd like to add a Sharepoint Portal.

Current Experiences:
If you try to install Sharepoint Portal Server on an AD root all of the options are greyed out and you can only install/operate WSS. If you add the Active Directory roll to a server after you've installed SPS the Central Administration generates a 'Service Unavailable' message.

Anyone have any thoughts how this could be done?

Are you saying that you are having problems installing SharePoint on a domain controller?

I do it all the time for demos. Wouldn’t want to do it in production very often.

I've never done it in either a production or a test enviroment before.

So if you have an existing Active Directory Domain Controller you've been able to just install  Sharepoint with any problems?

Can I ask if anyone else has faced the same problems I have with this installation?
