Cannot view page

  Asked By: Antione    Date: May 28    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 7585

OK, I got tired of not having my own box, so I loaded up a drive on my home
computer with W2003 Std, Edition, SQL 2000, and SPS 2003.

I recall when I first installed SPS,I had trouble just after the initial
install when it brough up the farm settngs to continue the configuration
after the install. IE couldn't find //localhost:28283 it asks me to give
credentials three times and then says 'can not view page.'

I recall getting around this, but now I cant recall.

Can someone give me the hint??

I would suspect the App Pool identity doesn't have proper access to the
database. Check out my setup guide here:

Another thing I forgot:

"Network requirements
SharePoint Portal Server 2003 is supported only on servers that are members
of a Microsoft Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, or Windows Server 2003 domain.

You must install and operate SharePoint Portal Server 2003 in a domain
environment. Installing and operating SharePoint Portal Server 2003 in a
workgroup environment is not supported.

All servers in a server farm must be members of the same domain.

So if I want to do a stand alone server, what then?

Yes, my mistake was specifying "administrator" instead of "<localhost's
name>\administrator" as the database owner account.

When you 'repair' a sharepoint install it gives you the chance to re-answer
this question. So I did.

The system seems to be running ok on my standalone server, so I don't know
about that install warning I read. It could be for other reasons and
features I will not be using in a play place.

I run SharePoint Portal Server on a laptop that is not a domain
controller, every day.

If you don't have an Active Directory you won't have some SharePoint
Portal Server features (like Audiences).

Answer #6    Answered By: Monte Cooley     Answered On: May 28

Can you have Audiences if you self-populate the User Profile database either manually or programmatically?

Answer #7    Answered By: Guadalupe Bullock     Answered On: May 28

You can manually or programmatically add profiles. You just can't create
them from the Active Directory (because there isn't one).

Answer #8    Answered By: Nathanial Mcclure     Answered On: May 28

The only thing I couldn't get working on a stand-alone install is the Portal
Servers Single Sign On - It is quite picky about the accounts you use to set it
up, which is probably a good thing.

Answer #9    Answered By: Matt Prince     Answered On: May 28

I don’t think it would matter how the profiles are created. Audiences can filter either the profiles, or AD information, or both.

Does this help?

Answer #10    Answered By: Brooks Bond     Answered On: May 28

Obviously, you will not be able to use groups to define audiences, but I am pretty sure everything else will work with a manual profile.
Maybe your fingers will be out of commission if you create enough of them.

My real point was, very few SharePoint Portal Server features _require_
domain services like AD. I run SPS "stand alone" all the time.
