Createssp: Stsadm operation (Office SharePoint Server)

SharePoint 2007

Updated: January 24, 2008

Applies To: Office SharePoint Server 2007

Updated: 2008-01-24

Operation name: Createssp

Creates a new Shared Services Provider (SSP) in the farm. To configure an SSP, you must have already configured an index server for the farm. Without an index server, creation of a new SSP will fail.

NoteNote:

The createssp operation only applies to Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 for Search. It does not apply to Microsoft Office Project Server 2007 or Microsoft Office Forms Server 2007 as an SSP can be created without specifying an index server.

stsadm -o createssp

   -title <SSP name>

   -url <Web application URL>

   -mysiteurl <MySite URL>

   -ssplogin <user name>

   -indexserver <index server>

   -indexlocation <index file path>

   [-ssppassword <password>]

   [-sspdatabaseserver <SSP database server>]

   [-sspdatabasename <SSP database name>]

   [-sspsqlauthlogin <SQL user name>]

   [-searchdatabaseserver <search database server>]
