This section describes how to install and configure Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services version 3.0.
- Install Windows SharePoint Services
- Configure Windows SharePoint Services
- Prevent Event ID Error Messages
- Configure Windows SharePoint Services Search Service
- Create a New Web Application on COLLAB01
- Move COLLAB01 into the Shared Windows SharePoint Services Servers OU
Before you begin, you must download Windows SharePoint Services. See Windows SharePoint Services in Windows Server 2003 for more information.
To deploy Windows SharePoint Services version 3.0 in a server farm environment, you must install and configure Windows SharePoint Services version 3.0 on a front-end server before you configure Windows SharePoint Services version 3.0 services or create sites. You must also have Microsoft SQL Server running on the back-end server before you install Windows SharePoint Services version 3.0 on your front-end server.
In this procedure you do an advanced installation of Windows SharePoint Services on your front-end server, COLLAB01.
- On COLLAB01, run SharePoint.exe.
- Click Yes to proceed with the installation.
- Read and accept the license agreement, and then click Continue.
- On the Choose the installation you want page, click Advanced.
- On the Server Type page, click Web Front End, and then click Install Now.
- When the installation completes, leave the Run the SharePoint Wizard now check box selected, and then click Close.
After Setup finishes, you can use the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard to configure Windows SharePoint Services version 3.0. The SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard automates several configuration tasks, including:
- Installing and configuring the configuration database.
- Installing and enabling Windows SharePoint Services version 3.0 services.
- Installing the SharePoint Central Administration Web application.
Use the following instructions to run the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard.
- On the Welcome to SharePoint Products and Technologies page, click Next.
- Click Yes in the warning dialog box that appears notifying you that some services might need to be restarted during configuration.
- On the Connect to a server farm page, click No, I want to create a new server farm and then click Next.
- On the Specify Configuration Database Settings page, for Database server, type SQLBE01. In the Specify Database Access Account section, enter FABRIKAM\SharePoint_AppID for Username and the corresponding password in the Password field. Click Next.
- On the Configure SharePoint Central Administration Web Application page, select the Specify port number check box, and then enter 8080 in the box. In Configure Security Settings, ensure that NTLM is selected, and then click Next.
You must configure the Administrative Virtual Server to use NTLM authentication if you are going to use Microsoft Provisioning System (MPS) to provision Windows SharePoint Services sites.
- Complete the installation. When prompted to log on to the SharePoint Central Administration Web page, enter the credentials of the domain administrator.
You can safely ignore the event ID 10017 error messages that are logged in the System log. If you want to prevent the event ID error messages from being logged in the System log, use the Component Services snap-in to enable the Local Activation permission to the Internet Information Services (IIS) Wamreg Admin Service for the domain user account that you specified as the Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 service account.
- Click Start, click Run, type dcomcnfg in the Open box, and then click OK.
- Expand Component Services, expand Computers, expand My Computer, and then click DCOM Config.
- Right-click IIS WAMREG admin Service, and then click Properties.
- Click the Security tab.
- Under Launch and Activation Permissions, click Edit.
- In the Launch Permission dialog box, click Add.
- In the Select Users, Computers, or Groups dialog box, type the domain user account that you specified as the Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 service account (Fabrikam\Sharepoint_appID), click Check Names, and then click OK.
- In the Permissions for UserName list, click to select the Allow check box that is next to Local Activation, and then click OK two times.
