Installing SharePoint Team Services

Archived content. No warranty is made as to technical accuracy. Content may contain URLs that were valid when originally published, but now link to sites or pages that no longer exist.

SharePoint Team Services, a new technology from Microsoft, is available on the Microsoft Office XP CD (Professional with FrontPage and Enterprise editions), the Microsoft FrontPage 2002 stand-alone CD, and as a Web download for members of the Web Presence Provider for Microsoft FrontPage program. The installation process is simple; you can run the installation and set up a working SharePoint team Web site without having to make many decisions. This simple setup process requires these conditions:

  • The server computer has only one virtual server.

    If you have more than one virtual server, you must install SharePoint Team Services and then choose which virtual servers to extend.

  • Microsoft SQL Server and Microsoft Data Engine (MSDE) are not installed on the server computer.

    If SQL Server or MSDE is installed, you must supply information about the database and extend the virtual server or servers separately.

  • There is no Web site content on the virtual server.

    If you already have content, then you must decide whether to replace the home page for that content with the SharePoint team Web site home page, or to create the new home page as Sharepoint.htm.

If these conditions are met, you can run the SharePoint Team Services installation, answer a few questions, and begin working with the SharePoint team Web site in your browser right away. If your system does not meet these requirements, the installation process ends at the HTML Administration pages, where you can enter database information or decide which virtual server to use for your SharePoint team Web site. For example, if you are running Microsoft Windows 2000 Server, and you already have more than one virtual server, you must choose which virtual servers to extend from HTML Administration pages after Setup.

The following table illustrates the installation paths available on Windows 2000 Server.

Virtual servers

Database

Result

Single

None or MSDE already installed

Virtual server is extended and a SharePoint team Web site is created.

Single

SQL Server 7.0 already installed

Virtual server is not extended — use HTML Administration pages to extend the virtual server and create a SharePoint team Web site.

Multiple

Any database configuration

Virtual server is not extended — use HTML Administration pages to extend the virtual server and create a SharePoint team Web site.

The following table illustrates the installation paths available on a computer with Windows 2000 Professional.

Database

Result

None or MSDE is already installed

The default virtual server is extended and a SharePoint team Web site is created.

SQL Server 7.0 already installed

Virtual server is not extended — use HTML Administration pages to extend the virtual server and create a SharePoint team Web site.

Note that you must have the appropriate hardware and software before installing SharePoint Team Services. For more information, see SharePoint Team Services Requirements.

Note   The security features of SharePoint team Web sites require the NTFS file system. Windows 2000 includes a conversion utility (Convert.exe) that you can use to convert an existing file allocation table (FAT) volume to NTFS — without losing data.

If you try to install SharePoint Team Services to a disk drive formatted with FAT, your default virtual server might not be extended. Also, any sites you create on that virtual server will not be secure.

To install SharePoint Team Services from the Office XP or FrontPage 2002 CD 

  1. Insert the Office XP CD into your server computer's CD-ROM drive.

  2. Navigate to the SharePt folder on the CD.

  3. Double-click Setupse.exe.

  4. Follow the steps in the Setup Wizard to install SharePoint Team Services.

When the Setup Wizard is complete, you have SharePoint Team Services installed on your server computer, and depending on your configuration, the browser is open either to the home page of a working SharePoint team Web site on your default virtual server, or to HTML Administration pages, which you can use to extend a virtual server with SharePoint Team Services.

If you are a member of the Web Presence Provider (WPP) for Microsoft FrontPage program, you can also install SharePoint Team Services from a download page on the Microsoft Web site.

To install SharePoint Team Services from the download 

  1. Open your browser and navigate to the SharePoint Team Services download page.

  2. Click Download Now! 

  3. Select the platform and language you want to download, and then click the download file name to begin the download.

  4. Click Run this program from its current location to begin the installation now, or Save this program to disk to run later.

    If you choose to Save this program to disk, you must then locate and run the program from your hard disk later.

  5. Follow the steps in the Setup Wizard to install SharePoint Team Services.

  6. Use HTML Administration pages or the command line to extend the server with SharePoint Team Services.

Installing SharePoint Team Services on Windows Server 2003

You can also install SharePoint Team Services to a server running Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Standard or Enterprise Edition. If you do install SharePoint Team Services on the Windows Server platform, you must be sure that Internet Information Services is set to run in IIS 5.0 isolation mode. For more information about configuring the IIS isolation modes, see the Internet Information Services Help system.

By default, the Windows Server 2003 platform sets Internet Explorer to High security for the Internet zone and Medium security for trusted zones. You must add each of your Web sites based on SharePoint Team Services and the administration virtual server for SharePoint Team Services to the trusted zone for Internet Explorer before they can work correctly.

To enable SharePoint Team Services for Windows Server 2003 

  1. Open Internet Explorer.

  2. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.

  3. On the Security tab, select Trusted Sites, and then click Sites.

  4. In the Add this Web site to the zone box, type the URL for your server computer (for example, http://server_name), and then click Add.

  5. If you are using the HTTPS protocol to access your administration pages or a site, in the Add this Web site to the zone box, type the URL for your server computer including the https:// protocol (for example, https://server_name), and then click Add.

  6. Click OK to close the Trusted Sites dialog box.

  7. Under Security level for this zone, click Custom Level.

  8. In the Security Settings dialog box, in the Settings section, under User Authentication, select Automatic logon with current username and password, and then click OK.

  9. Click OK again to close the Internet Options dialog box.

Extending a server with SharePoint Team Services

The part of the installation process during which SharePoint Team Services is applied to a virtual server is called extending a server. This process can also create a SharePoint team Web site. When you install SharePoint Team Services using the simple installation method, your default virtual server is extended (and a SharePoint team Web site is created) automatically.

If you do not meet the conditions for the simple installation, you must extend your virtual server in one of three ways:

  • By using HTML Administration pages.

  • By using the install operation with the command-line tools.

  • By running the command-line installation in unattended mode with an edited cfgquiet.ini file.

Each of these methods of extending the server produces slightly different results. When you use HTML Administration pages to extend a server, you have control over which settings are applied when the server is extended. By using HTML Administration pages, you can configure the following elements:

  • Which virtual servers are extended

  • Which collaboration database on which server to use

  • Web document discussion settings

  • Web subscription settings

When you use the install operation with the command-line tools, you still choose which virtual server to extend and specify database information, but the following settings are configured for you:

  • Discussions are enabled and set to unrestricted.

  • Subscriptions are disabled, but the folder subscriptions setting is turned on.

Because you must specify an e-mail server for subscriptions, you must also set the SMTPHost or SendMailCommand property, the EnableNotifications property, the MailSender property, and the MailReplyTo property when you turn on subscriptions. For more information, see Managing Web Document Discussions and Subscriptions.

When you extend the server, you also specify the type of site you want to create on the virtual server. The following table describes the site types you can choose from when you extend the server.

Site type

Description

Command line parameter

SharePoint-based Web site

This option gives you a new SharePoint team Web site that's ready to use.

SHAREPTHP

SharePoint-based Web site (preserves home page if one exists)

This option gives you a new SharePoint team Web site, but does not replace any existing home page you already have. You can use a SharePoint Team Services-compatible Web page editor, such as FrontPage 2002, to integrate your existing content with your new SharePoint team Web site.

SHAREPT

SharePoint-enabled blank Web site (this enables features such as document libraries and lists)

This option gives you SharePoint Team Services, but no Web site content. You can still create a Web site that uses the SharePoint team Web site features, such as a discussion board or survey.

COLLAB

Blank Web site (FrontPage Server Extensions only)

This option gives you a blank Web site extended with FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions and no collaboration options.

PUBLISH

To extend the server from the command line and perform other actions in a batch process at the same time, use unattended setup and configuration. For more information, see Running Unattended Setup.

Using HTML Administration pages to extend a server

You can extend a server by using HTML Administration pages. Doing so gives you the most flexibility to choose which options you want enabled when you extend your server.

To extend a server by using HTML Administration pages 

  1. Open the Server Administration page.

  2. In the list of virtual servers, next to the virtual server you want to extend, click Extend.

  3. In the Administrator box, type the user name for the administrator of the virtual server.

  4. If necessary, in the Database section, enter the collaboration database settings to use.

  5. In the Site Type area, select a site type.

  6. Click Submit.

Using the command line to extend a server

You can extend a server by using the command-line tools, Owsadm or Owsrmadm. To do so, you use the install operation. The install operation takes the following parameters.

Parameter

Short Form

Description

Port

-p

The port number. On IIS 4.0 or later, this value can be an instance number, such as /LM/W3SVC/1. If missing, this parameter defaults to port 80.

Username

-u

If your server is part of a domain, the domain name and your user name. For example, MyDomain/MyUserName.

DatabaseServer

-ds

Name of the server on which the collaboration database is stored. For example, MyServer.

DatabaseName

-dn

Name of the collaboration database. For example, MyServer_collab. The default value is generated automatically from the machine name and the virtual server.

DatabaseUserName

-du

User name for the administrator of the collaboration database.

DatabasePassword

-dp

Password for the database administrator user name.

Siteprovision

-sp

Creates a default SharePoint team Web site when SharePoint Team Services is installed on the virtual server. Takes the following values: SHAREPTHP (the default value), SHAREPT, COLLAB, PUBLISH.

If any of these parameters are missing, default parameters are used, although you are always prompted for a database password when you enter a database user name on the command line.

Note   The database server name can be set using the DatabaseConnection property. If this value is not set, it defaults to the local computer name.

The following example shows the syntax for the install operation:

owsadm.exe –o install –p <port> -u <username> -ds <database server> -dn <database name> 
-du <database username> -dp <database password> -sp <value>

The values for the siteprovision parameter determine what (if any) default content is placed on your extended web. If you use the PUBLISH value, the virtual server is extended with Microsoft FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions. If you use the COLLAB value, the virtual server is extended with SharePoint Team Services and the collaboration database is created. If you use the SHAREPT value, a SharePoint team Web site is also created. If you use the SHAREPTHP value, the SharePoint team Web site is created and the team Web site home page replaces the current default home page.

Removing SharePoint Team Services

You can temporarily or permanently remove SharePoint Team Services on a particular server. To temporarily remove SharePoint Team Services so you can clean or restore your site, you use the Uninstall command. In this mode, much of the data about your site is preserved, so you can extend the virtual server again and return to your original configuration.

To permanently remove SharePoint Team Services, use the Full Uninstall option. Doing so also removes all of the standard SharePoint team Web site folders, and any other files and folders that SharePoint Team Services installed. All of the data about your site (excluding actual site content) is deleted when you perform a full uninstall. You can use either HTML Administration pages or the command line to uninstall SharePoint Team Services.

Using HTML Administration pages to uninstall

You can use HTML Administration pages to uninstall SharePoint Team Services from a virtual server.

To uninstall SharePoint Team Services 

  1. Open the Server Administration page.

  2. In the list of virtual servers, next to the virtual server you want to uninstall, click Administration.

  3. Under Administration, click Uninstall SharePoint Team Services.

  4. If you want to uninstall SharePoint Team Services completely, including the metadata about your Web site, next to Full Uninstall, click Yes.

  5. Click Uninstall.

Using the command line to uninstall

You can uninstall SharePoint Team Services by using the command-line tools, Owsadm or Owsrmadm. To do so, you use the uninstall operation or the fulluninstall operation. The uninstall operation removes SharePoint Team Services from your server. The fulluninstall operation also removes the collaboration database and the standard SharePoint team Web site folders from your virtual server.

The uninstall and fulluninstall operations take the port parameter. The following example shows the syntax for the uninstall operation:

owsadm.exe –o uninstall –p <port>

If you want to perform a full uninstall, but you want to preserve the collaboration database, you can use the –c nodeldb parameter with the fulluninstall operation. The following example shows the syntax to use for preserving the database:

owsadm.exe –o fulluninstall –p <port> -c nodeldb
