Windows Configuration

Setup must ensure the operating system is configured for server applications and tools by:

  • Changing the computer name if it was modified on the Internal Domain Information page.
  • Verifying that the local network adapter is configured and that the necessary protocols and services are installed and configured.
  • Installing Internet Information Services (IIS), IIS documentation, IIS administration tools, the Network News Transfer Protocol (NNTP) service, ASP.NET, RPC over HTTP Proxy, and the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) service. IIS is required to support Web-based services, including the Windows SharePoint Services Web site (your intranet), Outlook Web Access, and Remote Web Workplace.
  • Installing and configuring Active Directory. As part of the domain configuration, the domain is set to the Windows 2000 native functional level to support server tools.
    When Active Directory is installed, the Directory Services Restore Mode password is synchronized with the built-in administrator account password.
  • Installing Microsoft Search to provide indexing and querying support for Exchange Server 2003.

Caution

  • Close any applications or windows, other than Setup, before clicking Next. When you click Next, component installation begins.
  • If you cancel Setup now, the server will not comply with the licensing requirements and will automatically shut down after 7 days.

Note

  • When components are being installed, your computer may restart. After your computer restarts, Setup continues.
