SharePoint 2013 Installation and Base Configuration
This process is the step by step installation process. This allows you to build out a farm, however it is critical to make sure you remember that I am using my naming convention, and that this is for reference as your architecture might vary, or have differences based on dependencies.
Up to this point you should have already setup your Service accounts, and built out your servers
Let’s start with the Installation Wizard.
First run the Pre-Requisite Installer
After clicking the next button this appeared, accept the terms and clicked next.
After the pre-reqs installed you will want to restart your server.
After the server restarted, rerun the pre-reqs installer again which resulted in this:
Then click on Install SharePoint Server
You will be presented with this screen:
This box appeared, so click yes
Next you will need to enter the product key and click Continue.
Next accept the license agreement and clicked Continue
Now you need to choose the server type (by default click Complete), and clicked Install Now
After a bit of waiting the install completed and you will be presented with the option to run the configuration wizard.
Click Next… This warning popped up..
Next choose to Create a new Server farm and clicked Next
Enter your database server and farm account info and clicked Next
Write down your Passphrase, and enter it and clicked next
By default leave your Central Admin Web Application settings at their defaults and selected Next
Next verify that all of info was correct on the summary page and clicked Next
SharePoint then started to configure and now you patiently waited for it to complete…
Once it completed it will let you know and requested that you participate in the Customer Experience Program. Make your selection and clicked OK
You will be given the option to run the Configuration Wizard, choose not and move on.
You will be taken to the Central Admin Home Page at which point you have concluded the install experience.
