I am installing SharePoint 2010 Beta on a R2 server. The filename is “en_sharepoint_server_2010_beta_x64_x16-19249.exe” so I will run the installer as administrator and give it a go.
Install the prerequisites:
Here is a list of what will be installed on your system.
• Application Server Role, Web Server (IIS) Role
• Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Native Client
• Microsoft “Geneva” Framework Runtime
• Microsoft Sync Framework Runtime v1.0 (x64)
• Microsoft Chart Controls for Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5
• Microsoft Filter Pack 2.0
• Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Analysis Services ADOMD.NET
* Microsoft SharePoint Products and Technologies 2010 Preparation Tool
Manually download them from here:
Installation completed successfully
I assume installing as a Stand-alone is easier but I would like to add servers easily in the future without hacking my install up.. so I am choosing Complete from the options.
I thought I had a full version on this server… So I will use express. If you are not sure what the name is for the SQL instance just open the services window (instance) and you will find the name.
If you have problems connecting SharePoint 2010 Beta R2 to a SQL server on another computer this tool may help you open the proper firewall ports:
Once you have made a connection to MSSQL you can set the farm password and click next.
I usually like to set the port number to something memorable so I can easily access my SharePoint admin page from other systems on my network on the fly. This number is a randomly generated number. You can change this port in the future by modifying the binding setting in IIS.
Well, there you have it, a very familiar install if you have ever installed SharePoint 2007. I will publish more articles on SharePoint 2010 in the future. Check back.
