  3. 3. HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS Hardware requirements  Front-end Web server and application server computers: a dual-processor computer with processor clock speeds of 2.5-gigahertz (GHz) or higher and a minimum of 2 gigabytes (GB) of RAM.  Back-end database server: a dual-processor computer with processor clock speeds of 2.0 GHz or higher and a minimum of 2 GB of RAM. Software requirements Web and Application Server  Microsoft Windows Server 2003 (Standard, Enterprise, Datacenter, or Web Edition) with Service Pack 1 (SP1)  Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0  Microsoft .Net Framework 3.0  The Web server and application server computers must be configured as Web servers running Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) in IIS 6.0 worker process isolation mode.  Each of the computers must be using the NTFS file system. Windows Server 2003 includes a conversion utility (Convert.exe) that you can use to convert an existing file allocation table (FAT) volume to NTFS without losing data. Security account requirements To install Office SharePoint Server 2007 in a server farm environment, at-least 2 accounts are required: A. A user account that you can use to install Office SharePoint Server 2007 and run the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard. This account must be:  A domain user account.  A member of the Administrators group on each of your front-end servers.  A member of the SQL Server Logins, which grants login access to your SQL Server instance.  A member of the SQL Server Database Creator server role, which grants permission to create and alter databases.  A member of the SQL Server Security Administrators server role, which grants permission to manage server logins. 3|Page
  4. 4. B. A unique domain user account that you can specify as the Office SharePoint Server 2007 service account. This user account is used to access your SharePoint configuration database. It also acts as the application pool identity for the SharePoint Central Administration application pool and it is the account under which the Windows SharePoint Services Timer service runs. The SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard adds this account to the SQL Server Logins, the SQL Server Database Creator server role, and the SQL Server Security Administrators server role. It is recommended that you follow the principle of least privilege and do not make this user account a member of any particular security group on your front-end servers or your back-end servers. PHASE 1 – INSTALLING SHAREPOINT Best practice: Always Install MOSS using a domain account that is a local administrator on every machine in the farm. Never install MOSS as a local administrator on the sharepoint server. The Moss install will autom atically makes the installation account the administrator for shared services. Using a local account can cause you to be denied access to the farm latter. After preparing your database and the servers in your farm, run Setup and then run the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard on all your farm servers. Do this on all farm servers before going on to create a Shared Services Provider (SSP). I recommend that you run Setup on all the servers that will be in the farm before you configure the farm. You can add servers to the farm at this point, or after you have created and configured an SSP. You can add servers after you have created and configured an SSP to add redundancy, such as additional load-balanced Web servers or additional query servers. It is recommended that you run Setup and the configuration wizard on all your application servers before you create and configure the SSP. Installing MOSS is done in two steps. First the installation and then configuration of the software. The installation is fairly simple and straightforward. Configuration is done after the software is installed. Moss configuration is more complicated than a base WSS install. BEFORE YOU INSTALL MOSS Install MOSS in the following order. I believe based on my experience with Moss that this order makes configuration easier, and ensures that services and applications are in place before they are required by server types: 4|Page
  5. 5. 1. Install the Central Administration site on an application server. In a server farm that includes more than one application server, install the Central Administration site on the application server with the least overall performance load. 2. All your front end servers 3. Index servers (if using a dedicated index server) 4. Query servers(if using a dedicated query server) 5. Any additional application server Start the Office SharePoint Server Search service on the computer that you want to be the index server, and configure it as an index server before you can create an SSP Configure surface area settings in SQL Server 2005 1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Microsoft SQL Server 2005, point to Configuration Tools, and then click SQL Server Surface Area Configuration. 2. In the SQL Server Surface Area Configuration dialog box, click Surface Area Configuration for Services and Connections. 3. In the tree, open your instance of SQL Server, open Database Engine, and then click Remote Connections. 4. Click Local and Remote Connections, click Using both TCP/IP and named pipes, and then click OK. Configure the server as a Web server Configure the front end servers before deploying MOSS 07. This step includes:  installing and configuring IIS  installing Windows .NET Framework 2.0,  enabling ASP.NET 2.0,  Installting Windows Workflow Foundation Runtime Components Install and configure IIS 1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Configure Your Server Wizard. 2. On the Welcome to the Configure Your Server Wizard page, click Next. 5|Page

  13. 13. FIGURE 7 11. After the site opens, do not close it until you have completed the security configuration AFTER INSTALLATION TURNING OFF I.E.’S ENHANCED SECURITY Windows 2003 installs Internet explorer with advanced security activated. This is good practice, however it will prevent content from being displayed correctly in sharepoint. You’ll want to disable enhanced security in the development environment to make sure you have complete access to all functions. 1. Click on start>control panel>add or remove program 2. Click the ADD/REMOVE windows components 3. Uncheck the INTERNET EXPLORER ENHANCED SECURITY CONFIGURATION box 4. Click on the next button 5. BEST PRACTICE: ADD the central administration site to the list of trusted site. ADDING MOSS TO THE LIST OF TRUSTED SITE 1. In internet explorer, click on tools and internet option 2. On the security tab, click the trusted sites icon 3. Click the sites button 4. Clear the box titled require HTTPS for all sites in the zone 13 | P a g e
