SharePoint 2013 Installation

I am getting many emails from my old colleagues friends about SP 2013 and the issues which they were facing in installation of SP2013, Given below are the steps shared by a fellow Colleague David Piscopo

I thought that its worth sharing on my blow

Installation Steps SharePoint 2013

1. Install Windows Server 2008 R2
2. Install Service Pack 1 for Windows Server R2 (the pre-requisite checker does not fulfil this and it has to be installed separately). This can take up to an hour to install)
3. Run the default.hta from the install media
4. Select ‘Install software Prerequisites’ and let it do its thing. This may take a while and there may be several reboots
5. Run ‘Install SharePoint Foundation’ when the pre-requisites are done
6. At the end of the install you will be asked to install the ‘Configuration Wizard’. DO NOT DO THIS as your install will fail.
7. Open the local services and locate the ‘AppFabricCachingService’ service. Change the logon identity of this service so that it is using a local admin account rather than the Network Service
8. Start the AppFabricCachingService service if not already started.
9. Start a command prompt as Administrator and change directory to ‘C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\15\BIN’ (or add the path to your environment – recommended)
10. Execute PSCONFIG to create the config database

PSCONFIG.EXE -cmd Configdb create SkipRegisterAsDistributedCacheHost

This will take a while to complete
