Good afternoon experts,
I am kind of under the gun here. I have been using Office365 to get myself familiar with Sharepoint, but my eval expires today. I am pretty sure of what I want in my Sharepoint deliverable , but I am not sure about the following components I will need for a proof of concept build for the Executive staff:
Windows 2008 Server
Active Directory Install
SQL Server 2008/2012
What I need to know from you guys is to know if the installs for the above technologies are similiar to the old days when I could install a Windows 2003 server with Active Directory, DNS, DHCP in a snap.
I have a subscription to safari books online , but I was wondering if there is a link to a step by step install of Windows server 2008 that includes Active Directory, DHCP and DNS all wrapped up in one tututorial. Then I will need a tutorial on how to install Sharepoint with SQL 2008/2012.
I have three machines that I am going to use (no I am not virtualizing anything as of yet) that are sufficient for my needs. your comments, thoughts, advice and links to pertinant tutorial content will be much appreciated.
