I've looked around and have seen a lot of postings and i'm trying to get a clear direction.
I have a client in an installation with 20 users with a single 2008 r2 server environment. This server is the DC and is currently running wss3. The sharepoint environment isn't that complex, primarily plain lists with a few basic workflows and some custom forms that were made in sharepoint desinger.
I need to move them to sP2010 as I need to start utilizing some of its features such as field permissions and better workflows.
I started to perform the in place upgrade after running a clean stsadm precheck and the pre requisite instalation went fine.
When I went to install the actual sharepoint it told me that it can't run in stand alone mode on a DC.
I've seen various articles that say you really shouldn't put it on a DC but client doesn't really have resource for a server just for sharepoint.
What is the easiet way around this? Has anyone successfully acomplished this? What steps are involved?
I will say please have a VMware server, Virtual server or Virtual Box installed on your DC instead of directly installing it.
After that you can have a virtual server running on DC and install SharePoint
