Hi,
this is not an error message but just an information that during the configuration the IIS services will be restarted - so if you run other sites on your server you should not run the config wizard during business hours.

So no error, just click on yes and proceed with the configuration.


Can I ask you:
You try to install Windows SharePoint Services 3.0, correct?
Have you downloaded the latest version of it including the latests Service Pack?

Why do you run this 6 year old product/version? Any special needs?

Hi,
yes, there are already two newer versions:
SharePoint Foundation 2010
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=24983

SharePoint Foundation 2013
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35488

And there is no "real" free version - neither of the three. The licensing requirements are, that you have proper Windows licenses / Windows CALs - which normally each and every company has and therefore it is called "free".

I would tend to use SharePoint Foundation 2013 as with this version you can even give external user (so no affiliates or employee of you) access without requiring additional licenses (which was necessary for SPF 2010).

Downside:
SharePoint Foundation / WSS are quite easy to install in a OOTB installation, but that could be dangerous depending on your final requirements (e.g. using the internal SQL Express edition has a db size limit of 4/10GB). Also AD intergration ... - everything should be considered carefully.
But you are here at the right place to ask experts questions :-)

Hi,

first of all - sorry - but SharePoint Foundation 2013 requires at least OS Windows Server 2008R2 (see http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc262485.aspx)

If you install SharePoint in Stand-Alone mode, you get SQL Server Express edition installed automatically.
SPF 2010 -> SQL Express 2008 -> max database (data file) size 4GB
SPF 2013 -> SQL Express 2012 -> max database (data file) size 10GB

The good thing is that each site collection can have its own database(s) therefore if you manage/monitor your SharePoint farm closely it is hard to reach the limit.

You can use any full SQL Server edition like Standard or Enterprise with unlimited db sizes (due to backup/restore times you should consider to keep the db <100GB).
