I am using a computer where I am installing SharePoint Foundation 2010 for my trail use.
I am trying to install SharePoint in Stand Alone mode. Creating New farm, new database everything.
On a fresh Windows Server 2008 R2 I have domain and AD installed.
Below are information about machine:
Computer name: portal
Full Computer nameL portal.mgm.edu
Domain : mgm.edu
I installed SharePoint Foundation 2010. Then I had to use : SharePoint product configuration wizard,
Then it asked me :
Connect to Server Farm:
- Connect to existing server Farm
- Create a new server farm (I chose this one)
Now it gave Specify Configuration database settings:
Please note I have not setup SQL server 2008 in advance I am assuming that after I provide information on below page system will install SQL Express for me.
Please tell me what should I put under:
Database server: ???? (what should be value in this place?)
Database Name: sharepoint_config
Database Access account:
Username: mgm.edu\administrator (mgm.edu is my domain and ADMINISTRATOR has permissions as local and domain admin)
Password : ******
For database server name I also tried these options:
.\localhost , portal\localhost, mgm.edu\localhost , portal , portal.mgm.edu
but all gives same error as above because of which I am not able to go to next page in installation.
Please also see attached document for more reference.
