SharePoint deveopment training course

Here we will discuss how we can install SharePoint 2016 using PowerShell. We have discussed previously how we can do using setup files. Need to mount Microsoft share point 2016 DVD to a machine.

Create the Service Accounts needed. We have added the following Service Accounts with permissions to the SQL and SharePoint servers.

Member of the Local Administrators group on SharePoint Server and SQL Server.

(Go to Local Users and Groups -> Administrators group Properties -> Add)

Access to the server that runs SQL Server.

Member of the following SQL Server roles:
