Last week I was happily given the task to arrange and install six SharePoint development servers for our SharePoint development team.
We requested six virtual w2k3 SP2 dual core servers with 4GB memory. By default SQL server 2005 standard edition SP2 was installed.
Although the boxes where all virtual, unfortunately we are not in the luxury to just configure 1 server and use that one for the other five boxes.
I installed and configured software on the boxes synchronously and keeping track of my actions in the following lists.
Additional development tools
|Configurations ||Description ||Server 1 ||Server 2 |
|SMTP server || ||x ||x |
|Add STSADM.EXE to your local variables path || ||x ||x |
|Quicklaunch pins ||show desktop, IE, 12-hyve, ||x ||x |
|Startmenu pins ||Central Admin, VS.NET, SQL server management, Computer management ||x ||x |
|Copy the startmenu to the all users profile || ||x ||x |
I hope this is useful for you. Let me know if you have additional hints and tips.
