At this point, it might be good to point out that this field only allows registered managed
accounts (Figure 3.44). As such, it’s a good thing we’ve already registered the account
for this web application; otherwise, we’d have to either stop and do that or use an
existing account. (That’s not a good option for us at this point, since all other accounts will be
used by other, often busy, services.)
10. In this case, the account I recently registered to be used for a web application was
dem0tek\spfcontent . In my case, I needed to click the down arrow and select it from the
registered accounts list. If the account you plan to use wasn’t the default for you, select
it in the conigurable field before continuing.
The last sections to configure to create a web application are Database Name and
Authentication, Failover Server, Search Server, Service Application Connections, and
Customer Experience Improvement Program, shown in Figure 3.45.
The final settings
in the Create New
For the Database Name and Authentication sections, a lot of the defaults are fine. This
section requires a SQL database name, a name for the content database of this web application,
and how SharePoint is supposed to authenticate to access the content on the SQL server.
11. Be sure to specify the SQL server name (SharePoint already knows mine, rr1 ). You can
also name the content database for the web application (the default of WSS_Content works
for me, so I’m not going to change it).
12. Finally, if your SQL server uses SQL authentication, select it and enter the correct
credentials in the username and password fields below the SQL authentication option. My SQL
database server supports Windows authentication, so I am keeping that option selected.
13. For the Failover Server section, I plan to leave it blank, since I don’t have SQL
configured for failover. If you did, this is where you would specify the failover SQL server that
SharePoint could use if SQL were set up to support SQL Server database mirroring.
