The SMTP service
Now that you’ve enabled SMTP, proven that all the bits that needed to install have installed,
and proven that IIS is up, running, and compatible with 6.0, let’s move on to the Standalone
installation of SharePoint Foundation.
Feel free to close out of the IIS console, any extraneous windows, and Server Manager for that
matter (if you haven’t already); you won’t need them after this point.
Standalone Installation of SharePoint Foundation
This section of the chapter shows how to do a Standalone installation and what happens when
you do. (After the installation is complete, we will finish up with some extra configuration tasks
in the “Post-Installation Configuration Tasks” section of the chapter. These are tasks you’ll have
to do regardless of which type of installation you’ve done.) Now that the hotixes and other
prerequisites have successfully installed, the actual SharePoint installation process can begin. Keep
in mind that the account you are logged in with when you start the installation must have local
administrative rights (in order to install software, make changes to services, and so on). It will
be considered the installation or setup account.
1. To start, double-click the SharePointFoundation.exe executable (as you did before in
order to install prerequisites).
2. Once the SharePoint Foundation 2010 installation screen comes up, you can click the
Install SharePoint Foundation link.
Once you’ve started the installation, a gray screen will come up very quickly, saying
“Please wait while SharePoint prepares the necessary files.” There might also be a quick
command prompt window as well.
