Installing SharePoint Fundation 2010 on a Domain Controller

First at all, you must know that this is a hazardous method. It is stronglly recomended to do not install SharePoint into a Domain Controller because of performance, security and others.

If you really want to do that, you can use this method but, only on a test environment and for your own risk.

Please read these posts before installing:

My deployment:

First step is to install SPF 2010 using a config file. You cannot install standalone version of SPF 2010 but you can install Farm version.

Download SPF 2010 and extract instalation kit into a distinct folder.

D:\SharePointFiles\SharePoint.exe /extract:D:\SPF2010

Identify and edit config.xml file, using notepad or other XML Editor. You can find the file in %extractedpath%\Files\SetupFarmSilent\

(Run CMD in Admin Mode)

After that run setup.exe using /config parameter and full path to config.xml file as paramater.

D:\SPF2010\setup.exe /config D:\SPF2010\Files\SetupFarmSilent\config.xml


Second step:

After install, DO NOT RUN configuration Wizard. It is better to create first the database using psconfig tool.

Navigate to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\BIN

psconfig -cmd configdb -create -server srv-01\SharePoint -database SPF_Config_DB -user SharePoint\Admin.sql -password Abc*123 -passphrase C0mpl3x-P@ss0rd  -admincontentdatabase SPF_Admin_Content_Db

After that, run SharePoint 2010 Products Configuration Wizard.

I was trying to install SPF2010 integrated with Active Directory, by using –addomain  and –adorgunit parameters but I wasn’t able to create a new content for a SharePoint site.

Run Central Admin, but DO NOT USE Configuration Wizards because it is possible to alter Default site from IIS.

Remember: Use this methond only for test servers.
