How to: Manually Install SharePoint Products on Windows Server for Team Foundation Server

Updated: March 2011

Because you can install Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 during Team Foundation Server configuration, you should perform this procedure only if you want to achieve either of the following results: 

  • You want to install SharePoint Products on a different server from Team Foundation Server. 

  • You want to install Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 or Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010.

This topic covers only the installation of SharePoint Products. If you install SharePoint Products, you must also complete additional tasks, which differ based on whether you are installing SharePoint Products on the same server as Team Foundation Server or on a remote server and whether you are installing Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007, SharePoint Server 2010, or Windows SharePoint Services 3.0.

  • If you install SharePoint Products on the same server as Team Foundation Server, you must provision the installation of SharePoint Products. If you install Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 or SharePoint Server 2010, you must make some additional configurations before dashboards will function. You should make these configurations before you connect the portal to the deployment of Team Foundation Server. For more information, see Checklist: Single-Server Installation.

  • If you install SharePoint Products on a remote server (a server that is not running Team Foundation Server), you must meet the requirements in the previous bullet, and you must install the Extensions for Windows SharePoint Services on the server that is running SharePoint Products. For more information, see Checklist: Multiple-Server Installation.

Team Foundation Server 2010 contains dashboards that use SharePoint Products features to display team data, which are defined for MSF process templates. The dashboards that are available to you depend on the version of SharePoint Products that you install.

  • If you install the Enterprise editions of either Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 or SharePoint Server 2010, you can use five dashboards that are configured with reports that are based on Microsoft Excel. 

  • If you install Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 Standard, SharePoint Server 2010 Standard or Windows SharePoint Services 3.0, you can use two dashboards that are configured with reports that are based on SQL Server Reporting Services.

SharePoint Products has its own set of prerequisites that you must install before you perform this procedure. 

Team Foundation Server has no service pack requirements for SharePoint Products. However, certain operating systems have requirements for Windows SharePoint Services 3.0.

If you are running Windows Server 2008, you must download an installation program for Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 that has a service pack already added (Service Pack 1 for Windows Server 2008 or Service Pack 2 for Windows Server 2008 R2). For your convenience, here are links to the 32-bit or 64-bit installation program for Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 with the most recent service pack from the Microsoft Web site:

Although Windows Server 2003 does not have the same requirements as Windows Server 2008, the most recent service pack is recommended.

Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 or SharePoint Server 2010 have no operating system requirements that relate to service packs and Team Foundation Server.

  • If you install SharePoint Products, you can use any port that you want for the Central Administration site. You do not have to use port 17012.

  • NTLM is the recommended authentication.

  • Team Foundation Server Extensions for Windows SharePoint Services does not support Basic authentication or anonymous authentication.

  • After you install SharePoint Products, you must provision a Web application.

Required Permissions

To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Administrators security group on the computer where you install SharePoint Products and where you host its databases.

To install SharePoint Products to work with Team Foundation Server

  1. Start the installation wizard for SharePoint Products.

    You can start this wizard by inserting the installation DVD. If you are installing Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 or SharePoint Server 2010, type your product key, and click Continue.

  2. On the Read the Microsoft Software License Terms page, read the agreement. If it is acceptable, select the I accept the terms of this agreement check box, and then click Continue.

  3. On the Choose the installation you want page, perform one of the following steps:

    • If you are installing Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 or Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007, click Advanced.

    • If you are installing SharePoint Server 2010, click Server Farm.

  4. On the Server Type tab, perform one of the following steps:

    • If you are installing Windows SharePoint Services 3.0, click Web Front End.

    • If you are installing Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 or SharePoint Server 2010, click Complete.

  5. If you are installing SharePoint Server 2010, you must skip this step. Otherwise, on the Feedback tab, specify an option. (This is not a required step.)

    For more information about the program, click the link. You must have an Internet connection to view the program information.

  6. Click Install Now.

    When the installation wizard finishes, a dialog box appears that prompts you to complete the configuration of your server.

  7. In that dialog box, verify that the Run the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard now check box is selected.

  8. Click Close to start the configuration wizard.

  9. On the Welcome to SharePoint Products and Technologies page, click Next.

    NoteNote

    If a warning about restarting certain services appears, click Yes. Some services might be need to be restarted during the configuration phase.

  10. On the Connect to a server farm page, click No, I want to create a new server farm, and then click Next.

  11. On the Specify Configuration Database Settings page, perform the following steps:

    1. In Database server, type the name of the server that is running SQL Server and which you will use to host the databases for Team Foundation Server. If you will use a named instance, add its name after the name of the database server, separated by a slash (for example, MyDatabaseServer\MyInstanceName).

    2. In Database name, type the name of the database that you want to use, or accept the default value.

    3. Under Specify Database Access Account, in Username, type the name of the user account that you want to use as the service account for SharePoint Products (WSSSERVICE). 

      You can use the same service account that you will use for Team Foundation Server (referred to as TFSSERVICE). 

    4. Under Specify Database Access Account, in Password, type the password for the service account.

    5. After you specify all the required information, click Next.

  12. If you are installing Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 or Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007, you must skip this step. Otherwise, you must type a password in Passphrase, confirm the password by typing it again in Confirm Passphrase, and then click Next.

  13. On the Configure SharePoint Central Administration Web Application page, select the Specify port number check box, and type 17012.

    Team Foundation Server uses this as the port number for the SharePoint Products administration site. You can use any port number, but Team Foundation Server has always used 17012 as the port number for the SharePoint Products administration site.

  14. In Configure Security Settings, click NTLM, and then click Next.

  15. On the Completing the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard page, review the information, and then click Next.

  16. On the Configuration Successful page, click Finish.

  17. Provision a Web application.

    NoteNote

    Configuration for Team Foundation Server is not complete. You may have additional configurations to complete, based on which product you are installing and whether it is installed on the same server as Team Foundation Server. For more information, see Checklist: Multiple-Server Installation or Checklist: Single-Server Installation.
