SharePoint binaries are here, on the development server. Now, we’ll run the “SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard”.

The command line tool to do so is psconfig.exe, located in “C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\BIN” folder.

This tool allows you to create, join, upgrade and remove a server in a SharePoint farm.

To create a farm, we’ll go through the following steps:


You can find help on those steps here :

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\Help\1033 , opening psconfig.chm (the only file in this folder) :

The adapted script to create the farm on our server is:

psconfig.exe -cmd configdb -create -server MSDN -database MOSS_ConfigDB -user ad\MOSS_Farm_Svc -password moss -admincontentdatabase MOSS_CentralAdmin_ContentDB
psconfig.exe -cmd helpcollections -installall
psconfig.exe -cmd secureresources
psconfig.exe -cmd services -install
psconfig.exe -cmd installfeatures
psconfig.exe -cmd adminvs -provision -port 1234 -windowsauthprovider onlyusentlm
psconfig.exe -cmd applicationcontent -install

And here’s the script running :

And here, the result : Central Administration running:

Next step, is to remove this horrible message “Server Farm Configuration Not Complete” !
