This long post series raised interest from many of you. Thanks for that.

I was asked few times to provide a little synthesis and the scripts used, so here they are:

Steps :

    1. Planning
    2. Decisions
    3. Windows Server 2003 unattended setup
    4. Unattended DC promo
    5. Active Directory preparation & SQL Server 2005 SP2 setup
    6. SharePoint prerequisites setup
    7. SharePoint binaries setup
    8. SharePoint configuration wizard
    9. Setup MOSS 2007 farm with minimum settings
    10. Setup Visual Studio 2008 SP1 + Team Foundation Explorer
    11. Setup Visual Studio extensions for WSS v1.3
    12. Setup Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007 Enterprise
    13. Setup Microsoft SharePoint Designer 2007
    14. Setup Internet Explorer 7 developer toolbar, WSS v3 SDK and MOSS 2007 SDK
    15. Add useful external tools
    16. Implement SPDevmod from Scot Hillier


I attach to this post all the scripts used during these posts. They are packed in a ZIP file.

Of course, I modified them :

  • License keys are all replaced by XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX
  • Passwords are all set to “password”
  • The server is named SERVER (yes it is !)
  • Sources and binaries are available from a “Z:” drive
  • Steps 15 & 16 are not scripted
  • The MSP files (steps 12 & 13) were removed.They are too big to be attached to this post
