Running – Server 2008, SQL 2008, MOSS 2007 SP1

One of the joys of owning your own business is every year in December you decide that you should buy some new business toys. Kind of like a second Christmas. One of the new toys we bought this year was a new server. It is an AMD X2 6000 (3 GHz) with 4 GB of RAM. It is actually a desktop class machine that we use as a server. We actually have 3 of them in this place. They have some fancy Antec case that keeps them from making any noise at all. And since one of them is under my desk that is nice. True server class hardware makes way too much noise for me. Oh yeah, and did I mention the server is like $800. If you want to check it out for yourself look at AlphaPCStore and build your own AMD. I have 3 of these things and they rock.

Anyway the server was slated to run Windows Server 2003 with Virtual Server. (Boring) So instead I decided to load up Windows Server 2008 RC1, SQL Server 2008 CTP, and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 with SP1. I would like to tell you that it was some big long complicated story…. But it wasn’t. Pretty straightforward to do. So I am going to beat on it for a couple more days. If all continues to look good then you can look forward to a post or two on how to set it up. I am just going to format the box and do it all again. Should be fun.

  1. You will need to slip stream SP1 for this to install. Without it, the installer will not run. Slipstreaming is pretty easy to do. You copy the contents of the cd to a hd location (either the x64 or x86 directory depending if you are 64 bit or not). Download the Service Pack and run it with the /extract switch to anothe location on your hard drive. You then copy the contents of the extracted folder into the upgrades folder of the MOSS copy above, and the install should start fine.

  2. Just wondering how your instalation wend and if you were still going to present your instalation instructions and findings.


  3. Hi – We are adding a new x64 server to an existing farm running on MOSS SP1. So I got a new Windows Server 2008 R2 from Systems team but it doesn’t support MOSS SP1.

    Which version of Windows Server 2008 does MOSS SP1 supports?

    Thanks in advance!

  4. If you are in uncomfortable position and have no money to go out from that point, you would have to take the credit loans. Just because that would help you unquestionably. I get short term loan every single year and feel myself good because of this.

  5. Some time before, I really needed to buy a good car for my corporation but I didn’t earn enough money and could not purchase anything. Thank God my friend proposed to get the home loans at trustworthy creditors. Therefore, I acted so and was satisfied with my car loan.
