Building a SharePoint 2019 MinRole Environment in Microsoft Azure – Prepping SharePoint Servers

So now that our domain is built, servers are configured and SharePoint 2019 template is installed, we need to prep the servers that will be running SharePoint for the installation.  We have done most of the work already, but some steps need to be done for the install to go smoothly.  In this post, I’ll show you how to finish prepping the servers to effect an easy install which we will accomplish in the next post.  I am going to do as much of this with PowerShell in because we will be doing this on multiple servers.  PowerShell scripts are the easiest for ensuring correct, repeatable steps.

Building a SharePoint 2019 MinRole Environment in Microsoft Azure – Build SharePoint 2019 Template with AutoSPInstaller

In the previous post, we have built our server farm, it is time to install SharePoint itself.  As in my other walkthroughs for this, we are going to utilize AutoSPInstaller.  The process is very similar to the one I illustrated in my series earlier, but this time we are building a full MinRole environment.  In this post, we’ll walk through the process of building out the SP2019 template for the farm.

Building a SharePoint 2019 MinRole Environment in Microsoft Azure – Deploy SQL Server

Once the domain controller is configured and active directory for the farm is created it is time to deploy SQL Server.  Because this will be an “on-prem” farm I will not be utilizing an Azure SQL Database but instead will deploy an actual SQL Server VM.  This is made pretty straight forward as Azure provides a template for this.

Building a SharePoint 2019 MinRole Environment in Microsoft Azure – Build SharePoint Server Virtual Machine

Now that the Domain Controller along with Active Directory and DNS is implemented we can move on to the SharePoint servers.  As I had stated before, this environment will be a full MinRole farm.  It won’t be a high availability farm, though I will likely build that out in a future set of posts.  The SharePoint component of this environment will consist of a single web front end, application server, search server, and distributed cache server.  In this post, we will prepare the servers before creating the configuration file for SharePoint 2019.
