About the author

Hi, my name is Andreas and I'm the author.

Back in 2007 SharePoint was released without a lot of documentation. The community had to evolve. Microsoft's marketing division was on steroids. And we had a lot of orders.

I had to redo my first installations and wasted days of doing the same steps again and again.

That's why I created installation guides for SharePoint 2016, 2013, 2010 and 2007.

I analyzed the installation process step by step, wrote down information and techniques I used, and checked 100s of Google search results for solutions to specific problems...

You can benefit from 8+ years of installation experience, 100+ installed, configured & reviewed environments, SWISS Top 500 companies and 100+ hours of refinement.

And: 206+ companies around the world used my SharePoint 2016 installation material (January 2017).

What were your needs?

Installation of Access Servies

How did the material solve your needs?

Nearly got me there - still needed Microsoft assistance as they found a bug in their procedures. It seems they did not follow own best practices with multiple service accounts and the 2016 install wizard was set to only setup with a single service account - even if gave multiple accounts.

What results did you get?

It's working now.

I have a specific scenario, does it help me?

Yes! And here's why: Each part of the document is modular. If you just need a Windows Server and SharePoint that's ok. If you also need accounts planning, SQL Server and several SharePoint servers just add the parts to your individual installation process.

I'm a beginner and very new to SharePoint, is the book for me?

Yes. You'll get clear, easy to follow steps and lots of pictures starting with preparation and ending with a successful installation.

I'm experienced with SharePoint, is the book for me?

I've written the book with experienced SharePoint administrators and developers in mind too. There are lots of topics including script automation or accounts and permission planning for Web and Service Applications.

Doesn't a book go out of date as soon as it's published?

This is part of the reason why I made the book digital instead of hard-copy. I plan to update the eBook every few months so that you always have the most up to date information.

Does this material include Scripts for creating Service Applications?

Yes! There are scripts to create every Service Application like e.g. User Profiles and Search except Office Web Apps and PowerPivot.

Does this material cover high availability?

Although you can install multiple Web- and Application Server it doesn't discuss high availability or multiple SQL Server (clustering or mirroring).

Does this material cover Kerberos and SPNs?


I still have a question...

Sure just write me an eMail with your question and I will answer as soon as possible.
