This is eight in the series on MOSS Scripted Installation (SQL Express Edition)

Lets get our hands dirty and use psconfig and stsadm to do the configuration that we want!

Earlier we have seen this bit, wherein you don’t run the configuration wizard and run these commands from a batch file

psconfig.exe -cmd configdb -create

psconfig -cmd helpcollections -installall

psconfig -cmd secureresources

psconfig -cmd services -install

psconfig -cmd installfeatures

psconfig -cmd adminvs -provision -port 8000 -windowsauthprovider onlyusentlm

psconfig -cmd applicationcontent -install

Now lets get further down in the script

stsadm -o osearch -action start -role indexquery -farmcontactemail [email protected] -farmserviceaccount domain\username -farmservicepassword password -defaultindexlocation “C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Servers\12.0\Data\Applications”

This starts your Office Search Services.

stsadm -o extendvs -url http://%computername%:8100 -ownerlogin domain\username -owneremail [email protected] -exclusivelyusentlm -apidname “OurSSPon8100” -apcreatenew -apidtype configurableid -apidlogin domain\username -apidpwd password

stsadm -o extendvs -url http://%computername%:8200 -ownerlogin domain\username -owneremail [email protected] -exclusivelyusentlm -apidname “MySiteson8200” -apcreatenew -apidtype configurableid -apidlogin domain\username -apidpwd password

stsadm -o createssp -title “Shared Service Provider” -url http://%computername%::8100 -mysiteurl http://%computername%:8200 -indexserver %COMPUTERNAME% -indexlocation “%Programfiles%\Microsoft Office Servers\12.0\Data\Applications” -ssplogin domain\username -ssppassword password

stsadm -o extendvs -url http://%computername%:80 -ownerlogin domain\username -owneremail [email protected] -exclusivelyusentlm -apidname “SiteCollectionon80” -sitetemplate SPSPortal -apidtype configurableid -apidlogin domain\username -apidpwd password

This will setup your webapps for shared services, my sites, create shared service provider and create your site collection as well.

That’s it.

Your MOSS installation is now completely scripted on SQL EXPRESS Edition.

Next series will be on unattended SQL Server 2005 installation and then a modified version of this script.
