I just created a VM of Windows 2008 R2 (Standard) server and installed SQLServer 2008 Standard edition. Now before moving towards Sharepoint 2010 Enterprise I would to ask few things.
i work for a bank so we do have domain environment with multi farming like Exchange, SQLServer are on seperate servers. But I want to learn sharepoint on my own 4GB laptop and offcoruse i cant come up with the exchange so to come up with the similar environment what can i do?
- Create AD in windows 2008 server?
- Install free mail servers i.e AXIGEN
- Create Windows XP client VM
is this the right sequence I should follow?
Now to keep the above mentioned things what advise u guys can give a newbie like me so i can create a good working environment and wouldnt have problems later on if I create the same in my office for UAT and production. Any guidelines for the installation.
