What are the accounts and roles required in order to successfully install sharepoint 2010 server enterprise edn. in order to deploy an extranet successfully. Please do share good links that detail the same.


Thanks for the links. If it helps narrow it down:

  • I have a sharepoint server in a DMZ(public domain) and the SQL2008 server in the local domain.I do not really know as to what kind of topology this constitutes.
  • In addition I just need to create a web app and extend it to to use FBA in order to expose it to customers.

Hopefully you might be able to narrow down your advise based off of this.

I've converted this to a wiki since it is a good question but can't be definitively answered. As @Robert mentioned, this is a huge topic that depends a lot on your requirements. – Kit Menke Apr 9 '12 at 13:59
@KitMenke I have posted a comment giving the details of my requirements if it helps narrow it down. Thanks – user7400 Apr 9 '12 at 17:08

This is such a broad topic it is going to be very difficult to provide you with any guidance other than suggesting resources because it depends a lot on your requirements for things such as performance and security so giving you any advice is very difficult. So here is a list of resources that can help you find the answers you need.
