I'm just curious about the steps required to install Sharepoint 2013 using SQL Server Authentication. Also if there are any drawbacks that i might not be aware of.
Here are some steps i currently think are required for installing using SQL Authentication and i would just like them confirmed and added too if i'm missing something.
- Ensure "mixed-mode" auth is active on the SQL Server
- Create a SQL login in the SQL Server with following roles: DBCreator & SecurityAdmin
- Run the "New-SPConfigurationDatabase" SharePoint PowerShell command on the web server using the -DatabaseCredentials flag to pass the SQL Login details
