I am trying to get a sharepoint 2016 preview environment up and running for evaluation purposes. I just happen to have never installed a sharepoint farm before so this is the environment I am learning with. Additionally I am using Azure to host a virtual network with VMs.
I have gotten basically everything provisioned and installed seemingly correctly up to the initial farm configuration point. After that seems to be installing a web application in sharepoint - this is where I'm having trouble. I get an error when I do so (and I don't know much about this error either).
My thought is I have messed up the accounts in some way. I've read all about how you need different service accounts, however different tutorials will explain this differently and since I don't really have any AD administration experience I am totally in the dark on how to properly setup these accounts. Specifically for sharepoint I am also unsure when to use each one (the tutorials sometimes seem to forget to tell you when to log out/log in as a different account).
Anyway here are the tutorials I am using:
Set up virtual network in Azure and get a server up with AD:http://www.learningsharepoint.com/2015/08/27/step-by-step-create-sharepoint-2016-farm-with-azure-virtual-machines/
Could anyone shed any light on the proper way the necessary accounts should be setup and used?
Also, I am doing a "single server farm" install.
