Sharepoint Server setup on trial of Server 2019 (Photo-notes)

Needed to spin up a vanilla Sharepoint Server in a test environment.

1.Installed Trial version Server 2019 (just showing what is installed prior to kick off )

2. Installed SQL Server 2017 Developer Edition
3. Install SSMS 17.9.1
Install Sharepoint 2019
New Farm
Error! Didn’t work!!
Double Check Settings? Still not working


After consulting with Google 🙂 my error was common……the fix = https://piyushksingh.com/2018/03/26/sharepoint-local-accounts-should-only-be-used-in-stand-alone-mode/


As stated in the above link “” we needed to specify the Server Role, SingleServerFarm for parameter, -localserverrole”

Just follow those directions and it will all work out!
All Set-up!
