Create SharePoint basic installation accounts

Two accounts are required for the basic installation of SharePoint.

SharePoint Farm Setup account

The farm setup account is a dedicated account that will be used for installation of the SharePoint binaries on each server. The account is also used during basic configuration of SharePoint.
Do not use an existing domain administrator account or your own domain account as a local administrator on the server during the installation. The account is granted specific rights during the installation of SharePoint on the servers in the farm. It is not desired to grant those rights to your own account or a standard domain administrator account. It’s best to keep a dedicated account during installation or when you would like to add a new server to the farm in a later stadium.
For example it might be used to run the Windows SharePoint Services Timer
Account nameRights
  • Member of the local administrator group of each SharePoint server in the farm
  • Login account on the SQL Server with the server roles
    • dbcreator
    • security administrator
Make corp\shpSetup Local admin on SHP01

  2. Start the Windows Server Manager
  3. Go to Configuration > Local Users and Groups > Groups
  4. Double click on the Administrators Group
  5. Click Add

  7. Follow the default steps to add the account and then logoff from the server.
Make corp\shpSetup a Login on SQL01
  1. Login to the SQL01 server with an local administrator account that is a member of the SQL Server role sysadmin
  2. Start SQL Server Management studio
  3. Create a connection to the SQL instance where you will create SharePoint databases. (In my environment I use a named instance: SQL01\MSSQL01)
  4. Click New Query
  5. Copy below SQL Script to create the Login corp\shpSetup with the needed rights for the SharePoint installation.
    EXEC sp_addsrvrolemember @loginame = N'CORP\shpSetup', @rolename = N'dbcreator' GO
    EXEC sp_addsrvrolemember @loginame = N'CORP\shpSetup', @rolename = N'securityadmin'
  6. Close SQL Server Management studio logoff from the server.
