Installing SharePoint2013 on Windows 2012 Server With SQL Server 2012: Part1

More Information about  hardware and software requirements on Sharepoint 2013 from the following Microsoft TechNet article; http://technet.microsoft.com/library/cc262485(office.15).aspx

The setup environment will comprise of the following;
  • Windows 2012 Server Release Candidate running SQL 2012 RTM

Installing SQL 2012  on Windows 2012 Server:

If you don’t have your Active Directory in place for your test environment, you can follow my step by step guide in Configuring Active Directory (AD DS) in Windows 2012.

For SQL,  created an account in Active directory for the SQL Server Service Account. This should be a standard domain user account which will be used to run the MSSQLSERVER service on your SQL server. e.g. DOMAIN\sp_sqluser.  If you are installing from this account, this account will require Local Administrative Privileges.

installation of SQL 2012 using our newly created SQL server service account.

If you are like me and went ahead and installed SQL 2012 without installing .NET Framework 3.5 you will receive errors on failed components, notably, the Database Engine Services and Management Tools.
As noted in the Hardware and Software Requirements for Installing SQL Server 2012 MSDN article, .NET 3.5 SP1 is a requirement for SQL Server 2012 when you select Database Engine, Reporting Services, Replication, Master Data Services, Data Quality Services, or SQL Server Management Studio, and it is no longer installed by SQL Server Setup.  You will need to install this prior to install SQL 2012.
To do so, Navigate to the Server Manager Dashboard, , Click on Add roles and features and add the .NET 3.5 Features.

Select Role-based or feature-based installation option.

Click Next
By pass the Select server roles screen by click Next.
In the Select features screen, select .NET Framework 3.5 Features.

Click Next and then Install.
If you receive the following warning, “Do you need to specify an alternate source path? Make sure your Windows 2012 media is mounted and ready.

Once the .Net Framework 3.5 which include .NET 2.0 and 3.0 have been installed, we can proceed with the installation steps for SQL Server 2012.
Insert the SQL Server 2012 media and from the SQL Server Installation Center click on Installation.

Then click on New SQL Server stand-alone installation or add features to an existing installation.

Click OK when the setup support rules have succeeded.

In the next screen, select your SQL Server Setup Role. In this instance, we are selecting SQL Server Feature Installation.

Click Next
Select the required features.

Click Next
The Installation rules will then appear.  If the installation rules succeeded, click Next to continue.
In the Instance Configuration screen, keep Default Instance selected.

Click Next.
The Disk Space Requirements screen will then appear, hopefully confirming with a green tick.

Click Next.
Specify the SQL server service account that we had created earlier.

Click Next
In the Database configuration specify your SQL Server administrators, and make any changes to data directories as necessary.

Click Next
If you had selected the Reporting Services previously, you will be greeted with the below screen.  As we are installing Reporting Services SharePoint Integrated Mode, our only option is to Install only.

Click Next
The Error Reporting screen will then be displayed.

Click Next
The Installation Configuration rules will run and note any warnings or failures.

If everything is Ok, Click Next to proceed.
The below all familiar summary screen is displayed.  This is your last chance to double check your options and configuration.

If you are happy with the above, Click Install
You will eventually reach a screen saying that the installation was successful.
A few new tiles in relation to SQL will appear in the Windows 2012 Metro UI and you can launch SQL Management Studio to confirm a successful installation.
