Enter Your SQL Server Name in Single Server it can be your machine Name.  If you have installed Named instance you have to enter Machine\InstanceName

You can change the Farm Account after installation of SharePoint from Central Admin.

  1. Hi

    I am new to share point. We have a Single Windows 2012 server (in WorkGroup) with SQL 2008 R2 SP3 installed. Now I have installed SharePoint 2013 in that server, but unfortunately unable to complete the SharePoint product configuration as when I am typing in the database access account as the Admin account of the server, it is prompting the specified account is a local account. So how do I configure SharePoint in this scenario.

    Regards
    Zahid
