Installing SharePoint Server 2016 – Part 2

Its time to install SharePoint 2016.  SharePoint Server 2016 is the next generation of Micorosft SharePoint product which target hybrid deployments with Office365.  Cloud Search service application has been introduced to index On-Premises Content stored in SharePoint 2013, 2010 or even 2007.  The index will reside in SharePoint Online which reduce the need for storage and management of index.  Users in Office365 will be able to find content from Office365 or on-premises. 

Integration with Office365 include the ability to redirect my sites to OnDrive in SharePoint online.  App Launchers allows users in Office365 to access on-premises sites. 

Other major improvement include the removal of User Profile Synchronization Service.  Microsoft has decided to go back to set Active Directory Import as default method to synchronize profiles to SharePoint.  Microsoft Identity Manager 2015 or MIM can be used as an external tool to synchronize projects to SharePoint. 

There has been serious changes in the business intelligence front where Excel Services have been repalced with Excel in Office Online Server 2016.  You would need to setup trust with your BI Servers (Analysis Services) to Office Online servers to provide data refresh using PowerPivot and PowerView.

Before we go to next step.  Let’s first disable loopback check.  Run the following PowerShell

New-ItemProperty HKLM:\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa -Name “DisableLoopbackCheck” -value “1” -PropertyType dword

The best pratice for production farm is not to disable it.  Use the proper host name approach for production.

I will be running the configuration wizard as this is a dev farm.
