"As consultants in the SharePoint space we often threaten to write a build guide. But we never seem to have the time. Tight deadlines, rushed PM or customer requests, helping out a colleague in a pinch ... there's just never enough time.

So I hear about Andreas's guide from a friend and decide to give it a try.

I could not have been more pleased. This is the most comprehensive SharePoint build guide I have seen. He really covers it all, even the PowerShell scripts are included and I learned a thing or two from his code as well.

I highly recommend this guide! It will save you so much time and headache whether you're building a development or production environment.

Thanks for all the hard work Andreas, the SharePoint community benefits in a major way from dedicated folks like you."


This Material vs. AutoSPInstaller

Features & BenefitsThis MaterialAutoSPInstaller
80+ p. Documentation  
Assisted, step-by-step PowerShell scripts  
Troubleshooting Tips & Help  
Preparation Checklist  

AutoSPInstaller is a good tool but lacks a thorough documentation, including planning, preparing, installing and configuring a SharePoint farm.

It's missing a step-by-step assistance for PowerShell scripts, which is required by a lot of beginners and intermediates.

Additionally, SharePoint specific Troubleshooting help and a 30 points preparation checklist are missing too which helps to prevent problems and to quickly find solutions if you're stuck.


Review #2

Daryl Sharpe | CEO of TEDI-Inc Daryl Sharpe

"I have been working in the SharePoint community for military, government, and commercial clients since the inception of MOSS 2007 performing advanced configurations, architecture, and .NET development.

During the early years of operating I was introduced to Andreas Glaser’s SharePoint material and have since relied on its accuracy and step by step displays to create both simple and complex SharePoint farms. His PowerShell scripts are accurate, easy to read, and assisted me in not only implementing configurations but also learning and understanding PowerShell features and capabilities.

Much of my evolution has been heavily influenced through the exposure of Glaser’s PowerShell which has allowed me to expand and grow into a more effective enterprise solution architect and .NET developer.

I consistently recommend these SharePoint tutorials to students, interns, and other resources that work with me in the SharePoint community. There is no other SharePoint resource I rely on more."

Willem de Vries - Hobéon Management Consult

What were your needs?
We were investigating a SharePoint system to use for knowledge management.

How did the material solve your needs?
It helped us greatly in getting an on-premise installation up and running.

What results did you get?
Thanks to your documentation we could compare our on-premise SharePoint system with Microsoft's SharePoint online. We decided that Microsoft's offering had a lot of advantages for us (financially, technically) and the disadvantages didn't outweigh them.
So we've switched to SharePoint Online. We made an informed decision, thanks to you.


Dale Moore

What were your needs?
I needed to install SP Server for the first time and wanted a simple guide with screenshot based instructions.

How did the material solve your needs?
It provided exactly that!

A clean, seamless and easy to follow guide for someone with limited technical know-how, such as me!

What were your needs?
Learning installation techniques using manual method and PowerShell.

How did the material solve your needs?
Detailed walk through and well documented scripts help better understanding of instalation process and running.

What results did you get?
Working farm using Hyper-V on test environment. Permissions model took a bit of time to unravel. It works fine using best practices, just seems overly complex. Seems Microsoft could do better on this aspect.

What results did you get?
Great.. I successfully performed two SharePoint 2013 installations,one for dev / test environment and other minimal Production environment. I used the scripted powershell scripts which ran like a charm and often referred to well documented manuals. Elated that I have this material.

Anonymous review  (The customer allowed to post the review but wished not to post his name.)

What were your needs?
Working as a Systems Engineer, I needed detailed documentation to quickly deploy many different type of SharePoint deployment.

How did the material solve your needs?
With this documentation, I can follow easily and quickly to deploy any type of solution requested.

What could be improved?
On the first try, I was able to quickly deploy a sandbox solution and a personal lab. The scripts worked particularly well and stopped me from spending hours of troubleshooting and research.




  • January: Added detailed SQL Server collation settings guide


  • September: Added step-by-step Development Virtualization with Hyper-V or VMware guide


  • September: Updated software requirements
  • July: Added Service Pack 2 and installation notes
  • July: Added Cumulative Updates and installation notes
  • July: Updated Service Application Accounts & Software requirements
  • April: Added preparation checklist
  • March: Enhanced some PowerShell scripts


I have a specific scenario, does it help me?

Yes! And here's why: Each part of the document is modular. If you just need a Windows Server and SharePoint that's OK. If you also need accounts planning, SQL Server and several SharePoint servers just add the parts to your individual installation process.

I'm a beginner and very new to SharePoint, is the book for me?

Yes. You'll get clear, easy to follow steps and lots of pictures starting with preparation and ending with a successful installation.

I'm experienced with SharePoint, is the book for me?

I've written the book with experienced SharePoint administrators and developers in mind too. There are lots of topics including PowerShell automation or accounts and permission planning for Web and Service Applications.


Doesn't a book go out of date as soon as it's published?

This is part of the reason why I made the book digital instead of hard-copy. I plan to update the eBook every few months so that you always have the most up to date information.

Does this material include Scripts for creating Service Applications?

Yes! There are scripts to create every Service Application like e.g. User Profiles and Search except Office Web Apps and PowerPivot.


Does this material cover high availability?

Although you can install multiple Web- and Application Server it doesn't discuss high availability or multiple SQL Server (clustering or mirroring).

Does this material cover Kerberos and SPNs?



I still have a question...

Sure just write me an eMail with your question and I will answer as soon as possible.


Risk Free!

"If I don't like the material can I get a refund?"

It'll be a piece of cake! I'm not here to swindle you out of your cash, I'm here to help you in any way I can. If that means a quick and painless cancellation of your purchase, then that's what you'll get. Just send me an email within 30 days and I'll refund your payments pronto, no fuss no hard feelings. But let's be honest here, you're going to love this material ;)
