Installing Windows Share Point Services with a MLUI under Windows 2008 R2 (64Bit) using an MS-SQL Database

14. November 2009
Welcome everybody.
Today I would like to show you how to install the Windows Share Point Services 3.0 with an Multi-Language User Interface under Windows 2008 R2 using an external MS-SQL Database.
3. Download SP2 for the just downloaded Language Pack (it is not possible to install the SP2 for an Language Pack without installing the Language Pack first – I didn’t find an integrated version on the Microsoft Homepage) (e.g. German: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=2C2B6CAF-B46D-45EB-AC4D-DEAAA48C3A2C&displaylang=de)
4. Now you have to prepare the Windows 2008 R2 Server for WSS 3.0
a. Install the Web Server Role with the following features:

Webserver Roles 2
Webserver Roles 3
b. Also you have to add the Feature “.NET Framework 3.5.1”

5. The next step is to create a new SQL-Database on you SQL Server with a useful name (like SharePoint_Config).
ATTENTION: It is really important to change  the sorting to “Latin1_General_CI_AS_KS_WS” otherwise the Database will not be usable!!
Furthermore you have to grant an AD-User “DB-Owner rights” for the just created Database. Moreover this user must have the rights to “Log on as a Service” and “Log on as a batch job” – both can either be configured by using a group-policy or by modifying the local security settings.
6. After you installed all necessary roles/features and created User/Database you can start with the WSS Installation:
a. Accept the license agreement

b. Now choose „Advanced“. This is really important because otherwise it will not be possible to choose an SQL-Database-Server – instead the Windows Internal Database will be used.

c. At the next screen it is again really important to choose “Web Front End” instead of the default selection “Stand-alone”.

After selecting „Web Front End“ start the installation with „Install Now”
d. At the end of the installation start the Configuration Wizard

e. Just click on Next

f. Accept the following warning with “Yes”

g. Now choose „No, I want to create a new farm”

h. Insert the name of your MS-SQL-Database-Server, the name of the Database and the created user with the configured password.

i. In the next screen you can change the Port of the SharePoint Central Administration Web-Page and choose an authentication method.

j. After this an overview of the chosen Configuration is displayed. With a click on „Next“ the configuration starts.

k. When the configuration was successful the following information’s will be displayed.

l. When you now click on finish the SharePoint-Administration-Website should be launched and ask you for administrative login information’s. Log-In with an Administrator-Account – now the Administration-Website is visible. Just close the Website: We will now install the Multi-Language-User interface.
i. Run the SharePointLanguagePack Setup – there is no configuration needed – just accept the license.

ii. When the installation is finished remove the checkbox and choose finish.

iii. Now Service Pack 2 has to be installed for the Language Pack – start with accepting license.
iv. When the Configuration Wizard pops-up click on Next and accept the restart of some services with “Yes”

At the end again a Successful Configuration Dialog will be displayed and the Administration-Web-Page is opened.
7. Finished 🙂
You can now create a SharePoint Website and choose a language for this Website. BUT it is not possible (or better: I didn’t find a solution for it) to display a Website in two language. So you have to choose at the Website CREATION in which language the Website will be displayed!!
