SUMMARY

Although installing the programs that are listed in the "Applies to" section on the same server may be a good testing environment, we do not recommend this practice if a company is going to use these services to their fullest capacity.

Microsoft Office SharePoint Portal Server 2003 is very CPU intensive with its crawling and indexing functions. Microsoft Office Project Server 2003 is just as intensive for its publishing and VWnotify services.

Note Running these services at the same time on the same server may create conflicts. For example, some of the conflicts that may occur include:
  • Excessive memory usage
  • Excessive paging to the hard disk drive
  • Service performance degradation
  • One service delaying the start of the other service

    6. On the Web Site Home Directory screen of the Web Site Creation Wizard, type the following text in the Path box, or click Browse:
      C:\Inetpub\Projectserver
      Note You must create the ProjectServer folder before you complete this step.
    7. Click Next.
    8. On the Web Site Permissions screen of the Web Site Creation Wizard, accept the default values of Read and Run scripts (such as ASP), and then click Next.

      4. Click OK to close Extend and Create Content Database.

    2. In the extended virtual servers list, click your Web site, and then click Next.
    3. Type the required information and use the same user account that you used in step 3f3, and then click Next.
    4. When the SharePoint Configuration Wizard has sufficient information to configure Windows SharePoint Services, click Next.
    5. Click OK when you receive the following message:
      The SharePoint Configuration Wizard will now close while Setup restarts. The wizard will restart momentarily.
    6. Write down the information that is provided by the SharePoint Configuration Wizard after the selected virtual server has been successfully configured because it contains the location of your SharePoint portal.
