Disappointing – SharePoint 2013 single server install failures
SharePoint 2013 is now at RTM and available for preview. It’s disappointing that a default, single server install has issues that occur often and predictably, even on a clean Windows 2012 Server install. Of course, we expect errors and problems, especially with early release software. However, the default install should just work at this stage of the product lifecycle.
There are several blog posts that describe how to correct these issues. This is one of the better ones: http://squidpip.com/blog/sharepoint-2013-preview-configuration/.
Also, there’s a deployment guide from Microsoft which can be found here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30384 . Be prepared though, it’s 675 pages long!
