Building a Hyper-V Environment for SharePoint Prototype – Part 3

In my previous post, I covered the installation of SQL Server 2016 SP1 for our Hyper-V environment. After that is completed, we are ready to install SharePoint Server 2016. That’s what I’ll be covering here. Firstly, you need to download a copy of the software. At the time of writing this post, SharePoint Server 2016 is available from Microsoft. That’s the version I’ve downloaded for installation on the VM.

Installing the Prerequisites

To start the installation, double click on the “officeserver.img” file that you downloaded:

Moving a VM- 100 Ways to Skin a Cat

I love technology-   ALL TECHNOLOGY.  This includes loving my Mac Air and loving my Microsoft Surface Pro 4.  I’ve recently went back to a Mac when I joined Delphix, trimming down the power I had on my Surface Pro 4, knowing the content I was providing would be required to run on hardware with lesser resources.


VMware price changes could be perfect for Oracle VM uptake…

It’s not very often you see Oracle looking like the cheap option, but Oracle VM has always been pretty attractive on that score. :)

The latest information about VMware vSphere 5.0 pricing sounds like the perfect cue for Oracle to start another big push on the virtualization front, as I’m sure a lot of VMware customers will be swallowing hard as they read the new pricing model. It certainly makes Oracle VM sound even more attractive than it did before.

If Oracle could just get Oracle VM 3.0 out of the door, it might be able to make some serious inroads into the to VMware user base.






Oracle VM [not] running inside VirtualBox… (update)

I mentioned a few days ago I was having trouble running Oracle VM inside VirtualBox. I had tried with multiple versions of VirtualBox (including the latest 4.0.8), so I finally decided that is must be an issue with the host OS (Fedora 14).

Today I worked up the enthusiasm and trashed my server by replacing the host OS with CentOS 5.6. Regarding Oracle VM and VirtualBox, the news is good. I now have a functioning OVM installation inside a VirtualBox VM, so I can get back to playing with OVM again.

I don’t know exactly what the problem was, but for the moment I’m going to bury my head in the sand and think happy thoughts. I’ve wasted far to much time with this already. :)
