The specified user [USER NAME] is a local account. Local accounts should only be used in stand alone mode
SP is right. advanced configuration allows the creation of a farm in which we can then connect other servers, such as for indexing, sending mail or other stuffs .. and of course, a local account on the machine where we are installing the product is not able to "switch" between a server and the other becouse is not a domani account.
But if we are sure we use put everything on this local server. We can create the farm with PowerShell.Below are the steps.
- Under the Start Menu, browse to Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Products. Right-click on SharePoint 2010 Management Shell and choose Run as administrator
- Run command New-SPConfigurationDatabase
- Follow prompts and specify values for the farm. You will be prompted to pick a user to data access, that is where you can use a local account. ( Or specify them in the parameters. e.g.,New-SPConfigurationDatabase –DatabaseName “SharePoint2010_Config” –DatabaseServer “<db server>” –AdministrationContentDatabaseName “SharePoint2010_Admin_Content” –Passphrase (ConvertTo-SecureString “pass@word1” –AsPlaintext –Force) –FarmCredentials (Get-Credential)
