I tried to install a Sharepoint 2010 on a single Server2008 machine. No AD, no domain or anything in this direction. I just want to create 5 users, and test a little bit. There are some problems, I think I know how to fix some, but not all:
- When I want to access the machine from outside (for test purposes) I have to make sure the computer name matches the domain A record. I think I can achieve this by setting the computername to e.g. subserver, and the DNS suffix to e.g. contoso.com -->
by this the machine name should be subserver.contoso.com and if I configure the A record of my webpage to point the test machine IP, I should be fine...
- User-Mail Issue
When I create new users in sharepoint, using existing simple windows account (like UserA, UserB) everything works nearly fine. The only problem for simple tests, the e-mail field in Sharepoint does not get filled (there is no E-Mail field in the normal createUser
dialog in Server2008). But for some tests, like schedule a meeting and invite people, you need an e-mail set.
I looked into AD (AM) or AD LDS, but this seems way overkill, and I do not even know if it would work. I tried to manually add the e-mails into sharepoint, by editing user preferences (there are a ton of posts about this), but it took me two hours, and the
result was nothing.
