How to Create a MOSS 2007 VPC Image: Part 11


Welcome to part 11 in a series of posts which describe how to create a Microsoft Office SharePoint Server
2007 (MOSS 2007) Virtual PC image for demos and development work. Last time, we looked at how to
configure the Internet Explorer 7 web browser security settings so that we can access the SharePoint
Central Administration site, as well as the MOSS 2007 portal site that we will create later. This time, we’ll
look at how to start a few of the important services required by MOSS 2007.
 
Part 11: Starting Services
 
If the SharePoint Central Administration website isn’t already open, select Start >
Administrative Tools > SharePoint 3.0 Central Administration, then click the Operations
tab:
 

 
On the Operations page, click the Services on server link, located under the Topology and
Services heading:

On the Services on Server page, go down to the listing of available services, locate Windows
SharePoint Services Help Search, then click the Start link located on the same row:
 

 
On the Configure Windows SharePoint Services Search Service Settings page, enter the
following information, then click the Start button:

Password: enter the administrator password

Password: enter the administrator password

Database name: should be pre-populated (WSS_Search_vpc02, in this case)
Database authentication: Windows authentication
Indexing Schedule: Daily, between 12AM and 1AM
 

 
After the Windows SharePoint Services Help Search service has been started successfully,
the Services on Server page should be displayed; go down to the listing of available services,
locate Office SharePoint Server Search, then click the Start link located on the same row:

on Server page should be displayed; go down to the listing of available services, locate Excel
Calculation Services, then click the Start link located on the same row:

After the Excel Calculation Services service has started successfully, the Services on Server
page should be displayed:
 

 
You should now have three MOSS 2007 services running properly (two search services and Excel
Services).
 
In Part 12, we’ll look at how to create a Shared Services Provider.

typo

Hi,

just a typo:

after opening the Services on server link on the operations tab, you mention to locate the:
"Windows SharePoint Services Help Search" which should be "locate Windows SharePoint Services Search", so w/o
the word help.

Error Starting WSS Search Service

When I try to start the service I get this error:

This server is not the indexer of this search application.

Any ideas on what the problem may be?

Not So Fast My Friend...at least on Windows Server 2008 RC0...

With apologies in advance to ESPN's Lee Corso, you will not be able start the Excel Service from the GUI. Instead
the following PowerShell (yes, I've gone over to the "dark side" and actually prefer it to CMD or BAT files) needs to
be run. Before you try to run it, make sure you've done the one-time Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned in
PowerShell:

Set-Alias stsadm $env:CommonProgramFiles"\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\BIN\STSADM.EXE"

stsadm -o provisionservice -action start -servicetype


"Microsoft.Office.Excel.Server.ExcelServerSharedWebService,Microsoft.Office.Excel.Server, Version = 12.0.0.0,
Culture = neutral,PublicKeyToken = 71e9bce111e9429c"

iisreset /noforce

Proper credit for finding the fix goes to: http://blog.davidohara.net/2007/09/12/installation-issues-with-sharepoint-
