SharePoint 2016 Step By Step Installation

Before installing, you must install SQL and add an active directory role, so that you can create a separate user to run SharePoint and SQL.

I have already configured SQL and installed SharePoint 2016.

Let's get started,

  1. Install the Pre-requisites. On SharePoint ISO, click Pre-requisite installer and if you are connected with the internet, it will automatically download and install all the required prerequisites.

  1. Wait while prerequisites are getting installed.

  3. After restarting the machine, we will run SharePoint Set-up. It will ask for Product key.
    I have Trial key for 180 days (NQGJR-63HC8-XCRQH-MYVCH-3J3QR). Enter it and click Continue.
