Psconfig Steps at each task

Psconfig Steps at each task
           


check out What happens when we run the Post Setup configuration Wizard . After setup is run the post setup configuration wizard must be run to complete the process of either creating a new farm or joining a server to an existing farm.

Step 1 -      Initialize SharePoint products and technologies configuration

 Setup user account - The Setup user account is used to run the following:

·        Setup
·        SharePoint Products Configuration Wizard
·        Domain user account.
·        Member of the Administrators group on each server on which Setup is run.
·        SQL Server login on the computer that runs SQL Server.
·        Member of the following SQL Server roles:

·        dbcreator fixed server role

If you run Windows Power Shell cmdlets that affect a database, this account must be a member of the db_owner fixed database role for the database.
If you find an issue Connecting SharePoint to the SQL server. Create a UDL file and check for the  connectivity. For further information on UDL check the link below
