Give the New Target a Name Note: this cannot be the same name you assigned to this Server…








Now go ahead and click Yes to reboot. Make sure you either have the BDM ISO or The VM set to boot to Network with DHCP Options enabled.

Provisioning Server 6 Install Guide



First we are going to install the Console Snap-in's







You will get this if you didn't have .Net 3.5 Installed first. Follow the below few screens to install it via Server Manger.



















Ok now that we have .Net Installed we can continue the Snap-in install





















So now that we have the Console Snap-in's installed, time to install the Server Components.

























We are assuming DHCP Services are running on a different server.



We are going to use either BDM (Boot ISO) or DHCP Options







Enter a new Database Name, Enter a Farm Name, Enter a Site Name, and Give a Collection Name. I usually use builtin Administrators







I recommend using a Domain Service Account that is Local Administrator to the Provisioning Server(s) And I always Check the Configure the Database for the account, I have had issues in the past if I didn't check this box.



Leave Defaults



Leave Defaults



Check the Box and Leave Defaults







I highly recommend Disabling the Windows Firewall on the Provisioning Servers









Got to love UAC
