Once you click on “Install”, the prerequisites will be installed and your DC Server is ready to add users.
Add new user accounts to the domain
As in on-premise installation we will add 4 users to this domain
- “sp_farm” to manage the SharePoint farm
- “sp_farm_db” to have sysadmin rights on SQL Server instances.
- “sp_install” to have domain administration rights needed for installing roles and features
- “sqlservice” to have an identity that SQL instances can run as
sp_install user configuration
We will specifically take this user siince there are some extra steps required to configure this user. The other 3 users are simple user creations. From “Action” –> “New” –> “User”:
Add “sp_install” to the Domain Admin Group as shown below:
Go to “Domain” –> “Properties” –> “Security Tab” then click the “Advanced” button then select the “Pronciple” link then type “sp_install” as shown in the following procedure.
