#SP2016 Technical Preview installing as I write this…

September 6, 2015 Leave a comment

Just a quick post to say that I am installing the SP2016 Technical Preview on my personal Hyper-V environment as I write this.

So lets look at the specs I am using.

Host: Windows 8 Pro, Core I7-4770 (3.4GHz Quad core with 8 logical CPU’s), 32GB RAM

SP2016 Install 2

NB: I haven’t gotten round to upgrading this PC to Windows 10 yet, but I will when the time is right.

Virtual Machines’s x 3:

  • VM001: Active Directory, 2CPU, 1024GB RAM, Windows Server 2012 R2
  • VM002: SQL Server 2014, 4CPU, 12288GB RAM, Windows Server 2012 R2
    • NB: I initially set it up with 2CPU & 8192GB RAM and it failed during the installation of the binaries just like SP2013 does when you install it with a lack of power
  • VM003: SharePoint 2016 TP, 2CPU, 12288GB RAM, Windows Server 2012 R2

All of this, with internal network switching setup and external access for patching etc…

Lastly, given that there is a lot of waiting about, I am watching the Last Ship on my Plex environment whilst I install 🙂

SP2016 Install

Stay tuned for more details…
