Quick Tip: Complete Install

Posted by Christian Dam on February 16, 2008

Always choose the Complete Install option when installing MOSS servers in a farm environment. It will place all the binaries on the server which will allow you to easily change the roles of the server after the initial install.

A common blunder is to install Web Front-ends as Web Front-ends. It may seem like a good idea at the time but doing so will prevent you from placing the the query role on a Web Front-end since the needed binaries are missing. You cannot even add the missing binaries later without reinstalling the MOSS software.
