      All of these user profiles have been imported and indexed for search within SharePoint Server 2010, with “contoso\administrator” granted administrator permissions.
      SharePoint Server 2010 has been configured in a “Complete” farm using Kerberos authentication and the default SQL Server 2008 instance for data, and has a site collection created using the Team Site template at and a FAST Search Center at
      Performance Considerations:
      • If possible, unpack and run the VM image on a separate, fast hard drive (7200 RPM or better) from the operating system of the host machine. If this is being done on a laptop, a second internal drive or external eSATA drive works best, though USB 2.0 (make sure it's 2.0, 1.1 is too slow) or Firewire is acceptable. For absolute best performance use a second internal SSD drive. Passwords for all users in the CONTOSO AD are "pass@word1" (remove quotes) (including the Administrator account).



  1. Start Hyper-V Manager from Control Panel -> Administrative Tools
  2. Confirm that the local host machine appears in the Hyper-V Manager list and select it if not already done
  3. Under Actions, click Virtual Network Manager.
  4. Confirm that you have created an Internal virtual network named “Internal”. Internal networks limit connectivity to only VMs and the host. If a suitable not, create one now using the following steps:
    1. Click on Virtual Network Manager in the Actions pane
    2. Choose New virtual network in the Virtual Networks pane
    3. Choose Internal from the type list and click Add
    4. Enter a name of Internal and click OK v. Start menu -> right-click Network –> Properties
    5. Click Change adapter settings
    6. Find the adapter with a description of Internal, right-click and choose Properties
    7. Double-click on Internet Protocol Version 4 and enter the following values:
      1. IP address:
      2. Subnet mask:
      3. Default gateway: (leave blank)
      4. Preferred DNS server:
    8. Click OK
  5. Close the Virtual Network Manager dialog.


  1. Under Actions, click Import Virtual Machine
  2. Use the Browse button to select the folder where the virtual machine package was extracted. Do not check
  3. Click Import and wait for the Import to complete – the import status will appear in the Operations column
  4. Select the newly imported virtual machine and click Settings in the right pane of the Hyper-V Manager
  5. Confirm (and correct if necessary) that the Network Adapter is connected to the Internal network from step 1d.
  6. Close the virtual machine Settings dialog.

    1 thing I would like to say is usually that before buying much more individual computer memory, consider the machine in which it may be installed. In case the machine can be running Windows XP, for instance, a memory ceiling is 3.25GB. Adding greater than this would essentially constitute a new waste. Make certain one's mother board can handle an upgrade quantity, as well. Great weblog post.
