Building a Base Deployment
This topic provides the sequence of tasks you perform to build a base deployment. The base deployment is the foundation of a Commerce Server distributed deployment. It contains the basic elements needed to perform the functions of a Commerce Server Web site.
Before you start the base deployment, make sure that you read the deployment requirements described in Deployment Requirements. Failing to follow the steps in this topic may cause an unknown and unsupported configuration of the deployment, such as the inability to connect to the server that is running SQL Server or to log on.
In a base deployment, you follow these steps:
Gather your hardware and equipment, wire your network, install the Windows operating system on all servers, and define your network settings. For more information, see Configuring the Commerce Server Network.
Set up your domain controllers for both tiers, the Web tier and the data tier. For more information, see Configuring a Domain Controller.
Configure your SQL Server database instances. In a base deployment there are four database servers you configure:
A clustered pair of production database servers
BizTalk non-clustered database server (optional)
Data Warehouse and Analytics non-clustered database server
For more information, see Configuring the Database Servers.
Configure the WSS or MOSS 2007 server. See the Commerce Server 2009 Installation and Configuration Guide at https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=139462.
Configure the business management server.
Perform steps 1 through 6 in Configuring the Business Management Server.
Grant Commerce Server service identities access to the databases. See Granting Access to the Commerce Server Databases.
Perform the remaining steps in Configuring the Business Management Server.
Configure the Web tier servers. For more information, see Configuring the Web Servers.
Complete the build out of the data tier. For more information, see Building the Data Tier.
Complete the build out of the Web tier. For more information, see Building the Web Tier.
For more information about the supported deployment scenarios, see Deployment Roadmap.
