Help Through Configuration Process

Dec 16, 2015 at 6:32 AM
I am a newbie to FineBuild and I would love some guidance through the process.
First thing is, where exactly is the main place for changing the default configurations like server name and instance name?
For example I'v read in the documentation that the server name "relates to Process Id 1BB in the FineBuild1Preparation script", however, I didn't fully understand how to set it properly.
Another matter is, is it possible to customize SQL server installation for only some of the components and services (not full installation of SQL Server)? If so how would it be exactly?

Thanks in advance.

Sorry for the delay in replying.

If you look in the sample .bat files (such as SQLFineInstance.bat) you can see how parameters can be supplied to SQL FineBuild. The Wiki page FineBuild Setup Parameters has a list of all available parameters.

The parameters that control the install of the main SQL components are:
SetupSQLAS for Analysis Services
SetupSQLDB for SQL database engine
SetupSQLIS for Integration services
SetupSQLRS for Reporting Services
