Installation Scenarios supported by Microsoft for SharePoint server 2013.

Sometimes we do call MS professional and premium support to get technical assistance on some of the issue we face in our development, Sys-test, Pre-production and Production environments and Microsoft Support engineer might have told you that this configuration design is not supported.

We should all be familiarise with the what kind of installation/configuration scenarios Microsoft support for SharePoint Server 2013.

MS KB outline those scenarios, but I have outlined those for your reference.

The following SharePoint Server 2013 installation scenarios are not supported:

·     You try to install SharePoint Server 2013 on a drive that is formatted by using Resilient File System (ReFS). In this scenario, the installation fails, and the following error message is logged in the Setup log file:
datetime::[940] Catalyst file system check failed: The path root D:\ is not NTFS
datetime::[940] Showing message Title: 'Setup Warning', Message: 'The install location must be on a drive formatted with NTFS. Select another drive.'
datetime::[940] Message returned: 1
·         You install SharePoint Server 2013 in a workgroup.
·         You install SharePoint Server 2013 on a domain controller. This scenario is supported only for development configurations and not for production configurations.
·         You install SharePoint Server 2013 on Windows Web Server.
·   You install SharePoint Server 2013 on a virtual machine (VM) that uses Dynamic Memory. For more information about best practice configurations for SharePoint Server 2013 and virtual machines, go to the following Microsoft TechNet website:

So guys plan wise for your SharePoint Server 2013 Installation which is supported.

Applies to: SharePoint Server 2013 and SharePoint Server foundation 2013.
