  • On the Server settings page, enter the fully qualified domain name of the server and the base port. A deployment file will be generated automatically with all the settings configured.
If you require a specific setup, you can create and use a custom deployment file. If you want to do this, select Use an existing deployment file, and then enter the Deployment file location. Refer to deployment.xml reference for more information.

  • On the Database settings page, enter connection information to the SQL database that you installed and created before you installed FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint. Enter the Database connection string in the format <ServerName>\<DBInstanceName> (Example:\myinstance).

    To determine the database connection string: On the server where the SQL Server is installed, open SQL Server Configuration Manager from the Start menu. Under SQL Server Services, you see the SQL Server main service. The service name contains the connection string in parentheses.

    Enter the Database name and Database port. The database will be created when you complete the configuration wizard. Click Next.
