January 4, 2012 — 1 Comment

In the previous  (Configure SharePoint Fast Search 2010 Part 1 ) post we installed all the prerequisites for FAST Server and Installed FAST Search Server for SharePoint 2010
In this sections we are going to configure FAST Search Server in SharePoint 2010

1. Start | All Program | Microsoft FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint

configure_fast_search_server_2010_for_sharepoint

2. Welcome to the Microsoft FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint post-setup configuration wizard
     Click next to start the configuration

3. Select the deployment type

– Single Server stand alone
Install all FAST search server 2010 for SharePoint components on a single server

– Admin Server
Configure the admin server in a multiple server deployment. You can only have one admin server in the deployment

– Non-admin server
Configure a non-admin server in a multiple server deployment. Non-admin servers connect to an existing admin server.

4. Enter the user name and password for the FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint user. The user name must be an existing Windows account.

I enter the user name and password in the following format
Domain Name\User Name
Password

The message I get?  User Validation failed while installing FAST Search for SharePoint

user_validation_failed_installing_fast_search

 

Looks like FAST Search server will not accept domain\user name, the correct format would be
domain.com\user name

For example if you enter vsharepoint\admin it will not work but vsharepoint.com\admin will work

If server.domain.com is not working, try just the name of your DB Server
