SharePoint on a Domain Controller Revisited

On Tuesday I wrote about installing SharePoint Foundation 2010 on my home windows server, which also acts as a domain controller, and I concluded by saying that I’d encountered performance issues as a result of that (non-recommended) setup.

Turns out, the performance issues were a complete coincidence, and everything is now running just fine.

The problem I was experiencing was that two of my three forward DNS servers weren’t working correctly. Now that my service provider has corrected their issue, everything is great.


For a small setup like mine, I’d say go ahead and install SQL Server Express and SharePoint on the domain controller. It works great!
