So I now am able to successfully install Sp2010 with SP1 and the latest February Cumulative updates without a hitch. I even have the service accounts configured the way I want. What I noticed about the User Profile Sync Service account is that
what I put in the input.xml is different from what is being shown in CA under the Security / Configure Service Accounts page. I will copy and paste a few pieces of my input.xml file and maybe someone can explain why this has happened. I do not want to
change anything until I have more information.
At the start of the input.xml file, there is a "Managed Accounts" section. The first one has a CommonName of "spservice" and I assign a service account of SP_Services (as an example).
Down about 2/3 of the way, there is this section that starts with UserProfileServiceApp and one of the parameters is SyncConnectionAccount and I use a service account similar to SP_Profile.
Now when I go into the Security / Configure Service Accounts page in CA, the account linked to the User Profile Synchronization Service is the SP_Services account. Do I need to add the SP_Profile account to the managed accounts portion of
the script to resolve this or am I misunderstanding some of what the script is doing? I want the script to basically do what needs to be done and I not have to go in and fix stuff like this if I can modify the script to maybe do that.
