This document details how to install and test an SDL Tridion Content Manager 2013 install on Windows 2012 with a SQL Server database.
Run Windows update again to get the latest updates for SQL Server
In the next steps, we will optionally backup your work thus far then create the two database schemas required by the Content Manager.
Now's a good time to make a copy (or two) of your VM as a backup and to maybe test different versions of SDL Tridion. Suspend or turn off the guest (VM) and then copy the VM's entire folder on your host machine, giving it a name you'll remember
Start PowerShell (keyboard Start Key, then type out "PowerShell") as an Administrator.
If needed, run:Set-ExecutionPolicy AllSigned
Navigate to your installation scripts folder then run:
& '.\Install Content Manager database.ps1'(e.g. PS C:\[Tridion_Install]\Database\MSSQL> & '.\Install Content Manager database.ps1')
Follow the prompts in the script then enter "Y" to confirm.
