Installing and configuring a development environment

Getting ready

Create a virtual machine running Windows Server 2012 R2 with important updates installed. You can download and install SQL Server Developer Edition for free from Microsoft. Also, make sure you have an account set up with administrative privileges that you will use for the installation and configuration of SQL Server 2016 tabular mode. In my examples, I have a user named Admin set up as a local administrator.
