Running the MIM SharePoint Foundation 2013 Configuration Script Notes:

The PowerShell script included below was obtained from the original Connector Space blog post by Anthony Marsiglia located at: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/connector_space/2014/09/23/sharepoint-foundations-2013-configuration-script/

The script provided in this document is updated to include remarks on how to manually perform some of the script’s actions, thereby simplifying code review. Additionally, search and replace document variables used throughout this document are incorporated into the script to customize the installation script for your environment.

During script processing PowerShell will display the following Warning message which can be ignored:

WARNING: The Windows Classic authentication method is deprecated in this release and the default behavior of this cmdlet, which creates Windows Classic based web application, is obsolete. It is recommended to use Claims authentication methods. You can create a web application that uses Claims authentication method by specifying the AuthenticationProvider parameter set in this cmdlet. Refer to the http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=234549 site for more information. Please note that the default behavior of this cmdlet is expected to change in the future release to create a Claims authentication based web application instead of a Windows Classic based web application.

When copying and pasting the script to Notepad, be sure to verify that all " quotes copy correctly. Additionally, ensure the line containing "STS#0" (open quote, letters STS, pound, zero, close quote) is properly typed and does not contain special characters.

You should not experience PowerShell errors (Errors appear in red text) during execution of this script. If you do experience errors, review the error message and resolve accordingly. Rerunning the script may cause other errors to occur due to partial completion during the first run.

Finally, be patient, the script may take several minutes to complete its processing and at times may appear as if it is not running.
