Installing and Configuring SharePoint 2010 through Powershell


Installing and Configuring SharePoint 2010 through Powershell Scripting

STEP1: Preparation

Download the SPModule and add the same folder location to the PSModulePath in Environmental variables of respective server as shown below:

 

 

#Restart the server before installing SP2010

Restart-Computer -force

 

STEP2: Installation. I have named this file as SP1.PS1.

====================================
SP1.ps1 [PowerShell -File "SP1.ps1"]

====================================

 

#Run the below script to install the pre-requisite and SharePoint binaries

 

Set-ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted -Force

Import-Module SPModule.misc

Import-Module SPModule.setup

Install-SharePoint -SetupExePath "C:SP2010Extractsetup.exe"

#Above is for the trail version so for license version PIDKey needs to be included as bellow

#Install-SharePoint -SetupExePath "C:SP2010Extractsetup.exe" -PIDKey "***************************************"

 

#Check if the installation is done properly by checking the services in service.msc

 

If (((Get-Service | Where {$_.Name -eq "SPAdminV4"}) -ne $null) -and ((Get-Service | Where {$_.Name -eq "SPTimerV4"}) -ne $null) -and ((Get-Service | Where {$_.Name -eq "FIMSynchronizationService"}) -ne $null))

{

Write-Host -foregroundColor Yellow "SharePoint 2010 installed successfully… `nNow the setup will configure the farm."

PowerShell -File "SP2.ps1"

}

Else

{

Write-Warning "SharePoint 2010  installation failed, please check the logs for the error."

}

STEP2: Configuration. I have named this file as SP2.PS1.

====================================
SP2.ps1

====================================

#Configure the farm

# In PowerShell we can not pass the password hardcoded, so we need to get the password in a text file and then read it from that. And the password in the file will be saved in secure string format. That file needs to be saved on all the servers.


#read-host -assecurestring | convertfrom-securestring | out-file C:cred.txt

#The above command create a file and store the password in encrypted form. NOTE: THIS NEEDS TO BE DONE BEFORE YOU START THE STEP2.
