2010 Foundation error creating site collections

Feb 9, 2011 at 2:52 PM

I am using autoSP to script my 2010 foundation install.  I am stuck with getting the site collection part to work.  The error I get in the log is 


AutoSPInstallerFunctions.ps1:1029 char:67+            

$Culture = [System.Globalization.CultureInfo]::GetCultureInfo <<<< (([convert]::ToInt32($LCID)))    + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (:) [], MethodInvocationException    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : DotNetMethodException 

WARNING:  - Reminder/warning: You must install the " ()" Language Pack before you can create a site using LCID 


I have tried including and excluding the LCID element in my AutoSPInstallerInput.xml but the error is the same.

<SiteCollection siteUrl="" owner="domain\SPFarm" name="ACME" description="ACME Training Site" CustomTemplate="false" Template="STS#0" LCID="1033" />

If I use the same values for New-SPSite via powershell they work fine

PS C:\Users\SPInstall> New-SPSite -Url "" -OwnerAlias "Infor24-DC4\SPFarm" -Description "ACME Training Site" -Language "1033" -Name "ACME TRN" -Template "STS#0"

Is there something I am missing here to make this part work for 2010 Foundation?

Hi there, since AutoSPInstaller is not intended (nor has ever been tested by me) for Foundation, I will leave it to some other folks on this forum to provide feedback. Have a look at this post for a start:
