Feature Request: Ability to handle multiple Service Apps of a specific type

Dec 4, 2012 at 8:23 PM

Currently it appears that AutoSPInstaller is only designed to handle one of each of the service apps. In some cases we may need to create multiple service apps of a particular type. Would be great if the script queried for the specific service app node and then looped through all nodes for that service app. Example if I wanted to create two BCS Service Apps, I could configure multiple BusinessDataConnectivity nodes under ServiceApps.

Is this still a limitation in AutoSPInstaller? That is, can you only create one of each service apps?

(I'm too lazy to test it manually right now...)

You can create multiple Search Service Applications, for sure. However I don't think the rest of the service apps support multiple instances via AutoSPInstaller (and AFAIK it's not really recommended either).
