How to add WFE Sharepoint 2013

Hi, Thanks for great script.

I've provisioned an application server but want to add a single WFE to the script. I currently run the script from the app server and provision attributes are set to true.

So if I wish to rerun the script am I correct that I need to add the servername of the app server instead of 'true' for the provisioned services, and then add the WFE servername somewhere? Where in the XML do I add the WFE?

Did you ever get the answer for this?

Hi guys,

There is no single place where you need to add in order to add an additional WFE. The key are the fields that are called Provision.
In these fields
true = will be provisioned on every server you run the script on
localhost = will be provisioned on every server you run the script on (dont use this on multi server builds)
servername1 = will be only provisioned on servername1
servername1 servername2 = will be provisioned only on server1 and server2

Once you edit the xml simply run the script on the additional server.

I have posted two XML Examples at the page below:

Its a little difficult to explain, let me know if it doesn't make sense.
