Hi Brian, Hi all.
Brian i would like to thank you for all the hard work you have done and keep doing for this project. I've installed some production farms so far (v.2.5) and im pretty happy with the process. I had to tweak some settings to comply with the local comany rules,
but thats the beauty of powershell :-)
As i mentioned i've created some farms in the past and i'm ok in updating the binaries to the latest stable cu by hand. But the portals are moving forward and i need to add different components to the current installation:
- New service accounts
- New web applications
- New service applications
Your script is doing all the hard and important work at the initial install (AutoSPInstaller) but i would like to keep the environment a clean as possible and all the little details you do and we normally would do by hand is stuck in your
scripts. If we make changes to the farm i would like to have the Config XML
up-to-date for recovery scenarios. The main question is:
How to i update the current farm with more feature and i keep geting all the benefits from your scripted setup?
During the creation of a new web app we need to create a new service account. Your script is taking care of all the things around this user like creating a profile and the web app is getting a proper name on the right sql server alias and the office web
apps are granted access to the databases. All the magic you are doing for us. I'm afraid, we will mess up the farm if we keep adding stuff by hand.
Do you see any recommended
way to rerun your script in this scenario or run just a segment?
