August 2012 CU for SP2012 is working for me and isn't my issue (well i'm ignoring the error per your changeset
My qu above is badly written and hopefully this adds more detail.
Background: I am trying to use
TeamCity from Jetbrains to automate my DTAP environments (i.e. create a full fresh daily Continuous Integration (CI) environment, this will create my VM's on ESX using PowerCli, build my SQL Servers from scratch (including setting up Always on Availability
Groups), then I'm using AutoSPInstaller to install my 6 VM SP2010 farm, I then to FS4SP (outstanding) and K2 (outstanding) & automate out the build of my SharePoint/environment assets).
AutoSPInstaller for a remote Parallel build needs to be run from 1 of the SP servers (either a WFE or App server). The problem is that my build server is a TeamCity box and not 1 of the WFE/App servers. I can run the AutoSPInstallerLaunch.bat
or AutoSPInstallerMain.ps1 file with command line argument using wither "Invoke-Command" (pref) or psexec
\\WFE1 "d:\sp\AutoSPInstallerMain.ps1 d:\sp\AutoSPInstallerInput.xml". So this allows me to run the setup and it's fired from my build server and installed correctly.
Problem: Issue is I need to know when it's complete, Also I need to know variables so I can do additional post AutoSPInstaller steps.
Initial Hypothesis: I don't know when to move to the next step in my build so I either pause for a predefined delayed time (not great as it may fail and I could run to early or leave way to big a gap) or I need to periodically
ping SP2010 to see when it's been completed (not great as it may fail)
Resolution: For now I'm going to Pause for 120 minutes after I kick of AutoSPInstaller.
