Wow, so the last post was pretty intense, wasn’t it? I think we are ready for the next one: installing SharePoint. To build this script I used the following sources: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/14582.sharepoint-2013-install-prerequisites-offline-or-manually-on-windows-server-2012-a-comprehensive-guide.aspx#Installing_the_Roles_and_Features_for_SharePoint_2013_on_Windows_Server_2012_Offline_with_PowerShell and http://blogs.msdn.com/b/uksharepoint/archive/2013/03/18/scripted-installation-of-sharepoint-2013-and-office-web-apps-server-from-the-field-part-2.aspx.

Since this is again a quite lengthly script we will split it up in steps.

Step A: enabling IIS and other features

This step enables a whole load of features on Windows that are required by SharePoint, including IIS. If a restart is required, the script will reboot after the setup of the features. Some times your machine might reboot more than once to complete the setup of all these features.

Write-Log -Verbose  "Step 6: Install SharePoint"
Import-Module ServerManager
#Add .Net 4.5 features
Add-WindowsFeature NET-WCF-HTTP-Activation45,NET-WCF-TCP-Activation45,NET-WCF-Pipe-Activation45
#Add the rest of the needed features for IIS role
$result = Add-WindowsFeature Net-Framework-Features,Web-Server,Web-WebServer,Web-Common-Http,Web-Static-Content,Web-Default-Doc,Web-Dir-Browsing,Web-Http-Errors,Web-App-Dev,Web-Asp-Net,Web-Net-Ext,Web-ISAPI-Ext,Web-ISAPI-Filter,Web-Health,Web-Http-Logging,Web-Log-Libraries,Web-Request-Monitor,Web-Http-Tracing,Web-Security,Web-Basic-Auth,Web-Windows-Auth,Web-Filtering,Web-Digest-Auth,Web-Performance,Web-Stat-Compression,Web-Dyn-Compression,Web-Mgmt-Tools,Web-Mgmt-Console,Web-Mgmt-Compat,Web-Metabase,Application-Server,AS-Web-Support,AS-TCP-Port-Sharing,AS-WAS-Support, AS-HTTP-Activation,AS-TCP-Activation,AS-Named-Pipes,AS-Net-Framework,WAS,WAS-Process-Model,WAS-NET-Environment,WAS-Config-APIs,Web-Lgcy-Scripting,Windows-Identity-Foundation,Server-Media-Foundation,Xps-Viewer
if($result.RestartNeeded -eq "Yes")
{
    Set-Restart-AndResume $global:script "7"
}

 

Step B: Installing SharePoint Prerequisites

SharePoint itself has a number of prerequisites; in this still we will install them all.

#Mount SharePoint iso
$mountresult = Mount-DiskImage -ImagePath $global:pathToSharePointISO -PassThru
$driveLetter = ($mountresult | Get-Volume).DriveLetter
Write-Log -Verbose  "Installing SharePoint PreReqs...."
$setupFile = $driveLetter+":\prerequisiteinstaller.exe"
$process = Start-Process $setupFile -PassThru -Wait -ArgumentList "/unattended /SQLNCli:$global:SharePoint2013Path\PrerequisiteInstallerFiles\sqlncli.msi /IDFX:$global:SharePoint2013Path\PrerequisiteInstallerFiles\Windows6.1-KB974405-x64.msu /IDFX11:$global:SharePoint2013Path\PrerequisiteInstallerFiles\MicrosoftIdentityExtensions-64.msi /Sync:$global:SharePoint2013Path\PrerequisiteInstallerFiles\Synchronization.msi /AppFabric:$global:SharePoint2013Path\PrerequisiteInstallerFiles\WindowsServerAppFabricSetup_x64.exe /KB2671763:$global:SharePoint2013Path\PrerequisiteInstallerFiles\AppFabric1.1-RTM-KB2671763-x64-ENU.exe /MSIPCClient:$global:SharePoint2013Path\PrerequisiteInstallerFiles\setup_msipc_x64.msi /WCFDataServices:$global:SharePoint2013Path\PrerequisiteInstallerFiles\WcfDataServices.exe"

 

Step C: Installing SharePoint

SharePoint is installed in this step from the ISO that the script mounts.

if($process.ExitCode -eq 0) {
        #install sharepoint
        Write-Log -Verbose  "Installing SharePoint...."
        $path = $driveLetter+":\Setup.exe"
        $sharePointInstallProcess = Start-Process -Wait -PassThru $path -ArgumentList "/config $global:SharePoint2013Path\FarmSilentConfig.xml"
        switch($sharePointInstallProcess.ExitCode)
        {
            0 {
                Write-Log -Verbose  "SharePoint successfully installed"
                Write-Log -Verbose  "SharePoint Installed"
                if ($global:DoAllTasks) {
                    Set-Restart-AndResume $global:script "8"
                    }
            }
            default{
                Write-Log -Verbose  "An error has occured in installing SharePoint. Code: " $sharePointInstallProcess.ExitCode
            }
        }
    }
    else {
        if($process.ExitCode -eq 3010) {
            Write-Log -Verbose  "SharePoint prereqs install requires a reboot"
        }
        else {
            Write-Log -Verbose  "SharePoint prereqs not succesfully installed, please investigate.  Code: " $process.ExitCode
        }
    }

 

Step D: Cleaning up

This step simply unmounts the SharePoint installation media.

Dismount-DiskImage -ImagePath $global:pathToSharePointISO
