1. Prepare the Microsoft SharePoint Installation Module

Scenario/Problem: You need to have access to extended SharePoint installation commands within PowerShell.

Solution: Download and install the SPModule from Microsoft.

Before you can install SharePoint from within PowerShell, you need to download and install the SPModule code from Microsoft. The downloadable file is located at (or search for “SPModule PowerShell”).

Unzip the file and place it into a local folder. Add this folder to the PSModulePath environment variable. The code is unsigned, so you must allow unsigned scripts to run.

Launch Windows PowerShell by right-clicking the icon and selecting Run As Administrator. Import the modules extracted from the zipped SPModule by using the commands in Listing 1.

Listing 1. Importing the SPModule Components

Import-Module SPModule.misc
Import-Module SPModule.setup


You must set your execution policy to Unrestricted to successfully import the SPModule.misc and SPModule.setup files. You therefore are prompted upon import of some scripts. Entering an R for Run Once installs the scripts properly.

The cmdlets to install and configure SharePoint are now installed and ready for use.


Importing the SPModule.misc file performs a check for updates. If updates are available, you are notified. Perform any updates before proceeding.

2. Install SharePoint Unattended

Scenario/Problem: You need to install SharePoint from PowerShell.

Solution: Use the Install-SharePoint cmdlet from the SPModule.

The first step in unattended installation and configuration is to install SharePoint onto the server. The SPModule provides the Install-SharePoint cmdlet to perform the installation. This cmdlet is used in conjunction with a setup configuration file that contains the installation parameters.

The SharePoint installation disc includes sample setup configuration files, located in their own folder within Files, as shown in Figure 1. Listing 2 shows an example of the configuration file contents.


Figure 1. Sample configuration files are contained within the folders shown.

Listing 2. Sample Farm Setup Configuration File

    <Package Id="sts">
        <Setting Id="LAUNCHEDFROMSETUPSTS" Value="Yes"/>

    <Package Id="spswfe">
        <Setting Id="SETUPCALLED" Value="1"/>

    <Logging Type="verbose" Path="%temp%"
Template="SharePoint Server Setup(*).log"/>
    <!--<PIDKEY Value="Enter Product Key Here" />-->
    <Setting Id="SERVERROLE" Value="APPLICATION"/>
    <Setting Id="USINGUIINSTALLMODE" Value="1"/>
    <Setting Id="SETUPTYPE" Value="CLEAN_INSTALL"/>
    <Setting Id="SETUP_REBOOT" Value="Never"/>

Copy the config.xml file that matches your intended installation to a local drive location. Open the file in Notepad and uncomment the PIDKEY line by removing the <!-- from the front and the --> from the back. Enter your SharePoint product key in place of Enter Product Key Here. Save your changes.

You can now use this configuration file with the Import-SharePoint cmdlet, which has the following syntax:

Install-SharePoint -setupexepath <path to setup.exe on disc>
-configxmlpath <path to the setup config.xml>

Listing 3 shows a sample command-line entry.

Listing 3. Installing SharePoint from the Command Line

Install-SharePoint -setupexepath D:\setup.exe -configxmlpath

SharePoint is installed on the server accordingly.


Install SharePoint on all servers that will participate in the farm (except for the database server) before configuring a new farm or joining an existing farm.
