AutoSPInstaller and AutoSPSourceBuilder now work with SharePoint Server 2019

Standard

Just in time for the release of the SharePoint Server 2019 Public Preview, I’ve made probably the most significant updates to two of my open-source offerings in a while… AutoSPInstaller will now install and create a SharePoint 2019 farm (using the Public Preview bits), and AutoSPSourceBuilder will download and integrate the SharePoint 2019 prerequisites – so you can install SharePoint 2019 while offline, without an Internet connection on the target server(s).

Also, I’ve finally converted the AutoSPInstaller functions file to a PowerShell module (!) This should improve the ability to run individual functions, as I plan to make some or all of the functions more easily executable on their own, without depending on or referencing an XML input file.

Check them out, and let me know what you think!

Cheers

PFE Ramblings: SharePoint 2019, SharePointDSC and AutoSPInstaller

Standard

With the recent announcement and release of the Public Preview of SharePoint Server 2019, my fellow PFE Nik Charlebois and I thought we’d record a quick chat of our thoughts on the state of things around SharePoint and two of the most popular automated installation approaches, SharePointDSC and AutoSPInstaller.

Head on over to Nik’s blog for the full run-down, and a recording of our chat as well.

Cheers
