we can setup sps 2010 server farm using powershell now. but it will be more complex than regular way to do it, using sharepoint installation wizard.
my question is what is the benefit of using powershell to setup server farm instead?

Is there a solution to resolve the constant "Prompts" For user id's and passwords when a person tries to open/launch/edit office documents from sharepoint 2010.
My setup: sharepoint fqdn in the domain sp.domainname.local, The sharepoint server is a member of this internal domain. In dns I have local zone of sp.domainname.com with a cname that points to the internal sharepoint server. There is no issue
in users accessing the server both internal and external, The issue arises when Office documents are launched from SP2010.
In central admin I have configured the alternate access mappings to be
I have also tried putting the fqdn dns name of the sharepoint server in IE8 trusted zone but
no luck, I still get credential prompts.
I think the issue might be that Office does not see that the files are coming from the fqdn of sp.domainname.com so hence the prompts.
Trying to fix this as right now its a total pita. I found some previous posts on this issue with SP2007 but found nothing that really addresses this in SP2010.
Is that possible to setup a SFS2010 environment using PowerShell? Has anyone done it before?
I am thinking if it is possible, then we can use the same powershell script to create multiple SPS2010 environment with exact same configuration.
Thanks in advance,
Microsoft SharePoint server 2010 encountered an error during setup. One or more required office components failed to complete successfully.
Looking into the issue it appears that setup cannot install the embedded sql server, since the logs indicate a dbwrap error. There are no "pendingfilerename" operations which fixed this problem for some. I tried to install as a farm but it won't
allow me to use a local admin account. I also looked at the sql configurations and the windows internal database is running.
Any ideas how to I can remove the windows internal database and reinstall SF2010?
Windows 7 Pro trying to install 2010 in standalone. I started with an ISO image, burnt it to a cd and copied all of the files here c:\SharePointFiles . manually Installing the prerequisites.
When I run setup.exe I get the error: The Product ID spcified was not found on your machine
My config.xml file has this line added: <Setting Id="AllowWindowsClientInstall" Value="True"/>
I also put in the Product key in the config.xml. I cant seem to find much help online with this error. I tried to copy the config.xml to the same directory as the setup.exe and that did not help either.
Anyone have any ideas what direction I should take? I have pretty much read this thread to death:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee554869(office.14).aspx and that has not seemed to shed any light on the matter. Anyone? I'm several hours into Googling and still running
into the same issue no matter what I do.
Appreciate any help - Thanks!!

We have a requirement where there are 3 different properties
country - which has dropdown list with (US,Canada,UK) value
City - which has dropdown list with(detriot,Newyork,Toronto,London)
ZipCode - which has dropdown list with(12345,34fn8,23456)
Now we would like to setup a relationship such that when the user select country = US they should see only option of detroit and newyork as city and once the appropriate city is selected they should see the related zipcode
How can we achieve this?
I am attempting to do a silent farm installation of SharePoint 2010 via powershell using the SPModule commandlets and am running into the following error when attempting to run the Install-SharePoint command (passing the path to .exe and path to config.xml):
PS C:\Users\administrator.INETTEST2K3N> Install-SharePoint -SetupExePath "c:\install\setup.exe" -ConfigXml "c:\install\files\setupfarmsilent\config.xml"
The variable cannot be validated because the value C:\Users\ADMINI~1.INE\AppData\Local\Temp\2\config_2010_Jul_09_16_41_
28.xml is not a valid value for the ConfigXmlPath variable.
At C:\SPModule\spmodule.setup\Install-SharePoint.ps1:412 char:19
+ $ConfigXmlPath <<<< = Join-Path $env:temp $ConfigXmlName
+ CategoryInfo : MetadataError: (:) , ParentContainsErrorRecordException
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : ValidateSetFailure
I have tried this on both 2008 and 2008 R2 (x64) and keep getting this same error.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated!
Question: What is the best practice configuration for StandAlone install? Here is my scenario: client does not own SQL Server therefore they want to use the OOB version in StandAlone mode. Most likely this will be fine for their goals for a couple years.
Anyhow, so I install in as Server Farm - first option, then StandAlone - second option, and select the location to store the data files. It installs great. Now reading the best practices for a typical farm (non-standalone) install, a domain account should
be used for the services. During the install of standalone it assignes the NETWORK SERVICE account to all of the services.
Can I create the SP_Farm account - per best practices - and get this account to work for the Farm service in standalone setup? Do I have to add this account to SQL Server Express first, add it as a managed account in SharePoint, then assign it to the Farm
Curious if anyone has done this. Or is the best practice when using SharePoint Foundation 2010 standalone configuration, to use the default accounts and settings as it was setup?
Thank you any responses.
