Introduction
Hi, and thank you for joining me for Installing SharePoint 2013 with PowerShell. My name is Jeff Adkin. Please feel free to check out my website, or follow me on Twitter @JAdkin. What we're going to do right now, is we're just going to spend a couple moments going over an introduction. We're going to talk about what were going to be actually doing, and a really important thing, what's in it for you? What can you get out of this actual entire course? And, what's entailed in each of these modules we're going to be doing? So, let's go spend a moment and talk about those, shall we?

Setup Accounts and LoopbackCheck
Hi, and thank you for joining me for the next module. In this module we're going to look over the SharePoint 2013 Accounts and Loopback. Now, just a quick note, going forward, in front of every single module we're going to have just a minute or so, you know a little intro thing, just to say what we're doing going forward. That being said, in this module, we're actually going to go over the following pieces: Active Directory Accounts. Now, this doesn't mean just, you know, what accounts do I need? We are going to talk about that, but we're actually going to go in and demo how to create these in PowerShell, and how to get them where they need to be. And, we're also talking across multiple servers, because, remember, we're going to go with something like a three-tier Farm. Well, we can't just turn around and, you know, log into this server, log into that server, and we'll talk about that as we get there. And then, of course, the infamous LoopBack Check. So, that one I'm going to hold onto until we actually get to it so we can talk more about it. Now, that being said, let's go start off with our Active Directory Accounts.

Installing Features and Prerequisites
Well, thank you for joining me again. In this module, what we're going to do, is we're going to go over SharePoint 2013 Installing Features and Prerequisites. So, what does that actually mean? Well, it means that in this module, we're going to go over the following pieces. We're going to go over the PowerShell Add-WindowsFeature, and we're going to talk about all the Windows features that need to be added and setup for SharePoint to actually have its prerequisites to run. Well, speaking of our wonderful little prerequisites, we need the SharePoint 2013 Products Preparation Tool, and we're going to talk about that, because that's the GUI portion of what we're going to be doing, but we're not going to actually utilize GUI; remember, we're going to stay right inside of PowerShell. So, that means we're going to have to find a way to use the PrerequisiteInstaller. exe inside of PowerShell itself, and not a GUI. And last but not least, we're also going to talk about the PrerequisiteInstaller. Arguments. TXT. What is that and how can we use that to make our life a lot easier? Alright, let's go jump forward and go check out that Add-WindowsFeature portion.

Configuration and Installation
Welcome back and congratulations. We're almost there. We've gone through all this stuff just to get to the installation, and right here we are going to go through the module configuration and installation. Now, of course, that leads us that configuration's probably coming before installation. Well, let's go look at what we're going to do in this module, and we'll talk about it there. So, in this module we're going to go over the following pieces: We're gonna go over the Setup Configuration, fairly straightforward. We're gonna go over the CONFIG. XML and all of the settings. Now, even though it's fairly straightforward, it is a little bit lengthy because of the amount of things. Now, the Configuration file, or the CONFIG. XML, is actually going to tell the SharePoint setup exactly what to do, and know exactly how it's gonna run. And that, then, leads us to, of course, the installation. Finally, we're almost there. And, when we get there, I'll probably be saying, "Finally, we made it. " But, all that to the side, the installation's gonna be pretty straightforward. We've gotten the pre-reqs and all of the features set. We'll get the Config done in this module, and the installation should be the very small portion of what we actually look at in this module. So, let's go forward, and let's go check out what that whole Setup Configuration's about, shall we? Let's go head over there.

SharePoint 2013 Service Applications
Hi, and thank you for joining me for this module. What we're looking at in this module is our SharePoint 2013 Service Applications. So, we're gonna go over the following pieces: The first piece being User Profile. As one of the bigger guys inside of our applications, like for our service applications, we're gonna have to go after this one right off the bat and get that out of the way. Then, we're gonna go after the biggest one, you got it, Search. Especially in 2013, with a new setup, it's our big boy. And after that, we're gonna after some Additional Services. We're gonna look at, you know, our state service, our secure store. All right, all that being said, we've got some hefty work in front of us. So, let's go quickly talk about User Profile and then get into these demos. See you there in a second.

SharePoint 2013 Apps
In this module, we're going to be going over SharePoint 2013 Apps, those wonderful new things that have come about in SharePoint 2013 to kind of replace our Solutions and we'll talk about that just shortly. Let's see what we're going to do in this module, shall we? So in this module, we're going to go over the following pieces. We're going to have to go over DNS because applications use specific DNS setup. Subscription settings, we're going to have to go over and make sure that all that is set up and running. We're also going to have to do our App Management. And then when all this is said and done, we're going to go back one more time to our loopback check and I know we talked about this a long time ago, but we're going to come into our loopback check and get it ready for the new DNS that we're using with our apps. Alright, before we go jump into any servers, we're going to spend a bit of time actually talking about apps and what they are, because they are a fairly new feature and I want to make sure you understand exactly what we're doing. So let's go jump over to those slides first, before we get into the server. I'll see you there in a second.
