This section describes the procedures required to install and configure the RecordPoint software using Windows PowerShell.
In this section the following topics are covered:

  • Installing Software – Explains how to run the msi
  • Solution Installation – Explains how to run the PowerShell script which installs and deploys the solutions to Central Administration
  • Deployment and Configuration – Explains each of the 5 stages of the deployment process. The first four must be completed for a full deployment and final stage (configuration) is optional.

The following stages are:

  • Create Site – This process creates a site collection for the RecordPoint Web Application.
  • Solution Deployment – This process deploys the solutions to both the RecordPoint and Active Sites
  • Local Deployment – This process deploys RecordPoint logging and diagnostic infrastructure components. By default, this process gets installed to the server when running the msi and will only need to be run on additional servers in the farm.
  • Content Deployment – This process will update the content for both the RecordPoint and Active Sites.
  • Configuration – This process will enable and disable RecordPoint components for both the RecordPoint and Active Sites.

Install RecordPoint Software

This process installs the RecordPoint software to the server.

  1. Run the RecordPoint Setup msi
  2. Follow the installation wizard which will load and guide you through the steps

Solution Installation

After installing the RecordPoint software, the RecordPoint solutions must be installed and deployed to Central Administration.

  1. Open Windows PowerShell
  2. Run the InstallRecordPoint.bat script
    By default, this is located under C:\Program Files\RecordPoint\Scripts.
    This script installs the RecordPoint.wsp and RecordPoint.Active.wsp solutions into the SharePoint Farm
  3. Perform an iisreset and timer job service restart on all WFE in the farm

RecordPoint Deployment and Configuration

The RecordPoint Deployment and Configuration is made up of five (5) processes. The first four (4) are mandatory to do a full installation of RecordPoint.

Create Site using Windows PowerShell

This process is used to create a site collection for all the dedicated RecordPoint Web Application(s) using Windows PowerShell. The RecordPoint site collection must be created through this process as RecordPoint requires a blank site template which cannot be created through the SharePoint user interface.
For more information on how to create a site collection using Windows PowerShell refer to Microsoft TechNet article.

This example retrieves a list of all available site templates and then creates a site collection by using the Blank Site template. Ensure you set name to equal RecordPoint otherwise it will not be available for solution deployment via the UI.
Note: Add the RecordPoint Site Collection Administrator account to the Primary Site Collection Administrator

Example
.Get-SPWebTemplate
$template = Get-SPWebTemplate "STS#1"
New-SPSite -Url "<URL for the new site collection>" -OwnerAlias "<domain\user>" -Template $template –Name "RecordPoint"

For more information on how to create a site collection using Windows PowerShell refer to Microsoft TechNet article.

Solution Deployment using Windows PowerShell

This process is used to deploy and retract the RecordPoint solution to both the RecordPoint and Active Sites using Windows PowerShell.
Multiple web applications that are available can be specified to deploy or retract solutions to.

This example deploys the installed RecordPoint solution recordpoint.deployment.wsp to the RecordPoint Web Application and specifies that GAC can be deployed for the new SharePoint solution.
The installed solution recordpoint.deployment.active.wsp will need to be deployed to every Active Site Web Application

Example
Install-SPSolution -Identity recordpoint.deployment.wsp –WebApplication "Name or GUID of the RecordPoint Web Application" –GACDeployment –Force

For more information on how to complete a solution deployment using Windows PowerShell refer to Microsoft TechNet article.

License RecordPoint using Windows PowerShell

In order to proceed with the installation, you need to license RecordPoint.
