I spotted this script on the web (http://autospinstaller.com) and wanted to share it with you all.
This script will download all files required by Prerequisiteinstaller.exe in advance, in order to support an ‘offline’ installation of SharePoint 2010 (that is, on a server without Internet connectivity, as is often the case). Normally it will attempt to download any missing files, which of course doesn’t help you if your server can’t browse the Internet. Thankfully, PrerequisiteInstaller.exe also accepts command-line switches to allow installation from a locally-accessible file for each respective hotfix/prerequisite.
The script contains a list (current as of this writing) of the URLs for each prerequisite, and attempts to download them all in sequence. It uses the BitsTransfer module included with Windows 7 and Win2008 (R2, at least), but hasn’t yet been tested on other OSes yet.
Download the powershell script and the AutoSPInstaller.
Just to make it clear I didn’t write these scripts but i found it on te web. Here’s a link to the creators website.
For more information about how to use the script and installer. Check this page.
That’s it for now and until next time.

This post will take you down the process of configuring your SharePoint farm while introducing the new administrative functionality shipping in the PowerShell provider.
During the SharePoint Installation, make sure you choose “Server Farm” and then “Complete” install. This will allow you to create a SharePoint farm rather than a standalone server.
After the install completes, the setup program will ask you if you want to run the SharePoint Technologies Configuration Wizard (default is checked). Uncheck the box to NOT run the wizard. Continue reading “Provisioning a new SharePoint 2010 farm using powershell”

This topology is typically used for medium farms with the ability to expand to a large farm. In terms of performance, capacity, and scalability, a three-tier topology is recommended over a two-tier topology. A three-tier topology provides the most efficient physical and logical layout to support scaling out or scaling up, and provides better distribution of services across the member servers of the farm. The Web Front-End servers should be Load Balanced, and the Database servers should be in an Active/Passive cluster.
