First of all, I would like to start by thanking Brian Lalancette and many others for their great work on the AutoSPInstaller Project.
AutoSPInstaller is a PowerShell based tool which automates the deployment of SharePoint 2010 and 2013. It has the ability to granularly configure most aspects of the farm and includes some interesting features such as: centralized farm deployment, granular database naming, XML configuration and more.
AutoSPInstallerGUI is a .NET Application which we built that assists in configuring the AutoSPInstallerInput.xml. If you haven’t seen the insides of it, it is a very lengthy XML file with tones of configuration. It takes a significant amount of time and knowledge of the script in order to configure successfully. Furthermore, if you are as clumsy with typing as I am, you will make a few mistakes. Something as simple as forgetting a quote or adding an extra space could cause issues, without a strong understanding of PowerShell and XML you may spend hours trying to fix it.
The goal of AutoSPInstallerGUI is to simplify this process. It will assist you with all of the configuration including some of the more complicated configurations such as adding additional Web Applications or Site Collections. Furthermore, there is a large amount of code just to make sure that all of the data is valid.
If you have any questions please leave a comment.
