Using DSC to Setup the New SCSM Portal Server


Hooray the new portal is out – you can get it from https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=49556 

The portal server requires some configuration of roles before the setup can be run. Below is a DSC configuration block which you can run to configure the web server pre-requisites.

Configuration PortalWebServer
    {

    Node localhost
        {

        WindowsFeature WebServer
            {
            Ensure="Present"
            Name="Web-Server"
            }

        WindowsFeature NETASP
            {
            Ensure="Present"
            Name="NET-Framework-45-ASPNET"
            DependsOn = "[WindowsFeature]WebServer"
            }

        WindowsFeature WebAuth
            {
            Ensure="Present"
            Name="Web-Windows-Auth"
            DependsOn = "[WindowsFeature]WebServer"
            }
        WindowsFeature BasicAuth
            {
            Ensure="Present"
            Name="Web-Basic-Auth"
            DependsOn = "[WindowsFeature]WebServer"
            }
        WindowsFeature ASP
            {
            Ensure="Present"
            Name="Web-ASP"
            DependsOn = "[WindowsFeature]WebServer"
            }
        WindowsFeature ASPNET
            {
            Ensure="Present"
            Name="Web-ASP-Net"
            DependsOn = "[WindowsFeature]WebServer"
            }
        WindowsFeature ASPNET45
            {
            Ensure="Present"
            Name="Web-ASP-Net45"
            DependsOn = "[WindowsFeature]WebServer"
            }
        WindowsFeature HTTPAct
            {
            Ensure="Present"
            Name="AS-HTTP-Activation"
            DependsOn = "[WindowsFeature]WebServer"
            }
        }
      }

PortalWebServer
Start-DscConfiguration -Path .\PortalWebServer -Verbose -Wait
       

Now all you have to do is run the setup included in the patch.
