Deployment–PDT Workflow.xml 1004 now available

Release 1004 of the Workflow.xml file for the PowerShell Deployment Toolkit is now available on the TechNet Gallery here.

Release 1004 addresses the following issues:

  • SharePoint Foundation 2010 fails to install when PowerShell execution policy is set to restricted – PowerShell execution policy is now set to RemoteSigned as necessary for installation of SharePoint 2010 Foundation to complete for the Service Manager SharePoint Web Parts Server role.
  • SQL Server 2012 cluster completion fails when a product key is provided – the PID switch is now only provided for cluster preparation, not cluster completion.
  • SQL Server 2012 firewall rules are set with incorrect path – the path to the SQL executable is corrected.
  • Media validation fails on the System Center 2012 SP1 Management Packs – updated the size validation for the new version of the Windows Server MP.
  • Added integration to install Virtual Machine Manager console on Data Protection Manager server when both components are included in a deployment – to allow VM mobility uninterrupted data protection to be enabled.
  • Some PowerShell debug entries were incomplete.
  • Windows Server 2012 evaluation ISO download fails – the download has been removed from Workflow.xml, this now needs to be manually downloaded.

No other changes were made to PDT – existing *.ps1 and Variable.xml files can be used with the updated Workflow.xml.
