DESCRIPTION:

Following is a powershell script to automate the installation of AEM Author/Publish environments along with NAS storage and installation of necessary packages through a single script and deploy AEM as windows service with LogOn details.

The script is run locally on a VM where AEM environment is to be created. The script is broken into several sections, which are explained in detail.

SCRIPT:

Following are the parameters used

[code lang=powershell]

$ErrorActionPreference = “Stop”
$WarningPreference = “SilentlyContinue”

$SRCPATH = “C:\Users\SKYDEVOPS\AEM\zinstaller”
$BASEPATH = “C:\Users\SKYDEVOPS\AEM\instances\$AEMINST”
$SERVICEPATH = “$BASEPATH\crx-quickstart\opt\helpers”
$JARFILE = “$SRCPATH\aem-$AEMINST-p$AEMPORT.jar”
$LicensePath = “$SRCPATH\license.properties”
$AEMUNPACK = “java -jar $JARFILE -unpack”
$ServiceName = “AEMPRD”
$USERNAME = “\SKYDEVOPS”
$HOSTNAME = “192.168.2.8”
$CQ_PORT = “4503”
$CQ_USER = “admin”

Logic to check if AEM base directory exists, if not create it, then copy the necessary jar and license file and unpack AEM Author/Publish. If AEM Author/Publish directory exists then check for crx-quickstart folder and if its present then terminate the installation

[code lang=powershell]

Write-Output “Creating Folder at $BASEPATH”
New-Item -ItemType directory -Path $BASEPATH
Copy-Item -Path $LicensePath -Destination $BASEPATH
Set-Location -Path $BASEPATH
Write-Output “”
Write-Output “Unpacking $AEMINST”
Invoke-Expression -Command:”cmd.exe /c $AEMUNPACK”

if ($AEMINST -eq “Author”) {
Write-Output “Creating INSTALL Folder”
New-Item -ItemType directory -Path “$BASEPATH\crx-quickstart\install”
Write-Output “”

Copy-Item -Path “$SRCPATH\$FILEDSTORECFG” -Destination “$BASEPATH\crx-quickstart\install”
}
Set-Location -Path “C:\Users\SKYDEVOPS\Documents\scripts”
}else {

Write-Output “$BASEPATH Exists”
Write-Output “Checking crx-quickstart Directory”
if (!(Test-Path -Path $BASEPATH\crx-quickstart)) {
Write-Output “crx-quickstart Not Found, Unpacking $AEMINST”

Write-Output “Unpacking $AEMINST”

Invoke-Expression -Command:”cmd.exe /c $AEMUNPACK”

Creating AEM service, adding LogOn details and starting AEM service
