    Has anyone written deployment scripts in FAST SharePoint 2010 to deploy all the customizations from one FAST environment and deploy them on another FAST baseline environment?

    Please provide information or help materials on the same as soon as possible.

    Or were you looking for the settings in Central Administration?

  • Hi Thomas,

     

    Thanks for you reply!!

    I am looking for Powershell scripts that can be used to deploy the custom refiners, FAST Synonyms and FAST Keywords that we have created in one FAST environment to get deployed to another FAST baseline environment.

    Please provide if you have any deployment scripts on the same mentioned.

    Thanks,

    Ajay

  • Hi Ajay,

    The scripts referenced in my first reply will handle the FAST Synonyms and Keywords.

    For custom refiners, these two will be useful:

    http://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/scriptcenter/925c4fc5-9102-4600-8f28-fbcf9bbc556e
    Description: "The purpose of this script is to create/delete crawled properties, managed properties, crawled property catagories, and property mappings. " Thus, it will allow you to configure your managed properties to be used as a refiner.

    Next, to script configuration of your Search Center, you can use this one:

    http://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/scriptcenter/b41f8101-b8bb-40db-a756-16becc57881d
    Description: "This script reads property names and values from an XML deployment file and sets the appropriate web part properties. Useful for setting the UseDefaultConfiguration property in the refinement panel."

    Credits should go to my colleague, Brent Groom, for providing these scripts.

    Regards

    Thomas

  • Excellent scripts Thomas! Do you know what license they are published under and if it's possible to include them in a larger codeplex project (http://sppsck.codeplex.com/)? I'd rather have one good snapin lib, than many loose scripts.

  • Thomas,

     

    My understanding is that Ajay looks for something similar to ESPDeploy for FAST ESP, which would install FAST, apply patches, overlay etc.

    Is something like that available or in the works?

  • Hi Thomas,

    Is something available in FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint similar to ESPDepoy in FAST ESP that apply patches, overlays and copies custom refiners present in an xml file and deploys these files from one FAST environment to another FAST baseline environment. I am looking for few powershell scripts which does the same in FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint 2010 similar to ESPDeploy in FAST ESP.

    Please provide any powershell scripts if you currently have on the same.Thanks sadhak to make it more clearer on the same.

    Thanks,

    Ajay

  • Hi Mikael,

    All it says on the script repository page is:

    "Each contribution is licensed to you under a License Agreement by its owner, not Microsoft. Microsoft does not guarantee the contribution or purport to grant rights to it."

    So, license information ought to be included in each script, which it is not. I don't know what the "default" license for "text or code found on the Internet" is. But, I guess crediting the original author is sufficient.

    Regards
