  1. Good day I took the “SharePoint 2013 Business Intelligence class” class on SP Videos .com.
    I know you are busy, if you can find time to reply it would really help me in my current job.

    I did attempt to use your “new-SSRS.ps1” supplied to the class.
    I did finally just create my SSRS Serv App “Manually” in CA
    No matter how many times I ran “new-SSRS.ps1” the Serv App and Proxy would not be created.
    It seemed that the variables were not getting set. I was entering all those values at the prompt.
    Related information:
    I ran the script via the PS SP Snappin “.\new-SSRS.ps1”
    Each and every time I get errors from LN 28
    New-SPRSServiceApplication -Name $SSRS -databaseserver $SQL -databasename $SQLdB -applicationpool $sapn

    and LN 42 New-SPRSServiceApplicationProxy -name $SSRSp -ServiceApplication $serviceapp.id
    saying that the values are NULL

    When I attempted to run the “new-SSRS.ps1” directly from the PS ISE, as you did during the class the SP Specific commands were not found…
    Get-SPServiceInstance : The term ‘Get-SPServiceInstance’ is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet,

    I realize I am missing something simple…
    I have watched the recorded video over and over again and I am not finding what I am doing wrong or not doing correctly.

    Thanks and Cheers

  2. Hi Jason,

    I attended the your sharepoint workshop at Dev Intersection conference in LV 2014. Can I get the sample scripts you and Seb demo’d for the workshop? They would be a great primer in getting started with PoSH and sharepoint.


  3. Thanks again for your session at Ignite on User Groups. Have you ever thought of a Remote User Group for User Group Leaders?

    Just a thought
