SharePoint Administration Tools

A list of tools that can be used by a SharePoint Administrator to help maintain, administer and configure their SharePoint Farm.



Automated SharePoint 2010/2013 PowerShell-based installation script. Introducing AutoSPInstaller v3 with numerous enhancements including: Granular SQL server assignment and aliasing for (almost) every service/web app (for control freaks) Centralized, remote installation to all farm servers Ability to specify any XML input file, by passing it as an argument to AutoSPInstallerLaunch.bat Several tweaks & fixes AutoSPInstaller now works reliably with SharePoint 2013, and of course SharePoint 2010 including Service Pack 1 for SP2010 (with or without the June 2011 CU)!

Documentation Toolkit for SharePoint - Document farm config

Documentation Toolkit for SharePoint allows SharePoint administators to easily create farm documentation, track and compare farm changes.


AutoSPSourceBuilder: a utility for building a SharePoint 2010 / 2013 install source including prerequisites, service packs, language packs & cumulative updates.

Utilizing PowerShell and BITS (Background Intelligent File Transfer), AutoSPSourceBuilder will download any missing files (wherever feasible) then assemble them to achieve an integrated, "slipstreamed" master source repository for your SP2010/2013 installation. You simply provide the original media (e.g. ISO file or extracted bits), and AutoSPSourceBuilder takes care of the rest!
