AutoSPInstaller – stuck at Provisioning User Profile Service
Today I am using AutoSPInstaller to install SharePoint 2013 on a Windows 2012 R2 server. Unfortunately, it appears to have hung at the Provisioning User Profile Service process.
After waiting for 2 hours and giving up, I have increased the timeout within the CreateUserProfileServiceApplication function (inside AutoSPInstallerFunctions.ps1) from 120 seconds to 300 seconds:
[int]$UPSWaitTime = 0
# Wait 5 minutes for either the UPS to be created, or the UAC prompt to time out
While (($UPSWaitTime -lt 300) -and ($profileServiceApp.Status -ne “Online”))
Now the User Profile Service has provisioned without incident. I suspect this was down to the virtual server hosting UPS running on a slower physical host.
