Yesterday, I wrote about how I setup SQL Servers Virtual Machines using PowerShell and PowerCLI. Now that I’ve got the SQL Server imaged, it’s time to format the disks and prep the Page File. Let’s dig in.
I’m trying to automate as much as possible in my lab and part of that is building SQL Servers. I’ve taken to trying to scripting this out. For me, that involves using PowerShell to build out this machine.
This is part 1 of a multi-part post on updates that I’ve made to How I Build an Orion Server. Primarily, it will be three parts. If you need this for a Hyper-V environment, I’ve got that script as well.
- Building my Orion Servers in VMware
- Configuring the disks on the VM after OS install
- Configuring the VM with the new disks
