  1. Purpose: This post describes the steps needed to perform an unattended install of Passwordstate. This procedure is automated via Powershell and requires no GUI interaction to complete. Prerequisites: Windows 8.1 + or Windows Server 2012 + Powershell 4.0 + Preferably Dual-Core 1.6Ghz or higher 2 GB RAM (the more RAM better with higher concurrent user access) 200 MB of disk space for web install Passwordstate Source Files SQL Express source files with SQL Management Studio Tools source files (Optional) Installation steps performed via this automated process: Installation of IIS Manager role with required settings if not already installed Installation of source files in c:\inetpub\Passwordstate Creation of Passwordstate Web Site Creation of Application Pools Creation of Certificate Creation of API, Self Destruct and Mobile applications within IIS Creation of Firewall rules Installation of Passwordstate service Installation of SQL Express software (optional) Post Script tasks: Once this script has installed Passwordstate, you will need to browse to your new Passwordstate URL and configure the settings for the first time use. These steps can be found in Section 8 of the Installation Guide. Steps Required to Perform Unattended Install: 1. Download the https://www.clickstudios.com.au/downloads/passwordstate_unattended_files.zip and place it in a folder of your choice on the machine you intend to install Passwordstate on 2. Download the https://www.clickstudios.com.au/downloads/passwordstate_unattended_script.zip and extract the contents into the same folder as you downloaded the source files to in Step 1 3. If you would like to automatically install SQL Express 2016 as part of this unattended process, you will need to supply the SQL Source installation files. You will need to download these files as a once off process, and transfer them to the machine you are installing Passwordstate on in the same folder as Step 1. Below are the instructions on how to obtain the source files in the correct format: a. Download SQL Express 2016 SP1 from https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=799012 (Or what ever the latest version of SQL Express is on this page) b. Run the SQLServer2016-SSEL-Expr.exe c. Click ‘Download Media’ d. Select the Express Core option, and a Folder to download the source files to, and click Download e. Browse to the download folder and run SQLEXPR_x64_ENU.exe - Choose a place to extract all the files to. Copy this entire folder into the same folder that you created in Step 1 and close down the SQL Installer Window if it is still open. f. Download SQL Management Studio Tools (SMSS-Setup-ENU.exe) from https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/ssms/download-sql-server-management-studio-ssms. Place this executable into the same folder as Step 1 **NOTE** Take a copy of these SQL Express Source files, and the Passwordstate Source files, and they can be re-used if deploying Passwordstate to multiple systems - no need to download them multiple times unless you want to get the latest Passwordstate source files** 4. Edit lines 9, 10 and 11 in the Powershell script to modify the 3 variables appropriately. 5. Log into your server as an Administrator and run Powershell "As Administrator". Load the .\Unattended_install.ps1 script and execute Depending on whether or not you chose to install SQL Express, this unattended install may take a few minutes or up to 10 or so minutes to complete. Please feel free to modify the scripts to suit your needs, possibly with some proper logging and any other Powershell commands that you think will help automate this process for you.

  2. 3 Questions 1. Is it possible to setup PasswordState DB connection in Windows Authentication mode only? If not, why not? 2. Is it possible to script the first steps? (Welcome to Setup Complete) 3. Install on to a SQL Always On Group (SQL Express), is this supported? Edit: Added a question
  3. Hi, I have run through the install and I can't browse to the URL I've created. I uninstalled password state, disabled the IIS feature, and ran the install again, and still can't get to the default site. The password state service is in running state, IIS site is in running state. I am getting these errors in the event log but I assume at least one is due to not having been through the SQL setup yet. An Error has occurred executing the Call 'QueryPasswordResetPortalSystemSettings' - No error message available, result code: E_FAIL(0x80004005).&stacktrace= at System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnectionInternal..ctor(OleDbConnectionString constr, OleDbConnection connection) at System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnectionFactory.CreateConnection(DbConnectionOptions options, DbConnectionPoolKey poolKey, Object poolGroupProviderInfo, DbConnectionPool pool, DbConnection owningObject) at System.Data.ProviderBase.DbConnectionFactory.CreateNonPooledConnection(DbConnection owningConnection, DbConnectionPoolGroup poolGroup, DbConnectionOptions userOptions) at System.Data.ProviderBase.DbConnectionFactory.TryGetConnection(DbConnection owningConnection, TaskCompletionSource`1 retry, DbConnectionOptions userOptions, DbConnectionInternal oldConnection, DbConnectionInternal& connection) at System.Data.ProviderBase.DbConnectionInternal.TryOpenConnectionInternal(DbConnection outerConnection, DbConnectionFactory connectionFactory, TaskCompletionSource`1 retry, DbConnectionOptions userOptions) at System.Data.ProviderBase.DbConnectionInternal.OpenConnection(DbConnection outerConnection, DbConnectionFactory connectionFactory) at System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection.Open() Followed by: An error has occurred executing the call 'InitialiseService' - No error message available, result code: E_FAIL(0x80004005). Although in uninstalled IIS through the remove features, before trying another Password state install, I didn't get the prompts as defined in the youtube tutorial I was following. Any assistance much appreciated. Dan.
  4. Hello, I followed the instructions for installing on 2012 R2 , however it seems to be a bit outdated because in the SQL setup there was some pages with alot more options however I left these default and changed what was outlined in the guide. When I go to run the passwordstate.exe i get to the point where I click install and then it just sits at this window for hours. https://i.imgur.com/NUqsctP.png I've tried running it as admin, starting it over, but no matter what it just keeps doing this, I let it run for 3+ hours and it still was doing this. I'm not even sure where to start to debug this or if there is even install logs. Any advice is welcome.
  5. While installing the secondary node to complete the High Availability install and features, we are getting a frozen installation session. I have attached screenshots of the installation process ... Screenshot 1: test connection to database successful from server node 2. We selected the "connect to blank database" option Screenshot 2: after clicking NEXT, screen just stays frozen on "creating tables, please wait ..." Screenshot 3: database creation log Nothing occurs in the "creating tables, please wait" screen. I have confirmed that the database was created in mixed-mode. Also the database is accessible with no issues from server node #1.
