When installing the Sitecore Experience Platform or Sitecore Experience Commerce through Sitecore Installation Framework (SIF), often times you may run into errors mid way through the installation. When re-running the installation, there is a handy feature that allows you to skip certain installation tasks using the ‘Skip’ flag.
Install-SitecoreConfiguration @params -Skip CreateBinding
The name of task you want to skip is in the corresponding JSON configuration file that you are installing. E.g. the task above (CreateBinding) is in Master_SingleServer.json:
To skip multiple steps, just supply a comma separated list of tasks, e.g.:
Install-SitecoreConfiguration @params -Skip CreateBinding, InstallSolrCores
When you run the deploy script, you will see the skipped steps:
That's not all- in order to the reverse, i.e. to run specific tasks only use the 'Tasks' paramter:
Install-SitecoreConfiguration @params -Tasks CreateBinding, InstallSolrCores
