Now we’ll load the Content Pack for People.
Execution of PowerShell script failed: Unable to connect to SharePoint. Please verify that the site ‘http://mysite.contoso.com/’ is hosted on the local machine.
After seeing the above error, I decided to open MySite with IE to warm up the IIS memory cache. Also, I added the SharePoint cmdlets to the default PowerShell “$profile” which helps with general admin work too.
This time instead of clicking the “Install” button I opened PowerShell and manually navigated to the “C:\Content Packs\Packs\PeoplePack – UserProfile Provisioning Demo 15.2.5\” folder to run “Install.ps1” manually which seemed to work much better. Maybe having that working directory context allowed it to find other resource files. I don’t know which of the 3 changes (HTTP cache, $profile cmdlets, or manually running “Install.ps1”) was the fix but I’m glad to see it populating now.
