Ok, so we have Sitecore 10 ready to play now which means long list of blog posts on how to install 10 and etc.. I know the hard work is already been done nicely and I don’t want to repeat that all again.
The idea for this post is to share the issue(s) which I encountered while installing Sitecore 10 via SIA.
Issue while creating shard databases-
I got an issue on step #52 where it tries to create shard databases and it breaks.. booooom.. so what’s next?- yes- you are right, I first checked if I am aligned with Sitecore with respect to the installation guide and you know what, I was pretty much aligned, so what’s the issue then?
The issue was related to ScriptDOM dll and I fixed it by removing the reference of ScriptDOM from GAC using gacutil tool, for more details check this- https://ankitjoshi2409.wordpress.com/2020/11/04/fixed-installation-error-with-sitecore-xdb-collection-database-sqlshardingdeploymenttool-exe-returned-a-non-zero-exit-code/
In addition to this If you are installing Sitecore along with SXA in a different root location instead of default C:\inetpub\wwwroot – please make sure you have all the parameter values updated to reflect the new path, this is what i got while it was installing SXA:
Apart from this it’s pretty smooth and same as what we did on 9.3.
Hope this helps.
Happy learning 🙂
