Detailed Description

Run New-SBFarm to create a new Service Bus for Windows Server farm. This is the first step required for getting started with Service Bus for Windows Server. A Farm is a Service Bus for Windows Server configuration stored in a farm management database. It includes the settings required by Service Bus for Windows Server such as databases to use to store settings as well as messages, ports to use either externally with clients or internally between the hosts of the farm.

For the FarmCertificateThumbprint and EncryptionCertificateThumbprint (for SSL) parameters, the New-SBFarm cmdlet expects a string to be passed in which is the thumbprint of the certificate you wish to use. These parameters are needed if you plan to use your own certificates – the certificates must be present in the LocalMachine Cert Store before you call New-SBFarm.

If an error occurs or you are forced to reboot during farm creation, the databases that are created may be left in a corrupt state. In that case, when you try to join a farm, the process may display an error that says that the machine you are trying to add to the farm is not a part of any farm. When you encounter such an error, you must drop the databases and recreate them before you can join any new nodes to the farm.

You can create a Service Bus farm that is managed with the Windows Azure Pack management portal. To enable this configuration, you must specify the basic authentication settings between the Service Bus resource provider and the Windows Azure Pack portal. Those include settings for the admin API as well as the tenant API.

Parameters

-AdminApiCredentials<PSCredential>

Sets the resource provider credentials. The resource provider is a component that exposes the management API to the portal. There are two Service Bus management portals; the Admin portal (which provides a set of resource provider APIs for farm administration), and the Tenant portal (which is the Windows Azure Management Portal). Use these credentials when you manually install the server farm and connect to the Admin portal.

Examples

Example 1

Create a new Service Bus for Windows Server farm with default settings. The farm will use the local host SQLExpress database and will create 3 databases (ManagementDB, GatewayDB and MessageContainer1).


PS C:\> $mycert=ConvertTo-SecureString -string myPassword1 -force –AsPlainText; New-SBFarm  -SBFarmDBConnectionString 'Data Source=localhost\sqlexpress;Integrated Security=True' -CertificateAutoGenerationKey $mycert

Example 2

Create a new Service Bus for Windows Server farm where management and gateway databases are placed on MySQLServer server and the initial message container database is placed on myDedicatedMessagingSQLServer server. The Service Bus for Windows Server services will run under the myServiceAccount domain account and admin permissions are given to the myAdminsGroup Active directory users group.


PS C:\> $mycert=ConvertTo-SecureString -string myPassword1 -force –AsPlainText; New-SBFarm -SBFarmDBConnectionString 'Data Source=mySQLServer;Integrated Security=True' –RunAsAccount myServiceAccount –AdminGroup myAdminsGroup –MessageContainerDBConnectionString 'Data Source=myDedicatedMessagingSQLServer;Integrated Security=True' –CertificateAutoGenerationKey $mycert
