Install Subscription Settings Service using Powershell – SharePoint 2013, 2016

If you ever find yourself needing to install the subscription settings service application in SharePoint, here’s some kickass powershell that will do it for you!


A couple things to keep in mind:

Make sure the value you provide for $saAppPoolName is the same name as the Application pool for the service application that you house your Shared Service Applications inside of in IIS.

Make user that the Database Server name variable uses the correct alias or the correct name, if God forbid, you’re not using an alias for SQL server


Happy SharePointing
