This document provides instructions on how to install the People Pack Demo content pack will load a few 100 hundred users’ pictures that will be used for Social Media, People Search, My Sites, tagging and Blog Creation in later service packs. The primary reason we add this content pack first is that it also creates the service accounts used in most of the demo builds. Please note that this content pack takes about 15 minutes to install.
This installable package is built using the SharePoint Content Pack Installer with PowerShell on a virtual machine. This document assumes that you have already successfully created an environment with Windows Server 2012 Guest or using Hardware. The preferred Server Name for the Server is DEMO2013a. This document may refer to this machine as “the base VM, the Contoso server, or DEMO2013a.
As a best practice, we recommend installing each Content Pack on a “clean” base VM. The Active Directory Content Pack may also be utilized within other content packs. Therefore, in order to maintain the integrity of the Active Directory Content Pack, we advise reverting back to the base image prior to installing additional content packs.
