How to install SAF

A couple of you emailed and asked how to install SAF (version 2), so here are some instructions.

Installing…

If you have never installed SAF on your SharePoint Farm then you need to install. To do this, you need to use STSAdm commands which I have popped into a batch file. Hence follow the steps below :

  1. Logon to a SharePoint Server in your Farm as a Farm Administrator.
  2. Download “Install.bat” to that server in your SharePoint Farm (right click “Save Target as…”)
  3. Remove the ‘.txt’ extension.
  4. Download the latest version of SAF from “http://saf.codeplex.com/“.
  5. Extract “SAFv2.wsp” to the same folder as the batch file in step 2.
  6. Ensure the path in STSAdm in “install.bat” is correct.
  7. Run “install.bat”

Upgrading…

If you already have a version of SAF on your Farm and want to upgrade to a newer version, please complete the steps below :

  1. Logon to a SharePoint Server in your Farm as a Farm Administrator.
  2. Download “Upgrade.bat” to that server in your SharePoint Farm (right click “Save Target as…”).
  3. Remove the ‘.txt’ extension.
  4. Download the latest version of SAF from “http://saf.codeplex.com/“.
  5. Extract “SAFv2.wsp” to the same folder as the batch file in step 2.
  6. Ensure the path in STSAdm in “install.bat” is correct.
  7. Run “upgrade.bat”
