      Is there a way to get powershell to wait for the solution to be deployed before returning from Install-SPSolution? currently I get an error when I try to activate my features since the solution has not been marked as deployed. the old stsadm deploysolution waited…

      Looks like I needed the -Local parameter. when I add that it seems to deploy right away. Seems a bit odd to me…

      I don’t know of any way to do this. -Local won’t work very well if you have multiple servers in your farm. You might have to write some PowerShell that does the install-spsolution, then loop through get-spsolution until your solution shows up.

      #Wait for solution to be deployed
      do {Start-Sleep -s 10} while ($solution.Deployed -eq $false)

      Thanks all, Colin, I see you are sleeping for 10 seconds in between waits, I had coding something up to sleep 1 second at a time, but it did seem to take about 10 seconds to deploy/undeploy on my local machine. Is that about normal? I also had it timeout after 40 seconds. I guess I should bump these numbers up a bit. any thoughts?

      am just trying to fix something to get my BCS external list created. All indications are that the server has too many rows for BCS so here is what I put into the Powershell IDE running as administrator:

      $bdc = Get-SPServiceApplicationProxy
      | Where {$_ -match "Business Data Connectivity"}
      $throttle = Get-SPBusinessDataCatalogThrottleConfig -ThrottleType Connections
      -Scope Global
      -ServiceApplicationProxy $bdc
      Set-SPBusinessDataCatalogThrottleConfig -Enforced $false -Identity $throttle

      Here is the error I got:

      An empty pipe element is not allowed.
      At D:\Troubleshooting\Powershell\DisableThrottleForBCS\FixToGetWalkthroughForBCSExternalListWorking.ps1:2 char:9
      + | <<<< Where {$_ -match "Business Data Connectivity"}
      + CategoryInfo : ParserError: (:) [], ParentContainsErrorRecordException
      + FullyQualifiedErrorId : EmptyPipeElement

      Please help if you can see the error.

      when you get a "An empty pipe element is not allowed" error that something on the left of the pipe "|" returns nothing and passes nothing on to the thing on the right side of the pipe. To troubleshoot remove the variable and start piecing the statement together one step at a time until you get to the part that spits out nothing. In this case that means start with this:

      Make sure this gives you some output. Then add the next step:

      $bdc = Get-SPServiceApplicationProxy | Where {$_ -match &quot;Business Data Connectivity&quot;}
      And make sure that returns something, and so on.
