I am just investigating the Offline Package Drop deployment target to see if it will work for us.
Within the process steps I have a couple of Powershell steps which require elevated privileges. One interacts with IIS and imports the WebAdminstration module within the script whilst the other starts the MSDTC service. However if I run the CMD as an Administrator PowerShell runs from the Windows32 directory and can’t reference the relative locations for the packages; variables etc.
I have worked around this by editing the PS1 file specifying absolute paths but this isn’t ideal as I want to generate the package set and offload it to a partner to execute.
Does anyone know of a more scalable solution for this, or is there a change planned to support this scenario?
