Easy SharePoint 2010 warmup Script using PowerShell

| Posted in Programming, SharePoint

This idea comes from Kirk Hofer’s blog, but modfied to use the SharePoint 2010 powershell commandlets and not care about specifying credentials in the script. I figured most people would just keep using the credentials specified in their scheduled task.

The script loads the SharePoint plugin, enumerates the zones, and sends a request to each one.

[powershell]Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell;

function Get-WebPage([string]$url) { $wc = new-object net.webclient; $wc.credentials = [System.Net.CredentialCache]::DefaultCredentials; $pageContents = $wc.DownloadString($url); $wc.Dispose(); return $pageContents; }

Get-SPAlternateUrl -Zone Default | foreach-object { write-host $.IncomingUrl; $html = Get-WebPage -url $.IncomingUrl; }[/powershell]
