Access 2010 FAQ
Can you instantiate the five web templates using a PowerShell command?
Yes, this is certainly possible.
You'll first need appropriate permissions on your SharePoint server to create new sites. Talk to your SharePoint server administrator if you do not currently have sufficient rights to create new sites.
Open your SharePoint PowerShell command window by clicking:
Start -> Program Files -> Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Products -> Sharepoint 2010 Management Shell
After the command window opens, enter the following command and then press enter
New-SPWeb -Template ACCSRV#1 -URL http://<your server>/<site name>
In the above example, ACCSRV#1 instantiates the Assets web template. Here are the template numbers:
ACCSRV#1 - Assets
ACCSRV#3 - Charitable Contributions
ACCSRV#4 - Contacts
ACCSRV#5 - Projects
ACCSRV#6 - Issues
Substitute your server name and site name in the appropriate places in the command.
After your site is ready, PowerShell returns control back to you in the command window. Your Access Services application is now ready for use.
