I need the url of the mysite in SharePoint 2010 server. In my farm i only have one MySite host (and one corresponding user profile service) configured.

I need the information on one of the farm servers and i'm using powershell for my script.


Using the sharepoint Management Shell you can execute the following script. Replace the url with one of the application url's your are running on:

$mySiteUrl = "http://portal.contoso.com"
$sc = Get-SPServiceContext($mySiteUrl)
$upm = new-object Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.UserProfileManager($sc)

If no url is available take one from Get-SPWebApplication if all web apps are using the same UPS.


For simple farms you can use the following

$upm =  New-Object Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.UserProfileManager([Microsoft.Office.Server.ServerContext]::Default)

If you are looking for the Personal site for a user profile you can get that from the UserProfileManager.UserProfile.PublicUrl.



If you only have one Web Application in your Server Farm you can also get it this way:

# Get the info from the Content Database
$myContentDb = Get-SPContentDatabase
# Get the Web Application
$myWebApp = Get-SPWebApplication

With these objects you can get the URL and more information on the Web Application. I use this as a precursor to get the information from the Server Farm so I can dismount the content database in preparation for restores in our test environment.
