Some Issues I discovered that might save you hours of exacerbation. SetParameter and DNS/DMZ/ACL issues

I started a rant about lack of documentation, I thought I'd be better than that and just place this information here as a solution instead of just bitchin about the problem.

1) Multiple DNS entries for the same machine played hell, the assumed IP mapping did not occur and the correct ACL on our DMZ firewall was not opened. 

2) Powershell called after variables are set instead of calling script with Param model.  <SetParameter/> is misnamed and should be <SetVariable/>

TFS Deployer 1.5 (for TFS 2012) attempts to pass the ScriptParameter entries from DeploymentMappings,xml to the script as parameters if it finds parameters with matching names on the specified script.
