When trying to install Sitecore 9, I am getting the following error :

[UpdateSolrSchema]:[Authenticating] http://habitat9.sc/sitecore/admin/PopulateManagedSchema.aspx?indexes=all Install-SitecoreConfiguration : Error requesting http://habitat9.sc/sitecore/admin/PopulateManagedSchema.aspx?indexes=all: The operation has timed out. At C:\SW\OneDrive_2018-07-02\sitecore9\SIFLess\SIFless-EZ-1531118582.ps1:67 char:1 + Install-SitecoreConfiguration @sitecoreParams + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ + CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (:) [Write-Error], WriteErrorException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.WriteErrorException,Install-SitecoreConfiguration

We observed the siteore-XP0.json:

"UpdateSolrSchema": { // Update the solr schemas. "Type": "SitecoreUrl", "Params": { "SitecoreInstanceRoot": "[concat('http://', parameter('SiteName'))]", "SitecoreActionPath": "sitecore/admin/PopulateManagedSchema.aspx?indexes=all", "UserName": "admin", "Password": "[parameter('SitecoreAdminPassword')]" }

This script is executed but I don't know where we were missing some steps.
