Farm environment installation

Mar 22, 2008 at 11:03 AM
In a server farm environment, has the *.msi to be installed on ALL web front end servers or is the solution and the required files (assemblies, templates etc.) automatically deployed to all front end servers?

I didn't test the feature in Farm environment but I think you have to install the .msi on all the server of the farm.

Hi ,
I have the same problem .I could install the feature single server.But when I try to install the feature to a farm enviroment.Display Setting Feature deployed but could not work.When I installed the feature to a web front end.Other front end server get the changes.DefaultTemplate.ascx file changes only first front end server where I installed the feature.Then I manually changed all DefaultTemplates.ascx file with the updated DefaultTemplates.ascx file on other front end server.But It could  not work.Is there any solution for installing farm enviroment.

    I have installed the solution on one front end in the farm. And I had lot of problems mentioned in other posts and this post too. I deactivated the feature and removed the solution from my farm manuall using stsadm. And using the C:\Program Files\Bewise\SPListDisplaySetting\Bewise.SharePoint.SPListDisplaySetting.wsp solution files I installed the solution on to the farm using stsadm manually. It installed the feature on both the servers and the feature is working fine.

I have the same type of problem in a Farm installation.<o:p></o:p>

<o:p> </o:p>

I have installed the .msi on both of my front-end webservers.<o:p></o:p>

And the feature seems to be installed correctly on bothservers (I can see the feature listed).<o:p></o:p>

However, the list I created on “server A” does not work on “serverB”<o:p></o:p>

On “server B” all I get is a blank page…<o:p></o:p>

<o:p> </o:p>

Any Idea why it would work correctly on the first server andnot the second? <o:p></o:p>

<o:p>Also, I get an error message on “Server B”</o:p>


<o:p>Load control template file/_controltemplates/DefaultTemplates.ascx failed: Could not load file orassembly 'Bewise.SharePoint.SPListDisplaySetting, Version=,Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=ff7b91f6a8ac16d4' or one of its dependencies.The system cannot find the file specified.</o:p>

Thanks... <o:p></o:p>

HI all,

HI, I'm very interested in this feature, is a fantastic idea and very usefull but I can find if this sollution works fine in 64 bits enviroment

I could install this feature with the wsp file. .msi doesn´t work to me.

The problem is that  feature doesn's works correctly, I can configurate the fields, but that fields was shown every time, ...

 Are there Anyone with a farm installation in 64b enviroment and this feature works correctly??


Thank you
