    SLG2 Web Tier (re)Install - Required URLs

    I've been having some problems with SLG2, where some web parts would not work as expected. I noticed that the SLG web solution had failed to deploy, presumably at the September upgrade. I tried redeploying it and came back later to find sharepoint sites not rendering at all. I tried removing the solution completely to rule it out as the cause. That didn't fix it, but I was able to workaround by removing these lines from the web.config:
    Code:
          <add verb="*" path="*.vmg" type="SLG.Web.ImageHandling.GenericImageHandler, SLGWeb" />
          <add verb="*" path="*.pct" type="SLG.Web.ImageHandling.ChartHandler, SLGWeb" />
          <add verb="*" path="*.vtxt" type="SLG.Web.ImageHandling.VerticalTextHandler, SLGWeb" />
    .
    I think I just need to get SLG back online, then can add the above back in.

    Sharepoint is now loading, but understandably SLG is not. I believe the wsp solution for slg is stored in the web tier package. I've had a look on the server and in the MSI, and it seems the wsp is hidden away within the MSI somewhere. (not sure if it's in the binary table somewhere, as it doesn't seem to be in the cab).

    I tried uninstalling web tier, but it failed, I think because I'd already removed the solution.

    So, I used msizap (WICU) to remove the MSI details, then run the web tier to install over the top.

    Now I'm stuck, it's prompting for SLG App Tier URL and AD Services Website URL. I've had a look through the text files that the installer left, and the installation documentation from Capita, but can't find anything useful.

    The app and web tiers are installed on the sharepoint server and the ADP is installed on the SIMS server.

    On the app/web server I can see a SIMSWebServices IIS site. Is that the SLG App Tier Url, or is it just the sharepoint site URL? On the SIMS server there are 5 ADP sites, so am unsure which is the correct one.

    Thanks.

    SLG App Tier URL
    http://<name_of_MOSS_server>:90

    AD Services Website URL
    http://<name_of_SIMS_server>:1100/slgad.asmx

    Where <name_of_MOSS_server> is where you have installed the AppTier and <name_of_SIMS_server> is where you installed the AD Provisioning stuff.

    Any idea what you put in the box for 'Specify the sharepoint site url' on the next screen? I thought it would be just http://<name_of_MOSS_server> or http://<name_of_MOSS_server>/SLG but it spits those out saying its not a root sharepoint site url

    When i did a dummy install many moons ago, i scribbled some notes, they may be of use:

    After filling in the gateway app on port 90 and the AD on port 1100, the next step was to run stsadm.exe -o addsolution -filename c:\....\slgwebpackage.wsp

    also do to stsadm -o execadmsvcjobs

    after that in sharepoint central admin - operations - solution management click to deploy solution to top level site.

    then run stsadm -o activatefeature -name CCS_portalSchoolRegistration [which was in a ..12\template\features folder]

    -url http://dc1:8082

    rerun same command again with ccs_slgconfiguration_feature, ccs_slgcontenttypes, ccs_slgmasterpages.

    Now those steps are very old so probably changed by now, but maybe something rings a bell. Maybe the only relevant part is to add the port explicity on the url, especially if you've used something that isn't 80.
