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:
<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.
