1963391 - BI4 IOMS install fails to work on complex Sharepoint farm environments


  • BI4.x Sharepoint Integration solution IOMS [Integration option for Microsoft Sharepoint] fails to install or configure correctly on complex Sharepoint [SP] farm environments
  • IOMS installs correctly on simple and standalone sharepoint deployments
  • IOMS installer fails to succeed on compex sharepoint 2010 farm environments such as involving multiple servers EG: 8 servers with 4 wfes, 2 app servers, 2 db servers etc.
  • Some of the Issues observed are :
    • IOMS installer does not detect and present ALL available Sharepoint sites (GetSharepointSites.exe). The script only seems to present local sites and no other sites on the same Sharepoint farm. Due to this issue, users will not be able to pick their preferred web site for deploying the solution.
    • When customers do pick the available default site presented (80) to deploy solution, even if overall install ends successfully - creating a site collection with BO templates still fails on this site with errors such as below:
    • "A list, survey, discussion board, or Document library with the specified title already exists in this Web site. Please choose another title".
  • Based on install logs  -
    • The IOMS installer appears to deploy the solution without errors as seen in log below (refer to kbase 1737742 - 4.1 SP02 addresses the Host Header related issues ADAPT01706993) -
