I have two web servers in my server farm. Do I need to install it on both. Or just install it on one and copy the web.config and GAC files to the second web server.

Please advise, as I want to move it to my production server now.

Thanks in advance

I've tried to do this today as part of a migration.

I tried running the current msi package on both web servers. The first one works the second one doesn't. It comes up with an error when I try to browse to the home page of the forum site. You can't even browse to the page in maintenance page mode.

This is a real serious problem for us as we had arranged for a big go live event for a couple of weeks time.

Anyone have any ideas?

I installed it on one web server, added the web part. But when i used to be connected to the second web server it used to give me error, that web part is not safe.

Than i ran the MSI on the second web server. Now it opens fine on both servers, but the sample data is not getting generated as earlier on single server installation, there are some discrepancies. And the totals are not getting calculated: No. of posts, topics, forums is all 0.

So make sure to run MSI on both servers only than add the webpart.

Dont know if any one has been successful with a Server farm installation.

Any ideas bill....
