VSeWSS – Depolyment Gotcha!

So I’m using VSeWSS on a project at the moment and have just discovered something that I should share.

The setup.bat file that is generated to deploy the solution (.wsp) file to your development box is not perfect for use when you’re going to PROD. I’ve just found the first of the short commings.

It’s this line:

echo Deploying solution %PackageName% ...
"%SPAdminTool%" -o deploysolution -name "%PackageName%" -local -allowGacDeployment -url %TargetWebUrl%

The use of the -local argument prevents this solution from propagating out to the other servers in the farm. So no biggie if you’re only running a single front end node, but a headache if you have a multi server environment….
