deployment question

Feb 25, 2016 at 9:08 AM
we're doing a custom version of LDAPCP. I'm having troubles uninstalling the standard LDAPCP and deploying ours, and i have two questions :
  • The uninstall isnt smooth and we must force the feature and the claimprovider deletion manually. Wonder if you have to unselect the custom provider from the webapps, or even delete it, before retracting LDAPCP
  • After the custom install, LDAPCP says it already exists a ldapcp.config with that id. I'd say our devs didnt implement the config right, but i'm no dev :)
  • I have multiple DLL woes : can't load dll messages often appear when deploying / setting provider, and i saw quite a few ldapcp.dll in \TEMP, which afaik means windows ain't desinstalling them as it should.
Any feedback on these points?

whenever you uninstall LDAPCP standard or custom, you should always use those cmdlets (documented on homepage):
Disable-SPFeature -identity "LDAPCP"
Uninstall-SPSolution -Identity "LDAPCP.wsp"
Remove-SPSolution -Identity "LDAPCP.wsp"
The reason is because there is a bug in SharePoint, that I also explained in the homepage of the project (in "Developers corner" section)
