There are occasions when running the Content Matrix installer do not deploy the WSPs properly. You may see symptoms, such as time-out errors during deployment.
This can be caused by deployment failures on one or more servers in the farm, which prevent the solutions to deploy globally.
After running the typical install via the Content Matrix Setup utility (ContentMatrix_Web_Setup.exe or ContentMatrix_Offline_Setup.exe), the WSP files are put in the following locations:
64-bit systems: C:\Program Files (x86)\Metalogix\Content Matrix WSPs
32-bit systems: C:\Program Files\Metalogix\Content Matrix WSPs
The Content Matrix WSPs can be deployed manually using PowerShell or STSADM. However, it is important that you follow a specific order when deploying the Metalogix Extensions Web Service (MEWS) solution manually:
Both solutions are found in the SharePoint Extensions Web Service x.x.xxxx sub-folder , where the version matches the console version you are currently running. A separate installer for the Metalogix Extensions Web Service (MEWS) solution may also be downloaded here.
The Extensions Solution has a dependency on the Shared Solution. If you do not follow the proper order, you may get the following error message:
Error occurred in deployment step 'Add Solution': Index (zero based) must be greater than or equal to zero and less than the size of the argument.
In SharePoint 2010, 2013 and 2016 farms, use the following PowerShell commands to install the Metalogix Extensions Web Service (MEWS) solution:
Add-SPSolution -LiteralPath "C:\Program Files (x86)\Metalogix\Content Matrix WSPs\SharePoint Extensions Web Service X.X.XXXX\Metalogix.SharePoint.Shared.X.X.X.X.wsp" Add-SPSolution -LiteralPath "C:\Program Files (x86)\Metalogix\Content Matrix WSPs\SharePoint Extenions Web Service X.X.XXXX\Metalogix.SharePoint.Adapters.Extensions.X.X.X.X.wsp" Install-SPSolution -Identity Metalogix.SharePoint.Shared.X.X.X.X.wsp -GACDeployment -Force Install-SPSolution -Identity Metalogix.SharePoint.Adapters.Extensions.X.X.X.X.wsp -GACDeployment -Force
In SharePoint 2007 environments, use the following STSADM commands to install the Metalogix Extensions Web Service (MEWS) solution:
STSADM -o addsolution -filename "C:\Program Files (x86)\Metalogix\Content Matrix WSPs\SharePoint Extensions Web Service X.X.XXXX\Metalogix.SharePoint.Shared.X.X.X.X.wsp" STSADM -o deploysolution -name Metalogix.SharePoint.Adapters.Extensions.X.X.X.X.wsp -AllowGACDeployment -Force
NOTE: Replace X.X.X.X with the version number of the current installation of Content Matrix.
