ECTS on an existing site

  Asked By: Karissa    Date: Oct 20    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1114

I've downloaded the ECTS Solution and we are looking at deploying it on an existing SharePoint site. We created the ADAM instance and the SQL db. But the Sharepoint setup procedures are looking for a new SharePoint installation on which it can create the site. Are there instructions available on how we can implement this on an existing site?

The ECTS should be able to be installed on an existing  site collection as described in the main document, but we have not tested this. I would definitely try this out on a non-production server first!

Basically, if you have a site  collection that you want to use, you will have to extend its web application to the extranet and modify the extranet's authentication method. You should already have a web application and site collection, so you can skip those steps.

Once this is done, you should be able to pick up the installation  process where you do the ECTS installation. Again, PLEASE do this in a test environment first. Second, definitely use the release version of the toolkit for a production environment.
