Installing Templates on Multiple Front-Ends

  Asked By: Jody    Date: Mar 27    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 982

We are preparing site templates for our MyClass SharePoint server. Since
each class is a site collection (like MySites), the templates need to be
installed in each web front-ends as global templates. However, we are
having a problem creating the sites programmatically because at site
creation time, we reference the template by its template ID, but the same
template ends up with different ID's on the different front-ends in the

I am looking for best practices to make sure not only that all WFE's have
the same templates, but that they hace the same ID's. Alternatively, does
anyone know of a way to reference templates by name rather than ID?

The best way to do this would be to create custom site  definitions
instead of site templates. Then install the custom site definitions
using a Solution to roll them out to the WFE's. That way you have a
global site definition duplicated on each WFE with the same ID.
