For couple of weeks I am trying to have support for BTDF built msi’s deployment across servers using BADT.
I have a beta version for this feature implemented in V2.1 of the BADT. The latest tool can be downloaded from codeplex.
The UI looks as below where one can select the : (Beta) Deploy BTDF msi on farm.
Once the msi is loaded the tool populates the required actions and some configuration details.
The configuration tab has the list of Install Wizard configurations from BTDF and you can enter these details at one place and those will be used across all the servers in the environment. No need to enter same details again and again across servers.
Environment is populated from the SettingsFileGenerator.xml bundled within msi.
I have tested the tool with Sample Applications that are with BTDF (Helloworld and Advanced).
With limited use on BTDF, I am not sure if more actions are needed here and I don’t have more cases to test the tool too. I would request the community to try the feature and suggest issues/ideas to make this robust.
